  2. Auto Expo 2018

    Tata X451 premium hatchback spotted Based on Tata Motors’ new Advanced Modular Platform (AMP), the X451 will slot in above the Tiago in the carmaker’s line-up. Tata’s new design language, called Impact Design 2.0, will feature on the model, along with uprated versions of the Tiago’s 1.2-litre petrol engine and 1.05-litre diesel motor. The Nexon’s 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine may also feature at a later date. Expect a launch date for the model sometime in 2019. It will be rolled out from the company’s Sanand factory in Gujarat, which is gearing up to be the production hub for all cars built on the AMP architecture. A test mule of the new X451 hatchback was spied a few months ago that revealed a silhouette not too dissimilar to the Tiago but on closer examination, the longer wheelbase and length was noticed. This new hatchback will be as much as 200mm longer than the Tiago (Length: 3,746mm) but will still sit under the crucial four-meter mark in order to slot itself in the lower tax slab. Another aspect that was noticed from the spy shot was the raked windshield and tapering roofline, along with a C-pillar-mounted rear door handle, which will soon be seen on the new Maruti Swift as well.

  3. Kerala: A must Visit Destination

    @Ann Maria your review on Kerala was short and sweet. I had been to Munnar with my family and we stayed there for 11days. We undertook short trips to nearby tourist spots otherwise we enjoyed our stay at the hills of Munnar.
  4. Gypsy

    @haranhari039 your query is not clear, do you want new shock ups for your 2004 Gypsy or you want new pickup suggestion with good suspensions?
  5. Long drive Goa to Kol

    @Biplab if you carry out tubeless tyre repair yourself that would be great help. Watch few YouTube videos. Carry a decent flashlight. Lot’s of water. Make sure coolant level, oil level and brake fluid level is in working limit. Drive with low headlight beam and don’t try to teach anyone coming from opposite side. Speed less than 100km per hour. Once completing the journey post your travelogue.

  8. The second generation Veloster has finally been revealed at the ongoing Detroit motor show! Here are some pics Source
  9. S-Cross or Ford Ecosport

    S-Cross hands down. Ecosport is alternativce for Brezza. Scross is better equiped, has more space and new model in blue looks like a BMW
  10. Safety - Ecosport (6 Airbags in to variant). Rest all have 2. Mileage - Vitara Brezza Maintenance Cost - Vitara Brezza Tata Nexon/WRV are very good products. While Nexon offers good styling and feature list with amazing ride and handling, it looses on fit and finish and little ergonomics. WRV - It misses on features and feels under-powered (petrol). Diesel has NVH issues. Ford Ecosport - It is a very very capable product. Facelifted model is a delight. It is just the maintenance and running cost of ford cars that too compared to Maruti Suzuki that it starts feeling expensive. Brezza - It has best of all worlds. From features to maintenance to mileage to handling etc. So my recommendation would be - Petrol - Ecosport Diesel - Brezza (Ecosport if you want to spend more)
  11. Honda city diesel automatic

    No. Honda has no plans for Diesel Automatic as of now. Also, Diesel popularity is also limited to SUVs now and sales for hatches and sedans for diesel are declining constantly. Petrol is back into the game.

Maruti Suzuki will offer customisation options like in Ignis/Brezza. Dual tone will be exclusive to Z and Z+ only. AMT will be on offer with both Petrol and Diesel on V/Z and Z+ variants The features in these cars are exactly the same. Only Dzire has an extra rear armrest and rear AC vent.

  23. SKODA RAPID FIRE ISSUE

    These same kind a issue happened to me a day ago there was kinda short circuit and smoke came out from the bonnet. Today the survey of the car happened and they quoted me approx Rs 30-40k as all the wire were burnt my car is under warranty and also have a insurance. The skoda people are saying the wireing doesnt come under warranty and nor in insurance so i will have to bear the cost. A month back i had gone to the service centre for a complaint of some noise and vibration from the engine and suspension they said it is normal and will go away after comtinues driving for 25-30 mins,now i feel that there was already some defects a month back but they ignored. Really upset with skoda brand it is a big disappointment. any one who has a knowledge about this please help me.

    Hi everyone, I've newly joined the forum. I own a bimmer F30 luxury line + and a Suzuki Baleno. My main area of interest is to know more about bimmer experiences of owners and latest updates. I feel there is a serious lack of cummunity activity of BMW owners in India and I hope this platform will solve that issue!
