2016 Geneva Auto Show: The 9 Cars You Should Know About

Automakers from around the world unveiled several dozen new cars and concepts at this year’s Geneva Auto Show, and here we’ve boiled it down to the nine cars that matter most to car buyers in our country. Many of these new models will be arriving at U.S. dealerships within a matter of months, so start saving fast if you see one you like. Counting down to the most affordable car in the bunch, here are the new cars that will be following us back from the 2016 Geneva Auto Show. 

2017 Maserati Levante

2016 Geneva Auto Show: The 9 Cars You Should Know About

In addition to the recently unveiled Jaguar F-Pace SUV, shoppers looking at the Porsche Cayenne and such will soon have yet another alternative to consider. Maserati’s first SUV will likely start in the mid-$70,000 range when it goes on sale later this year, and offer a choice of 345- or 424-horsepower turbocharged V6 engines.  Read more

2017 Porsche 718 Boxster

2016 Geneva Auto Show: The 9 Cars You Should Know About

The Porsche Boxster will now be known officially as the Porsche 718 Boxster, but that’s hardly the biggest news. Gone are the naturally aspirated flat 6-cylinder engines that have moved every Boxster from the beginning, replaced by turbocharged flat 4-cylinder engines. Change is always scary when it comes to any Porsche, but more often than not everything works out for the better. In this case, the Boxster and Boxster S will both get significantly faster, thanks in part to a much welcome increase in low-end torque.  Read more

2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabrio

2016 Geneva Auto Show: The 9 Cars You Should Know About

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan has taken home our Luxury Car Best Buy Award two years in a row, which is more reason to look forward to the forthcoming coupe and convertible versions. Following the arrival of the coupe in spring, the C-Class Cabrio will start arriving at the end of summer, available in 241-horsepower C300 and 362-horsepower Mercedes-AMG C43 versions.  Read more

2017 Hyundai Ioniq

2016 Geneva Auto Show: The 9 Cars You Should Know About

If you think Toyota went a little too far with the styling of the new Prius, you’ll soon have another mileage-maxing specialist to consider. Hyundai says the Ioniq is the first dedicated model to offer hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure electric powertrain choices, and we wouldn’t be surprised if it shows up later this year with slightly lower prices than its Prius counterparts.  Read more

Opel Mokka X

2016 Geneva Auto Show: The 9 Cars You Should Know About

No, GM’s European brand isn’t making a return to the U.S., but the Opel Mokka X gives us a pretty good look at the 2017 Buick Encore set to make its debut at the 2016 New York Auto Show.  Read more

Subaru XV Concept

2016 Geneva Auto Show: The 9 Cars You Should Know About

This is the third Impreza-based concept Subaru has unveiled in the past several months, ahead of an expected production launch later this year. Essentially a raised and rugged Subaru Impreza hatchback, the next-gen Crosstrek – the XV’s American name – will likely be made available after the sedan and hatchback versions. Details are few at this point, but we expect big design changes, added refinement and of course, standard all-wheel drive for Subaru’s next-gen compact-car lineup.  Read more

Volkswagen T-Cross Breeze Concept

2016 Geneva Auto Show: The 9 Cars You Should Know About

Okay, this concept car isn’t coming to the U.S. or anywhere else, but it gives us a chance to get you up to speed on Volkswagen’s SUV plans. Early next year, VW will finally release a 3-row SUV to take on the likes of the Ford Explorer and Toyota Highlander. Shortly after that we’ll get an all-new Tiguan, better packaged and positioned to compete with the Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue (like the Rogue, the Tiguan will also offer a small, occasional-use third-row seat). A new Touareg is also in the works, as is a subcompact SUV based loosely on the T-Cross Breeze Concept seen here, but without the drop-top.  Read more

2017 Toyota C-HR

2016 Geneva Auto Show: The 9 Cars You Should Know About

In just the past two model years, the fast-growing subcompact SUV segment has added the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, Chevrolet Trax and Jeep Renegade. In Geneva the world got its first look at Toyota’s entry, but in the U.S. we’ll have to wait until 2017 before we can get our hands on it. Uncharacteristically bold styling meets Toyota reputation in a hot segment, a combination that will likely add up to big sales.  Read more

Honda Civic Hatchback

2016 Geneva Auto Show: The 9 Cars You Should Know About

Already our Kelley Blue Book Overall Best Buy for 2016, the Honda Civic lineup is about to add even more practicality. Presented as the Civic Hatchback Prototype in Geneva, this is surely the same sheetmetal we’ll see on the production version scheduled to be unveiled at the New York Auto Show in just a few weeks. Effectively the same car as the award-winning sedan but with a wide-opening hatch instead of a dedicated trunk, the newest member is going to make the Civic family even more attractive.  Read more
