The BR-V is Honda’s new small SUV that is built on the same platform as the Brio, Amaze and Mobilio. In case you are wondering, BR-V expands to ‘bold runabout vehicle’ and Honda admits that this car is meant for an urban clientele and not for those looking for mud-plugging abilities. That said, it fits right into a segment where off-road prowess is rarely sought after. The BR-V rivals the Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster and Nissan Terrano, and here’s a look at how it hopes to differentiate itself.

Honda Motor will recall an additional 20 million Takata-made airbags globally, a newspaper said on Saturday, in a widening scandal that has led to the biggest auto recall in US history.

In the race to capture the burgeoning global smartphone market, British automotive brand Jaguar Land Rover, currently owned by Tata Motors, is all set to launch smartphones and accessories by early 2017.

Bored with politicians taking potshots at each other in India? Come to Germany to witness how Mercedes-Benz wished its rival BMW on its 100th birthday celebrations.

So what, if car sales have been flat for the first two months of 2016 and the Budget has made cars costlier. Automakers are in no mood to rethink or delay launches.

Renault launched the facelift of its popular compact sports utility vehicle Duster in India, starting Rs 8.46 lakh which will go up to Rs 13.56 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Finance minister Arun Jaitley’s call to levy an ‘infrastructure cess’ of up to 4% is set to cause a hike prices of mass market vehicles by up to Rs 2,000 more, while big diesel SUVs and sedans may get costlier by over Rs 1 lakh.

Mercedes might have clawed back to the top spot in India’s luxury car market after three years, but it is not taking the lead for granted.
