Top 5 Car News Of The Week: Mercedes G350d Launched, Kia’s Next Vehicles Confirmed, Maruti XL5 Spied, And More

Been busy at work or with Diwali planning? Here’s the car news you missed from last week

This week gave us immense hope for the next year. With major launches and policy changes, 2020 will see an influx of numerous new and upgraded cars. While Skoda is readying five cars for India, it has a brand new all-electric SUV planned for the rest of the world. We couldn’t be happier to know that Tata is going to retain ownership of Jaguar and Land Rover. While the Indian car scene was on a simmer this week, the international market was boiling with anticipation, with the all-new Yaris hatch and desirable Toyota Rise SUV being teased just ahead of the Tokyo Motor Show. Sounds like a lot, doesn’t it? Here’s all the other news you missed last week:

Mercedes G 350 d Launched

Mercedes-Benz launched the diesel version of the G-Class SUV, polarizing the G’s fan base across the country. The new diesel is a tad less expensive than its sole stablemate, the G63 AMG. Can the oil-burner win more hearts than the mighty twin-turbo V8 model? Click here to find out.

Upcoming Honda City Spied

If Indians didn’t love their Honda City, it wouldn’t have been one of the best-selling mid-size sedans in the country. That’s why Honda is prepping the next-gen City, which was spied testing with a full suit of camouflage. The facelift will give it a fresh face for 2020, and new features are expected to bring it at par with the upcoming Hyundai Verna. We can’t wait to see the new Jazz at the Tokyo Motor Show, which will showcase the new drivetrains that the City will bring to India. See for yourself what the new City promises. 

Bonus Round:
