At the Kia stand, they had this new Optima on display. It is very sharp...Kia and Hyundai are now a force to be reckoned with in the small car arena.
One thing to note: what really makes this car stand out is the black roof, as is often used on show cars. Make that roof body colored and suddenly it loses some of it's excitement.
Meanwhile, over at the Hyundai booth, Ron tries the new Equus on for size. It's Hyundai's first attempt to take on the big luxury marks such as Mercedes. It will be interesting to see how many people will pay $60K and up for a Hyundai.
By the way, how many of you knew that Hyundai and Kia are owned by the same company?
The display in the Hyundai both kept changing patterns and caught my attention. Yeah, I'm a visual person.
Not sure why I decided to post'em all, but I did...
Another cool one...
And photos of Infinity's show car. Very sharp, and it had no side view mirror. Instead, it had a tiny camera mounted in the A-pillar on the driver's side.
Sorry I didn't take more photos of it, this was the last booth we visited and we were tired. And I didn't take any pics of the production Infinitys because they were all white, which doesn't photograph well. Seems to be a miscalculation on Infinity's part.
And that, my friends, was what I saw as the highlights to the 2010 LA Auto Show.
