Upcoming Cars

  • Hyundai’s comeback kid, the Santro is set to begin its second innings in the Indian market on October 23, 2018. Official online-only bookings have already begun.

New Launches

We usually come to this at the end of the wrap up but there will be an exception this time. There were a sizeable amount of new car launches and updates in the past week which need your attention. Here’s a lowdown on all of them.

  • Tata has launched an XM+ variant of the Hexa which as the name suggests gets added features.
  • The 2018 Honda CR-V is back and how? With more seats, features and engine options.

  • Tata Tigor has been updated to take on its tough competition.
  • The Datsun GO and GO+ are now a lot more capable of plucking at your heart strings, so much so that you buy one. Base variants are even more affordable and features get a significant boost up too.

  • You can have your Jaguar F-Pace in a petrol engine now, but only as long as it’s in the Prestige variant.
  • Volkswagen has introduced the telematics system and cosmetic enhancements on their Polo, Ameo and Vento.

Latest Developments

  • We all collectively agree that the Honda Accord hybrid is blatantly overpriced. But fret not, there will be a slightly more affordable hybrid on its way.
  • The upcoming Land Rover Defender is going to get a generation change and we are happy to report, it stays true to its lineage even in the new avatar.
  • 2019 BMW X1 facelift has been spied yet again, this time with a bigger infotainment screen.
  • One of India’s best selling hatchback, the Maruti Swift has been crash tested and the reports are nowhere near impressive.
  • Maruti is testing WagonR based EVs in India for their real-world capabilities.

  • 12 new Tata cars across different segments headed our way which including a Toyota Fortuner and Honda City competitor.
  • Expect affordable PSA group (Peugeot, Citroen, DS and Opel) vehicles in India as the brand is planning to localise a new platform. What cars will it underpin?
  • Tata Harrier engine details revealed. It will get drive modes and a 2.0-litre diesel engine.
  • If you are of the thinking that a new car purchase is a hassle, the Mahindra has began leasing program on its entire lineup of passenger cars in select cities.
