  1. 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?
  2. Maruti Suzuki XL6

    I have just come across some images of Maruti's new XL6 people mover. The images show off the car without any exterior camouflage. The changes on the outside appear to include exterior body cladding, black alloy wheels and faux skid plates, besides these changes the rest of the bodywork is the same as the regular Ertiga. The XL6 as the name suggests is also expected to have a six-seat configuration with captain chairs in the second row. Maruiti is also expected to sell the XL6 via its premium Nexa dealerships. What do you guys think of the new Maruti Suzuki XL6? Image Source - gaadiwaadi.com
  3. BMW X7 India

    BMW's brought its range-topping X7 to India with a pair of six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines under the hood. The diesel is the familiar 3.0-litre unit developing 265hp and 620Nm while the petrol unit also displaces 3.0-litres and is good for 340hp and 450Nm. And there is plenty of goodies inside as well... 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with gesture control, multi-zone auto climate control, BMW's Laserlight headlamps, a three-piece glass sunroof and more.

This variant though is only arriving later in the year.

  5. I have come across a video of the new Renault Kwid facelift spied testing on Indian roads. The updated hatchback's design has been inspired by the electric Renault KZE that was unveiled at the 2019 Shanghai motor show. Renault is expected to launch the Kwid facelift by the end of 2019 in our market. What do you think of the refreshed hatchback?

  6. 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. An automatic gearbox will come a little while later, mostly with the introduction of the BSVI 1.9 diesel engine. Photo credit: Tharun Rajeev
