GM Automobile Magazine SMT


When Automobile Magazine’s recent article “The Top Ten Cheapest Cars with Active Safety Technologies” mentioned FOUR GM cars (the 2014 Buick Verano, the 2014 Buick Encore,  the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, and the 2014 Chevrolet Impala 1LT) the GM team knew right away this was a “must do” Satellite Media Tour. They put together a fabulous tour that not only the client loved, but also the media.
