Default Geneva Motor Show 2016

Having spent the first part of last week in Geneva, it would be cruel not to share more pics of the other cars on show .

Default Audi

The Audi Q2 was one of the key launches. With the EA288 2.0Tdi, enigne, I am a bit confused about the positioning on this car. With smaller engines, not on display, it might make sense at another price point.

Rear end reminds me of the 1st gen Audi A3. Looks different from the rest of the Q's

Default Q2 Interiors

Audi A2 interiors

Interiors are rather spartan compared to the Q3. Virtual cockpit will feature in this small model.

Alfo Giulia sporty saloon. It looked good and the driving position felt spot on. I hope it drives as well as it looks

The interiors were the place to be! You could literally move in

Now compare the ambience to the rear of the Merc S600 Maybach. No contest. I must admit, the Maybach seats were much more comfortable. My guess is that the Maybach would make a case as a highspeed landjet. The Bentley has a sense of occasion

Fiat Tipo - frankly, I was disappointed, it was bland and looked like another euro-box. Expect it to make its mark as a hire car. Interiors were pretty low rent

Fiat 124 spider and the original. I loved this car. Yes, it is a Mazda MX5 underneath but with the Fiat engine, it could have a character of its own.

BMW did not have much to show except for some uprated M cars. Their stand was all about the 7

Here is the M760iL . Frankly, it looks evil and I loved the matt brown paintwork

After sitting in the Bentley, this felt like a comfy tent

BMW also had an original 750i on display. My pic never came out. Sit in it and you realise how far interiors have come
