About our coverage
The first major event of the new-car show season, the LA Auto Show provided a sneak-peek at 2011 and 2012 models coming down the road during the months ahead. Consumer Reports auto editors and engineers were on hand to learn about these new vehicles and share candid first impressions.
Over two media days, we saw nearly 40 production models and concept cars including a number of world debuts. For our online coverage, we cut through the hype to present our insights on the most-significant vehicles.
The LA Auto Show is an attraction for automotive enthusiasts and car shoppers alike. While we will attend a show preview, each year, the event is open to the public. Attending a major auto show can be a useful research opportunity, with every new model under one roof in a non-sales environment.
