2015′s Geneva show has just closed, and a lot took place.

The Volkswagen Passat took Car of the Year, beating the Citroën C4 Cactus, Ford Mondeo, Mercedes-Benz C Class, Nissan Qashqai and Renault Twingo to the prize.

“It is truly impressive that Volkswagen managed to win the title for the third time in six years,” said Hakan Matson, chair of the judging panel and car expert at the Swedish business newspaper Dagens Industri.

“The Passat has many strong points, including its design, overall quality, safety, spacious interior, and several useful innovations such as the Trailer Assist.”

900 cars appeared at the show, including many concept vehicles. A real emphasis on sustainability is appearing; a leaflet detailed all the ‘Green’ cars exhibited at the Show.

It lists all the models on display which emit no more than 95 grams of CO2 per kilometre. This figure complies with the average emission level due to be imposed by the European Union on all new cars from 2021.

It’s a hint at the future of European motoring. From this, the chances are that greener vehicles are only going to become more and more affordable and common across the EU.

TAG Heuer
The show also celebrated TAG Heuer’s contribution to the world of motorsport. 2015 marks 30 years of the brand’s partnership with McLaren, the longest collaboration between a watch brand and a Formula 1 team. TAG will also be involved in Le Mans this year with Nissan.
