The L.A. Auto Show

Finding the Perfect Drive

As the week comes to a close, Los Angeles is ready to leave the Election in the rearview window by kicking things into high gear and welcome the L.A. Auto Show to the Los Angeles Convention Center in DTLA. In a town where the valet will judge you by your choice of wheels, there is only one thing hotter than an Oscar, and that’s a fine automobile.

In LaLa Land we live in our cars. Even if you aren’t from here, surely you’ve heard many times about our infamous traffic time after time in pop culture references. I mean, c’mon… SNL wrote an entire skit revolved around our bumper-to-bumper in The Californians.

So if you live here, there really isn’t a good excuse not to see the latest and greatest reveals from Alfa Romeo, Jeep, Kia, Mazda, Mini Cooper, Nissan, Porsche, and Volkswagen. A little SBC Birdie also told me we can expect to see concept cars from Acura, Infiniti, and Subaru.

Other reasons I am personally a fan of the L.A. Auto Show is because while I love fancy, fast rides, I’m also very concerned about the environment and during the show I have a chance to learn about electric and hybrid models. I’m also very excited to find out more about hydrogen fuel cell technology thanks to Lexus.

What many don’t know, is the LA Auto Show gives attendees the chance to test drive over 100 cars. This is such an amazing opportunity because we know when we are in the market for a new vehicle, test driving competing models back-to-back is the best way to get a genuine feel for the automobile and will help you make the best decision on which model is right for you.
