7 New Cars Saying Hello in Geneva Next Month
We’ve covered a couple of the upcoming debuts at the nearing New York Auto show in April, but before that event rolls around, the eyes of the auto industry will be resting on Geneva, Switzerland when the Geneva Auto Show kicks off next month.
The last big auto show in Chicago was somewhat short on performance and fun, but heavy on utility and practical vehicles — so many are hoping that Geneva will hold some exciting prospects. It’s off to a decent start; McLaren’s 650S will be making its initial introduction there, and Volkswagen will be parading an all-new hybrid Golf GTI-type model. Here are seven vehicles that will be making their first public appearances at Geneva in the next couple weeks.
1. Audi TT
When Audi revealed the allroad shooting brake, whispers were indicating that it represented a sort of hatchback-off-road version of the TT. Judging by the sketch released by Audi earlier this week, we can see that those rumors don’t appear to be too far off; the TT appears the showoff with squared headlights and grille setup from the shooting brake, but retains the TT’s signature rounded roofline and center-oriented profile. No power train details have yet emerged.
