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

Five reasons to love and hate Peugeot 308

Welter has repeatedly said that the main thing in the design of Peugeot – the cat’s appearance, and the last “kitty” he turned out very elegant. Initially, the model went into a series in two bodies (three- and five-door hatchback), but less than a year after the start of sales, the Peugeot 308 SW wagon and the two-door coupe-convertible 308 CC were launched into mass production.

Five reasons to love and hate the Nissan Pathfinder III

The name Pathfinder first appeared in the gamut of the Nissan brand in 1985, during the heyday of interest in off-road cars of the “universal” class, combining the permeability and utility of the “professionals” with the comfort of passenger cars. Then the designers of the brand did the same as everyone else: they took the four-wheel drive pickup truck chassis (with independent front suspension and reduction gear in the transmission) and equipped it with a station wagon. Thus was born the SUV with the factory code WD21. In other markets, this car was sold as a Terrano, and the production of this model continued until 1996, when it was replaced by the Pathfinder R50.
In 1993, a separate, purely European branch, named Terrano II, sprang from this trunk, which, nevertheless, soon sprouted in America under the name Ford Maverick (the car whose exterior was designed by Belgian designer Alain Bloné was developed jointly with the concern Ford) but this is a slightly different story.
