Geneva Motor Show 2018: Here are the key cars to look out for

Features | Published:

The Geneva Motor Show kicks off next week – but what should you be looking out for? Here are our favourites

It’s that time of year once again, and the Geneva Motor Show is upon us again.

Home to some of the biggest reveals in the motoring world, it’s an insight into where the future of driving will be heading – and allows a look at some of the key models that manufacturers are yet to introduce to market.

Here are some of the cars you need to look out for at this year’s show, which kicks off on March 6 for members of the press before opening to the public on March 8.

Audi A6

The new A6 replaces a hugely popular vehicle

Expect more on-board technology, as well as a sharper exterior design when this latest A6 is unveiled.

Bentley Bentayga V8


The Bentaya V8 remains a luxurious option

This V8-powered version makes for a more economical prospect compared to the W12-powered Bentayga currently available.

Alpina XD3


The XD3 features four turbochargers

The XD3 is the firm’s take on the latest X3 SUV. It’s powered by a 3.0-litre diesel engine with four turbochargers, and that gives it enough power to hit 60mph in under five seconds. It’ll be one of the more understated cars of the show, but one worth checking out nonetheless.

Lexus UX

The UX is the latest crossover to come from Lexus

The likelihood is that the UX will be powered by a hybrid or petrol engine, as is found in the rest of Lexus’ line-up.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS

The GT3 RS is a track-focused racer for the road

It’s certainly one to look out for at the year’s show, particularly if the showcar is finished in the vibrant colour seen on the initial press images.

Range Rover SV Coupe

The Range Rover SV Coupe is a luxurious off-roader

With quilted leather used throughout the cabin it’s a luxurious looking place to be, while the main infotainment screen appears similar to that found in the current Range Rover Velar.

Hyundai Kona Electric

The Kona Electric takes on established rivals in the all-electric segment

A claimed all-electric range of 300 miles puts it in the same league as the all-conquering Tesla models, too.

Jaguar I-Pace

The I-Pace takes on rivals from Tesla

Mercedes-Benz A-Class

The new A-Class replaces a very popular existing model

Though we’ve already seen pictures, this will be the very first time that media and public have been able to get up close and personal with the A-Class.

Ferrari 488 Pista

The 488 Pista is the latest in a long line of lightweight Ferrari cars

A stripped-out interior and more aero tweaks will make this Ferrari one of the most capable yet.
