The New Tata Nano

Tata Nano is set to get its first serious upgrade since its launch in March 2009. The face-lifted model will have new seats and fabric, new front seat headrests, a bright dashboard, bright interiors, new wheel-cap design and new colours.

There are some mechanical changes too. The steering has been reworked, the new car gets tweaked suspension setup and an anti-roll bar toimprove its ride and handling. Body has been made stiffer with better bonding of the body panels. This will result in improved refinement levels.

Tata has also raised the power by nearly 10 percent, from 35bhp to 38bhp. However,  no significant performance gain is expected.

Also the two-cylinder engine is been worked upon and a more powerful three-cylinder 900cc motor is expected a year later.

Major price revisions may not take place when the car is launched later this month.

Known internally as the B515, the EcoSport will be unveiled at the 2012 Auto Expo.

The EcoSport shares plenty of bits with the Fiesta saloon under the skin, and one may not be able to guess what these two have in common.

This car has a good upright stance, the high bonnet, generous ground clearance and subtle cladding gives it a tough off-roader look, the design is well proportioned too. It looks great from the back as well, with its pillar-less rear windscreen and sharply cut tail-lights.

The Fiesta DNA will ensure that this car rides and handles very much unlike an SUV, and the tall stance and high ground clearance will be perfect for Indian roads.

Ford will use the new 90bhp, 1.5-litre DV5 diesel which debuted in the new Fiesta saloon. A 4×4 variant may not be available. And a petrol variant can be expected later in the year to come.

Its pricing makes it a winner!! Expected to be between Rs 7 to 9 lakh, it sits right between the Manindra Scorpio and Premier Rio.

Austrian bike manufacturer KTM will make its Indian debut soon via Bajaj Motorcycles. Bajaj owns a good 39.3 per cent stake in KTM. It is expected that most of the KTM bikes will make their way to India. The KTM Duke 200 will be first from the KTM stable.

For optimal handling the center of gravity has been lowered by using an underslung exhaust system. The rear sports a directly mounted monoshock suspension, where as upside down forks do their duty at the front.
4 piston 300mm disc at the front and 230mm disc at the rear provide stopping power. Bajaj will ensure that the Duke 200 comes with a very competitive price tag slotting it between the Yamaha R15 and the Honda CBR 250R.
Expect it to be priced between Rs 1.2-1.4 lakh.
