Citroen has released the first pictures of the 2011 Citroen C4 Picasso and the three-row seven-seat Grand C4 Picasso. Both the updated models will be unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.

The facelifted models come with a re-designed front end. Both the cars will be coming with the company’s new logo on the grille and LED daytime running lights. It also comes with revised tail lights and some interior materials are also getting changes.

The C4 Picasso comes equipped with Citroen’s e-HDi technology which incorporates emissions busting features such as Stop/Start technology and a regenerative alternator.

The Citroen C4 Picasso facelift will be able to cover 100 Km on just 4.4 liters of fuel (5.0 liters/100 Km for the Grand C4 Picasso facelift) while CO2 emissions have dropped at 125 grams per Km (130 g/Km for the Grand C4 Picasso).

New spy pictures of the 2012 Mercedes B-Class have emerged. The prototype has a strong resemblance to the BlueZero concept which debuted at the North American International Auto Show last year.

The 2012 Mercedes B-Class will be coming with a longer wheelbase, a Mercedes-Benz GLK-like grille, a panoramic glass sunroof and a tailgate-mounted spoiler. We also get a peek of the interior from one of the photos. But, unfortunately, we only get to see the rear seatbacks and the front armrest.

The new 2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class will be sportiest yet as a high-performance AMG variant was confirmed by the tuning arm’s outgoing boss Volker Mornhinweg late last month. AMG currently offers V-8 engines, but for the B-Class a new specially tuned four-cylinder engine will be developed.

The current Mercedes-Benz B-Class has enjoyed reasonable success in most of the markets. But the next-generation model due in 2011 is expected to sell in even higher volumes.

Hyundai has introduced a new sub-compact family sedan concept RB at the 2010 Moscow International Motor Show. Production version of this concept car, which is basically a repackaged Verna / Accent, is scheduled to begin at Hyundai’s first full-cycle plant in Saint Petersburg, in January 2011. It will join the Hyundai lineup in the spring of 2011.

The car comes with redesigned bumpers, grille, hood and headlights. It will be powered by Hyundai’s new 1.6-liter or 1.4-liter Gamma petrol engines.

By replacing the old Alpha engine with Gamma, the sedan promises more power and torque, as well as best-in-class fuel economy. The estimated power and torque of 1.6 Gamma are respectively 124 PS and 156 Nm, while those of 1.4 Gamma are 107 PS and 135 Nm.

First pictures of the Honda Fit / Jazz Hybrid have been released and it will make its world debut at the Paris Motor Show in September.

The car will be driving in with some minor styling changes which include revised headlights with a blue surround, clear rear lights, new grille, revised bumpers and a chrome tailgate garnish.

It will also be available in a range of existing colours plus a bespoke Lime Green metallic. Inside, the cabin has a fresh look with darker dashboard, which contrasts strongly with the blue lighting of the dials and dashboard instruments. There is also optional leather upholstery.

The car will feature the same engine as the Honda Insight; a 1.3-litre i-VTEC engine combined with a CVT gearbox, with an electric motor sandwiched between the two. The car will be capable of running on the electric motor alone under some medium and low speed conditions. The hybrid version will go on sale in the UK in early 2011.

Leaked image of the 2012 Nissan GT-R is up and running in the web and the car is expected to be unveiled later this year. This comes about two months after some spy pictures had revealed one of the two Nissan GT-R prototypes doing some tests at the Nurburgring circuit (in Germany).

The latest photo reveals that the 2012 Nissan GT-R will be coming with minor changes. This includes a modified grille, lighter wheels, LED daytime running lights and a rear diffuser which is said to increase downforce by 10%.

There will also be two new color choices: Aurora Flare Blue Pearl and Nebula Opal Black. The car will be coming with the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine. We can expect some minor modifications which should enable the engine to produce more than 485 hp (492 PS / 362 kW) and 434 lb-ft (588 Nm) of torque.
