Los Angeles Auto Show

  • 2018 Lexus RX L

    Talk of a Lexus crossover SUV with third-row seats dates back quite a few years. Lexus even rolled out a concept previewing such a model as early as the 2003 New York International Auto Show, the HPX. Lexus put off a production version, though, deeming the segment too mainstream for a luxury player. Instead, it offered its rugged GX and LX body-on-frame SUV to buyers seeking a third row. However, the allure of crossover sales is simply too strong to ignore as Lexus will unveil the new RX L 3-row, 7-seat crossover at this month’s 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. Lexus has been developing the...

  • Teaser for Infiniti SUV debuting at 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show

    Infiniti has released a teaser sketch for what the automaker is calling its “most advanced” vehicle ever. Unfortunately that’s all the information we have right now. The vehicle, which judging from the teaser will be an SUV, makes its debut in Los Angeles in the same week the city’s annual auto show opens its doors. That means the mystery SUV isn’t the redesigned QX80 which has also been teased. We’ll see the new QX80 at next week’s 2017 Dubai Motor Show. One possibility for the identity of the vehicle is the redesigned QX50 which is due on sale in...

  • Volkswagen Passat GT concept, 2016 Los Angeles auto show

    Volkswagen has let its North American engineering team cook up something interesting for the 2016 Los Angeles auto show, on this week. That something arrived in the shape of a Passat, and it came bearing GT badging.
