Vehicles on display at the Los Angeles Auto Show include new Subaru, Lucid, and Toyota models

An all-new Subaru Forester, a Lucid electric SUV, and a redesigned Toyota Camry are among the new vehicles on show at the Los Angeles Auto Show, which begins this week. The public portion of the exhibition runs from November 17 to 26, and, like many other car shows across the world, there will be substantially fewer debuts than in previous years. This is because many manufacturers are foregoing the expense of large trade exhibitions to differentiate themselves from the competition through online model unveiling. The Forester and Lucid Gravity SUV will make their global premieres. Toyota will display the Camry and Crown Signia SUVs, which were unveiled in Los Angeles before the opening of the exhibition.

Subaru’s tiny SUV receives a new exterior design for 2025 that is more upright and SUV-like than the present model. According to the manufacturer, the new Forester’s design emphasises height and strength while also including aerodynamic advancements. The current 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and continuously variable gearbox from the outgoing model are retained. Subaru claims that stronger welding techniques were employed on the frame to boost rigidity and decrease weight. As a result, the SUV handles better while also providing a smoother, quieter ride. Subaru’s EyeSight driver aid technology, which includes automated emergency braking and pedestrian and cyclist detection, is standard on all models. The Forester will go on sale in the United States next spring. Prices were not disclosed.

If you want to buy Toyota’s Camry midsize sedan in its ninth generation, you will only be able to do it with a gas-electric hybrid drivetrain. Toyota says it will link its 2.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with the company’s hybrid system to produce 225 horsepower with front-wheel drive and 232 horsepower with all-wheel drive. The new Camry, which is still America’s best-selling vehicle, will have a sharper look on the outside and a slimmer roofline, according to Toyota. Softer materials have been used to enhance the interior materials. Although the chassis is the same as the 2024 model, Toyota claims that the suspension has been returned for more nimble handling on bumpy roads. Prices and gas mileage were not disclosed.

Lucid, an electric vehicle startup, is seeking to boost sales with the Gravity, a premium SUV in the heart of the US auto industry. The new SUV, which can accommodate seven adults and their belongings, is expected to have a driving range of more than 440 miles (700 km). It is Lucid’s second vehicle, following the Air sedan. The Gravity, according to the firm, was built to glide through the air with better aerodynamics than comparable three-row bigger SUVs. The second and third-row seats fold flat, allowing for more than 112 cubic feet (3.2 cubic metres) of cargo space.
