The International Auto Expo, which bills itself as the largest new-car display in the Intermountain area, opens a four-day run Friday at the South Towne Expo Center in Sandy.

The event features automobiles, exhibits and displays, including a chance to test-drive different types of cars and trucks.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday and Monday.

Admission is $8 for adults 13 and older; $6 for seniors 62 and older, military and children 7 to 12. Kids 12 and younger are admitted free on Sunday which has been designated as Kids Day as well as on Monday, designated as Family Day, when accompanied by an adult.

Expogoers will receive a free one-year subscription to Motor Trend magazine with each online ticket order (www.AutoExpoUtah.com) or box-office purchase.

McDonald's offers discount coupons for one $5 adult admission. People buying tickets online can get a $1 discount.

"The Utah International Auto Expo is the largest new-car display in the Intermountain area," said Craig Bickmore, executive director of the New Car Dealers of Utah, the association that owns the expo. "In addition to having a lot of fun, our goal is to educate the public about the exciting new vehicles coming to the market to meet their automobile needs. The best way to do that is with a one-stop approach at the expo."

Test drives of Ford, Chevrolet, Buick and GMC vehicles will be available.

The event also features an interactive Jeep test track, displays of high-end exotic cars and a look at pre-production 2013 models.

Exhibits on sound systems are also part of the event.
