The 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show is officially in the books, where the world got its first looks at a range of all-new cars, trucks and SUVs including the new Porsche Macan small SUV, the next-gen Mini Cooper, and a totally redesigned Chevy Colorado midsize pickup truck -- in addition to some cool new concept cars.

And as we do every year in conjunction with the LA Auto Show, we announced the 2014 Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards.

The first of the country's four big auto shows, the Los Angeles Auto Show always plays host to a wide range of world debuts but is a particularly popular venue for launching cars from two ends of a spectrum: sexy performance cars and efficiency-focused models. The 2013 edition tipped toward the fun side of the scale, as you'll see below.

All-new Cars

The worldwide reveal of the 2014 Porsche Macan was among the signature debuts of the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. Porsche's second SUV is smaller than the Cayenne, and arguably sportier because of it. But it was just one of several noteworthy new production models unveiled in LA, as highlighted below.

New Twists

The Honda Civic was all-new for 2012, significantly refreshed for 2013, and now improved again for 2014 with the addition of a continuously variable transmission, a pinch- and swipe-enabled touchscreen and bolder styling for the coupe, among a host of other noteworthy enhancements. More updated models follow.

Concept Cars

The Ford Edge Concept provides an early if not wholly accurate look at the all-new production model Edge set to arrive in about a year. Even though they're not destined for anyone's driveway, concept cars are always among the most popular cars at any auto show. The small crop of concepts unveiled at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show was no different.
