Reviews on Los Angeles Auto Show

Auto shows are basically hype.  And this one is hype you can believe in.

I know this because the LA auto show generally occurs at the same time as the SF one, meaning that it draws all the good debuts and show-worthy cars while we NorCal folks get stuck with the boring stuff.  If you like premieres and actually getting to sit in cars, come here!

* 2015 Cars Are Here *

The Los Angeles Auto Show has been around since 1907 when it began with only 99 cars on display. My husband and I have been coming here since the beginning. Well, not quite, but it seems like we've been attending forever.

Here, my husband is like a kid in a candy shop planning for the next vehicle purchase. I must have been a little excited too, because I had to narrow down the 77 pictures I took into a reasonable amount to post on Yelp. Although, I noticed most of my pictures are for my next car - an Audi convertible.

I've seen the Auto Show change. Years ago, there was more of an emphasis on what the future would bring. We saw concept cars that were exciting and we looked forward to seeing the new cars on display.

Somehow, it changed. It is now very crowded and hard to see the cars. You have to wait for a few minutes for the person before you to get out of the car so you can sit in it for a couple of minutes while the next person is impatiently waiting for their turn. This, multiplied by the many cars you want to look at, takes a lot of time to look at just a few cars. Many times, it is the adorable child at the wheel while their parents gladly hold up the line while taking pictures of their children pretending to drive. I'm sure I've done the same.

Held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, the prices are $12 for general admission tickets, Monday through Thursday. Prices go up Friday through Sunday to $15. Children 6-12 are $5. Parking at the Convention Center is $20. We ended up going on a Sunday and paid full price.

So, why don't we just go to the car dealers instead and save ourselves all that money? Obviously, I am not the car enthusiast my husband is and he does not agree with me. He and my family like the excitement the show brings.

Although I missed the concept cars (saw only one), what did I like most about the show? Seeing the old cars on display. A bit ironic, right?

My first time to an auto show. Great venue!! But, they should keep all of the cars unlocked. What's the point to lock the car if you are exhibiting at an auto show? I don't understand. I was so excited to see the X5 at BMW booth but it was locked. I was soo disappointed because it's my dream car..........

Got to play the race game at Lexus booth. I totally sucked but fun experience.

Not really into cars but I came here with a friend and my boyfriend few weeks back... and it was pretty cool!

They had a bunch of different sections within the convention center that was filled with different types of cars.  There were luxurious cars, sports cars, and cars by their maker like Honda, Mercedes, Toyota, Kia, Lexus and so on.

Right by the exit of the convention center was where my favorite car was.  A Tiffany Teal Lexus RCF. Soooo nice and girly. I would not mind driving that around! hehe.

They also had a bunch of different vendors... one area had loud clubbing music, models around the cars and Monster was giving out free energy drinks to people.

It was $15 per person during the weekend.. and I think $13 during the week?  They had discount coupons available at most dealerships but they had already expired by the time we wanted to go.

Parking was pretty expensive around the convention center.. so we parked a few streets away for $10 and walked to the convention center.

This year. I was disappointed.

I loved the Infiniti Q80 concept. That was sexy.

They totally could have done a better job.

Maybe its because I'm a serious car enthusiast who has driven most of the cars they have featured. Exotics aren't exotic to me anymore ]:

Can't wait to go next year!!

Craig Y. | 2014-11-30

The LA Auto Show is a holiday tradition for me and my buddy. We've been coming every year since the 90's There is a lot to see, you got two big main halls that have all brands of cars. Then you have two smaller rooms one that is dedicated to Porsche and the other is for some high class cars. Lastly is the Aftermarket Hall room that has all your aftermarket stuff and other vendors selling stuff that is my favorite hall lots of cool cars and some outrageous looking cars. Just be prepared for lots of walking.

Porsche C. | 2014-11-29

The LA Auto Show is fun for the entire family.  The kids can race remote control cars/trucks.  I made a video with the Kia hamsters.  Chevy also had a video center. There was a small track outside to test drive cars.

The cars were amazing.  Of course the exotics garner so much attention.  However, I really loved the Escalade.

Mr L. | 2014-11-29

Second time coming to the show. The Lexus RC Coupe and NX300H were the main attractions for me. Honda also had their HRV on display. If you get there early, you can take some of the popular cars on a test drive. If you are in the market to buy a new car, you can see everything available in one place with no pressure to buy. Recommended. $12 admission. You can usually find parking on the street not too far from the show too.

Mimi L. | 2014-11-28

Had so much fun at this auto show! I am glad hubby talked me into going, I am not intrested in cars in general, and I know nothing about cars. I have never seen so many different cars at one place in my entire life, everything was so interesting!

There are a few halls to exhibit all kinds of cars, all brand names, exotic cars, vintage cars, and some racing cars too. Hubby spent a lot of time to check out the cars he would like to buy as our next car, mostly Infinity, Lexux and BMW, personally I love Infinity, hate BMW....

It was very crowded when we got there early afternoon, then people started to leave near the late afternoon, I liked it better, much more easier to check out the cars. And they intentionally put beautiful women to represent their cars, loved their professional yet still sexy looks, beautiful blondes who can also walk and talk, very impressive, not to mention how they managed to stand in high heels for hours, ouch!

There is a full bar and restaurant next to the food court, we had a few drinks at the bar now and then while taking breaks, the drinks were strong and tasty. A few food and drink stands, as well as condiments areas, they opened up more condiments areas late afternoon near dinner time. Also lots of restrooms everywhere, everything was so convenient and easy!

I would like to come back each year from now on, it's a really fun auto show to attend to!

Ps. Parking was very expensive, general was $20, valet was $40.

I had not been back to the auto show for quite a few years, but what drove me to visit it this time was the new jeep renegade. My situation I jokingly say that I come and visit to see a brand new used car I will own after 3-5 years when it's been depreciated down to a cash price I can stomach. Also, since this is the first jeep with FIAT having a large hand in its design I'll sit on the sideline to read the actual user reviews. This being a holdover from the 'fix it again toni' days that a college roommate who owned a fiat told me.

Other then that it's neat to see the concept cars out there for entertainment purposes. Also, like most I gravitate to seeing the more expensive brands and recognizing what the backend looks like that way when I'm behind one of those I'm extra cautious to avoid a rearend collision sending me to bankruptcy court.

Oh by the way don't bitch about the cost of parking becuz the metro pico station is only a short walk away from the convention center. Also, times haven't changed much I still haven't been able to sit in that Maserati or the Bentley they have displayed.

Anthony M. | 2014-11-25

you should come here if you are a car expert like me and want to see an experince a shit load of cars then you should come here.

Dan M. | 2014-11-25

I usually go every year. This year it seemed like they had a lot more cars. Noticed the crowd a lot smaller for an opening day. Maybe it has to do with these guys constantly jacking up their admission and parking prices. Over all it was pretty good. The only setback I encountered was at the Al & Eds in Kentia hall, when I asked one of the sluts for a calendar and she gave me a hard time about it. The slut acted like she owned the company or something. This company is scraping the bottom of the barrel for business it seems, hiring these sluts. it makes them look desperate.

Jeremy S. | 2014-11-23

The LA auto show is top notch. Great venue, great cars and excellent amenities. I have been to several auto shows and I do think that this one is probably the best in the world. LA, you're awesome and really understand how to utilize your convention center! Make sure you give yourself ample time to see all that this auto show has to offer.

Evelyn T. | 2014-11-22

Did they spend more money on the show or what? What an event! Tons of cars and displays and brochures and people. $15 to get in for adults (no student discounts), $20 for Convention Center parking. People from all over the world go to the show.

I took a lot of pictures and had fun. Some of my pictures are under the LA Convention Center listing. I went almost everyone. Bypassed the after market parts area and the Porsche area, but saw most everything else. Subaru was impressive. The Impreza looks like a high quality and attractive vehicle. I received a blue shopper bag from them. Buick was giving out coffee beans. Toyota had red shopper bags. Didn't pick up many brochures. I just took pictures of what interested me.

Ford was giving out blue shopper bags and if you took a survey, you got a snazzy free pen with flashlight. While sitting at their charging station (for phones), I took the survey. It took a longer time than I expected and I pretty much answered most of the questions as "No," "I don't know," "I'm not sure," and I refused to give out my age. The survey taker was fine with it. Ford also gave out cards and signed people up to do a test drive for one of their cars and then receive a $50 Mastercard Gift Card. I'm pretty sure they well really try to sell the car to you if you participate...

Somehow I missed out on the goodies I was used to receiving. Didn't get a Scion keychain as in years previous. Perhaps I was too busy taking photos. What was funny were the photobombers. You can see them in my photos. Nissan had a lot of intriguing looking cars. The Altima 2.5 looks worthy of consideration. Didn't test drive any cars but I noticed Lexus and Scion had test drives along the walkway to the Convention Center. If you don't want to wait, I would suggest going early.

Enjoyed the show. Food and beverages were much better this year than last. LACC must have listened to peoples' complaints from last year. Had a ham wrap with lettuce, tomato and cheese, a banana, an iced tea, and I shared kettle potato chips. Of course it cost a lot, it's a Convention Center in Los Angeles. Great event, I can't wait for next year's show.

Note: I didn't get any pics of the Alfa Romeo exhibit but it is spectacular. The spokesmodel was even wearing Christian Louboutin shoes. Attractive but they look like they are painful. Does anyone know about these?

Tena'e W. | 2014-11-22

It was my first time but it won't be my last!  I had a great time and didn't remember how big the Convention Center was. So much to be seeing,  so many great design displays beautiful impressive exhibits. Hot vehicle, incredible innovative interiors.  Talking cars, beautiful vibrant & also pastel colors. Custom style and great prices informative host. Open my mind to  cars,  I would have never never thought about. If my schedule permits me I'll be back cuz I did not see everything. Great experience

Jana C. | 2014-11-19

Attended a few years back. Very large large showing with press releases from companies all day long. The future concept cars are beyond description!!

Fun to experience, even for a lukewarm car aficionado such as me!

Steve T. | 2014-07-31

This review is of the 2013 Auto Show.

After paying $20. to park and another $12. to get in crowds abound and amature photographers crawling over each other like ants in a colony, you can see everything from your every day new releases to exotics and concepts. This year was no different.

Put on your walking shoes and dress comfortably, bring about $30.00 to grab a quick bite and let the viewing begin.

This years crown jewel was the actual concept AMG Mercedes that is seen in the new PS3 Grand Turismo 6 game called the Vision Grand Turismo. Laden with chrome and featuring no back windows it is a concept that will no doubt never make it to production. Packed with gamers and gawkers alike this car was hard to get to and video, however waiting until closing time had it's perks.


In 2011, the show featured the i8 BMW from the movie Mission Impossible:Ghost Protocol. This concept was sharp and the color scheme was the same blue and black seen in the movie. This year, the same car reappeared but in a much more scaled down fashion, ready for production at $135,000 and a little disappointing.

Honda displayed the new 2014 models of their usual Civics, Accords, CRZs, but they also had a concept electric car called the Honda FCEV. Sleek and sharp I know of one non honda enthusiast who said that if this electric gem makes it into production, there is no amount of plasma in the world that will keep them away!

One upset was the Acura NSX concept that was said to be appearing at the LA Auto Show, but was a no show. It apparently made it in for the press days and then headed to Tokyo for their Auto show.

Volkswagen had a concept SUV called the "Cross Blue Coupe". A new Hybrid for the company no one there could seem to give any information about. However after reading about the demise of the VW Touran in 2014, it is plausable to think that this may just make it to production anyway.

Porsche had it's own show area in Petree Hall sectioned off from every other car manufacturer with guards and plenty of snobby representatives. It also had an area that housed a club specifically for Porsche owners and beyond that a glass room worthy of a white gloved inspection that held a Porsche 918 Spyder shown by appointment only and not accessable to the general crowd except via a few large windows that didn't allow much room to work around for photographers and videographers who tried to get a 360 degree view of the car.

The Galpin Ford GTR1 was featured in a room downstairs with about 12 other exotics. Its actual debut was in August in Monterey, but seeing it in LA was unexpected. At $1,024,000 and 1000 HP and a top speed of 225, I don't think it will be sitting in my driveway any time soon.


Cadalliac showed off it's concept the Elmiraj. Not a Cadillac fan, this car would definitely change my mind. This car is ready for production  and although a production model was available for viewing, I focused on the concepts and didn't make it back to see the production model.

The 2014 GT-R Nissan Nismo version touts a few cosmetic changes and a little power upgrade. Definitely a conversation piece, but nothing to put on the Christmas card. At just over $100,000, wondering what is in it for that amount still stumps some, but others would gladly pay that or more.

Debuting 23 concepts and providing access to many more with 760,000 sq ft of space holding cars from manufacturers. Two full floors and corridors on the left and right. Open to the public for 10 days, usually around Thanksgiving every year. The price to get in hasn't changed in the last few years, however the parking has gone up by $12. since 2011.

Parking is cash only and so are tickets at the venue. You can buy tickets online and pick them up at Will Call for no additional charge.

They have a bar and a type of cafe/restaurant, but severely overpriced, you can leave the show, decompress & take a time out from the crowd, have your hand stamped and return. Hours vary by day and lessen as the show progresses. So check online each day for hours at the official LA Auto Show website. Be prepared for crowds the first 5 days or so and then it slows down. They will start telling you it is time to leave about 30 minutes before close and a large amount of security forces show up as each passing minute goes by making sure that the floor is cleared within 5 minutes of closing. They are almost intimidating.

All in all it is worth it to me as a car connoisseur to visit the show whenever I can as it is one of the larger I have been to. I would definitely like to visit the New York and Detroit shows as well. This isn't the best show I have been to, but it was worth the trip.

Linda W. | 2014-01-03

Me and my friends went on the last day of the show and it wasn't busy (we came early - opening at 9am) and got to walk around in the quietness.  Parking was easy and free (because it was a Sunday) along Hope St.  It is 2 blocks away from the Convention Center.

This is my 2nd time going to the auto show.  I think the first one I went to was probably in Anaheim, but I could be wrong.  The way the place was decked out this year was very nice.  I got to check out the Mercedes I was planning to buy (CLA250) as the dealership never has them in stock.  It was so tiny, so I am not going to buy it anymore, but I did fell in love with the GLA250 (crossover look).  That should be out next Fall I think for around $30k-ish.

The super expensive fancy cars were locked and you cannot get into them.  Everything else was pretty open. Not too many giveaways, but I did got a cool pen looking thing that has a screw driver on each end. Exactly what I was looking for!

Not that I want junk, but they should give out more things like keychains.

** Review for the 2013 LA Auto Show **

I enjoyed coming to the LA Auto Show this year. Lots to see, cars to test-drive, and free gear/souvenirs all around!

As someone who isn't really into cars, I still had fun. My friends were huge car buffs, so they were really into it.

Floyd C. | 2013-12-22

What a fun place for a car fan.  Plenty of cars to check out from all the auto makers.  Yes these are all newer cars, but I enjoyed seeing whats new and exciting these days.  

The Lexus display was actually very exciting with a color changing floor and great concept on display.  I was also impressed with Lincoln's moving ornaments hanging above the cars.  

At the show you can also test drive cars, sit in most of the models, and check out specs from several car manufacturers.  

If you have never sat in a Mercedes or Porsche this is your chance to see what the fuss is all about.  I enjoyed the show and so did my guests.  Just be prepared to pay as parking can cost as much as admission here.

Andrea M. | 2013-12-05

Lot's to see and it's spread out. Go early or late to avoid crowds. Lot's of food options too.

Eric F. | 2013-12-04

Really glad I got to make it to this year's show while I'm living in the area.  All the major carmakers were in attendance and the admission of $8.50-$12.50 per person depending on whether you do a single or group purchase was a great deal considering how much you can check out.  Additionally, the test drives available from Mazda, Hyundai, Volkswagen, etc. made the experience that much more worthwhile.  Certainly the highlight was having the opportunity to test out BMW's pre-production i3.

Restrooms are strewn throughout the convention center and a number of very tasty looking food trucks were around too including Me So Hungry, a Korean fusion one and a BBQ joint.

Jacqueline R. | 2013-11-28

This isn't the main page for the LA Auto Show (see how the title of this is La, which Angeles not even capitalized?!). Go HERE for the real page: yelp.com/biz/los-angeles…

Trang L. | 2013-11-27

First auto show. The parking price here is ridiculous, as it always is when you're parking in the parking structure for the L.A. Convention Center. Admission price varies on what day you're attending. $10 during the weekdays for people 13+. The car selection was pretty varied, and there was a lot to see. You can enter specific cars. You can't get as near to certain sports cars or concept cars, but it is still very nice to see them with your own eyes.

Steve M. | 2013-11-26

I go every year. If you live in LA, don't be a fool and drive to this. Parking is very expensive and rather dangerous.  I live in the valley and park near subway lines and take them to the convention center. I my case I take the Orange line bus to North Hollywood and then subway to Blue and to the center.
Show always has the lights and cars. They showcase all with smart specialist standing everywhere for your questions. This year I was really disappointed with the Accessories section. Why too much concern on super loud music. So with that said, the people roaming around were the types you would not find in the fine car sections.
Walking is mandatory and food is crazy high priced! BBQ sandwich and very burnt disgusting fries can be had for a whopping price $10!! A ice cream cone $4 ( not a type-O) . Next time I'm bringing  my backpack with food.
NO SEATS to rest on! They really need more seats! I did feel safe as there were plenty of non- aggressive mainly out of site security.
Overall..not a bad set-up to show new cars.

Ward K. | 2013-11-25

The LA Auto Show is at the Los Angeles Convention Center.  For those of you like myself who have never been to this event, I have to recommend wearing comfortable footwear as you can, and probably will do a lot of walking.  Right off the bat, depending on where you park, will gauge how much walking you will do to and from the Convention Center.

Parking ranged from $30 for the lots close all the way down to $15 for the ones farther away.

The cost to attend varies depending when you go and of course age.  There is discounts for seniors and you may purchase tickets online.  You can go here to see prices, dates and times: axs.com/laautoshow  

Just like when you visit your local dealership to test drive your maybe future vehicle, certain manufactures are giving you the same experience.  Check out this site for the details: laautoshow.com/manufactu…  

Every car manufacture that I could think of is here showing off all their cars.  Even cars that are too new that they don't even know the prices yet.  The best thing about this show is seeing concept cars.  Yes full blown, full size concept cars.  I will not go into details but it is a site to see.  Best part is that most are some sort of Hybrid.

Speaking about concept cars....  some of the young and bright minds that go into this field are there from some school showing off how they can draw a custom car just for you.  Pretty awesome.

There is an area for those who are into the zombie apocalypse that would give them ideas how to fix up their cars.  Yes it is a sight to see.

Custom Cars from Al & Eds, GAS, DUB as well as others are on hand showing off their skills.

They even had an alley way full of lunch trucks and even ice cream which seemed to be a hit for the little and big kids at heart.  Speaking of little and big kids at heart... a famous game manufacture is there allowing people to play some cool games.  Yes woman, drop them off over there while you check out your new car(s).  

This car show has everything, a couple of huge trucks selling tons of old collector Hot Wheels as well as other brands.  Car polish to keep your ride looking nice to special polish to keep your rims and all metals shinny and new.

I was so fortunate to be here and had time to check it out.  Just make sure you  grab one of those books as it tells you where everything is to help you navigate around.  Or you can just do what I did and just wandered around.

Rubie S. | 2013-11-21

It's always so amazing! I can't wait to go this year.

Cassandra Y. | 2013-06-16

Over crowed show. Especially on high-end sport cars. Less selection compared to previous years.

The Parking: Parking structure (FEE)

Jake S. | 2013-01-14

The 2012 auto show was a complete bust. I remember going to this event when I was younger and the plethora of cars you could look and see was amazing. I went to this years event as I have not been to one in over 5 years and I was truly disappointed with the ticket prices, parking prices, food prices, and the few rooms of cars compared to other years.  Sad to say but this will probably be the last time I go to this event again.

David M. | 2012-12-08

Excellent layout, easy to get to from the Metro Expo line. The high-end sports cars and concepts were fantastic, yet I'm hoping the automakers make better cars in the future...Honda specifically has almost the same lineup they've had for the last 15 years...boooring! Props to VW for the Beetle redesign and Toyota/Scion had an impressive display.

Shuo L. | 2012-12-03

just not that cheap to park a car!
