Toyota i-TRIL concept unveiled at Geneva

Unveiled at the 2017 Geneva motor show, the Toyota i-TRIL concept takes a step into the not-so-distant future, with its eco-friendly mobility vehicle. A cross between a trike and the Japanese brand's i-Road concept, the city car features two wheels placed close together at the rear, at just 600mm, and two wheels even further apart at the front with a 1200mm track.

2018 Lexus LS500h revealed

The Lexus LS500h, the second variant in the fifth-generation LS range, has been unveiled at the 2017 Geneva motor show. Unsurprisingly, the LS500h shares its hybrid drivetrain with the closely related LC500h coupe. Both models feature a new Multi-Stage Hybrid drivetrain with 264kW of total system power that uses a traditional automatic transmission instead of the company's usual e-CVT setup.

The current and fourth-generation Pajero, which has been around since 2006, is still being sold globally, due to the ongoing challenge of its replacement meeting much stricter emission requirements than ever before.

Volvo ute could appear after 2020

The story was spurred on by images of a long-wheelbase version of the Volvo XC90 with weight over the rear axle of the car that was seen in Europe. It was, the internet speculated, the Chinese-owned Swedish brand's competitor to the Mercedes-Benz X-Class ute.

2017 Subaru XV crossover revealed

The new-generation Subaru XV small crossover has been revealed in Geneva ahead of its Australian launch around the middle of 2017. Subaru's new XV is obviously based on the latest Impreza hatch, and thus sports almost entirely new parts over its predecessor, including the company's new modular platform.
