It’s been a busy week for us at iCar Asia. We covered the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, exciting automotive news plus new car launches. Here are our top stories of the week from our sister site, LIVE LIFE DRIVE. Check it out!
The all-new fourth generation Honda City made its world premiere earlier today at New Delhi, India. This is only a preview event as the all-new City will only go on sale in India in January 2014. All the images used here are screen shots from a webcast so pardon us for the low resolution images used. Clearer shots will be included once we get a copy of it.
The 2014 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Hybrid (known as the Axela Hybrid in Japan) was launched at the Tokyo Motor Show last week. The people at Bermaz Motors, the official distributor of Mazda cars in Malaysia, were kind enough to invite us to Japan to test their first hybrid model.
Honda unveiled not one, but two close-to-production concept cars, the Honda NSX Concept and S660 Concept at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. More than just the outer-space styling, both cars sport similarities as they are both mid-engine sports cars with drive from the engine being sent to the rear wheels and will be put into production in 2015.
Mazda unveiled the all-new Mazda 3 not too long ago in Europe, and now it has made its official debut as the Mazda Axela in Japan along with its fuel-sipping counterparts at the Tokyo Motor Show. We had a chance to catch a glimpse of the new 3 in metal during Bermaz Motors’ ‘Mazda Motorshow’ at One Utama last week.
Subaru fans’ anticipation has been rewarded when Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd., maker of Subaru vehicles, unveiled the all-new Subaru WRX at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show today. Even though those looks have been teased prior to its world debut, Subaru has finally revealed the key highlight of the new WRX.
