The next edition of the Tokyo Motor Show will take place from November 23 to December 1, and promises to be a exciting one. With well over a month to its beginning, Mitsubishi started to reveal a little of what is going to bring to this Motor Show, and from what we can see in these teasers, it looks good.

This somewhat ugly creation named AeroSeven was shown for the first time at the SingTel Singapore Grand Prix, and was described as "an exciting new performance concept road car". The announced performance figures are really good, but the design is the only thing that bothers me.

Suzuki premiered its new compact SUV concept, the iV-4, at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Heir to Suzuki’s DNA, this new compact vehicle embodies a new automotive idea, the personal compact SUV. This idea is also promoted by the name iV-4, since "i" stands for “individuality”, “V” means "vehicle”, and “4” for “four wheel-drive”.

Finally, Renault showed the last of 6 concept cars in the design strategy initiated by Laurens van den Acker, called “Life Cycle”. For those who do not remember, we have Love (DeZir), Explore (Captur), Family (R-Space), Work (Frenzy), Play (Twin’Z and Twin’Run) and the last one is Wisdom, represented by the Initiale Paris Concept.
The new S-Class received very positive reviews and Mercedes wants to take advantage of that by presenting the coupe version, creating what Mercedes describes as "an automotive masterpiece", and a "design icon and an expression of modern luxury“ that uses the brand's design philosophy "sensual clarity".
Another concept that had its premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show is the Q30. This car previews the entry into a new segment for the Japanese car manufacturer composed of smaller cars aimed at a younger audience, but till having a premium feel and look.

Seems that Audi had one last surprise for us before the start of the Frankfurt Motor Show. But it is a little disappointing, since the overall shape of this concept looks a lot like the Italdesign Giugiaro Parcour Concept revealed at the beginning of the year, and don't forget that Italdesign was bought by Volkswagen.
This time it's official. What you have here the official and final pictures of the Jaguar C-X17 Sports Crossover Concept that will be at the Frankfurt Motor Show in just a few days. This concept was created with the sole purpose of showing the capabilities of the new advanced aluminum monocoque architecture, codenamed iQ[Al], but there is a good chance this vehicle will be produced.

Volkswagen is bringing to the Frankfurt Motor Show the Golf Sportsvan concept, a car that is close to the production version of the Golf Plus. And it grew a lot, compared to the previous model, but it is smaller than the Estate. The length in comparison to the to Plus increased by 134mm, to 4,338mm.
With its public presentation scheduled for Frankfurt, and a few days of having more information about this concept, today, we get to see new images showing the final look of this crossover. A crossover which is the first vehicle made by the British car manufacturer in this specific segment.

Seems the car teased by Renault two days ago is the Initiale Paris Concept. With this car Renault is previewing the next-generation Espace. This large multi-purpose-vehicle (MPV) was one of the pioneers of this type of cars, and is still a reference to other manufacturers.

With the presentation scheduled for next week, and a few days after the first teaser, you have here the first official image of the vehicle that previews a future crossover of the British brand. It also serves to introduce the new modular aluminum architecture that will underpin several new models coming from Jaguar.

Seems that Renault is going to bring a new concept to the Frankfurt Motor Show. This will be the sixth concept based on Renault's Lifecycle design philosophy (Love, Explore, Family, Work, Play, Wisdom), but it should preview a new model. There are two possibilities. This could be the next-generation Laguna or possibly the Espace.
With the approach of the Frankfurt Motor Show, more and more news keep coming in. This time it'se Mercedes that decided to first show a few teasers, in the form of design sketches, of the upcoming S-Class Coupé Concept. The successor of the CL will be lighter and as a result will be more fuel efficient.

From what I have seen on forums and message boards, this is one of the most anticipated vehicles that will be seen at the Frankfurt Motor Show. What we have here are the first official pictures of the Cactus, a compact crossover that will rival other vehicles such as the Nissan Juke.
A few hours after the first teaser, pictures of the Smart Fourjoy Concept appeared online. Nothing else is known, but we can see it doesn't have any doors, it's an electric vehicle, it has room for four passengers, and it serves to preview the next-generation family of Smart cars.
Mercedes revealed a sketch on their Facebook page teasing the upcoming presentation of the next-generation Smart small city car. In this image we see a four-seater car with no doors that looks to be an evolution of the Smart Forstars and the Smart Forvision concepts revealed in 2012 and 2011, respectively.
Seems that the car teased by Lexus isn't the long awaited RC and RC-F, but instead a new compact crossover concept named the LF-NX. This hybrid vehicle wants to rival such cars like the Range Rover Evoque, BMW X13, Audi Q3, and Mercedes GLA, but production isn't confirmed, and if that ever happens, the design needs to be toned down.

What we have here are the first official pictures of the Audi Sport Quattro Concept that will be shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The bad news is that, in my opinion, it looked a lot better on those sketches revealed some time ago. We will have to wait for some more information, but for now enjoy these four images.
