good morning. Welcome to the weekly digest of car news from around the world.
The Tokyo Auto Salon will be revived as a physical event in 2022, and the Japanese automobile industry will shine. Check out the TAS2022 Hub for all the latest news, including car revival, concepts and tuned show cars!
Honda’s popular HR-V will appear in the North American market, but I was able to confirm how different it looks from the international version released last year. Honda’s sketches show an oval grille, sweepback headlights, a traditional rear door handle, and a two-tone bumper. Specifications are undecided, but Civic’s 2.0-liter 4-pot engine is expected to appear.
Targeting luxury pickup products such as the GMC Denali, the all-new Tundra Capstone features several options to achieve a class above the platinum and 1794 trim levels that dominated the roost. These include chrome mirror caps, 22-inch chrome wheels, power running boards, power bed steps, heated and ventilated leather seats, and heated steering wheels. There’s also a panoramic moonroof, a capstone logo illuminated on the dashboard, a JBL sound system, and acoustic glass.
Brazil will be the first market to get an improved Jeep Renegade. It will be previewed before it is fully released in the coming months. Changes are limited to shorter fascias, reworked grills, new DRLs, modified taillights, and different rear bumpers. Brazil also has a 1.3-liter T270 turboflex engine, which is unlikely to appear in other markets. However, US and European customers can expect to see changes in appearance in the near future.
Toyota’s new GR GT3 coupe concept is largely different from what has been seen so far, as it is not based primarily on existing mass-produced vehicles. There are no signs that the GR GT3 will be in the hands of racetracks or customers, but it certainly looks like a business.
As the name implies, the shocking XM concept was exactly that: the concept. However, it is a well-known fact that a commercial version will be available soon, and our independent illustrations predict what it will look like. The overall impact is a bit subdued, but you can’t escape the jumbo-sized kidney grille. The overall ratio, however, is surprisingly fun. Expect some serious power under the hood, thanks to Level 3 autonomous driving technology and the V8 and plug-in “M Hybrid Drive” system.
Ford’s purchase order for Bronco is pretty full, which means a long waiting list and increased prices for those who want immediate satisfaction. Unless at least Wendy H. was able to find a 2021 car sitting in a dealer lot in Fairbanks, Alaska. The car was ordered by a customer who failed to raise money and got Bronco. Perhaps most surprisingly, the dealer did not slap the expensive markup and let it go to MSRP.
Parking can be difficult for some of us, especially if you are not used to driving. But you probably don’t want to do it like a Chinese driver did. What can only be described as a shocking display of dangerous driving, a black sedan hits a row of parked cars, installs the first few cars, and somehow lands in an empty slot. I’m sure it wasn’t their intention in the first place, but by chance they got to the parking lot!
What else is making the news
Google wants to bring UK workers back to the office, investing $ 1 billion
Many of us are accustomed to working from home, or at least some kind of hybrid arrangement. But now, Google is pushing back to the office, increasing its capacity in the UK by 50% and spending £ 730m ($ 1 billion) to “revitalize” the work environment. “Everyone wants to come back and see the vibrant workspace again,” said Ronan Harris, Google’s UK boss.
