Nissangtr We want to interrupt our regularly scheduled Carnival to bring you an exclusive Los Angeles Auto Show carnival. We scoped and scanned the Los Angeles Convention Center to bring you the best of what was out there, from little commuter cars to large SUVs. More than a dozen concept and production vehicles made their global debuts while another 30 vehicles made their first appearances in North America. Sit back and relax for the ride!

Nyt_lamborghinirevention The New York Times was California dreamin' with a very deep special section about the show, saying "The Los Angeles Auto Show may be short on new models this year, but it is long on talk about alternative fuels, hybrid drivetrains, and sustainable mobility." Meanwhile, Tori Tellem delivers an unforgettable list of the auto show's pithiest phrases in her feature on the auto show's "potent quotables."

Yahoo Autos has got detailed information on at least 20 vehicles, as well as photo galleries on more than 40 vehicles ranging from the Hyundai Veloster to the Volkswagen Tiguan and Space up! Concept.

Ed_audicrosscabrioletquattro wins the prize for what appears to be the most prolific Los Angeles Auto Show coverage, with news, photos, blogs, and video on nearly 40 concepts and production cars from Audi to Volvo.

TheCarConnection's coverage leads with Paul Eisenstein's preview of the Ford Bullitt Mustang and runs across the the full gamut of vehicles from the Hyundai Genesis to the Volkswagen Space Up! Blue Concept.

The team from Consumer Reports presents a completely fair and impartial perspective on more than 30 auto show vehicles, incuding our personal favorites, the new Mini Cooper Clubman and the Volvo ReCharge.

Ab_honda_fcx_clarity_32_showAutoblog's coverage goes far beyond the ordinary, to include more than just cars and photos of cars: They've got a gallery of celebrity attendees ranging from Governator Schwarzenegger to Jason Statham and AutoBlogGreen shares its first drive of the Honda FCX Clarity, the world's first production fuel-cell-powered car.

Those Jalopnik dudes remain obsessed by the cult of cars with their wild and wacky perspective on all aspects of the auto show. Regardless of whether it's a seemingly well-balanced review of the Czech Faurecia design study, or a report on the scuffle between Toyota and the Rainforest Action Network, we can count on those guys from Jalopnik to help us see it from a different angle.

Motor Trend delivers its usual auto show coverage with an assortment of kamikaze-style photography and rehashed press releases of more than 20 vehicles, and at least a half-dozen video segments.
