2017 Geneva motor show: Epic from-the-show-floor experience

If you don't already know, Geneva is in Switzerland.

Luckily, this year's 2017 Geneva motor show (on until March 19) was my first, and it was so good, I didn't want anyone to miss out...

Screw your stupid hidden door handles!

What's with the disappearing rear door handles? Modern car designers seem to be getting more and more enamoured with the idea that making the rear doors of cars appear as though they're missing entrance levers is in some way sleek, modern or - God forbid - cool.
