Get Excited For Geneva 2019: A Preview Guide For Every Big Reveal

2019 Geneva Motor Show / 20 Comments

There are plenty of awesome cars coming this year.

The 2019 Geneva Motor Show kicks off next week when exotic automakers like Bugatti, Ferrari, and Lamborghini will show off their latest supercars, while a host of mainstream models will also be making their world debut. Some automakers have already jumped the gun with their big reveals but we've included them in the preview anyway. Here are the most exciting cars you should look out for at Geneva 2019.

Alfa Romeo

Italian automaker Alfa Romeo has a slew of reveals ready for Geneva. Most of these include subtle model year updates to existing vehicles like the Stelvio and (Europe-only) Giulietta as well as Formula 1 Special Edition versions of the Giulia and Stelvio. The brand also has a "mystery model" to show, which may be the upcoming 8C or GTV revival or a smaller crossover below the Stelvio.

Aston Martin

Aston Martin also plans to reveal multiple new models at Geneva. The UK sports car maker will show off its upcoming Ferrari-fighting supercar, which is codenamed Project 003. On a more practical note, Aston will reveal the Lagonda All-Terrain Concept, which previews the brand's upcoming DBX crossover.

Audi

Audi has already teased its big reveal, a smaller electric crossover to sit below the e-tron. It's called the Q4 e-tron Concept and it's expected to arrive in late 2020 or early 2021 as a production model. There will also be a facelifted version of the 400 horsepower five-cylinder TT-RS.

Bentley

Even though Bentley has already revealed the Bentayga Speed - aka the fastest SUV in the world - the UK brand is saving a new race-inspired model to celebrate the company's 100th anniversary.

BMW

BMW doesn't have anything new to show off at Geneva but it will display the facelifted Alpina B7 xDrive and its new three-row X7 SUV.

Bugatti

We already know Bugatti is set to show off a limited edition version of the Chiron Sport called the 110 Ans. Only 20 examples will be built and we're sure they have already been sold out. Bugatti may also make a splash with a one-off car inspired by the 57 SC Atlantic.

Ferrari

After what seems like an endless period of domination by the McLaren 720S, Ferrari has finally shown the replacement for the 488 GTB: the F8 Tributo. Power comes from the same 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 found in the 488 Pista producing 720 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque. Ferrari hopes this new car will steal headlines away from the 720S and we have no doubt the Italian automaker will not struggle to sell this new mid-engine sports car.

Ginetta

It isn't just the big automakers making a splash at Geneva, boutique automakers will also have their day. UK-based Ginetta is showing off its yet-unnamed supercar, which pairs a lightweight body with a powerful 6.0-liter V8 engine producing over 600 hp. Only 20 examples will be built and 14 have already been sold.

Honda

As a mainstream automaker, Honda has its work cut out for it to dazzle alongside exotic automakers. The Japanese automaker is showing off its new e Prototype Urban EV, which is meant to display a future EV model. Honda claims it will go 124 miles on a single charge and that the battery can be recharged by 80% in just 30 minutes.

Kia

Even though its sister brand Hyundai is sitting out of Geneva this year, Kia is gearing up to show off two new models. The first is a new crossover called the xCeed. The second is a stylish electric concept, which doesn't have a name yet.

Lamborghini

Lamborghini's big reveal is the convertible version of the Huracan Evo, the Evo Spyder. Like the coupe, the Evo Spyder is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 producing 640 hp. Pricing starts at $287,400, which is around $26,000 more than the coupe.

Lancia

Alright, so this new Stratos isn't actually produced by Lancia but an Italian coachbuilder called Manifattura Automobili Torino will happily take a customer's Ferrari 430 and turn it into this awesome Stratos tribute. The company will be showing off the first two of a planned 25-unit production run. The second example will be coming to the US and will even feature a manual transmission.

Lexus

Lexus may not have anything new to show at Geneva but Europeans will get their first live look at the stunning LC Convertible Concept and the hardcore RC F Track Edition.

Mazda

Mazda has a few reveals in store for Geneva, including the European debuts of the Miata 30th Anniversary edition and the 2019 Mazda3 hatchback. The brand's biggest reveal is being kept secret, a new crossover model slotted between the CX-3 and CX-5. We expect it to be called the CX-4.

McLaren

It may not be a fresh reveal like the Ferrari F8 but McLaren will be present at the show with the new 720S Spider.

Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes has a trio of reveals planned for Geneva but the German automaker has already shown us the facelifted GLC. We can still look forward to the CLA Shooting Brake, which won't be sold the US and the new V-Class van, which also won't be sold in the US.

Mitsubishi

Mitsubishi has dedicated itself to crossovers in recent years and the Japenese automaker will show two new ones at Geneva. The first is a facelifted version of the ASX, which will be sold in the US as the Outlander Sport. The second is an electric concept called the Engelberg Tourer Concept.

Morgan

Boutique UK automaker Morgan will be showing off a new sports car, codenamed the Widebody. This will be the first Morgan to feature a new powertrain after the company's deal with BMW to supply engines ran out.

Nissan

Nissan's big reveal is the IMQ Concept, which previews a future electric crossover. The Japanese automaker will also show off the Leaf Nismo RC race car.

Pininfarina

Pininfarina is a design company famous for styling some of the most beautiful Ferrari models. Now, the Italian design house is building its own supercar called the Battista, named after the company's founder. This all-electric supercar will produce a whopping 1,900 hp and be sold for over $2 million.

Polestar

The Geneva Motor Show will be the first opportunity to see the new Polestar 2 in the metal. This all-electric sportback is targeted right at the Tesla Model 3 with a 275-mile range and dual electric motors producing 400 hp. The first Launch Edition models will be sold starting at $63,000 minus a $7,500 tax credit in the US.

Porsche

Porsche's big reveals have all happened online already but the German automaker will still be displaying the new 992 911 Carrera Cabriolet and the lightweight 718 Boxster T and 718 Cayman T.

RUF

One of the stars of the show will be the RUF CTR Anniversary, a throwback to the original RUF CTR Yellowbird from the 1980s. This hand-built sports car features a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, carbon fiber body panels, and a twin-turbo 3.6-liter flat-six engine producing 700 hp. Alongside the CTR Anniversary, RUF will debut the new RUF GT, which is based on the 991 generation 911 and packs a 3.0-liter flat-six producing 515 hp.

Subaru

Rather than just reveal a new car, Subaru will be showing off a new hybrid version of its boxer engine. The Japanese brand will also show a new hot hatchback concept called the Viziv Adrenaline.

Toyota

The 2020 Toyota GR Supra made its debut at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show but the highly-anticipated sports car will make its European debut at Geneva.

Volkswagen

Of the Volkswagen reveals, we are most excited to see the all-electric Buggy Concept. VW will also be showing off the updated European Passat sedan and wagon and T-Roc R crossover, both of which won't be sold in the US.
