The 2011 Geneva Motor Show will take place on Thursday March 3, 2011, that’s just a day to digest all the details given to us during Apple’s press event for the iPad 2. This will be the 81st auto show from Geneva, and as always will be a common ground for a host of carmakers to show us what they have and will have for the future. However, if you are like us, then it will be the concept cars that appeal to us the most.
This year will be no different, and some cars have already been teased ahead of the show, but picking the best ones will be a little hard. One of the most recent additions is the Ssangyong SUT1 concept, but what we like about this model is how a production version is planned to hit the streets next year.
As always Mazda will be bringing something special to the show, and this year they will give us the Minagi concept. This CUV will most likely be called the CX-5 once it hits production, but we are not so convinced about this design, as it reminds us a little of a BMW 1-series. Although, we do expect to see a huge amount of technology packed into this one.
One of the most exciting has to be the Infiniti compact concept; this model will be all about the performance. Not much is really known about this car, but we do know that it will be powered by an engine collaboration with Renault-Nissan and Daimler. That’s all we know at the moment, but the news will come thick and fast in a few short days. For more details visit the official website for the 81st International Motor Show.
It is so hard to say how popular this year’s Geneva Motor Show will be, but there has been a trend that these auto shows has been losing their appeal. No matter what the carmakers do, consumers are just not willing to put their hands in their pockets as much as they used to. What will do industry do to counter this issue?
