The unveiling of the Maruti Suzuki Futuro-e coupe SUV concept has officially kickstarted the biggest event of the Indian automobile industry, the Auto Expo 2020. Showcased as a design study, the Futuro-e concept will act as a basis of the upcoming Maruti Suzuki models while at the same time allows the brand to foray itself into the mid-size SUV segment.

Taking the high road, the concept designers at Maruti Suzuki has pegged the Futuro-e concept with a unique Coupe SUV outlook, different from any other mid-size SUV currently available in the market. The all-new concept has been specifically designed as an “Indian car with global sensibilities’.

The rear windscreen of the car has been integrated neatly inside the bumper and it offers the SUV a sporty outlook while the addition of thick C-pillars furthers adds to its exquisite persona. The sleeker tail light design with LED strip running across further imparts it with the quirky exterior.

Other special highlights of the Maruti Suzuki Futuro-e concept includes the well-lit and distinctive LED headlight and tail lights setup, a panoramic sunroof, large wheels with unconventional alloy wheel design as well as the overall wide outlook that offers it a bulky look.

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.

Among several unveilings at the Skoda Auto Volkswagen India Media Night, the Volkswagen Group also unveiled the Skoda Vision IN concept, that made its world premiere in New Delhi. The production-spec model of the concept will be the first to be launched under the VW Group’s “India 2.0 Project”. It will also be the first model to be built on the company’s brand-new MQB A0 IN platform.

Though Vision IN is a concept by Skoda, it is of the prime importance to the VW Group. It previews a mid-size SUV that will go against the Hyundai Creta, Tata Harrier and Kia Seltos. The prototype model of the vehicle provides a glimpse of a handsome and bold-looking SUV.

It resembles the design of Skoda Kamiq sold abroad but with a more bold and upright nose, with the trademark chrome-established Skoda grille flanked by split projector headlights and an angular front bumper featuring large air intakes. Other design elements of the SUV include plastic cladding all around, prominent roof rails and large 19-inch alloy wheels.

The back of the concept also shares its design traits with Kamiq. The Skoda Vision IN concept features an additional light strip that stretches the width of SUV along with a three-slot skid plate similar to the one on the front. In terms of size, it is roughly the same length as that of the Hyundai Creta, that is about 4.26-metres.

Coming to the interior, the concept car features a thin chrome bar that spans the length of the dash. To make the car look more appealing, Skoda has used bright orange shade on a lot of parts that includes the dash, door panels, centre console, and the front armrest.

The Skoda Vision IN concept gets a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system right next to the Virtual cockpit digital instrumentation. There is a three-spoke steering wheel along with the buttons for phone controls, voice commands, lane assist and cruise control.

Mechanically, the production version of the midsize SUV is expected to be powered by a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine that will produce 150HP of maximum power along with a peak torque of 250Nm. There will be no diesel option on offer but a CNG variant could be there on the list.

Coming to the mechanical traits, the Tuono 660 concept features the same light aluminium frame, engine, chassis, and suspension as that of the RS 660 though, the brand has conceptualized the motorcycle for a daily use thus offering it with a large handlebar unit. The motorcycle has been equipped with same RS 660-inspired LED headlight setup mated to LED DRLs. The side fairings have been specifically designed to divert the hot air away from the rider.

Powering the Aprilia Tuono 660 concept motorcycle is the same 660cc parallel twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine that is capable to generate a maximum power of 45.5HP for the standard variant subjected for the use of young riders while the high-power variant is expected to generate around 95HP of maximum power.

The braking duties are handled by 320mm disc brakes at the front with radial-mounted callipers. The Tuono 660 concept motorcycle has been equipped with a TFT colour display with smartphone connectivity.

Similar to the Aprilia RS 660, the Tuono 660 concept bike features an adjustable suspension setup in addition to getting the APRC electronic package powered by six-axis IMU which further offers Traction Control, Wheelie Control, Quick Shifter, Cruise Control, Cornering ABS and more.

Hero Xtreme 1R concept motorcycle has been recently showcased by the brand at the EICMA 2019. With a futuristic design and an aggressive stance, the production variant of the successor to the Xtreme 200R is expected to be unveiled by the end of the year 2020.

Specifically designed to target the younger audience, the Hero Xtreme 1R concept motorcycle features sharp styling in addition to getting a sports bike persona. The kerb weight of the motorcycle stands at just 140kgs, all thanks to its sleek design profile while the LED headlight setup further adds to its sports bike look.

Coming to the rear, the motorcycle features a smaller tail profile flowing towards the rear while featuring an LED taillight and a GoPro camera just below it. The combination of red, white with blackened-out body panels further offer the concept variant a distinguished character.

The brand has equipped the concept variant of the motorcycle with a floating rider saddle though, the production variant might not come out with the same aggressive stance.

The slick tyres offered to the motorcycle in addition to a bulky front apron looks splendid and one cannot expect the brand to offer the same to the production variant. Hero MotoCorp has equipped the motorcycle with Xtreme 200R chassis with chunkier tyres but they are highly unlikely to be carried onto the production variant of the motorcycle.

There aren’t many details disclosed by the brand on the engine specifications though one can easily recognise the use of air-cooler integrated below the belly pan. If the brand decides to bring out the production variant of the Hero Xtreme 1R concept sometime in the next year, one can expect it to be equipped with an all-new high-performance 200cc liquid-cooled engine.

Suzuki has officially showcased a head-turning concept at the 2019 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS). The car showcased by the company is known as the Suzuki Jimny Tough concept. The beefier version of the compact SUV gets a whopping 360mm of ground clearance as compared to 210mm of the standard model.

The body of this particular model has been coloured Jungle Green that consists of a scratch-resistant resin that usually comes featured on the loading bed of the pick-up trucks. The paint of the car gets a textured yet flat non-glossy finish that looks utterly menacing.

Coming to the dimensions of the Jimny Tough Concept, the overall length of the SUV is 3900mm, with a width of 1700mm and it has an overall height of 1780mm. The wheelbase of the car is 2250mm.

Mechanically, the SUV comes powered by the K15B petrol engine, which has got a displacement of 1462cc. The engine is good enough to produce 102HP of maximum power at 6000 rpm with 130 Nm of peak torque at 4000 rpm.

The suspension duties of the car are handled by 3-link rigid axle with coil spring at both front and rear ends. The main attraction point of the car is its large off-road tyres known as Savero Komodo Extreme MT31-R15 GT.

For safety and security purposes, the Jimny Tough Concept comes with brake assist, shift lock key for AT variant, front dual airbags, hill hold control, hill descent control, electronic stability program, side-impact beams, anti-lock braking system, immobilizer and a security alarm. The tough concept of the compact SUV has received major equipment upgrades that make it stand different among its standard variant.

We can expect Maruti Suzuki to bring the Jimny to the Indian market in the near future as a replacement for the discontinued Gypsy. But one thing is for sure that the India-spec model of Jimny would come featured with 4-doors and there will be a lot of other differences to make the car suitable for our market.

Mahindra Roxor RoxBox Concept took the practicality level of the compact off-road vehicle to the next level. The launch of Roxor in a limited number of markets confirmed the first Mahindra venture into the recreational driving segment and now, they are seen considering this impressive concept for people who need a compact machine that can double up as a mini truck for occasional jobs.

The rivals offer similar products that are fun to drive in most conditions but Roxor RoxBox confirms that it can offer the benefits of a weekday workhorse and weekend fun machine in a single yet affordable package.

The steel cage on the Roxor RoxBox is foldable while front and rear bumpers available on the same are made of steel too. The front resembles the face of a Thar, modified enough to carve out a unique presence for the Roxor. The wide fenders are well shaped while the roof features an LED flood light bar for night use in the rough terrain. The side view shows negligible doors, flat rear bed section that comes with a practical cage-like boundary. Not just that, the door can be opened to have access to the tool section that neatly stays hidden in the deck area.

The interior features standard seats with dual tone finish and comfort-enhancing basic features are missing from the package like most of the rivals. For those who still wonder what they can have with the Roxor, the vehicle features a steering wheel, pedals, gear lever and seats.

The 2.5-litre 4-cylinder diesel engine on the Mahindra Roxor RoxBox Concept is good for 62 HP of maximum power and 195 Nm of torque. The size of the vehicle helps this engine bring a decent fuel economy figure along with enough power to tackle any terrain that comes into the weekend getaway route. As of now, Mahindra has no plans to launch the Roxor recreational vehicle in India.

Bajaj Dominar Livewire concept by SRK Designs is undoubtedly the most exciting modification for a middleweight motorcycle.

Three-wheel vehicle prototypes are the new trend for the major vehicle manufacturers though Yamaha NIKEN is the only trike available for sale in the market. Coming to the latest news on the same, Honda has been granted a patent for its three-wheel motorcycle, NeoWing. The trike was first showcased as a concept in 2015 at the Tokyo Motor Show while the brand filed for the patent in 2016.

Honda received the green signal from the European Patent Office last month. According to the recent happenings, the trike would be available in the market sooner than expected, though the unveiling date has not been officially announced as of yet.

Honda NeoWing is expected to be based on the same engine specifications as that of the Gold Wing. The single wheel at the back is connected to the engine while the dual front wheels are connected to the steering. The bike can lean into corners just like other bikes but would offer more stability and control.

According to the patent, the Honda NeoWing might feature a 6-cylinder engine borrowed from the Gold Wing though, the company does suggest a 2-cylinder engine also. Judging from this, the brand might introduce the three-wheeler with two engine specifications, giving the Yamaha NIKEN a tough competition by launching an entry-level model of NeoWing powered by a 2-cylinder engine. Powering the Yamaha NIKEN is an 847cc, three-cylinder engine that churns out a maximum power of 115 HP at 10,000 rpm and a peak torque of 87.5 Nm at 8,500 rpm.

On the other hand, it is also being rumoured that Honda might also equip the NeoWing with a hybrid motor unit where the 4-cylinder engine and the electric motor will offer massive torque output. When launched in the International market, the Honda NeoWing would be represented as a premium offering in the brand’s lineup.
