CARS.COM — As one might say from a Hollywood director’s chair: Cut! Print! Check the gate! That’s a wrap for our on-the-scene coverage of the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show media days — and what a blockbuster of a media show it was. In addition to the 16 cars we spotlighted on Wednesday, we added 13 more to the till by the end of the second day.

More 2016 L.A. Auto Show Coverage

We almost broke out our flannel and Dr. Martens because the future of the auto industry today looked an awful lot like the 1990s as more than half the major debuts were SUVs. To be fair, one of those — the Mitsubishi eX Concept — was electric-powered, but it seems like the low-gas-price trend has reignited our national love affair with these family haulers. We saw the latest version of the Audi Q5 and Jeep Compass, along with the all-new Land Rover Discovery, Toyota C-HR and Land Rover Discovery, and Subaru Viziv-7 Concept.

Rounding out the day were bows by high-dollar luxury sports models including the 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster and the 2017 Porsche Panamera, Panamera Executive and Panamera 4 E Hybrid, along with luxury sedan the 2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country.

That’s it for us in L.A., but check back in the coming days as our show coverage continues with additional news, photo galleries and videos. The show is open to the public Friday through Nov. 27. In the meantime, here’s what you might’ve missed on Day Two:
