The newest hybrid SUV concept to emerge from Ingolstadt is a high-riding, five-door off-roader with similar design cues to Audi's Allroad Shooting Brake car from Detroit. With styling heavily influenced by the new TT, the Q4 is powered by a plug-in petrol-electric hybrid powertrain.

Bentley Hybrid Concept

A new concept car based on the Mulsanne will preview the latest hybrid powertrain destined for use in Bentley's forthcoming SUV, due in 2017. The Hybrid Concept offers a 25 percent increase in power and a 70 percent reduction in CO2 emissions compared to a standard Mulsanne.

A high-performance version of Citroën's existing China-only DS 5LS saloon, the DS 5LS R features more muscular styling and distinctive paintwork. Power comes from a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 300bhp.

Citroën DS SUV

The French firm's new luxury DS model will be revealed in Beijing, and could represent the final production form of Citroën's long-awaited Wild Rubis SUV. If that's true, the new model is expected to enter production later this year, badged as the Citroën DS X7. It would sit alongside the firm's existing DS models, including the DS4 and DS5.

Hyundai ix25

Hyundai's new compact SUV is based on the current i20, and is part of a joint venture between BAIC and Hyundai. While it's only planned to be sold in China at the moment, the global booming compact SUV market could lead to this becoming a new global car.

Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge

The F1-inspired Q50 Eau Rouge concept car has been a regular visitor to recent motor shows, and we now know Infiniti is running a feasibility study to see if it could become a production reality. Current F1 champion Sebastian Vettel has been testing the car in his role as Infiniti's director of performance. Power comes from the same twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V6 engine as the Nissan GT-R.

Lexus NX SUV

Based on the firm's LF-NX concept car from last year, the NX is Lexus's new crossover, and will be seen in final production-ready form for the first time in Beijing. Power is likely to come from an adapted version of the American market Lexus ES300h sedan's Hybrid Synergy Drive system. That means the NX should have a 156bhp 2.5-litre petrol engine in conjunction with an electric motor.

Mercedes-Benz Concept Coupé SUV

The Concept Coupé SUV previews the new MLC – Mercedes' answer to the new BMW X6. Featuring more aggressive styling than the standard car, the five-door MLC is claimed to have "very dynamic handling", with an engine range featuring V6 petrol and diesel engines as well as a new hybrid.

MG SUV

The long-promised MG SUV is expected to be seen in final production-ready form in Beijing, following on from the firm's CS concept at Shanghai last year. The new car is understood to be based on the same platform as the MG 5 hatch’ and the MG 6 notchback, with power coming from MG's new range of modern GDI engines.

MG 5 coupé

We've known for some time that a coupé version of the MG 5 was in development, with sales targeted specifically at the Chinese market. Joining the current hatchback and sedan models, the new coupé would likely take the hatchback's 1.5-litre engine for power, although local reports suggest the MG 6's 1.8-litre turbocharged unit could also be fitted.

Peugeot Exalt concept

The Exalt is Peugeot's vision of a new luxurious saloon, and uses the same bare-metal bodywork as the Onyx concept of 2012. Featuring bare steel, wool fabric and leather, the Exalt uses the same 1.6-litre THP engine as the RCZ R, coupled to an electric motor.

Porsche Cayman/Boxster GTS

post-9756-0-68583400-1397466575.jpg

Sales of Porsche's two new GTS flagship models get underway next month, with each featuring more power, revised suspension and plenty more kit than standard models. The cars' 3.4-litre flat-six engine now complies with stricter Euro 6 emissions regulations, and has 355bhp in Cayman GTS form, and 325bhp in the Boxster GTS.

To me, the biggest news is the Ciaz sedan production version unveil. I am pretty sure India will get the SAME Car with Right-hand drive version and a diesel motor as well.

Apart from that, the Audi, Merc SUV concepts are good. Also, another big one is the Hyundai ix25 compact SUV concept which may or may not come here. fingers crossed :) Good thread this!

Same here bro. I am too waiting for the launch of this sedan. I think that this car will be a show stopper for Indian auto-market. This car will be set for sale with automatic transmission which is in trend now a days in the commercial vehicles. It is being expected that Maruti Suzuki will only launch the diesel format of Ciaz and will be available with the 1.3-litre Multijet engine (DDiS in Maruti speak) with 90 PS of power on tap. The Maruti product SX4 is not making any effective sales in the market but positive results is being expected with this sedan.
