  1. The new Tata Safari has been revealed in its final, road-ready form, with production of the 7-seat SUV getting underway ahead of its launch in the coming weeks. Tata's also launched an augmented reality imaginator for the SUV, which offers the first look at its interior. It gets an Oyster White interior theme, and an ash wood insert for the dashboard. You can head here for more info:
  2. The next-gen Mahindra XUV500 has been spied testing yet again. Higher variants will come with a panoramic sunroof, something that can clearly be seen in these new pics. From what is known so far, it will be bigger, plusher and loaded with tech. It's also expected to have better driving dynamics + be powered by a new 2.2 diesel or 2.0 turbo-petrol engine.

  3. The new Tata Safari 7-seat SUV has been spied at Tata's production plant; the steel rims suggest this is a lower variant. Overall, it looks quite similar to the Gravitas show car that was on display at the 2020 Auto Expo, except for the new grille. Source
  4. Recently in conversation with Autocar India, PCA President and MD Partha Datta confirmed that Jeep is developing a sub-4m SUV for the Indian market. The next two years will see Jeep launch the Compass facelift, a 7-seat SUV and the locally assembled Wrangler and Grand Cherokee in India. The compact SUV will follow later.

  5. The Toyota Fortuner facelift has been launched in India, with prices ranging from Rs 29.98-37.58 lakh, and the SUV has already started reaching showrooms. This update brings more than just a refreshed look, inside and out. Just like the outgoing model, the Toyota Fortuner facelift, too, is available with a 2.7-litre petrol and a 2.8-litre diesel engine. The petrol – which makes 166hp and 245Nm of torque – has been carried over unchanged, and can be had with a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. The big change, meanwhile, is with the diesel engine – the 2.8-litre unit now makes 204hp, and while it produces the same 420Nm of torque as before when paired with the 6-speed manual, it produces an impressive 500Nm of torque in the Fortuner automatic, which gets a 6-speed torque convertor unit. Sitting at the top of the facelifted Toyota Fortuner lineup is the ‘Legender’ version, which has a sportier persona and is priced at Rs 37.58 lakh. You can head here for more info: Source
  6. Tata Motors has decided to resurrect the iconic Safari nameplate with its upcoming flagship SUV. Introduced at the Auto Expo 2020 as the Gravitas, the 7-seat SUV will be launched as the new Tata Safari, and will arrive in showrooms soon. You can head here for more info: Thought now would be a good time to see the new and old Safari side-by-side. What do you think?
  7. New images show the Hyundai i20 N out in the open for the first time. Based on the latest-gen model, the i20 N gets a 1.6-litre turbo-petrol engine making 204hp and 275Nm that's paired with a 6-speed manual. It weighs just 1,190kg, and can do 0-100kph in a claimed 6.7s, with a top speed of 230kph. Also part of the package are 18-inch alloys wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tyres, bigger front disc brakes, a retuned chassis, launch control and a mechanical limited slip differential.

  8. Jeep has released some more teaser images of the Compass facelift ahead of its official reveal on January 7. This comes only a few months after the Compass facelift's international debut, which brought refreshed interiors and exteriors. In terms of styling, the Jeep Compass facelift will feature revised headlights with integrated LED DRLs, an updated seven-slat grille with honeycomb-like inserts, a new front bumper with a tweaked faux skid plate and a larger air dam with new fog light housings. The SUV also get new alloy wheels. A big change to the interior will be the restyled dashboard with a new floating 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and new AC vents and HVAC controls that are positioned below it.

  9. 2021 Ford Edge crossover has been officially revealed. The front-end has been redesigned with a new grille, framing fog lights and more. Inside the centre of focus is clearly that large touchscreen infotainment system. This model is only meant for the Chinese market for now, but what's interesting is that it does offer some cues on what we can expect from Ford's new EcoSport and upcoming SUV based on the XUV500. What do you think of it? Source
  10. New spy shots show the interior of the Ford Equator SUV for the first time. The Equator is a new seven-seat SUV that is meant for the Chinese market. But it could very well make it to other markets (case in point being the Ford Territory, which is now a global model). The interior is actually quite similar to that of the 2021 Edge that was recently revealed. What do you think of it? Source
  11. Toyota has revealed the sportier Vios GR-S, which is based on the Vios (or the Yaris, as it is known in our market). This isn't just a bodykit, it also gets a 10-speed CVT transmission and sports-tuned suspension. The exterior is more aggressive with a new front bumper with a honeycomb mesh grille, a rear bumper fitted with an integrated diffuser, a black boot spoiler, side skirts, black side mirrors/door handles + 17-inch black multi-spoke wheels. Inside, it gets sports seats in a leather and suede combination with red stitching. There’s also leather on the steering wheel and shift knob. Source
  12. Hyundai's new micro-SUV - internally codenamed Ax1 - has been spied testing yet again. The new video offer a better look at the side profile. The new SUV will be aimed at emerging markets like India and Indonesia to name a few and will be positioned below the Venue, which is Hyundai's smallest SUV globally. It will rival the the upcoming Tata HBX, Maruti Suzuki Ignis and the Mahindra KUV100 in our market. You can head here for more info: Source
  13. First look at the next-gen Mitsubishi Outlander... looks like it was possibly spotted during a photo shoot. Looks like it borrows heavily from the Engelberg Tourer concept. It's also expected to be significantly larger than its predecessor. What do you think of it? Source
  14. Nissan has revealed the updated 2021 Armada SUV, which gets a new face similar to that of the Patrol. There are also bracket-shaped LED running lights at each corner of the nose and the grille is wider. The rear sports tweaked taillights and a restyled bumper. Inside, there's a 12.3-inch infotainment screen that replaces the previous 8.0-inch display. The instrument panel now has a 7.0-inch display too and the centre console has been redesigned. While we get Nissan's smallest SUV here in India, the Aramada is the manufacturer's largest SUV. What do you think of it?
  15. From what I've read, there were quite a few bureaucratic hurdles and tax disputes between the FIA and the UP government. Adding to that, this was a privately funded event, so finances were a big issue as well. Unfortunately, don't see F1 coming back to India unless the government decides to give the event some backing
