Today’s haul was again dominated by SUVs, of the luxury, performance and luxury-performance varieties — it is L.A., after all — including the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover SVAutobiography, 2019 Porsche Cayenne and BMW Concept X7.

Another concept-car bow came courtesy of the BMW i Vision Dynamics all-electric, high-performance sports car. But not all electric cars need to be of the prognosticative pie-in-the-sky variety: The L.A. show also witnessed the debut of the 2018 Nissan Leaf for the environmentally conscious common folk. The 2019 Kia Sorento rounded out today’s lineup.

And that’s a wrap on this one, car shoppers and enthusiasts. Check back in with us Friday and beyond for further coverage of the L.A. show, and we’ll see you next in Detroit for the 2018 North American International Auto Show.
