We are excited to welcome Hawthorne Motors Pre-owned to Driverbase! Drivers near Hawthorne, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach CA now have access to a wide range of quality preowned inventory from a highly rated independent dealership.
All-Electric Ford Mustang Mach-E
Ford goes mach? Mach-E. Mustang style. You have to see it for yourself. Nothing more to add. #spoiler alert.
The new SUV is replacing the outgoing Touareg. You can also race your best friend head to head on the pair of GTIs on the simulator. Keep an eye out there may be a Space Vizzion concept that can open and close the doors for you. Be quick it shows up and then disappears on its own. Expect Volkswagen Group to go hard and heavy into the electric car market. You can find the Audi and Porsche offerings here this week too.
Land Rover Defender
Two doors or four? Land Rover goes throw back on the all new Defenders. After checking these trucks out turn around and go back to see what Alfa has on display.
Subaru Series White WRX, STI, and BRZ
Whats better than two of something? Three. Well technically only two of the three are white edition. The BRZ sits next to the STI and WRX to round out Subaru’s sport car manual segment. These cars are hiding just outside of the US National Parks exhibit where you can find the 2020 Forester SUV.
BMW M2 Clubsport
One of a hand full of 3 pedal cars on the floor. Make your way over to BMW to see and touch the all new M2 ClubSport. Don’t forget to check out the Alpina B7, X5M, M4 and the rest of the BMW fleet. After you are done take a quick walk over to the next booth to lay eyes on the Mini John Copper Works GP.
Honda CR-V Hybrid
Honda goes greener. The ever popular compact SUV gets a hybrid. Borrowing its power plant from the hybrid Accord with total power output of 212hp. Sales start spring 2020. Expect 40mpg. Class leading for small SUVs. If SUVs aren’t your thing wander over to Honda’s luxury brand Acura and sign up for a ride in the NSX, try their GT3 NSX simulator, or check out the beautiful red A-Spec PMC TLX amongst others.
Porsche Taycan Electric
Porsche has three of its all new electric cars on display at Petree Hall (hang a right when coming up the escalators before entering the west main floor). You will also find the Cayman GT4, 992 4S, Chopard RSR 911, their ABB Formula E car, and the reaming fleet of SUVs and sedans.
Zoom Zoom. Slotting in between the larger CX5, and the smaller CX3, the CX-30 fills that goldilocks just right segment. You’ll also find a Miata RF with 3 pedals. If you haven’t figured it out yet we are on a scavenger hunt for the long lost art of rowing your own gears.
Audi RS6 Avant
Now available for the first time in the United States. Audi’s biggest and fastest wagon at 591hp does zero to sixty in under 4 seconds. Welcome to the long awaited family ‘grocery getter’. Check out the rest of the RS cars on hand in the South Hall.
Toyota TRD Pro Tundra, Tacoma, and 4runner
Spend some time over at Toyota. They are buried in the back corner. You’ll find green Tundras, 4runners, and Tacomas climbing rocks. While there wander over to see the first ever hybrid Corolla. Toyota also is showcasing the Mirai fuel cell concept. The US Ski team has a 360 degree camera setup and you are free to jump and get a group 3d pose there.

Driverbase has developed a patent pending personalized vehicle recommendation system for drivers and today’s announcement accelerates the integration of dealership vehicle listings with Driverbase vehicle class recommendations.
The car search experience is getting more difficult
Car- buying journeys now include “900 digital touch-points in a 3 month period with 71% on mobile” according to a recent Google study. Drivers are owning vehicles for longer and prices are increasing so choosing the optimal vehicle is even more important. The vehicle market has become more complex and fragmented with model lineup changes, new propulsion types, and autonomous driving technologies.
