The Audi A1, new BMW 3 Series, and Kia Proceed, among others, will make their debut in Paris next month.

The most important autumn fair is the 2018 Paris Motor Show (or, Mondial de l'Automobile). It takes place from October 2nd to October 14th, and is typically home to some of the best and brightest Europe has to offer. But things have seemingly taken a downturn as a number of manufacturers have decided to skip 2018's showing.

Nevertheless, there are still plenty of vehicles that will be shown this year in Paris that are scheduled to hit the market sometime in 2018 or 2019. Audi, BMW, Peugeot, Lexus, and others will all be represented in the City of Lights. Here's what to expect from the Paris Motor Show when doors open next month.
