BMW stall was another crowd puller with almost all their performance oriented cars displayed in full glory.

Models on display were the mental M5, M6, 335i with a lovely color theme and the regular beemers like the 330d and 520d

I spent some time sitting in the M5 and M6 and felt more comfortable in the M5 which also happens to be my dream car ( apart from the GTR, ofcourse)

M6 is rather low and feels tight inside with low all round visibility when your at the steering wheel.

Next pit stop was at the Chevrolet Stall which was housed on the first floor of the same auditorium as where the F-type was showcased.

I think it was probably the second largest stall in the entire motor show (second only to Renault which was the BEST decorated, pictures of it will come up in subsequent posts)

Chevy stall had the following cars showcased ( more in next post) :-

1. Chevrolet Cruze ( WTCC version)

2. Corvette ( Lovely looking white and silver theme. However, interiors looked rather dull as you can see from the pictures)

3. Camaro in Grey and Red. Red suits the camaro so nicely

Your's Truly with the WTCC Cruze

^^ Thanks for the pictures.

Dude, you missed the Chevy Trax and the Cruze Wagon? Also, the Malibu looks gorgeous!
Orlando, looks innocent though. If you do have the pictures of Trax & Cruze Wagon, do post.

No. I did not miss clicking them. I just saved it for the next post due to limitation of pictures one can post in a single post

Here you go, pictures of the following Chevy Cars :-

1.) New Aveo hatchback

2.) Chevy Spark ( Beat in India)

3.) New Cruze ( Current one looks so much better, doesnt it?)

4.) Chevy Trax ( Competition to Duster, Ecosport etc)

5.) Cruze Station Wagon ( I wasnt impressed when I saw it in flesh)

6.) Concept vehicles code named True 140S and 130R ( Both were looking gorgeous)

This post brings to you the cars presented at the Skoda and Suzuki stall

Skoda
I saw the Rapid TSI and TDI versions presented which were more or less almost similar to the ones in India. However, I noticed that interiors of all these similar products meant for the European market have quality a notch higher than what we get for the Indian Market

Suzuki

a) New Grand Vitara

b) SX4 in hatch version (I thought it looked weird)

c) Swift (Hot as ever)

d) Alto (A-Star in India)

Mobike,
Appears that you had a fantastic time at the Paris Motor Show clicking away those beauties. Did you see any Indian Presence/Stalls put up? Also apart from the regular luxury liners were there any other exquisite cars on display like the Mclaren X1 or any likes of it?

Also would you post in on any motorcycles that were launched?
