Tata Cassini Could be the Official Name of Buzzard for the Indian Market: Tata with its new lineup of four major vehicles in every segment was one of the most significant showstoppers at the Geneva Motor Show 2019. The new lineup consists of Tata H2X, Altroz, it’s EV version as well the 7-seater version of Harrier SUV unveiled by the name Buzzard. The brand is expected to launch two of its new cars by the end of the year 2019.

According to the new reports surfaced, Tata has been given an official “no” for its patent filing of the 7-seater Harrier as Buzzard thus leading the brand to file for a new name: Tata Cassini. Based on the name of an official satellite launched through the collaboration of NASA with ESA, Tata’s H7X, now going by the name Cassini is one of the most anticipated SUVs of the year.

The European markets will still be getting the H7X by the name Tata Buzzard. According to the speculations, the brand is expected to offer a 4-wheel drive system on the Tata Cassini though no official confirmation on the same has been made yet. The all-new SUV will be equipped with all the features from the Tata harrier in addition to 2 extra seats and a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Powering the Tata Cassini is a 2.0-litre FCA-derived engine capable of boosting the maximum power to a whopping 170 HP mark indicating the SUV to offer much more torque. Keeping in check the fact that all the mechanical bits for the Tata Cassini have been derived from the Land Rover vehicles, it is likely to get a tweaked terrain management system.

In terms of pricing, the all-new SUV is expected to get a competitive price range to compete against the likes of Mahindra Alturas G4, Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, and the Isuzu MU-X. In order to overcome the competitors, the brand is expected to undercut the price range by a huge margin making the Tata Cassini to be priced at INR 16 lakh (ex-showroom) for the base variant.

MG Motors is expected to set foot in India with their debut car, the MG Hector SUV. Though we were blessed with certain teaser images of the same few months ago, the first clear images of the SUV have surfaced recently. The Indian-spec variant of the Hector SUV has been seen during the filming of a TV commercial with UK’s very own Benedict Cumberbatch taking the front wheel. India’s first connected passenger vehicle is expected to be launched in the mid of the year 2019 and will be priced at a starting tag of INR 15 lakhs. The MG Hector SUV is expected to compete in the market with the likes of Hyundai Creta, Jeep Compass and Tata Harrier.

MG Hector will be available in India with two engine specifications. The 2.0-litre diesel engine borrowed from Jeep Compass is capable of churning out a power of 170 HP while the 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine will be good for 150 HP. Both the engine variants will be mated to a 6-speed manual transmission though, the petrol engine can also be availed with a six-speed DCT.

Based on the underpinnings of Baojun 530 SUV, the MG Hector SUV’s Indian Spec variant gets a tweaked front grille exhibiting a honeycomb design. It features a larger signature logo “MG” at the centre of the grille while exhibits a chrome trim on the front bumper. The SUV will feature LED headlights and daytime running lights while the shark antenna and the diamond cut alloy wheels compliments its unique styling.

The MG Hector SUV will be available in India in two sunroof variants: a panoramic sunroof for the top spec models while a smaller one for the base model. The SUV is expected to feature a 10.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system though, the high spec variants can also expect major other luxury features. The Indian showrooms for the brand are expected to be inaugurated in the coming months though there hasn’t been any date finalised for the launch of MG Hector SUV as of yet.

First revealed at the Auto Expo 2012 in Greater Noida under the name of RE60, the Bajaj Qute has had to face many hurdles over the years in terms of regulations. An amendment from the Government of India has already ensured that the Qute will see the Indian roads and the recent leak of pricing has made the fact more concrete than ever. The petrol variant of Bajaj Qute comes with a price tag of INR 2.64 lakh while CNG can be had for INR 2.84 lakh. The prices are much higher than what most sources expected for the Qute. Both the prices are ex-showroom Delhi.

New stipulations were formed by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways when they decided to approve the quadricycles and change the policies. According to these new regulations, a vehicle will be considered a quadricycle only if it has a curb weight of fewer than 475 kilograms and passes the safety, emissions, and crash tests that are mandatory. These safety standards are considered to be more strict than the ones set in Europe for the same category.

Other manufacturers and policymakers have been openly disapproving Bajaj Auto but the Qute is all set to make a statement and a name for itself. The Qute is manufactured at the Chakan facility of Bajaj Auto along with the three-wheelers produced by the company. The quadricycle will get its power from a 216.6cc single-cylinder water-cooled petrol engine which will be mounted in the rear of the vehicle. Bajaj Qute comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox and the top speed claimed by the company is 70 kph. The mileage stands at 35 kmpl and 43 km/kg for petrol and CNG respectively.

Bajaj Qute Specifications

  • Engine Displacement – 216.6cc
  • Four Stroke, Twin Spark-Ignition
  • Single Cylinder, Liquid Cooled
  • Power (Petrol) – 13 BHP @ 5500 rpm
  • Torque (Petrol) – 18.9 NM @ 4000 rpm
  • Power (CNG) – 10.8 BHP @ 5500 rpm
  • Torque (CNG) – 16.1 NM @ 4000 rpm
  • 5-Speed Gearbox
  • Fuel Tank – 8 litres
  • Ground Clearance – 180mm (Approx.)
  • Turning Circle – 3.5 metres
  • Wheelbase – 1925 mm

German automaker Mercedes-Benz first lifted the veils off the A-Class sedan at the Beijing Motor Show in April 2018 and now, the car is expected to enter India with its sedan-specific dimensions. The car was only seen in a hatchback version before the show. Internationally, the car is available in the standard sedan and long-wheelbase version. The Mercedes Benz sedan is positioned below the C-Class sedan, making it the most affordable four-door model from the company, and will compete against the Audi A3 sedan and BMW 2-Series Gran Coupé.

The car comes with is a turbocharged 1.3L four-cylinder petrol engine that puts out a maximum power of 163 hp and a peak torque of 250 Nm. The other option is a 1.5L four-cylinder diesel motor that produces a maximum power of 116 hp and a peak torque of 260 Nm. The two engine options may come with the badges A200 and A180d, respectively. Both the engines will be mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, while there is an option of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. They could potentially miss the manual version for the Indian market.

While a majority of the units of the 2019 Mercedes A-Class sedan produced will come with front-wheel drive, the company has planned to offer a limited number of four-wheel drive variants for the specific markets. On the inside, the sedan will feature the same twin-screen dominated dashboard that we have come to expect from the Mercedes-Benz cars. The infotainment system functions through MBUX system with touchscreen control and speech recognition. The input to the infotainment system is through buttons on the steering wheel, touchscreen input, touch-pad input via gestures, swivel wheel input, and voice recognition; all present to ease the driver’s control over the car while driving.

2019 Honda Civic has been 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.

The recent surfacing of Tata Altroz specifications confirmed that a sure shot winner has been made by the Indian brand. The car measures 3988mm in length, 1754mm in width and 1505mm in height. The wheelbase measures 2501mm for the Altroz. The maximum width factor makes Altroz an extremely passenger-friendly car while wheelbase seems restricted in comparison to the other options. Not just the dimensions, the engine section for the car was also revealed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The car seen at the show had a petrol engine under the sculpted bonnet and availability of a diesel unit remains a mystery.

The 1.2L, three-cylinder engine on the hatchback is good for 102 HP at 5500 rpm and 140 Nm at 1750-4000 rpm. The gearbox seen here was a manual unit. The engine will be surely a turbocharged unit as the power values are higher than most cars available in this class. Apart from the engine, values like the 17-inch alloy wheels will also bring class-leading feature list into action here. The tires measure 205/50 for the top model while launch period for the premium hatchback is mid-2019 for India. The rivals in the segment include Maruti Baleno, Hyundai i20, Volkswagen Polo and Honda Jazz.

Tata Altroz comes with various segment-leading features like the huge alloy wheels and dual displays in the dashboard for mirroring the content from the main screen to the instrument console. The most powerful factor for Tata is the interior design here, selecting premium components over regular ones and leaving no stone unturned with the body coloured inserts on the top model. The car is expected to be priced from INR 6 lakh and may get a price tag of under INR 10 lakh for the top-spec model. The colour options have not yet been revealed.

Tata Altroz has been officially unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The production version of the much-talked-about 45X concept comes with various segment-first features and design lines that are not seen in any of the rivals. To start with the design description, one must understand the new philosophy followed by Tata cars. The front features stretched primary headlight section with smoked-out lamps and independent lower fog lamp section while daytime running lights are seen studded within the lower housing.

The bumper stays clean with the majority of coloured section and sport black air dam with no extra division. The alloy wheels are machine-finished while the side profile features praiseworthy window section and raised roof section for all the seats. The glass section after the rear door is small yet completely practical. The tail section features excessive dark-themed parts like the tail light on the new Tata Altroz is also highly smoked.

The roof features black finish for the dual tone effect while the boot door can be seen with dual tone black and body paint finish. The interior has a different story to say as premium finish around the vents and button sections is worth praising. The floating infotainment system is sourced from the Nexon while 7-inch display with analogue speedometer is quite practical for everyday use. The owners could now enjoy uninterrupted navigation and settings menu on their console, leaving no room for turning head to the side while driving.

The interior stays all black, enhancing the sporty character of the car. The steering wheel features controls for the display, sound, telephone and cruise control. The seating feature light section of cloth in the middle while those can be easily covered with any seat cover design. The version seen here shows a 6-speed manual gearbox and well-arranged dashboard while the base version can be expected with no such component list and style-enhancing features. The engine options for the car are yet to be disclosed. Tata Altroz is expected to get a starting price tag of around INR 6 lakh, and the premium hatchback would be competing with the Maruti Baleno, VW Polo, and the Hyundai i20 in India.

Tata Altroz is the official name for the premium hatchback that will make its world debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show next month. The car will launch in India in the 2nd half of this year (July/August), leaving fans with enough time to consider their preferences for a hatchback of this size from the brand. Tata Altroz is based on the 45X concept revealed at the Auto Expo last year.

The recently spotted example was completely camouflaged, offering a glimpse of the front as well as side profile and clearly showing the interior class-leading features of the car. The well-balanced profile with decent window size and raised overall stance is quite attractive, further flaunting extended tail section with wraparound lights and raised bumper.

The four-spoke alloy wheels split into eight while joining the outer side and rear door takes slight inspiration from other Tata cars in terms of design. The headlights are slim and loaded with projectors with chrome rings. The front fascia is more like a Tiago with a stretched smile, resulting in less than the usual curve and not a typical Tata car smile.

The lower section is heavily camouflaged, hiding the fog light section completely and deforming the lower grille shape successfully. The tires are well sized and so are the wheel arches. The wheelbase looks healthy, with Tata cleverly enjoying every millimetre of the under the 4-meter limit with lower taxes.

The powerful 1.2L, turbocharged engine under the hood of Tigor JTP can serve as the petrol motor here while diesel is expected to stay the same as Nexon. Even the petrol motor from Nexon is quite impressive and perfect for a premium hatchback. Tata is working on an automatic gearbox for the new car while 6-speed manual will stay as standard on the Nexon-sourced engines.

Rivals for Tata Altroz includes Maruti Baleno, Honda Jazz, and the Hyundai i20. The semi-digital instrument console with a mirroring display for navigation, music and other app options is the highlight of the premium car and undoubtedly, the first to feature in this segment. Tata Altroz is expected to get a starting price tag of around INR 5.50 lakh (ex-showroom).

The unofficial bookings for 2019 Ford Endeavour have started in India with select dealers for INR 1 lakh. This new beast has been on sale in Thailand with a starting price of 12.99 lakh Baht, which roughly converts to INR 26.67 lakh using direct currency conversion. On the 2019 Ford Endeavour, a number of features can be seen that were previously absent from the SUV, along with some cosmetic upgrades and new onboard equipment. Starting from the front, on the exterior one can see a new triple-slat grille, a reworked bumper with lower air intakes, and all-new six-spoke alloy wheels. At the rear, there is just a minor change with the revised bumper.

There is a new 2.0-litre turbocharged engine which produces maximum power of 180 HP and peak torque of 420 NM. The twin-turbo diesel engine, on the other hand, produces 213 HP of maximum power and a massive peak torque figure of 500 NM. Both the engines, which were previously mated to a 6-speed transmission, now come coupled to a 10-speed unit that Ford has borrowed from its Ranger Raptor. The engines mentioned here may stay Thai-specific only. Ford may continue to sell the updated Endeavour in India with the same 2.2L and 3.2L diesel engines with 6-speed automatic transmission.

The interior gets a bunch of new upgraded features like keyless entry, push-button start, autonomous emergency braking system with collision warning, tire pressure monitoring system, hands-free power tailgate, and Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Ford Endeavour has been a highly appreciated SUV in India, especially with the current generation, which had received significant design and feature upgrades from the previous models.
