LUXURY CARS

Volvo V60: Wagon fans can look forward to a handsome new option this year in the form of the 2019 Volvo V60. It debuts in Geneva and will reach showrooms later this year, at which point it will be joined by a new S60 sedan. The V60 is a dead-ringer for the Volvo V90, which is no bad thing, but it's more than half a foot shorter with nearly three inches chopped between the wheels. It will arrive with two powertrain options and be sourced from Volvo's plant in Torslanda, Sweden.

Audi A6: One of the most anticipated reveals of the Geneva show is Audi's new A6. The German firm has already shown us the design but we're eager for a closer look. While the Audi mid-sizer has always been handsome, the latest generation has a wide, powerful stance that really ups the aggression, and dynamic performance should be up too thanks to a lighter and stiffer platform.

2019 Jaguar I-Pace

Jaguar I-Pace: Jaguar has managed to beat many of its bigger rivals in bringing an electric car to the market. The vehicle is the I-Pace electric SUV, which Jaguar will be showing for the first time in production trim at next week's Geneva show. The I-Pace will arrive in showrooms later this year boasting a 240-mile range from its 90-kilowatt-hour battery, and a combined output of 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque from two electric motors.

Lexus UX: The Lexus UX concept unveiled at the 2016 Paris auto show is about to spawn its production cousin. We're expecting the UX to be twinned with the Toyota C-HR, which is similar in size to the UX concept car. Rivals will include the Audi Q3, BMW X1, Lincoln MKC and Mercedes-Benz GLA. Lexus hasn't announced the vehicle for the United States but we know the automaker has reserved the UX 250 and UX 250h model designations here.

Volkswagen ID Vizzion concept: Volkswagen will reveal the fourth member of its ID family of electric concept cars in Geneva. The concept is described as a full-size premium sedan, which could indicate that we're looking at a very early preview of the next-generation Phaeton. VW's flagship is set to return towards the end of the decade as an electric car. Interestingly, the ID Vizzion is also fully automated. In fact, it doesn't even have a steering wheel.

Mercedes-Benz EQC: We'll see quite the number of production electric cars from the major automakers. Mercedes will unveil the first electric car from its recently established EQ sub-brand for electrified models, widely thought to be the EQC small electric SUV. Rival luxury brands Audi and Jaguar will also present their first volume electric cars in Geneva. On Audi's stand will be the e-tron SUV while over at Jaguar will sit the I-Pace SUV, detailed above. Both models are due on sale in 2018 while the Mercedes EQC is only due on sale in 2019.

Mercedes-AMG G63: If you prefer your SUVs to be a little more old-school, AMG will have a treat for you. The Affalterbach tuner will present its first take on Mercedes' redesigned G-Class. The G-Class is unique in the Mercedes lineup in that half of all models sold are from AMG, with the V-8-powered G63 being the most popular. For the new generation, there's a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 with 577 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque.

HK GT concept: Chinese electric car startup Hybrid Kinetic will use the Geneva show to present a concept previewing a potential grand touring coupe.
