Soberness at the 94th Brussels Motor Show

The terror attacks at Paris last November have influenced normal life in a lot of European countries. The terror threat in Belgium is at Level 3, which means the highest security standards visitors have to apply to. Until now unseen at most European countries but attending events will differ somewhat from the past. There were 11 new car introductions for the Belgian market and one World debut from Toyota with the Verso. Honda had their coming man Stoffel Vandoorne at the Show whilst they introduced their TCR Civic project. In contrary to the past there were only seven concept cars at the Show. A little bit disappointing with the past. But nowadays most manufacturers wait until Geneva in March with their ambitions.
