Nissan unveils avatars: virtual reality companions for autonomous cars

Japanese carmaker Nissan has unveiled virtual reality (VR) passengers to keep drivers company in autonomous cars during long journeys. In one of the most bizarre media presentations during the 2019 Tokyo motor show, Nissan demonstrated how passengers could appear in thin air, giving lonely drivers someone to talk to whether they are struck in traffic or on a weekend drive.

Subaru WRX STI EJ20 Final Edition unveiled

The Subaru WRX STI EJ20 Final Edition, with its soon-to-be pensioned off engine, made its debut alongside the far more modern Levorg Prototype at the 2019 Tokyo motor show. Based on the WRX STI Type S, the Final Edition is powered by a EJ20 2.0-litre turbocharged four-pot boxer engine tuned to produce 227kW of power and 422Nm of torque. All of this is, naturally, delivered to all four wheels via a six-speed manual transmission.

Nissan Cube officially ruled out for Australia

The Nissan Cube might be a cult hit in Australia thanks to thousands of ‘grey import’ used cars across the country, but that’s not enough to convince the Japanese giant to import the box-shaped hatchback as a brand-new model for local showrooms. The Nissan Cube will remain a Japan-only car because the cost of bringing the tiny vehicle up to Australian and European safety standards has been deemed prohibitively expensive.
