Organizers of the 2013 L.A. Auto Show announced that 22 vehicles would be making their world debuts at the show in November, with a total of 56 vehicle debuts overall.

"As one of the world's largest media hubs and car buying markets, Los Angeles offers a unique combination of press exposure and valuable consumer contact," L.A. Auto Show President Lisa Kaz said in a statement Wednesday.

Among the automakers with scheduled global premieres are BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Porsche, Subaru and Toyota.

Some of the world debuts have already been announced: Porsche's all-new Macan compact SUV will be shown for the first time, alongside the company's all-new 911 Turbo Cabriolet. Mini's all-new Cooper will make its auto show debut in L.A.

In addition to the world debuts, the L.A. show will see plenty of North American debuts. These include cars that first showed up at the Frankfurt show: Mercedes' compact GLA 250 crossover, Volkswagen's electric Golf, BMW's i8 plug-in hybrid sports car and Audi's A3 convertible.

And General Motors plans to bring its trio of recently announced full-size SUVs — the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, the GMC Yukon and the Cadillac Escalade — to L.A.

The 2013 L.A. Auto Show will be open to the media Nov. 19 to 21, and the general public Nov. 22 to Dec. 1.
