Range Rover Evoque Convertible concept – We can’t see this ever being made into a production vehicle, but top marks to Land Rover for bringing something this radical to the auto show circuit. The Evoque has earned a ton of awards since its release, so it’s no surprise Land Rover is exploring further possibilities with the vehicle.


Nissan Invitation concept – Compact cars aren’t going away anytime soon, so it’s refreshing to see automakers like Nissan designing concepts like the Invitation. It proves small cars don’t have to be boring – fingers crossed that when this concept does go into production, the styling isn’t changed too much.


Lamborghini Aventador J concept – This one-off vehicle is a true open-top vehicle, with no roof or windshield to speak of. It gets a 700-horsepower engine and the entire vehicle weighs in at a relatively light 1575 kg. Really, we like this vehicle because it’s extremely fast.

Toyota FT-Bh concept – Toyota’s latest hybrid concept (and there are a lot of ‘em!) weighs in at a dainty 800 kg, and has a coefficient of drag of 0.235. As you could probably guess, this Prius-esque vehicle is aimed at fuel economy on an extreme scale. And hey, it looks pretty neat to boot.


Opel Astra OPC – The Saturn Astra, which was based on the Opel model, was only in North America for a short time, but not because it was a bad vehicle. The Astra is still going strong in Europe, and the OPC (Opel Performance Centre) model makes us wish it was still being produced for Canada. With a 280-horsepower engine and top speed of 250 km/h, it’s the fastest production Astra ever. Not too shabby at all.


Citroën Tubik concept – Here’s what we picture Neo driving in the Matrix if him and Trinity had four kids. Citroën says the Tubik aims to make car journeys in the future fun (though it doesn’t exactly say how). Regardless, this is one of the meanest-looking sort-of-minivans we’ve ever seen, so colour us intrigued.


Infiniti Emerg-E – The term “mid-engine sports car” always causes our heart to skip a beat, and so it has with the introduction of the mid-engine Emerg-E concept, despite the silly spelling of its name. This is Infiniti’s attempt at a halo car, and the electric Emerg-E sounds (and looks) on a computer screen like it fits the bill.

Volkswagen Amarok Canyon – This is a pickup truck for the extrovert who loves the outdoors. This concept version of the Amarok is larger than the production model, and adds features such as retractable running boards and bed cutouts for two kayaks. The body was also raised by 40 mm for extra offroading capability. Now we just need this thing to come to A) be put into production and B) exported to Canada!


Honda EV-STER concept – It’s difficult to be unimpressed by an all-electric, two-seat, rear-wheel drive convertible that accelerates from 0 – 60 km/h in an impressive 5.0 seconds. Automakers are forever looking to balance fuel efficiency with sportiness, and the EV-STER is the latest concept that aims to hit that perfect balance.


Volvo V40 – We love Volvo wagons – so sue us. The V40 is a sibling to the compact C30 hatchback, and it’s the smallest V-range model currently in Volvo’s lineup. The automaker promises plenty of high-tech features, a true luxury experience, and of course, one of the most competitive lists of safety features in the automotive world.
