The Small Cars of the 2014 SEMA Show

Jeep Renegade Riptide in the Mopar booth at the 2014 SEMA Show
The Jeep Renegade "Riptide" was located in the Mopar booth and featured roof racks, surfboards, black wheels and more. 
As usual, the SEMA Show is packed with a host of crazy vehicles big and small. On this site we're more concerned about the small stuff, of course, so here are some of the small car highlights from the 2014 SEMA Show.



Fiat 500 Abarth at SEMA
This Fiat 500 Abarth from the Mopar booth has a custom Abarth exhaust, two-tone paint, carbon-fiber bits, and a host of interior upgrades.

Hyundai Accent 2014 SEMA Show
 This was the only Hyundai Accent I saw at the show, but it had a clean look.

AE86 at 2014 SEMA Show
 There were a few AE86 Corollas at the show, but this one really caught my eye.

This Audi TT has an aggressive yet sophisticated look. It rolls on Rotiform wheels wrapped in Toyo tires and is slammed on an Air Lift suspension.

EMPI Meyers Manx
As far as modified compact vehicles, it doesn't get more classic than a Meyers Manx. This purple buggy was in the EMPI booth and looked great for cruising the boulevard!

ENEOS Volkswagen Beetle SEMA 2014
We like the latest iteration of Volkswagen's Beetle, but this version in the ENEOS booth look extremely mean—and in a very good way. Wide body, RWD, and a black and orange paint theme made this one bad bug.

SDX Audio Ford Fiesta SEMA 2014
The SDX Audio Ford Fiesta ST had that classic Ford strop ala Shelby Mustang, but had all the trimmings of a modern pocket rocket.

Police Ford Focus ST
It's no doubt this Ford Focus ST would provide hot pursuit to any speeders! Love the bull bar on the front and the black-and-white theme.

Scion FR-S race car 2014 SEMA Show
There were lots of Scion FR-S models at the 2014 SEMA Show including this olive drab #30 racing version. A great looking race vehicle.

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Race Car
Mazda showcased a racing version of its 2016 MX-5 Miata. It's got great lines and looks totally at home in racing livery.

Custom Orange (Hot Lava) Scion xB 2014 SEMA Show
Ever since the Scion xB debuted it's been a darling of the SEMA Show. And even after more than 10 years after its debut, they're still appearing at the show, and this one looks great.

Polaris Slingshot
If this doesn't look fun to you, you're likely not human. This is the all-new Polaris Slingshot. It's powered by a 2.4-liter GM-sourced ECOTEC engine making 173 horsepower and 166 ft/lbs of torque. Oh, and it only weighs 1,743 lbs! Power is put to the rear wheel via belt, and all that giddyup is put through a five-speed manual trans. Sign me up!

Retro Scion FR-S racecar #86 SEMA Show
This may have been one of my favorite cars at the show. This #86 Scion FR-S is done in a retro Toyota racing theme. So clean; so perfect. It was located in the Scion booth.

Retro custom Scion xB 2014 SEMA Show
Despite being long in the tooth, Scion killed it this year with this wonderfully tacky retro xB. Side pipes, shag carpet, BFGoodrich tires, Cragars, and Back-Off Yosemite Sam mudflaps all add to this amazingly done retro xB. Oh, the porthole window really makes it!

Slammed Smart ForTwo SEMA 2014
 Here's a Smart ForTwo that looks like its ready to take on the touring car circuit!

Mopar Jeep Renegade (white and blue) "Frostbite"
This is one of two custom Jeep Renegades found in the Mobar booth. This snow sports-themed "Frostbite" version had pearl white paint with blue inserts. The theme was also carried through to the interior.

2015 Honda Fit HPD race car SEMA Show
This is the all new Honda Fit in factory racing form. We'll have a post featuring all of the Honda Fits from the 2014 SEMA Show soon. FYI, the Fit was named "Hottest Sport Compact" at the show.
