Pretty much like the VW Phaeton, the Koleos is a slow-selling model worldwide, but it's a huge hit in Chinese market, accounting for more than 90% of Renault sales in China. They might be building the second generation mainly for Chinese market.

2015 Mitsubishi Pajero facelift revealed in Japan
Back in 1999, Pajero fans were strongly against the V73 (aka V60) Pajero, which went to unibody structure. But it turns out that V73 and V93 (aka V60 and V80) are still very capable off-roaders. Similarly I can't see any reason to vote against the PHEV Pajero today.

2015 Mitsubishi Pajero facelift revealed in Japan
Why not a PHEV Pajero? Mitsubishi's PHEV achieved very impressive fuel efficiency in JC08 test cycle. Those Japanese automotive suppliers are fantastic at making hybrid powertrain. As an mechanical engineer I am really fond of the Grand Cruiser PHEV concept, a preview of the next Pajero. http://con...

The NX is already based on RAV4 which shares platform with Auris. The sub-NX model might be close to the Urban Cruiser. Acura is going to launch a China-only premium SUV based on Honda Vezel/Honda Fit.

Crossovers & SUVs overtake sedans in popularity for the first time
I personally would still prefer wagons or compact MPVs when choosing a utility vehicle. Who can give a reason to choose Tiguan over a Passat Variant at about the same price.

Three-cylinder engines with cylinder deactivation tech are on their way
I personally don't think the start/stop system can bring 30% of improvements, unless in an extremely favourable test cycle.

Three-cylinder engines with cylinder deactivation tech are on their way
3% is indeed a great lot improvements in automotive industry. A Japanese technology which can potentially save 15% of weight (a few grams) in a plastic engine cover is seen as very innovative in automotive engineering.

Three-cylinder engines with cylinder deactivation tech are on their way
As a graduate student in automotive engineering I completely agree with you. I am also thinking 3% of improvements is a great great lot when I was reading the article.

Three-cylinder engines with cylinder deactivation tech are on their way
Oh that's sounds almost impossible to me. Three cylinder engines have a crankshaft angle of 120 degree whereas two cylinder engines are in 180 degree. How can they change the crankshaft angle during deactivation???
