Ford Bronco 2020 - All You Need To Know


Ford Bronco 2020 - All You Need To Know

Ford Bronco Lifestyle SUV

After it was stopped in 1996, Ford has been planning to re- introduce the Bronco. News is that the Bronco has a smaller sibling as well – the Bronco Sport which will be available with three different types of grilles- Modern, Classic, and Custom.

Ford says the new Bronco will be a body- on- frame 4x4 built to take on some of the toughest terrains. Features include a solid rear axle and an Air Roof while Ford’s Terrain Management System, Trail Control and a novel active suspension could be optional features.

Also on the cards could be a more hardcore version of the Bronco called the Wolftrak and a raptor version most probably having a V8 engine. Speaking of the looks, the Bronco sports a boxy and edgy design with round headlamps, thereby resembling with the original Bronco.

Many patent applications suggest what appears to be a very unique concept. Several parts of the Bronco’s body could be removable like doors and the roof to allow open- air motoring. Ford has also patented a safety system which uses telescopic beams to protect drivers in a crash when the doors are removed. The Bronco could come with 10 colours as per the leaked color palette.

With the ongoing trend of Ford’s EcoBoost Engines, the Bronco could get one as well. It could most likely receive a 2.3 litre EcoBoost unit that produces 270 Horsepower and 420 NM of torque mated to a 10 Speed Automatic. A hybrid and a V8 engine are also expected.

It is also highly likely that the Ford Bronco could receive the Twin Turbocharged 2.7 litre V6 engine from the F-150 that produces 325 HP and 542 NM of torque. The off roader would be produced at Ford’s plant in Wayne, Michigan. From the looks of it, Ford plans to offer the Bronco in America initially as there are no reports of plans to offer the Bronco in other markets globally. However, Ford has filed for a Trademark on Bronco in Europe. That should say a lot.

The Bronco could be priced around 35,000$ in USA. It was expected to be featured at the 2020 New York Auto Show that got cancelled. We expect the official unveiling to occur sometime in the last quarter of 2020.

    Hyundai Motor has unveiled their next contender for the premium hatchback segment in India- the 2020 Hyundai i20. The new avatar is entirely different from what it was earlier and thankfully, we can call this an upgrade because the changes are not just cosmetic outside. The changes take place inside the cabin and to the engines as well. The Indian version of the 2020 Hyundai i20 is expected to have most of the features offerer in the European Spec. India launch of the Hyundai i20 2020 is expected to be around August 2020.

    The Hyundai i20 has been one

    of the most popular hatchbacks in India, giving tough competition to its rivals like Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Honda Jazz, Toyota Glanza and Tata Altroz. While it has been a hot selling unit for Hyundai Motor in India, the upgraded version is expected to do even better considering the features on offer and the price.

    Yes, the 2020 Hyundai i20 is expected to be priced between Rs 6 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi) and Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi) in India. Tempting? You must check out the features below then.


    The Europe-spec 2020 Hyundai i20 displays a big new grille in the front. Thankfully, the headlamps too have been redesigned and are LED units with LED DRLs. Not only that, the front and rear bumpers have been redesigned. The new model also gets 17- inch alloy wheels.

    The rear hasn't been left out by Hyundai either. The new Hyundai i20 2020 gets LED taillights, shark fin antenna and rear spoiler. We are expecting these features to be made available in the India-spec i20 2020 as well but features like 17 inch alloys maybe left out keeping in mind Indian driving conditions.

    When it comes to the new Hyundai i20 2020's interior, the Europe-spec car will get a new 10.25-inch digital cluster and centre touchscreen connected to a Bose audio system with eight speakers. Wireless charging and Hyundai's BlueLink connectivity technology will also be included. A test mule was spotted in India whose cabin looked similar to the Europe Spec version with Audi- esque vents and 4 spoke steering wheel featured in the 2020 Hyundai Creta as well.


    Coming to the heart of the matter, the 2020 i20 may have a few engine options which of course will be BS 6 compliant:
    1. A 1.0-litre T-GDi with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system
    2. A 1.2-litre MPi unit
    3. 1.5 litre detuned diesel mill from the Kia Seltos

    New Hyundai i20 Colours

    The Europe-spec Hyundai i20 2020 gets as many as 10 colour options, with four being new. The fresh ones are Intense Blue, Aurora Gray, Aqua Turquoise and Brass. Among the already available are Polar White, Sleek Silver, Phantom Black, Dragon Red, Tomato Red and Slate Blue. There is an option for a Phantom Black roof also.

     


    Suzuki’s popular Swift has been around for many years. After all, the Japanese manufacturer has been giving it all the important touches and updates over time, making it seem fresh and ageless.

    After its latest update in 2016, the Suzuki Swift has now been launched in Japan with many changes and we could expect to see this in India towards the last quarter of 2020. Not only are the updates just cosmetic, we expect to see some changes related to engine and performance too!

    Expected Features: The new Swift won’t have too many significant changes in terms of looks. Small changes like

    a new grille and a redesigned front bumper could make it look like it got a much needed change but the overall look remains the same. Images also suggest a new look in terms of skirts and new alloy wheels. Auto folding ORVMs, cruise control feature, a new 4.2 inch MID colour display and new upholstery to refresh the feel inside could be a part of the new Facelifted Swift.  However, not much could be said about additions in terms of safety features as they remain the same. Electronic Stability Control and hill hold assist could new additions to the AMT variants.

     

    Price:
    The new facelifted Maruti Suzuki Swift is expected to cost Rs. 20,000 more than the outgoing model. So prices could start at around 5.5 Lakhs and go all the way upto Rs. 8.20 Lakhs (Ex- Showroom Delhi).

     

    Engine and Performance: The new Facelifted Maruti Suzuki Swift 2021 could be launched with a 1.2-litre DualJet petrol engine as seen on the facelifted Maruti Suzuki Dzire. The new engine produces 90PS power, 7PS more than the current Swift’s petrol engine while the torque remains unchanged at 113NM. We do think that’s a good step taken towards offering more power.

    In terms of fuel efficiency, we expect the new Swift to fetch similar mileage figures as the existing Maruti Suzuki Swift. Howver, the engine in question comes with an idle start-stop feature which could help improve overall fuel efficiency. Speaking of the transmission, Maruti will continue to offer the facelifted Swift the 5 speed manual and AMT gearbox. Keeping in mind the BS6 norms, there would be no diesel engine on offer in the facelifted Swift.

     

    So, would the new Facelifted Maruti Suzuki Swift make you want to buy it? Or, would you consider any of the other hatchbacks in the market like the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, Ford Figo, Ford Freestyle, Hyundai i20 and the Volkswagen Polo?
