Ok, according to the LA Auto Show Schedule of events (http://laautoshow.com/press-conference-schedule/) Honda's Press Conference / Vehicle Debuts will begin at 12:35 PM Pacific Time.

If anyone finds a link to a live webcast of the unveil please post it here, I would be very interested in watching.

My hopes / dreams for the HR-V I hope they address the unveiling.....
- A manual transmission offered in at least LX, and hopefully EX trim levels and higher.
- An engine bigger than what the Fit has as an option if not standard
- An ACTUAL vehicles at dealerships date so I can test drive one!
- Pricing structure for each trim level
- Some hard specification figures, especially on max cargo space
- Android phone support
- Options / Accessories (seat colors, what's standard / what's optional, etc.)

The anticipation is killing me, I have half a mind to call in sick for tomorrow and drive down tonight from Sacramento to be there in-person :D

Thanks for posting this, I caught it just now. I think the CX-3 will have less cargo room than the HR-V. Honestly, I like the HR-V style a bit more, it seems like the CX-3 has too much "car" in front of the windscreen.

More info is up on the MazdaUSA.com website, but not much. I guess this is pre-production, I didn't hear any real details in the video, other than the term "Kodo Design" about a billion times.

I'm not a fan of the long Mazda hood. The Miata looks great but the other cars, not so much.

Additionally if they are putting a 2 liter engine in it, to me they are going for the Juke and not a HRV.

Finally - My buddy had the previous version Mazdaspeed 3 wagon. It was so narrow that he had to take his woods out of his golf bag to fit the bag in hit trunk. Not sure how much wider the new versions are, or if they are at all.

Ok, we've seen the HR-V in LA, let's check up on my wish list.....
1) Manual Trans (yes), It'll be interesting if it's in the EX-L trim, but LX and EX are fine for me.

2) Bigger Engine (1.8), but not as much hp as I was hoping

3) Availability (----), well I can't get everything. I did hear the Honda executive in an interview at the donut shop say "early spring 2015", but everyone else is saying "spring". Slip of the tongue? My guess, they're hoping for March.

4) Pricing (---), still waiting

5) Specs. (yes and no). I got my max cargo size of 58.8 but more details would have been nice.

6) Android (---) Haven't heard anything

7) Options (yes) - And there's quite a few.

8) Colors - not in my original post, so far we know it comes in a deep blue and urban grey.
