Unsure if its sourced from Peugeot, but they do have an engine. Look up Land Rover Defender - Hard Top | Land Rover UK. Below is what the site says:

2.2 litre 4 cylinder diesel engine
Defender’s new 2.2 litre Diesel engine produces an impressive 360Nm of torque. With 90 percent of peak power constantly on tap from as low as 2,200rpm to over 4,350rpm, it provides maximum muscle for tough working environments.

With the introduction of Land Rover’s new Diesel Particulate Filter, not only is the new Defender engine fully compliant with the latest N1 EU5 emissions legislation, it now delivers an historic new top speed of 90mph. The engine is designed to meet modern emissions legislation and features an Anti-Stall device, which intelligently adjusts the fuel required when the engine is working at low speed.

Performance (Manufacturer's Estimates)
: 2.2 litre 4 cylinder diesel engine
Maximum speed mph 90
Acceleration 0-60mph seconds 14.7
Fuel Economy: 90
Urban mpg (L/100km) 24.6 (11.5)
Extra urban mpg (L/100km) 31.0 (9.1)
Combined mpg (L/100km) 28.3 (10.0)
Combined CO emissions (g/km) 266
Drive by noise/dB 75

Same for me, would have preferred Merlin! But as per Sorabjee from Autocar in his tweet, mentioned Merlin was just the codename, @expo New Safari to be called Safari Storm.

Mahindra - Ssangyong

I just came across a webcast from Mahindra, but missed the initial launches.

Does anyone have any idea what all cars / SSangyong SUV's did they launch today ?

The official site of the Auto Expo (Auto-expo) stops loading after a while. Does any one know of any other site where one can access the live streams? Thank you.

Mods and all,
buncha thanks for the live action and reports. Being a hard core biker, I would really be elated if someone brings some live action from HMSI stall?

I am eagerly waiting to hear about some affordable I4 bikes (CB400/CBR600F)

Abhishek

Thanks, bro.

Though slightly mixed feelings on the styling - main grouse is the grille. The rest of it seems integrated. Importantly for 4x4 enthusiasts, it still has 4H / 4L.

Did anyone notice the Music system in the new Safari? when TATA did all this to give Safari a new look completely why couldnt they integrate a decent OEM music system which would gel in nicely with the interior.

Just my opinion guys.

Just one word after seeing the new safari Storm: WOW!

This is the best looking SUV for me in the market right now. It looks way better then even the new Fortuner. Any hints on the pricing yet?
