In the middle of this year Nissan will finally unveil the long-awaited subcompact SUV Juke the second generation. Tell why it does not appear in our country and what will be offered instead.

In the fed pre-crisis years, the Nissan Juke was a real hit in Russia: for example, in 2014, on the eve of the infamous peak of the ruble, in our country has been sold to almost 20.5 thousand copies of this model. In the spring of 2016 after the collapse of the market Juke disappeared from the market, but returned in the summer of 2017 with the reduced range of trim levels, with a single power unit and only front-wheel drive, and prices are significantly increased. No wonder sales declined procedure: in 2018 Juke found in Russia only 2547 customers, and orders for 2019, the Russian representative office of Nissan UK plant in Sanderlend not posted: in the warehouses there are about 500 cars last year, and after they sell, Juke will forever disappear from our market. About it in interview to our edition said Andrei Akifiev, managing Director of Nissan in Russia.

In the middle of this year after numerous delays and delays, in part related to PACSICOM, Nissan Juke will present the second-generation modular platform Alliance CMF-B, and a key market for him will be Europe. In better years, the Juke has found there are more than 100 buyers, but in 2018, obsolete machine (available since 2010) has attracted only 68 773 customers. This, of course, still quite a lot, but the Renault Captur is much better – implemented 211 092 pieces, and the whole segment subcompany crossovers last year in the EU increased by 29% and amounted to 2 million vehicles, that is, the segment is very promising and the new Juke will try to snatch your piece. This means that the model will offer a high basic level of equipment systems of active and passive safety and modern engines, equipped with the expensive “treatment facilities” and, perhaps, a hybrid add-ons, but all-wheel drive in Europe are not mandatory – local Captur is sold without it.

Kicks

It turns out that attractive in the new Juke for the Russian consumer will, in fact, only the design, and that is not for everyone (the aesthetics of current-generation models are still a matter of controversy), and simplify high-tech machine in our demands, no one will. Instead of the new Juke will be offered the Russians a localized global subcompact crossover, the Nissan Kicks on the budget B0 platform and to collect his likely at the Moscow plant Renault, side by side with kupeobrazny the SUV Renault Arkana. When? Alas, as yet unknown, but unlikely this year, as, according to Andrew Akifeva, Kiks still far from obtaining the cu Tr. By the way, not the fact that the name of the Kicks we’ll be left with perhaps the crossover will provide another, more attractive for our market name.

It turns out that in the near future of Nissan in Russia will not be a small crossover. And what will happen? You can read about it in our separate submissionmade by the fact of the visit to the factory “Nissan manufacturing Rus” in St. Petersburg.

If sportively Canyon to follow in the footsteps of an ancestor, it will be based on the version with single cab, Extended Cab (less Canyon), and rear wheel drive. Just imagine here the rims are bigger, but ground clearance is less.

The concern General Motors has filed a patent application for trademark ZRX. Discovered its publication AutoGuide.com built a curious chain. Index ZRX applied on the “heat” of limited-edition pickup GMC Sonoma in 2003. As the heir to a SONOMA — GMC Canyon. It is likely that we are waiting for Canyon ZRX, fast and aims to operate primarily in the city.

Pickup Sonoma ZRX used the same aspirated 4.3 V6 (182 HP, 332 N•m), which met on other versions of SONOMA. It was combined with Quad-band “automatic” and rear wheel drive. The cargo platform was short, cabin — single or semi-double. Added rails on the edges of the cargo compartment, appliques on the doors and most importantly — retuned suspension with custom shock absorbers and a rear differential lock.

The most powerful of motors in the Canyon now — it’s aspirated V6 3.6 impact of 312 HP and 373 N•m, combined with an eight “automatic”. The Americans might put it, limiting other modifications. But it could use something more productive, for example, turboservice 2.7 (314 HP, 472 N•m) from a Silverado or aspirated V6 4.3 (289 HP, 414 N•m) from him (compared to the 3.6 he wins at the moment). In any case, you can expect stiffer suspension lowering, retuned dampers and various additives in the hardware list. Rear differential with automatic lock — in itself.

An example of a return to the past in the new phase we have seen recently, in April. This pickup Syclone SVE, created on the base of the Canyon and imitating very fast models GMC Syclone 1991 (in turn based on SONOMA). In a new interpretation of the legend appeared 461-strong Assembly 3.6 with driving the supercharger.

It is unclear whether the dare company to return the version of the ZRX in the system now, or wait for the alternation of generations of a pickup truck. Edition GM Authority reported that the current pair of fellow Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon will undergo a modest set of changes to the 2021 model year like a adjustments in the decor, the options, materials, finishes and the like.

The impending adjustment of the Canyon and Colorado, GM does not consider even a full upgrade or restyling. Nevertheless, the same Canyon is the modified radiator grille: it will become larger and merge with the openings in the bumper.

The new generation of this pair is expected only in the years 2022-2023. Fellows must jump from platform GM GM 31XX 31XX-2, slightly upgraded version of the previous “truck”, although previously heard the suggestion about a more modern VSS-T. The engines are partly borrowed from the previous generation, but there is a chance to add to the range of any naduvnoj of the Quartet.

Volkswagen t6,Volkswagen multivan. Под кампанию в России попали короткобазные Мультивэны, а вот в Европе дефект затронул и собратьев с названием Transporter, впрочем, по сути это одна модель — вэн T6.

Under the campaign in Russia hit rough terrain Multivane, but in Europe, the defect has also affected fellow with the name of the Transporter, however, in fact it is one model — van T6.

Van in the Volkswagen Multivan electric sliding doors and tailgate were insufficient seal between the plastic trim motor sliding door and a valance. Here can seep water (especially when pressure washing), and then she gets to the control unit of the electric drive.

Russian description of the defect is limited to this definition, and we found a similar opinion in Europe said that there is a possibility of erosion of the contacts due to a short circuit, and in the most adverse circumstances — and fire. In Russia, for this reason revoked 2490 of Multiview implemented in the period from 2016 to 2019. The machines will perform the necessary sealing of the sidewall. Download a list of VIN codes of vehicles that fall under the campaign by clicking the link on the website of Rosstandart.

The drive side door is arranged simply: electric motor, pulleys, steel cable.

Van sold in different variations as Multivan, California, Caravelle and Transporter in Russia, the leader of the segment (slightly more than disagree only gazovskih Sables de facto shortened the Gazel minivans). The latest product of the Volkswagen in special “crime” was observed. However, in February of this year, the car came under review because of the gas generator in the airbag, and in 2017 — again because of gas generators in arbagar and the seat belt pretensioners. Apparently, the van failed component suppliers.

Opel concept,Opel adac e-rally car. Спасибо раскраске, ведь она не даёт спутать прототип со стоковой Корсой. Новый передний бампер наделён расширенным воздухозаборником. На капоте (вероятно, углепластиковом) и задней двери установлены «быстрые» замки, ну и 17-дюймовые колёса тут непростые.

Thanks to the coloring, because it does not confuse the prototype with the stock a withdraw and their. New front bumper is endowed with advanced air intake. On the hood (probably carbon fiber) and rear doors have quick locks, and of 17-inch wheels then difficult.

Opel Motorsport division set out to build a rally car, whose price will be “significantly less than” 50 000 euros.

The length of the hatch has not changed (4060 mm), width and height added five millimeters (1770, 1440), and the wheelbase — two (2540 mm). Battery capacity is the same (50 kWh), the output of the motor also (136 HP, 260 N•m) actuator front.

Meanwhile, the suspension is replaced by combat (with rigid joints with Uniball), there is a Torsen limited-slip differential, mounted four-piston calipers with ventilated discs (332 mm front, 264 rear). The engine and transmission are protected, and the ABS, ESP and traction control disabled. There is a sprinkler system.
