Top international-bound cars spotted in May

Top international-bound cars spotted in May

Growing competition in the automotive industry has encouraged car manufacturers to either upgrade or introduce new models in their product lineup. Amongst a slew of spy shots covered by us in May, here below are the top-four international-bound cars.

Renault Twingo

In the middle of its life cycle, the Renault Twingo was spotted on test with mild cosmetic upgrades.  It is believed that Renault might discontinue the existing 0.9TCe engine for a larger 1.0TCe. Reports indicate that the new mechanical tweaks with turbocharger and a new cylinder lining will offer 95bhp of power unlike the older engine which generated around 90bhp of power. Visually, changes will be limited to revised bumpers and the rear fender. As for the interior, it is expected to be offered with a new steering wheel design and a refreshed infotainment system.  

Jeep Scrambler pickup

Although the pickup version of the Jeep Scrambler was spotted on test in the past, this time around we have a better look at the tailgate. Based on what can be seen, the Scrambler is likely to get a Ridgeline-esque tailgate, but the tailgate in these shots hint at the fact that the Jeep will go with a traditional setup. The vehicle is expected to be based on the long-wheelbase Wrangler Unlimited platform, with similar front-end styling and traditional Jeep styling towards the rear. The vehicle is expected to be powered by a 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine which will come mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Dodge Charger Hellcat

The performance focused car, the Dodge Charger Hellcat is due for an upgrade this year. To be based on the modular platform, the new model will be powered by a V8 engine that generates 707bhp of power. The refreshed model will get the latest FCA driving technologies along with new cosmetic and feature upgrades.

Volkswagen T-Roc R

Volkswagen’s sporty crossover, the T-Roc was spotted on test at the Brunswick factory in Germany. Although the test mule featured a standard body, the production version will have a lowered ride height thanks to the tuned suspension and will ride on a larger set of wheels. The 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine is likely to be borrowed from the Euro-spec Golf R that generates anything between 300-350bhp of power.
