The new Nissan Tilda (aka Versa) just bowed in Shanghai. This is the company's best-selling global model because it's not a bad drive, the looks are passable, and it's cheap. Here's to another generation of inoffensive mediocrity!
There are no details in the press release for the sketch of the impending (spring 2012 production target) Infiniti JX other than telling us it's a "7-passenger antidote to the ho-hum luxury crossovers that are out there right now" but then going on to say it has "seating flexibility" and "next-generation telematics."
Ignore the press release that talks up the "coupe-like styling" and how it has "the sportiest and most progressive design in its segment." We all know the truth just by taking a good look at the 2012 Audi Q3. It's a crossover. And if there's one thing Audi needed, it was yet another crossover.

Today, Ford Australia blasted this teaser sketch of the next-gen 2011 Territory into the ether. If you're not familiar with Aussie crossovers, this one's been based on the rear-drive Falcon platform. It advises you not to order the salmon.
If this isn't the new Elantra, then can someone please tell us why Hyundai's Dan Bedore is toilet-papering a Saturn? Or, maybe Bedore knows this is the only way we'll write about the new Elantra. Well played. [via Hyundai]
