  1. Hi supercharger ( mercedes Kompressor )is similar to turbo charger mercedes 350 or 220 CDi) say like fan consisting of blades (both of them pump more fresh air by compressing(forcing) into cylinders of engine)

    supercharger is driven by ENGINE crankshaft thru belt , Where as turbocharger is driven by Exhaust gasses forced out of engine cylinder,

    Supercharger as it is driven by engine its QUICK TO REACT . Unlike the Exhaust driven turbocharger   there will be a turbo lag,which needs higher engine RPM to force the blades to rotate and give more power ,

    Which one is best depends on type of CAR ,

    Quicker and expensive shld be Super charger, Economical shld be Turbocharger. But off late we had noticed some latest generation /Twin scroll turbo charges & Variable geometry Turbochargers competing with super chargers .

    Volks wagen had combined both of Supercharge r+ Tubocharger called TFSI to over come this issue ,

    some mfrs are giving two turbo chargers (smaller +big ) exhaust driven turbochargers so that smaller turbo reacts quicker in intial take off and the bigger turbo takes on after.


  2. HI reg SUV of 60 laks.

    Serious off roading & dependable easy to maintain=ToytaPrado

    Merc ML350CDi = bieng established your suv need not wait long period in workshop for want of spares.good offroad .

    Volkswagen NEW TOUAREG= getting launched soon Good for offroad and comfortable ,Tuff shld come below ur 60 lak Expensive to maintain, accidented part takes longer time

    Porsche cayennediese= similar to above (VW) but may cross ur budget expensive to maintain, accidented part takes longer time

    BMX5= good to drive sporty but not comfortable NO SPARE TYRE is big problem Specially for SUV , NOT a good FOR OFFROAD ,Expensive to maintain, accidented part takes longer time.

    Volvo= Not good for offroad,comfortable seats &ride Expensive to maintain, accidented part takes longer time ,less number of cars or SUV not much of presence in india,

    Audi Q7= not serious off roader BIG, Expensive to maintain, accidented part takes longer time

    Hope this gives a fair idea .Anand

  3. Hi sham ,ref to ur question i had noticed a switch W /S ( w= winter S=summer )in mercedes S class were in car takes off in 2nd gear in winter snow , There is a possibility as long as your torque band helps ,ex-The torque band in tata vista diesel (fiat engine) is lowered by 250 RPM when compared to same fiat engine of swift , This helps vista in pulling in low RPM as well & in gear speeds
