MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

New cars, trucks, and SUVs will fill Memphis Cook Convention Center this weekend.

Memphis International Auto Show will take place Friday through Sunday, highlighting brand new rides, some of which aren't even available yet, as well as the safety features available to drivers.

One feature that many of the cars will have is auto-brake. Auto-brake is the newest evolution of collision warning, except in this case, the car doesn't just warn you, it works to prevent you from crashing.

"There's a camera and radar-based system that actually scans for any objects in front of you, and it will automatically apply the brakes depending on how fast you're going," Trey Norcross, Volvo Cars of Memphis, said.

More than 250 new cars will be unveiled at the auto show.

"There is going to be so much to see," Norcross said. "There's going to be a lot of vendors, a lot of dealers, a lot of cars. This is the largest it has ever been."

Other safety features you can expect to see include Lane keeping assistance, collision mitigation systems, and blind spot information systems.

All the safety features are designed to help reduce the number of crashes that happen on the road, in an effort to keep you and your beloved passengers safer than ever.

The Memphis International Auto Show is designed to make it easy to find what you're looking for in a car without forcing you to drive all over town.

"Typically you'd have to go dealer to dealer to look at each individual car. At the auto show, its a relaxed no pressure environment and you get to come in look at multiple cars," Norcross said.
