The L.A. Motor Show - Bigger And Better

Greater Los Angeles Auto Show
Los Angeles! City of Angels - and fast cars. The Los Angeles Auto Show in November (22/11 - 1/12) will host no less than twenty-two world debuts from thirteen brands, according to the organizers.

The brands are BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Porsche, Nissan, Subaru and Toyota. Mercedes-Benz will reveal four models, show organizers said, in addition to North American debuts of the GLA 250 and S63.

Porsche will have two world debuts in addition to plans announced earlier to show the Macan compact crossover for the first time - and about time too.

In July, show organizers thought that just nine brands would have world debuts. It seems that Volkswagen was among the nine, but changed its plans which is curious. The car makers added to the roster since then are Hyundai, Jaguar, Land Rover, Nissan and Toyota. Nissan will reveal a version of the Juke overhauled by its Nismo performance division and, in addition, a Nismo concept car.

Motor shows in Tokyo and Guangzhou, China, are scheduled to overlap with the L.A. show, and the organizers are trying to attract global media to Los Angeles during press days on Nov. 19th to 21st to maximise coverage.

A Hyundai spokesman said the company will have "significant alternative fuel vehicle news" at the show but does not plan to introduce any new or redesigned product. It seems like every country in the world is having a motor show. This is a bad idea as the cancellation of this year’s Italian Motor Show in Bologna has proved. Only the best will survive and Los Angeles is looking like one of the best.
