Exhibits by Mazda, Suzuki, FHI, Daihatsu, and three commercial vehicle builders
This report contains a summary of exhibits by Mazda, Suzuki, Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI, the manufacturer of Subaru automobiles), Daihatsu and three heavy-duty commercial vehicle makers (Isuzu Motors, Hino Motors, and UD Trucks) at the Automotive Engineering Exposition 2016 Yokohama.
Mazda showcased its newly conceived G-Vectoring Control technology. The company will start introducing this technology into its key models in the second half of 2016. Mazda also exhibited the CX-3 compact crossover SUV and the 1.5-liter diesel engine equipped in the SUV.
Suzuki showed a newly-developed full hybrid system, as well as a 1.0-liter K10C downsized turbocharged engine and two-cylinder 0.8-liter diesel engine that was introduced in India.
FHI exhibited the upgraded WRX S4 sports sedan, which went on sale in May 2016. The S4 embodies a new value of enabling more drivers to comfortably enjoy Subaru's state-of-the-art AWD sports performance with peace of mind.
Daihatsu exhibited the Cast series, which comes with a variety of exterior and interior colors. The company also showcased the Copen mini sports vehicle featuring a "Dress-Formation" changeable interior and exterior structure. This allows customers to change their outer panels based on their preferences for design, and other aesthetic details.
Isuzu, Hino and UD Trucks displayed diesel engines and transmissions for use in their heavy-duty trucks. Hino also exhibited the Dutro light-duty truck, which offers enhanced safety features in consideration of the increase in women drivers.
