Thats good to here... i thought Paris Motor Show was the last major Motor Show for the year (now tha Tokyo is every second year) and how many world debuts can that motor show have.... That means we might c more cars/concepts revealed. There is Australian International Motor Show... but i highly doubt anythin will make a world debut there (unless its from Holden/Ford/Toyota/Mitsubishi Australia).<p>This year has been quite boring in terms of World Debuts (expect for the Big 3 in the US which showed some beauts). I hope Toyota/Lexus have some kind of world debuts (All new LC or Highlander or facelift Lexus RX) or a concept or 2.

toyota should probably unveil something close to the next highlander or something and lexus could have the is500 and the lfa production.

Keep in mind HyundaiUSA currently has an 8 car lineup (just 8), and with the soon-to-NA-debut (facelifted) Tiburon, it would give the company new or restyled in every vehicle - all this around a two year span.<p>I don't see this is lame at all, as Hyundai will unveil to the public a facelifted car (NA) and a concept (world) for the LAIAS. Additionally, LAIAS has not yet garnered the attention other shows have been reputable for. Granted, it has always been in the shadow of NAIAS but since separation and now with its own spotlight, I predict great things to come in the near future. You would also notice that not every automaker is participating and/or debuting new vehicles at LAIAS, whether production or concept.

08-13-2006, 06:50 AM
Close enough <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Azera and Accent both debuted at the same time in NA, I recall, at New York. I placed Accent behind Azera, well, more of a technicality than anything, taken into consideration the Accent 3door debuted in SEMA, and then in Chicago (more official) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> Santa Fe (Detroit) came before Entourage (Chicago) but Entrouage landed at dealers before Santy did.

You are right (and I should have gotten the dates down in my previous post) - Azera and Accent sedans both made their NA debut in New York (2005). Accent 3door at SEMA later that year and then in 06 Chicago.<p>EDIT: Looked up and found the following:<p>Tucson 2004 Chicago<br>Sonata 2005 Detroit<br>Azera 2005 New York<br>Accent (sedan) 2005 New York<br>Accent 3dr 2005 SEMA / 2006 Chicago<br>Santa Fe 2006 Detroit<br>Entourage 2006 Chicago<br>Elantra 2006 New York<BR><BR>

astons is probably the vantage cabrio and a production rapide for detroit.

Nissan is probably the Altima Hybrid. Honda is debuting a close-to-production fuel cell vehicle based on the FCX concept shown in Tokyo.

What's with the 'World Debut' thing then?

knicks125
08-28-2006, 04:03 PM
Not sure...a world debut (concept) is as far as being touted - i'm thinking a new addition from its NA design center. Plus Accent hatback, Tiburon facelift, and possibly others will round out. We'll find out soon enough.<p>The Veracruz will be in Detroit, and more fitting.<p>I thought the Altima hybrid was going to debut alongside with the regular Altima in NY, I guess not.

Not exactly for me. I've seen better. I cant wait for Detroit though. I was hoping for maybe a Tucson facelift because alongside the new compact cute-utes, this looks just bland. Its the only Hyundai that I actually have criticisms for (I'm a Hyundai Fan so...). I like Miyka'el's little Tucson creation.

i wouldnt say the mx5 hardtop, its already on sale i believe. and technically the r8 already had its NA debut (in Ny), but it should still be there, but there still is no reason why the tt wouldnt be there. and isnt the 3dr accent on sale too? i swear ive seen one.<p>yeah and with the tsx i was going along to gobias's sig, which i believe is true. i believe it will be a redesign or restyle. it was introduced as an 02 model i think.

The next Acura TSX possibly debuting in LA? I suppose it's up for that due to a new generation Accord on the Horizon. I wonder if it'll be larger and offer V6 power as well as it's high-output 4. Then again, it may overlap with the TL. The TL is based on the same platform (Accord/TSX-itself the European Accord), I believe. <br>We don't have too long to wait from now (11/25/06)

I don't think we'll see the new Acura TSX until after the new 2008 Accord debuts in September 2007, since it will likely be based on the new European/JDM model.<p>One rumor I've heard occasionally is that Toyota will unveil the 2008 Scion xB (second generation model) and xD (xA successor) at the Los Angeles Auto Show. We'll find out in about 4-5 days! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">

I have a feeling it will be an Acura-ized Honda Sports4 Concept that debuted Tokyo this year since the Acura TSX is basically a tarted up JDM Honda Accord.<p>Also, according to Wikipedia, the updated Aveo hatchback should debut there.

My memory may have lapsed but I don't recall Toyota/Scion being on the list of vehicle debuts - will have to check.<p>As for the Aveo hatchback, I trust since the GM official press release didn't list as one of the premieres, it would not be unveiled at LA.

There have always been debuts and concepts at L.A., but not nearly as many high profile intros as you'd see at Detroit. That won't change completely--so long as there's automakers in Detroit, it will probably remain North America's premier auto show--but because the L.A. Auto show has (a) moved to the beginning of the season and (b) won true "International" auto show status, it stands to reason that this will be a huge show, and I'm expecting some awesome stuff.

I know it hardly matters, but I was looking at the floorplan of the LA auto show this year and it is REALLY different from the normal exhibitor placement of before.
