Geneva Motor Show 2018
The Geneva motorshow runs from the 8th – 18th March 2018. Some of the premieres that can be seen include : –
Audi A7 Sportback
The A7 Sportback represents the new Audi design language to a great extent and delivers on the design promise made by the prologue studies.
Ford Mustang Bullitt
We really like this limited special edition celebrating the 50th anniversary of the classic Steve McQueen film. The Mustang Bullitt’s 5.0 V8 engine boosts an impressive 464 hp and 525 Nm of torque.
The all-new Honda CR-V, getting its European debut at the 2018 Geneva motor show. At first glance it doesnt look much different to the old one. It is however slightly larger than the old one giving more room for passengers. It uses Honda’s latest Intelligent Multi Mode Drive (i-MMD) hybrid system, which includes a 2.0-litre i-VTEC petrol with two electric motors.
This system doesn’t use any kind of conventional transmission, but instead features a fixed single gear ratio much like a pure electric car. Honda reckons this is both smooth and economical.
Honda Sports EV Concept
No motor show is complete without its fair share of concept cars. The Honda Sports EV concept was debuted last year and is a fully electric, two-seat sports car with retro looks.
A new (3 or 5-door) edition of the off-road pioneer, retaining its robust body-on-frame construction. The all-terrain Rubicon model has fully locking differentials and weight has been saved by the use of aluminium and magnesium throughout. The automatics have a new 8-speed gearbox.
The SsangYong Musso pickup is based on the company’s Rexton SUV. The 2.2-liter turbo diesel unit now produces 181 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. The dash has a centrally mounted 8.0-inch touchscreen that comes standard, a DAB radio, bluetooth, and MP3 connectivity. The higher spec models also include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
