<p>Filed under: <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/category/chicago-auto-show/" rel="tag">Chicago Auto Show</a></p><img alt="Autoblog's 2013 Chicago Auto Show - coverage graphic" src="http://www.blogcdn.com/www.autoblog.com/media/2013/02/autoshowchicago2013.jpg" style="margin-top: 4px; margin-bottom: 4px; width: 628px; height: 308px;" /><br /><br />It's funny, you can technically refer to this week's Chicago expo as both the largest and smallest North American auto show on the media circuit. On one hand, McCormick Place offers the most expansive show floor, meaning that, technically, it's the largest; but in terms of the amount of actual news and vehicle debuts, Chicago is by far the smallest show. Ironic, don'tcha think?<br /><br />Nevertheless, we're having a good time here in the Windy City at the show's 105th installment(!), and while there wasn't a great deal to ooh and aah over on Day One, there's still a lot to talk about at the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/chicago-auto-show">Chicago Auto Show</a>. We've collected all of the posts from our coverage today and grouped them together in handy roundup format for your perusal below. Enjoy!<br /><br /><style type="text/css">#content .quick_scan_post h2 a {color:#1567B6 !important}</style>
