The new SUV will also be made at the Halol plant in Gujarat and will have up to 80 percent localization. The Halol plant itself will go through a major makeover with over Rs 5000 Crore investment planned in the next four to five years. MG is owned by Chinese auto giant SAIC group, which is the seventh largest automaker in the world.

Petrol-electric SUV debuts alongside new-gen model for the European market, featuring Honda Sensing as standard. Honda Europe has revealed the new 2019 CR-V Hybrid, which along with the regular range has been detailed for the region. While the new-generation CR-V has been on sale in Australia for some time, Europe has been waiting up until now – it's worth noting our vehicles are sourced from Thailand, while European models are made in the UK. For the first time in Europe, the CR-V is now available as a hybrid, first previewed by the near-production CR-V Hybrid Prototype shown at last year's Frankfurt motor show. The petrol-electric version pairs a 107kW/175Nm 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated Atkinson Cycle petrol engine with a 135kW/315Nm electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. Available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions, the CR-V Hybrid claims a 0-100km/h sprint time of 8.8 seconds and 9.2 seconds respectively, on its way to a top speed of 180km/h . Fuel economy is rated at 5.3L/100km (5.5L AWD) on the combined NEDC cycle, and it emits 120g/km of CO2 per kilometre (126g AWD). The capacity of the battery pack isn't quoted, though it's obviously quite small considering Honda only claims an EV driving range of "around 2km". According to the company, the CR-V Hybrid can run in EV Drive mode for "more than half the time" when cruising at 60km/h to save fuel, while it operates in all-electric mode "approximately one third of the time" when travelling at 100km/h. The level of deceleration using regenerative braking can be adjusted using paddles on the steering wheel – much like the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. Drive is sent to the ground by a 'single fixed-gear ratio', which differs from using a conventional transmission or eCVT by creating "ra direct connection between moving components, resulting in a smoother transfer of torque". "Engineers on the CR-V Hybrid programme have worked hard to ensure that the transfer between power sources – including the engine stop-start function – is virtually imperceptible to the occupants," Honda said in its press release. "The smooth transfer of torque means there is no driveline shunt or undesirable feedback through the pedals or steering wheel, and the near-silent powertrain means the CR-V Hybrid boasts outstanding NVH management." #2019HondaCR-VHybrid #HondaCR-VHybrid #HondaCR-VHybrid2019 Other than the driveline, the CR-V Hybrid has specific menus and interfaces on its driver and infotainment displays, and swaps the gear shifter for buttons. Honda Europe has employed its 'Safety for Everyone' philosophy for the new CR-V, too, meaning all versions come with the Honda Sensing active safety technology suite as standard equipment. These include autonomous emergency braking with forward collision warning, lane-departure warning, road departure mitigation, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and traffic sign recognition with intelligent speed assistance. Other available features include blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, along with a multi-angle rear-view camera. It also appears high-spec versions are available with a colour head-up display, which isn't available on local models, nor the majority of Honda's other products bar the US-market Accord – however, the details of this feature aren't disclosed in the European press release.
Ford has launched an all-new midsize SUV dubbed the 'Territory' in China, and the American carmaker believes new buyers in emerging cities will be eager to grab it. Developed together with the Jiangling Motors Corporation (JMC), the Territory comes available with either a traditional gasoline powertrain, a mild hybrid, or a plug-in hybrid setup. It's slated to go on sale in early 2019, and is part of the company's plan to bring in 50 new vehicles to the market by 2025. Design-wise, the Territory actually looks relatively elegant for a Ford. It's a muscular look accentuated by soft curves and an intricate, premium-looking mesh grille up front. The headlights are reminiscent of the EcoSport's though. Inside, there's a modern dashboard design and layout, a touchscreen infotainment system, a sunroof, and a dark overall interior with leather seats. The company also says it will come with a host of tech, including adaptive cruise control, pre-collision assist, and a variety of other driver-assistance features. #2018FordTerritory #FordTerritory #FordTerritory2018 Ford says the vehicle will be a very affordable offering that will cater to Chinese tastes. Peter Fleet, Ford China CEO, says the Territory is a breakthrough product for the market: "Territory is a key proof point for how we will grow in China. We brought Territory to market with speed, high quality and cost efficiency. It will be affordable for young families and new buyers across China, not just the coastal megacities. And the technology will delight customers." While the manufacturer calls it a midsize SUV, based on photos it doesn’t appear to come with a third row in the back—something customers here have associated with the segment. Proportion-wise, it appears to be more of a crossover than anything else. What do you think? Is the Territory really a midsize SUV?

The Roewe RX3 looks aggressive, young, dynamic and wild with a floated-design grille and headlamp, a unique "electric guitar" taillight, and etc. It boasts a premium, neat and high-tech interior with an embedded touch center console, a panoramic sunroof, and a multi-functional steering wheel and the latest Internet system.
