One hundred and eight years later and still going strong, the Los Angeles Auto Show was open to the public at the Los Angeles Convention Center from Nov. 20-29.

The event debuted nearly 30 vehicles including concept cars and newer 2016 and 2017 models from 37 carmakers.

A nice change to the usual uncomfortable atmosphere that is auto dealerships, automakers like Honda, Mercedes-Benz and Scion gave attendees the option to test-drive their vehicles around the streets of Downtown Los Angeles in an event called Ride & Drive.

Crossovers and small SUVs were a popular feature from automakers at the event. Scion, Infiniti, and Ford all displayed or debuted these types of vehicles.

From the showcase Toyota’s highly anticipated redesign of the Prius to a room full of custom cars from Galpin Auto Sports, practicability and style were in mind for all aspects of the event.
