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.

    According to a recent report, Nissan will unveil a Toyota 86 / Subaru BRZ competitor at the Tokyo Motor Show.

    Al Ain Japan says the model will be a production-like concept that borrows styling cues from the company’s past. That’s a little vague but Nissan has reportedly confirmed it won’t be a “Z” car.
    The concept was reportedly designed to gauge customer reaction to an entry-level sports car. If the results are favorable, the model could go into production with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 197 bhp (147 kW).

    The model is expected to be shown alongside another concept which is simply being described as “crazy.”

    A little turbo engine in a small, rear-wheel drive sports car? Sure. That would be great. If you like it, you know, react well to it so Nissan builds it.

    There were fewer details on the “crazy” sports car. This is purely a guess on my part, but maybe it will be some kind of new GT-R? We’ve heard that the Nismo GT-R, which can supposedly hit zero to 60 mph in a stunning two seconds, is also coming to the Tokyo show next month.

    Either way, Nissan should have some excitement in store for enthusiasts when the Tokyo show rolls around. Always a good thing

    Nissan’s Golf rival to get Nismo version, GT-R Nismo due next month with Williams F1 aero tech – photos

    Nissan’s vice-president of sales and marketing Guillaume Cartier confirmed the upcoming Golf-rivaling hatchback will receive a hot Nismo variant and that the GT-R Nismo will be shown next month at Tokyo Motor Show sporting Williams F1-developed aerodynamics.
    Due sometime next year, the C-segment hatchback from Nissan promises to take on the highly popular Volkswagen Golf VII “from BlueMotion to GTI” and it will do that at a competitive price tag.
    Nissan’s response to the frugal BlueMotion Golf will be a diesel-powered model which promises to match the rival’s 88.3 mpg UK (73.5 mpg US or 3.2 liters / 100 km) and 85 g/km CO2 emissions. More importantly, at the other end of the spectrum we shall see a Nismo-prepared version of the new Nissan hatchback.
     Nissans Golf rival to get Nismo version, GT-R Nismo due next month with Williams F1 aero tech
    Nissan will show the GT-R Nismo at next month’s Tokyo Motor Show and its aerodynamics were co-developed with the Williams F1 team. As a result of the changes, the more powerful and lighter GT-R will be able to lap the Nürburgring (Germany) faster than the current 7 minutes and 26 seconds. The GT-R will be exhibited alongside two concepts, a radical one which won’t spawn a production model and a retro-inspired vehicle that could reach showrooms in the future.
    Nissan’s other plans for 2014 include the unveiling of the second-gen Qashqai at the beginning of the year, along with the market launch of the X-Trail which will replace not only the outgoing model but also the Qashqai+2 as the 2014 X-Trail will be available with an optional seven-seat layout.

    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.

    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.
