2016 Mazda CX-9
When the Mazda CX-9 made its world debut back in 2006, it was an epiphany: A midsize three-row crossover SUV that defied the conventional design cues and cumbersome driving experience expected of vehicles in its class. Despite being a large vehicle, CX-9 is, after all, still a Mazda. CX-9 quickly captivated the automotive industry, winning numerous accolades.
Now comes the encore: the latest, grandest expression of KODO—Soul of Motion design yet and the high-end model of Mazda's new-generation lineup. Its cachet is elevated with a proud front fascia that cascades into crisp lines that flow to the rear. Its interior is nothing short of breathtaking, with available Auburn-colored Nappa leather, Japanese rosewood and aluminum. The focus was on authenticity; an experience rather than simply another commodity conveyance.
2017 Hyundai Elantra
Hyundai today reveals its all-new 2017 Elantra at the Los Angeles Auto Show. As one of Hyundai's all time best-selling models, the new Elantra enters its sixth-generation building on the momentum and success of its proven award-winning formula and strong value proposition by offering a bold aerodynamic design with sophisticated styling, all-new efficient powertrains for enhanced fuel economy, better ride quality and noise insulation, and comprehensive safety with class-above features.
Assembled in both Montgomery, Alabama and Úlsan, South Korea, the new Elantra distinguishes itself from the compact car class with the addition of segment-first premium convenience and safety technologies, and is expected to receive a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and a 5-Star Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The 2017 Elantra will arrive at Hyundai dealers in January.
2017 Mitsubishi Mirage
The new Mitsubishi Mirage enters the 2017 model year with a new exterior design, improved performance and enhanced interior appeal. Despite all that is new for Mirage in 2017, a few things didn't change at all—Mirage still offers outstanding fuel economy, attractive pricing and industry leading new vehicle and powertrain warranties.
Mirage receives a fresh new look with redesigned hood, grille, front and rear bumper, fog and headlamps, rear spoiler and wheels. The exterior styling was given purpose, with an aerodynamic design to improve fuel-efficiency and a simple, restrained form to help reduce weight, creating a car in which form and function come together. The new styling enhancements made to the 2017 Mirage give it a sleek, clean look and reduce the coefficient of drag (Cd) to 0.27.
Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
Today Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) made the world debut of the 2016 Outlander Sport and 2017 Mirage at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. Both vehicles, which are rooted in the brand's principles of unmatched value, attractive pricing, and industry leading new vehicle and powertrain warranties, feature new designs which bring a unified look to the Mitsubishi lineup.
'North America is a vital market to Mitsubishi Motors, as evidenced by the two world introductions we made today at the LA Auto Show,' said Don Swearingen, executive vice president, MMNA. 'Outlander Sport leads the brand in overall sales, and the improvements debuted today will further its demand. The Mirage is a vehicle that has already gained popularity with its affordable and practical appeal, and that will certainly carry over into the 2017 model year with its improved looks and performance.'

New appearance for an automotive icon: the beginning of 2016 will see the start of customer orders for the Mercedes-Benz SL which will be available from April 2016 with a host of significantly enhanced technical and visual features. More powerful engines, the automatic transmission 9G-TRONIC, DYNAMIC SELECT with five transmission modes and Active Body Control with the curve tilting function all take the legend to a new dynamic level. The high suitability for everyday use has been enhanced with the vario- roof, which can now be operated at up to 40 km/h, and the automatic boot separator. Visually the front end in particular has been made significantly sportier. As a result the bonnet, bumper and headlamps, among other features, are all new.
The Subaru Impreza Sedan Concept
The all-new Impreza will be the first example of Subaru's next-generation vehicles using a new modular platform. The design is sportier and less angular than the previous generation Impreza, but with a powerful stance expressing Subaru's new Dynamic x Solid design language. The new design direction hints at not only the new Impreza design, but of Subaru's future models.
