Tokyo Motor Show 2013 preview

JonathanNovember 4, 2013

Many customers chose car leasing because it allows you to drive and try a higher number of models than buying allows you. This, for many car enthusiasts, is a rare treat, which allows them to live the high-life at an affordable price.

However, other big events for car enthusiasts are the annual motor shows, which gives people from around the world a chance to see what some of the top brands have in-store over the next year or so.

The 2013 Tokyo Motor Show will kick off in a couple of weeks (November 20th) and will be one of the biggest platforms that allows brands to showcase their latest international offerings.

We’ve highlighted what just a few of the biggest brands will be bringing to the Tokyo event.

Nissan Nissan has already confirmed that its second-generation Qashqai will be unveiled on November 7th and will be making an appearance at this year’s Toyko show just a few days later.

The model, which goes on sale next year, has been dubbed the “most significant car in its modern history” by Nissan itself, so expectations are high. It is thought that the Japanese car makers will also bring a couple of sport concepts to the high-profile event. According to sources from the company, one will be almost in production, while the other will be a more “wild” option.

Porsche The Porsche Macan has been a hot topic among car enthusiasts and experts alike and is expected to be one of the company’s biggest releases. With prices expected to start at just over £30,000, it could have a fairly wide audience when it comes to potential buyers.

Various images and information has leaked about the upcoming Porsche Macan. These indicate that the model will have two six-cylinder turbo engines, which will be available straight from launch.

Porsche will also unveil its most powerful Panamera yet with the Turbo S. Feeding the power hungry, the model offers a 562bhp 4.8-litre V8 and has an extra 49bhp when compared with the standard version. However, the extra power will cost you a wallet-busting  £131,049, which means that, for many of us, the power dream will not become a reality.

Suzuki Going for quantity as well as quality is Suzuki, which will be bringing four new concept cars to the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. Among these will be two variants of the company’s Hustler vehicle, with both sporting five doors and upright styling, though the Coupe has a more curvaceous back. Car enthusiasts will also get a second look at the company’s iV-4 compact SUV concept car after it made its debut appearance at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show earlier this year.

Honda Honda is expected to showcase its S660 Concept at the Tokyo motoring event. The vehicle is a more modern take on the classic rear-wheel drive Beat roadster. It will also be giving customers another look at the Urban SUV Concept, which is debuted back in January at this year’s Detroit Motor Show.

MINI The headliner for the company at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show will be the latest take on the classic MINI Cooper. It will make its global debut at the LA and Tokyo Motor Shows this month. The car maker has made a number of changes to its iconic model, including some physical alterations with the headlights and bumpers. However, the biggest changes are under the bonnet with brand new 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbo engines being made available for the first time.
