Geneva Motor Show 2012 Preview

Geneva Motor Show 2012

Geneva Motor Show 2012

With the 2012 Geneva Motor Show now upon us, we take a look at what you can expect to find at the biggest Motor Show – in the world.

The Geneva Motor Show is the closest thing most European car makers get to a proper home show these days, so it’s always going to be a show full of big name reveals, lots of new cars and more than a handful of barking mad concepts.

We’ve reported over the last few months on what you can expect to arrive at Geneva, from the new Ferrari F12 Berlinetta to the Hyundai i20 facelift for 2012.

So as a preview of what Geneva 2012 has in store this next week, we thought we’d have a quick look at what you can expect. There will probably be a few surprises beyond what’s here, but you can keep up to date all next week by checking in to our Geneva Motor Show News, where every reveal – and everything so far – will be in one place.
