You will not please everyone. New Toyota RAV4

Designers RAV4, it seems, really finally dismissed – in the sense, not home, but emotionally and documented. How else to explain the fact that the concept of FT-AC, shown last year, turned out to be almost an exact copy of the production model? Yes, with such an approach, it is unlikely that it will be possible to make housewives sit in RAV4 – but almost all the other “target groups” are unlikely to remain dissatisfied. Well, the Japanese are trying to delight the eye with gloss and gloss lovers with an exterior finish, which, however, is somewhat discordant with the image of the “space explorer”.
The bright image accompanies the logical transition of the model to the new GA-K platform of the TNGA architecture: this is exactly what makes the RAV4 related to the Camry, and at the same time to the Avalon and Lexus ES. However, this does not mean an absolute technical relationship – the machines simply scale according to a similar principle. There is 13 centimeters less space between the axles than the Camry, but 3 centimeters more than the old RAV4 – 2,690 millimeters. Continue reading

Extenuating circumstances. Updated Suzuki Vitara

Vitara is the best-selling Suzuki model in Europe and Russia: from January to August of this year, 55,826 and 2,423 units were sold, respectively. Consumers are attracted by the laconic design in the spirit of the discontinued Grand Vitara SUV and the healthy conservatism of the Japanese crossover’s technical stuffing.
The update started in the fourth year of life did not bring radical changes to Vitara, but the fiat 1.6-liter turbodiesel and outdated gasoline aspirated with the same working volume disappeared from the gamut of engines of the European version due to tougher environmental requirements. But if in Europe amtospheric motors leave even the segment of mass inexpensive models, then in Russia they are still in great demand. More than 90% of Vitar are sold in our country with just 1.6 petrol engine (117 hp), and Suzuki reasonably decided for us to leave this unit, and instead Europeans will be offered a 111 Boosterjet petrol turbojet hp Continue reading

They went horseback. Peugeot e-Legend

This time, the Peugeot brand did without loud presentations at its home salon, where journalists, it must be admitted, are often driven away by force. Meanwhile, it was Peugeot from the entire bush of French brands that performed at the Paris Motor Show more successfully than the rest. On the one hand, demonstrating a practical 508 SW wagon, which, according to the company’s managers, will account for 60% of model sales in Europe. On the other hand, showing the retroconcept e-Legend, which, according to our observations, has become the most popular car in the cabin among all the “French”. And so that the visitors did not miss, they did not get lost in the large pavilion and certainly found e-Legend, the big lion pointed the way to the new product.
The retro theme in concepts, of course, is not new, but artists do not often turn to a specific model of the brand. Continue reading
