    Globalization, it seems, has taken deep root within the automotive industry. The annual Geneva Motor Show, normally an exposition carrying little impact for the U.S. market, was different this year. In addition to European-market metal and the low-volume, high-performance supercars that are the typical focus of the show, the 2017 Geneva Auto Show showcased several models that are important to U.S. buyers. On the pages that follow, listed in alphabetical order, we highlight those models, as well as a handful of the exotics on display in Switzerland.

    Called a concept but looking almost production-ready, the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept translates the current AMG GT’s design ethos to a 4-door, fastback body style complete with a rear hatch. A hybrid powertrain makes more than 800 horsepower, and this all-wheel-drive concept is claimed to accelerate to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds. This could be an answer to the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, no?

    2018 Volvo XC60

    This photo does not depict the Volvo XC90. Rather, this is the redesigned XC60, which uses the same scalable vehicle architecture, Drive-E engines, design ethos, and materials as its larger sibling, but in a smaller 5-passenger package. Volvo also says the new XC60 is one of the safest vehicles it has ever built, and it introduces new Steer Assist technology.
