Japan Issue: Honda CR-V

Japan Issue: Suzuki Kizashi

Humbled by the swiftness of their nation's recovery a little over a year after the killer earthquake/tsunami, we pay tribute to the Land of the Rising Sun. For this issue, we produced two separate covers featuring the CR-V and the Kizashi, both bound to be collector's items. So, what's so special about this issue aside from the two covers?

* Test drive of the new 1.6-liter Mitsubishi Lancer;

* The Big Test: Japan's pride (Honda Civic) versus Korea's emerging star (Hyundai Elantra);

* Japan's new dawn: How the automotive industry of the earthquake-rocked and tsunami-engulfed nation got back on its feet again;

* The life of a Japanese taxicab driver;

* A gathering of Japanese old-school cars;

* How to make your car look like an authentic JDM unit;

* The search for the Yamashita treasure using Toyota's Prius and Prius C;

* Traffic Stopper: Japan's drift queen;

* Shakedown: Lexus GS350 F Sport, Toyota Avanza, Subaru XV and Honda Brio; and

* A sneak preview of the new Mitsubishi Outlander.

Of course, there are many more features inside our very first Japan Issue. Grab a copy when it hits the newsstands this weekend. Still at P150 per copy.
