Mahindra Funster, a roofless crossover design concept has been recently unveiled by the brand at the Auto Expo 2020 which has begun today itself.

The upcoming XUV500 will feature an all-new exterior and interior design that will be inspired by the Funster concept. The brand has named the concept as “Funster” since the upcoming sports utility vehicle exhibits a ‘play-for-fun’ character.

The Funster has been equipped with a 59.2kWh battery pack mated to a motor at each axle which allows the EV to achieve e-AWD capabilities. The electric powertrain is capable of offering maximum power of 313HP while the top speed stands at 200kmph. The EV can accelerate from 0-100kmph in just 5 seconds.

Kia Sonet Compact SUV concept has been officially revealed by the Korean brand at the ongoing Auto Expo 2020. The brand has showcased a prototype model of the sub-four-metre SUV at the event that will officially join the Korean manufacturer’s portfolio by August 2020.

Based on the underpinnings of the Hyundai Venue, the Kia Sonet concept distinguishes from the former with the addition of an all-new interior and exterior design language that offers it a curvy outlook. The concept showcased at the Auto Expo 2020 features Kia’s iconic ‘tiger-nose’ grille at the front with mesh patterns across it.

In addition to this, the sharper accents at the front bonnet followed by the fog lamp inserts coloured in matte silver as well as the sleeker headlight design mated to LED DRLs further complements its overall look. The brand has equipped the Kia Sonet Compact SUV with larger air vents at the front while the overall aggressive stance makes it stand apart from the rest of the Korean brand’s portfolio.

The brand has equipped the SUV with a dual-tone colour scheme in addition to offering blacked-out roof rails as well as black wing mirrors.

The brand has also equipped the SUV with red accents on the alloy wheels, roof rails as well as on the door sills which further indicates the possibility of a sports GT line similar to the one offered with the Kia Seltos.

One can further expect the SUV to have wider legroom for additional comfort.

Since the Kia Sonet is based on the Hyundai Venue, one can expect the brand to offer the production variant in with a 1.2-litre petrol, a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol, and a 1.5-litre diesel engine with options for manual as well as iAMT gearboxes.

The production variant of the Kia Sonet concept is expected to be unveiled sometime in the mid-2020 while getting a price range of around INR 7 lakh to INR 11 lakh (ex-showroom). Once launched in India, the SUV will compete in the market with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport and Mahindra XUV300.

Judging from the first look, the concept does look inspired from the Land Rover Defender but the single-piece glass going all the way to the roof of the SUV gives it the similar old Sierra look. Coupled with a sleek headlight design with an even sleeker front grille, the SUV looks bulkier and muscular while the overall squared wheel arches add to its surreal physique.

The recently commenced Auto Expo 2020 has witnessed the unveiling of the “close-to-production” model of Tata’s smallest SUV as of yet, the HBX. The all-new small SUV concept is based on the H2X concept that was initially showcased at the Geneva Motor Show in 2019 while the brand is expected to position the HBX under the Nexon in its portfolio. In addition to this, the production variant of the Tata HBX will only feature a petrol engine just like other small cars from Tata.

The HBX micro SUV concept features the brand’s all-new design language while is the second product under the brand’s portfolio to be based on the ALFA platform that is the underlying platform for the recently launched Altroz hatchback. The designers have toned down the H2X concept showcased earlier which resulted in the formation of the HBX concept though the overall body panels with a compact design language remain the same.

The front fascia of the SUV features the authentic Humanity Line flowing across the front bumper while the headlight setup has been neatly integrated inside the main cluster. In addition to this, the square wheel arches add to its sporty exterior profile while the prominent accents further accentuate the overall sports-SUV design language.

Coming to the rear design, the tailgate setup is divided neatly from the raked windscreen while the wider tyres with blacked-out alloy wheels complete the overall boxy outlook of the SUV. The brand has also offered the Tata HBX concept with a large carrier mounted on the roof that can accommodate a tyre as well as luggage.

The Tata HBX measures 3,840mm in length, 1,822mm in width and 1,635mm in height while the wheelbase stands at 2,450mm that makes it measure close to the Maruti Suzuki Swift in dimensions though tall enough to be called a compact SUV.

Powering the HBX will be the same 1.2-litre, three-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol engine that caters to the Tata Tiago/Tigor and is capable of offering maximum power of 86HP. The engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox though one can also expect the brand to offer an all-electric version of the same sometime in the next two years.

Once launched in India, the Tata HBX will compete in the market with the likes of the Mahindra KUV100 NXT. Though there is no information on when the brand will launch the new concept though one can expect the actual production variant of the SUV to be revealed soon.

Coming to the distinctive interiors, the concept SUV has been equipped with a wide touchscreen display at the dashboard while there are numerous other displays specifically for the driver for controlling the interior function as well as adjusting the seat height or more. The brand has also offered the cabin with ambient lighting.

The brand has targeted the Futuro-e concept for multiple power trains which includes the likes of a hybrid as well as an EV, but initially, the brand will launch only the petrol-powered model of the Futuro-e SUV while a BS6-compliant diesel engine can also be on the charts.

The brand has not yet revealed any timeline for the launch of the production variant of the Maruti Suzuki Futuro-e concept though one can expect more news to follow soon. Once launched in India, the mid-size SUV from Maruti will compete in the market with the likes of Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Hector and more.

Maruti Suzuki will be showcasing its all-new Futuro E-Concept as the showstopper for the brand at the upcoming Auto Expo 2020. In addition to this, the next-gen Suzuki Jimny SUV is also expected to make its debut at the event.

Some reports also suggest that the next-gen Suzuki Jimny will launch in the Indian market as a 5-door variant as opposed to the 3-door version currently sold in the international markets though there has been no official confirmation received on the same.

Launching the Jimny would be one of the wisest decisions from the brand to target the entry-level compact SUV segment in the Indian market that is currently conquered by the Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Honda WR-V and more.

The upcoming Jimny SUV is expected to feature similar designing as well as mechanical bits when compared to the international-spec variants though the wheelbase is expected to be longer to accommodate the extra doors. The front bumper has a large air intake which is blacked-out, just like the outside rear-view mirrors. The wheel arches are flared, enhancing the mini-SUV stance further.

At present, powering the Suzuki Jimny in the international markets is a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 104HP and a peak torque of 130Nm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox as well as an optional 4-speed CVT transmission.

In addition to this, the next-gen Jimny SUV is also available with a 660cc turbo-petrol engine though that is only limited to Japanese markets catering to their Kei car rules. The Marut Suzuki Jimny is further expected to be discontinued in the European markets considering the new Co2 emission norms to come into effect from the year 2021.
