2023 LA Auto Show A-Z Debuts From The Toyota Camry And Subaru Forester To The Lucid

Stellantis might have pulled out but there’s still plenty of action in and around America’s final major show of 2023

November 16, 2023 at 21:25

Last month’s Japan Mobility Show in Tokyo raised the bar so high with its collection of rocking concepts and production cars that there’s simply no way this week’s LA Auto Show can match it. On top of that, the UAW strikes have forced Stellantis to pull out, meaning we won’t get an in-person look around the new trucks. But there’s still plenty of hot metal heading to LA that’s worth getting excited about. Here’s a rundown of what to expect.

2025 Genesis GV80 and GV80 Coupe

The facelifted Genesis GV80 SUV makes its North American debut at the LA show following a Korean reveal in September, but it’s going to be completely upstaged by its new GV80 Coupe sister. Both versions get a trick 27-inch OLED dashboard display and a choice of 300 hp (304 PS) 2.5-liter, four-pot turbo, or 375 hp (380 PS) 3.5-liter V6 turbo powertrains.

Honda Prelude Concept

After its world premiere in Japan last month, Honda brought the Prelude Concept to LA for its first appearance in North America. While specific details are still under wraps, what we do know is that it’s slated for production within the next few years and will exclusively feature a hybrid powertrain

2025 Hyundai Ioniq 5 N and Santa Fe

Imagine telling someone in 2003 that Hyundai would one day build an SUV as cool as a Range Rover and and electric car that was faster and more fun to drive than most Porsches. They’d think you were nuts, unless you were able to teleport them to this week’s LA Show up where they’d get a close look at the 2024 Santa Fe and 2025 Ioniq 5 N. The new, larger Santa Fe makes up to 277 hp (280 PS) from its turbocharged inline four, but the dual-motor 5 N EV is good for 641 hp (650 PS) in boost mode.

2025 Kia Sorento and the EV3 and EV4 Concepts

Kia has only just launched the ever-so slightly upgraded 2024 Sorento, but if you’re about to pull the trigger on one, you might want to hold off. The refreshed 2025 version gets its U.S. debut at the Staples Center and features a completely new face with vertically-stacked LED headlights and far more modern interior complete with curved dashboard display and dual 12.3-inch screens. Joining the SUV are the EV3 compact SUV and EV4 sedan concepts that both preview future additions to Kia’s growing electric car lineup.

2025 Lucid Gravity

Lucid’s stand is going to be a must-see for anyone at the LA show. The startup has taken the covers off its Gravity, an electric, seven-seater model that promises to deliver everything good about the critically-acclaimed Air sedan but in a far more on-trend SUV package. According to the automaker, it delivers up to 440 miles (708 km) of range and a 0-60mph (96 km/h) in less than 3.5 seconds with a starting price of under $80,000.

2025 Subaru Forester

The new Forester has already stirred up a ton of controversy after images leaked all over the internet last week, but we’ll have a clearer idea of whether the hate the new styling received is worth it when the SUV is officially unveiled on Thursday. Thought to be a re-skin of the current five-year old car, rather than all-new, the 2025 Forester adopts a chunkier shape with a tougher face and squared arches that look rather like those on the Toyota RAV4 that shifted 350 per cent more units last year. Funny, that, eh?

2025 Toyota Camry and Crown Signia SUV

The strange Crown crossover sedan hasn’t exactly gone down a storm in America, but its new Crown Signia sibling has a much bigger chance of striking gold because it’s far less ugly and, more importantly, it’s an SUV. Well, that’s what it’ll be called in the U.S., though the same car is marketed in Japan as the Crown Estate.

That’s not all Toyota is showing off this week. Now we all know a new 2025 Camry is never going to set pulses racing, unless you’re a Toyota dealer, but the Camry’s selling power – it’s the fifth most popular new vehicle in America and Toyota’s second best seller behind the RAV4 – means we can’t ignore it either and it’ll be interesting to see how Toyota moves the 2025 Camry on to remain relevant in an SUV-dominated car market.

Aitekx RoboTruck

A California EV startup called Aitekx has created a very Tesla Cybertruck-like model called the Robotruck. While details are shadier than a palm tree on a sunny day, Aitekx says it will introduce both SUV and pickup truck versions of the Robotruck, with price points spanning from $45,000 to nearly $100,000.
