The Geneva motor show is the largest event on the motoring calendar, by a long way. This year will be no different, as the world’s car industry and media prepare to descend upon Switzerland to see the latest supercars and mass-market models.
More and more cars are confirmed for Geneva, every week. Here’s what we know is coming, so far:
With a new BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-class on the scene, the Audi A6 is the oldest of the ‘big three’ executive sedans. The brand has already confirmed that the new A6 will make its debut at Geneva and is likely to follow in the Prologue-like look of the A8.
It’s a race between Jaguar’s I-Pace and Audi’s E-Tron to see which electric SUV will go on sale, first; but they’ll both be revealed in production form at the Geneva show. Both cars have already been seen in concept form and neither is due to stray far from their concept’s flavour.
Bentley Bentayga PHEV and Bentayga V8
Bentley has already revealed the Bentayga V8, now but the car's first in-the-metal appearance will be at Geneva. It will sit alongside the brand's first electrified model – a plug-in hybrid version of the Bentayga that uses the same 3.0-litre hybrid powertrain as the Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid.
BMW M8 Concept
BMW's 600hp flagship won’t launch internationally until 2019; but the German brand will show a concept at the motor show which will preview the rival to Aston Martin DB11 and Mercedes-AMG S63. While official images, spy shots and leaks of the 8-series indicate the overall design of the new coupé, expect the M-badged version to feature more aggressive styling, to match the engine.
The first-generation X4 has only been around since 2014. The second-gen model has been revealed and will come to India sometime later this year. While only diesel engines are expected in the country, the X4 will rival the likes of the Range Rover Evoque. However, is the 360hp, M40i variant launches as well, then it will rival the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 Coupe.
