Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. has launched the refreshed Dio in India at Rs 48,264 (ex-showroom Delhi). The company claims that the Dio is one of its highest selling two-wheelers with over a million units sold. The 2016 edition of the Honda Dio sadly gets nothing more than a new Matt Axis Grey paint scheme as well as a 3D emblem. The Honda Dio is otherwise unchanged aesthetically and mechanically. The price of the updated Dio remains unchanged. Get all details on the 2016 Honda Dio here.

Isuzu India has launched the new D-Max V-Cross at Rs 12.49 lakh (ex-Chennai). The on-road price for this lifestyle offering is Rs 15.20 lakh. It is billed as an Adventure Utility Vehicle, and Isuzu is targeting customers who like a vehicle that has a lot more luggage carrying capacity than an SUV. The pick-up comes with a 2.5-litre, 136PS engine that develops 320 Nm @ 1,800-2,800rpm. The engine conforms to BS-IV norms. The 4WD system is of the shift-on-the-fly type. Isuzu says that the chassis frame is designed using its iGRIP (Isuzu Gravity Response Intelligent Programme) which keeps the body roll in check when driving around tight bends. More details on the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross here.

This could turn out to be a relief for Toyota and Mercedes-Benz whose sales have been affected by the temporary ban on diesel vehicles powered by engines with a displacement of 2.0-litre and above in the NCR. The Ministry of Heavy Industries has appealed the apex court to lift this ban by claiming that the vehicles meet the current emissions norms set by the government.
As reported by ET, the ministry said, “We would plead with the court that any vehicle that meets the prevalent emission norms may be allowed to ply on the roads and its registration may not be banned.” Get all the details here.
