Los Angeles has always been a city of cars, so it’s no surprise that the annual car show held there is an event of grand proportions. Those attending the show, which runs from November 18-27, will witness firsthand the international unveiling of automakers' latest models. Many futuristic concept cars will be introduced, along with plenty of cars that will hit the market just a few months after the event. This gathering of soon-to-be available cars makes the show a prime spot for comparison shopping. In addition to automobiles, the event features many technology and car-related exhibits. This year, over 40 vehicles are slated to make their debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show, including forward-thinking electrics like the BMW i Series and luxurious new crossovers like the Infiniti JX.
