Welcome to the start of a new series diving into the technical side of Lexus vehicles, presented in collaboration with Lexus International.
All-new for the flagship LC 500h coupe and LS 500h sedan, the Multi-stage Hybrid system is the sixth generation of hybrid vehicle (HV) technology from Lexus. The entire system is all-new, from the front of the engine through the gearbox, and all the way back to the rear drive axle.
Its blip on our radar screens may proportionately be no larger than the tiny cars for which it is known, but Daihatsu has a long history in the automotive industry, stretching way back to 1907.
That gives it quite a back catalog to draw on, and draw it has with the small yet stylish DN Compagno concept, unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show this year.
Honda is returning to Austin City Limits Music Festival for its 9th year as a sponsor with some of ACL Fest's most highly anticipated acts on the Honda Stage, the Honda x Waterloo Records Artist Signing Stage, a special collaboration with pop artists DABSMYLA and their custom-designed Civic Hatchback, as well as the return of the "Hail-A-Honda" rideshare service providing complimentary rides to ACL Fest attendees.
The Honda Stage returns to ACL Fest for 2017 with some of today's most popular artists including headliners Chance The Rapper, The xx and Gorillaz, along with artists such as Run The Jewels, Cut Copy, Glass Animals, and The Revivalists. The full Honda Stage line-up is available at http://aclfestival.com/schedule.
Heads up gamers, if you're looking forward to being able to play Street Fighter V in a new location or with new costumes, you'll be pleased to learn that Capcom has announced that come April 25, they will be adding the remastered Thailand stage as well as introducing three premium school costumes for Ryu, Chun-Li, and Jun.
For those who are wondering what so special about this Thailand stage, well basically it is where players were first introduced to the iconic Street Fighter villain M. Bison in Street Fighter II, and this is basically a remastered version of the stage from back in the day in all of its new graphics glory, which we have to say looks pretty good.
