Since 2018 Honda N-Van
Fifth member of Honda's H-Family of kei cars, I take it? Nice to see them continuing to be dedicated to expanding the lineup. Is it supposed to be a Vamos and/or Vamos Hobio replacement, or something to compliment the Acty lineup, similar to how the Daihatsu Hijet Caddie (commercial variant of the Wake) compliments the Hijet lineup?

Is it just me, or does something seem off about the Spark 1/43 #318? 2018-05-13 02:24
2009-2014 BMW X6 M [E71]
Along with Bburago, Kyosho also has a 1/18 of this available. 2018-05-11 13:11
2007-2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR Series II
Also done in numerous paint schemes in 1/64 by Hot Wheels. 2018-05-11 03:59
2014 Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo
Other brands that have released this car in diecast form, for those who want references:

- Kyosho: 1/43 (Gunmetal, Ultimate Silver, Ink Blue)
- Hot Wheels: 1/64 (Silver)
- Tomica Limited Vintage Neo: 1/64 (Blue, Grey, White)
- Maisto: 1/32 (Red)

2013-2015 Chevrolet Silverado Mk.III [GMTK2XX]
I know there's no page on here for the previous generation Silverado, but the Majorette castings are of said generation, not this one.

This generation of Silverado has been replicated in 1:64 by Matchbox and Greenlight.
2018-05-10 18:23
2015 Infiniti Vision GT
Not France exclusive. The US market actually got these shortly before Toys R Us announced they were going out of business. I was lucky enough to get the complete singles, including this one, which was limited to one per case. 2018-05-10 05:57
2014-2017 Subaru WRX STi
Don't forget the plain blue debut version of the Majorette model and the Racing Cars series release. There's also the awkwardly proportioned Matchbox police casting, along with a handful of Tomicas, in case anyone plans to add them. 2018-05-10 05:55
2014-2017 Ford F-150 MkXIII
Still never understood why they went ahead with that 'The Beast' paint scheme, when the actual one from Geiger Cars is the previous generation SVT Raptor. I've got the plain one in grey in my collection. Much nicer looking. 2018-05-10 05:53
2012-2016 Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet (Coccinelle Cabriolet)
Never knew Majorette did the convertible version of this. All I've ever heard of was the GSR, which I own. 2018-05-10 05:50
2012-2014 Ford Mustang Boss 302 MkV [S197]
For some reason, I figured it was gonna be the Majorette version that gets listed here first. I've got that exact one in my collection, shame it doesn't have an opening feature like the brand's Challenger and Camaro castings.

I know that a few other brands have done this Mustang, too. There's a similar true 1/64 Auto World one, Maisto did a rather cheap (and somewhat oddly proportioned) version, Hot Wheels did the Laguna Seca version, and Greenlight did the racing version, the Boss 302R.

Since 2016 Mini Cabrio Cooper S
Euro-spec page, US-spec images...I don't get it. 2018-05-08 15:29
Since 2015 McLaren 570S
Not a bad start on the model cars, but there's others as well. TrueScale Miniatures makes a 1:43 scale resin model as well as a 1:18, Tecnomodel also has a 1:18 scale model. 2018-05-05 02:46
Since 2015 Jaguar XE S [X760]
Well, word has it that the ATS and CTS will be replaced by two new models with the 'CT' nameplating, specifically a CT3 and CT4 to replace the ATS (not sure if the 3 would be the sedan and 4 the coupe, similar to BMW, or perhaps the reverse), and a CT5 to replace the CTS.

It also seems like the Japanese brands are the only ones sticking to their guns with cars, along with crossovers and SUVs. Mitsubishi's sticking with the Mirage and Mirage G4 for the long run, even with just three CUVs alongside it in the lineup.

Honda's keeping a great mix in their lineup, with CUVs based on or closely related to their cars, but not at the expense of the cars (Fit/HR-V, Civic/CR-V, Accord/Pilot), plus a truck and a minivan (Honda being only one of two brands in the US offering a pickup and a minivan in their lineup, the other being Toyota, because I'm not sure if the Transit Connect truly fits as a minivan), and will likely benefit the most from other company's product cuts.
2018-04-28 01:34
Since 2015 Jaguar XE S [X760]
Ford's cuts are pretty much confirmed.

From what I've heard ONE of the three (300, Charger, Challenger) will get cut, with replacements for the other two coming in 2021.

I've heard about GM considering cutting the Sonic, Impala, Volt and XTS, but nothing about the LaCrosse or CT6. The XTS needs to go, anyway. It really doesn't make sense to have two similarly sized sedans in the lineup, even if one is FWD and the other RWD. Kinda similar to why Lexus is considering cutting the GS and keeping the ES.

Still, the automakers are gonna eventually kill the US auto market with crossovers and SUVs, especially when gas prices are on the climb once again...and, even after the summer season is over, they're not likely to go back down as much as they have.

2018 Everus EV
I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but this concept is clearly an EV version of the Honda Vezel/HR-V. 2018-04-27 05:12
Genesis (USA) Well, by 2020, they plan to introduce a coupe (possibly somewhat previewed by the Essentia) and two SUVs. They're actually selling quite well, and recently jumped to the very top of Consumer Report's vehicle scoring and vehicle reliability rankings.

Give 'em time, and they'll have an even bigger and better lineup.
2018-03-31 01:19
Since 2018 GMC Sierra Denali Mk.IV
Clearly, GMC is looking to revolutionize the pickup truck market with the new Sierra.

Two new GMC exclusive, industry first features available for the Sierra are the new MultiPro Tailgate, with six unique positions and functions, with a smaller tailgate portion that can be pulled down, while the rest of the tailgate stays in place, and the revolutionary CarbonPro cargo box, which is the first ever production pickup truck bed made with carbon fiber inner panels and floor. While the rest of the cargo box remains roll-formed high strength steel, the CarbonPro setup shaves 62 lbs from the standard bed's weight.
2018-03-02 04:17
Cupra In that case, we should spell smart with a capital 'S', even though the manufacturer uses lower case. See what I mean? 2018-02-24 02:17
Cupra According to the official website, it's CUPRA, in all caps.

www.cupraofficial.com/en/
2018-02-23 23:31
2018 Cupra Ibiza
Yes. SEAT is basically turning their high performance Cupra models into a separate brand, similar to what Volvo plans to do soon with Polestar. 2018-02-23 23:27
Seat It's official, SEAT's Cupra models are officially becoming their own brand. It was announced with the unveiling of the new CUPRA Ateca. 2018-02-23 04:28
Red Bull As of the 2018 season, the team is now known as Aston Martin Red Bull Racing. 2018-02-19 17:43
2016-2018 Honda Vezel RS
Shame they don't offer this on the US-market HR-V. Would make a very sharp Sport trim. 2018-01-26 23:59
Since 2014 Nissan Juke
Pretty obvious that the successor will be a localized version of the Kicks. 2018-01-10 16:22
1994-2000 Opel Tigra [A]
Question: We've got cars on here that aren't listed as being sold in Japan (XJ and KK Cherokee, Ford Explorer, Cadillac Seville and Deville, and this Tigra, for examples), but I've found commercials on YT for them from Japan, could they still be listed on the closest matching page? 2018-01-08 17:23
1992-1997 Chrysler Concorde Series I [LH]
Some of the commercials in '93 for the Concorde mentioned some of the same things, but there were multiple versions, longer and shorter, along with a few other different ads as well. 2018-01-08 16:50
1996-1999 Toyota Cavalier
Two videos of promotional advertising. One contains two ads, one for the coupe and one for the sedan, while the second is a single ad with both bodystyles. 2018-01-08 00:04
1992-1994 Nissan Altima (Stanza Altima) MkI
When introducing the first generation Altima, Nissan parodied two iconic Lexus commercials, 'Balance' (1989, LS400) and 'Ball Bearing' (1992, ES300).

In both commercials, they still remained complimentary of Lexus, but also showed that their affordable midsizer could perform just as well, all at a starting price of $13,000 (equal to a little over $22,000 in 2017).

A version of the 'Balance' parody was also made for the Hong Kong market Bluebird in 1994.

2018-01-07 20:30
1991-1996 Lexus ES Series II
Another iconic Lexus commercial, 'Ball Bearing' for the 1992 ES300. Became iconic to the point that Nissan parodied it in 1993 (along with Balance) to advertise the first generation Altima. 2018-01-07 20:23
1989-1994 Lexus LS Series I
Added one of the most iconic car commercials of all time, the one that started it all for Lexus, 'Balance'. 2018-01-07 20:15
1981-1983 Datsun 200SX Series II
In case anyone's wondering why I put the same commercial for both bodystyles of this 200SX, it's because both bodystyles were equally featured in the ad.

Also, I listed it as 1981 because that's the copyright date (seen seconds into the ad), even though it's listed on YT as a 1982 commercial.

That really only applies to the model year of the car.

Since 2017 Audi A8 Series V [Typ 4N]
Wow, wannabe Lincoln and Kia, they look like a cross between those on the Continental and those on the Optima, with perhaps a little Toyota Avalon mixed in... 2017-12-01 03:42
Since 2018 Fiat Cronos
I can't help but see a lot of Kia in the rear. 2017-11-30 05:04
Since 2018 Lincoln Nautilus
Really nice update and an actual model name instead of a trio of letters (hopefully the MKZ and MKC will follow suit in the next few years). 2017-11-30 04:10
Since 2018 Nissan Kicks
Replacement for the Juke, highly underpowered, with a naturally aspirated 1.6 that produces 125hp and 115 lb-ft of torque, pretty much all of it's competition here in the US has more power, with some models getting as good or in some cases better fuel economy.

Nice looking vehicle, but it's engine will likely make this vehicle less popular than it's predecessor...and it's guaranteed to be much more boring to drive.

Since 2017 Buick Regal TourX Series VI [E2XX]
Switched Canada to NO, as it's been confirmed that only the Regal Sportback will be offered there, making the TourX a US exclusive model (no word on whether it or the Sportback will be offered in Mexico yet). 2017-11-30 04:00
Since 2015 BMW 6 Coupé [F12]
Same for the US site. 6 Convertible, 6 Gran Coupe, M6 Convertible, M6 Gran Coupe, 6 Gran Turismo, and Alpina B6 Gran Coupe. 2017-11-07 04:24
Since 2015 BMW 6 Coupé [F12]
So is the Gran Coupe, too. 2017-11-06 15:55
Since 2010 Jeep Wrangler JK (Wrangler) Series III [JK]
Apparently, there will technically be two generations of Wranglers on sale for the 2018 model year, and current gen '18 Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited models are now being sold as Wrangler JK and Wrangler Unlimited JK, listed on the window sticker, as well as the model name marking on the side now reading WRANGLER JK.

Since 2017 Suzuki XBee
That is true, but when you look at how many similarly classified vehicles Japanese manufacturers have in their lineups, including models shared between manufacturers (which is all of them except Honda), it's not really that hard to see them co-exist.

Also, if Jeep can sell the Renegade, Compass, and Cherokee, all with overall dimensions that aren't actually that far apart from each other, Suzuki can have both this and the Ignis.
2017-11-01 03:14
Since 2017 Suzuki XBee
1 liter powered subcompact CUV apparently intended to slot above both the Hustler, which most of it's design is based on, and the upcoming next-gen Jimny, and below the Escudo.

While nearly all of the XBee is inspired by the smaller Hustler, the split 'floating roof' look of the rear is more like that of the latest Swift.
2017-10-29 21:58
Since 2017 Toyota Harrier Mk.III
Looking at the way other manufacturers are adding all of these similarly sized CUVs in the US market, I could see Toyota slipping this in-between the RAV4 and Highlander, perhaps as a premium higher-spec only model with only the hybrid and turbocharged 8AR-FTS powertrains available.

It would kinda be to the RAV4 as the Avalon is to the Camry.
2017-10-22 21:48
Since 2017 Toyota Prius PHV GR Sport Mk.IV
Gotta say, it's a pretty good looking Prius, and that's considering the regular PHV/Prime is good looking as well in comparison to the hideous regular current gen model.

Would be pretty cool if Toyota offered this here in the US as a Prius Prime SE or XSE.
2017-10-22 21:37
Since 2012 Venucia D50
Badge engineered Nissan Tiida/Versa. 2017-10-13 05:41
Since 2012 Roewe 950
Body styling looks like a cross of Toyota Avalon and Chevrolet Impala, car is actually based on Buick LaCrosse underpinnings. 2017-10-13 05:38
Since 2014 Gleagle GX7
On the outside, this vehicle looks to be a ripoff of the third generation Toyota RAV4, perhaps with a hint of either Honda CR-V or Volvo in the tail lights, but to be honest...if it's a RAV4 ripoff, they actually made it look better than the vehicle they ripped off. 2017-10-13 05:27
Since 2015 Dongfeng Fengdu MX6
Built by Dongfeng's joint venture with Nissan, this is a continued production version of the second generation Nissan X-Trail. 2017-10-13 05:17
Since 2016 Changan CX70
Pretty obvious that this is a Ford Explorer ripoff. 2017-10-12 18:34
Since 2018 Toyota Century Mk.III
The latest generation Century, the third such generation (plus the Century Royal). No revolutionary design, rather another evolution of the traditional Century look. Gone is the V12 engine, replaced by a 5 liter V8 hybrid system, essentially the same as under the hood of the new generation Lexus LS hybrids.

Overall size increases, with increases in length, wheelbase, and width.
