LA AUTO SHOW
Organisers of next month's Los Angeles Auto Show have confirmed the event will host the premiere of 22 concepts and new or updated models.
MINI's all-new Cooper hatch is also expected to debut at the show, coming after months of revealing spy photos. The new Cooper will ride on MINI's new UKL1 platform, with styling previewed by the recent Vision concept.
The Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 and S 63 AMG performers will make their US market debut at the LA show, and it is believed the more powerful S 65 AMG could join them. Three other unidentified models are also expected.
Volkswagen will give its e-Golf electric hatch a US market debut in LA, among four other cars. Audi will show three cars, although it has not confirmed which.
Cadillac's big new Escalade, revealed this week, will make its world premiere in LA, and the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Suburban SUVs are expected to join it.
Subaru has confirmed plans to reveal a new model in LA - and if recent comments from Subaru Australia boss Nick Senior are anything to go by, it will likely be the all-new WRX sedan, due here early next year.
Other brands with premieres planned for LA include Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Land Rover, and Toyota - although none have offered details on what we'll see.
