  1. Buying advice

    Hello fellow automobile enthusiasts, My wife drives a 2012 Fiat Punto diesel and I drive a 2014 Petrol automatic Skoda Octavia so she’s used to driving both manuals and automatics. My wife’s car has lived its life. I want to buy her a new car but something with a higher driving position. We’ve short listed the Hyundai Venue 1.0 DCT and the EcoSport automatic. There is also a 3rd option which is a used 2015 facelifted Skoda Yeti in immaculate condition with AWD available for a slightly lesser price than the Venue and EcoSport but with a manual transmission. Which one of these would be the best option considering I’ll have the car around for at least 5 years. Thanks in advance.
  2. Ford Ecosport the best in its Class

    Compact SUV sales have exploded in the car industry over the last few years and are continuing to grow. Customers who want the feel of big chunky SUV but cannot afford the price tag can live their dreams with the compact SUV Segment. And it is no surprise to see companies like Ford are bringing small cross-overs in the market. Ford needs to compete at this small scale to remain competitive. The SUV's footprint is very similar to B segment cars like Fiesta. The new Ford Ecosport stands truly on its name. It is sporty, a compact crossover with a lot of storage spaces and a snazzy side-hinged rear hatch which is perfect for a small mid-size family budget. The 2017- Ecosport carries a new set of technology that makes driving more safer and convenient than ever. It has a BLIS ( Blind Spot Information System) with traffic alerts and use sensors to alert you for your blind spots. Ford Ecosport 2017 Exterior:- From the moment you look at it, you can immediately tell the subcompact SUV is a “Ford”. The front fascia in fact shouts “Ford”. It features a horizontal slat with Ford's signature grille. Something fairly unique to this front end is the way the A-pillars are curved at the bottom to give it a more sleek and muscular look. Moving towards the sides we see the mild Body-lines starting from the front quarter panel and merging with the tail-lamps. It also features an electrically operated sun-roof. Ford Ecosport 2017 Interior:- When you see a compact cross-over, it’s easy to imagine that it would be difficult to find a comfortable space, but Ford has done a commendable job of finding passenger space. The rear seats are particularly impressive for the class. Ford has used a basic instrument cluster with a large speedometer and tachometer. The model also gets an 8- inch display with Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system, which is mounted on top of the dash. The center console has a simplistic design with the BVAC controls front and center. Ford Ecosport 2017 Competition:- Ford Ecosport 2017 will compete in the Compact SUV segment against the Honda WR-V, Hyundai Creta and the Renault Duster. Tata Nexon Renault Captur Honda WRV Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Thank-You very much if you like this please comment and share your views.
  3. Mahindra and Ford have announced their partnership a few months ago. According to that partnership, the two firms will co-develop a mid-size C-segment SUV for which the platform and powertrain will be provided by Mahindra. Here are some renders of what the SUV could look like once complete. What do you guys think of the rendering? SOURCE
  4. As my swift is 10 years old now and is showing signs of aging which leaves me to sell it and buy a new car. I already have skoda octavia(2013) hyundai i20 elite(2015) so now loking to buy an suv. my max bugdet is 15-17 lakhs which leaves me with options like Creta, Duster & XUV500. all of them are capable ones but its really confusing to choose one among them. Hyundai Creta- looks amazing from the front but i personally dont like its back, features packed, gem 1.6 engine, great A.S.S Renault Duster- I just love its looks that macho feel but interiors are not as good as creta or the xuv500 but i think i can adjust for that great looks Mahindra XUV500- another great looker, bigger than both of them, feature packed but at a cost Now which one to select is the toughtest part, I love all of them though. This car wont be like a daily commuter. please now advice me which one would be the best. Any other suggestions are welcomed
  5. We were the first to tell you about Mahindra developing a range of new SUVs, including sub-compact models, and now here are the first ever pictures of one such model undergoing testing. This new baby SUV (codenamed S101) will be the second offering from Mahindra in the sub-four-metre SUV segment and will sit below the Quanto. Mahindra plans to aim the S101 at the likes of sportier mini-SUVs like the Ford EcoSport. As you can see from the photo, this heavily camouflaged test mule is at a very early stage of development, and features dummy head- and tail-lamps. The car’s profile reveals a sporty, crossover-like stance with high ground clearance and a slightly raked rear windscreen. Mahindra is reportedly planning to share interior components with its other models to keep costs down. What’s more, seeing as how it managed to squeeze seven seats into a sub-four-metre footprint with the Quanto, the company could pitch this new SUV as a six- or even an eight-seater. The carmaker is also reportedly considering developing an upmarket version of the S101 that will be codenamed S102. I personally think this could be a segment changer if positioned below or on par with the EcoSport. High time for Tata and Maruti to jump into this segment.
