Toyota has officially launched a special edition model of the Fortuner named TRD Celebratory Edition at a price tag of INR 33.85 lakh (ex-showroom). The new variant has been launched to celebrate the 10 years of the Fortuner SUV in India. The TRD model is available with a 2.8-litre diesel engine only and it is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission in 4×2 configuration. The TRD Celebratory Edition of the SUV is priced INR 2.15 lakh higher in comparison to the standard Fortuner 2.8D 4×2 AT.

The company has managed to sell nearly 1.60 lakh units of the Toyota Fortuner in India in the past 10 years. The TRD Sportivo limited edition variant was first introduced on the current-gen of the Fortuner back in 2017. Now, the 2019 model of the TRD variant carries similar styling as the previous model but some new elements differentiate the new model from the previous one. Mechanically, the SUV continues to be powered by the same 2.8-litre diesel engine that is good enough to produce 177 HP of maximum power and 450 Nm of maximum torque.

Coming to the exterior changes, the car is available in dual-tone colour with pearl white body and a black roof. Other than that, the front also gets a TRD badge on the grille and a new bumper with a faux skid plate. Another noticeable change is that the SUV is equipped with black 18-inch alloy wheels which are not available on the standard 2WD AT Fortuner. The rear change includes a new design for the bumper.

Talking about the interiors, the dual-tone theme continues on the inside as well. The maroon and black seats get TRD badges and the dashboard gets contrast red stitching. The rest of the features of the SUV remain unchanged as it gets the same LED projector headlamps, 7-inch touchscreen system with embedded navigation, 7 airbags, vehicle stability control with brake assist, hill assist control and ABS with EBD. The new Toyota Fortuner TRD edition will compete in the Indian market against the Ford Endeavour, Mahindra Alturas G4, Honda CR-V, Skoda Kodiaq, VW Tiguan, and the Isuzu MU-X.

MG Hector, the debutant SUV from the brand has been able to gather a lot of attention from the potential buyers considering its extraordinary design and a noteworthy performance on the top of some of the premium features exclusive to the British marque.

The brand has already sold over 3500 units of the SUV in just 2 months since its launch in the Indian market. The overwhelming response from the customers made MG suspend the bookings for the Hector SUV on July 18 till the rest of 2019 though the new reports suggest that the brand will reopen the bookings for the SUV early in October 2019 itself.

The MG dealers across the country recorded bookings for 28,000 units of the SUV while are focusing hard on making timely deliveries. The ramping up of production at the brand’s Halol plant to 3000 units per month by October is one of the reasons for accepting new bookings.

According to sources, MG will reopen the bookings for the Hector SUV in October as the festive season will be just around the corner. Though the customers might have to wait for a deliberate amount of time for the deliveries. The waiting period for certain variants of the car is already at 6-7 months, which implies that the brand will most probably be making deliveries for the new set of bookings in early 2020.

The new variant of the Hyundai Kona was succeeded by the previously launched product IONIQ. The hybrid has joined the prestigious Hyundai Kona family and the eco-mobility range. The Kona hybrid is packed with the Kappa 1.6-litre GDI, a direct-injection petrol four-cylinder engine providing a maximum power of 105HP and 147Nm of peak torque. The SUV’s permanent magnet synchronous electric motor generates a power of 43HP and a peak torque of 170Nm.

The all-new Hyundai Kona Hybrid draws its power from the 1.56 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery and delivers excellent performance during charge and discharge. It is also optimised to provide output from the high voltage battery to allow a rapid regeneration.

In total, the petrol engine and the electric motor generate power of 141HP and a peak torque of 265Nm, because of which the hybrid gives a dynamic driving experience. Some additional features of the hybrid include ECO-Driving Assist System, Coasting Guide and Predictive Energy Management. As of now, Hyundai has no plans to launch the Kona Hybrid in the Indian market.

Even though Honda has made numerous attempts to bring the Honda HR-V to the Indian market but the recent updates suggest that the schedule got a backslide. The Japanese automobile giant was hopeful about the plan due to which the mid-size SUV was in its production process but owing to a few factors it got astray. According to a recent report by Autocar India, the Honda HR-V will not be brought to the Indian market.

However, when enquired about the rumours from the company’s official, they refused to open about the speculations. Following the launch of the mid-size SUV in the US and Japan, the brand had initiated a feasibility study back in 2013. The company soon realised that it will not be able to launch the product with a competitive price tag as the HR-V comprises a number of components that need to be imported.

This will, as a result, prove to be a major obstacle in bringing the Honda HR-V at an aggressive price range. Honda was looking forward to launching the HR-V in India with a 1.6-litre turbocharged diesel engine along with a 1.8-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine. In terms of dimensions, the Honda HR-V is a 4.2-metre long crossover that has a monocoque construction, and if launched, it would have been competing with the likes of Hyundai Creta and the Kia Seltos.

It was 2017, that the company finally was ready for HR-V’s much-anticipated launch in India and thus to keep the prices low, it tried to localise the model as far as possible. The current slowdown compelled Honda to cut down the production from 12,000 units to 8,000 units, which weren’t good for their business.

Even after the localisation attempts, the model only achieved 30% localisation, hence the 70% imported components from Thailand and China would make it difficult for the brand to price the car competitively. All these factors hint at the call back of the launch of the Honda HR-V, meanwhile, the company is focusing on the launch of the fifth-generation Honda City scheduled for 2020.
