Maruti Ertiga’s Standard Safety Kit Gets An Appreciable Update: The Maruti Ertiga got a mild facelift earlier this year, which brought with it some important safety upgrades. Maruti has now gone a step further and beefed up the MPV’s safety kit by providing electronic stability programme (ESP) and hill-hold assist as standard.
Mahindra XUV700 Bookings Update: Ever since the XUV700 went on sale in 2021, Mahindra has been witnessing crazy demand for the SUV. The carmaker has now revealed that the XUV700’s total bookings have crossed 1.5 lakh, which has certainly led to a lengthy waiting period.
Volvo C40 Recharge Confirmed For India: During the launch of the XC40 Recharge, Volvo divulged its plans to bring its second fully electric SUV, the C40 Recharge, to India. Like the former, the C40 Recharge too will be assembled locally here.

MG Hector Facelift’s Touchscreen Teased: It seems like after Mahindra, MG Motor has drawn inspiration from Mercedes-Benz for its in-car central display. This can be confirmed from the first teaser of the Hector facelift which is set to get a 14-inch infotainment system, thus replacing the currently offered 10.4-inch unit. In related news, we exclusively learned that MG will continue to offer the existing Hector alongside the facelifted model.
