The 2023 L.A. Auto Show, although not as extravagant as previous years, still showcased a range of new vehicles. While electric vehicles didn’t dominate the show floor, they still made a significant impact alongside internal combustion vehicles. Here are the top picks from the show, as voted by Autoblog staff.
5. 2025 Toyota Crown Signia
The 2025 Toyota Crown Signia is a practical addition to Toyota’s flagship lineup. With all-wheel drive, a larger cargo area, and a liftgate, it offers a more versatile option compared to the Crown sedan. While it made it onto the Editors’ Picks list, the absence of a Hybrid Max powertrain prevented it from ranking higher.
4. 2024 Kia Sorento
The Kia Sorento stood out with its captivating new design. Featuring a larger grille and upright styling cues, it exudes a more SUV-like appearance. Inside, the updated model offers a new infotainment system, improved layout, and a premium feel. These enhancements make the Sorento even more competitive in its segment.
3. 2025 Toyota Camry
Although the new Toyota Camry may not be groundbreaking, it underwent a substantial mid-cycle refresh. Now exclusively available in a hybrid version, it offers improved fuel efficiency and a more appealing front end. Considering the limited offerings at this year’s show, the Camry stood out as a solid choice.
2. 2025 Subaru Forester
The updated Subaru Forester displayed at the L.A. Auto Show showcased a significant improvement for the compact crossover. However, it was the announcement of the upcoming Forester Hybrid that caught attention. This hybrid variant is expected to enhance the already practical SUV with better fuel economy, making it an attractive option for environmentally-conscious Subaru buyers.
Despite the subdued atmosphere at the 2023 L.A. Auto Show, these vehicles managed to make an impact with their notable features and updates.
