2015 BMW 2 Series Convertible Photo Gallery (20 Photos)

2015BMW2SeriesConvertible

It's easy to describe the 2015 BMW 2 Series Convertible bowing this week at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show if you've seen the 2014 2 Series coupe on which it’s based: Just imagine that, sans top. When the top is up, though, shiny fibers give it a shimmering metallic effect, accenting its black, Anthracite or brown color exterior, depending on which you've selected. The M Sport adds an aerodynamic body kit, lightweight M Sport wheels, large front air intakes, unique side skirts and grilles, a rear diffuser and high-gloss chrome exhaust tips.

Infiniti Q80 Inspiration Concept Photo Gallery (21 Photos)

We first saw photos of Infiniti's newest concept at the Paris Motor Show, but they don't do it justice. In person at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, the Q80 Inspiration Concept is stunning.

The "four-door coupe" concept previews a future Infiniti flagship sedan, but there's nothing production about the Q80 Inspiration. Its cab-rearward styling, wavelike grille insert, fanned-out headlights, bulging rear end, V-shaped roofline and rear-hinged doors look straight out of a sci-fi movie.

What You Can't Miss at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show

15202832924_f4632620a8_b

Although technically at the end of the 2014 calendar year, the Los Angeles Auto Show marks the unofficial opening of the 2015 auto show season, and like last year, the automakers spared no drama with their reveals.

This year's show is open to the public from Nov. 21-30 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, 1201 S. Figueroa St. in downtown Los Angeles, and there's almost too much to see — your senses will be on overload.

There are plenty of distractions going on at the show, but several out-there concept cars, over-the-top exhibits and just plain weird displays can't be missed. Check out the Cars.com editorial team's list of L.A. must-sees:

Dial M for motorsports.

2016 Fiat 500X Photo Gallery (29 Photos)

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)

15217489893_d3af42806f

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 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.
