Tokyo Motor Show 2019 Highlights

(Reading time: 2 - 3 minutes)

Subaru Levorg Prototype

This isn't one we've not attended yet, mind you the cars they unveiled would have made it well worth while.

 
The Tokyo motor show showcases many cars, perfect for the automotive enthusiast, as you probably seen we've got the Subaru Levorg on review currently, well Subaru have just unveiled a brand new Levorg prototype and it looks fabulous ,very sporty it has a big bonnet scoop sporty sloping roof line and it does look like the perfect wagon or estate car as we call it in the UK.
 
The powerful styling and the conceptual design really do work for it and with the chnace of it being powered by a 1.8 Turbo, hopefully a manual gearbox, or an even newer breed of the Lineartronic. The thing with concepts is they change quite radically, with the exception of a few cars including the BMW i8, Subaru make this great, please.
 

New Honda Jazz

Another one of the cars that has interested many is the brand-new Honda Jazz,  it's got some really distinct design styling, love or hate it comes to mind, it's got more of a look the Civic with a more distinct front, it's it's an interesting one it's styling lends it self more to a mini van style it seems to have a more sharper front.

 
It looks like a modern version of the early Jazz, with futuristic tweaks, a bit like the top windows on the new Land Rover Defender echoing the Series 1 design style.
 
 
The New Honda Jazz has gone back to its roots, after two successive generations, the last one we loved mind you it surprised many a car on a back road.
 
It' a cooler looking car, with cabin features incuding more tech and quality materials and a sporty smaller steering wheel, as you'd expect its extremely practical, like the last one then, mind you this one has opted for a two-motor hybrid system great for urban adventures.

The Subaru Levorg starts at just under £30,000 however this model that we have is the 2L i GT model powered by a flat for Boxer engine coupled to a lineartronic gearbox, an economical impressive drive, as you know by now the lineartronic has advanced since the earlier models this is a great looking practical estate car.

Peugeot Rifter Review & Road Test

(Reading time: 1 - 2 minutes)

A very versatile vehicle, with some rather cool styling, very practical, masses of storage and there's a range of engines and gearboxes. If this doesn't suit you, you can option it up as you see, fit, we found this combo a great one, lots of power and more engaging than you'd think.
