  5. Infinium Toyota is converting 200 Innova MPVs into ambulance vans. These will be provided to MLAs, MPs and a few hospitals in Gujarat to aid in the fight against COVID-19. The retail price for this ambulance van is Rs 24.50 lakh, but Infinium is subsidising it by bearing cost between Rs 3 - 4.5 lakh per van, while the rest of the amount may come as a donation either from MLAs, MPs or by individual donors who may voluntarily sponsor it. The Innova ambulance van will come pre-installed with an oxygen cylinder, stretcher and other primary facilities.

  10. The Toyota Highlander now gets a new Bronze Edition in international markets. It will be available with two paint options - Cement grey (exclusive colour) or Wind Chill Pearl, and will get 18-inch five spoke wheels with a bronze finish. Inside, the cabin features bronze stitching, bronze illuminated door sill plates, the seats get a textured finish. Powertrain options remain unchanged.
  11. It's been a long wait for the second-gen Force Gurkha, but it finally looks like its launch may be around the corner, with brochure pics surfacing online. It may look familiar because it retains its predecessor’s boxy shape, but the new Gurkha has received a thorough revamp. It’s on the inside where the new Gurkha has the most significant changes. The interior is no longer barebones - – it has a dual-tone colour scheme, a redesigned dashboard, a touchscreen infotainment system and a new instrument cluster with a digital multi-info display. On the features list of the new Gurkha are a steering wheel with tilt-and-telescopic adjustment, dual airbags, ABS, rear parking sensors, central locking and power windows. There are four forward-facing seats (with individual reclining seats for the middle-row passengers) and a pair of jump seats at the back. The new Gurkha’s 2.6-litre diesel is a carryover from the outgoing model, but has been upgraded to meet BS6 emissions norms. It produces 90hp and 260Nm, and is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.

  12. Jeep's upcoming H6 three-row SUV, based on the Compass, is expected to be called the Commander in international markets.

  13. Renault's budget brand Dacia had revealed the Bigster Concept earlier this year and now leaked patent images offer a peek at the production-spec SUV. In production form, the Bigster will sit above the Duster in Dacia's global range and will go on to replace the Lodgy MPV in select markets. From the looks of the patent images, looks like it will stay quite true to the concept, with the only major changes being the wheels, the roof-rails, treatment of the D-pillar and the absence of the illuminated logo on the grille.

  14. After its split with Mahindra, the new Ford C-SUV is now likely to be based on the Territory that is sold in markets like China and Brazil. What will work in Ford’s favour is that the Territory platform has a similar 2,716mm wheelbase as Mahindra’s W601. The 7-seater will be larger, but the fact that it is similar in size should also allow Ford to keep alterations to the Pininfarina design down to a minimum. What could also help is that Ford Brazil has recently launched its version of the Territory. And this could prove crucial too, when it comes to sharing of systems and other technology.

The AX1 is expected to go into series production in Korea first with trial production already underway. You can expect it to make its way to India sometime in the future as a rival to the upcoming Tata HBX. Render source Spy shots source
