Weekly Car News Fix: Nissan Magnite, New Hyundai i20, Hummer EV, Mercedes GLC AMG And Maruti Suzuki Jimny


Highly anticipated unveils, exciting spy shots, and confirmed launch dates

Another eventful week in terms of cars has passed by. The past seven days saw a bunch of unveils, a couple of spy shots and an awaited launch date. Let’s dig into the top picks from the past week’s headlines.

Nissan Magnite Revealed

Nissan’s much awaited debut into the sub-4m SUV segment has finally been revealed. The sophisticated looking Magnite has everything it takes to stand its ground in a hotly contested segment when it comes to looks. Whether it can turn around the fortunes the Japanese carmaker in India is yet to be seen. Check out the Magnite here.

New Hyundai i20 Launch Date Inches Closer

After being spotted at dealerships, with some even taking unofficial pre-launch bookings, the third-gen i20 is all set to launch by the first week of November. Hyundai’s premium hatchback looks quite identical to its European counterpart, but is that it? Find out here.

The Newest Humvee Is Also The Greenest

The revival of the Hummer tag by GMC gets all the power output bragging rights, but with a catch. The latest version of the Hummer sees the bulky gasoline burners replaced by three electric motors which combine to produce 1000PS. Yes, the new Hummer is all-electric, and yes, it can ‘walk’ sideways. Take a look here.

First Locally Assembled Mercedes-Benz AMG’s Launch Date

India will see its first domestically assembled Mercedes-Benz AMG model launch on November 3. The GLC 43 Coupe will be the first CKD (completely knocked down) AMG and will carry a price tag of Rs 80 lakh (ex-showroom). That’s Rs 17.30 lakh more than the standard model. For more details, head here.

The News Every Gypsy Fan Has Been Waiting For

We’ve saved the best for last. The Maruti Suzuki Jimny has been spotted testing on Indian roads for the first time since it was showcased at the Expo 2020. Though the model spotted was the 3-door version, expect the long-wheelbase 5-door version to be the one offered here. Also, Maruti Suzuki might just revive the Gypsy name. Fingers crossed! Head here to take a look.
