    Kia has recently launched a number of great vehicles like the Telluride crossover, the K5 sedan, the Seltos, the new Sorento, and many more in the US. All this is a part of Kia’s elaborate “Plan S” strategy.

    Kia will officially begin the Plan S early next year. The global CEO, Mr.Song wants the brand to be “more dynamic, stylish, and inventive,” with a stronger emphasis on electric vehicles. Kia promises at least 11 EVs by the year 2025.

    Kia’s upcoming EVs will be built on a new moderately priced Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), shared with Hyundai. With these new EVs, Kia

    expects to generate at least 20 percent of worldwide sales by 2025, and even more by 2029.

    Kia is also expected to introduce a new logo, which was first previewed on the electric Imagine concept car in 2019. This new look will make its debut on a production vehicle next year.

    The new Kia logo features a stark, italicized treatment to the traditional lettering, claiming to give it a more modern look. All three letters now connect to each other, and ditches the signature circular surround. Stay tuned for further updates.


    From what is expected, the new 2020 Jazz receives updates on the exterior. A fresh look at the front and rear is something which is most likely while the overall profile remains similar. The version displayed at the 2020 Auto Expo displays updates like LED DRL’s, Projector headlamps, new dual tone alloy wheels, LED tail lamps.

    The new Jazz at the auto Expo also displays many changes to the interior. A new Dashboard, a two spoke steering wheel, new touch screen infotainment system, white highlights and an all new centre console, magic rear seats, cruise control, auto headlamps and auto wipers.

    We aren’t sure if all the updates would land in India but we do expect the Indian version of the 2020 Jazz to come with some updates, if not all.

    The debuted version also comes with many safety features such as an electric parking brake, ABS, EBD, SENSING technology which is Honda’s collision mitigation braking using a wide angle camera in the front and eight sonar sensors.

    Engine options for the India bound Honda Jazz 2020 could remain the same- the 1.2 Litre i-VTEC that produces 90 PS of power, 110 NM of torque and the 1.5 Litre i-DTEC engine that produces 100 PS, 200 NN of torque would most probably be upgraded to meet BS6 emission norms. The petrol option currently comes with a 5 speed manual and CVT transmission while the diesel option comes mated to a 6 speed manual gearbox only. However, the new Jazz Diesel could receive CVT transmission from the Diesel Honda Amaze.

    When launched officially in India, the 2020 Honda Jazz will compete with Toyota Glanza, Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai i20, Tata Altroz. While it would feel more premium than the outgoing model, prices are expected to stay between Rs. 5.50 Lakhs and Rs. 9.50 Lakhs (ex- showroom).  

     


    The new 3rd generation Hyundai i20 premium hatchback was launched recently and it is significantly better than its predecessor in almost every area. Currently it is available with 3 engine options, 4 variants and 5 transmission options. At present the Magna is considered the entry level variant and is priced at Rs.6.79L (Ex-showroom) and hence it is not the most affordable car in its segment. However, Hyundai will soon launch a new base level, Era variant of the new i20.

    The upcoming base-spec Era model will get only 2 engine options, namely the 1.2-litre Kappa petrol engine which produces 83 PS

    of power through a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 1.5l CRDi turbo diesel engine which produces 100PS of power through a 6 speed manual gearbox.

    The new Era variant will weigh around 80 kilograms lighter than the Magna 1.2-litre petrol variant.

    It will also miss out on several features:

    Rear AC vents

    Rear Power windows

    Electric ORVMs

    Audio system

    Steering mounted audio controls

    Remote locking

    Wheel covers

    Fog lamps

    The features likely to available on the new entry-level Era variant include:

    Manual Central locking

    15” Steel wheels

    Reverse sensors

    Front Power windows

    Manual AC

    MID instrument cluster

    Tilt/Telescopic steering

    Dual airbags

    ABS with EBD

    Pretensioner seatbelts

    With only essential features available, the new base-spec Era variant of the i20 is expected to be priced at Rs.5.99L (Ex-showroom), which is around ?80,000 cheaper than the Magna variant. Stay tuned for further updates on this new base Variant.
