Auto brands are in a battle for the most popular cars at the Geneva Auto Show. Look at the following cars and find out why they are on the top list.

Aston Martin Valkyrie. The BMW Blog recently reported that the Aston Martin Valkyrie will be using F1 technology, particularly its energy recovery system (ERS). This partnership with F1 also was made to make an on-road race car that is being built to be sold by 2021, reported Pocket Lint.  A limited edition, the Aston Martin Valkyrie will be designed by racing engineer Adrian Newey in partnership with Red Bull Racing.

 

Range Rover Velar. Another looker at the Auto Show was the Range Rover Velar. Sporting the latest revolution in SUV design and looks, the Range Rover Velar already garnered a queue of 40,000 people online wanting this SUV, reported Express. Inside this SUV, is a central touch-screen control panel and a five-engine range to choose from. Leading this range is a 380 bhp, 3-liter petrol engine.

Kia Picanto. Moving on, we have the modest compact car maker Kia with its Kia Picanto. Expected to sell by May, this compact will be sold as a five-door with roomier space inside and a bigger 255-liter boot. Also, new petrol engines with lower emissions at 89 g per kilometer and Autonomous Emergency Braking for the first time.

 

Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo. Not wanting to be beaten by the looks department, the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo was also exhibited at the Geneva Auto Show with a new and longer roof and a longer boot. The Panamera has the same engines as the regular Panamera, which means V8 turbo petrol engines and a diesel one. The in-car screen is provided as well.

Rolls Royce Ghost. Lastly, a motor show can't go without the over-the-top models. One exhibitor displayed his Rolls Royce Ghost encrusted with 1,000 diamonds. Another Zenvo TS1 GT buyer will have his car cabin primarily outfitted with rhodium, which if you're not aware, is the most expensive metal in the world.

And that's about it for the most popular cars in the most sought after auto event, the Geneva Auto Show! Keep posted for the latest car news update.
