► Our Geneva motor show preview
► A-Z of all the new cars, debuts
► What to look forward to at GIMS 2019
The 2019 Geneva motor show is just over a week away - and this year's expo is shaping up nicely with 150 world and European debuts promised. In this Geneva show preview we'll guide you through the most important new cars and launches you need to know about, covering everything from the new Renault Clio supermini and Mazda CX-4 to Honda's first electric car, a new Aston Martin Lagonda SUV and the newly open-topped Porsche 911.
Officially called the Geneva International Motor Show (or GIMS, for short), the Swiss show is traditionally held on neutral ground at the Palexpo Arena next to Geneva airport. This makes it an ideal stop-off for petrolheads who may be decamping to the Alps for a spot of spring skiing or passing through Switzerland on business. It's also ideal for a day trip from the UK, with the show halls just 10 minutes from the airport arrivals hall.
The Geneva auto show takes place from 7-17 March 2019, and we list ticket prices, opening hours and other practical information in our handy guide below. We'll be there on 5-6 March covering the international press days, so come back for our full package of news, reviews, intel and videos live from the show floor.
Stay tuned for more new cars, debuts and launches in our Geneva motor show preview guide.
