2014 Fiat 500L | 2012 LA Auto Show
You may not be seeing 2014 Fiat 500s where you live, but here in LA, they're everywhere. This is the perfect place, then, to unveil the FIAT 500's "big" brother at the 2012 LA Auto Show. This is the Fiat 500L. The L stands for Large, but that's a relative term since this is still 17 inches shorter in length than a Ford Fiesta. The first car on Fiat's all-new "small-wide" vehicle architecture, the built-in-Serbia 2014 500L is coming this summer to test if the U.S.'s modest appetite for not-totally-small compact cars has more room for expansion.

2014 Chevrolet Spark EV | 2012 LA Auto Show
The 2014 Chevy Volt is not an electric car. It's actually better in many ways, since its gas engine means you don't need a second car or a train ticket to go further than 80 miles. But GM must think a full-electric is still a good idea, and especially one that's reasonably cheap because this is the Chevy Spark EV. As you can tell, this, like every Spark, is very small. But unlike some other tiny electric cars this still feels like an actual, well, car. It has four doors, four seats and is actually pretty comfortable. It can't match the Nissan Leaf in terms of space and refinement, and doesn't come remotely close to the Volt either, but it is cheaper. How cheap? Chevy says about $25,000 after federal tax rebates. That is definitely a hefty price of entry to a Chevy Spark, but remember that the long-term cost to own for an electric car like this will be much lower than its gas equivalent. You always have to look at the big picture with EVs.
