After a significant decline last year, 2010's Leipzig motor show AMI attracts
more exhibitors again. Many companies came back, even some who turned their
backs to the event a few years ago - before the economical downturn. Land
Rover for example. The Ranger Rover models are displayed in Startech trim
which hints to a close collaboration of Brabus' sub label Startech and
the British off road vehicle makers.
Even BMW belongs to those companies that did not attend last year - although
they produce the 3-Series and the X1 at a neighbouring plot. This time they
present the new 5-series Touring to the public for the very first time. Volkswagen
have unveiled the new Touran.
It bases on the old platform, but changes are significant. Sister company Audi
showcase the overworked TT model, as a world premiere too, however it only has
got some cosmetic changes. Lexus is absent this year. This might be caused by
the fact that interest in the cars was low.
Toyota, on the other hand, is there. As every year, we are going to try hard to
take the best motor show pics possible. Outcomes will be presented in two galleries
next month. Meanwhile, as a foretaste of what is to come, we link to the previous
collections at the right column!
