2012 LA Auto Show
Along with the key American manufacturers, most of the big European and Japanese brands are at the show.
A number of cars have made their debut, including the Jaguar XFR-S, all-new Toyota RAV4 and Chevrolet Spark EV.
The Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet has been revealed to the public, too, and the Hyundai Veloster C3 Roll Top gives an idea of how a soft-top Veloster could look.
The 2013 Mini Countryman is also at the show, while the face-lifted Ford Fiesta and new Subaru Forester have made their US debuts.
The Mercedes-Benz Ener-G Force concept car – a radical vision of what a G-Class could look like in 2025 – is one of the stars of the show.
