The studios of Hollywood aren’t the only places where you’ll find spotlights and excitement in Los Angeles. In downtown LA, the Los Angeles International Auto Show is launching this year’s major auto show season, with more than 60 new vehicle and concept car introductions.

The biggest debuts included the long-awaited Jeep Gladiator pickup, a redesigned Kia Soul, the latest generation of the iconic Porsche 911, and a reimagined Mazda3 hatchback and sedan. There were products from automotive startups Rivian and Byton, previewing vehicles that may or may not ever make it to the market.

One of the biggest headlines from the show came from Volvo, who had a massive display filled with no cars at all. In an illustration of how auto shows are changing, they used their space to show different technologies and ideas for the future.

Another trend seen this year is the presence of the growing powersports vehicle market, where some models can seat up to four and rival the performance of mainstream cars and SUVs. Honda chose the LA show to debut the their newest Talon model, while Polaris displayed their full lineup of Slingshot three-wheelers.

In addition to hundreds of shiny new cars you'll be able to buy next year, there are concepts of vehicles to come, plus technology displays that demonstrate state-of-the-art infotainment and safety systems.

Those of you in the LA area can head down to the Los Angeles Convention Center between November 30 and December 9 to see the show. If you can’t make it, click through the following pages to see the sights of this year’s LA Auto Show.
