Weekly news roundup: Kia Seltos first look review, Renault Triber accessories revealed, MG Hector bookings closed

In the past week, there has been an interesting turn of events in the automotive industry. We did the first look review of the much-awaited Kia Seltos and also spoke about the UVO connect features. Moreover, we also revealed the exclusive list of Kia dealers in the country. Apart from this, we spoke in detail about the accessories brochure for the Renault Triber. There have been a few spy shot images as well where we spotted the 2019 Suzuki Vitara, Hyundai Elantra facelift, 2019 Honda HR-V and the BS-VI compliant Mahindra XUV300.

New Hyundai Verna facelift 

The new Hyundai Verna was spotted completely undisguised, which reveals its exterior design. Despite being a facelift, the Hyundai Verna gets a completely new design. Upfront, there's a huge cascading family grille, a set of new sharp-looking projector headlamps and a redesigned bumper. The profile is largely unchanged, but gets new alloy wheels, although, higher models will get diamond-cut wheels.

Hyundai Active Shift Control for Hybrids

The Hyundai Motor Group claims to have developed the world’s first Active Shift Control (ASC) transmission technology. It is believed that the innovation optimizes transmission efficiency by monitoring gear shifts 500 times per second, thereby, precisely adjusting the transmission rotation speed for faster shift times. The company further adds that the new technology will premiere in the upcoming Hyundai and Kia hybrids.    

2019 Renault Duster accessories

Renault recently launched the facelifted Duster for the Indian market. This updated SUV can now also be equipped with many optional accessories from authorised dealerships. The Duster with the new updates is well-equipped with many new features straight from the factory. However, buyers who would want to customise their SUVs to their personal taste can opt from a wide range of options. These range right from chrome accents, protective covers, seat covers, floor mats, alloy wheels, among others to even a jump seat. Most of these not only add to the looks, but are also designed to add some practicality of the SUV.

Hyundai Kona electric review 

We have driven the Hyundai Kona Electric at the Buddh International Circuit and have mentioned four things we really liked about the Kona Electric and two things that we didn’t. Powered by a 39.2-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion polymer battery, the vehicle claims to return a driving range of 452kms. 

Datsun redi-GO gets standard safety features

The Datsun redi-GO has been updated with standard safety features to comply with the new safety guidelines. The redi-GO now comes with driver airbag, high-speed warning, rear parking sensors and seat belt reminder as standard across the range. The redi-GO was recently updated with ABS and EBD.

MG Hector bookings closed

MG Motor India has announced that it will temporarily halt bookings for the Hector with immediate effect. The company has revealed that they have already received more than 21,000 bookings for the Hector since it started on 4 June. The company has halted production to ensure timely and orderly deliveries to customers. 

Mahindra TUV300 Plus facelift spied

Ahead of its launch that is likely to take place in the coming months, the Mahindra TUV300 Plus facelift was spotted testing in Chennai. The images reveal a test-mule of the TUV300 Plus facelift completely camouflaged.

BS-VI Compliant XUV300 spied

Mahindra and Mahindra has begun testing the BS-VI compliant version of the XUV300. A fully camouflaged test-mule of the updated model was spotted on public roads, hinting that the launch could take place in the coming months.

Skoda Rapid Rider launched in India 

Skoda has launched the limited edition Rapid Rider at a price of Rs 6.99 lakhs (ex-showroom). The vehicle is limited to the 1.6-litre MPI petrol engine and it is available in two colour options – candy white and carbon steel. The limited-edition model gets sporty cosmetic detailing and new features.

Suzuki Vitara spied 

Spy images shared on the web show the 2019 Suzuki Vitara testing in India once again. The Vitara could be here to test a few components or engines. Presently, there is no information to indicate whether Maruti Suzuki plans to launch the model in the country.

Kia Seltos preview 

The Kia Seltos is finally here and after an official unveiling, we got to drive the pre-production prototypes at their test track in Anantapur. Now we’ve already spoken about the car and here we have spoken in brief about the design.

Carwale Go-Karting day

The larger-than-life art of sitting in a spartan metal tray with four wheels and a 200cc Honda engine while going relatively fast in a tight space. We’ve said this before and will say it again - Go-Karting is the DNA of racing. Drivers at the top of their field, be it past or present, have all discovered their talent and ability for the racetrack from this form of racing.
