The Los Angeles Auto Show is known as the place where automotive companies launch their sports cars and SUVs and the 2016 show didn’t disappoint. With more than 50 unveilings at this year’s show, nearly half of them were SUVs. That means awesome off-roaders with really interesting technology made their debuts. Here are seven of our favorite vehicles that make getting outside a ton more fun.
Kia Sorrento Ski Gondola
The Perfect Ski-mobile
Another autonomous concept that Kia showed off at SEMA in Las Vegas was the Kia Sorrento Ski Gondola, a Sorrento SUV with snow-cat treads instead of tires. It also graces the floor of the Los Angeles Auto Show this week.
The Ski Gondola concept has space for skis on the roof, and four center-facing seats with enough room for big boots, helmets, and jackets as you make the trek to the highest snowy peaks. The floor and seats get a treatment of waterproof Line-X to prevent any damage from snow and ice melt from boots.
It could be a real blast to take this baby up a mountainside if it ever becomes reality.
