2014 Toyota Corolla rendered as a coupe

The Toyota Paseo was the last attempt from the Japanese manufacturer to build a low-cost entry-level sports coupe. The car was stopped in 1999 and has no direct replacement at the moment.

  2014 Toyota Corolla rendered as a coupe

X-Tomi envisions a worthy successor with his latest renderings based on the Auris hatch. The two-door four seater should rival the likes of Opel Astra GTC and the Renault Megane Coupe.

Do you think the Paseo deserves a place in Toyota's lineup?

The 2014 Toyota Corolla has lost its rear doors in this render made by X-Tomi Design.

The recently unveiled 2014 Corolla in both U.S.- and Euro-spec versions won’t win any design awards, but it certainly brings a significant improvement in terms of styling compared to its predecessors. It’s a nice surprise to see the Corolla looking fairly attractive and this could be the reason why some have already released renders with the recent versions of the eleventh generation model which originally debuted last year in Japan.

The U.S.-spec version was a source of inspiration for X-Tomi Design who envisioned the car as a coupe. Again, it’s not the best looking coupe out there but since it’s wearing the “Corolla” badge we should be more indulgent.

We don’t know if Toyota is planning a coupe version of the latest Corolla but it could be a good idea to further popularize the “Corolla” nameplate which competes with Ford’s “Focus” for the world’s most successful car moniker.

Used Car in Japan, Japanese Used Cars for Sale, Japanese Used Cars

Following a couple of teaser shots, Opel has fully revealed the Astra OPC EXTREME which is heading to Geneva Motor Show next week.

Described as being the fastest road-going Astra ever, the OPC EXTREME is 100 kg (220 lbs) lighter than the regular OPC variant thanks to an extensive use of carbon fiber. This lightweight material was used for making the hood, roof and the wheels which are 20 kg (44 lbs) lighter than the regular alloys. In addition, the fenders are produced from aluminum and weigh just 800 grams / piece instead of their steel counterparts which tip the scales at 2.2 kg (4.8 lbs).

Its heart and soul is a four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline all-aluminum engine delivering more than 300 bhp (224 kW) sent to the front axle through a six-speed manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential. Stopping power comes from Brembo's six-piston brake system with 370mm front discs sitting behind the 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped around in specially developed 245/35 tires.

Performance figures have not been released but given the more power + less weight combo, the car is certainly faster than the regular Astra OPC which needs 5.9 seconds until 60 mph (96 km/h) on its way to a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

The stripped interior has a safety roll bar instead of rear seats while up front there are Recaro bucket seats with Schroth six-point safety belts and a carbon fiber-reinforced steering wheel covered in suede with yellow stitching.

Opel has announced the Astra OPC EXTREME will enter low-volume production after its public debut set for next week at the 84th Geneva Motor Show.

Japanese Car Dealer - Al Ain Japan

A purported picture of the Mazda Hazumi concept has surfaced online.

Japanese Used Car Dealers in Japan

Set to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, the Hazumi has a striking exterior with a prominent grille that is flanked by LED-infused headlights. The concept also has front spoiler, a stylish greenhouse and massive alloy wheels. Other highlights include a black roof, a tailgate-mounted spoiler and aerodynamic side skirts.

Little else is known about the model but it previews the next-generation Mazda2. That particular car will target female buyers and spawn a Toyota variant that will go into production in the summer of 2015.

Hazumi" means "spring up" or "bound" in Japanese and the concept will provide a first glimpse at Mazda's upcoming subcompact model which will probably be shown later this year. Judging by this teaser photo, we notice Mazda has taken styling cues from the Mazda3 and Mazda6 but on a smaller scale to fit the small dimensions of the concept.

As far as the production version, the Mazda2 will target a female audience and it is believed the vehicle will ride on a shortened variant of the CX-5's platform. Expect the car to grow in size compared to the outgoing model and chances are it will spawn a crossover variant.

Also in Geneva next month the audience will get to see Mazda's newly developed SKYACTIV-D 1.5 clean diesel engine which will likely find its way under the hood of the Mazda2 as well as other small and compact models from the Japanese marque.

Suzuki is introducing in UK the Swift SZ-L special edition which will be limited to 500 units.

Japanese marque Suzuki is trying to spice up the UK-spec Swift facelift with a special edition SZ-L based on the mid-range SZ3 but with a few extra goodies. Available starting March 1st, the model comes equipped as standard with air conditioning, seven airbags, ESP, Bluetooth, as well as the LED daytime running lights and cruise control borrowed from the SZ4 variant.

The model is offered with a two-tone metallic paint job available in either Boost Blue or Cosmic Black with contrasting Cool White roof, door mirrors and rear spoiler. The cabin features silver stitching on the gear gaiter, steering wheel and also on the seats which now have a bespoke fabric design.

In the United Kingdom two engines are available. 1.2-liter petrol that produces 94 HP (69 kW) and 118 Nm (87 lb-ft) of torque. It should enable the five-door hatchback to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 12.3 seconds (13.5 seconds with the four-speed automatic) and hit a top speed of up to 165 km/h (102 mph).

The listing also suggests there will be a 1.3-liter diesel that churns out 75 HP (55 kW) and 190 Nm (140 lb-ft) of torque. This should enable the Swift to run from 0-100 km/h in 12.7 seconds, before topping out at 165 km/h (102 mph).

The Suzuki Swift SZ-L Special edition will be offered as a three-door model from 10,899 GBP and also a five-door priced from 11,316 GBP.

Honda Cars - Al Ain Japan - Used Car Dealer in Japan

Honda has unveiled the CR-V Black and White Editions in the United Kingdom.

Al Ain japan

The CR-V equipped with the new 1.6-liter i-DTEC Earth Dreams Technology diesel engine. The power unit is available exclusively for the two-wheel drive version fitted with a manual gearbox. The engine is the lightest diesel in its class, generating 120 HP (88 kW) at 4,000 rpm and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque at 2,000 rpm with CO2 emissions as low as 119 g/km.

The British built SUV is very slightly longer than the old model, but has a 30mm lower roofline and the rear seat base has been dropped by 38mm, along with the driver’s seat dropping 10mm, all of which give the CR-V a much more car-like feel. Honda describe the car as a “perfectly centred balance between a car and an SUV”.

Visually the front end adopts the new Honda styling theme with a large grille that overlaps the swept-back headlights and a sharply creased front bumper with chunky off-road cladding at the bottom.

Described as a real head tuner, the special editions are equipped with a mesh grille, side running boards and body color skid plates. The crossovers also have privacy glass, a tailgate-mounted spoiler, a chrome exhaust tip and 19-inch Orion-style alloy wheels.

Interior changes are limited but the models come nicely equipped with dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth connectivity and GPS navigation.

The waistline rises up to the rear end where we see a small rear window and wraparound rear lights that from the rear three-quarter view gives a look very much like that of the Volvo XC60.

The special editions are currently on sale and the petrol variant starts at £28,400 (OTR).

Subaru car in Japan - Al Ain Japan

Subaru is allegedly plotting a special edition BRZ but don't get your hopes up too high as it won't feature turbocharging.

Al AIn Japan

Our colleagues from Car & Driver have obtained information about an upcoming Subaru BRZ special edition that will be revealed later this year. While many are waiting for Subaru to finally turbocharge the BRZ, it seems the special edition will come only with cosmetic changes such as a front lip spoiler, STI badging and bespoke alloy wheels. The kit will also include a rear wing and different side skirts to complete the exterior look.

Don't expect to find the handling tweaks implemented in the Japan-exclusive BRZ tS which also comes with a few upgrades in the braking and suspension departments. For those who can't wait anymore for a factory turbo for the BRZ, there are many aftermarket specialist willing to apply forced induction on the 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter boxer engine of the BRZ which in naturally aspirated form delivers 200 HP (147 kW).

On the outside it is distinguished by STI 17-inch black alloy wheels and a black look for the side mirrors. It will be available with a variety of body paint schemes, while the cabin is set to get two-tone leather-wrapped steering wheel and seats. Above the instrument panel it will have black Alcantara with contrast tan stitching also found at the doors' top section and on the sides of the center console.

Other upgrades worth mentioning include the aluminum pedals, STI engine button, silver accents and a carbon fiber trim on the dashboard. Subaru also used tan leather for the doors, and black leather with tan stitching on the gearbox and handbrake levers.

Scheduled to go on sale exclusively in Japan at the end of the year, the Subaru BRZ Premium Sport Edition will have a starting price of 3,034,500 yen (approximately 31,000 USD / 22,600 EUR / 19,300 GBP).

Toyota car Exporters in Japan - Al Ain Japan

Toyota's Australian product planning manager has revealed the company is considering a small crossover to slot below the RAV4.

Toyota Usd Car Exporers 
Speaking to Japanese Car Dealer, Mark Dobson said the compact crossover segment is a "market for all players" and "Toyota is interested in any market that is growing.” He went on to say the company has already been conducting research on a potential model to slot below the RAV4 and “That’s the car they [people] want to buy. Those types of cars were seen to satisfy those trends.”

While Toyota already offers the Rush in some markets, it appears the new compact crossover could have greater availability as the segment is booming globally with new entries such as the Opel / Vauxhall Mokka, Buick Encore and Ford EcoSport.

The interior boasts an asymmetrical dashboard which incorporates ambient lighting, secondary controls and a 6.1-inch touchscreen display. There's also has a three-spoke steering wheel, metallic accents and circular air vents. Entry-level models are sparsely equipped but higher-end variants can be ordered with leather upholstery, an Entune infotainment system and an 11-speaker JBL GreenEdge premium audio system.

Power is provided exclusively by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 176 bhp (131 kW) and 172 lb-ft (233 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a new six-speed transmission that enables the model to return 24 mpg city / 31 mpg highway with front-wheel drive and 22 mpg city / 29 mpg highway with the optional all-wheel drive system.

Speaking of the all-wheel drive system, it offers three different modes: Auto, Lock and Sport. Auto Mode primarily sends power to the front wheels but will automatically engage the rear wheels when needed. Lock Mode, on the other hand, evenly distributes power between the front- and rear wheels at speeds less than 25 mph (40 km/h). Lastly, Sport Mode promises to improve the crossover's handling by instantaneous transferring torque to the rear wheels when going around corners.

Ferrari managed to achieve an impressive 2.3 billion EUR revenue in 2013 even though the company sold fewer cars compared to 2012.

Al Ain Japan - Japanese Car Dealer

It was May last year when Ferrari chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo announced the firm's intentions to become a more exclusive brand and a few days later he said annual production would be limited to 7,000 units. He kept his promise as Ferrari sold 6,922 units in 2013, representing a five percent decrease in comparison to 2012.

Despite delivering fewer cars, Ferrari achieved a five percent increase in revenue last year by posting a record 2.3 billion EUR. In addition, Ferrari's trading profit (money made before interest, tax and one-time items) went up by eight percent to 363.5M EUR.

Ferrari's latest product is the 458 Special, an evolution of the Italia, which has already proven to be an instant hit as the Italian company has already received orders enough for one year's worth of production.

Every possible inch of the car that can be made out of carbon fibre is. Carbon fibre is not the only lightweight material used to reduce weight in the car. The glass is entirely made of plexiglass. To further the performance of the car, simply choosing materials is one side of the story. Having ample amount of down force complimented with low drag coefficients at the appropriate times is vital. The new active aerodynamic system in the front (Yay! no more mosquito legs in the front bumper!) as well as the rear spoiler seamlessly coordinate with the driver on how to maximize driving experience not to mention track times.

Al Ain Japan - Japanese Car Dealer 
The engine has been tweaked along with the front bumper, hood, and rear diffuser. If the normal 458 is an Iphone 5, don’t think of this as an iPhone 5s, think of it as the Iphone 7s. All of the modifications speak for themselves in the data, faster by a whole second, light years when talking about supercars, than the prized Ferrari Enzo around Ferrari’s Fiorano test track. Even the 0-60 time is faster than a normal 458, sitting at a incredibly respectable 2.9 seconds.

Al Ain Japan - Japanese Car Dealer

Without a doubt, the Speciale’s main purpose is to go fast, especially around the track. However, unlike most track cars, the Speciale is not cumbersome to drive off track at all. The F-1 transmission is as smooth as you’d expect out of any other Ferrari. As for hiring a full time masseuse due to the track minded ride- forget about it. The new SCM dampers are so reactive that the bumpiest road will little affect on the passengers.

Audi Car Dealer in Japan - Al Ain Japan

Audi has announced they are now taking orders for the A3 Sportback g-tron in Germany where the model has a starting price of 25,900 EUR.

Al Ain Japan - Japanese Used Car For Sale

Introduced almost a year ago at the Geneva Motor Show, Audi's A3 Sports-back g-tron comes with a 4-cylinder, 1.4-liter TFSI gasoline engine outputting 110 HP (81 kW) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque. It sounds just like a normal A3 until you hear the model can run not only on gasoline, but also on natural gas and Audi-generated e-gas. When running in e-gas mode, the vehicle is "entirely CO2-neutral."

In terms of performance, the A3 Sports-back g-tron needs 11 seconds until 62 mph (100 km/h) on its way to a top speed of 118 mph (190 km/h) regardless of the type of fuel used. The vehicle comes equipped with two gas tanks that carry 7 kg (15.3 lbs) of compressed natural gas (CNG) at a maximum pressure of 200 bar. The tanks have been manufactured from CFRP and when at their full capacity they weigh 27 kg (59.5 lbs).

On average, the car consumes between 3.2 and 3.3 kg of gas / 100 km which results in running costs of about 3.50 EUR / 100 km. When it runs on gas it has a range of around 242 miles (400 km) while on gasoline it can do up to 559 miles (900 km). Opt to use both types of fuel and the range increases to 807.7 miles (1,300 km).

As far as the e-gas is concerned, it is a type of synthetic methane produced by Audi at its e-gas facility situated in Werlte in Lower Saxony, Germany. Audi says that an e-gas-running A3 Sportback represents "the most environmentally friendly form of long-distance mobility."

 Audi A3 Sportback g-tron debuts at Geneva Motor Show

The vehicle is equipped with an electronic gas pressure regulator capable of lowering the high pressure of the gas flowing from the cylinders. When greater performances are necessary, it can provide a high-pressure flow, while during low-speed driving it will enable a low-pressure gas.

This is the McLaren 650S - Al Ain Japan

Following a comprehensive leak last weekend, McLaren has revealed online the 650S which will be presented to the public on March 4 at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

 McLaren 650S images and details surface after private presentation

There aren't a lot to talk about in terms of design as the 650S looks essentially like the 12C but with the front fascia taken from the sold-out P1. The mid-range McLaren has received the "650" lettering as its 3.8-liter V8 twin-turbo engine produces 650 HP (478 kW) while the "S" stands for "Sport". Performance figures will be disclosed prior to the car's Geneva launch but McLaren has already announced the 650S will be faster than the 12C so it will be a more appropriate adversary for the Ferrari 458 Special.

You'll notice the new front end, which obviously draws heavily on the P1. The lights are now LED affairs, while there are larger air intakes both in the nose and in front of the rear wheels, which not only aid cooling but also contribute to the 650S's improved aero.

The vehicle rides on fresh five-spoke lightweight forged alloy wheels wrapped around in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires specially developed for this model. Other small changes include door blades behind the front wheels which generate more down-force, helping the new model provide an additional 24 percent of down-force at 150 mph (241 km/h) compared to the 12C.

The McLaren 650S will be available in coupe and Spider body styles from this spring.

Honda spokesman told Automotive News Europe the Insight and CR-Z hybrids won't be offered in Europe anymore.

 Honda Insight and CR-Z facing the axe in Europe - report

It was October last year when we heard a rumor about Honda's decision to stop selling the Insight and CR-Z models on the old continent and now that rumor is a reality. Due to a weak demand, Honda has decided to withdraw these hybrids from Europe but you can still have one since the company has a few of them left in stock.

Honda sold 62 percent less units of the Insight last year in Europe, managing to deliver just 1,242 cars. Sales of the CR-Z dropped by 66 percent to only 695 units, based on the figures released by market researcher JATO Dynamics.

As we have previously reported, the Insight has a 1.3-liter i-VTEC engine and an electric motor that enables the model to produce a combined maximum output of 102 HP (75 kW) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the model to return 65.7 mpg UK (4.3 L/100km / 54.7 mpg US) with CO2 emissions of 99 g/km.

The CR-Z, on the other hand, has a 1.5-liter engine and electric motor for a combined maximum output of 137 HP (100 kW) and 190 Nm (140 lb-ft) of torque. This allows the hatchback to average up to 56.5 mpg UK (5.0 L/100km / 47.0 mpg US) with CO2 emissions as low as 116 g/km.

Europeans who would really like to have an alternative-powered Honda can grab the previous-gen Jazz but this model has also gone down in popularity, with sales decreasing from 7,500 units in 2012 to 4,500 cars in 2013. A plug-in hybrid variant of the new Jazz fit is slated for a 2015 release but Honda hasn't decided whether the model will hit European dealerships.

Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4

Lamborghini has announced they have received 700 orders for the Huracan LP 610-4.

 Lamborghini Huracan receives 700 orders, debuts in Geneva next month

Described as an "excellent start for the heir to the best selling Lamborghini to date," the model is currently on a "month-long private preview tour worldwide for VIP clients." The tour will wrap up later this month before the model is officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show on March 4th.

As a refresher, the Huracan has a 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 610 HP (448 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and an all-wheel drive system which enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 325 km/h (202 mph).

Designed to whet your appetite, the configurator reveals the Huracan will be available with 19 different exterior colors and two different 20-inch alloy wheels. The model can also be equipped with a transparent or black engine cover as well as brake calipers in black, silver, red, orange or yellow.

The 1,422 kg (3,134 lbs) supercar will need 3.2 seconds to get from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) while the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) sprint will take 9.9 seconds. The engine is Euro 6 compliant and enables the Huracan to have an average fuel consumption of 12.5 liters / 100 km (18.8 mpg US or 22.5 mpg UK).

Lancia - Al Ain Japan

he Lancia Ypslion has received a digital makeover from Khalil B. who envisioned the model in a hotter HF version.

Al Ain Japan - Japanese Used Car Dealers

Most of you have probably heard that Lancia is in a critical condition since Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne has announced the brand will soon be offered only in Italy and they will sell just one model, the Ypsilon. Now, Khalil B. decided to digitally create a hotter version of the model wearing the legendary "HF"” (High Fidelity) moniker.

The more potent Lancia Ypsilon envisioned in these renders wears a slightly more aggressive body kit with beefier bumpers, larger alloy wheels, muscular side skirts and a roof-mounted spoiler. It also comes with a dual exhaust arrangement and red accents on the rear diffuser while the mirrors wear a two-tone red and black theme.

At launch, three different engines will be available. The 1.2-liter EVO produces 69 PS (51 kW / 68 hp) and 102 Nm (75 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 14.5 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 163 km/h (101 mph). In terms of efficiency, owners can expect to average 4.5 L/100km (62.8 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 115 g/km.

For something more powerful, the 0.9-liter TwinAir two-cylinder develops 85 PS (63 kW / 84 hp) and 145 Nm (107 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to the extra oomph, the dash from 0-100 km/h takes 11.9 seconds and the top speed is 176 km/h (109 km/h). Despite the extra grunt, the TwinAir is impressively efficient as it has an average fuel consumption of 4.2 L/100km (67.3 mpg UK) and CO2 emissions of 99 g/km.

On the diesel side, the 1.3-liter MultiJet II has 95 PS (70 kW / 94 hp) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque.  It enables the Ypsilon to run from 0-100 km/h in 11.4 seconds and hit a top speed of 183 km/h (114 mph). Lastly, the engine averages 3.8 L/100km (74.3 mpg UK) and has CO2 emissions of 99 g/km.

Inside, the cabin is highly-customizable but all models have a center-mounted instrument cluster and metallic accents. Three different trim levels will be offered and the range-topping variant has leather upholstery, a premium audio system and Blue&Me-TomTom LIVE.

Although it has a lot of potential, an uprated version of the Ypsilon is simply not enough to put Lancia back on the map but it would represent a solid first step to keep the brand afloat.

Kia has announced the 2015 K900 V8 - Al Ain Japan

Kia has announced the 2015 K900 V8 will cost $59,500 - excluding a $900 destination charge - in the United States.

 2015 Kia K900 pricing announced, V8 model starts at $59,500

Set to go on sale later this year, the model comes nicely equipped with adaptive LED headlights, a power-operated trunk and 19-inch chrome-clad alloy wheels.

The cabin boasts an extensive array of standard equipment including a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel, Nappa leather seats and poplar or walnut wood trim. The model also has heated / ventilated front seats, LED ambient lighting and a 17-speaker Lexicon audio system.

It will be offered with an entry-level V6 3.8-liter Lamba engine producing 311 bhp (232 kW) or with an optional beefier V8 5.0-liter Tau generating 420 bhp (313 kW). Both of them are coupled to a newly developed eight-speed transmission sending output to the rear axle.

Kia has equipped the K900 with a five-link fully independent front and rear suspension and standard 18-inch alloys for the V6 model whereas the V8 gets larger 19-inch wheels. Also standard for the eight-cylinder model are adaptive LED headlights comprising of 16 LED bulbs, together with positioning lamps, fog lights, turn signal indicators and taillights that adopt the same technology. 

Also as standard equipment are front and rear park assist sensors and camera, with the V8-powered model also getting the company’s first ever Rear Cross Traffic Alert system. Other technologies available include a lane departure warning system, radar-based Advanced Smart Cruise Control and Kia's first use of the Advanced Vehicle Safety Management.

Hyundai ix25 has been spied for the very first time

The Hyundai ix25 has been spied for the very first time, ahead of an official reveal scheduled for April at the Beijing Motor Show in China.

 2014 Hyundai ix25 spied in Scandinavia ahead of Beijing Motor Show launch in April

Hyundai's upcoming compact crossover will share its platform with the next generation of the i20 and despite the extensive camouflage this prototype was wearing we can easily see it will come with a flat roofline while the front and rear fascias will be similar to other recent Hyundai models. In addition, the beltline seems to be sweeping upwards and the rear doors appear to be narrow which indicates those sitting in the back will be a bit cramped.

Engine lineup will probably be taken from the second generation i20 so expect to find at least a 4-cylinder 1.2-liter gasoline engine along with a more frugal 4-cylinder 1.4-liter diesel. The model will be built in China by the Beijing Hyundai joint venture and will have to compete with the Skoda Yeti, Peugeot 2008, Ford EcoSport and an upcoming production variant of the Volkswagen Taigun.

Aston Martin Lagonda a go for production - Al Ain Japan

 Aston Martin Lagonda SUV could ride on the Mercedes-Benz GL platform

 Mercedes-Benz chief Dieter Zetsche revealed a possible Aston Martin SUV could utilize the GL-Class platform.

It was 2009 when Aston Martin unveiled the Lagonda concept at the Geneva Motor Show and now almost five years later a production model is still being considered. Mercedes-Benz is willing to lend its GL-Class platform for an Aston Martin SUV which is now programmed to come out in 2017. Dieter Zetsche said it's up to the British marque to decide if they want to use the platform.

According to the company, the concept draws inspiration from past Lagonda models as well as modern speedboat design but the end result appears to have little in common with either. The front is dominated by a wide grille with horizontal bars, large air intakes, swept-back headlights, and blackened A-pillars which helps to give the windscreen a wraparound appearance. In profile the concept features a miniature version of Aston Martin's front fender vents, a slopping roofline, an upward-sweeping rear passenger window, flush mounted door handles, and massive 22" wheels. Perhaps the most controversial angle is the concept's rear, as it has a small rear window and a large raised trunk which appears as if it were lifted straight off a Bentley Continental Flying Spur.

Although no interior pictures were released, the company says the cabin features spacious individual seating for four and is designed to provide occupants with a rich environment that leaves them feeling relaxed and comfortable.

Power for the concept comes from a V12 engine with an unspecified engine output, but of more important news is the fact that Lagonda will explore the use of flex-fuel, diesel, and hybrid powertrains for future production models.

An Aston Martin SUV will surely upset purists but nowadays it seems every automaker out there is making an SUV or a crossover. Even Rolls-Royce and Bentley are working on these models so such a body style coming from Aston Martin won't be out of the ordinary. Sports cars will continue to remain AM's heart and soul and upcoming models will be powered by an AMG-sourced V8 engine as a result of last year's signed collaboration between Aston Martin and Mercedes-Benz's AMG division.

BMW 3 Series eDrive Plug-in Hybrid

The BMW 3-Series Plug-in Hybrid has been spied undergoing cold weather testing in Scandinavia.

 BMW 3-Series Plug-in Hybrid spied cold weather testing

Looking virtually identical to the standard model, the plug-in hybrid is distinguished by a small charging port cover that resides on the driver side front fender.

There's no word on what will power the car but the company recently displayed an X5 eDrive concept which had a plug-in hybrid powertrain that consisted of a TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine, a 95 HP (70 kW) electric motor and a lithium-ion battery. It enabled the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than seven seconds,average 3.8 L/100km (61.8 mpg US / 74.3 mpg UK) and travel up to 30 km (19 miles) on electricity alone.

All signs point towards a systemic output of 272 PS from a 2-liter turbo engine, helped by an electric motor. That's exactly double the power of a Toyota Prius, so don't expect the eDrive to be slow. Speaking of eDrive, we know this is the name BMW is going to give to a whole new family of powertrains. Our first preview came with an X5 concept last year, which supposedly could run in pure electric mode for up to 20 miles and at speeds reaching 75 mph (120 km/h). Basically, you can do short commuter trips of about an hour per day without ever having to burn petrol.

That's pretty amazing, and so is the fuel consumption. On a normal driving cycle, expect somewhere in the region of 3.8 l/100km. Not bad for a car that can still probably do 250 km/h.

Nissan Juke Small Crossover SUV Revealed - Al Ain Japan

Our spies have managed to snap a few photos of the upcoming Nissan Juke facelift which will retain most of the rather controversial design.

 Nissan Juke facelift spied for the first time
For buying Used Nissan Juke visit  - Al Ain Japan

The refreshed Juke will continue with the love/hate design as the alien-shaped front will sport the similar oversized rounded headlights but there will be some tweaks in the front grille and bumper. The side profile doesn't seem to bring any changes while at the back there's a new bumper and reworked taillights.

The alloy wheel design will also undergo a minor surgery while the interior cabin will probably be left untouched. Under the hood the facelift Juke will likely get the 2014 Qashqai's 1.2-liter DIG-T engine rated at 115 HP (85 kW) and 140 lb-ft (190 Nm) which will replace the naturally-aspirated 1.6-liter motor. the Juke measures 4 metres (157 inches) long, 1.765m (69.5 inches) wide and 1.57m (61.8 inches) high. It has a wheelbase of 2.5m (94 inches).

The vehicle is a combination of SUV and sports car. The former is quite evident on the bottom part of the body where chunky wheels, wide tyres and a higher ground clearance appear. At the top a higher waistline and a sloped roofline with a spoiler point to its sports car heritage that includes cars like the 370Z. Incidentally the sports coupe has inspired the Juke's boomerang-shaped rear lights. The headlights are split into two elements sitting on either half of the front end. Nine exterior colours are to be made available when it goes on sale.

Juke has been confirmed for Europe, Japan and the United States.  World debut takes place in Geneva early next month while the North American version of Juke is scheduled to debut at the New York Auto Show in late March.

It is believed Nissan will showcase the facelifted Juke in October at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.

Datsun budget sedan seen without camo in Russia

An undisguised Datsun sedan was spotted somewhere in Russia, ahead of a very possible launch later this year.

 Datsun budget sedan seen without camo in Russia

Details about the low-cost Datsun sedan are not available at this point but it is believed the model will be based on the Lada Granta which is actually based on the Lada Kalina. This platform was created by Renault in collaboration with Russian carmaker AvtoVAZ and was likely used for this sedan which will reportedly receive a hatchback derivative late this year.

It will be offered exclusively with a 1.2-liter engine linked to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The exterior design closely mirrors the Micra, while inside the typical glovebox has been replaced by a space under the dashboard. Datsun moved the handbrake and gear lever to the dashboard as a method to free up space between the front seats. They also borrowed the Micra’s door handles and AC vents.
Production of the Datsun sedan will take place in Russia and order books will allegedly open in April. The aforementioned five-door hatchback will likely be unveiled in August at the Moscow Motor Show.
