Daihatsu can also present standard-sized cars to the show , with two variations that are the Rocky e-Smart Hybrid subcompact SUV.
One model is a luxurious version dubbed the Premium one, while the other is named Crossfield which is a perfect name for the off-roading light it looks like.
A90 Supra and has already uploaded a video on social media that showcases some of the modifications.

The kit’s modifications consist of a lot of front-end modifications, from the spoiler on top of your front lip to the brand new nose cone.
A new hood design, a modified rear spoiler and VeilSide-branded wheel are also included in the kit.

Mitsubishi Motors will bring out two concept cars, including an electric kei car and a brand new Ralliart concept.

However, the Ralliart sub brand for performance was revived in May.
