Minor changes for Honda Legend in Japan

Honda did some minor tweaks to the Legend, including a newly developed six-speed automatic transmission, resulting in improved fuel economy and dynamic performance, as well as a type of silencer fitted around the wheels reducing the noise generated by the tyres.

The Legend is sold in Japan with prices starting from 6,200,000 ¥ and two additional packages are available called Advance and Euro.

Rendering shows Subaru FT-86 and new Impreza STI

The rendering above, which has been published by a Japanese magazine, shows the upcoming Subaru FT-86 on the left and the new Impreza STI on the right. Although this is just a rendering and the design of both cars appears to be a little dramatic, it provides an indication of the possible future design language of Subaru could look like. I think Subaru has to do a lot of work in terms of design, in order its cars to have a clear identity.

New Nissan Tiida (Versa) caught during testing

The new Nissan Tiida (Versa) was caught during testing in China and you can see some design elements of it, despite the camouflage. The new model, which has the Sunny logo on it, is going to be equipped with a 1.8L engine, but it's too early to know the spec for each market yet. Anyway, from what is visible, the new model will be miles better than the current one.
