Automobile – Aug 2019
Jeep Compass Trailhawk
The Compass from Jeep came to India two years ago as a small but well-performing off-road vehicle. It has now launched its newest model, Trailhawk, which carries all the features of its predecessor but with some notable changes in design. One of the striking features is the black anti-glare decal on the bonnet and the new, dual-toned wheels. The Selec-Terrain system allows you to choose between different terrain modes like wet, mud, and snow, making it easier to drive on slippery roads and for other off-road activities.
Expected to be launched in August, the Kia Seltos has high expectations to meet. The compact SUV is designed to look bold, with a tiger-nose grille and LED headlamps. It boasts a UVO connect feature, which comes with a wide range of safety and connectivity solutions, especially in terms of navigation, security, convenience, and vehicle management. Other major upgrades include the 360-degree camera and wireless charging, along with the 8-inch display.
KTM RC 125
The KTM RC 125 is particularly aimed at motorcycle enthusiasts riding for the first time. It has the brand image, looks and performance of its more famous siblings to appeal to the bike-crazy youth. But it’s not merely about its elegant and stylish design, as it performs as well as the RC 200or RC 390. Altogether, this is the best beginner-level sports bike that makes a fashionable accompaniment for college-going students.
There is a growing demand for electric vehicles, especially electric two-wheelers in the country, and the RV400 is the newest introduction to this class of vehicles. Revolt Intellicorp is a home-grown brand based in Gurgaon. The RV400 is designed for the streets of India, with a wide handlebar and delicate tail section. It is capable of achieving a top speed of 85kmph, with three riding modes: Eco, City, and Sport.
