The Los Angeles Auto Show, formally known as Automobility LA, is becoming a bigger deal each year, possibly even stealing some thunder from its counterpart up north in frosty Detroit, and this year saw a diverse mix of international product debuts taking place.

While 'electrification' and 'mobility' were the big buzzwords just as they are at any modern motor show, there were still some sports car thrills of the traditional kind, with Porsche revealing its new-generation but now highly digitised 911.

Towing an even more traditional line was the Jeep Gladiator, which is the American 4x4 brand's first bakkie in 26 years.

A new start-up from Detroit, Rivian, showed a more futuristic take on the double cab, with its cleverly-packaged, all-electric R1T.

A pair of down-to-earth compacts, in the form of the new-generation Mazda3 and Kia Soul, also made some waves at the show, while the Audi e-tron GT, BMW Vision iNEXT and Volkswagen Buzz Cargo kept the concept car flag flying.
