The concept featured an interesting and fresh design and was powered by a three-cylinder 110 PS petrol engine which sent power to all four wheels.

Mechanically (and visually to an extent), the concept has what it takes to compete with the modern day crossovers.

It is driven via a 5-speed automatic transmission to return a fuel efficiency of 17.6 kmpl.

Honda Vision XS-1

Seating for seven passengers in a three-row layout, crossover body and Honda’s modern engines. What’s not to like about the Honda Vision XS-1?

If the XS-1 is put to production, we think it would be a rival to the Mahindra XUV500.

Based on Honda’s original ‘Man Maximum Machine Minimum’ philosophy, the Vision XS-1 fuses together two different values of sporty exterior styling and spaciousness, in a compact body.

The Vision XS-1 will form the basis for a generation of vehicles as it has been laid out as the proposal for a next generation vehicle featuring 3-rows with 7-seats with sliding doors and large openings in a compact crossover utility vehicle body.

The Vision XS-1 is a two-door concept which slide to open providing access to the front and the rear seats. The absence of the B-pillar makes the ingress even simpler for the rear passengers.

The seating layout is 2+3+3 with decent space at the rear for passengers. The concept gets chunky tyres for the rugged look.

Tata Nano Twist Active with F-Tronic

Tata showcased two Nano concepts at the show. The Tata Nano Active features an opening tailgate, while the Tata Nano F-Tronic gets an automatic gearbox.

We would like to see a Nano which incorporates both these features, not to mention the new steering wheel design.

The F-Tronic system is supplied by Magneti Marelli who is a technology supplier to Formula 1 teams.

The car features an electro-hydraulic mechanism which uses an electronic control unit and a hydraulic system to supervise clutch usage and gear shifting, allowing the driver to shift gears without a clutch. Tata explains the shifting action is as “smooth as a finger shift” and the Transmission Control Unit (TCU) is at the heart of the system that manages the gear changes.

The Tata Nano Twist Active Concept is a strong hint at the future look of the Tata Nano when it heads for a cosmetic refresh.

A wider smiling grille is set on the front with a light catcher around the new front and rear bumper, a new bonnet trim, black trim around the daylight opening area and a partitioned headlamp sum up the external changes.

The main feature on this car, however, is the openable tailgate seen on the Nano for the first time.

Chevrolet Adra Concept

Chevrolet is not doing well in India, and its new launches such as the Enjoy, Sail and U-VA, look dull and boring.

With a sub-4 meter length and a typical ‘American Chevy’ like styling, the India-designed Chevrolet Adra could reverse the fortunes of the company.

Renault KWID Concept

Renault understood what Indians want after the launch of the Duster in 2012. But let’s face it, the Duster is essentially a Dacia and in areas such as styling, features and interior, the built-to-budget SUV looks a bit pale.

The Renault KWID could be an ideal second crossover for Renault with its futuristic styling, advanced engines and a modern interior.

We certainly want to see what the production KWID looks like.
