Auto Show Highlights
Deliveries of the Vantage Roadster will begin in the second quarter, Aston Martin maker says. As with the Vantage, the engine is a 375kW (510PS) version of the AMG 4.0-litre V8 engine used by the DB11 V8. Torque is quoted as 685Nm.
The next-generation A3 Sportback is set to premiere. It will use the same platform as the current model, albeit heavily updated as per the Golf Mark VIII.
The Mulliner coachbuilding division will reveal a GT called Bacalar. Another debutante is the Continental GT Mulliner Convertible, which has a unique grille and special 22-inch wheels.
Joining the standard and extended wheelbase plug-in hybrid X1s is the X2 xDrive25e. The powertrain is identical to that in the X1 xDrive25e and X1 xDrive25Le. This consists of a 92kW/125hp 1,499cc three-cylinder turbo which has a maximum torque of 220Nm. It transfers its power to a six-speed Steptronic automatic transmission and drives the front wheels. The electric motor generates outputs of 70kW/95hp and 165Nm. This is sent to the rear wheels via a single-speed transmission. Combined outputs are 162kW/220hp and 385Nm. The range in EV mode is 55-57km.
Other debuts at Geneva include the 330e Touring, 330e XDrive, 330e xDrive Touring, M340d xDrive, and M340d XDrive Touring. The first three are petrol plug-in hybrids, while the all-wheel-drive M340d sedan and estate are 48V mild hybrids powered by a 250kW (340hp) and 700Nm 3.0-liter I6 diesel engine.
After being shown to the media on February 20th, this will be the public premiere for the Cupra Leon and Leon eHybrid, the latter being the plug-in hybrid. Deliveries will not commence until the fourth quarter. The eHybrid will likely have the same powertrain as the Golf GTE and therefore higher outputs than the SEAT Leon eHybrid. That means a 180kW (245PS) 1.4-liter petrol turbo engine and a single motor combination, with energy stored in a 13kWh lithium-ion battery. Both five-door hatchback and estate body styles will be available.
A press release says the brand will "will present a world preview of the most accessible 100% electric city car on the market". This will be a show car, not a series production model.
This is the only Groupe PSA brand attending the show, with DS stating that it will have two world premieres: a production model (likely to be a new 4 Crossback or 5 Crossback) and a concept.
FCA executives stated at last year's Geneva that a new 500 and a new 500 Electric would be world debuts at the 2020 edition of the show. Now there is a question mark over this, as a mild hybrid version of the existing car has only just been announced. Confusingly called the 500 Hybrid, Geneva will be its auto show debut. The same 51kW and 92Nm 1.0-liter powertrain features in the Panda Hybrid, another model making its motor show debut.
Sold mainly in Europe and India, the i20 is already up for replacement - the current car is only five years old. The new model offers the choice of 84PS, 100 and 120PS petrol engines, the two most powerful of which will be available as mild hybrids.
The i30 is another debut for Hyundai, albeit a facelift rather than a new model. The brand will also reveal an EV concept called Prophecy.
MQ4, a new generation of the Sorento/KX7 will have its motor show debut. The architecture will be HMG's N3, as introduced by the Hyundai Sonata in 2019.
The Huracán Evo Rear-Wheel Drive was announced in January. It is powered by a 449 kW (610 hp) and 560 Nm version of the firm's 5,204 cc naturally aspirated V-10, with drive via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Dry weight is said to be 1,389 kg.
An updated E-Class sedan and wagon will premiere, with new engines, updated safety systems, and a mid-life facelift.
The GLE Coupe equivalents of the GLE 63 4MATIC+ and 63 S 4MATIC+ (revealed at the LA show last November) are introduced. They are the GLE 63 4MATIC+ Coupe and GLE 63 S 4MATIC+ Coupe, both powered by a 3,982 cc twin-turbo V-8 and 16 kW (22 Nm) and 250 Nm 'EQ Boost' starter-generator. The 63's engine produces 420 kW (571 hp) and combined torque is 750 Nm. Corresponding outputs for the GLE 63 S are 450 kW (612 hp) and 850 Nm.
The current Boxster and Cayman have been around since 2012 so new variants are needed to maintain interest in these old cars. The 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 and 718 Boxster GTS 4.0 are powered by a 294 kW (400PS) 4.0L H-6 engine which spins to 7,800 rpm. The transmission is a 6-speed manual, the ride height is dropped by 20 mm and there is a sports exhaust.
There will be a facelift for the Mégane range, along with the Mégane E-Tech Plug-in. The latter has the same petrol-electric powertrain as the PHEV Captur. Deliveries will commence in August. The Twingo Z.E. is another world debut, as is the Morphoz concept.
The fourth-generation Leon is to have its public premiere, following a 28 January debut at a special event at SEAT's Martorell base.
For its new generation, the Octavia RS (vRS in the UK) becomes a plug-in hybrid, its official model name being Octavia RS iV. Other details are still under wraps.
The Kamiq Scoutline also premieres. This has exterior changes which include LED taillights and matte black wheel arch liners, special wheels and silver mirror caps.
A second small SUV to join the C-HR in European markets will be revealed at the show. The new model will share much with the Yaris. Both will be manufactured at the TMMF Onnaing plant near Valenciennes.
The Golf GTD and Golf GTI will be revealed, each powered by revised versions of the turbocharged 2.0-liter engines which powered the seventh generation versions. That means 147 kW / 201 PS for the GTD, 180 kW / 245 PS for the GTI, and 221 kW / 300 PS for the GTI TCR trim.
