Shortly after making its debut, the new Toyota Innova Hycross has now been launched in India. With the new generation model, the ‘Innova’ nameplate has got a lot of upgrades, many of which are a first for the MPV, including a first-in-segment strong-hybrid powertrain and ADAS.

Mahindra will soon bring the two-wheel-drive variant of the current Thar, but with a smaller diesel engine. The specifications of the upcoming 2WD Thar have been leaked ahead of its launch. With a smaller diesel engine, the three-door Thar will be eligible for sub-four-metre taxation, making it more affordable.

While the Scorpio N got a five-star safety rating in Global NCAP crash testing, Mahindra has apparently eliminated hill assist and ESC (electronic stability control) from lower variants of the SUV. Instead, Mahindra is now charging an additional premium for these safety features.

Jeep has removed the petrol-manual variant of the Compass SUV from its India lineup. The 1.4-litre turbo petrol (with 163PS and 250Nm) is now only available with a seven-speed DCT. The manual variants, however, are now only offered with the 2-litre diesel engine, which produces 170PS and 350Nm.

2023 Tata Safari Spied With ADAS For The First Time

The latest spy shots of the facelifted Tata Safari have surfaced online, which was spotted testing with camouflage sporting the ADAS radar for the first time. The facelifted Safari will not carry any mechanical changes apart from the addition of a few features. It is expected to be showcased at the 2023 Auto Expo.
