Detroit Motor Show 2010 (NAIAS) Preview

Sun, 10 Jan 2010 00:00:00 -0800

The North American International Auto Show kicks off this week.

Tomorrow (Monday 11th January 2010) sees the opening day of the 2010 Detroit Motor Show (North American International Auto Show), the first major car show of the season, so we thought we ought to do a quick round-up of some of the cars you’re likely to see.

One of the big domestic showings will be the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, the super-quick coupe version of Cadillac’s super saloon. With 556bhp and 0-60mph in just 3.9 seconds this is one US domestic product that has the measure – certainly in performance terns – of the best from the Germans and even our own Jaguar XFR.

Also on the quick-car front is the Buick Regal GS, a Buick version of our own Vauxhall Insignia VXR. Unfortunately GM has decided that the Regal GS will have to do with a dialled-up version of the four-pot in the regular Regal, but at least it gives Buick a credible performance model.

Another meaty monster is the new 5.0 litre Mustang GT, which promises to deliver performance commensurate with its muscle car looks. Also up for showing – at the other extreme – is the MINI Beachcomber Concept which as close as we’re going to get to seeing the MINI Countryman.

There’s also the Chevrolet Aveo RS which previews the next generation Aveo and looks a credible US version of a hot hatch. There will of course be more than a smattering of Eco cars on offer, such as the Electric Fiat 500, the Volvo C30 BEV and BMW’s 1-Series Electric.

Just a taste of what’s on offer, but there will be plenty more besides. We’ll keep you up to date with all that’s going on, and all our 2010 Detroit Motor Show stories will be readily available in one place.
