As always, SUVs are all the rage at the Paris Motor Show and this year 2016 is no exception. Thus, manufacturers have unveiled their new creations, the most surprising: only one urban model among the novelties of this year!
Czech firm Skoda has revealed the world premiere of its very first large crossover, the Kodiaq. With its 4.70 m length, this model can carry up to 7 passengers. It features a DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The brand also intends to enter the American market with this new product.
Unlike the Kodiaq, the all-new Peugeot 5008 does not have an automatic transmission or all-wheel drive. On the other hand, it is equipped with independent and sliding seats in the second row and two pull-out trunk seats. It gains a few liters of volume and a fairly low loading threshold.
Seat Ateca Xperience
Already unveiled during the Geneva Motor Show in March, the Seat Ateca Xperience with its adventurous look offers distinctive body elements.
LIV-2 from Ssangyong
The Ssangyong brand is back on track with this new concept car named LIV-2.
CH-R from Toyota
The CH-R is Toyota’s new hybrid SUV with a dynamic profile similar to a BMW X4. It is 4.36 m long and has a base price of 22,900 euros.
If you are looking for a top-of-the-line model, Renault presents Koleos. Measuring only 4.67 m, this model has only 5 seats.
This second generation Audi Q5 was inspired by the Q2 and Q7 for its look. However, it incorporates premium technological gear.
BMW’s X2 comes in the form of a show car that reveals a significant roof drop. It follows the trend of SUV coupes by having the silhouette of an X1 but in a truncated mode.
Still riding the wave of SUV coupes, the Mercedes GLC has the same profile. However, its 43 AMG engine will give it a most exceptional power.
Land Rover Discovery
The new Land Rover Discovery looks more like a 4×4 than an SUV. Its lines are comparable to those of the recent Discovery Sport with the stepped roof. However, it is less rustic and square than the latter.
The Kia Soul is the only urban SUV model at the Paris Motor Show. This novelty is provided with a rather discreet facelift.
