The 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show is the unofficial kick-off of the domestic auto show season, a period that runs from fall into late spring. Auto shows are typically held to give consumers the ability to consider multiple brands in a single place. A few of the larger domestic shows also host media previews prior to public days, where new models are introduced to the automotive press.
At this year's L.A. auto show, the press preview days will be the scene of several major product unveils that will eventually hit dealers later this year and in 2015. Honda has announced that its upcoming HR-V crossover will make its world premiere at the L.A. show, while Acura, Honda's luxury division, will unveil an updated version of its ILX sedan. On the high-dollar side, Audi is scheduled to unveil a concept that will preview its future design direction, while Mercedes is expected to show off an ultra-luxurious version of its S-Class sedan.
Other notable vehicles on hand will include the fully redesigned Mazda Miata, the all-new Land Rover Discovery Sport, the Jaguar XE sport sedan and a high-performance version of Cadillac's ATS sedan. We'll have coverage of press days starting on November 19, while public days run from November 21-30.
