Japanese automotive giants Toyota & Suzuki have joined hands to help cut their developmental costs. The venture has been decided for the Japanese markets and the effects of this new partnership are being felt as far as the Indian shores. Quite soon, Toyota will use the new 1.5-liter K-series petrol engine that Suzuki has developed for the Ciaz facelift.

Discount on Maruti CarsThe new 1.5-liter K-Series petrol engine is expected to produce nearly 104 HP of maximum power and 138 Nm of peak torque according to the reports. While the engine was designed and developed in Japan, it will be built by Maruti Suzuki in India, debuting in the Ciaz with the mild hybrid technology that Ciaz uses. The engine will appear in its full form and factor when Suzuki will bring the new Ertiga MPV to the markets. The engine will also appear in the petrol variant of the Vitara Brezza compact SUV.

With the engine replacing the current 1.4-liter K14B engine, it will be an upgrade for the Ciaz and the Ertiga, but for the Toyota Corolla, it will be a downgrade. The Corolla Altis currently uses a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 140 HP of maximum power and 173 Nm of peak torque. When the Suzuki K-Series engine makes it to the Corolla Altis, it will surely get a re-tuning to help with a significant power bump to come somewhat close to what the current power numbers are. Toyota could also go the full hybrid way like it has with the Camry. This could be done if the engine does not get a re-tune and Toyota uses it as it is.

The next generation of the Corolla is expected to arrive by 2020. The partnership between Toyota and Suzuki will bring rebadged Balenos and Vitara Brezza under the Toyota brand and a rebadged version of the Corolla under the Maruti Suzuki badge.

Next-Gen Hyundai Verna Price List
Petrol Variants
– E MT: INR 7.99 Lakh

Above mentioned prices are ex-showroom Delhi.

The Next-Gen Verna looks clean and adds premium essence through its smooth boot design, eye catchy headlights and typical sedan aesthetics. More than that, buyers can now focus on their favorite shade as options have been expanded to Flame Orange, Fiery Red, Stardust, Phantom Black, Siena Brown, Polar White, and Sleek Silver.

2017 Hyundai Verna measures 4440 mm in length, 1729 mm in width and 1475 mm in height. It comes with a wheelbase of 2600 mm and carries a fuel tank capacity of 45 liters. The ground clearance of New Verna is 165mm and the boot space stands at 480 litres.

New Verna can now be bought with just two engines, both being 1.6L petrol and diesel model respectively. The performance values remain unchanged for the car. It can be had in E, EX, SX ad SX (O) variants, all of them offering a variety of trims based on 6-speed manual as well as 6-speed automatic gearbox. The 1.6L petrol motor is good for 123 PS and 151 Nm of torque while 1.6L diesel motor is even more powerful with 128 PS of maximum power and 260 Nm of peak torque.

The much-awaited 2017 BMW 1 Series sedan has finally been revealed today. BMW 1 Sedan will give a tough competition to Audi A3 sedan and the Mercedes-Benz CLA. The 1 Series sedan concept was showcased at the Auto Guangzhou event in China as the ‘Concept Compact Sedan’ in 2015 and has also been spied earlier multiple times.

The car continues to retain the same looks which was previewed at the concept car last year. The marque’s trademark kidney grille is still there though with little less chrome than the concept car. Along with this the sleek LED headlamps, the “wing-design” lower intake has also been retained. The car has got black painted trim piece on the fog lamp enclosures, resized wheels with five twin-spoke look, redesigned side mirrors and conventional door handles which are the same as concept car.

The important part is that BMW 1 series has been designed to meet the needs of Chinese customers and will be available only for the sedan-obsessed market of China. The 1-Series Sedan has been developed and tested in the BMW headquarters with the help of Chinese engineers.

To make sure it fits into Chinese market, the new car was tested under varying climatic and road conditions in different terrains in China. Along with that BMW 1 Series Sedan has been structured and designed with special fine-tuning and improvements to suit habits and vehicle-use environment of Chinese customers.bmw-1-series-sedan-2

The BMW 1 Series is a collaborative project developed by German brand’s Bavarian headquarters and Chinese partner Brilliance Auto. The production for 1 Series sedan will take place in China and will be sold along with X1 SUV and 2 Series Active Tourer. This may be BMW’s first front-wheel drive sedan but as such there are no confirmations about the same.

Although there are no revelations about the dimensions of the car but a  capacious passenger space in the back row is expected, it being the primary target for any vehicle sold in China. Whether the car will be launched for the global market or will continue to hit Chinese roads, still remains a secret.
