Toyota Glanza is most likely the official name for the rebadged version of Maruti Baleno. The car was awaited for a long time as the partnership between Suzuki and Toyota is the first of its kind venture that will use an existing product to form a rival with a rebadged identity.

The similar cars seen earlier like Duster and Terrano are available due to the same parent brand but in this case, the two have different parent brands and all they will share is technology with each other. The rebadged Baleno (codenamed A11), would be getting just the 1.2L petrol motor initially, with a 5-speed manual as standard and CVT as an option from the brand.

You can imagine the Toyota Glanza as a Heartect platform car with engine mounted within the chassis and wrapped with Toyota body panels all around. The two variants for the new Glanza are expected to be high-end options and thus, expecting Toyota to use more technology on these variants will not be wrong at all.

Toyota will officially share the details regarding their new car on April 26 while the launch is expected on June 6, 2019. The 1.2L engine on the Toyota Glanza will be BS6-compliant and thus, prices will be higher than regular petrol cars.

The rivals on the list include Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz and even the Maruti Baleno. The first step for platform sharing, Glanza will open the doors for Ertiga, Ciaz and Vitara Brezza to get rebadged versions from Toyota while they will also share the platform of Corolla Altis with Maruti Suzuki in the next phase.

Apart from the plans of discontinuing the smaller diesel engines, these two brands will update their petrol engines to get the emissions under BS6-directed levels. Baleno with the new 1.2L DualJet engine has already been launched in India and that one comes with the smart hybrid system as standard.

The Lexus LM 300h was one of the show stoppers at the 2019 Shanghai Motor Show. It is the first ever Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV) by the brand. Toyota’s luxury arm, Lexus is all set to launch the MPV in China as well as selected Asian markets by the end of this year. Based on Toyota Alphard, the Lexus MPV will be available in 2 variants: LM 350 and LM 300h.

The former has been equipped with a 3.5-litre petrol engine while the latter gets a 2.5-litre, 4-cylinder hybrid engine that offers a combined maximum power figure of 218HP. It is expected that Lexus will introduce its luxurious MPV in India at an ex-showroom price tag between INR 75-85 lakh, focusing specifically on the business class customers.

One of the intriguing features of the MPV is its front profile that features a Lexus touch. The foursquare exterior with a massive front grille featuring sleek LED headlamps as well as unique LED DRLs gives the MPV a luxurious stance while the chrome detailing on the fog lamps adds onto its superior appeal.

The chrome inserts flow all the way to the back of the MPV though its side profile still resembles the Toyota Alphard. Muscular wheel arches and the dual tone alloy wheels give it a distinguished look. The Lexus LM MPV is available in four and seven-seat configurations.

The interior of the SUV is something that sets it apart from the crowd and shrieks of luxury. Focusing on the jet aeroplane style, the four-seat configuration of the MPV will attract the crowd for sure. Separated with a glass from the front cabin, the rear of the Lexus LM gets a full-sized home theatre for the entertainment purposes. The fine leather-clad seats and the wood finish gives the MPV an extravagant look. The flashy interiors defining the Lexus’ luxurious approach is something to look out for.

The separation glass used inside the cabin gets a noise reducing feature while the other opulent feature list includes Mark Levinson 19-speaker audio system, a 26-inch television, a 14-litre refrigerator, and an all-touch display for the AC, climate control and audio control. If and when launched in India, the MPV will compete in the market with the likes of Mercedes-Benz V-Class.

Hyundai Venue has hundreds of minor points that help it gain a unique position among the compact SUVs of India. Keeping all of them in mind and Hyundai’s plan to bring the car to India next month, the thinking will definitely fall in the favour of waiting for a few weeks before making your next car purchase. Here are five reasons why the new Hyundai Venue SUV is worth waiting for the Indian buyers.

5 Reasons Why You Should Wait for Hyundai Venue SUV

1) Excellent Design and Styling: Hyundai has raised the design benchmarks to the next level, forcing others to consider the split headlight setup for their future products. The sharp eyebrow section holds the indicators while daytime running lights and primary headlight is enclosed in the lower section. The rear design of the car is also very impressive with VW Polo-inspired tail lights. Those who feel the Venue is compact and may not suit their needs, they can have a look at the Next-Gen Creta here.

2) Spacious and Feature-Rich Interiors: Hyundai Venue Interior is truly drool-worthy as prospective buyers will get loads of space on the inside, that too loaded with features that can improve the overall drive feel. The features like electric sunroof, glove box cooling, wireless charging, cruise control, and Arkamys sound clears that you lose nothing in the package. The compact SUV is equipped with an 8.0-inch floating touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay & Android Auto. You can click here to view the live photos of Venue Interior.

3) Multiple Engine and Gearbox Options: Everyone has a different view of petrol and diesel engine preference. The fact was clearly understood by Hyundai as they have offered petrol, diesel and even turbo petrol for the buyers. The last one comes with an option between a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The petrol and diesel motor are shared with the popular i20 hatchback while the all-new 1.0L, 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol offers 120 HP of max power. Here are the quick technical specifications of Hyundai Venue SUV:

1.2L Petrol Engine

  • Displacement: 1197cc
  • Engine Type: Naturally Aspirated
  • No. of Cylinders: 4
  • Max. Power: 83 HP
  • Max. Torque: 115 NM
  • Gearbox: 5-Speed Manual

1.0L Petrol Engine

  • Displacement: 999cc
  • Engine Type: Turbocharged
  • No. of Cylinders: 3
  • Max. Power: 120 HP
  • Max. Torque: 172 NM
  • Gearbox: 6-Speed Manual/7-Speed DCT Automatic

1.4L Diesel Engine

  • Displacement: 1396cc
  • Engine Type: Turbocharged
  • No. of Cylinders: 4
  • Max. Power: 90 HP
  • Max. Torque: 220 NM
  • Gearbox: 6-Speed Manual

Dimensions

  • Length: 3995mm
  • Width: 1770mm
  • Height: 1590mm
  • Wheelbase: 2500mm

4) Safety and Connectivity Features: Hyundai Venue comes with class-leading connectivity through Bluelink technology. It offers remote start, climate control and a total of 33 connectivity features. Buyers can monitor real-world traffic conditions along with vehicle theft notification and other safety features. The passenger safety features on the car include 6-airbags, Electonic Stability Control (ESC), Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Hill Assist Control (HAC), ISOFIX child seats, and Brake Assist System (BAS).

5) Attractive Warranty and RSA Package: Hyundai will offer 3-year unlimited kilometre warranty along with 3-year Roadside Assistance Package (RSA) with the car. The Venue will definitely be the most advanced car of its segment and its profile similarity with Creta clears the fact that buyers with a restricted budget will prefer going for the top-spec Venue instead of the middle variant of Creta. The price range for Hyundai Venue is expected to fall between INR 8-12 lakh (ex-showroom). The brand will reveal the official price list on May 21 in India.

2019 Honda Civic has recently launched in the Indian market for INR 17.69 lakh. The car has scored 5-star safety rating in the ASEAN NCAP crash tests and thus, proves that Honda has no intention of leaving any negative point for the buyers. However, those who love diesel engines would feel the lack of power with just 120 HP on the paper. Not just that, the automatic gearbox from the CR-V has been missed in favour of the 6-speed manual unit.

Civic rivals none other than Hyundai Elantra, Skoda Octavia and Toyota Corolla Altis in this segment. Apart from the Corolla, the other two options are available with powerful diesel engines. Here are the complete details for the Civic petrol and diesel variants, along with their specifications, mileage, shades, variant-wise features and price list.

2019 Honda Civic Mileage (Certified)

The mileage figure of 26.8 kmpl for the diesel engine is praiseworthy and segment-leading for sure. However, the rivals are available with more powerful diesel options. The petrol engine on the Honda Civic is perfectly sized and available with the refined 7-speed CVT. The 16.5 kmpl of mileage is good for those who prefer more city driving than the highway users as torque from the diesel engine can make cruising easier than ever.

Live photos of the new Hyundai Venue SUV clears that the brand has a winner on its side. The car looks brilliant from every possible angle and front fascia remains the most-appealing factor among all design lines. The top-spec model seen here comes with machine-finished alloy wheels, visible rugged feel through the wheel arches and silver bumper extensions. The front grille comes with a visible 3D effect while A-pillar seems inspired by the best-selling Creta for sure.

The addition of roof rails and LED daytime running lights, along with indicators in the eyebrow section make Hyundai Venue SUV a great option to consider in this segment. The interior feels premium with all black finish and sporty steering wheel. The size of the wheel is well-balanced, further using a silver insert like the gearbox area and console section. Hyundai Venue is expected to get a price tag between INR 8-12 lakh, with the turbo-petrol automatic variant being considered as the top-spec option for the buyers. The brand will officially launch the Venue compact SUV in India on May 21.

Getting a major makeover, the all-new Mahindra Thar is expected to make its official debut in India at the Auto Expo in February 2020. The next-gen model of Thar is expected to feature a host of new updates including a much wider cabin space, all-new exterior design, updated engine, new alloy wheels, and a removable hardtop.

Featuring a 7-slat front grille, the all-new Mahindra Thar has been designed keeping in mind the new frontal offset and side crash test norms by the Indian government to be effective from October 1, 2019. In addition to these, the brand is also focusing on expanding the Thar’s portfolio with different variants.

According to the reports, the all-new Mahindra Thar will also be available with Jeep wrangler inspired removable hard top in addition to the standard soft top version. These new safety measures for the first time will allow the vehicle to be pedestrian friendly as well as cater to the hard weather conditions. The brand is also focusing on providing the customers with a much more silent interior by improving the insulation levels in order to shield the interior from outer vibrations, heat as well as noise.

The 2020 Mahindra Thar also features a redesigned steering wheel, chrome inserts on the AC vents, and the SUV’s interior now has more defined design lines. One of the best-added features is a modern instrument console with a multi-information display (MID) and two analogue dials with an updated design. The centre console has also been updated to accommodate an infotainment system.

In addition to the design changes, Mahindra is also planning on introducing an automatic gearbox for the Thar. Keeping in mind the new BSVI emission standards to be implemented from April 2020, the brand might also introduce an all-new petrol engine for the Thar. The off-roader is also expected to feature XUV500 inspired 2.2-litre petrol engine in addition to an updated BS6-ready diesel engine. Accommodating the new city-specific features, the all-new Mahindra Thar off-roader would be able to target the audience looking for something unique though being city-friendly.

Volkswagen T-Roc SUV was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2017 and now the brand is all set to launch it in the Indian market by the second half of this year. The compact SUV is based on the MQB platform and it will be the second SUV in the Volkswagen portfolio to be launched in India after the Tiguan. The SUV will be available in the Indian market as CBU though, will be positioned under the VW Tiguan in terms of the price range. Volkswagen will be importing the T-Roc as per the central govt’s regulations of shipping only 2500 units per year.

The VW T-Roc will allow the brand to compete in the market with the likes of Hyundai Creta in the premium compact SUV segment though the price segment can also make it compete with the likes of mid-size SUVs like Tata Harrier, Jeep Compass and Mahindra XUV 500. The Volkswagen T-Roc is available in the global market in 5 different variants while there haven’t been any details shared for their availability in India as of yet. It is expected that the compact SUV will be offered in the Indian market in two powertrains: a 1.5-litre TSI EVO petrol engine and 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine. They are likely to feature a 6-speed manual transmission though, a 7-speed automatic DSG will also be available as an option.

The Volkswagen T-Roc is available in the International market with an 8.0-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system, a sound system by Beats audio, cruise control, parking camera, city emergency braking, and a lot of comfort and safety features. If the SUV bags a good response in the Indian market, the brand might also initiate local production for the same. When launched in India, the Volkswagen T-Roc is expected to get a starting ex-showroom price tag of INR 16 lakhs while the price tag may go as high as INR 19 lakhs for the top spec variant.

Mahindra TUV300 facelift has started reaching the dealerships ahead of the official launch event. The updated model will be available in five different variants and now, the highlights have grown to the all-time max with the inclusion of gloss black and chrome on the front grill. The car was first introduced in 2015 and since then, the brand has tried numerous upgrades to keep the car in compliance to the compact SUV segment. The other options available in this segment are more glamorous, efficient and practical than the TUV300 while this one offers robust all-terrain usability with a practical SUV feel.

The sales number was never that high for the SUV but, efforts from Mahindra never went down. They have even showcased multiple modified versions from their own customization arm. The updated TUV300 comes with the 100 HP, 1.5L diesel engine with 240 Nm of maximum torque. The number is small in comparison to the Tata Nexon as it produces 260 Nm with much lower kerb weight on offer. Still, the rear wheel drive layout of TUV300 makes it exclusive in front of all the options. Also, the commanding seating position and the high bonnet is seen only on the Mahindra TUV300.

The variants will be named as T4+, T6+, T8, T10, and T10+. The AMT gearbox available with the car will not be offered on the updated 2019 variant. The same gearbox was listed under many issues as owners were not satisfied with its performance. The update may look smaller than usual but Mahindra must have made some internal changes to make the new TUV300 safer than the last version. The upcoming crash test norms will require the addition of many features to the Indian cars and options like Thar will not be able to pass the same without getting a complete overhaul.

Prior to the upcoming launch of Hyundai Venue SUV on 17th April, the official images of the SUV have surfaced online. The images are the courtesy of an advertisement being played at Times Square, New York, that gives a first-ever clearer look of the overall design of the compact SUV. Eliminating the chunkier wheels as well as huge wheel arches from the official sketches, the production model retains the 3D wave effect front grille with iconic Hyundai designing. The Venue SUV features a dual headlamp setup with the main headlight surrounded by DRLs placed on the lower edge of the SUV.

The front bumper of the Hyundai Venue features a youthful design with a sportier finish exhibiting contrast tone inserts while the SUV features the same diamond cut alloy wheels as seen in the previously surfaced spy shots. The Venue gets a floating white roof where the dual tone paint scheme gives it an overall promising sportier look. The C-pillar section of the SUV is mildly inspired by the Hyundai Creta.

Coming to the interior design revealed by the previous spy shots, the Venue SUV features a premium black finish with silver detailing across the vents and dials whereas the overall design offers a wider cabin space. The dashboard features a BlueLink Infotainment system that offers 33 additional safety-enhancing features where some of them have been specifically targeted for the Indian roads. The top-spec variant can also feature a rather long safety feature list as well as a large infotainment system.

The Hyundai Venue SUV will be available with three power trains: a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, a 1.4-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine, and a 1.4-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine, that has been borrowed from Hyundai Verna. Once launched in India, the SUV will compete with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport and the Mahindra XUV300. Hyundai will officially unveil the Venue SUV on 17th April, while the pricing for the Indian market will be announced on May 21, 2019.

MG Hector was recently spotted in the clearest ever photos, defining the character of the car with two different body finishes that are most probably the two different variants that MG Motor will offer for their first car. The car that comes with chrome outlines and alloy wheels (machine-finished) looks like the top model as the premium paint finish speaks elegance out of the design.

The other car is also seen with the exact same design but here, the silver finished alloy wheels and body outlines, along with a basic shade that looks beautiful on the car reveals the factor that it could serve as the lower priced variant for the brand. The roof colour of the chrome-laden car is not visible clearly while the light-coloured variant comes with the body-coloured finish on the top section.

The rear features an Audi-inspired tail light and well-sculpted bumper. The overall height of MG Hector is worth-praising while the high bonnet confirms a commanding position for the car on the Indian roads. The MG moniker looks great within the mesh grille and both the variants feature the daytime running lights within the eyebrow LED lights.

It is also possible that MG could place both these options at the same price as the choice of chrome can also be an option in all colours. The visible lower bumper section of the car is silver-finished on both the variants. The projector headlights, daytime running lights, and roof rails are expected to be standard on all the variants while the engine options are expected to be shared with different other cars in the industry.

The 2.0L diesel engine will be the same one as Jeep Compass with 170HP of maximum power, while the 1.5L petrol engine will produce 143 HP of power and 250 Nm of torque. The gearbox options have not been revealed yet, though the SUV is expected to be available with 2 transmission options: 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic.

MG Hector is expected to carry a price tag between INR 15-20 lakh (ex-showroom). The official launch will launch take place in June 2019. The Hector SUV is expected to compete in the market with the likes of Hyundai Creta, Jeep Compass and Tata Harrier.
