This week witnessed a few new launches and price hikes.  Also, Kia recalled the Carens for a software patch while Honda began celebrations of a significant milestone.

Let’s take a glance at everything that happened this week:


  • Mahindra XUV300 TurboSport: Mahindra launched the new TurboSport version of the XUV300. It comes with a more powerful 1.2-litre TGDi turbo-petrol engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission. It gets a couple of cosmetic changes too, as well as new colour options, that you can check out here.

  • MG ZS EV Excite Variant: MG introduced a new base-spec Excite variant for the ZS EV. The new variant is cheaper by a few lakh rupees, despite getting the same battery pack, motor and range. Moreover, though it gets a 10.1-inch touchscreen display, grey interior, six airbags, a 360-degree camera and more, it loses out on the panoramic sunroof, auto-folding ORVMs and ADAS.


Honda City Completes 25 Years

The Honda City recently completed 25 years in the country. It is currently in its fifth generation which became the first mass-market model to offer a self-charging hybrid powertrain and also comes with ADAS tech.
