Greater Los Angeles is one of the world’s 40 crowded megacities, in need of low-pollution commuter cars. Still, the LA Auto Show has plenty of SUVs, crossovers and trucks being unveiled as well, since this is really the premier auto show for all the southwest.
Here’s our take on the best cars of the show, which runs through Sunday, Dec. 10, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The tech star of the show is the Infiniti VC-T (“variable compression-turbocharged”) engine, in the 2018 QX50 compact SUV. Fuel economy climbs by as much as one-third over a comparable V6.
Los Angeles shifted from two press days to an entire week that also includes several days of conferences, speeches, and seminars, collectively called AutoMobility 2017. Once in the shadow of the Detroit auto show when LA was held in January, the LA show is now stealing thunder from CES, just six weeks away.
