  1. Ford Escort, Fords one of the best vehicle long back, was one of the iconic car in Indian car market.

    Quite muscular in design with a feeling of luxury, simply made it a combination of male thing and one of the quick choice for car lovers.

    hope to see this new beast on roads soon !!!

  2. Looking to the pics , the car can make a nice debut in the small car segment. Interesting competing with it main rival Maruti Alto 800.

    Since Renault has occupied good market share with the grand success of duster, entering small car aka entry car level market can strengthen its roots in indian car market.

    But for really making a worth debut in the market, renault has to develop strong ASS network so as to compete with market giant MS and hyundai !!!

  3. looking forward to your needs and budget i would suggest a compact suv will be a good option .

    Looking to market scenario you have two major players renault duster and ford eco sports.

    Compact SUV can be useful for both on road daily drives and off roads outings plans.

    At the same time spending 9 lakhs for a hatchback wont be a good option, better move with a compact SUV !!

  4. @desiibond

    since your running is not that much then i would suggest you to go for petrol varient ,as it will be economic on your pocket too..

    Now abt the music system, the loaded music systems are never that effective. personally suggesting go for JBL rear in built woofer speakers and if you want more bass feel then go for subwoofer too . The appx. costing for speakers will be around 5k max. and if you go for sub woofer add another 10k to it !

  5. Few days back we got a post from one of the owner of Force One stating it to be a pathetic vehicle in SUV segment.

    pls. refer the forum topics.

    I would personally suggest to go for storme as the new safari strome is indeed a real SUV. dont compare it with older models of safari.

    Scorpio being dated now still own a good share in this segment.

    If you want to go for SUV then you need to compromise on 3rd row seating option. XUV500 is also well tested and nice option and owner are really satisfied with the performance of the vehicle.

    If you want comfort for all 3 rows with baisc power and ease handling go for ertiga, innova, aria !!!

    Toyota Etios,the Q class segment as advertised by Toyota is worth for the money. The car is spacious and interiors being basic but the main car fundamentals like engine, transmission and power that the car delivers is really appreciable.

    Personally comparing toyota with Amaze is not a good options. I would suggest you should go for 1.5 L petrol engine compared to 1.2L engine of amaze. else you can go for Ford Classic.

    Now focussing on your query for petrol/diesel varient, if your travel involves more than 1000km /month then the diesel will soot your pocket else go for petrol varient and as such now there's very small variation in the price difference.

    Now in reference to your music system , i would suggest if you are buying top end varient then the car come loaded with the music system. incase you are music freak like me then you can go for JBL in build woofer rear speakers and if you want more bass then opt them with JBL sub woofer. They will surely drive you crazy !!! B)

  6. Certainly with such a long waiting period this is surely gonna help duster to keep the ongoing pace of its sales in the market.

    Also with such a long waiting period the car will be able to make a remarkable impact on the market but to compete with the sales of its main rival , is something difficult to comment upon !!

  7. Ambassador since long time has been an iconic figure. It may be the black one that are driven by top defense officials or the white one driven by the top govt. officials and bureaucrats, it makes a different style statement while running on the roads !!

    Comparing Amby with other luxurious car is not a good option. Amby is total differenct segment car, the one that comes with a pride and prestige that one owns in the society. Chaueffeur driven Amby is something that cant be compared with other luxurious varients !!!

    Since the new of launch of Amby hatchback is difficult to digest. If it would have been on totally new platform then atleast we can expect something new coming in the market but since the car is going to be developed on the same platform, cant imagine what impact it is going to create on the hatchback segment.

    Hindustan Motors should go for R&D of developing the existing model with somewhat uplift interiors. Since the other car makers have done the same with their iconic models and have made a good impact in the market.

    On an whole the image that Amby possess in the market cant be experimented with launching of such hatchbacks !!!! :huh:

  8. Civic, all time luxury with a nice price tag ! Indeed the new looks are quite similiar to the other avtars of Honda family.

    the rear is some what similar to Honda accord with tail lights streched till the number plate.

    Anyways civic stands at good place in the Indian auto market, with this make over hope it can uplift more !!!

  9. Seeing the spy pics, the only thing that can describe this new member of Hero Motocop family is disproportinate styling.

    Hero did the same thing with ZMR with such a muscular and bulky body hero is giving very skinny tyres that indirectly affected the entire looks of the bike. The same is seen in this bike also. <_<

    Bike makers in India need to go for proper proportionate assembly so as to attract the youth.

    This is like you buy a bike assembly and get the tyres changed to give it sporty feeling ! Instead if company itself start manufacturing proportionate structured bikes much rise in the sales can be expected !

  10. Ford Eco Sport standing upto the expected result. Current figures saying that the booking has crossed 30000 units.

    This is indeed a very good start to Ford and this might help ford in grabing good percentage of market in the compact SUV segment.

    The figures can easily reflect that the news of recall of diesel varient has been overshadowed and people are keen to grab one !!!

    Ford indeed is having a good time to mark its presence again !!! B)

  11. Hatch backs !!!

    The best way to start is to start with the topic centre itself ! These days it can be seen a lot new cars in all the segment being rolled out. Whether it is sedan segment, to bit lower costing luxury brands or new segment of compact SUV or the all time ruler Hatch backs !! in every upcoming months we can see something unique being rolled out by the automakers.

    Focusing on the hatchback, it may be maruti suzuki or nissan or hyundai something new is rolled out in the market in short spans. The latest of all these can be the Datsun brand of Nissan, then has made a comeback after almost 32 years !! with the launch of it hatchback Datsun Go !! The car is priced below 4 lakhs. Since the car is priced with beginners price tag it might give a neck on neck competition to maruti's alto, alto k10, wagon r hyundai i10 !!!

    Since the technical specification are still not revealed , much can be talked only after the reveal of detailed tech specs. Talking apart the car brand is not new in the market it is just a recall of the old respected brand of Nissan, hence we can expect some healthy competition from DatSun Go in the market of small car segment !!

  12. Certainly the things might work affirmatively for Ford. Becoming the news topper and launching the much awaited car with such an aggressive price and then in the starting months only, recalling the diesel varient , in commons man's thought create a negative impact!!!! :wacko: Things might not effect the car freak people but for some serious buyers who are eying for an upgrade from a small hatchback to a budget SUV, such news can will create a second though in their mind.

    Since ES is using the same engine of Ford Iconic Feista then also recalling the car for relocation of control module to a better position in the front bumper, gives a feeling whether this is the only case or the car is been recalled for some other issues !!

    Apart if this is the only case for the recall then during the concept design why it was not taken care off !! :huh:

  13. The most talked car Ford Ecosports came with a eye catchy price tag of 5.59 lakhs !!!!

    Ford one of the key player in the auto world coming with its first compact SUV with such a price tag,can make it the ruler in this car segment.

    Talks about the launch has now also included that Ford has followed the price strategy same as the Renault followed during the launch of Duster!! the current ruler in the segment!!Duster was also introduced with a mid car segment price tag of 7.9 lakhs, and that made it a key player in the auto market and helped renault to re-establish its image as as independent player in the market !!

    So can we expect the same from the Ford ! :huh: as such ford is established in India since long time and has played well in the market with some of its iconic cars like Ford Icon, Ford Feista , Ford Figo and now with Ford Ecosport, can we expect the same trend or it can simply become the ruler of the compact suv segment.

    Loking to the experts talks the car will be a tough rival to the current ruler, but the final outcome can only be judged by comparing the sales figure of both !!! B)

  14. Finally the most talked off and most awaited compact SUV has been launched at an aggressive price tag of 5.59 lakhs !!!!

    Since FORD ECOSPORT had been compared and lined up along with RENAULT DUSTER and many talks and debates had been made and still going on among the auto freak experts , but what actual impact the car is gonna make on the market is yet to arrive .Since price tag is so attractive that the mid car size buyers can think off going for it.

    Renault launched its compact SUV and that got a grand opening and a huge success and it was also launched with an aggressive price of 7.99 lakhs :huh: , a price that can attract buyers easily, compared to the trend followed price of past rulers!!!!! It made a remarkable position in the market and still ruling the market !! But can we expect the same trend will be followed now with the launch of FORD ECOSPORT, as it has also launched at some what much lower price as compared to duster.

    Looking to the technical specification of FORD, it has an overall length of 3999 mm and a wheel base of 2520 mm, slightly less than that of DUSTER. As per talks in the auto world , ford has launched this new boy with a 1.0 ltr. petrol engine of 999 cc delivering 125 ps @6300 rpm !!! Now talking of a SUV with a 999cc engine will be really remarkable and that can be judged only after after sales feedback from the owners. B) Apart from this the car will be coming with both diesel and petrol variant with 1.5 ltr. petrol engine delivering 112ps@6000rpm, somewhat near to its competitor.

    Talking of mileage the car will be running with an avg mileage of 17-19 kmpl depending on the road conditions. But a little more can be expected from the diesel variant as it is loaded with the same TDCi engine of FORD Fiesta !! that gave a good response in terms of mileage !!

    ON a whole what level of competition this new muscular boy of FORD will be giving to the market ruler can be judge only after we can get the sales figures !!!

  15. With the increasing demands and high line increase in the craze for the cars among the people, we observe a new car arriving in the market in every 4-5 months. Usually it is observed that things get lined up if we get more options vailable in the market and it becomes quite confusive to choose from. But if we talk in reference to the scenario that we get in automobile world, people await curiously :huh: to get a new model lined up front of their gate. Earlier people use to buy car and use it for a long run , but these days talking in reference to auto lovers , they change quite frequently and are always curious for the new upcomings in the market. Whether they get upliftments in terms of cosmetics to total new avatars in terms of new technology new concept. B)

    In chase to the above talks these days we can see the concept of COMPACT SUV'S coming in the market, with Renault Duster taking the lead and flooding the market. Other Auto Giants like ford, maruti are also following the trend with ford lauching its compact suv FORD ECOSPORTS,that will be soon flooding the market and giving tough competition to the ruler. Maruti has also announced the arrival of XA alpha may be in the year end or the begining of new year.

    Renault duster came with a storming opening and got a really good response in such a short span. The car comes with a overall length of 4315mm quite compact if we talk of big giants, with a ground clearance of 205mm and a very good and a must broad wheel base of 2673mm. Talking of engine the car comes in both petrol and deisel varient with 1.6 lit. petrol engine and 1.5 litre diesel engine displacing 1598cc, which is good enough for the city and some weekend outing. Since we are talking for a comapct SUV we can expect something really big in terms of power and that the main point where the car lags when lined with the ruling SUV's in the market.

    With a usual 5 gears manual transmission, driving it on the city roads is quite comfortable but becomes a bit loady while commuting on highways. Interiors are basic and pretty good on the high end varients, but still one can expect it basic features of all 4- power windows, central locking in the base varients.

    On a whole Duster is pretty good option for the car savy people who want a feel of SUV with a mid car size budget. Still for those whole like to wait and get the best , a lot more is lined up to arrive in the market !!!! ;)

  16. i appreciate your idea.

    maruti swift is the incarnation taken from its predessor suzuki cultus. The concept design started in the year 2000 and this was maruti's first of kind hatchback with sporty looks.(talking specifically for maruti).

    The older swift was much comfortable and much smooth and one can push it upto max 170km/hr but the same with the new one is not that better. The handling od older swift was much more comfortable as compared to new avatar of swift.

    The i20 deisel comes with 6-speed manul transmission and the controlling is really very easy on high speed as compared to that of swift. No doubt swift is good but still it comes with 5-speed transmission and that is a bit loady feeling.

    The sales part of maruti as per recent news in declining as compared to that of hyundai.

    No matter the above comparison is made only between maruti swift and hyundai i20. better options are also available depending upon one's own taste and choice .

  17. i20 is really much better option as compared to maruti swift, volkswagon polo, micra , liva and figo.

    the car has better pick up as compared to its main rival maruti swift plus its GC is 165mm that makes it stick to the ground at sharp turns and much stable while driving at high speeds.

    the main thing that uplift i20 over all the above competitors is its interiors that are much upgraded as compared to that of swift, micra figo and liva.

    as compared to engine capacity polo and liva are good as i20 but aftersales maintainace of polo is much costlier as compared to that of i20.

    swift is easy on pocket with lower maintaince cost but that can be beared with upgraded i20 !!!

  18. With the launch of Maruti Swift back in year 2000, maruti gave a boosting start to a sporty iconic figure in its hatchback segement . Maruti Swift came with the price range sooting the middle car segment at the same time providing a sporty looks and 4-cylinder powered 1200cc engine, that took the image of maruti to next level. the engine gave 114 Nm @4000rpm wit h87 ps @ 6000 rpm power. The car was really stable at high speed with ground clearance of 170mm.

    Later on with ruling the market for such a long time maruti came up with a new avatar of swift. The new swift is more muscular as compared to old version. The new avatar gave more leg space with improved option of seat adjustment. The boot space got refined giving a bulky back appearance with capacity of 232 litres quite sufficient for some weekend outings for a mid size family. Interior got an uplift with some crome finished dashboard. Suspensions are pretty good in the city and quite good on freeways.

    This fat boy is competing neck on neck with its main rival hyundai i20 coming in the same segment with 1200cc engine delivering 84 ps @ 6000 rpm, power and 114 Nm@ 4000 rpm quite aligned with that of maruti swift.

    But the main part that uplift i20 is the interiors, much upgraded and refined as compared to swift and sooting the taste of midsize car buyers. The boot space is also enhanced about 295 litres as compared to 232 litres that of maruti. The car is aerodynamically stable at high speeds plus a bit more comfortable as compared to maruti swift. Both the cars are loaded with EPS ( electronic power steering) that works pretty well while commuting in the city.

    Both the cars come with diesel varient, the most preferred segment these days due to increasing petrol prices. Maruti is equiped with 1248cc engine ( fiat make the best in the class) delivering 75 ps@4000rpm power with 0 to 100 in 14 sec. the car recorded top speed of 160 km/hr. At the same time i20 comes loaded with 1396 cc CRDi engine delivering 90ps@4000rpm with better torque of 210Nm@1500-2750rpm compared to 170Nm of swift. The car comes with 6- speed manual transmission that makes it to move smoothly while driving on high speeds. B) Swift gives a bit odd feeling while driving on high speeds with 5 gears manual transmission seems like pushing at top gear to high speeds.

    Anyways driving at high speeds should always be last option. Both the cars are ruling the market. i20 giving a tough competition to the market leader and making its place in the midsize car segment. Truley said with more options comes more confusion
