Default Los Angeles Auto show - 2011

I could finally manage to take out some time on a Sunday after-noon and visit the LA Auto Show, that was held from November 18th to November 25th 2011 at the LA Convention Center. It was definitely worth a visit, and I came back impressed with the wide variety of cars on display at the auto show, and clicked quite a few pictures that I would like to share.

There were quite a lot of manufacturers out there, and I will try and share pictures of cars that have been newly introduced, or have had a facelift for 2012. Let's start:


Fresh for 2012, were the Veloster that boasts of 40 MPG Highway gas mileage:
