  1. Japanese carmaker Nissan has revealed its future game plan for the Indian market. The company announced plans to launch around 10 new offerings here by 2016. First up will be the Micra CVT which will come with the same petrol motor that powers the manual variant. The X-Tronic CVT gearbox will do duty instead of the five-speed manual transmission. The Micra CVT will compete with the likes of the Ritz automatic and Brio automatic. Next in line will be a version of the Sunny equipped with the X-Tronic CVT gearbox. Expect Nissan to price the Sunny CVT below the badge-engineered Scala CVT. When launched, it is likely to compete with the likes of clutchless versions of the Vento, Rapid, Verna and the City. The third offering from Nissan will be for the compact SUV segment. This will be Nissan’s spin on the Renault Duster. However, the new SUV (Codename: NH87) will be more than just a re-badged Duster and will have some significant sheet metal changes as well. As seen from the brand hierarchy, we can expect Nissan to price the NH87 below the Duster. It is expected to enter showrooms end of 2013. Nissan will bring the low-cost Datsun Brand to India in 2014. Autocar India was the first to break the news about Datsun’s comeback in the June 2011 issue. For India, two Datsun hatchbacks are planned, both of which will slot below the Nissan Micra. The first model will be a Rs 4 lakh hatchback (code: K2) based on the two-generations old K11 Nissan Micra. Believed to incredibly spacious for its size, the K2 will feature an all-new ‘top hat’ and will come with a 1.0-litre petrol engine. A cheaper Rs 3 lakh model (code: I2) is also being developed to compete with the Maruti Alto.
  2. Honda is looking to introduce a new top end variant of its Brio hatch. It is expected to hit the roads in April this year. This new variant will be known as VX. As a hatch, the Brio makes a strong case for itself as a decent overall package, but has a few glaring omissions in its features list. The new variant will address these issues and include additional equipment like a rear de-fogger and driver seat height adjustment. A rear wiper however, will not be seen, as the Brio’s glass hatch lacks the provision to accommodate it. Honda currently averages a modest 2,000 units for the Brio every month and the introduction of a new variant should only make things better for the manufacturer. Last I asked the Brio V MT was at 7.1 lakhs onroad in Mumbai.. I wonder what price hike the VX will come with?
  3. Here are a couple of leaked pictures of the new BMW X5. If these are authentic you can see what can be expected in terms of looks. The front-end styling borrows heavily from the current 3-series, including the narrowed headlamps and prominent kidney grille. The large air vents at each corner of the front bumper are lifted from the recently unveiled 4-series Concept Coupé, while the rear lights are the same units fitted to the current X3.The interior is not revealed, though is likely to go further upmarket and will be offered with a third-row seating option. Engines have yet to be confirmed but the lineup is likely to include a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel, which will compete against the new four-cylinder. The new X5 is expected to hit Indian shores in 2014
  4. Toyota has launched the Fortuner with a 5 Speed autobox as opposed to the 4 speed box it had earlier. This variant is available in 2WD only. Toyota claims this new box will provide better comfort and driveability. Bookings for this model start from 18th January 2013. Additionally, the limited edition TRD Sportivo Fortuner trim has now been incorporated as a regular trim level to its line-up.The TRD Sportivo trim comes with additional features such as front and rear bumper spoilers, a rear roof spoiler, and a TRD Sportivo emblem. The Fortuner TRD Sportivo trim is available in three dual tone colours - Super White and Grey, Silver and Grey and White Pearl Mica and Grey. An all-new Pearl White Mica colour is also available in all trim levels. The new introductions are priced at: 4x2 AT (with five-speed auto transmission) - Rs 22,33,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi) 4x2 AT TRD Sportivo (with five-speed auto transmission) - Rs 22,93,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi) 4x2 MT TRD Sportivo - Rs 21,96,668 (ex-showroom, Delhi)

  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

  9. 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?
