Frankfurt Motor Show 2019: all the cars and all the news

Full round-up of the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. All the biggest news with the best pictures and videos

What is the Frankfurt Motor Show?

Among many things, the Frankfurt Motor Show is an opportunity. An opportunity to indulge yourself in large quantities of currywurst, apple wine, and the most important new metal of the moment. Operating on an alternating two-year cycle with the Paris Motor Show, the IAA Frankfurt show is one of the biggest dates on the automotive calendar.

Naturally, patriotism is fuelled to extreme levels with marques such as Mercedes, Audi and BMW pulling out all the stops to ensure an unforgettable display. Last time around, just under a million people visited the show, and with all the cars shown on page one of this guide, don’t be surprised if 2019 is just as popular.


The 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show will open to the press on the 10 September 2019, so be sure to bookmark this page and tune into our social media feeds on the 10th so you don’t miss any of the action. There’s a second press day on Tuesday 11th and then the global automotive media pack up their laptops and vacate the show.

Two trade days kick off on the 12th and two days later (14 September 2019) the 230,000 square metre exhibition centre opens to the public, for them to drool over the impressive collection of cars. Once more, if you didn’t manage to catch all the action in one day, the show runs until the 22 September, so there is a full week for you to enjoy the automotive nectar.

Opening hours

The opening times for the public days are 9am to 7pm, leaving plenty of time to enjoy everything on show. 


The event is held at the Trade fair grounds, Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage 1, D-60327 Frankfurt/Main, Germany.  


For members of the public who are either a child under the age of seven, persons with a disability ID (including one accompanying adult), and persons in wheelchairs (also including an accompanying person), entrance is completely free.
