Aston Martin surprised audiences at this week's 2019 Geneva International Motor Show with the reveal of not one but two mid-engine cars. One of them previews the next-generation Vanquish, which Aston Martin will offer as a rival to the Ferrari F8 Tributo and McLaren 720S.

Alfa Romeo previewed a crossover SUV smaller than the Stelvio with the Tonale concept. The production version is expected in late 2020 or early the following year and will go up against the Mercedes-Benz GLA, BMW X1/X2, and Audi Q3.

Legendary German sports car tuner and manufacturer Ruf used the Geneva show to roll out its latest GT based on the 991 Porsche 911. The company also used the show to roll out the first production example of its fourth-generation CTR.
