As one of the major auto shows in Europe, the Paris Motor Show plays host to many new car launches. But some of the makers do not export to the U.S., and those that do often show European-only new models. But new cars on their way to the U.S. come from the likes of BMW, Porsche, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz.

We found an impressive amount of luxury and tech in this set of six new cars. Most are updates to existing vehicles, such as the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz CLS, and Volvo V60. Then there is the special-edition Porsche 911 Speedster and the all new Audi A7.

The Paris launch of these cars gives us a preview of good things to come in the U.S.
