In China, "low fuel consumption and high quality" are the most intuitive feelings for many brands of Toyota and Honda. Both brands compete on technology and price. They are not equal in power. And in the year of 2017, these two giants also handed out an outstanding transcript.
Honda again won the annual championship of the Japanese brand in 2017, and the Honda brand and joint venture company’s own branded terminal sold 1,441,307 vehicles, an increase of 15.5% year-on-year. Among them, Dongfeng Honda sold 730,000 units in total, an increase of 22% year-on-year, while GAC Honda's sales totaled 714,200 units in 2017, an increase of 9.6% year-on-year.
Although Toyota took a hard time on the way to 2017, under the influence of the double-integration policy, several models such as the Land Cruiser, Prado 2.7L, and Crown 2.5L were forced to withdraw from the market, and Reiz models were directly discontinued. However, the overall sales volume is also steadily increasing. Toyota's cumulative sales in 2017 reached 1.29 million units, and its sales volume increased by 6.3% year-on-year. Among the two joint ventures in China, the actual sales volume of FAW Toyota was 693,000, and the actual sales volume of GAC Toyota was 440,000. Both have completed their annual sales targets.
So what will happen to the two giants in the next year. What benefits and new products will we bring?
There are fans in the background who often ask, what kind of selection should be made between Binzhi and XR-V. In fact, the two cars themselves are brother models, and there is not much difference. Mainly to see you like it, XR-V's appearance is rather tough, and the appearance of Binzhi is even more fashionable.If you are not in a hurry to use the car and you are interested in Binzhi, you can wait for the new one.
The new model will change according to the overseas version of HR-V information. From the recent exposure of the new HR-V Honda, the car's appearance details have been adjusted and upgraded, and the large U-shaped front grille style has been reloaded. The left and right sides of the full LED headlamp group has become more slender, in order to enhance competitiveness, grab more consumers, the new configuration should also be upgraded, and the interior and power, it is estimated that there will not be too much Change.
Whenever you speak of a mid-size car, you can never bypass the Accord and Camry, the same nationality of the two cars, but they have different personalities, but as early as last year's 11 In the month, Toyota has already launched a whole new generation of Camry in China, and this change of Camry is almost a change. It has indeed caused a lot of pressure on the cash Accord.So when will the new domestic Accord come? Everyone is looking forward to it now. The new Accord will have a higher configuration, but also a lot younger than the ninth generation models, the domestic version of the model will be designed to retain the original style of overseas models.
The new Accord is the most attractive 2.0T+10AT power combination, but according to the current information, the domestic new Accord temporarily only provides 1.5T engine (high/low power), low power version (Chinese / Low model) Maximum power of 177 horsepower, peak torque or 220 Nm; High models equipped with high-power engine, maximum power of 194 horsepower, peak torque of 260 Nm, with CVT continuously variable transmission, as 2.0T and 2.0L hybrid models will be introduced later.
A hybrid Odyssey
Although we don't know if the US version of the new Odyssey that was previously on the road test will be introduced domestic? Does the domestically produced brand new Odyssey use the US version directly? But I know that the domestic hybrid version of the Audi will use the same i-MMD hybrid system as the current Accord-Remix and the new CR-Vui hybrid, equipped with a 2.0L Atkinson cycle engine. , Power control unit, high-power motor, and large-capacity lithium-ion battery, in which the motor part is loaded with dual motors.
The arrival of the hybrid version of the Audis will undoubtedly give consumers more choices, not to mention the fact that Honda's i-MMD hybrid system has always had a good performance in the market. Strong and fuel-efficient. So I believe the hybrid version of the Odyssey will have even better fuel performance.

Seeing the development of China's new energy market, Honda is also based on resistance.

So more information about this car can only wait until the Beijing Auto Show.
The purely electric version of the XR-V is expected to use the same power system. Not surprisingly, the XR-V will use Honda’s latest family design language, which is in keeping with the new Accord and other models.
New Platinum Core
All new Accords are available. Is the new Platinum Core far? If you marketAs a measure of the success of a model, Sibo Rui's sales certainly cannot satisfy Dongfeng Honda bosses. In fact, from a product point of view, Si Platinum Rui is not bad performance, but in terms of reputation and popularity, the Accord is much higher than it, and the Accord is a global model, Si Platinum Rui is China's special models, so from the product In terms of hedge rate, the Accord is even better than Spiral.
Although there is no more news about the car at this time, it is believed that the car will definitely have a brand new family design, and it is expected to be equipped with a new 1.5T engine, matching the CVT gearbox.
New Corolla< /p>

In the middle of 2016, when it was changed, it also took a Chinese name “RAV4 Rong Fang”. In order to enhance competitiveness, the entire new generation of RAV4 Rong Fang is coming, due to the car. It is from TNGA to build, so the body weight will be lower than the current models, fuel consumption and handling have improved, and also expect to include a large number of active safety configuration including AHS intelligent lighting system.
