After a weak showing two years ago, the Tokyo auto show is back with a much stronger presence in 2011. It has moved to a new venue closer to downtown Tokyo, which promises more interest from both consumers and manufacturers. The 2011 Tokyo Auto Show is also a chance for the hometown companies to show their resilience after the devastating earthquake earlier this year.
There are some big debuts planned, none bigger than the expected premieres of the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ coupes. After years of teasing, it looks as if the two coupes are finally ready to reveal their final styling and specs. Another major reveal will be the Mazda Takeri concept. It's an early look at the next Mazda 6 sedan, a car that's no longer tied to a Ford cousin.
Other potential premieres include an all-new BMW concept car, a Mercedes-Benz city car concept and yet another new version of the Volkswagen Up! Look for our coverage starting on November 30 when we'll have blog posts, photos and more straight from the show floor.
