Detroit city population: 672,662
Difference: 3.31 million

Detroit MSA: 4.29 million spread out over 3,888.4 sq mi
L.A. city: 4 million, over 468 sq. mi

L.A. city nearly contains the entire population Detroit MSA, yet uses 12% of the land to do so. Yup, they sure seem similar in nearly every respect.
