30 Vehicles To Make World Debut As 10-Day Los Angeles Auto Show Opens Today:

The Los Angeles Auto Show begins its 10-day run at the Los Angeles Convention Center today, offering a mix of luxury and practicality among the record 30 vehicles making their world debuts.

More than 63 percent of global debuts are luxury and performance vehicles while 20 percent are SUVs and crossover utility vehicles, according to show organizers. Another 30 vehicles will be making their North American debuts.

Auto Show President Lisa Kaz said the show’s debut lineup would “deliver the best of what’s to come…”

Audi’s two world debuts and six North American debuts include the TTs Roadster, TTS Coupe and the 2016 A6 and A7 model lines.

“The original Audi TT set a new standard for automotive design with its quintessentially clean Bauhaus line,” Audi of America President Scott Keogh said. “The all-new TT combines incredible technology, performance and design that epitomizes our brand and sets a new standard all its own.”

The A6 and A7 sedans include new headlights, engines and infotainment systems, Keogh said.

“The 2016 A6 and A7 model lines will continue to drive our momentum in the upper-premium market by elevating the standard for vehicle technology,” Keogh said. “These cars represent the perfect balance of beautiful design, efficiency and performance.”

The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S and Mercedes-Maybach S600 will make their world debuts while the Mercedes-AMG C63 and GT S, Mercedes-Benz S550 plug-in hybrid and CLS63 AMG will make their North American debuts.

Porsche’s world debuts are two GTS models, the 911 Carrera GTS and Cayenne GTS, the Cayenne V6 and Cayenne Diesel and Panamera Turbo S Executive Exclusive Series, a special edition limited to 100 units worldwide.

Acura will use the show for the world debut of its re-engineered ILX sport sedan.

Mazda will have four vehicles make their world debuts — the CX-3 compact crossover; the fourth-generation MX-5 roadster; and updated and revised models of the Mazda6 midsize sedan and CX-5 crossover.

Other vehicles making their world debuts include Cadillac’s ATS-V coupe and sedan; the Chrysler 300; the Ford Explorer and Mustang Shelby GT350; Jaguar’s F-Type all-wheel drive and manual models; and Volvo V60 Cross Country.

Other North American debuts include BMW’s 2 Series convertible and X6; Honda’s HR-V crossover; the Fiat 500X; Ford Focus ST; KIA Sorento; Land Rover Discovery Sport; Volkswagen’s Golf R Variant compact sports car; and Volvo XC90.

The show will be open from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. today; 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday; 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday; 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday through Wednesday; 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Thanksgiving; 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Nov. 28-29 and 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Nov. 30.

The entrance closes one hour before the show closing.

Tickets are $15 for Friday through Sunday admission and $12 Monday through Thursday. Tickets are $10 for people age 65 and older and $5 for children ages 6-12. Children 5 and under are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.
