2018 Toyota C-HR: Proving that small crossovers are a big draw.

2016 LA Auto Show LogoPerhaps because it’s the first major auto show of the season (and perhaps because it’s set, of course, in California – the tail that wags the fashion dog), the Los Angeles Auto Show often establishes trends later followed at the other major shows.

2017 NIssan Rogue

Nissan North America Chairman Jose Munoz introduces the refreshed 2017 Rogue on a 7th-floor open parking deck in Miami.

Miami moved its annual auto show from November to early September this year, making it the first show of the new-car selling season. In many cases, that gives visitors (and that includes the press during preview days) their first views of the 2017 models. Below are some of the highlights from Miami.

Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles is set to bring another lusty Italian machine to U.S. shores. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is a premium compact rear-wheel-drive 4-door sedan that is set to debut in top-line high-performance trim with some pretty impressive specs.

2015 Alfa Romeo 4C

One of the stumbling blocks to justifying a joyriding car is the cost of licensing and insuring something you’re only going to drive occasionally. But both of those expenses can be greatly reduced by buying a “classic.”

In the eyes of many insurance companies and state licensing agencies, a car becomes a classic once it hits 25 years of age. To mark that occasion, they often give those cars extraordinary discounts; in fact, it usually costs a fraction as much to license and insure a 25-year-old car as it does a 24-year-old one.

2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

For those who feel a sports car is at least partially defined by an open-air driving experience, Alfa-Romeo introduced the 4C Spider at the 2015 North American International Auto Show. Based on the 4C coupe that went on sale last year, the Spider features a removable roof panel over the cockpit, which makes it what’s called a “targa” in some circles.
