Citroen’s new car looks pretty impressive with its distinctive orange painting and large lazang. Compared to earlier Cactus: C3 and C4, this is considered to be more like a production version.
Citroen revealed that the car is also available as a replacement for the C3 Picassa that will be available this year.
The car is based on the Vauxhall Crossland X platform but is more like an SUV than the MPV because Citroen designers have removed the flexible rear seats and adjusted the luggage compartment.
Vanda Electrics Dendrobium
While the two models above offer luxury and convenience, the Dendrobium from Singapore’s Vanda Electrics makes the mark of sporty and dynamic looks.
The lowered chassis makes Dendrobium feel the “speed” for the opposite. In addition, the F1 racing suspension system with the large rear wing is also impressive details.
The interior of the car also attracted much attention when applying the edge design and minimalist. Leather seats are made by Scottish Bridge of Weir Leather Company.
Although only using electric motors, Dendrobium has the ability to accelerate not inferior to other supercars when accelerating from 0-96 km / h in 2.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 322 km / h.

It seems the theme of this year’s show is clean energy vehicles. Evidence is the appearance of the electric concept, powered by hydrogen.
The Hyundai FE Fuel Cell not only create a fancy look with its thin and compact headlights, large la-zang along with its delicate embossed lines on the body, it is also attracted by hydrogen technology. According to Hyundai, in 2018, the company will introduce a new car using fuel cells inspired by this car.
As one of “the big guys” in the French auto industry, Peugeot marked the return to Geneva with the impressive Instinct.
The elegance and sophistication of the Instinct is reflected in the new light-emitting diode, hybrid drive technology for up to 297 horsepower. It is expected that the drive will be equipped for the SUV 3008 in the near future.
In particular, Peugeot Instinct is equipped with a complete steering system, the steering wheel of the car is removed and it can connect to the cloud or smart control device at home.
One of the names that car enthusiasts expect at the show this year is XAVL. This is considered a model image of the upcoming car of SsangYong.
With a strong, solid appearance, modern technology, this concept is expected to become a serious contender for Kia Sorento and Hyundai Santa Fe when it goes into mass production.
Not only owns a name quite “weird” but the concept of concept from the Japanese car maker Toyota is very “heterosexual”. It owns a three-seater crossover and the ability to tilt the steering wheel. In order to operate the car, the driver interacts with two control buttons similar to a computer mouse or a gamepad, rather than using the steering wheel and the pedal.
Toyota also shares the i-TRIL “driving” in fact is quite interesting. The car feels different not only at high speed but at low speed while traveling in the city.
