MINI renames the ‘Corona Spoke’ wheel for electric MINI SE

The MINI SE features a wheel design named the ‘Corona Spoke’, which wasn’t an issue when it was coined. Now though, the term ‘corona’ has a stigma to it due to obvious reasons. So, MINI has decided to rename it to ‘Power Spoke’. And quite aptly so, as the wheel does resemble our power socket, which is also the one used in the UK. With MINI being a British brand, well, it just clicks. A MINI spokesperson told CarBuzz, “This was done to ensure Mini remains sensitive to all those experiencing the w

New 2020 Toyota Fortuner facelift rendered

The facelifted 2020 Toyota Fortuner was caught undisguised on the streets of Thailand. The images were hazy at best but least it gives an overall impression of the exterior design. Nikita Chuyko has taken that impression and expressed it in renderings which are published by kolesa.ru. As seen in the rendering, the headlamps and bumper design are more angular and the front grille is slimmer. Personally, it actually looks like it was styled by Perodua which means Malaysians will adore it. Changes
