At the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, Japanese automaker Mazda presented the 2018 Mazda6, which made a lot of people very excited. But that was not the only vehicle that they brought over to the City of Angels. Alongside it was the updated version of the RT-24P racing coupe, and this time, the race car wears a striking red paint that, without a doubt, will catch your attention. The motorsport spec machine will also compete in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship’s 2018 season.

If you were not aware, Mazda has taken the updated RT-24P to several places in the past couple of months like Hockenheim and Donington Park. And during the LA Auto Show, it had competition livery on that uses Mazda’s eye-catching Soul Red Crystal paint.

At this moment, we cannot judge how the RT-24P will perform as a race car, but what it promises is that it will be one of the most beautiful cars on the circuit. For instance, the body has gorgeous lines that flow over the vehicle’s body, making the coupe look fast even if it is just parked. It has got an angular air scoop in exposed carbon fiber that creates a visual division with its already smooth shape. Furthermore, it comes with huge diffusers at the front and rear, which is a sign that this Mazda is race-ready.

2018 Mazda6 before its actual debut at the 2017 LA Auto Show

At the upcoming 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show later this month, one of the cars that will be shown is the next generation Mazda6. The Japanese manufacturer is set to debut not the concept, but the final production version of the model that has thoroughly been re-engineered.

Now, we have here the very first teaser of the Mazda6 that shows the car’s exterior. Dressed in a bold and shiny red paint, it looks like it will retain the main characteristics of the current Mazda6, such as the muscular wheel arches and short overhangs. The one difference you would notice is probably the revised front end, just like that of the refreshed CX-5. This means that Mazda6 will come with a larger radiator grille that will be surrounded with a set of more aggressive headlights.

Moving into the cabin, there will be a reshaped center console, together with new controls for the climate system. These are the only changes that we could see in the photos, but there will likely be more that we do not know of just yet.

An intense breed of race car combined with highly extreme aerodynamics, this very much defines the concept behind Mazda RT24-P seen at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. The super hot prototype model was labelled RT24-P in reference to Mazda’s “Road to 24” driver scholarship programme.

John Doonan, Mazda Sports Director expressed his gratitude about having a racecar that features their design philosophy. The strong spoilers and immense wings represent the company’s Kodo design language. Doonan added how this opportunity is very significant for all of them as a team. He believes there is so much more to reveal and we can finally learn about these things during the race.

Riley Technologies teamed up with Multimatic to develop the RT24-P’s chassis design. The American-Canadian tandem’s own take on the concept machine has resulted on the highly exceptional front-end and bodyworks. These two were also responsible for the prototype’s large horizontal rear wing, vertical fin and curved splitter.

Japanese carmaker Mazda Motor Corp. is all set to unveil the latest iteration of its CX-5 compact crossover at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show starting Friday, November 18. For the 2017 model year, the Mazda CX-5 has been redesigned with a new color paint that should allow this crossover to increase its appeal and emotional connection with its owners.

The styling changes on the new CX-5 were a result of adopting a number of design cues from the latest version of its larger crossover sibling, the CX-9. For instance, its front end now comes with a broader grille flanked by arched headlights. The front end is also marked by a narrow lower intake that links to the running lights, thereby further highlighting the width of the CX-5. When viewed from the sides, the new CX-5 looks the same as its predecessor, but it now features extra chrome around its windows. Meanwhile, the rear end of compact crossover is marked by sharper taillights.

In a bid to increase the exterior appeal of its offerings, Mazda has developed a new body color that represents its KODO - Soul of Motion design. The new 2017 Mazda CX-5 is the first vehicle in the carmaker’s lineup to don this new color, which will then be applied to new and current models. Soul Red Crystal is an advanced version of Soul Red. Soul Red Crystal features 20-percent better color saturation and 50-percent more depth than Soul Red.

Nearly a decade after the first-generation Mazda CX-9 made its debut, the carmaker has finally unveiled its successor at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. Mazda sold the first-generation CX-9 as a 2007 model, and it plans to market the new CX-9 as a 2016 model.

In 2006, Mazda CX-9 quickly gained the attention of the automotive market thanks to its radical design cues as well as the driving enjoyment typically absent from its rivals in its class. The second generation Mazda CX-9 builds on that momentum but with more surprises on hand.

For instance, the new MY2016 Mazda CX-9 represents the latest rendition and the most impressive of Mazda's KODO—Soul of Motion design yet. This midsize crossover features a proud front fascia with crisp lines flowing to the rear.

According to the German premium carmaker, the production version of the Audi e-tron GT concept is set to arrive in around two years. This means that could expect the third member of the e-tron family by late 2020, with initial deliveries set in early 2021. It follows the Audi e-tron SUV as well as the Audi e‑tron Sportback scheduled for 2019.

As designed, the Audi e-tron GT concept features the proportions of a classic Gran Turismo – flat and wide with a long wheelbase – as reflected on its dimensions of 4.96 meters (16.3 ft.) in length, 1.96 meters (6.4 ft.) in width and 1.38 meters (4.5 ft.) in height. Its overall shape is marked by a gently sloping roofline extending into the rear, a cabin tapering strongly toward the rear, well-sculpted wheel arches and shoulders as well as a flat floor that is unusual for an EV. The e-tron GT concept is wrapped in a new exterior color kinetic dust, which is a warm, dark color similar to titanium.

The grille is flanked by matrix LED headlights with laser high beam as well as animated function. The large front air inlets helps in effective cooling of the assemblies, battery and brakes while the hood echoes Audi’s Aicon and PB18 e-tron show cars.

German sports car maker Porsche is making its presence the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show felt further by unveiling to the global public its new Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport. If you’re familiar with the street-legal yet track-focused outgoing 991-generation of the 911 GT2 RS, then the 911 GT2 RS Clubsport is basically its racing version.

As racing version, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport can only be driven on the tracks, which means that this race car is the carmaker’s newest attempt to lure in racing enthusiasts. The 911 GT2 RS Clubsport can be raced at clubsport-style events, including those organized by Porsche Club of America, as well as at a possible future racing series organized by SRO.

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport shouldn’t be mistaken for the no-cost optional Club Sport package offered for the 911 GT2 RS in Europe, but not in the United States. There are a number of differences, but we would focus only on the Clubsport model, not the package.

The last time the Lincoln Aviator premium SUV made it to the streets was more than a decade ago. It was only produced for three years, and the 2005 model year was the last version of the Aviator produced. Now, the Aviator is set to take off once again, as recently unveiled at 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Lincoln is once again ready to demonstrate that its premium SUV offering isn't just for luxurious utility, but also for power and capability.

More than a month ago since introducing the BMW X7 to the global public, the German premium carmaker has unveiled its flagship SUV to the North American audience at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. This is quite ironic since the BMW X7 is built at the carmaker’s Spartanburg manufacturing site in South Carolina.

There is quite no need to tell all the details about the new BMW X7. Nonetheless, the X7 that will soon arrive in the United States will be available in two guises, powered only by petrol engines. As what BMW has revealed, the X7 SUV will be offered either as the X7 xDrive40i or the X7 xDrive50i. The BMW X7 xDrive40i has a core in the persona of a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six engine. This mill is tuned to deliver 335 hp (250 kW) of max output as well as 330 lb.-ft. (447 Nm). This power is enough for the xDrive40i to accelerate from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 5.8 seconds.

On the other hand, BMW is offering a more powerful version of the X7 SUV, which would be an ideal fit for customers who wanted to squeeze more performance from the flagship. The BMW X7 xDrive50i will be powered by a newly developed twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine that can deliver 456 hp (340 kW) of max motive power as well as 479 lb.-ft. (649 Nm) of peak torque. This engine can send the X7 xDrive50i sprinting from nil to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.2 seconds, or around 0.6 seconds quicker than the X7 xDrive40i.

What happens when the Jeep Wrangler off-road expert utility transforms into a pickup up? Jeep has the answer unveiled at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show in form of the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator. The brand calls the Gladiator as the most capable midsize truck ever, as it combines a number of qualities that any 4x4 enthusiast would want for his or her pickup truck.

The 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show is playing host to a number of debuts, especially SUVs. Hyundai won't let itself be left out as the South Korean carmaker unveiled its own SUV flagship at the LA event – the all-new 2020 Hyundai Palisade mid-size SUV. Set to be built at the carmaker’s manufacturing plant in Ulsan, South Korea, the 2020 Hyundai Palisade is scheduled to arrive dealerships across the United States in the summer of 2019.

Hyundai’s new Palisade could be the brand’s answer to the growing demand for larger SUVs. It does offer a seven-seat SUV in the guise of the Hyundai Santa Fe XL. However, the Hyundai Santa Fe XL is basically just a slightly larger version of the Santa Fe five-seat SUV. Some customers might find other similarly sized SUVs from other carmakers as more spacious.

To answer the call, Hyundai create the new Palisade, which it says offers enough room to accommodate eight occupants and their cargo. Furthermore, the Palisade promises to deliver a host of technologies and offer great levels of safety.

When Toyota released a teaser image of its 2019 Prius sedan, the most obvious scene is that the car is sitting on snow. Driving on such conditions would be more favorable if a car has an all-wheel drive configuration. This led to a speculation that the new Toyota Prius would be getting an AWD version. Now, this isn't a speculation anymore, as Toyota has already confirmed and revealed at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show the arrival of the 2019 Toyota Prius AWD-e.

Toyota’s new AWD-e system is quite different from the typical all-wheel drive configuration. But with the new AWD-e system, the Prius expands its "Let's Go Places" battlecry to "Let's go more places, in more conditions." Of course, the 2019 Prius is still available in its classic front-wheel drive layout.

This is how Toyota's AWD-e system works. Instead of using a center differential, a torque-apportioning device, or a front-to-rear driveshaft, this AWD-e system employs a magnet-less rear motor to power the rear wheels from nil to 6 mph, up to speeds of 43 mph. Since this an automatic on-demand system, it only activates when needed, such as when pulling away from a stop. When the AWD-e system senses that all-wheel-drive performance isn't needed for the driving situation, it won't activate.

Porsche has finally unveiled the eight generation of its iconic sports car on the eve of the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. The Porsche 911 enters the 992 generation with two all-new offerings for the 2020 model year. More powerful and more dynamic than before, the new 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S make use of the formula that made the 911 an icon, making them a true 911.

Outside, the new 2020 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S are easily identifiable as Porsche models; after all the Porsche design DNA is timeless. Moreover, the exterior of the new 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S now look more muscular than before. This is made possible by its wider wheel housings that accommodate 20-inch front wheels and 21-inch rear wheels.

Compared to their predecessors, the all-new 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S are wider on the front by 45 mm (1.77 inches) as well as on the rear to 1,852 mm (72.91 in), making them as wide as the previous 911 Carrera 4 and 911 GTS models. Interestingly, the entire outer skin is now made from aluminum, except from front and rear fascias.
