It was a big year for SUVs at this year’s Paris Motor Show.

Automakers used this year’s show to give consumers an early glimpse of next-generation SUV models, as well as visions for future SUV designs. 

Scroll down for a closer look at the most impressive SUVs and SUV concepts on display:

1. BMW showed off its stunning X2 concept. The concept comes with interesting features like massive exhaust pipes and blue X’s in the headlights. We’ll have to wait to see how many of those elements make it to the production vehicle.
BMW is aiming to launch the X2 by spring 2018. We expect the price will fall somewhere between the $33,000 X1 and $39,000 X3.

You can get a closer look at the X2 here.

2. Audi unveiled the next generation of its luxury mid-size crossover, the Q5, and it’s 200 pounds lighter than its predecessor. It also has a slightly larger wheelbase that increases legroom for those in the back. It’s slated to first roll out in Europe in 2017. The US will see it by summer 2017, but pricing hasn’t yet been released.
