Here's our pick of the best cars from the Frankfurt motor show.
Alfa Romeo Giulia - Andrew Frankel
Easy choice really: visually at least this car is pitch perfect in both proportion and detail, a seemingly better than worthy successor to the fabled original Giulia. It seems also to have the right range of powertrains to be successful both here and, crucially, on its return to the US. But too many Alfas have looked better than they drove: this car’s most important test is yet to be passed.
Renault Megane - Jim Holder
The design led reboot of Renault is almost complete, and the reborn Megane added quality and technology to a more grown up but still appealing shape. It may be an uphill struggle selling against Golf et al - but it deserves success.
Honda Project 2&4 - Mark Tisshaw
The Project 2&4’s designer Martin Petersson is confident Honda will build his extraordinary creation if enough people react positively and write nice things. Honda, if you’re reading this: make it, make it now, and we’ll see the finished version in time for the 2017 Frankfurt motor show. Or sooner if you’d be so kind. Thank you.
Peugeot Fractal - Tom Webster
The Fractal was tucked away in a corner of the Peugeot stand, but it arguably deserved a more prominent position. It previews the look of the company’s future interiors, and is all wrapped up in a funky looking electric car that boasts 335bhp and a 0-62mph time of 6.8sec. A range of 280 miles is decent, too.
