Luxury Cars – 10 Coolest Japanese Cars Coming In 2021
Even with the numerous obstacles that 2020 has been put through, many businesses had managed to swing through the year under continuous operation. The automotive industry, for example, was still able to produce insanely fast and beautiful cars even with the implemented regulations in many parts of the world. But as everyone grows more eager for the year to end, automobile enthusiasts are even more exhilarated for what automakers have planned for 2021.
Many local automakers have already spilled the tea on what they’re brewing for 2021. But Japanese automakers aren’t going to sit silently and watch other automakers build hype before the year even started. They also have their own entries to the 2021 market and they mean business. Here are just some of the coolest Japanese cars coming in 2021.
10 2021 Acura NSX Type R
Acura is one of the most incredible sports cars built by Honda. Other than bearing one of the most longest-lasting designs in automobile history, the NSX also has reputation for being a car that comes out perfect straight out of the factory. But aside from the 2020 NSX that buyers can get for $50,000, the brand will have two cars ready to take off later in 2021.
One is these is the NSX convertible. But what really takes the cake is the 2021 Acura NSX Type R. This update is set to arrive in showrooms in October 2021. Under its exotic looks is a magnificent 3.5 L that makes about 641 hp.
9 2021 Lexus LC 500 Convertible
The Lexus LC 500 is one of the most awesome sportscars built by Lexus. While not many Japanese cars are targeted at luxury, this sportscar from Toyota’s luxury division is one that can put the Europeans to shame.
Although there were people who expected the latest LC 500 update to be a supercar, many were still happy with how it turned out. Cars.com, for example, rates this luxurious convertible a flat five-out-of-five. The 2021 Lexus LC 500 Convertible comes with a $101,100 price tag and 471 hp under the hood.
8 2021 Lexus UX 300e
In the world’s ever-lasting chase for renewable sources of energy, it was about time that Lexus finally joined in on the EV trend. For 2021, they decided that an SUV body was the way to go and so the 2021 Lexus UX 300e was born.
Though this fancy vehicle won’t exactly be reaching American shores, it will land in its hometown’s showrooms sometime in early 2021. The Lexus UX 300e is expected to deliver up to a 250-mile range and have up to 201 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque.
7 2021 Mazda MX 30
For 2021, it looks like Lexus isn’t the only company ready to achieve a milestone. Apparently, Japanese automaking company, Mazda finally decided to leap from the typical cars that they’re known for and enter the EV market.
This all-electric SUV will come powered by a purely electric motor at the front powered by a lithium-ion battery. It gives the MX-30 up to 250 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque. Europe has already accepted pre-orders while the US market is bound to receive its stocks sometime in 2021.
6 2021 Nissan GT-R Nismo
If you know your cars then you most likely know about Nissan’s hottest performance car, the Nissan GT-R. Its looks alone signal that it means serious business. But if you’re not impressed, this hundred-thousand-dollar car’s performance is more than convincing.
It comes with an AWD transmission paired with a six-speed automatic transmission that will let you convert power to speed. To give you a rough idea, the Nissan GT-R Nismo carries a 3.8 L V-6 engine. It’s packed with up to 565 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque.
5 2021 Toyota GR Supra
Toyota is one of the most impressive and best-selling car brands in the US. With that knowledge alone, it’s easy to tell that they certainly have big things coming up for the next year. But aside from the updated models of their handful of trucks, Toyota also had been planning to update the Toyota Supra.
For the 2021 update, the Supra earns the “GR” name which means “Gazoo Racing”. Gazoo technically means garage. This comes with a turbocharged 3.0 L inline-six power mill that boasts 335 hp.
4 2021 Subaru WRX STI
The previous year of the WRX STI didn’t only have aggressive styling but it’s also one of the fastest Japanese cars ever made. For 2021, the Subaru WRX STI will be taking on a more electrifying, modern appearance. Though it will still carry its signature rallying looks, there have been minor changes to the front fascia that just makes the entire car meaner, more intimidating, and just overall better-looking.
While the last update carried a 2.0 L four-cylinder engine, the latest WRX STI will carry a 2.5 L flat-four power mill that could pour out 305 hp and 290 lb-ft of torque. The base model is expected to start at $38,000.
3 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition
The Honda Civic is not really the first car to come to mind when in search of a sporty, fast, or good-looking car. That is until Honda decided to make the 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition. Though it’s basically a trim, there’s no denying that this beautiful piece of machinery is worth more than a second look.
The 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition comes in three premium colors and a Phoenix Yellow for its Limited Edition trim. The expected base price for this model starts at $43,995.
2 2022 Nissan Ariya
Everyone knows that Nissan was one of the very first brands that decided to take the leap into the EV market. Though not a lot of people really loved the results, they have decided to take another shot. But this time, they’ll be entering the market with an SUV – the 2022 Nissan Ariya.
The Ariya is expected to hit the US showrooms sometime in 2021. It’s expected to have a driving range of up to 300 miles. Options are also available so customers can choose between the battery sizes as well as the transmission options.
1 2022 Subaru BRZ
Everyone knows the BRZ is the twin model of the Toyota 86. And even though Toyota hasn’t fully revealed what the 2022 Toyota GR 86 is all about, fans have already tied its features close to the 2022 Subaru BRZ.
The 2022 Subaru BRZ is expected to arrive in October of 2021 but there is already a generous amount of info about the model online.
