LA Auto Show has long list of debuts


Just watched the Acura Debut of the RLX at the LA Auto Show as part of many new debuts coming out in today.  The RLX has a modified 4 wheel steering as part of the new packaging and interior.

Also being announced are:

The redesigned Porsche  Cayman, a new i concept from BMW, Honda’s  Civic redo and Ford’s  people-mover version of the Transit  Connect will vie for attention at the Los  Angeles auto show that begins this week.

The Cayman is based on the same platform used for the redesigned Porsche  Boxster that went on sale earlier this year. And BMW is looking to generate  more interest in its eco-focused i subbrand as the launch of its first vehicle,  the electric-powered i3, is now about a year away.

Ford’s seven-passenger minivan uses sliding doors and boasts enough interior  space to hold some 270 soccer balls. The new Subaru  Forester offers more space inside than the version it replaces but is no  bigger on the outside.

The Civic’s midcycle revamp is ready to roll just 18 months after Honda’s  much-criticized 2012 redesign hit the market. A new instrument panel and center  cluster are meant to address the gripes.

Other Los Angeles debuts include redesigns of the Kia  Forte and Toyota  RAV4. Electrics will be there, too. Chevrolet  will unveil an electric  version of the Spark and Fiat  has an electric  version of the 500.
