The Geneva motor show is arguably the year's most important motor show, taking place in the neutral confines of Switzerland where no one nation hogs the limelight.

Hosted at the Palexpo Arena next to the city's airport, the Geneva International Motor Show is open to the public from 9-19 March 2017, with two press and trade days on 7-8 March.

Here we round up all the new cars, world debuts and launches expected this spring - and we'll be adding plenty more, as manufacturers confirm their wares in the build-up to March. Think of it as a handy one-stop shop for the Geneva auto show.

So flick through the photo gallery above and read on for our preview guide of what to expect at the motor show in our A-Z listing below.
