2011 LA Auto Show: More than 50 new cars set to be shown in the City of Angels

Consumer Reports News: November 15, 2011 11:23 AM

The doors are set to open at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Wednesday morning, November 16th, to give auto industry insiders and the media access to the major new-car show two days ahead of the public opening. Several Consumer Reports staffers will be on hand to witness the more than 50 scheduled vehicle debuts and share the highlights here in the Cars blog, as well as in the special LA Auto Show section. Be sure to follow us on Twitter @CRCars to catch the news and photos uploaded direct from the show floor.

Among the cars we expect to see are the BMW 3 Series, Cadillac XTS, Chevrolet Spark, Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Hyundai Azera, Mazda CX-5, and Volkswagen CC, among others.

Typically the LA Auto Show has a green theme, and there are a few electric vehicles scheduled to debut like the Honda Fit EV and Chevrolet Spark EV, but freshenings and redesigns of some popular models and some new technologies will be highlighted, as well.

Throughout the week, we will continue to update our coverage with new information and pictures from LA.

If you're in the area and wish to attend the event, check our show information.

The auto show season is well under way and LA is the first stop in our journey before the Consumer Electronics Show and Detroit auto show in January. We hope you join us for the ride.
