Nissan

Nissan has released the first promotional video for the mildly face lifted Patrol, following several spy photos we published at the beginning of the month.

 2014 Nissan Patrol facelift spied undisguised

Now in its sixth generation, the current Patrol was launched in 2010 so Nissan has prepared a mid-cycle update for its popular SUV. Don’t expect a lot of changes as we only notice subtle modifications to the front fascia and the taillight graphics. There also seem to be a fresh new design for the alloys and tan leather upholstery inside the cabin which also gets a wood-trimmed steering wheel.

Nissan has also introduced a limited-run Patrol Black Special Edition which will be offered in 200 units. These cars will come several enhancements such as red seats, chrome detailing and a black matte exterior paint scheme.

Mazda3 SKYACTIV-CNG concept heading to Tokyo Motor Show

Mazda has announced plans to show a CNG version of the all-new Mazda3 next month at the Tokyo Motor Show.
 Mazda3 SKYACTIV-CNG concept heading to Tokyo Motor Show
Approximately two weeks ago Mazda revealed a hybrid version of the Axela/Mazda3 Hybrid and now they are previewing a CNG concept Mazda3 which will be showcased towards the end of November at the Tokyo Motor Show. The concept will feature a dual fuel system so it will be able to run not only on gasoline but also on compressed natural gas.
Mazda says only minor modifications were necessary for the conversion since the firm’s SKYACTIV-G gasoline engine already has a high compression ratio which is necessary since CNG engines burn fuel at a higher pressure. The Japanese marque mentions CO2 emissions should drop by 20 percent compared to the regular gasoline-powered Mazda3 which can be had in hatchback and sedan body styles.
Mazda hasn’t said a word about putting the CNG version on sale sometime in the future but it’s likely to happen since the company acknowledges demand for CNG-powered cars has risen over recent years.

2014 Suzuki Alto spied for the first time

Nissan has decided to discontinue the Pixo in order to better concentrate on its other small models.
A Nissan spokesman told  the Japanese marque has decided to stop taking orders for the Pixo and after the remaining ones will be fulfilled the car is going to be axed indefinitely. Although Nissan describes the Pixo as a “good competitor for cars in that class”, they want to focus on their more important small cars such as the Micra, Note and Juke.
The Nissan Pixo uses just about the same underpinnings as the Suzuki Alto, but the latter will live on and production will continue at the same Indian factory where the Pixo was made. Moreover, we already showed you spy photos of the new-generation Alto which is programmed for a 2015 market release
 2014 Suzuki Alto spied for the first time
The new generation of the 2014 Suzuki Alto/Pixo has been captured on camera for the first time.
The current model was launched in 2008 so time has come for a replacement which will be based on the latest WagonR that came out in Japan last year. The car is expected to grow in size compared to the outgoing model and should gain additional equipment inside the cabin. The elongated wheelbase will provide more legroom for rear passengers, while the taller body should provide a more airy interior.
Depending on market, the Suzuki Alto is also sold as the Celerio, Nissan Pixo and as a Maruti Suzuki A-Star. These prototypes were seen testing somewhere in the south European mountains and in some of the photos we take a look at the rather modest 90s-like interior cabin.
Details about engine lineup are scarce at the moment, but some reports are indicating the new model will be offered with a two-cylinder, 800cc turbo-diesel engine which will power other frugal Suzuki and Maruti small cars.

2014 Toyota Harrier returns in new official pics

Toyota has released additional photos of the 2014 Harrier which is essentially a Lexus RX with a modified body.
Set to be sold exclusively in Japan, the 2014 Harrier adopts a significantly modified front fascia compared to the RX, packing a pair of appealing darkened headlamps, an Avalon-like large air intake as well as what appears to be a glossy transparent plastic grille. At the back there are stylish slender taillights and a roof-mounted spoiler.
 2014 Toyota Harrier returns in new official pics
Official details about what powers the Harrier are not known at this moment but we will find out in the near future as the car will allegedly reach dealerships this winter. Since the attached photos show the “Hybrid Synergy Drive” badging, Toyota plans on offering the Harrier at least in an eco-friendly variant which could include V6 3.5-liter engine from the RX 450h working with two electric motors and a Ni-MH battery to provide a combined output of 295 bhp (220 kW). The Lexus version needs 7.8 seconds to complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run and will do a top speed of 124 mph (200 km/h).

Why to Buy a Used Japanese Car

Japanese used cars are the most reliable

 
 

A research undertaken by Warranty Direct ·an insurance expert and by What Car? ·the motoring magazine ·indicates that Japanese cars are the most reliable in the used car category. A reliability survey also showed that the top seven places in ten were taken by Japan car manufacturers while European used cars are from among the ten least reliable

Japanese car manufacturers Honda ·leading for the fifth year, followed by Subaru, Mitsubishi, Lexus and Toyota ·in that order ·took the top credits in polls conducted on performing old cars aged between three and ten years . Very few of these cars required repairs in a one year period of use, with Honda leading with the least at just seven per cent cars needing repairs.

The other Japanese used cars leading the lot were Mazda and Nissan. Germany-made Skoda and Britain-made MINI were the only cars from the west that passed the survey of reliable used cars, with Skoda in the eighth and MINI in the tenth position. Among the least reliable cars Land Rover of Britain led at 53% failure rate with other European cars Renault Alfa Romeo, Peugeot, Vauxhall, MG, Saab, BMW, Rover and the Audi proving to be prone to more break downs. What Car? stated that break down charges on a Renault are lower as compared to Mazda and Porsche. These surveys are a boon to car manufacturers, which keep striving to improve the mechanics of their newer models to making them more reliable and in another couple of years of more, the hard facts on these poorly performing vehicles are likely to disappear altogether.

Car manufacturers holding prestigious positions have had to undergo embarrassing rates of failure as compared to manufacturers of cars that have been pegged as not being reliable, as the latter are showing signs of improving on their reliability status. Among Japanese manufactured cars, in spite of the fact that used Honda cars give the least problems, ten percent of their break downs happen with the air conditioning systems.

Subarus have gained notoriety with their brakes failure and axle and suspension problems. Even with Toyota having to recall several thousands of their cars from the showrooms, their reliability rating for Japanese used cars has not fallen. The new manufacturing units for Japanese cars are improving on their cars and it is anticipated that Japanese cars will maintain their number one position for being the most reliable cars. So, if you have decided to buy a used Japanese car, you have not made a wrong decision.

Subaru has announced the 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid

Subaru has announced the 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid will be priced from $25,995 when it goes on sale in the United States later this year.
Designed to combine fuel-efficiency with go-anywhere capability, the XV Crosstrek Hybrid is distinguished by an active shutter grille, unique alloy wheels, LED taillights and an optional Plasma Green Pearl exterior that is exclusive to the hybrid model. The crossover also has additional sound deadening material, a revised instrument cluster, an improved HVAC system and a 4.3-inch LCD multi-information display that shows the status of the hybrid system.
 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid gets detailed and priced
Power is provided by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine that develops 148 bhp (110 kW) and 145 lb-ft (196 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a Lineartronic continuously variable transmission which has an integrated electric motor that produces 13 bhp (9 kW) and 48 lb-ft (65 Nm) of torque. This setup enables the model to return an estimated 28 mpg city / 34 mpg highway / 31 mpg combined (US).
Despite the addition of the hybrid technology, the model still retains the XV’s off-road capability thanks to 8.7-inches (221mm) of ground clearance and a Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system. The model has also been equipped with “special chassis tuning” for more agile handling.

Tokyo Motor Show

Mitsubishi has announced plans to introduce the eK Space and eK Space Custom at the Tokyo Motor Show next month.
Described as a “super height wagon,” the eK Space is the company’s second kei car to be jointly-developed with Nissan.
The company declined to release specifications but said the model builds on the success of the eK Wagon by providing “an increase in cabin volume with an interior height that rivals the leaders in its class.” As a result, the model has a box-like appearance that favors function over form. However, the car comes nicely equipped with tinted rear windows and an electric sliding rear door.
 Mitsubishi eK Space announced, debuts at the Tokyo Motor Show
The four-seat cabin is relatively sparse but features metallic accents, a rear air “circulator” and a “touch panel” climate control system. Higher-end variants can also be equipped with a touchscreen infotainment system that has GPS navigation.
There’s no word on what powers the model but we wouldn’t be surprised if it uses the same three-cylinder engines as the eK Wagon and eK Custom. If this is correct, we can expect the model will have outputs of 49 HP (36 kW) and 64 HP (47 kW).
The eK Space and eK Space Custom will go on sale in Japan early next year and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
