  2. Honda just recently took the wraps off the new, third-gen HR-V. It also showcased the SUV with the 'Urban Style' package at the unveiling event. This accessories package comes with a new grille featuring hexagonal-patterned mesh. It also gets a front bumper skirt, side lower garnish, a more prominent tailgate spoiler, a rear bumper skirt and some more bits. Do you think this looks better than the standard HR-V? Here's an image for reference Source
  3. The new Honda HR-V (Vezel) has been revealed in Japan. While the third-gen HR-V still retains some of that SUV-coupe look, the styling is a big departure over its predecessor. Inside, the dashboard features a layered design with leather inserts running across the fascia dividing the unit in two. The free-standing central touchscreen comes packed with the Honda Connect connected car tech. Air-con controls (similar to those on the new City) feature lower down on the centre console. It will be offered with a conventional petrol and a dual-motor petrol-electric hybrid powertrain option. The conventional petrol model will be powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine which will be paired with a CVT gearbox. You can head here for more info: Source
  4. Royal Enfield has launched the updated Himalayan, with prices starting at Rs 2.01 lakh (ex-showroom, Chennai). This means it costs around 10,000 more than its predecessor. in terms of overall design, the bike remains largely the same as before. The most significant differentiation factor is the new colour schemes that the bike will be available in. These include the Granite Black and Pine Green colour schemes. It also features an additional pod on the right side of its existing digi-analog instrument cluster. This system is the same Tripper Navigation unit that made its debut on the new Meteor 350. Another change is in the metal frame that is mounted towards the front of the tank. You can head here for more info: Came across a few images of the updated Himalayan, finished in Mirage Silver.

  5. The Nissan Micra may have been discontinued in India, but it continues to live on as the 'March' in some international markets, where it has received a facelift. The styling is now more in line with that of Nissan's new models like the Kicks. It features that trademark V-shaped grille, halogen headlamps, 16-inch alloy wheels and LED tail lamps. Biggest change inside seems to be the the new 6.75-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with the new steering wheel. It comes with a 106hp, 1.6-litre petrol engine mated to either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. Note: This facelift is based on the previous-gen Micra and is being introduced for emerging markets. An all-new gen was already revealed some time last year for other international markets. Source
  6. Tata Motors recently launched the Tiago Limited Edition at Rs 5.79 lakh, which makes it cost Rs 29,000 more than the XT trim on which it is based. It comes with 14-inch alloy wheels finished in black. As this limited edition model is based on the mid-spec XT variant, it gets all the same safety kit and features. However, Tata has added on-board navigation, voice commands for the 5.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a rear parcel tray to the XT’s list of dual front airbags, follow-me-home headlights, 4 speakers, power windows, keyless entry, power folding and adjust for the wing mirrors and steering mounted audio controls, among others. Like the XT variant it is based on, the Tiago Limited Edition is only available in manual form – the 86hp, 1.2-litre petrol engine is paired to a 5-speed manual as standard. However, an AMT option is on offer in the higher XZA and XZA+ variants. Source: TheCarsShow by Arsh Jolly
  7. Toyota is gearing up to unveil the next-gen Land Cruiser 300 later this year. New spy shots of a camouflaged model offer a clear look at its all-new interior, featuring a rather large touchscreen infotainment system. Source
  8. New images show the Ford Equator SUV in full inside and out. The interior features three rows of seating and actually looks quite modern and luxurious. In fact, that touchscreen infotainment system appears to be quite similar to the one spied in the new Mahindra XUV500. Power comes from Ford's 2.0-litre Ecoboost engine. For now, the Equator is only meant for the Chinese market, but do you think Ford should bring it to more markets? Source
  9. Suzuki will be revealing the next-gen Hayabusa on February 5, but a leaked image from what looks like a brochure offers a glimpse of what changes to expect. From what can be seen in the images, it looks like it will still maintain its predecessor's iconic look, but feature a revised front fascia. A closer look also shows what could be dual-layer side fairing Similar to the Aprilia RSV4. Patent information from 2019 hints at a larger and more powerful engine, and rumours also suggest that it could get a DCT option.

Along with the shared underpinnings, the Kiger also shares its 72hp, naturally aspirated petrol and 100hp, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine options with the Magnite. However, the entry-level 72hp unit in the Kiger also gets an AMT automatic gearbox option. As with the Magnite, the Kiger’s turbo-petrol engine will be available with manual and CVT automatic options. Higher variants of the turbo-petrol engine also get drive modes - Normal, Eco and Sports - that alter the response of the engine, gearbox and steering. Renault will offer 6 colour options for the Kiger. In a unique move, dual-tone colour options will be available on all trims of the Kiger, though the Radiant Red finish is exclusive to the top variant. Renault has also confirmed that the Kiger will be ‘most affordable SUV in its segment’. This means it will undercut the Niaan Magnite's Rs 5.49 lakh base model. You can head here for more info:
