  1. India's most loved scooter maker lovingly called Hamara Bajaj who made legends like the Chetak and Priya is all set bring an all new scooter into the Indian market. This news is really exciting. Going back to these roots was inevitable at some point. Rajiv Bajaj is said to have stated that the company may explore and ride down this route again, as and when it decides the time is ripe. That’s happened now, for we can share confirmed news that Bajaj are burning the midnight-oil developing an all-new, exciting automatic scooter for India. It’s still early, with little information out in the open, but do expect contemporary, modern styling with universal appeal on the next Bajaj scooter, as well as an upmarket demeanor that will finally bring enthusiasts their scooter option that has barely ever existed here. In trademark Bajaj style, this upcoming scooter will stand out from the crowd, providing more than the current crop of Indian scooters, with healthy specifications including telescopic fork front suspension, as also an ample feature list. Bajaj’s upcoming scooter will be powered by a four-stroke engine, offering the conveniences of electric start and automatic transmission, its single-cylinder displacing somewhere in the region of 125-150cc.

  2. Maruti is planning to go into overdrive in the next two years with a series of new launches planned including the SX4 Crossover The other SX4 model (codenamed YL1) will be a new upgraded saloon that is likely to be launched in the latter part of 2013 or early 2014 with a variety of new features. The SX4 model, originally planned for Europe, is designed by Giugiaro’s ItalDesign studio and is in production since 2006 with the SX4 shared by Fiat and Suzuki; the Fiat-badged model is known as Fiat Sedici. For developing markets like India and China, the saloon version of the same name was developed with a crossover styling. Globally, Suzuki calls the SX4 a ‘sporty crossover’, and the carmaker showcased it at the Auto Expo 2012. Maruti is believed to be targeting a production capacity of 100,000 units per annum for both the new SX4 crossover and saloon models, say sources in the know. The SX4 in the hatchback version occupies a niche in a market of five-door mini-SUV crossovers in Europe and is available in petrol variants of 1.5 to 2.0-litre engines. In diesel trim, the SUV crossover is powered with Fiat’s 1.3 to 2.0-litre engines and is available as a 4WD. It is expected to be introduced in India with similar engine options to boost flagging sales of the SX4, as Maruti is keen to be seen both as a saloon as well as a small car player. Maruti is also is getting its new 800cc diesel engine ready in Japan; this motor will power its new small car that will be launched in end-2013 or early 2014. The new five-door model on the A-star platform (codenamed YL-7) is expected to be rolled out just before Diwali and will offer the same petrol and diesel variants as available in the current A-star, say sources. Also in the pipeline is an upgraded Swift in petrol and diesel variants and a Zen that is due to be out in 2013. Source: http://autocarpro.in/contents/technologyDetails.aspx?TechnologyID=141
  3. BMW is set to add another petrol model to give company to the 328i. The 320i petrol. This will be a base variant and can be yours for Rs. 28.5 lakhs (ex showroom Mumbai) which makes it Rs 8.5 lakhs cheaper than the 328i. Some noteworthy points of the 320i petrol Simplified iDrive The 8.8-inch widescreen infotainment display will be replaced with a smaller 6.5-inch screen The audio system will include a single-CD player with Aux-in and USB capability and no in-car data storage No reverse camera Faux leather upholstery 16" inch alloys The 320i will be powered by a 2.0 litre 4 cylinder petrol motor with 181 bhp mated to an 8 speed gearbox with some tweaks to the ratios. The 320i will rival the C200 CGI from Mercedes and the Audi A4 1.8 TFSI.
  4. Land Rover has embarked on a massive new model blitz that could more than double its annual sales by 2020. It is almost certainly the biggest investment that the UK car industry has ever seen. Land Rover’s future model line-up will fully cover the three main areas of the booming global SUV market — luxury, leisure and utility. According to Land Rover’s design director Gerry McGovern, the brand is set to expand all three of its model families. The plans include additional models for the Range Rover line-up, a new Defender family and a radical expansion of the Freelander range that will create four new ‘leisure’ SUVs during the next seven years. Land Rover sources refuse to estimate the potential size of the car-maker once the seven-year plan has been introduced. However, market data suggests the global SUV market will reach 22 million units by 2020. If, by radically expanding its line-up, Land Rover captured around three per cent of that market, it would be close to producing 600,000 vehicles annually.

  5. Hyundai is looking to get the new Santa Fe to India by 2013. It will be powered by a 2.2 litre diesel motor with 194 bhp on tap. Internationally, two versions of the new Santa Fe exist. There’s the normal 4689mm (2700mm wheelbase) version for markets where urban agility is more important, and a long, 4905mm (2800mm wheelbase) version that replaces the Veracruz in the USA. Despite our infatuation with imposing road presence and acres of cabin space when it comes to SUVs, we are likely to get the shorter version, currently being produced in the USA. This is the third gen Santa Fe and also carries the Fludic Design philosophy seen in other Hyundai models on our roads. However it gets its own design dialect called 'Storm Edge' Hyundai will be looking to price the new Santa Fe between Rs. 24 to 25 lakhs. Things seem to be hotting up in the premium SUV market with many players joining the game. This is only good news for the customer who will get spoilt for choice.
  6. The most awaited new Maruti Alto 800 has been finally launched at a price of Rs. 2.44 lakhs for the base model Ex Showroom Delhi. The first scoop pictures of the Alto 800 were first seen exclusively on the Autocar India forum. The base trim gets standard features like grey interiors, vinyl seats, dual trip-meter and tubeless tyres, while the LX trim gets all these as well as fabric seats, air-conditioning and a remote fuel-lid opener. The top-end Alto 800 LXi comes with body-coloured bumpers and door handles, chrome-trim on front grille, full wheel-caps, grey or brown interior shade, silver-trim on inside door handles and speedometer, metallic finish on the steering wheel, remote opening for the hatch and internally adjustable ORVMs. This is the only variant that comes with an optional driver airbag; the lower variants will not have power windows or steering either. Maruti will also offer the Alto 800 with a factory-fitted CNG kit. Maruti has spent Rs 470 crores on developing the new Alto 800. 200 engineers have worked for 4 years to develop the new car and it has been done entirely in India. Maruti says that over 10,000 cars have been booked even before the launch. Looks like Maruti has hit the bulls eye once again. The new Alto 800 will be sold alongside the Maruti 800 (BS III markets only) and the Alto K10 Maruti Alto 800 prices: Petrol- base Rs 2.44L, LX-Rs 2.76L, LXI-Rs 2.99L, CNG- Base Rs 3.19L, LX-Rs 3.37L, LXI-Rs 3.56L (Ex-Delhi) I feel the pricing is spot on. Maruti is not called small car king for no reason. What do you think of the pricing Here is the ACI review for the new Alto 800: http://forum.autocar...aruti-alto-800/

  8. Chevrolet has launched the new Captiva with a facelift and a new engine as well starting at Rs. 18.74 lakhs. However the new 2.2 litre 186.5 bhp diesel will be available on the AWD Automatic only and that comes at Rs. 24.59 lakhs Ex Showroom Delhi. I have always liked the Captiva as a car but somehow I feel this new one is a tad overpriced. Cant wait to try it out though. What do you guys feel? Will the new Captiva work at this price?
