Suzuki SX4 Fuel Cell Vehicle to make debut in Tokyo

Along with the Swift Plug-In Hybrid Concept and the near-production, updated Alto, Suzuki will also unveil the SX4 Fuel Cell Vehicle at the Tokyo Motor Show. It has a General Motors-produced high performance fuel cell with a Suzuki developed high pressure hydrogen tank and a light and compact capacitor.

The capacitor helps to promote driving performance by recovering energy during braking and using it to reduce fuel cell loading under acceleration. The SX4 Fuel Cell Vehicle is currently under test on public roads in Japan. More juicy details will be released once the fuel cell car hits the stand at the event.

Volkswagen Golf R and Scirocco R

Can’t decide between a Scirocco R or a Mk6 Golf R? This promo video featuring both the cars won’t help you make that decision – both look equally good painted in the same blue colour scheme having a bit of fun on a race track.

Personally in terms of design I’m kinda leaning towards the Mk6 Golf R instead. How about you? That’s besides the fact of course that the Golf R actually has an all-wheel drive system while the Scirocco R still have to put everything through the front wheels.

With every generation there’s supposed to be improvements all-round but I think one definite part where the Mk5 R32 has an edge over the new Mk6 R is the fact that the R32 probably sounds so much better – there is just so far that a 4 pot can go. Wonder why they didn’t lump the 5-cylinder from the TT-RS into this baby instead.
