What Are Cars Going To Look Like In The Future
The automobile industry is a fast paced and progressive one. Whilst many motor aficionados collect vintage and classic cars, it’s always useful to look ahead to the future too. Concept cars are a way to do this. A concept vehicle is a car made to showcase a new style, design or technology.
The first concept car was the 1938 Buick Y-Job and motor shows have since held a long tradition of giving the public a little taste of things to come. Here are a few to look out for over the next twelve months.
Here are some of our picks of amazing concept cars for 2014 / 2015:
Volvo XC Coupe
Volvo have taken a chance and created a concept that looks little like any existing Volvo. Retaining Volvo’s stance on safety, the top, sides and front look very solid and bulky.
BMW have a reputation for subtlety meshed with innovation. The Vision combines both to create an eye catching and smooth concept piece. It is allegedly part of a new 9 Series, and is the pinnacle of luxury.
A concept hatchback, Mazda have catered to the budget conscious and created a stunning car that is small and inexpensive. The alloys, wing mirrors and front fascia are concepts only, meaning that this is near enough what will be seen on production models in the near future.
Honda Civic Type R
Honda Civic concept models are a mainstay of many car shows, but this hatchback is extremely eye catching in the extreme. Smooth, exciting and very sporty, the Type R is much lower to the ground, and sports a large rear spoiler.
Audi continue to impress with this A3 Clubsport Quattro concept model. Five-cylinders build upon an existing Audi A3 sedan, boasting an impressive front fascia and pumped fenders.
Whilst this is only a small taste of what the next year might bring, it’s certainly an exciting time to be in the motor game!
