Where were all the affordable cars at the Geneva motor show? I say that having scoured the show floor for new models that Autocar readers might think about as their next purchase.

In fact, I can’t remember a major auto show with so few all-new city cars, superminis, family hatches, estates or even SUVs.

By my reckoning there were about seven affordable new models on display, plus a handful of pricier cars that are still within the man in the street's budget.

I’d count the Kia Ceed and its Sportswagon estate version in the affordable bracket, along with the Citroen Berlingo Multispace, Honda CRV, Hyundai Santa Fe and Kona EV (alongside the Nexo hydrogen fuel cell production car), Lexus UX, Mercedes A-Class, Peugeot 508, and Toyota Auris – so good work by those manufacturers.

At a higher price level, the Audi A6, BMW X4, Jaguar I-Pace and Volvo V60 also count as ‘affordable’.
