The world's automakers have converged upon Geneva to display their latest sheetmetal at the 74th International Motor Show, Palexpo-Geneva -- more simply known as the 2004 Geneva Motor Show. From economical little city cars to full-size coupes and wagons, as well as futuristic concepts that swim, drive, and even fly, Geneva is like the United Nations of international auto shows, a venue where global manufacturers peacefully meet while attempting to demonstrate their automotive prowess over their corporate competitors.

As a deterrent to any type of journalista coup, show models everywhere sported dangerously pointed high heels said to be the height of Italian fashion; armed with such weaponry, these lovely ambassadors kept visiting delegates properly subdued.

Motor Trend's coverage of the show is now complete with more than 50 vehicles on the following pages.
