The extended recession in Europe sharpened the focus on affordable cars at the Geneva Motor Show. Although exotic brands like Ferrari and Lamborghini dazzled the public with their new flagship sports cars, most other manufacturers were intent on serving the average European consumer. Renault revealed the stylish Captur crossover with multi-tone color schemes. Nearby, Peugeot's new 2008 crossover will compete directly against the Renault. Honda's Civic Tourer concept was a sleek potential addition to the Civic lineup. Ford showed multiple variants of its Tourneo minivan model range. Mercedes brought its entry-level CLA sedan and hatchback, which should attract younger customers to its showrooms everywhere. Volkswagen had its entire Golf range available at the show, including the GTI, GTD, and wagon (estate). The BMW stand showcased the new 3-Series Gran Turismo, a fastback variant of its best-selling model range. Alfa Romeo thrilled the crowd with the eagerly anticipated mid-engined 4C coupe. Lamborghini's Veneno and the Ferrari LaFerrari represent the pinnacle of sports car technology, but the McLaren P1 is a contender as well. So despite the economic chill, the Geneva Motor Show retains its status among the premier auto shows in Europe.
