Although Frank-furt is famous for its sausages, there wasn’t a ‘banger’ in sight this week when car brands from all over the world arrived to display their dishy new models.

The 66th International Motor Show kicked off against a background of the most stunning productions and stands that seem to be getting more outrageously extravagant every year. 

Alongside the glamour of the crazy concepts, beautiful models and lottery cars on display, the show gives a good indication of the everyday cars we’ll be seeing in showrooms and on our roads over the coming year.

One of the most hotly-anticipated reveals was the new Opel Astra which, along with a sharp new design, will come with some new stand-out features such as the ground-breaking new ‘Onstar’ technology system, and back-health-promoting wellness seats. 

A massive seller here anyway, it’s now a more complete package with features that rival the premium class, and is sure to shake up the C-segment when it arrives here at the end of October.
