The Breath-Taking Quality of the 2016 LA Motor Show

The motoring world took to Los Angeles for the LA Motor show in November and as you may have guessed, this year was all about the debut of high profile SUV’s. The sheer magnificence of quality of these SUV’s made this year’s show a particular one of note, one that will go down in history as a vintage one to remember. Taking the starring role must surely have been the Jaguar’s I-Pace. Crowds gathered throughout the day to take in its beauty, which was particularly special as its appearance was not expected for a few more years yet. Alfa Romeo’s new Stelvio SUV was also never without an admiring crowd either. The crossover will be on the market as soon as the first quarter of next year and in the UK by the end of 2017. First impressions of this new vehicle were extremely positive. The other significant SUV to note was Mazda’s CX-5, which they say will introduce new design forms and will lead a rising demand for clean diesels in the US. Other highlights, the Sell Your Jamjar team noted included: • Whisperings by Mini that a battery powered Mini may be on its way in 2019 • The new Audi S5 made its US debut • The public saw Mini's new Countryman for the first time in LA • The 2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 is the quickest AMG yet • The sporty VW Passat GT concept will inspire a VR6 V6-engined production car in 2017 • The VW Atlas is a new, US-only seven-seat SUV • Honda's interior concept will appear first on the NSX, then all future production models • Porsche brought its new Panamera to LA • Honda revealed its Civic Si prototype - a sub-Type R model due for production next year • Cadillac showed its new plug-in hybrid CT6 • Lamborghini pulled the wraps off a rear-wheel-drive version of the Huracan Spyder
