Updated Tata Tigor teased ahead of October 10 launch

Tata Motors is readying a mild update for its Tigor compact sedan. Currently, the Tigor is one of the slowest-selling models among the company’s new-generation cars, which also comprises the Tiago, the Nexon and the Hexa.

Tata Motors has released a first set of teasers that give a glimpse of what to expect from the updated Tigor’s exterior. The headlights get chrome inserts and the tail-lights get clear lenses on the top-bit, which give the car a more premium look. Additionally, the updated car will also debut a new paint shade.

On the inside of the car, sources tell us that at least the Tigor's top-spec trim could get a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that doubles as a reverse camera display. This system is likely to be set-up with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Tata Tigor is available with two engine options – a 1.2-litre petrol mill and a 1.0-litre diesel motor. The petrol variant can be ordered with a 5-speed manual or AMT gearbox, while the diesel variant only has a 5-speed manual on offer.

The above updates are to help Tata motors get a bigger slice of the pie in the highly competitive compact sedan segment which includes popular models like the Maruti Suzuki Dzire and the new Honda Amaze.

Peugeot e-Legend Concept Showcased At Paris Motor Show 2018

The e-Legend's styling blends Peugeot’s radical design language with its rich heritage

Peugeot has showcased its very own retro take on the future of mobility by introducing the e-Legend concept at the ongoing Paris Motor Show 2018. With autonomous tech at the heart of the design dynamics, the e-Legend seems like the right blend of futuristic tech and old school looks for an all-electric autonomous sports car.

At first sight, the e-Legend looks like a GT from the future brimming with nostalgia. With its uninhibited design, the concept’s styling re-interprets the popular 504 Coupé from the 70’s. As a result, what you get is a lightweight, athletic and chiselled shape that takes you right down the memory lane. Even the cab is arched towards the back with broad glazed surfaces, while the front and rear signature lights share the three, trademark claws. Peugeot has reinforced the nostalgia value of the concept by introducing it 50 years after the first 504 was sold.

The concept is powered by an all-electric powertrain, that can churn out a sizeable 340kW of power along with a hefty 800Nm of torque, taking the real-world performance close to Tesla territory. Its 100kWh battery pack is enough to last for upto 600km and Peugeot claims its fast charging tech can juice it up to 83 per cent in just 25 minutes. The top speed is capped at 220kmph and the e-Legend can clock the 0-100kmph sprint in under 4 seconds.

There are four driving modes available, including two autonomous and two manual modes on tap. Among the two autonomous modes, there’s a ‘soft’ mode for enhanced drive comfort with minimal connectivity and information display. The ‘sharp’ mode, on the other hand, is for maximum information exchange through the immersive 49-inch curved screen. Focal acoustics on board, along with the curved screen can reportedly provide a totally immersive experience for occupants in autonomous modes.

The two manual modes feature a ‘legend’ mode, with a dashboard reminiscent of the 504 Coupe’s triple dials for information display and a ‘boost’ mode for high-spirited performance.

The latest concept from Peugeot definitely provides us a glimpse into the future of the ever-changing mobility landscape. While not all the tech showcased in the concept would make it to production immediately, full marks to the French carmaker for the oomph the e-Legend oozes.

With its latest concept, Peugeot has also jumped on the autonomous bandwagon like its German peers such as Mercedes and BMW, which have also showcased their vision concepts earlier. And with these exciting new design philosophies, the future of mobility certainly seems bright.

Suzuki Unveils 2019 GSX-R1000, GSX-R1000R At Intermot 2018

The new bikes get more track-specific upgrades besides a few cosmetic ones

Along with the global reveal of the retro-modern Katana, Suzuki pulled the wraps off its 2019 Suzuki GSX-R1000 and GSX-R1000R litre-class motorcycles. While the top-spec GSX-R1000R gets a few track-worthy upgrades, it is the base-spec GSX-R1000 that’s become a lot better, thanks to the tech borrowed from the RR.

The twins now get steel braided brake lines that minimise hose flex and give stronger bite and better brake feel. Both bikes now come equipped with Bridgestone Battlax S11 radials that replace the previous Bridgestone Battlax S10 tyres. Also, eagle-eyed enthusiasts will notice the subtle change in the blue MotoGP livery. It gets a blacked-out bottom fairing and some of the graphics now flow over to the fuel tank.

Suzuki GSX-R1000
For 2019, the base-spec Gixxer gets three colour options: Metallic Triton Blue, Glass Sparkle Black/Metallic Mat Black and a new Pearl Glacier White/Glass Sparkle Black. Suzuki has also added sectioned rim tapes on the wheels for a sportier feel. The quickshifter and auto blipper from the GSX-R1000R now come as standard on the GSX-R1000.

Suzuki GSX-R1000R
Apart from other common updates for the GSX-R series, the top-spec GSX-R1000R gets an adjustable swingarm pivot that allows a greater degree of track customisation. This is in line with the GSX-R1000R’s track prowress. It gets top-of-the-line fully adjustable Showa Balance Free front forks and rear Showa Balance Free monoshock.

Apart from these changes, the 999.8cc in-line four-cylinder motor remains unchanged. It still makes 202PS at 13,000rpm and 117.6Nm at 10,800rpm. While Suzuki had launched both the GSX-R1000 and GSX-R1000R in India initially, it recently discontinued the base-spec GSX-R1000. Nonetheless, we can expect the 2019 GSX-R1000R on our shores some time next year.
