Mahindra XUV300 to launch on February 14
It’s official: Mahindra’s latest compact SUV, the XUV300, will launch in India on February 14. The Indian carmaker is looking to take on more than just compact SUVs such as the Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza; its rivals will also include the Hyundai Creta. Bookings for the XUV300 officially opened last week (for an amount of Rs 20,000) and based on Chief of Sales & Marketing, M&M Ltd. Veejay Ram Nakra’s statement, Mahindra is likely to price the model between Rs 8-12 lakh (ex-showroom). While the XUV300 shares its underpinnings with the SsangYong Tivoli, the platform has been modified so that the model falls under the crucial four-metre mark. Despite the shorter length, the Mahindra XUV300 is claimed to be the widest (and with the longest wheelbase) in its class. Another aspect where the XUV300 is expected to punch above its class is in its equipment. Even the base W4 variant will have airbags, ABS, disc brakes on all four wheels, LED tail-lights and all four power windows, while the top-spec W8 (O) is expected with front parking sensors, 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, a sunroof and seven airbags. There will be two engines on offer – a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol that makes 200Nm of torque and the 1.5-litre diesel engine from the Marazzo that makes 123hp and 300Nm of torque. At launch, a 6-speed manual will be standard on both engines and an automatic option will be introduced at a later date.

'A three-generation project': riverside development divides Indian city
The next 15 megacities #6: New facilities by the Sabarmati will provide Ahmedabad with much-needed public space, but at what cost?As the sun dips below the horizon, young lovers make themselves more comfortable on benches overlooking the Sabarmati river. Walkers stroll along the concrete promenades, and mothers enjoy a moment of respite under newly planted saplings while their children play in the adjoining gardens.Few Ahmedabad residents could have imagined this scene a couple of decades ago. Back then the Gujarati city’s tidal river banks were lined with slum housing – precariously constructed on land polluted by industrial effluent and untreated sewage, and home to some of the most marginalised communities in the city.This is a project just for beautification. No environmental assessment has been doneBy 2035 another 15 cities will have populations above 10 million, according to the latest United Nations projections, taking the total number of megacities to 48.Before: the Sabarmati river in Ahmedabad in the 1980s. After: the same spot today. Continue reading... [...]
