Smart's Forstars concept almost sounds like a normal car. It's got a production-ready electric power train from the Brabus Fortwo electric drive and its looks aren't that much weirder than a Scion/Toyota iQ. However, things get weird when the automaker starts talking about modding an LCD projector into the hood...

Imagine if the Mitsubishi Eclipse didn't grow into a bloated mess and was still relevant today. You'd have something like the Peugeot RCZ R, a 260-horsepower, front-wheel-drive sports coupe that looks absolutely amazing in bronze and matte black.

A bit further up the Peugeot performance ladder is the Onyx a 700-horsepower, turbodiesel supercar that gets a staggering 118 miles per gallon. Yep, I'll believe that when I see it.

BMW's Concept Active Tourer is either a preview of an upcoming 1-series GT that slots between the 1 and 3 series wagons or it's a stepping stone to an inexpensive front-wheel-drive BMW model based on Mini underpinnings. Either way, this plug-in hybrid concept has an interesting all-wheel-drive power-train that's worth exploring.

BMW's i8 concept makes a return appearance at the Paris show. You can be sure that its sibling, the i3, wasn't too far away.

Toyota's new Auris was on display in a major way at the automaker's booth, showing up in both conventional and hybrid trims. At one point, the word was that this car could replace the Matrix in Toyota's U.S. lineup, but those rumors have been put to rest by Toyota itself.
