The Geneva Motor Show really needs no introduction, does it. Among the most significant and foremost auto exhibitions on the calendar, the recently-concluded 84th iteration, as expected, hosted a right flurry of new vehicles – both of the production and conceptual variety – and new vehicle tech, too.
Lurking in the “absolute power corrupts absolutely” corner were things like the McLaren 650S, Lamborghini Huracan and Koenigsegg One:1, while the wraps came off performance machines such as the Abarth 695 biposto, Quadrifoglio Verde Alfas, Nissan Juke Nismo RS, Vauxhall Astra VXR EXTREME and Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake.
The third-gen Audi TT burst onto the scene; so did the bite-sized, rear-engined Renault Twingo and the three musketeers: Peugeot 108, Citroen C1 and Toyota Aygo. BMW finally goes FWD with the 2 Series Active Tourer, the Honda Civic Type R turned up in near-production guise and the Citroen C4 Cactus returns to radical with its roof-mounted airbag.
Gadgetry came in the form of Apple’s CarPlay, Nissan’s Smart Rearview Mirror, Kia’s seven-speed twin-clutch gearbox and Volvo’s new in-car control system, while the likes of the Volvo Concept Estate, Mazda Hazumi, Alfa 4C Spider, Hyundai PassoCorto and Maserati Alfieri proudly flaunted their conceptual curves.
They weren’t the only ones flaunting curves though, as you can see. Enjoy our usual motor show wrap-up post and have a great weekend!
