According to the latest details available, Tata Motors has decided to retain their 1.5-litre and above diesel engines even after the BSVI emission norms comes into effect from April 1 next year, though, the brand is yet to confirm the future of its 1.2-litre diesel engines. Disregarding the several rumours of axing the Tata Hexa due to the implementation of BS6, the brand has confirmed that the MPV will be getting a BS6 update in the coming months.

Since Maruti Suzuki has decided to axe the production of its diesel cars from next year, Tata Motors has decided to take a complicated road. The brand believes that the cost of paying INR 1.00-1.50 lakh extra for the big diesel engine cars can be easily accommodated with increased efficiency and overall low maintenance cost as compared to the petrol engines. The brand is still evaluating whether the smaller diesel engines will be beneficial for the customers after the implementation of BSVI norms or not.

Commenting on the continuation of big diesel engines, SN Barman, Vice-President, Sales, Marketing and Customer Support, Tata Motors, states: “My strong belief is that for the bigger diesel cars (1.5-litre engine and above), there is no alternative. If you look at the fuel efficiency per se (for engines above 1.5 litres), it is substantially lower for petrol engines than diesel engines. The running cost of the petrol engine in the bigger cars is always going to be higher than the diesel engine. It makes more sense to have diesel engines during the BS-VI regime as well because one can always recover the additional cost of ₹1-1.5 lakh.”

To recall your memory, the Tata Hexa is powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine that offers a max power of 150HP and a peak torque of 320 Nm for its base variant. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The high spec trims of Tata Hexa further offers a maximum power of 156HP and 400 Nm of peak torque. The brand offers an optional 6-speed manual gearbox and an automatic gearbox for the top-level trims.

According to the recent reports, the 2020 Mahindra Thar is all set to make its grand debut at the Auto Expo in February next year. The brand has been consistently focusing on its next-gen Mahindra Thar that is highly likely to launch with a host of cosmetic as well as mechanical upgrades. Here are 5 quick facts about the upcoming 2020 Mahindra Thar SUV:

1) New Engine Options – The brand is expected to offer the next-gen Mahindra Thar with a BS6 compliant, 2.2-litre, four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine capable of churning out a maximum power of 140HP and 300Nm of peak torque. The power output for the 2020 Mahindra Thar will be higher when compared to the 105HP offered by the currently available 2.5-litre diesel engine. Some reports also suggest that the brand might also offer a 2.2-litre petrol variant for the SUV, inspired by the XUV500. Like the current-gen model, the upcoming model of Thar will also be available in both 4×2 and 4×4 variants.

2) New Platform – The 2020 Mahindra Thar will be based on the brand’s third-gen chassis that is also doing duty on the updated Scorpio and TUV300. Being based on a new platform, the off-roader SUV is expected to get an increase in overall dimensions. In addition to this, the next-gen Thar will feature a wider footprint as well as a revised suspension.

3) Increased Safety Parameters – According to the new automotive safety norms that came into effect recently, the brand will be debuting the 2020 Mahindra Thar with dual front airbags, seat belt reminders, rear parking sensors, ABS with EBD as well as a high-speed alert system. The brand will also be introducing the next-gen Thar in compliance with the new crash test norms which will be mandatory from October 1, 2019.

4) All-New Interiors – The next-gen Mahindra Thar will feature revised interiors to offer the SUV a more premium look. The brand will equip the off-roader SUV with new bucket seats at the front in addition to front-facing seats at the rear, adding to the overall comfort. The brand is likely to offer a touchscreen infotainment system in the 2020 Mahindra Thar. In addition to this, the SUV will feature a revised instrument console and media controls mounted on the steering wheel.

5) New Styling – The next-gen Mahindra Thar will be made available with both soft top and hard top options. The brand will be offering premium components on its off-roader SUV with revised front and rear panels with a muscular design language. The front end of the 2020 Mahindra Thar will be revised to comply with the new pedestrian norms coming into effect from August 2020. The new model is expected to get a starting ex-showroom price tag of around INR 10 lakh.

The updated Porsche Macan SUV has been officially launched in India with a starting price tag of INR 69.98 lakh for its base model that is powered by a 4-cylinder petrol engine. The top-end Macan S with a V6 engine comes with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 85.03 lakh. Porsche has tried to keep the prices in check to make the Macan available to a wider buyer base.

Mechanically, the base model of the Porsche Macan SUV comes in a pack with a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo petrol engine that develops 252HP of maximum power with 370Nm of peak torque. The Macan S variant is powered by a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 petrol engine, which churns out 354HP of maximum power with 480Nm of peak torque.

The performance of the car can be imagined by looking at its remarkable performance figures as the V6 model can sprint from 0-100 kph in just 5.3 seconds, which is 1.4 seconds quicker than the four-cylinder Macan. The Macan S has a company-claimed top speed of 254 kph.

Coming to the exterior changes, the Macan facelift comes with an LED light bar that connects the taillights. At the front, the car has got new LED headlights with the signature Porsche four-point daytime running lights along with a redesigned bumper. The big interior addition that the car gets is in the form of Porsche Communication Management System which comes featured in the 10.9-inch, full HD touchscreen infotainment system. The buyers will also have an option for the GT sports steering wheel that will get a Sport response button.

The brand has officially announced that they won’t be making diesel cars anymore.

Earlier this year, the carmaker also launched the new-generation 911 in the Indian market.

2020 Benelli TNT 600i has been spotted again in a new set of pictures. The new images surfaced online have been shot at a studio, unlike the previously seen images that were captured at the production facility in China. The recently surfaced photos show the upcoming motorcycle with a host of new updates.

Inspired from the design language of Benelli TNT 899, the upcoming motorcycle now features almost identical twin-eye shaped LED headlights as seen on its other siblings of the TNT portfolio. The LED headlight setup offered on the previously gathered spy shots featured a contemporary vertical headlamp design for the motorcycle. The production version of the motorcycle is expected to get the same twin-eye headlamp set up to give the bike its unique identity as that of the other motorcycles in the TNT series.

The fuel tank of the motorcycle features a more angular design language while the brand has equipped the same with Benelli badging on the top black panel. The turn indicators on the motorcycle now come integrated into the tank extensions. The 2020 model of TNT 600i features a split seat setup that offers a more sporty look to the streetfighter.

Also taking some design cues from the Benelli TNT 300, the upcoming TNT 600i now gets an underbelly exhaust system ditching the twin under-seat exhaust system as seen in the last-gen model. Powering the current-gen Benelli TNT 600i is the 600cc, inline, four-cylinder engine capable of churning out a maximum power of 86.2 HP and a peak torque of 54.6 Nm. The 2020 Benelli TNT 600i will have more power and torque output while the engine will be BS6-compliant for the Indian roads.

The current-gen Benelli TNT 600i is available at a price tag of INR 6.20 lakh while one can expect the updated version to be priced in the same bracket though a slight price hike might add up with the BS6-compliant engine. The updated Benelli TNT 600i is expected to be launched at the EICMA in November 2019 while the Indian market will get the updated version of the motorcycle sometime in 2020.

Jeep Compass marked its debut in India 2 years back and the SUV recently got a diesel-automatic variant in the form of the Compass Trailhawk. This variant of the car is priced at INR 26.80 lakh, which is INR 3.70 lakh premium over the Limited Plus variant. The high price tag surely has disappointed a lot of buyers who were hoping for an affordable diesel AT variant. As per the latest details available, the company is expected to launch a cheaper diesel-automatic variant of Compass by Diwali this year.

Like the recently launched Trailhwak variant, the upcoming Jeep Compass model will also be BSVI-compliant with a 2.0-litre diesel engine, which is good enough to produce 173 HP of maximum power along with 350 Nm of peak torque. There will be a 9-speed torque converter automatic gearbox like the Trailhawk version.

However, there is still a doubt whether the diesel-automatic configuration will be available only on the Limited Plus variant or on mid-spec variants as well. Also, there are chances that the diesel-AT is likely to be available only with the front-wheel-drive models, to keep 4×4 exclusive for the Trailhawk variant.

Limited Plus Variant of Jeep Compass

Exact specifications and the equipment list for the car will only be available when this variant will be close to market launch. Currently, the base model for the Jeep Compass starts at INR 15.60 lakh and goes up to INR 23.11 lakh for the Limited Plus variant. Right Now, the buyers have Mahindra XUV500, Volkswagen Tiguan, and the Hyundai Tucson as the premium options but now they will get one more option as the much more affordable diesel-automatic Compass is all set to launch in India soon.

Tata Harrier Sunroof Model Spotted: Tata Motors is continuously testing the more powerful BSVI-engine equipped Harrier on the Indian roads. The model will also get a major increase in terms of power output. Autocar India recently leaked a new spy shot of the car in which the upcoming SUV has been spotted without camouflage on the outskirts of Bangalore. Going by the looks of the test mule, it looks quite similar to the production-spec Harrier that is already on sale.

But a closer look at the test car shows that it is equipped with a sunroof which is not available as an option in the current-gen model of the Harrier. In addition to that, this particular model is expected to be equipped with an automatic gearbox.

Tata’s Harrier is currently on sale with a single 140HP, 2.0-litre diesel engine that comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The company will soon start offering the Harrier with a Hyundai-sourced 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The updated model is expected to generate a maximum power of 170HP.

The competition in the SUV market has just been increased by the introduction of newer models in the market like MG Hector and Kia Seltos. Tata Motors is also working on the Buzzard/Cassini, which is the seven-seat version of the Harrier that was showcased at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. The Tata Harrier sunroof model is expected to launch in India around Diwali in October 2019.

2020 Hyundai Verna Spotted (New Photos): After a long wait, finally, the first set of images of the updated Verna sedan has surfaced online, which originated from China. The 2020 Verna’s styling shows the car more in line with the newer Hyundai models sold abroad like the latest-gen Sonata, the refreshed Elantra and the Ioniq.

The images that have surfaced on the web shows the upcoming car with significant changes. It now gets the more aggressive and edgy design as compared to its previous model. Upfront, the car now features a wider and sleeker iteration of the trademark cascade grill with much larger headlamps that sort of merge with the grille.

The headlamps itself have three different sections that are divided by chrome outlines that feature separate enclosures for the projector headlamp, the parking lamp, and the turn indicator. The bumper of the car also gets an all-new and improved design with a mix of satin grey bits and black plastic.

Also, the 2020 Hyundai Verna will get new alloy wheel design for the higher variants getting diamond-cut dual-tone alloy wheels with a similar look as it is seen on the Venue that is sold in India and the new ix25 SUV that is sold in China. Coming towards the back of the car there lies a major change.

The boot design for the car is all-new, and so is the tail light cluster connected via a thin LED strip that runs across the car’s width. The number plate enclosure is still on the boot but this time it has been placed a bit lower.

Mechanically, the facelifted Verna will come with a new set of 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine options. These new engines will be BSVI-compliant and will also be seen in other Hyundai models like the next-gen Creta as well as the refreshed Elantra.

The new Verna’s 1.5-litre petrol engine will also come in a pack with a 48V hybrid system and will be future-ready. However, there is no confirmation that the India-spec Verna will look similar to China-specific model, but if we look at Hyundai’s global design strategy, we can expect it to look similar to the one we see in these spy photos.

The 2020 BS6-Compliant Royal Enfield Thunderbird X has been spotted testing again on the Indian roads. The retro-modern cruiser has been spotted with alloy wheels, lack of backrest and a different set of components than the present-gen model.

The first change comes in the form of an all-new exhaust system, resulting in BS6-compliant setup for the upcoming emission norms that will be enforced from April 1, 2020. The cruiser motorcycle will come with a reversed chain as well as disc brake placement, clearing the fact that Royal Enfield will make considerable changes to the lineup through the new frame and swingarm combination.

Royal Enfield will facilitate part sharing to the next level through their 2020 lineup as the suspension setup, disc brakes, ABS, chassis, and fender design could stay similar on all the bikes. The rear suspension has seen an upgrade on the 2020 variant of the Thunderbird series, showing intentions that the brand will use better than ever components to enhance the decade-old ride experience that almost never changed in the recent times. The alloy wheels are expected to stay exclusive to the Thunderbird X series as the 2020 Classic and Thunderbird series are expected to come with spoked wheels like the current-gen models.

2020 BS6-Compliant Royal Enfield Thunderbird X has been spotted with matte-black rear-view mirrors and the test number plates confirm that the brand is eager to switch to the next generation by late 2019 or as early as the first month of 2020.

Royal Enfield has already introduced dual-channel ABS in the lineup earlier this year and going by the same trend, the brand will be equipping the 2020 variants with fuel injection to make them better in terms of mileage, power delivery, and emissions.

The price tags will rise significantly for the 350cc models as the 500cc variants are already available with electronic fuel injection system. At present, the current-gen Royal Enfield Thunderbird X is available in India with a starting price tag of INR 1.63 lakh (ex-showroom).
