OK, Subaru, we get it: Wagons “don’t sell” in the U.S. because consumers appetite “SUVs” or whatever. Fine. But it’s acutely abrupt to body and appearance a about production-ready additional bearing of the Levorg wagon, which still looks like a WRX base wagon and is very, actual cool. Fortunately, it does acquire that antic name — a aggregate of LEgacy, ReVOlution and TouRinG — to abate the draft a bit.
Features of the Levorg that apparently will accomplish it to the U.S. are the adapted adaptation of Subaru’s EyeSight assurance technology and possibly its new turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. The Levorg’s on-sale date set for some time in 2020 additionally portends an adapted WRX at some point in the U.S. in the abreast approaching (finally).
The glow-up is real, folks, and the Toyota Mirai Abstraction is proof. What was already a absolute fugly hydrogen fuel-cell auto is now … good-looking? At the actual least, it’s not claw-your-eyes-out abominable anymore. The Mirai Abstraction has some actual Lexus-like administration cues and smooth, swoopy curves breadth there already were aciculate and bulging angles.
We’re acceptable to see one in the U.S., but the hydrogen refueling basement charcoal ailing developed alfresco of California and accessible fears still abide about the assurance of hydrogen as a ammunition source, so these will be few and far amid — alike in California.
Much wilder than the Mirai Abstraction is Toyota’s e-Racer, a single-seat electric abstraction car that brought a accomplished acquaintance to the appearance floor. Don a (virtual) custom-fitting antagonism clothing and put on glasses to booty you to a basic racetrack and acquaintance article of what it’s like to drive that accurate course.
The e-Racer is acutely not authoritative it into assembly any time anon (or ever), but it does allege to a bit of Toyota’s eyes for the approaching of the automotive industry. While best of its electric abstraction cartage acquire been autonomous, multi-occupant vehicles, there’s still a abode in the approaching for a driver-oriented car. For those of us who adore alive — or watched “The Matrix” at a determinative age — that appearance is reassuring.

Definitely not advancing to America any time soon: the WakuWaku from Toyota-owned Daihatsu, a cast that hasn’t been alien to the U.S. back the aboriginal 1990s. Called “a mini-crossover that opens up new spheres of enjoyment,” the WakuWaku feels like a ashen Honda Element, with fun and blue accumulator systems that accommodate a baggage alcove chip into the roof. It additionally seems to acquire a breach liftgate that converts the lower allocation into a footfall to adeptness the roof baggage accumulator or, as some images of it suggest, a bench for alteration into things like ski boots.

Suzuki additionally ancient the U.S. market, admitting abundant afterwards than Daihatsu, and that seems like a abashment afterwards attractive at the Waku Spo. Suzuki aimed to actualize a multipurpose — and, it believes, multigenerational — car with a about-face that changes the concrete agreement of the car, from the avant-garde fascia to the rear bear and burden breadth to the agreeable displayed on the dashboard. The best detail on the Waku Spo? The bequest fender-mounted side-view “mirrors” (though they are video cameras now).
The Ariya Abstraction electric agent from Nissan looks abundant afterpiece to production-ready than some concepts at the show. It alike has ancillary mirrors instead of the added archetypal show-car ancillary cameras — or alike annihilation at all on abounding concepts.
The Ariya has the looks of a avant-garde SUV with a contour evocative of the Tesla Model X and rear administration that would attending appropriate at home on an Audi e-Tron or Q8. The face of the Ariya is 100 percent Nissan, however, with a affected booty on the automaker’s signature V-Motion grille. Inside is conceivably too futuristic, however, with best of the controls application haptic blow instead of acceptable buttons or knobs. At atomic there’s still a alpha button and a bulge to ascendancy the infotainment and concrete altitude controls.
An all-electric SUV isn’t absolutely a groundbreaking abstraction these days, admitting Nissan adeptness barrier its bets by authoritative a assembly Ariya accessible in electric or internal-combustion variants.
When I aboriginal wrote about the Mi-Tech Abstraction from Mitsubishi, I didn’t apperceive its name and was abashed by the description that it “delivers unparalleled alive amusement and aplomb over all area in ablaze and wind.” Wind can be article of a hazard while driving, and so can ablaze if you don’t acquire sunglasses, I guess, but are those absolutely the arch obstacles adverse drivers?
Turns out I wasn’t cerebration like a Jeep owner. The Mi-Tech Abstraction is a roofless, doorless, off-road-focused constituent amalgam SUV, and it looks fun. Mitsubishi says it has “Dynamic Buggy Type Design” and I’m all for the arbitrary styling. Is there a bazaar for a assembly version? Apparently not, but the bunched powertrain, electric four-wheel drive and avant-garde assurance tech adeptness drift into approaching assembly Mitsubishis.

Batteries beneath the attic additionally accord it a low centermost of gravity. It can additionally accomplish apart and alike has a abutment drone. Because, you know: It’s The Future.
The autogenous appearance a driver-focused cockpit — Lexus calls it “Tazuna” — that uses aggrandized absoluteness and action ascendancy to abode agent controls in the driver’s acreage of vision. The avant-garde commuter bench is aggressive by a capital seat, with the commuter accepting their own awning with action controls. Rear cartage get a bottle roof that displays aggrandized absoluteness or video agreeable and seats that cast to the occupant. All seats acquire arch abstemiousness speakers that accommodate noise-canceling technology. And wherever possible, the autogenous uses acceptable materials.
With administration that looks like an acute change of the LC 500, capital autogenous accessories and a able drivetrain — Lexus claims the LF-30 can adeptness 62 mph in 3.8 abnormal — let’s aloof achievement the apple makes it to 2030.
