The press days for the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show are set to occur on September 12th and 13th, followed by a public show that will run through September 24th of 2017.
The 67th International Motor Show (IAA) Cars will run under the slogan “Future now,” dedicated to the core topics of automotive transformation. The key aspects will include connected and automated driving, electric mobility, and new mobility concepts for the cities of the future.
More details can be found at the official website for the Frankfurt Motor show.
Acting as a quick overview of what was released at the show - and a guide to what content will be available - is this list that will be updated live as we integrate our images, OEM press kit images, and OEM press releases from the show into our Vehicle Information Center.
Here we will have a few of the auto show highlights with some details about each vehicle:
2018 Kia Stonic: The Stonic is a Europe-only model built on the same all-new platform that underpins the new Hyundai Kona. The Stonic will be motivated by a 1.0L turbocharged I-3, a 1.4L I-4, or a 1.6L diesel I-4. Available safety features include automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, and high-beam assist.
Redesigns / Refreshes:
2019 Porsche Cayenne: The latest generation Cayenne moves to the MLB platform that underpins Audi's Q7 and drops 143 pounds in the process despite adding new safety features and additional passenger space. Eventually there will be two Plug-In Hybrid models - one based on the 2.9L V-6 and a range-topping V-8 model called the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid. Inside the new Cayenne is a dash again similar to the new Panamera's - the center console retains a few physical controls but also introduces capacitive touch buttons behind glass surfaces. The Cayenne will have a host of performance related options like a Sport Chrono package that will add a 48-volt electrical system with adaptive roll-bars, all-wheel-steering, and adjustable air suspension, as well as Porsche's Surface Coated Brakes which add a tungsten-carbide layer to iron rotors to extend longevity, improve performance, and reduce brake dust.
Kia Proceed Concept: The Proceed Concept presents a new large wagon bodystyle for Kia. The concept is equipped with a Luminline feature that illuminates the outline of the car's glasshouse as drivers approach the car. Retains the athleticism of the current Proceed model, while combining its striking visual presence with a real-world versatility. The dashboard has been painted in the same deep red metallic color as the exterior and features knurled aluminum knobs. There are various in-car aromas available for drivers and passengers to choose from.
