LA Autoshow – What’s New in #Design

Looking at exterior design, one aspect that is prominent this year at the LA Autoshow is the use of vertical daytime running lights (DRL).  From Cadillac to VW you will notice the integration of DRLs with lower grille inserts and going from a horizontal to a vertical look.
