Leasehackr will be attending this year’s auto show. We’ll be providing updates and observations in this thread. What cars are you excited about?
Audi will be debuting the production e-tron GT. As a large, all-electric five-door coupe, e-tron GT will compete directly against Tesla’s Model S.
BMW will be debuting the 8-series Cabriolet in Los Angeles. We’re more interested in seeing the all-new 3-series, Z4, and ginormous X7 in person. Does the perennial Leasehackr-favorite 3-series have what it takes to be the segment leader again?
Byton will be showing two of its production-intent concept cars. Is this just another all-electric Chinese-funded startup, or do they mean business?
Honda will be debuting the all-new Passport, a two-row midsized SUV that fits between CR-V and Pilot. Perhaps Honda will find more success with this model than their last Isuzu-based Passport.
Hyundai will be debuting Palisade, a large upscale SUV. Will we see Palisades showing up on driveways in the Palisades, or will it suffer the fate of the poor-selling Veracruz?
Jeep will debut Gladiator, a Wrangler pick-up. Will Gladiator have a useful cargo bed?
Kia will debut the third-generation Soul. We wouldn’t be surprised if Soul becomes more SUV-like than before. Will AWD finally be an option?
Lincoln will reveal the production Aviator. We hope this baby Navigator retains the flair of the concept, which debuted last year.
Mazda will debut the all-new Mazda3. The current model has been a segment leader in driving dynamics, if not sales. We’re curious how the new car will improve.
Mercedes might surprise us with a Mercedes-Maybach GLS, competition against vulgar luxobarges like Bentley Bentayga. We’re also looking forward to checking out the new A-Class, G-Class, and GLE-Class.
Porsche will unveil the all-new 911. Nuff said.
Rivian will show their all-electric R1T pick-up truck. The Big Three aren’t making electric trucks, so it looks like there’s an opportunity here for this start-up.
Subaru will debut Crosstrek Hybrid, a PHEV version of their mini-SUV slash tall hatchback thing.
Toyota will be showing the all-new Corolla Sedan, including a hybrid variant. There will also be an all-wheel-drive variant of the Prius. If it uses the AWD system from the UX 250h, expect a whopping 7 horsepower rear motor.
Volvo says it won’t be debuting any cars at all. Instead, there will be a sculpture, titled “This is not a car.” We hope they’ll still have a few S60s and V60s to check out.
