This was my fourth time in Geneva’s Motor Show. I had to be there to see the new Jeep Renegade, the Maserati Alfieri, the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider and the new rivals of the Fiat 500. European car market seems to be growing again, and Geneva is a proof of that. Many new cars, proposals and interesting concepts that I had the pleasure to visit and I share with you.
The new Twingo
When I saw the first pictures I immediately associated it with the Fiat 500. After seeing it in Geneva I must say that it is not that close to the beautiful Fiat. The new Twingo is boxy, and it looks more like an Indian city-car (it reminds me the Hyundai Santro). However it looks fresh and I’m sure is going to be a success.
It could be the ugliest car of the whole auto show. Bad taste, terrible colours, too many lines and details. The X in the front looks awful, while the rear view looks more Chinese than Japanese.
New Citroën C1
Even if it’s a twin brother of the Aygo, the Citroën looks quite nice. Nice front view, nice headlights and dimensions.
Too many lines and details for a city-car. It doesn’t look bad, but it is not what you expect when thinking of A-segment car.
My friends and I had the opportunity to get in Rolls-Royce stand. We were guided by dedicated staff who showed us the whole current range. Amazing cars.
Citroën C4 Cactus
It disappointed me. It looks small and lacks of grace. You don’t understand if it is a small SUV or a regular passenger car. With the basic trim, it looks cheap. I didn’t like it.
An amazing flagship specially on its 3-door version. It’s so big and shocking. The rear view isn’t a Mercedes. I loved the interior of the new C-Class.
BMW Active Tourer
It looks nice. I think BMW did a good job designing its first small MPV. The rear view is almost the same of the Mercedes B-Class. This BMW is going to be another success.
I like it, and I like it a lot. However it’s hard to see the differences with the previous generation. It will be an enormous success.
Mini Clubman Concept
It is not a Mini. I don’t like it as a concept and how it looks. But the stop lights Lead look fantastic (not the form).
I love this SUV. It could be my favorite. It’s elegant, big, strong and unique. Its exterior design is a good as its interior.
Amazing Jaguar. It is absolutely gorgeous and balanced: the perfect combination of good taste in a sporty package that conquered my heart.
Mazda 2 Concept
An interesting concept that combines the Mazda’s latest designs with a small package.
Skoda Vision C
It was VW’s most interesting car. Very good shaped lines and interesting proposal for a future sporty sedan. Alfa Romeo should look carefully this car.
New Audi TT
It looks nice because it doesn’t change. The previous generation was very pretty, and the new one is almost the same. Audi: nice cars but boring designs.
I like it more than the Cayenne. The new Macan has everything to be a complete success. Porsche did well to boost its cash machine, but it hurts its real fans with a mid-size SUV.
The color is fantastic and so the car. Even if I prefer the Ferraris, I must recognize that the latest Lambos are just amazing.
