Here are two more great looking specimens found amongst the stands at this year's Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland. Neither of them are dead certain to be found in showrooms within the next 24 months, but still have interesting designs and ideas.

Geneva unveils Captur and IBX crossovers

Firstly, we have the Renault Captur concept. This is a compact crossover vehicle, which is loosely based on a model that may be introduced by 2013, although nothing is certain. It will be placed in the range in between the Clio and the Megane, and will feature a hard-top convertible roof. According to the French car firm, it can either be "a coupe or a convertible, an urban vehicle to an off-roader." Basically about a dozen different car designs rolled into one.
Also on show was the IBX Concept from Spanish car manufacturer, Seat. Again, it's another crossover vehicle, something which every car maker is trying, as they aim to fill every gap in the market. The IBX is created by Lue Donckerwolke, a name which may mean little to you, but it is actually the ex-design chief from a certain Lamboghini firm. The IBX is expected to be a hybrid, and any production model would have 5-doors, despite this one only having three. Everything remains up in the air though, as they have not even decided whether it'll be powered by diesel or petrol!
