GM brand may join Honda, Nissan and Mitsubishi on the sidelines
21 April 2009

Chevrolet is reviewing its participation in this year's Frankfurt motor show, and may skip the event in order to save money.

A spokesman denied that a decision had already been made to miss the show, saying: "It remains a case of 'watch this space and see what happens'.

"It may be prudent to miss the show, as we've not got anything major coming up to launch and we want to spend as much as we can on the Spark launch in 2010, but no decision has been made."

So far this year, Chevrolet's European sales are down 17.6 per cent.

If Chevrolet decides to miss the show, it will join Honda, Nissan and Mitsubishi in the list of car makers that have officially announced they won't have a stand at Frankfurt.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
