LA Auto Show 2018! Vehicle debuts and more


#21

Are they giving out $1000 PINs for JLR vehicles there by any chance?


#22

Does the rear end of the sedan look as odd as the hatch?


#23

“This is not a car - this is tariffs”


#24

Putting an S90 there would accomplish the same effect - Volvo - not a car that you want to buy brand new …


#25

I had assumed all 2019 Mazda3 were getting the new Skyactiv-X engines, but sounds like they’re reusing some of the old Skyactiv-G engines. Very confusing. Was interested in seeing what the hp/torque/MPG ratings on the new engine would be, but don’t think they announced it.


#26

The sedan version looks very conventional, like a mini Mazda6. The hatch is better in person; the design is growing on me. I’ll report back on blind spots. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


#27

Skyactiv X will be available in late 2019 but at launch they will only offer the reworked version of current skyactiv 2.5.


#28

The e-tron GT looks amazing. I personally like it much better than the dated Teslas


#29

The Hyundai Kona EV. And just… more EV’s in general, please. My B-class lease is up so I can’t wait around for the 2020’s!


#30

Wow that Mazda 3 looks like it would have terrible rear visibility.


#31

ooh they’ve actually got the E-Tron GT out on the mean streets of DTLA! I really hope they dont tone down the looks for production. It looks so goddamn good.

#32

its def gonna get toned down


#33

oh pah! Who needs door handles and functioning mirrors anyway. DESIGN!


#34

Wheels, ride height, suspension. Bet all those change on the production version


#36

oh, Jalopnik posted pix of the new Mazda 3 hatch blind spots from THOSE C-Pillars and uhm. Yeah. It’s dark back there! Maybe it’d be better with a lighter coloured seat?


#37

It definitely isn’t good, but my 2016 GTI’s rear visibility wasn’t much better.


#38

Who needs to ever look back? All have back up cameras these days :grin:


#39

Speaking of massive blind spots, I’ve seen a Camaro with the plates CANTCU (can’t see you)


#40

Lexus really needs separate design teams that don’t influence each other.

The LS500 looks a lot like what would be designed by the Camry and Avalon designers


#41

Its been happening like that for a while now.
