PostHeaderIcon Suzuki Should Build this Jimny Sierra Pickup and Sell it to the Masses

It looks like Suzuki hit a jackpot with the Jimny. It has garnered a lot of attention, thanks to its small yet rugged off-roader status. Just when we thought we had seen it all and the excitement was slowly sinking in, Suzuki decided to play with the Jimny a little more, and the result is simply fantastic.

PostHeaderIcon The Subaru Impreza STI and Forester STI e-Boxer Concepts Coming To Tokyo are Crazy Sexy

Automakers are gearing up for the Tokyo Auto Show, and it’s already proving to be a show of conceptual goodness. Outside of Mitsubishi’s interesting concepts Subaru will be in attendance with two pretty awesome concepts – the Forester STI e-Boxer and the Impreza STI. Both come wearing a beautiful helping of STI design to go with, most likely, limited performance. Here’s what we know about them so far.

PostHeaderIcon The Toyota Hilux Black Rally Edition is a TRD Truck Done Right

The 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon is coming up quick, so you know it’s a guarantee that Toyota would show up with something outrageous wearing a TRD badge. And, it is, in the form of the Prius TRD, but we’ll leave that for another conversation. Instead, I want to tell you about the Toyota Hilux Black Rally Edition that has TRD written, literally, all over it.

PostHeaderIcon A Japanese-Rooted Automobile College Has Combined Lamborghini and Toyota DNA to Create the Urus 86 Pickup for the Tokyo Auto Salon

We’ve been dreaming about a pickup truck version of the Lamborghini Urus ever since the luxury SUV broke cover, but we’re pretty sure the Italians won’t make one. Fortunately, the folks over at Nihon Automobile College in Japan created one for the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon. There’s a catch though, – it’s not exactly a Urus.

PostHeaderIcon Mitsubishi is Bringing Three Concepts to the Tokyo Auto Salon, All of Which Lack Certain Necessities

The Tokyo Auto Salon is nearing its arrival and Mitsubishi is prepared to tackle the show with not one, not two, but three concepts. The first one is based on the Delica D:5 and offers up a take on what an off-road-oriented model could look like. The other two concepts are based on the Outlander PHEV and Eclipse Cross, and both go by the name “Street Sport.” Information is still rather thin at this point, but here’s what we know so far.

PostHeaderIcon Mazda is Set to Put on One Hell of a Showing at the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon

Mazda seems to be on a roll these days. After attending auto shows all across the globe, the Japanese automaker finally returns to its homeland with a variety of models that it plans to unveil at the Tokyo Auto Salon next month. Can it spin the same magic and continue the good form here?

PostHeaderIcon Mazda MX-5 RF Custom Style

The Mazda MX-5 Miata has earned its place in automotive history as arguably the most successful compact sports car in the industry. It’s never had insane amounts of power, but its combination of size, performance, and versatility has turned into an all-time great. The model is over 25 years old and has seen four generations worth of changes; that longevity is another one of its most notable claims to fame. This year though, Mazda did something to the MX-5 that it hasn’t done in the model’s long and proud history. It reconfigured the sports car with a targa roof, christening it as the MX-5 Miata RF, and giving it an extra jolt life that it probably didn’t need on its way to becoming an all-timer. Not content with just introducing the MX-5 RF, Mazda is taking it to another level with the introduction of a special edition version of the Miata RF, called the RF Custom Style.

Scheduled to make its debut at the 2017 Tokyo Auto Salon in early Januaryk, the MX-5 RF Custom Style is the first special edition treatment given to the new Miata variant. We all know that Mazda’s not bashful about giving the MX-5 special edition varieties – the just-announced MX-5 Arctic Edition is proof of that – so it’s not a surprise that it’s giving some of that love to the MX-5 RF.

In true Mazda fashion, the exclusive features of the Miara RF Custom Style aren’t just cosmetic by nature. It’s not just about making the car look racier than it already is. It’s about enhancing the performance credentials of the rear-wheel-drive, compact sports roadster and make it even more hellacious to drive on the track. It’s true that the RF variant of the Miata is heavier than the standard version on account of the retractable roof panel and the lift-up flying buttresses. Mazda didn’t specifically mention it, but there’s a good chance that added aerodynamic components on the RF Custom Style is Mazda’s way of addressing the extra weight and improve the car’s performance to “standard” Miata levels.

There’s no way of confirming that at this point because the automaker did not release the performance figures of the MX-5 RF Custom Style. The puzzle pieces fit though and in the absence of anything concrete, it’s worth establishing that there’s really more to the MX-5 Miata RF Custom Style than meets the (naked) eye.

The numbers should be impressive, but there is a always a downside when it comes to special edition MX-5s. More often than not, they don’t make their way to the US market and unless Mazda specifically says otherwise, don’t expect the MX-5 Miata RF Custom Style to find its way here too.

VITT Tokyo Auto Salon-0

If you have been following our coverage of VITT Squalo’s cars here on MW, you know that these guys are one of favorite Japanese tuners because of their unique style. We have shown you their cars individually before, but now let’s check them out together at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2016. And, as a cherry for the top, there’s also plenty of booth babes!

VITT decided to leave their Lamborghini Aventador and Mercedes S Class behind and instead focus their Tokyo Auto Salon 2016 efforts on the two Mercedes sports cars they have prepared. The more eye-catching of the two was the Mercedes SL63 body kit in red, but the absolute highlight of the booth was the VITT Mercedes S63 Coupe of which we had only seen a preview before. They had saved this car for the big show where it was officially unveiled, flaunting one of the sickest body kits yet created for the S-Class Coupe anywhere in the world. It consists of custom front and rear bumpers as well as modified wings and skirts, front splitter and a huge rear wing.

Check out the cars in the gallery below and do not let the girls distract you:

PostHeaderIcon Toyota ViRA

It’s common knowledge that Toyotas are among the most reliable cars in the world. They’re also quite affordable across the range, and some of them are sportier than you might think. On the other hand, the Japanese company is still struggling to attract a younger audience in its showrooms, and the recently updated Camry and Avalon didn’t quite do it. However, Toyota is willing to try just about anything in today’s competitive market, and its brand-new concept for the 2016 Tokyo Auto Show proves just that.

Dubbed ViRA, this sleek and sporty looking compact crossover is, according to Toyota, a mash-up between the Vitz subcompact (known as the Yaris in the U.S.) and the RAV4. Even the name suggests that, as the company took the Vi out of the Vitz and the RA out of the RAV4 and came up with ViRA. Not exactly inspirational for a car name, but we’ve seen concepts with weirder names.

Toyota didn’t have much to say about this new show piece, and there’s no word as to what might lurk under the long hood or whether or not it will spawn a production model. Details should be unveiled as the ViRA makes its official debut at the Tokyo Auto Show next week, so make sure you stick around for the full rundown. Meanwhile, have a look at our speculative review below.
