Though the Mazda CX-5 has been seen before in both concept and production form, the Los Angeles Motor Show gave us the first hand look at what a U.S. spec version will look like.

L.A. 2010: 40 years of development on the Mitsubishi i

A while back, Chevrolet tried to do away with the whole “Chevy” idea. That didn’t really go along very well but here’s Mitsubishi preparing this car for the U.S. and calling it the “i”.
