It's been a week since the doors for the Geneva Motor Show opened, and they still are until this Sunday. The big theme this year is eco-friendliness, but with a twist. The twist is fun! With cars like the Volvo Polestar 1 and Honda EV concept cars, it seems like manufacturers have finally realized that people want cars that are eco friendly, but also fun. There's plenty of other interesting non-EV and non-hybrid cars as well, but 10 have stood out more than others. Hope you approve of the list.
The 2018 Geneva Motor Show is upon us, and there's plenty of new metal to get excited about. Eco-friendliness, as usual, seems to be the popular theme -- with a seemingly endless list of new electric and hybrid cars. However, a lot of manufacturers have managed to make them exciting. It seems that the days of boring, uninspiring eco-friendly cars are going away. Outside of the world of electric cars and hybrids, there's plenty of exciting new performance cars, as well as a great number of interesting new everyday cars. The doors open to the public tomorrow, check out these pics to get a preview.
The eighth-generation of the Audi A6 has arrived, complete with new styling and packed with plenty of technology for an improved, more efficient driving experience.
The Mercedes Benz E-Class has always been the benchmark for premium brand midsize sedans, thanks to its reputation for comfort and prestige. As a result – at least in Switzerland – it seems to be the default choice for many chauffeuring services, embassies, and even UberBLACK drivers. But things aren’t easy for the E-Class; facing tough competition from the likes of Volvo, BMW, Audi and even Lexus. So the E-Class always has to be that bit more appealing if it is to remain on top, and having spent a few hours with a new E300, I find out what makes it stand out over the rest.
Volvo is probably the best at making family wagons, and in recent times they’ve gotten rather stylish. The new sleek-looking V60 wagon is the latest addition to Volvo’s portfolio.
Lotus has revealed the 3-Eleven 430, a run out edition of the hardcore track focused 3-Eleven, and dubbed as Lotus’ quickest street-legal sports car.
The much anticipated track-focussed version of the Ferrari 488 GTB is here, and it’s called the 488 Pista.
Details of the latest version of what is probably one of the most hardcore, track-ready street cars are here, the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
Kia have been having a good run over the past few years in terms of having a product line-up with good-looking models, however things seem to be changing especially when you look at the new Kia Niro. I wouldn’t go as far as to call it outright ugly, but it’s still not really a car that you would buy based on its looks alone. So, with two weeks to use it as my daily runabout, I had more than enough time to find out what other good qualities it has, and if other well-established hybrids such as the Toyota Prius deserve to be overlooked in favour of this new offering.
When I finished my very short test drive in the new V90, I came out thinking that this is not your stereotypical Volvo. Gone are the days of boring, square family station wagons, and in comes the elegant, exciting, and thoroughly modern way of getting around with your family.
