ZW-Weekly-Wrap

The four-wheeler world witnessed plenty of action over the last seven days. Here are the top headlines:

Renault Kiger Debuts

ZW-Renault-Kiger

The Renault Kiger has been launched in India. The sub-4m SUV is based on Renault-Nissan’s CMF-A+ platform. The Kiger packs a raft of features and offers adequate space for four occupants. 

VW Polo And Vento Get Yet Another Edition 

ZW-VW-Vento

Volkswagen India has launched the Polo and Vento Turbo edition. Based on the Comfortline variant, both models pack a host of cosmetic upgrades and the 110PS 1.0-litre TSI petrol engine. The Polo Turbo edition is also one of the most affordable cars with a turbo-petrol engine. 

BMW X3 Gets A New Base Variant

ZW-BMW-X3

The Bavarian carmaker has launched the new entry-level SportX variant for the X3 petrol. While it does lose out on some features found in the range-topping Luxury Line, you’ll be happy to know it’s relatively affordable despite packing all the essentials. 

Skoda Kushaq Inches Towards Global Premiere

ZW-Skoda-Kushaq

Skoda India has previewed the production-spec Kushaq, its first made-in-India SUV. In case you have had your eyes set on this Creta rival, know that the wraps will be taken off on this date. Excited?

Hyundai i20 N Line Begins Testing

ZW-Hyundai-i20-N-Line

Hyundai could bring its N Line cars to India soon. Our speculation stems from the fact that the Hyundai i20 N Line was spotted testing in Chennai. Mind you, this ain’t the fully blown i20 N but a sportier looking i20 with more oomph and a few performance-oriented tweaks.

Two New Supercars Break Cover

Porsche has revealed the 911 GT3, the track-focussed variant of the 911. It’s lighter than the standard model, gets carbon fibre to keep weight in check, and packs a 4.0-litre flat six-boxer motor that revs all the way up to 9,000rpm! 

ZW-McLaren-Artura

In other news, McLaren has revealed the Artura, the successor to the legendary 570S. It’s the carmaker’s first series-production hybrid that combines a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 and an electric Car. The Artura is also mighty quick, doing 0-100kmph in just 3 seconds.
