2017 Tokyo motor show: What to expect

The 2017 Tokyo motor show is almost upon us, with Japan’s big show having slumbered since this time two years ago.

The 2015 Tokyo motor show gave us the tiny Toyota S-FR concept, Nissan’s Leaf-previewing IDS show car, the Subaru Impreza concept (now in production) and Viziv Future concept, Daihatsu’s quirky Nori Ori and Tempo concepts, and a host of others. Browse our 2015 Tokyo motor show page for more.

What’s to come this year? No surprise, it’s an entirely Japan-brand affair so far!

Mazda looks set to tease us with yet another rotary sports concept that might never go to production, Honda will unveil a sporty electric coupe with retro flair, Lexus has top-secret plans and Mitsubishi will show what might be its long-anticipated (if not favourably) SUV-styled Evolution successor.
