Auto Shows: Where New Cars are Born


Above: Recent models as they debuted at their respective auto shows

Visiting an auto show is a great way for car shoppers to see and compare all the models they may be considering. It’s also a great way for enthusiasts to get a hands-on look at all the latest and greatest cars the market has to offer.

But there are a handful of auto shows around the world that attract attention from far beyond the local news broadcast. The car you’re driving today was most likely unveiled to the world at one of these shows.

And if your next car has already been revealed, this is where you’ll find it.

Geneva Motor Show

Unlike the Frankfurt and Paris salons, the Geneva Auto Show takes place in a land without a major automaker. With no manufacturers to dominate the scene, the Geneva Auto Show feels more like a United Nations mixer.
