Top 10 Most Anticipated 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show Debuts


Quote:
The 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show is next week and there’s a lot to be excited about.

Dozens of world premieres and debuts will take place in Germany, but some are more exciting than others. Best of all, not all the automakers have spilled details on what they’re bringing, so we can expect some surprises once the show floor opens to the media.

For now, here’s AutoGuide.com‘s pick of the top 10 most anticipated debuts from the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Although some cars have already been exposed or revealed online, we’re still excited to see them in person once the automakers lift those pesky car covers.
See the Top 10 Most Anticipated 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show Debuts at AutoGuide.com.

So many "crossovers" and "Sorta sports vans" out there now. It seems everyone is getting in that market. A lot of people want a sports car but need a minivan to carry the kids and get neither. Or both? Not sure.

But this has to effect Lotus' plans for such a vehicle.

Anyone can make something complicated. It takes genius to make it simple. Einstein.

Which would translate to spring deliveries I'm guessing

These sporty smaller SUVs (my Range Rover Evoque Coupe for example) are a best of both worlds philosophy. Just did a 2600 mile trip to Florida (1300 mile/17-18hrs driving) non stop each way and had room for luggage and 3 dogs at the same time it was true fun to drive , averaged 24mpg at 80mph, inspired confidence driving thru flash flood warnings in southern NJ due to excellent AWD system.
BTW this car was the replacement for the wife's 2012 Jag XK that was totalled by a psycho pickup truck. Now its just a taller more practical sporty coupe. Also it just looks awesome and no way you'll mistake it for anything else out there (well maybe a RR Sport) and that adds to the exclusivity.

I concur, I've had a 2012 Evoque fully optioned coupe for the last few years and have had no problems with it; can't say the same with my other Land Rover experience.
