2017 LA motor show preview

The Los Angeles motor show is the last motor show of the year and often offers something different; it is usually not in the same order of magnitude as Detroit, Geneva or Frankfurt, but every year it has the premieres of some of the most interesting and important cars of the future.

This year is no different. So to go with just a couple of weeks before the show opens its doors, take a look at what’s coming to LA later this month.

We had a ride in the next generation of the CLS, but we have yet to see how it looks. There are two new four-door coupe in the Mercedes line-up will be revealed, with a four-door AMG GT model later. Expect the CLS to keep things more on the tame side in comparison.
