This was not a good idea. Mercedes-Benz builds great vehicles, but songwriting... not so much. The German company wanted to draw attention to their "Service" division. They are responsible for fixing your car when something isn't perfect, so the men and women in this department are important and deserve some recognition, but not like this...

That is right, the next-generation Mini was already seen during a photo shoot, so it is somewhat surprising that BMW (the owners of Mini) unveiled a new concept called Mini Vision. The small car was shown at today’s MINI Design@Home event and, of course, serves to show many design solutions that the production model will adopt.

This is unusual. Honda is announcing a new damper system that will have its premiere on the Civic Tourer, so they took this opportunity to show a little more of this new model. The only problem is that Honda decided to show it with camouflage, meaning they ended up showing almost nothing. I just hope is looks like the concept.

I was expecting a little more from the return of this iconic brand but it seems Nissan didn't want to put a lot of effort to it, so they pretty much added a few new parts to the Nissan Micra/March and called it a brand new model with a name inspired "by the first Datsun, the DAT-GO, launched almost a century ago in Japan".

The Opel Monza, which was the coupe version of the Senator, was built in the 70 and 80s, and achieved a large success. Today, Opel teased for the first time the Opel Monza concept, a car that shows us the evolution of the German brand design philosophy, and still has a few similarities between them, such as their large, glazed surfaces and low belt-line.
