There was plenty of action on the first day of the 2017 Geneva auto show with numerous reveals from both the mainstream makes as well as the exotics. One of the early stars was Honda’s Civic Type R, which is due in showrooms this spring.

Another sporty addition in Geneva was the updated Porsche 911 GT3. As expected, the car is equipped with a manual transmission. The dual-clutch PDK is still standard, though.

Likely to draw some of the biggest crowds is Volvo’s redesigned XC60. The XC60 is the Swedish marque’s most popular model, accounting for around 30 percent of its sales.
