  2. Volkswagen is readying another update to its ageing Polo and Vento range in the Indian market. This time, the refreshed Polo will not get just cosmetic tweaks, but will also see mechanical changes. A new set of images surfaced online give us the best look at the upcoming Polo and Vento. First up, the updated cars get new front styling which is quite similar to the high-performance limited edition Volkswagen GTI hatchback. Additionally, both cars get alloy wheels with grey finish and other minor cosmetic tweaks inside out. Under the hood, the TSI variants of the Polo and Vento will get a new BS-VI compliant 1.0-litre turbo-petrol unit replacing the 1.2-litre motor and also the 1.6-litre MPI petrol engine. The new VW 1.0-litre TSI motor is from the EA211 series and is likely to come with a 94hp as well as a 115hp version, depending on the model. Apart from the Polo and Vento, this new engine will also see duty on the Skoda Rapid in future. This new engine will be locally assembled in India as part of the brand’s India 2.0 strategy that also includes market introduction of future models like the Volkswagen T-Cross SUV and the Virtus sedan. While the made-for India SUVs from VW Group India (T-Cross and Skoda Kamiq) will use the 1.5-litre TSI EVO engine, the smaller 1.0-litre TSI motor will power the Volkswagen Virtus sedan that will come a little later to replace the Vento. What are your opinions on the Volkswagen Polo/ Vento update? Image Source

  9. I have been in love with the Mercedes Benz since childhood and have waited all my life to get a hands on its steering wheel.

Cheers to rich life!

  15. Isuzu is going to be launching the V-Cross facelift launch soon and the first batch of vehicles has already started reaching dealerships. It appears that Isuzu will continue to equip the V-Cross with 2.5 litre engine and manual gearbox. It will likely be priced around Rs 75k more than the outgoing model.

  18. Mahindra XUV300 NEW spy pics

    Autocar India's put up its review of XUV300 diesel AMT
  19. Suzuki Jimny ! This is the right time

    Wow, these Jimny's look quite convincing. At a glance, they are easy to confuse with actual three-door G-wagons, though sadly Mercedes no longer builds three-door iterations of the G-Wagon. This just proves how much potential the Jimny has in the modification department and I hope it makes its way to our market, the sooner the better.
  20. Revolt Motors has just revealed its first electric bike for India, the RV 400. You can pre-book the bike on Amazon for an amount of Rs 1,000.

  27. BS6 Complaint Vehicle available in India as of now

    It's a last push to get rid of the unsold inventory. There is also a plea in SC to allow sale of BS4 vehicles till June 2020 to facilitate sale of vehicles produced till 31 Mar 2020 With the SC earlier ruling that only BS6 vehicles will be registered post 1 April 2020 , would these vehicles that are BS4 be registered as BS6. I believe registration of BS6 vehicles as BS4 is foolishness as would be registering BS4 vehicles as BS6 A deliberate attempt to push unsold inventory of BS4 vehicles and also giving some headroom for sales of products of manufacturer's who have invested a lot in creating new engines , sadly these engines can't be sold post April 2020 , so a state of ambiguity has been created by certain sections with vested interests. Better to hold off purchases till April 2020 if you are someone who does not want to get fleeced either ways.
  28. BS6 Complaint Vehicle available in India as of now

    It's good to see manufacturers starting to roll out BS6 compliant vehicles. However, they will still get registered as BS4 in RTO's until 1-Apr-2020. Also availability of BS6 fuel is an issue out side Delhi-NCR, so owners should watch out for this.
