These Cars Made Their Red Carpet Debuts in La La Land

The 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show kicked off the U.S. auto show season with a host of all-new vehicle introductions, redesigned versions of some popular models, and glimpses into the future of automobiles. Electrification was at the forefront of many of this year’s intros. 

The LA Auto Show is one of the largest in the country for the introduction of new cars. Automakers from around the world use the LA show, along with the North American International Auto Show (also known as the Detroit Auto Show) and the New York Auto Show to show their cutting edge vehicles.

Headlining the show was the 2020 Ford Mustang Mach-E, a battery-electric crossover with lively performance and a healthy dose of Mustang heritage. New plug-in hybrids include the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime and 2020 Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring. Nissan’s torrent of sedan intros continued, with a fully-redesigned 2020 Nissan Sentra. 

The hottest part of the market continues to be the SUV market. The Los Angeles Auto Show hosted debuts of the all-new 2020 Mazda CX-30 and 2021 Kia Seltos.

We’ve chosen the top debuts from the Los Angeles International Auto Show, including many that were first shown at private events on the days leading up to the show. On the following pages, you'll not only see the basics about the new models but also why they're important additions in the marketplace.
