  3. I have just come across some images of the new Skoda Kamiq GT variant which is a China-specific model. Unlike the Kamiq slated to come to our market, which will be based on the MQB AO platform, the Chinese model is based on the older PQ-series platform. The Kamiq GT variant appears to sport a number of chrome accents all around the SUV, though it otherwise looks very similar to the standard car. What do you guys think about the Skoda Kamiq GT?

  5. Gazoo Racing has revealed a sportier version of the C-HR (called the C-HR GR Sport). In addition to the various cosmetic tweaks, this also gets a few mechanical updates including a new center brace + modified steering and suspension. The 19-inch alloy wheels also happen to be exclusive to the C-HR GR Sport.
  6. Spy shots: Hyundai Verna facelift

    Some more pics of the Verna facelift... this new set of images gives a better look at the interior. Compared to the more than significant changes seen on the car’s exterior, there aren’t many design or layout tweaks seen on the inside. Minor tweaks include a different interior shade and seat texture combination. However, the big news is the inclusion of a digital instrument cluster, which will soon become a common feature in upcoming Hyundai models. Head here for more info: Source
  7. New Honda Jazz spotted in India; Now Launched

    The next-gen Jazz has been leaked online ahead of its official debut at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show! It still retains some its predecessor's basic design cues, with the mono-volume, almost MPV-like profile, and a rising window-line with a prominent kink at the start of the front door. Spy pics indicate that inside, it will get a touchscreen sitting atop the centre console, a digital instrument cluster, and revised control surfaces. The cabin is also expected to be up on space and comfort, as compared to the current model. You can find more info here: Image source
  8. Last week
  9. The Honda Freed is an MPV sold in select Asian markets that shares its platform with the Honda Jazz premium hatchback. The carmaker will reveal the facelift of the second generation of the Honda Freed at the upcoming 2019 Tokyo Motor show, which will start next week. In Japan, the car is offered with an option of either a 129hp,1.5-litre petrol paired to a CVT automatic transmission or a 110hp, 1.5-litre hybrid which is paired to a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox. What do you guys think of the Honda Freed and would it make a good addition to Honda's India line-up?
  10. Looks like Hyundai is giving the Azera (Grandeur) a mid-cycle refresh. As seen in the spy pics, the sedan's front-end design has been almost completely re-designed. Inside, the console, dashboard and steering wheel seem to be new as well. Source

    Came across a walkaround of the RxL variant of the Kwid facelift, which is priced at Rs 3.83 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). This particular variant is only available with the 54hp, 0.8-litre petrol engine. And in addition to what comes as standard on the RxE, it also gets Remote central locking, body coloured bumpers, wheel covers for the 14-inch steel wheels, power steering, contrast wing mirrors, front power windows, single-DIN audio system with USB, Aux and Bluetooth + a 12V accessory socket (front).

    A new set of spy pics of the next-gen Honda City have surfaced online. These new images show off the rear three-quarters and front three-quarters of one of the test mules.

  17. Mahindra recently launched a new Bolero Power Plus Special Edition priced at Rs 9.08 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), which means it costs about Rs 22,000 more than the top-spec Bolero Power Plus ZLX. To the exterior, Mahindra has added new Special Edition decals, front and rear scuff plates, fog lamps, a rear spoiler with a stop light and new alloy wheels. The cabin of the limited-edition Bolero Power Plus gets new special Edition seat and steering wheel covers and carpet mats. Found this walkaround giving a closer look at it:
  18. Maruti Suzuki S-Presso spied testing

    I have just come across a video of a dual-tone Maruti Suzuki S-Presso, which appears to be a dealer level addition. This particular model is finished in black and orange dual-tone and sports the alloy wheel accessory. What do you guys think of the dual-tone S-Presso?
  19. Next-gen Hyundai Creta / Hyundai ix25

    Finally... a proper detailed look at the new ix25! What do you think of its design? Source
  20. As the Internet of Things catapults to new heights, Google is developing a full range of internal and external temperature controller, monitoring everything from blood sugar to blood chemistry. The list of once multi-million-dollar medical machines now being dematerialized, demonetized, democratized, and delocalized—that is, made into portable and even wearable sensors—could fill a textbook. Sensor Proliferation Sensors will not only transform healthcare and diagnostics. Any electronic device that measures a physical, quantitative value—light, acceleration, temperature, etc.—then sends that information to other devices on a network qualifies as a high accuracy temperature sensor. Sensors add intelligence to our appliances. But more importantly, they add hours to our lives. Consider that in less than a decade, when you run out of coffee, your kitchen cabinet will detect a shortage (cross-referencing monitor temperature probe data with your coffee-drinking habits) and order more. A blockchain-enabled smart contract will subsequently place an order, triggering an Amazon drone delivery directly to your doorstep. And of course, your very own Butler-bot might soon transport these freshly-ground beans from delivery box to cabinet, sparing you the trouble. If advances in computing power, AI, and networks represent the center mass of the digital revolution, then today’s sensor uprising is the outer edge of that revolt. Comprising the first part of tomorrow’s smart environment information-processing pipeline, new energy vehicles sensors are the data-gathering apparatus that provide our computers with the information they need to act.
  21. The Royal Enfield Bullet of the yore was a machine that appealed to only a certain type of bikers. These were men and women who actually rode long distances and into the sunset. For them the ride was more important than the destination and didn’t mind getting their hands greasy if something went wrong with the bike. These bikers were as wild as one could get while choosing the route but never the ones to break traffic rules. These bikers were not posers, unlike the ones who rode puny but peppy street bikes racing through the city streets with no regards for traffic rules. These bikers rode their Bullets with pride and the Bullet, then, really separated the Men and Women from the Boys and Girls. It was a quirky machine. You had to master the art of “bring it to life”. The de-compression lever besides the clutch was not just a piece of metal attached to a cable to lose the engine compression. It was an instrument to bring the piston to the correct position before you could kick-start the engine. The pedal for the rear brake was set for the left foot and gear lever to the right. Just above the gear shifter was small pedal to get the gearbox to neutral and you had to know just how hard or gently to foot-tap it to neutral. Then there was a rubber breather pipe that ran from the crank case to the small sprocket of final chain drive and made a low, smooth whistling sound. The old Bullet had many flaws but once you had ridden one all day, all night, long on the highway, seen passers-by smile at you when you thumped it to life, you fell in love with the bike. And of course this old bike had an exhaust that thumped in a way that the new one just can’t match. And that brings us to the new Royal Enfield Bullet/Classic bikes. These are more reliable, have much better quality, are easier to start (courtesy the electric starter), and, have the gear and rear brake pedals placed as is the norm on all other bikes. Today the Bullet/Classic enjoys a wider spectrum of customers. So far, so good. But then, the new ones have lost the quirkiness the Bullet/Classic brand deserved. It has become so normal in its appeal that it is also being bought by guys who are basically street racers and not true bikers. And unfortunately, are riding the new Bullets and Classics in the same way they rode their puny street bikes. Fitting louder exhaust end pipes, zipping rashly thru the traffic and jumping red lights. This has made some true blue Bullet enthusiasts walk away. I don’t want to be seen on Bullet/Classic standing at traffic lights next a street racer kind of guy also on a Bullet/Classic, who is constantly wringing the throttle, playing with the clutch lever and looking around to spot the traffic cops, so he can jump the red light. It’s good to have new technology but it’s not necessary to lose some quirks that are essential to keep the identity of such an iconic bike intact. I wish one day the Bullet/Classic is offered with gear shifter, neutral finder and brake pedals placed like those on the old one, have an amp meter and decompression lever even if electric starter is offered as an option. It need not offer blistering performance from naught to 100kph but the ability to eat an inter-state highway for breakfast.

  23. Mahindra XUV 300 AMT W6

    I guess that is good, especially in the crowded streets. Regards, Sere Smith
  24. Found these renders showing what the next-gen Mitsubishi Outlander could look like. A test mule of the SUV was recently spied for the first time and the spy pics indicate that will likely borrow a lot of elements from the Engelberg Tourer concept. Source

  27. Maruti Suzuki S-Presso spied testing

    The base trim of the S-Presso (Priced at Rs 3.69 lakh) misses out on some essentials... At Rs 4.05 lakh, the LXi trim gets air conditioner, power steering and sun visors. Found this walkaround giving a closer look at this trim:

    Rather interesting seeing the new ix25 side-by-side with the Seltos. Which one do you prefer?
