Geneva Motor Show 2017

87th International Geneva Motor Show


A recent whistle-stop visit, took: Andrew Bennett (Accountant), Chris Harrison (Service Manager), Gary Snaith (General Sales Manager) and Tony Slack MD, to

Geneva for the biggest event in the European car calender. The Geneva Motor Show or as the locals like to say Salon international de l’automobile, is held at the Geneva Palexpo convention centre and organised by Internationale des Constructeurs d’Automobiles. 


Since the very first show back in 1905, SKODA vehicles have been in residence, with the event now attracting premières from many of the world’s leading manufacturers. 


The 2017 SKODA stand, showcases 15 vehicles with the presentation completely changed several times throughout the show – taking nearly a hundred people the entire night. There’s was sizable gift shop as well as several thematically designed zones for visitors. Put simply, it was a one-of-a-kind world unto itself – once  experienced, its atmosphere we’ll never forget. 


Highlights included the new Kodiaq SUV, Octavia vRS 245, Octavia Scout, and new facelifted Citigo and Rapid, not forgettingn the latest supercars. We also spent time visiting the ISUZU stand with the exciting new look 2017 D-Max 1.9 due for release in April. 


Don’t forget to watch the time-lapse video, where you can go behind the scenes to see how the SKODA stand was built.
