Beijing to host Auto China 2016
3 December 2015
Auto China has wrapped up for another year, with a number of new cars being
revealed, including many that will be made exclusively for the Chinese market.
Mazda revealed its CX-4 compact SUV, the production version of the Koeru
concept that was shown at last year's Frankfurt show.
Volkswagen showed off its T-Prime SUV concept, which will most likely herald
the replacement for the ageing Touareg.
Infiniti debuted its QX Sport Inspiration concept, which will materialise into
a replacement for either the QX50 or QX70.
And a number of companies created long-wheelbase versions of cars to satisfy
the Chinese demand for LWB variants, including the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz
E-Class, the Audi A4 and the Jaguar XF.
There's now a long time between drinks, with the next major motor show not
happening until the Paris Motor Show, which begins on September 29. For all the

new model in Infiniti's range, possibly the QX70 or QX50.
