The latest new metal from the world's best automakers

In Europe, there's the biennial Frankfurt or Paris shows. In America, it's Detroit, Los Angeles or New York. But in Asia, the world's largest new car market, the biggest annual new car show is the Chinese auto show, which toggles between the country's two largest cities, Shanghai and this year in the capital city of Beijing. Over the past five years, it has comprehensively eclipsed the ailing Tokyo show as Asia's crown motor show jewel.Located at the China International Exhibition Centre an hour outside of Beijing, the show offers plenty of space for the world's best brands to showcase their wares. Just how much space might surprise you — there's nine times more floor space than Detroit's cramped Cobo Hall.Among the dozens of new car introductions, here is my top 10 from this year's show.
