  1. The interior of the MG One SUV has been revealed at last! It features a two-part main display. The MG One was unveiled earlier in two versions - Fashionable and Sporty – which are further characterised by two distinct paint shades – Bubble Orange and Wilderness Green. Both versions of the MG One feature a three-dimensional grille, but the radial pattern on Fashionable gives it an aggressive look, while Sporty features a more sophisticated and comparatively subtle grille design.

  14. The updated Ford EcoSport has been spied testing once again.

  15. Hyundai has taken the wraps off the Elantra N, which is powered by a 276hp, 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine. The engine comes mated to either an 8-speed wet dual-clutch transmission or a 6-speed manual gearbox, driving the front wheels. In the N Grin Shift mode and with launch control, the boost pressure from the engine in increased, taking power output up to 285hp, which gives the Elantra N a 0-100 kph sprint time of 5.3sec. The Elantra N shares a lot of its underpinnings with the Hyundai i30 N hot-hatch and is even called the i30 N sedan is some markets like Australia.

  16. Artist sdesyn has rendered his take on what a high-performance version of the new Tata Safari would look like. In his own words: "This concept showcases an adjustable suspension where it can be lowered for a more sporty ride. Sitting on Rotiform LAS-R rims rebadged with the Tata logo. The car comes with a paint job inspired by Porsche’s very own Carmine Red. All the chrome has been painted to gloss black as well for a super sporty look." What do you think of it? Source
  17. DC Design (DC2) has revealed a 6x6 version of the latest-gen Mahindra Thar. In addition to the extra set of wheels, this also an extended rear overhang. The interior gets some redesigned bits and sporty seats. Engine and transmission options for this will remain the same as that of the standard Thar in India. DC is offering custom colour and trim options, though. What are your thoughts on this?
  18. The Sherp N is an all-terrain vehicle capable of transporting loads and people to places where conventional vehicles would flounder. Essentially an ATV, or UTV as the company calls it, the Sherp is capable of traversing a multitude of terrains including on water. This comes thanks to its disproportionately large tyres that act as floatation devices on water and give the vehicle near non-existent overhangs. Don’t expect to get anywhere fast though as top speed is 40kph on land and 6kph on water. Also there’s no conventional steering wheel. It's steering is the same as a tank via braking the wheels on one side. Sarbloh Motors is looking at bringing this to India for use in defence, disaster relief, border patrol.
  19. Tata Motors is all set to launch the Altroz, Nexon, Nexon EV Dark Editions as well the updated Harrier Dark Edition tomorrow. From the looks of it, cars have already started arriving at showrooms. What do you think of it?
