We already have shared the information that Ford will be launching an updated 2017 variant of the existing Ecosport in India before they actually bring in the facelift variant of the compact SUV which was showcased at the 2016 New York Auto show towards the end of this year.

We also have reported that the My 2017 Ecosport Titanium+ variant exclusively will get a completely new 8 inch touchscreen infotainment system for the very first time which will be an upgrade from the current unit. Today we have got our hands on some spy images of the updated 2017 Ecosport variant which were clicked by Mr. Nagaraj Muthuswamy of Ford EcoSport Owners & Fans Facebook page.

The completely new touchscreen infotainment system gets integrated with features like satellite navigation system, DVD player, Door Ajar warning. While the Screen also doubles up and projects images when the rear view camera is active.

Apart from the touchscreen infotainment system MY 2017 Ecosport also sports a new and chunky 17 inch alloy wheels which has been borrowed from the Ecosport sold in the other International markets. The new wheels also get wrapped with 205/50/R17 rubber. However expect these new set of wheels to also be exclusive to the top end Titanium+ variant only.

Unfortunately Ford India has actually decided to delete some of the features which were available with the current Ecosport in this new 2017 variant. The list of features includes driver seat armrest, cooled glove box, leather-wrapped handbrake and gear shift knob etc.

Watch The Horrific Accident Where The Women Is Hit By Car Driven By Juvenile: Video

Although we don’t share much of accident related videos on our website but this was something which we thought will share with our readers. This incident took place recently in south-west Delhi’s Sagarpura on New Year’s Day.

As you can clearly watch that a Maruti Ertiga loses control as it swerves and slides towards a women who has just stepped out of her house hitting her and then crashing against another Wagon R which also went out of the same gate from where the women also passed. The Ertiga hit the Wagon R in great speed overturning the hatchback completely. The upper body of the women was completely trapped under the overturned hatchback. Luckily the women survived and people standing nearby helped her to get out from under the car.

The Ertiga which crashed with the women and then the Wagon R was driven by a 17 year old who was a resident of neighbouring Dasrath Puri. Fortunately Police took strict action and sent the minor to the juvenile justice home. While the women suffered severe injuries to her head and spinal cord went through a major operation.

Now the reason why we shared the video because this is actually an eye opener for those parents who have kids in their home. They should never ever leave the keys of their car in their children’s hand especially if they are minor like this boy.

To begin with the top end trim gets stylish diamond cut alloy wheels, side turn indicators integrated on the ORVM’s, a thick chrome line bar in between the two taillamps at the rear. Although the front profile of the sedan is not highlighted in these images but gets the same face like the Tata Tiago hatchback. However we do feel that the top end trim might get projector units as well instead of the regular halogen units. The biggest advantage of the Tata’s new compact sedan is that it promises to offer an impressive amount of boot space at the rear. Tata claims that the Kite 5 compact sedan will offer around 420 Litres of boot space.

Coming to the interior expect the upcoming compact sedan to get a completely an all Black interior with some contrasting colour accents. As far as the drivetrain are concerned expect this new compact sedan to share the same 1.2 Litre Revotron petrol and 1.05 Litre Revotorq diesel engine under the hood. Both this engines will be paired to a 5 speed manual transmission however there can be an AMT transmission on offer as well.

Expect the Tiago based compact sedan to hit the showrooms in mid 2017 and wit will take on some other rivals like the Honda Amaze and upcoming Chevrolet Beat Essentia sedan.

Jeep VS Plane is really an odd combination by the way
Can A Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Beat A Plane On Track: Video

This is definitely one interesting video where a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT takes on a Plane on Track. Well! You read that right this SUV will take on a plane on the race track. Now that the Jeep brand has made their mark on the Indian market and already launched three new cars including the Grand Cherokee SRT this is definitely a instruction video which actually will give those an idea what the Grand Cherokee SRT is actually capable of.

Here in this video you can watch the Grand Cherokee which packs a V8 motor that packs about 461 Hp of peak power. The SUV has got four wheel drive and many other equipments which actually makes this SUV we ll equipped and appropriate for this battle. On the other hand you have actually got a single seater plane which according to the pilot packs about 107 Hp of peak power. Now although the power on the plane seems to be less compared to the massive power that the Jeep has but this definitely wont effect the race much because obviously an aeroplane will be lot faster than the Jeep because it obviously wont have much obstruction once it takes off from the ground.

Watch and enjoy the video because this is really an interesting video which I am sure all of you will enjoy watching.

Both the SUV and sedan has been discontinued from the Indian market
Renault Unlisted The Koleos SUV & Fluence Sedan From Their Official Website

From what it looks like Renault India has discontinued the Koleos SUV from the Indian market. They have removed the SUV from their Indian official website as well Apart from the SUV it also seems that Renault has also discontinued their D segment sedan Fluence as well because this sedan too has been removed from their official website.

Although Renault hasn’t released any official statement yet but perhaps this was the right move for them. Both the Koleos and the Fluence does not have many takers in the Indian market mainly because of their steep pricing compared to their rivals. Some reports suggests that the manufacturer now wants to shift their focus entirely towards those particular products which has atleast 80 percent localisation and not to those products which are completely knocked down (CKD) and semi-knocked down (SKD) units.

Although the Koleos was assembled in India at the auto manufacturers plant but the kits were imported and as a result of all that the Koleos was actually priced way above its rivals which was the main reason of its low sales figures.

Renault has also plans to launch some new products which will be heavily localized and which also means that the overall prices will be priced quite aggressively.
