|   Sunday, March 16, 2014
So, the show is over, and it's time for a recap of what we saw at this year's Geneva Auto Show. Note that we are mostly dealing with affordable, mortal car brands.
Citroen – they brought at Geneva two volume models with non-traditional lines: the new generation urban car C1, and Cactus, a unique city crossover design with unconventional and economic engines with three cylinders. Four-wheel drive is missing. The new C1 will be repositioned as a premium model judging by the list of optional equipment.


Fiat wants to reconquer the European public. After being hit with the little 500, the Italians attack now the city crossover segment with the new Panda Cross, a versatile mini with generous ground clearance and standard all-wheel drive. Also, we saw the Freemont Cross, the monocab derived from the American model Dodge Journey.

Ford - Ford Focus, the best-selling car in the world in 2013 was renewed in Geneva with a range of fresh 1.5 liter diesel and petrol engines and new assistance systems. Focus borrows from the future Mondeo the new trapezoidal grille, with a hint of Aston Martin, and the Sync2 multimedia system with 8 -inch touchscreen navigation with 3D maps.

Hyundai - two important concepts for the future of the Korean brand were shown. The PassoCorto is a compact coupe, dedicated to young customers. Endowed with a rear wheel drive and a turbocharged 1.6-liter gasoline unit with 265 hp, the study presented in Geneva is likely to go into series production with the Kia Stinger, which will share its technical architecture. The second is the Intrado concept. It announces the first small SUV class of the brand and appeal to a revolutionary propulsion system based on hydrogen fuel cells.

Nissan - the Japanese reveal the Juke facelift version of the model that virtually opened the popular city crossover segment.
Opel - prepared for Geneva, they had two interesting surprises in the form of the Astra OPC Extreme, the most powerful Astra in history, capable of developing 300 hp, and Adam Rocks, the first urban mini crossover, and ticket access to the chic segment of city cabriolets .

Peugeot - launched in Geneva was the new mini 108 model adhering to current premium segment, relying on his vast customization offer to beat rivals like the Fiat 500 and Opel Adam. Also at Geneva, Peugeot displayed the 308 SW Estate, with a huge trunk of 610 liters.

Renault - the Renault Twingo was reinvented at Geneva. Built move pass for the first time from its classic front configuration, to a rear-engine design.
Qoros – the Chinese-Israeli company showed the Qoros 3 hatchback, the eternal rival for the best-selling Volkswagen Golf, and declination of the first five-door model developed by Qoros.

Seat - at the Seat stand, we saw the Leon Cupra. The most powerful entry-level hot hatch, the panoply of compact sport, Volkswagen offers no less than 280 hp in it. The top Leon model range will not only be the most powerful Seat in production, but also the fastest.

Skoda - from Skoda, we got the Vision C, a five-door coupe announcing the coupe version of the new Octavia. Another novelty is the Octavia Scout, offered as an alternative to classical crossovers.

Toyota - Toyota is ready to show the new Aygo, a city model produced on the same technical platform and on the same assembly line with the Peugeot 108 and Citroen C1.

Volkswagen – the Germans invade Geneva with an army of refreshed or new versions of existing models, and the T-ROC concept crossover announces first city car of the brand based in Wolfsburg.
