The Los Angeles Auto Show doesn’t boast the international awareness that rival auto shows in New York and Detroit enjoy, but it still manages to draw in the big crowds with a handful of important reveals every year. The annual show in L.A. is typically where automakers present their models that are about to hit showrooms and this year looks to be no different.

Overnight, organizers of the show confirmed that at least nine automakers will showcase world premieres. They are BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Porsche, Subaru and Volkswagen.

There was no mention of what any of the vehicles might be, but we already have a few clues.

Chevrolet is expected to reveal new versions of its Tahoe and Suburban full-size SUVs soon, and it’s likely one of these will be shown in L.A. or possibly both. Mercedes-Benz was recently reported to be revealing its new S65 AMG in L.A. and MINI its new Cooper. A concept version of the new Cooper, the MINI Vision, has already been revealed and is set for a debut at next month’s 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show.

Porsche will be presenting its new Macan crossover in L.A. and from Subaru we might see a redesigned Legacy or perhaps the long-awaited BRZ STI model. Finally, Volkswagen is expected to introduce its new Jetta SportWagon, which will essentially be an Americanized version of the MkVII Golf Variant on sale overseas for almost a year.  

Though Cadillac wasn’t mentioned in the list above, the American luxury brand is also tipped to reveal a new model in L.A., possibly its upcoming ATS Coupe or redesigned Escalade SUV.

In addition to the nine confirmed world premiers, organizers have also revealed that there will be more than 40 North American debuts at the L.A. Auto Show this year as well. Press days commence on November 20 and the Motor Authority team will be out in force at the show. You can catch our ongoing coverage via our dedicated hub.
