2017 Hero Super Splendor i3S
It’s no surprise that the brand ‘Splendor’ is responsible for the Hero MotoCorp fame and success stories one would find in its record books. The Splendor has seen several iterations in the 100cc segment, ranging from the conventional commuter to a café racer. Hero did intend to cash in this popularity of Splendor even in the segment of 125cc commuters, courtesy the Super Splendor.

In its entire span of existence, the Super Splendor has undergone a number of minimal updates, which have managed to keep the motorcycle fresh in order to face the tide of time effectively.

Hero enjoys an unprecedented success when it comes to the commuter class of 100-110cc motorcycles.

Then came the Maestro Edge and Duet, which further strengthen the scooter lineup for Hero in the country. However, the sales of the Maestro Edge have turned out to be a bit lower than what Hero had expected. So now, Hero has tried to infuse some novelty in the Maestro Edge for the year 2017 by adding a couple of new features to the scooter.

2018 Maruti Suzuki Dzire
Since there is still some time before Maruti launches the new generation Swift hatchback in India, the Swift Dzire is definitely the next big thing that we all have been looking forward from the Indian auto manufacturer. Now that we know Maruti will be launching the new generation Swift Dzire in India on 16th May 2017 thus expect the bookings to commence from 1st of May onward.

Maruti had already made quite a name for themselves when they introduced the first generation Dzire back in 2008 and now with the new generation Dzire they surely expecting bigger sales figures. What is surprising is also the fact that Maruti has even dropped the Swift nameplate from the car to give the compact sedan its own identity.
The best thing is that the new generation Dzire will be based on a whole new platform which has helped in reducing the overall weight of the car.The only bad news is that The Dzire will continue to be powered by the same 1.2-litre VVT, while the diesel is the 1.3 DDiS, we also do not expect the numbers to be a whole lot different than the existing car.
