2018 Toyota Rush Looks Like A Baby Fortuner

Toyota Rush

. The profiles look, ahem, inspired, but we have to say it's a frill-free design. The top-spec variant gets features such as 17-inch alloy wheels, electric ORVMs with turn indicators, and LED tail lamps.

Toyota Rush

The no-fuss design continues on the inside with a tried-and-tested black and beige layout. The stitched portion on the lower half of the dash and the door pads add a bit of premiumness to the cabin. The upright dash houses a 7-inch touchscreen (without Android Auto or Apple CarPlay), the automatic climate control interface and a 12V power outlet. In fact, Toyota has gone a step further and added a power outlet for each row - thoughtful. Other features include a tilt-adjustable steering, keyless entry, start-stop button and an 8-speaker audio system.

On the safety front, the Rush gets six airbags, anti-lock brakes with EBD, vehicle stability control and hill start assist as standard. It's available with a single 104PS/136Nm 1.5-litre motor, paired with either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic.

Toyota Rush

Let's answer the million-dollar question: Is it coming to India? Well, nothing's concrete at the moment. Toyota could have the Rush on display at the upcoming 2018 Auto Expo and gauge response. A solid reason for getting it to India lies in the fact that the segment is up for grabs. The Mobilio has already bowed out, the BR-V is faltering and it's only the family, should make the Rush a worthy contender. Plus, it'll also help the Jap automaker fill a void in its portfolio since it has no products in the Rs 10 lakh to Rs 15 lakh bracket. To top things off, the fleet market would readily lap it up for its seven seats alone.

Enough reasons? We think so

Jeep Compass Recalled In India For Replacement Of Front Passenger Airbag

Jeep Compass Airbag Recall India

Jeep India has issued a recall for its best-seller SUV, the, to replace the front passenger airbag. The manufacturer will reach out to owners in the coming week, and schedule an appointment for airbag replacement. Needless to say, the replacement will be carried out free of cost.

Only 1200 units of the Compass produced between September and November 2017 are said to be affected. "A supplier has advised FCA that, during its airbag module assembly process, loose fasteners may have inadvertently found their way undetected into a small number of modules," reads a press release issued by the manufacturer. Notably, Jeep USA issued a recall for nearly 8000 units of the Compass in North America earlier today.

Jeep Compass Airbag Recalled India

In the event of an impact, the loose fasteners "may pose a hazard" to the passenger. Keeping this in mind, Jeep has advised owners of affected vehicles to not use the front passenger seat till the replacement is carried out. "The Company is unaware of any related injuries, accidents, warranty claims or complaints," says Jeep.

The Compass has been Jeep's big ticket to fame in India. After their halo products such as the Grand Cherokee and the Wrangler failed to make an impression, the baby Jeep has hit the ball out of the park. It has settled into a nice rhythm in the market and is consistently registering sales of over 2000 units per month.

If you own a Compass, wait for Jeep India to contact you. To figure out if your SUV was manufactured between September and November, check the last two digits of the VIN. You'll find it under a tab in the front passenger footwell. If the last three digits read *9H, 10H, or 11H - it is likely that your vehicle is affected.

Lamborghini Urus 11 Days To Go

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

In the wildest-cars-ever-made list, you are sure to find a. And if that list wasn't made by a purist, you would find the Lamborghini LM002 sticking out like a wonderfully sore thumb. The LM002 luxury SUV came into being thanks to a lot of stars aligning, but its spiritual successor is the result of meticulous planning since as early as 2007

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

The is set to be revealed to the world on December 4, 2017 and we know quite a bit about it.

Here's what it looks like

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

Filming a car before it is launched is exciting and in their enthusiasm to show more of the car, Lamborghini inadvertently showed off a bit too much. In a series of videos showing us the different driving modes, one particular shot of the infotainment system on the centre console shows off the front design of the car - without any of the camouflage. Ooops

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

Admittedly, it's not radically different from the Urus concept which was first shown, back in 2012. The production version seems to be sitting lower than the concept and has a larger air-dam too. The lower lip has diffuser like elements on it, and the whole face has a Darth Vader-mask-like feel to it.

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

Shots of the camouflaged cars also show that the Urus now sports production-spec mirrors, unlike the tiny cameras we were shown on the concept. The door-opening buttons which sat flush on the body of the Urus concept have been replaced by conventional pull-type handles placed lower down the doors on the production car.

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

There are a lot of styling cues picked up from Lamborghini's sportscars. The heavily sculpted body, for instance, has enough cuts and creases to be considered from the same family as cars like the Aventador - made very evident by the silhouette drawing of the S(S?)UV.

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

A big lip-spoiler shown in one of the videos will help keep the Lamborghini Urus stable at higher speeds.

Two twin-pipes poking out prominently from the rear also point to the turbocharged V8 beast that will power this sporty SUV.

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

A shot of the new factory where the Urus is being assembled also shows us the skeleton of the SUV, which suggests that under the heavily stylised body will be a very spacious SUV. The section after the rear doors actually looks very accommodating. Lamborghini wants the Urus to be as 'practical' as possible, with some company officials suggesting that this could be a family car too While there may be a lot of luggage space, the very high loading lip and the small hatch door may not make it easy to load and unload stuff.

Inside

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

There are very few details of the Urus' interior that we can see from the teasers sent out by Lamborghini. The fantastical interiors of the Urus concept may be used for inspiration but expect the production version to be more sedate.

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

One of the highlights of the centre console is the large touchscreen infotainment system, which seems to have been lifted from the Volkswagen Group parts bin, with custom Lamborghini skin added to it. The second touchscreen doubles up as the climate control; the two-screen setup is very similar to that of the Audi A8/A7.

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

The big highlight on the centre console is the new drive-mode selector. Designed to mimic the throttles on a plane/boat, the Urus gets a three-lever setup. The middle selector is for the transmission, the left one controls the ANIMA (Adaptive Network Intelligence Management) while the left paddle controls the 'Ego' mode.

ANIMA

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

All modern Lamborghini's have a drive mode selector which can usually toggle between Strada (road), Sport and Corsa (track) modes - these change the way the engine, transmission, suspension, aerodynamics and even rear-steering system (on cars equipped with it) react to driver inputs. The Lamborghini Urus gets three new modes - Sabbia (sand), Terra (dirt) and Neve (ice/snow), 'cause SUV.

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

Changing the modes also changes the displays on the all-digital instrument cluster. In Terra mode, the screen shows vehicle lean angles even though the Urus is not meant to do hardcore off-roading. Meanwhile, one of the screens in Corsa mode shows the power and torque usage.

Underneath it all

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

The Lamborghini Urus will roll off a brand new assembly plant set up alongside the company's historic plant in Bologna, Italy. Lamborghini expects increased demand for the Urus in its largest markets - USA, Canada, Japan, the UK, Germany and Australia - but also expects markets like China, Russia and the Middle-East to be even more receptive of the new 'Super Sport UV'. The integrated plant, which heavily combines the use of highly trained human technicians and state of the art robots should help Lamborghini produce more cars in a shorter time without affecting quality.

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

The shots from the factory give us some glimpse of the Urus. Here's the whole running gear before it's mated with the monocoque shell. Those brake discs are the biggest ones to be fitted on a production car - 440mm at the front and 370mm at the rear, made of carbon-ceramics. The front discs are squeezed by a 10-piston calliper; this braking system is necessary for this more than 2-tonne heavy SUV designed to achieve insane speeds. The 48V anti-roll system and adaptive air suspension components can also be seen.

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

The 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine will be placed at the front, the Urus will be the only front-engined car in Lamborghini's lineup when it is launched. Mid-mounted/rear-mounted engines are not good for cars as bulky as the Urus, Lamborghini learnt that when they tried to make their first SUV (the LM001 prototype) exactly like their sportscars.

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

The Urus' engine develops 650PS of maximum power and 849Nm, propelling this carbon-fibre reinforced polymer bodied SUV to reach speeds of over 300kmph Power is sent through an 8-speed automatic transmission to an AWD system which distributes power in a 40:60 front to rear split. 0-100kmph is achieved in 3.7-seconds

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

The Urus uses the same 'MLB Evo' platform as range topping SUVs from the Volkswagen Group such as the Audi Q7, Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne and the Volkswagen Touareg. It is 5.1-metres long, 2-metres wide and has a 3-metre long wheelbase.

An Urus Performante?

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

According to Motor Trend, Lamborghini officials let slip the fact that the Urus could get the Performante treatment - with the ALA trick-aero system found on the Huracan. This performance version, if it is ever launched could seriously alter the way people perceive the Urus.

More to come

Lamborghini Urus Coming Soon

Lamborghini will let the drums roll till it finally reveals the Urus on December 4, 2017. Expect more teasers and more leaks till then. Stay tuned to ZigWheels for more updates on the 'Super Sport UV' from Lamborghini.

Mini Reveals Its 2018 Dakar Contenders

Mini 2018 Dakar

has revealed team X-raid's 2018 Dakar contenders, and there is a new kid on the block. Apart from a revised and improved MINI John Cooper Works Rally, which came sixth overall in the 2017 edition, there is also a new MINI John Cooper Works Buggy, which has a rear-wheel drive setup. Technically, a two-wheel drive setup will be a disadvantage in a proper off-road rally like the Dakar. However, the rules for such vehicles differ and team X-raid plans to take full advantage of them. Also, these are the most powerful Minis the Dakar Rally has ever seen.

Mini 2018 Dakar

The green light for the development of the MINI John Cooper Works Buggy was given back in February this year by X-raid team manager Sven Quandt, who said, "This has been the biggest project in our company's history so far and we have worked extremely hard at it".

Mini 2018 Dakar

Powering the duo is a 3.0-litre, inline 6-cylinder diesel engine from the BMW 5-Series and 7-Series. However, it has been heavily reworked to generate 340PS of peak power and a massive 800Nm of peak torque. BMW's TwinPower Turbo tech has been optimised to boost power, while the transmission and drivetrain have been heavily worked on as well.

Mini 2018 Dakar

The cars use a specially designed tubular steel frame and is covered by a body made out of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) and Kevlar. Though the exterior looks like a standard Mini, it has been aerodynamically optimised for Dakar. X-raid's team manager said that the John Cooper Works Buggy has undergone intensive testing and hasn't shown any technical problems, which is quite remarkable considering its short development schedule. The John Cooper Works Rally has been improved as well and it now gets a new chassis, greater suspension travel and weight reductions.

Mini 2018 Dakar

X-raid will enter a total of seven cars, three of which will be the John Cooper Works Buggies and the rest comprising of the updated John Cooper Works Rally cars, for the 2018 Dakar. The 40th edition of the Dakar Rally will take place in South America for the tenth time. It will be flagged off from Peru on January 6, 2018 and will pass through Bolivia before ending in Candoacute;rdoba, Argentina on January 20, 2018. The Dakar is one of the most toughest rallies in the world and comprises of extended desert stages, rock and boulder fields and tarmac sections which will take the cars up to an altitude of 4000 meters high in the Andes mountain ranges.

Skoda Renames Octavia Style Plus Variants As LK

Skoda Octavia

to Laurin andamp; Klement (Landamp;K). That means the number of variants remain the same - eight. However, to justify a hike of approximately Rs 31,000 in the asking price, the Czech carmaker has added a 10-speaker (9 speakers plus 1 sub-woofer) Canton sound system (up from an 8-speaker setup) and Landamp;K insignia on the front fenders, door sills and the gear knob. Everything else in the kit remains exactly the same as the axed Style Plus variant. The petrol-powered Octavia Landamp;K costs Rs 21.94 lakh, whereas the diesel Landamp;K is priced at Rs 24.01 lakh.

Skoda Octavia

Launched in July this year, the refreshed Octavia came in to topple the heat it faced, not only from its direct competitors, but also from the SUVs that have been trying to push D-segment sedans into oblivion. Direct rivals to the Octavia include the highly reliable.

Skoda Octavia

The petrol-powered Landamp;K features a 1.8-litre turbocharged engine producing 180PS of power and 250Nm of torque. The diesel-fed Landamp;K, on the other hand, houses a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine that produces 143PS of power and 320Nm of torque. While the petrol motor comes mated to a 7-speed automatic gearbox and returns a claimed 15.1kmpl, the diesel comes with a 6-speed auto and is good for 19.5kmpl. The range topper in the Octavia lineup wears an badge and its 2.0-litre turbo-petrol pumps out 230PS/350Nm. That added power and some sporty character comes at a price of Rs 25.49 lakh (ex-showroom India).
