The Honda Amaze facelift will reportedly go on sale in the Indian market on 17 August.
The facelift version of the compact sedan is expected to receive several styling updates, both to its exterior and interior. However, the Amaze facelift will carry forward the same mechanicals. This comes in the form of a 1.2-litre petrol unit producing 89 BHP and a 1.5-litre diesel churning out 99 BHP, mated to either a 5-speed manual or a CVT automatic transmission option.

Jaguar opened bookings for the F-Pace SVR in late June 2021. While an official launch date is yet to be announced, the performance SUV is expected to go on sale sometime this month.
The Jaguar F-Pace SVR is powered by the brand’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine. It produces 543 BHP and 700 Nm and is paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission, sending power to all four wheels.

Tata Motors is all set to launch the Tiago NRG in the Indian market on August 4.
The Tata Tiago NRG is said to be based on the ‘ZX’ trim of the standard hatchback and carries forward most of the same features. However, the NRG model comes with a host of black elements all around the car, which makes it stand out.
The Tiago NRG will be powered by the same 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine making 85 BHP and 113 Nm. It will be paired with a 5-speed manual and AMT transmission.
Next-Gen Maruti Suzuki Celerio
The next-gen Maruti Suzuki Celerio has been one of the most awaited models in the Indian market. Ahead of its launch, the next-gen Celerio was recently spotted without camouflage, during its TVC shoot.
The new-gen Celerio can be seen with a completely revamped exterior styling, with reshaped front and rear bumpers, new headlamps and taillights and much more. The upcoming Celerio is also expected to be part of the brand’s HEARTECT platform.
Maruti, however, is expected to use the same 1.0-litre and 1.2-litre petrol engine options on the next-gen Celerio. It will come paired with either a 5-speed manual or 5-speed AMT.
