Just read that the Indian Ecosport got 4 stars in NHTSA ratings in 2019.
But is it the car we get to buy in India ?
I read somewhere that close to 150 alterations were made to the car sold in India that went for testing . And it probably isn't the same car sold in India . Is this true ? Shall be attaching that source from a post on Team BHP. Because I am considering to buy a compact Suv soon. Going for safety over ride comfort and features if I go for Ecosport. Don't want to go for the Mahindra engined Ecosport as I have had bad experience with Mahindra In the past. So is the Ecosport on par with say a Duster ? Or is it just a thick metalled version like Scorpio which cud deceive the image created if it goes to GNCAP testing in 2020 ?
The facelifted Toyota Vios (Or the Yaris, as we know it in India) has just been revealed in the Philippines. The most notable change to the mid-size sedan is its revised fascia, which features a new bumper, new LED headlamps and an updated upper grille.
Not much has changed on the inside compared to the previous model. Barring the new infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, the overall all interior layout and equipment remains untouched.

The production-spec Kia Sonet has been spotted completely undisguised ahead of its reveal on August 7. The photo appears to be from an ad shoot.
Over the past couple of days Kia has been released some teaser images, suggesting that the production-spec Sonet will carry similar design cues as the concept. The tail-lights are similar wraparound units with LED elements inside – the upper half contains the stop lamp while the lower bit has indicators and reverse lamp. Teasers also confirm it will sport an aggressive ‘Tiger Nose’grille and chunky front bumpers.
Bookings will commence in mid-August and the price and official market launch will happen in September 2020. You can head here for more info: https://www.autocarindia.com/car-news/kia-sonet-india-launch-in-september-2020-418127
The Almost Real Model's 2020 Land Rover Defender 90/ 110 scale models have just been released. These models are highly detailed models and are made in 1:18 scale. However the company also makes 1:43 scale models for other cars and we could expect them to do the same for the new Defender. I have attached some images of the 2020 Land Rover Defender 110 i came across online. What do you guys think of it and would you want to add one to your collection?
