In the aftermath of the 84th Geneva Motor Show here at Insure 4 a Day we once again wade knee-deep through the glitz, glamour and hyperbole to bring you the main things we found out about this year’s event over in Switzerland.
The Lamborghini Huracan has Arrived
A replacement for the now decade-old Gallardo (has it really been that long?), the new Lamborghini Huracan takes its name from a Spanish fighting bull from 1879 that was known for its courage.
The 5.2-litre V10 engine delivers a top speed of 202mph and can reach 62 in a staggering 3.2 seconds, taking just 6.7 seconds to reach 124mph.
How does it look? Oh, it’s alright..
The Focus is Getting a Facelift
Although the exterior of Ford’s key vehicle has had a touch up – with a bolder front bumper, slimmer headlights and larger power bulge at the rear – it is inside where the Focus has received the most attention, replacing the overbearing and button-heavy console of the previous iteration with a touch screen pad which is simpler as well as more compact.
It will be going on sale in July, and we’d fully expect the new Ford Focus to continue the brand’s domination of the family car market.
Renault Find their Form
Let’s face it, Renault hasn’t done much of note in recent years, but their latest rear-wheel drive city car is looking really quite interesting.
The Twingo is particularly petite, measuring in at 3.59 metres long, 1.64 metres wide and 1.55 metres tall, and promises to be an absolute riot to drive. Available in four ‘pop’ colours – light blue, red, white and yellow – Renault will hope they have created the perfect small city car.
We weren’t wrong to be excited by the Mercedes-Benz Concept S-Class Coupé
We got very excited when we saw the Mercedes-Benz Concept S-Class Coupé back in January, and it was the real deal that got an outing at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, and it looks just as gorgeous as we’d imagined.
With bold lines the new S-Class offers something very different to what we’ve seen before.
