2016 Summer Product Unveils (Part 4)

Alexander Carabitses

I'm back with some more recent product unveils the are worth mentioning, enjoy...

2017 Nissan Serena:  While I realize that it's completely pointless to even mention a minivan that's exclusive to the Japanese market, it is important to note that it features the brand's new self driving technology, called ProPilot. This feature will be available on other revised Nissan's in the future.

2017 Nissan Murano Hybrid: Nissan killed off the Pathfinder Hybrid last year, and rumor has it that there were still some powertrains left in inventory, 600 to be exact.  And these 600 powertrains are making their way into a limited edition Nissan Murano Hybrid that most people will never know exists.

2017 Fiat Quobo:  A few weeks ago I mentioned that Fiat had released a facelifted version of the Quobo cargo van.  Now we have the passenger version that is pretty much the same.

2017 Mazda 3:  The Mazda 3 lineup has just been refreshed, but one could never tell by simply looking at it.  The exterior tweaks are very subtle, while most of the differences are under the hood, specifically, the G-Vectoring Control system.  This system cuts the delivery of engine torque in appropriate situations.  Beyond that, everything else on the car is down to a few minor revisions.

2017 Mercedes-Benz CLS final Editions:  Believe it or not, this is the final year for the second generation CLS, so Mercedes is capping off this generation with a pair of special edition variants that offer a few unique visual cues inside and out.

2017 Holden/Chevrolet Colorado and Trailblazer:  GM has just given the global Chevy/Holden Colorado (not the one sold in the US) a refresh.  There's loads of new connectivity features and interior upgrades, while GM has also gone to work to make the refreshed model look more like the version that's sold in North America.  The Trailblazer has also received the same host of upgrades.

Ford Mustang 'Ole Yeller:  This one off GT350 is meant to pay homage to the P-51D airplane.  The only thing that sets it apart from any other GT350 is the body kit.

2017 KTM X-Bow: Does anybody remember the KTM X-Bow? Neither do I, but it has just been given a refresh that mostly encompasses changes that have been made to the front and rear fascias. No word on any performance upgrades just yet.

2017 Aston Martin Vantage V12 S Spitfire 8:  We have yet another airplane tribute car, as this Aston Martin is honoring England's own Spitfire 8 aircraft.  Once again, the only differences between this car and any other Aston Martin Vantage is a slightly unique body.

2017 BMW 1-Series sedan:  First things first, this new 1-Series sedan is only going to be sold in China.  However, other markets are expected to get the 2-Series Gran Coup√© that will be on sale eventually.  Nothing is actually known about the car, other than the fact that it shares a platform with the X1, and given that this is a Chinese exclusive, I really don't care about the specifics.

Thats's all for now.  I will hopefully have another editorial up soon on PSA's plans to return to the US fairly soon.  Until then, thanks for reading and have a good week.
