The upcoming 81st Geneva Motor Show will witness the launch of Suzuki’s Swift S-Concept. As the name suggests the model is based on the Swift hatchback, which was launched in Europe in the autumn of 2010. The new Swift was enjoying some limelight on the back of winning 2011 RJC Car of the Year award. Suzuki’s concept was to develop a jazzy car with excellent performance.
The new Ferrari Four concept has been officially announced and the super car is set for debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The model is said to be the replacement of the 612 Scaglietti and has been styled with combined features from the 458 Italia, California, and 599 GTB Fiorano.
Hyundai has long sweated over their exceptional auto designs, with their new concept car truly embracing their penchant for fluidic sculpture. By combining the latest technology with an urbanized vehicle, Hyundai have shoehorned their brightest ideas into the Curb. By casting aside notions of box-like urban runners, the Curb maintains its own style while showing no apparent shortcomings. The lead designer was quoted as saying that Hyundai wanted an ‘urban tough’ luxury truck.
A 1.6-liter gamma inline-four marks the basis of the Curbs powertrain and an additional turbocharger boosts output to 175HP. The dual-clutch gear system ensures that 50km per liter is achieved in the city, with 60km per liter possible on the highway. 22” Michelin wheels keeps this beast stuck firmly to the road; these wheels are further customised with orange-coloured tread patterns.
As for the advanced technology, we can one day look forward to the Curb treating us to exhaust vents that slide open to display a bike rack, an LCD display that completely replaces rear view mirrors, as well as three-holded A-pillars which improve cornering performance. This Hyundai Concept is unlikely to be in any car dealers until 2015, according to the manufactures. For now, we will simply have to enjoy the glamour shots of the Curb on the showroom floor.
We have known Lotus as one car maker that focuses on bringing out the best in light weight sports cars. The Paris Auto Show package was in fact testimony to Lotus’ plan which stressed on moving towards new concepts.
Mini Cooper has released a few details about its new car, the Paceman, just ahead of the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). The cars are known for being small yet zippy on the busy city roads and the Paceman is no exception.
