  1. New Hyundai Santro spied testing

    Came across these two renderings showing what a cross variant of the Santor could look like. We've already seen other manufacturers bring out cross-hatch variants of their popular cars - Tiago NRG, CelerioX. Would be interesting to see Hyundai do something similar... what do you think? Source
  2. Royal Enfield unveiled the new Concept KX at the 2018 EICMA motorcycle show, which gets an all-new V-Twin powerplant. The ‘838’ badge on the engine could indicate that the new motor is an 838cc, liquid-cooled powerplant. Definitely see how the design pays homage to the original KX that was launched in 1938.

  3. Toyota recently took the wraps off updated version of its Fortuner TRD Sportivo SUV for Thailand. From the front, a big change is the bumper and grille surround. The previously blacked-out elements surrounding the grille give way to brushed-metal-finished trim while the blacked-out section under the grille is now body coloured. The bumper is new with a lower and wider central air dam with red highlights, a splitter running along the bottom lip and the prominent air vents on either side now house sleeker fog-lamp units and brushed-metal trim inserts. At the back, the trim running between the tail-lamps gets a brushed-metal finish, too. The bumper is also new with a noticeable, blacked-out lower section. It now features a faux-diffuser look along the lower edge and larger reflectors or rear fog-lamps positioned along the outer edge. The interior of the Sportivo 2 carries forward the black-and-red affair from the Sportivo.

  4. Here's the new Hyundai Creta Diamond concept revealed at the 2018 Sao Paulo motor show.

The dashboard features a dual tone layout with white shade at the bottom including the steering wheel and gear knob. The model also features larger 19-inch alloy wheels with 245/45R19 tyres.

  5. Rendering: Ford Ecosport facelift

    Remember the new Ecosport Storm that Ford had revealed earlier this year for South American markets? Came across this video showing it in action: This variant gets cosmetic changes + a four wheel drive system. In a bid to increase the model’s off-roading credentials, the suspension set-up has been revised significantly. Ford claims that this has resulted in a 15 percent improvement in shock absorption and a 40 percent reduction in steering wheel vibration.
  6. Kia Motors to debut in India soon

    Looks like Kia is evaluating the Ceed hatchback for India! Now in its third generation, the 4.3m-long Ceed would pretty much start a new large hatchback segment. This means it will likely be priced at par with or perhaps even higher than executive sedans such as the Hyundai Elantra. To make the offering more appealing, Kia will only introduce the hatchback in GT Line trim that gets sportier bumpers, exterior detailing in red-and-black, and large 17-inch alloy wheels.

The interior gets a sport steering wheel, metal pedals, and N-branded shifter and sport seats.

  15. Volkswagen has finally taken the wraps off its new smallest SUV, the T-Cross. It will be sold with two wheelbase options globally, but it's the longer variant that is headed to India in the future to rival the Creta, Harrier and Kicks. Found a pretty neat walkaround showing the SUV in detail: For more information on the new T-cross (including what sets it apart from its European cousin), head here: https://www.autocarindia.com/car-news/india-bound-volkswagen-t-cross-suv-revealed-410222
