Greengrocer Koji Ueda has been espousing the virtues of "Kyo-yasai," heirloom vegetables of Kyoto, for about 50 years.
He tells customers how the Shogoin turnip, the Kujo green onion, the Kamo eggplant and the mibuna potherb mustard taste and offers tips on the best ways to cook them in front of his store.
As more and more customers move into the crossover segment, the less the segment is one-size-fits-all, or even three-sizes-fit-all. As such, Mazda has taken the opportunity at the Geneva Motor Show to offer a new, "just right" crossover to its lineup. The 2019 Mazda CX-30, as it's called, slots between the diminutive CX-3 and the compact CX-5 crossovers.
The CX-30 shares the "Kodo" (meaning "soul of motion") design language Mazda does so well, and the execution here is excellent, too. We love the long hood and simple but elegant curves, the way the light reflects off the sides in dramatic waves. Its no surprise that Mazda chose its Soul Red Crystal to show off the new model.
There’s hardly a better time to buy a car than when the end-of-year finance and lease deals start to come out.
This year the hot deal is over at Honda, where, as CarsDirect reports, you can lease a 2017 Honda Civic Si for the lowly sum of $199 per month for 36 months with $2,299 due at signing. Both coupe and sedan versions of the sport compact are offered at this rather enticing rate. As is customary for Honda leases, it comes with a mileage allowance of 12,000 miles per year.
We have been hearing about Bandai Namco's Tekken X Street Fighter game for years, and by now many have probably assumed that it has been cancelled. Back in 2015, the developers assured that this was not the case, although in 2016 it was revealed that the game is no longer in active development.
This means that while it hasn't been cancelled outright, it isn't actively being worked on either. For those wondering about the status of the game, the game's director Katsuhiro Harada revealed the reasons why they still have not gone ahead and launched it, and it basically is all about the timing.
