SCOOP! Market name for Tata H5X SUV to be Harrier
The production version of the Tata Motors’ H5X has been given the market name, Harrier. The model is already known internally as ‘Harrier’ which follows Tata Motors' trend of codenaming its models after birds before launch. However, this time round, Tata Motors has decided to finalise that as a market name and is expected to make an official announcement sometime next week. Tata’s chosen moniker for its newest SUV isn’t completely unique as Toyota already has a mid-size SUV called Harrier in its global portfolio. However, the identical name is unlikely to cause much confusion in India since the Toyota Harrier, which is available in markets including Japan and Malaysia, is not sold in our market. Tata Motors is beefing up its sales network ahead of the model’s launch in India, which is expected to take place in the first half of 2019. Interestingly, potential buyers will be in for a richer experience as the carmaker is planning to give its dealerships a premium touch, with a possibility of a demarcating a special area to showcase the H5X (and future premium models). Marking its debut at the Auto Expo 2018, the SUV concept grabbed eyeballs with its unique design, not seen before on a Tata model. In fact, pictures of a close-to-production test mule, scooped by Autocar India in February, revealed that design will stay largely true to concept and the model will retain the high-set LED headlights. Other stylistic elements include a new, more defined interpretation of Tata’s trademark ‘humanity line’ that connects the headlights and grille. The SUV will be the first Tata product to carry the new Impact Design 2.0 design language. Set to be built at Tata's plant in Chakan, Pune, the SUV is expected to be powered by a 2.0-litre diesel engine in two states of tune and the model will be offered in five and seven-seat configurations. What do you think of the Harrier name for the production Tata Motors H5X? Let us know in the comments section below. [...]

Review: Forma Ice Pro Flow boots review
Having worn-out my four-year old Alpinestars SMX-6 (vented) boots to shreds – well, almost – I was looking for a worthy replacement. How exactly do you reduce a pair of boots to shreds? By wearing them every day for four years through sand, snow, dirt, slush and rain, and regular racetrack outings as well! As you can tell, I’m extremely demanding of my boots and, frankly, quite unapologetic about it, too. I was on the lookout for a more serious, racier pair of boots this time around. Our bikes are only getting faster (er, even if I’m not), and I’m riding more than ever before – touch wood! Naturally, I thought I’d end up with yet another pair of Alpinestars (my first road boots were SMX-5s), until I made the inevitable phone call to Vicky Jaising, an authority on motorcycling and gear, and the man behind the Performance Racing Store in Mumbai. A mention of ‘Forma boots’ was made and, tempted, I made my way to the store, a kaleidoscopic array of top-notch riding gear. Forma’s race-boot line-up includes the Ice Pro (non-vented; Rs 21,000), Ice Pro Flow (vented; Rs 21,000) and its rider replica versions (Rs 24,000; Danilo Petrucci, Karel Abraham, Lorenzo Savadori have one to their name). I was to try the Ice Pro Flow, which I eventually bought. Four months of use (or abuse, rather) later, I’m convinced I got a good deal. Coming from a more conservative league of boot design (courtesy Astars), I found the Formas loud and complex at first. The white-on-black exterior needs patient cleaning, courtesy the comprehensive racy layers it sports – namely the Flex Control System Pivot, the vented heel plate, the gearshift pad and the substantial toe slider. The interior gets a red, breathable ‘air-mesh’ lining which feels premium and comfortable, and unlike some other boot brands, Forma makes its toe-boxes generous, which is great for those of you with wide feet. Being a top-notch, race-spec boot means they aren’t as plush as my SMX-6s, but that’s a small compromise in exchange for far more serious protection. The Ice Pro Flow features three levels of fastening, primary being a zipper that leads to a Velcro mechanism running along the side of the boot. Secondary, but crucial to its design, is the FCS Pivot system, which tightens around the calf area using an easy-to-use and sturdy ratchet. This mechanism lends the boot a secure, snug fit, something that is further aided by the front-fastening system. This ‘system’ is no more than an adjustable rubber strap that extends over the top of your foot, but it adds to the sensation of security; I don’t know of its exact benefits in the event of a crash. So far, the Flow has fared impressively through daily wear. Its ventilation level is seriously good and I like the overall fit and comfort, even when I’m boot-bound for long days in the office. The steel-finish toe-sliders have picked up a few scuffs after chaotic stints in traffic but, that aside, the boots have held up well – even after two off-road stints (here we go again!). Priced at Rs 21,000, the Ice Pro Flow boots are certainly among the most affordable in this segment, and are a terrific deal. Let’s hope I can say the same, four years from now!

'Everything is gone': satellite images in Myanmar show dozens of Rohingya villages bulldozed

New Volkswagen Touareg revealed
Volkswagen has finally taken the wraps off the third-generation Touareg SUV. The German carmaker calls the new Touareg the “biggest leap forward” in the history of the SUV, as they attempt to push their flagship model further into premium territory. The new-gen SUV, unveiled in Beijing, has been redesigned with new technology, road-focused styling and a revamped interior that is dominated by VW’s new Innovision Cockpit. The new Touareg will come with a 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine generating 278hp and 599Nm of torque. A second 3.0-litre V6 diesel making 225hp and 500Nm of torque will follow in autumn, as will a 3.0 V6 petrol with 330hp and 450Nm of torque. In some international markets like China, the Touareg range will also include a 357hp plug-in hybrid that will arrive in late 2019. That variant is likely to go on sale in Europe, although no date has been set. A 409hp/900Nm 4.0 V8 diesel will be offered in some markets, likely including the UK, from late 2018. All of the engine options are powered through an eight-speed automatic gearbox, with standard all-wheel drive featuring a centre differential lock, with five standard and four optional drive modes. To aid driving dynamic, the Touareg features electromechanical active roll compensation, which adjusts the anti-roll bars to smooth the ride when cornering. It also has air suspension to boost ride, and intelligent all-wheel steering to aid handling. The new Touareg is built on the same VW Group MLB platform as the latest Porsche Cayenne, the only exterior part the two now share is the front windscreen. It is wider and longer than its predecessor but falls a bit short in length. The dashboard is built around VW’s new Innovision Cockpit, which merges a 15-inch infotainment touchscreen with a 12-inch digital instrument cluster. The customisable infotainment screen also controls features such as smartphone integration, air conditioning and seat massage functions, while analogue controls remain for the volume and other frequently used switches. Standard equipment includes LED lighting all round, multi-coloured interior LED lighting and a 1,270mm long sliding panoramic roof. There is no news on the new Touareg’s India launch as of now. [...]
