2015BMWX6M

Dial M for motorsports. BMW is introducing the race-ready variants of its X5 sport activity vehicle and X6 sport activity coupe this week at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, on track for a spring 2015 release. Consistent with their performance purposes, the X5 M and X6 M rock aggressive-looking racing cues such as enlarged scoops, 21-inch wheels, unique tiers, rear diffusers, quad tailpipes and monochrome blue or gray metallic paint.

Both the M and M boast sweet interior flourishes, too. Sporty cues in the cabin include a unique steering wheel, paddle shifters and gauges, Merino leather seats with contrast stitching and M badging, a simulated Alcantara headliner, a Nappa-covered dash and plenty of aluminum trim. The X5 M starts at $99,650 and the X6 M at $103,050, including destination.

Fiat is expanding its tiny lineup of cars with an SUV that may be the biggest Fiat yet, but is still pretty compact. The 2016 500X, debuting at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, is based on the new Jeep Renegade subcompact SUV but wears distinctive Fiat-branded styling.

Where the Renegade looks rugged, Fiat's version strikes a more whimsical look. Two wide, slatlike grille openings divided by the Fiat logo are front and center, flanked by perky, wide-eyed headlights.

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Photo Gallery (25 Photos)

Mazda's roadster excels at turning an everyday drive into a thrill ride, and although it got a big styling update for 2016, the redesigned MX-5 Miata should offer more of the same driving excitement.

The MX-5 Miata got slightly wider and lower for 2016, which gives it a more planted appearance. That, combined with a new grille, steeply raked windshield and sharp creases that slice through both sides of the hood turn the car's styling from cute to aggressive.

2016 Honda HR-V Video

Honda's newest tiny crossover may be based on the automaker's Fit subcompact hatchback, but Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays says it wears none of the smaller car's styling and instead looks almost Acura-like outside.

Inside, Mays wasn't impressed by the HR-V's touch-sensitive controls, but was surprised by the amount of room the subcompact SUV offers. Check out the video for more.

2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport Photo Gallery (29 Photos)

15838380192_bf752eb85d

Land Rover's newest SUV marks the debut of a new family of Discovery-branded vehicles, and the 2016 Discovery Sport should be a crowd-pleaser, borrowing some of its sleek and stylish good looks from its popular Evoque sibling. The Discovery Sport's clean-looking front end with two-bar grille and wraparound headlights, however, tie it to the larger Land Rover family. It's making its debut at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Inside, there's standard seating for five passengers, but Land Rover calls the setup a "5+2" configuration with an optional two-seat third row in the cargo area. All models come standard with leather — lower trim levels get partial leather seats and higher trims get the full Windsor leather treatment, including a stitched leather dashboard and door panels.

2016 Kia Sorento Grows Up For Families

15649661009_dc6566812f

Kia seems to be growing up in front of our eyes even faster than my tween daughters. I was happily surprised by my recent test-drive of the new 2015 Kia Sedona minivan, and that growth in maturity is clearly going to be a theme for Kia based upon the all-new 2016 Sorento shown at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Sure, its dimensions have stretched a bit to create a slightly roomier feel inside, but the real story is its upscale fit and finish and attention to usable features in this three-row crossover.

2016 Volvo XC90 Photo Gallery (33 Photos)

2016VolvoXC90

Save for the instantly identifiable diagonal crosspiece logo that is Volvo's trademark, the 2016 XC90 three-row crossover injects some new flare into the Swedish automaker's familiar design. Updated cues include a waterfall grille with vertical bars, T-shaped daytime running lights Volvo likens to Thor's hammer and slightly ridic 22-inch wheels.

Also departing from garden-variety Volvo style, the seven-seat cabin has a horizontal, stacked dashboard. Other interior features include a crystal shifter, a leather-covered dash and a Bowers & Wilkins premium stereo with an air-ventilated subwoofer.

2014 Los Angeles Auto Show What You Missed: Day Two

LexusLFC2Concept

Welp, another year, another Los Angeles Auto Show on the books. As we speak, our on-the-scene team in sun-soaked L.A. is blowdrying their board shorts in the hotel bathroom, shaking the sand out of their suitcases and chucking their sunscreen bottles at airport security as they run to catch a flight back to the cold comfort of Cars.com's Chicago headquarters.
