Renault Kwid 1.0-litre Photo Gallery

Renault Kwid 1.0-litre Photo Gallery

Renault India has just launched the Kwid 1-litre at a rather tempting ex-showroom Delhi price range of Rs 3.83 and Rs 3.96 lakh. In essence, this new version is a gutsier, more fun to drive iteration of the standard 800cc Kwid.

Here’s a closer look at this freshly launched Alto K10 rival.

The Kwid 1-litre is powered by a 68bhp, 999cc, three-cylinder engine which has been tuned to deliver more low-end and mid-range punch compared to the standard 800cc model.

While the engine is all new, Renault is using the same 5-speed gearbox that’s also found in the 800cc Kwid. The car is 40kg heavier than the 800cc model because of the bigger engine.

Some might find it disappointing that Renault has made only a couple of design upgrades for the 1-litre Kwid. There are silver housings for the wing mirrors, chequered decals on the sides and that’s about it.

The Kwid’s power-to-weight ratio stands at 97bhp per tonne, making it the highest in its class. What adds to the overall lightness is the super light steering and gearshift.

Inside, there is no visual change which means you get the same single tone minimalistic dashboard that’s dominated by a large touchscreen infotainment system.

The all-digital instrument console is well detailed and features a speedometer, fuel gauge, distance to empty, average fuel consumption and some more.

The 300-litre boot is the biggest in its class and by a sizeable margin. What’s more, the Kwid is the longest and the widest among its rivals, at 3,679mm and 1,579mm respectively.

The Kwid 1-litre is now on sale and competes with cars like the Maruti Suzuki Alto K10, Wagon R and the Hyundai Eon 1.0 in the 1-litre hatchback segment.

Ford likely to launch Model E electric car in 2019

Ford likely to launch Model E electric car in 2019

Ford Motors, a popular name in the global automotive market has been working on electric vehicle development for quite a while now. Reports indicate that the upcoming model will be named as Model E. The upcoming model will compete against the likes of Tesla Model 3 and the Chevrolet Bolt. Expected to begin production in 2019, the affordable all-electric car will have a 200-mile range.

Ford Motors has been making considerable investments and investing time for research which will help them deliver more safer, convenient and reliable cars in the future. Along with the electric car, the American automaker is also working on introducing fully autonomous vehicles for commercial operations. Expected to be introduced in 2021, these vehicles will be used in ride hailing and ridesharing services. To make this a reality, the company is also doubling up its sales team in Silicon Valley and more than doubling the Palo Alto campus. To help with autonomous vehicle development, the company is also investing and collaborating with four startups.

The Model E naming convention was Tesla Motors Elon Musk’s first choice for their new vehicle, however, Ford having owned the trademark, the former had to opt for the Model 3. At a later date, Tesla Motors plans to launch the Model Y, which will help the company complete the ‘S3XY’ lineup which they have been longing for some time now. Reports also indicate that the Ford’s Model E will be available as a crossover as well as a car, and be offered as a hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure electric vehicle.

More details about the Model E will be known in the coming days. Chevrolet’s Bolt will be launched later this year, while the Tesla’s Model 3 will be launched in 2017. Though Ford may get its new Model E in 2019, the vehicle will have to get loads of interesting features to make it a strong competitor in the all-electric vehicle segment.

Mercedes-Benz Thailand launches the SLC, SL and S-Class cabriolet

Mercedes-Benz Thailand launches the SLC, SL and S-Class cabriolet

Mercedes-Benz has just launched three convertible models into its fleet of vehicles for the Thai market. The vehicles are the SLC and SL in two-seat form, and the upmarket S-Class Cabriolet.

The SLC is basically the new name for the facelifted folding hard top SLK roadster that has just gone under MB’s new terminology process. Other than the exterior tweaks made to the design, there are two new engine options to choose from and both come with the nine-speed automatic gearbox. While the SLC300 has a 2.0-litre petrol engine that makes 245bhp, it is priced at 3.99 million baht (Rs 77.32 lakh). The SLC43 AMG version costs 4.99 million baht (Rs 96.70 lakh), and is equipped with a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol motor capable of 367bhp.

MB’s two seater with a folding hard top, the SL, continues with the earlier name, and is now available to Thai buyers as the SL400. This iteration makes use of the same 367bhp 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol motor like in the SLC43 and has a price tag of 9.49 million baht (Rs 1.83 crore).

With the S-Class Cabriolet, MB has strayed away from the above two models by being a four seater with a classic soft-top. As of now, only the S500 will be sold with a 455bhp 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine at 16.29 million baht (Rs 3.15 crore).

First Drive: Audi A4

The past few years have seen Audi slowly revamp most of its model range. Product planners systematically made their way through the line-up, launching the new Q7, revamped the Q3, A6 and A8 and they also added an entry-level bait in the form of the A3 sedan. Until now, they have essentially left the A4 to its own devices which has existed in our market for eight long years. A mild makeover four years back improved its looks but failed to address its primary shortcoming, of not being as good to drive as its rivals. But it turns out that the brand-new A4 represents Audi’s sterling effort to make up for lost ground and it promises to set new standards for its rivals to follow.

Based on the MLB evo platform which also underpins the recently launched Q7, the new A4 is an extreme exercise of weight saving and maximum efficiency. The new A4 adopts more lightweight materials than perhaps any other car in its segment as steering and transmission components and the rear-seat structure are made of magnesium. Audi has used lot of aluminium too, the bonnet, doors and the boot lid is made out of aluminium, the multilink front and rear suspension incorporate a large amount of the metal too. This has helped Audi shave a massive 95kg off despite being 25mm longer and 16mm wider. The smaller 1.4-litre petrol motor too is light with it weighing less than 100kg. The raised for India suspension on the A4 doesn’t get adaptive dampers. As a result the three driving modes you choose through the Drive Select buttons, alters just the steering, engine and gearbox.

Like with all their cars, Audi has taken an evolutionary route with the new A4’s styling. But there are enough elements to help the new car stand out from the old one. The A4 now gets a TT-inspired low and aggressive, front end and it now sports a more contemporary and angular appearance than before. The LED headlamps are beautifully detailed and the daytime running lamps look really nice. The strong shoulder line which stretches all the way from the headlamps to the tail lamps gives it a purposeful stance. At the rear the tail lamps are stylish and the new A4 looks well-proportioned from any angle.

How is it on the inside?

While the exterior is fresh but evolutionary, the interior is a revelation. Next to the elegant cabin of the Mercedes C-Class and the conservative one in the BMW 3-series, the new A4’s dash looks futuristic. Horizontal lines dominate, right down to the thin air vents that span the entire width of the dash panel. The wood finish underneath the vents adds a traditional touch to an otherwise snazzy cabin. The air-con controls and knobs are finished in matt chrome and the knurled finish to the touch points feel top-drawer. The dash design is based on Audi’s superb Virtual Cockpit theme also seen on the Audi Q7. While you get a conventional high-res MMI screen on top of the dash the one that sits in place of the conventional instruments look really high-tech and futuristic.  The 12.3-inch TFT display can be switched between two different user interfaces. In “Infotainment” mode, a central window dominates the view, providing a large stage for the navigation map or for lists in the phone, radio and audio areas.

The longer wheelbase and width also means, the new A4 is has more room on offer on the inside. The big front seats offer tremendous shoulder and lateral support with just the right amount of suppleness. But its at the rear where the new A4 has improved the most. Thanks to the high roof, getting in the backseat is easy and once in you will really appreciate the amount of kneeroom and width on offer. As you sit at a good height, visibility from the back is great and thanks to the light beige leather seats, the rear seat ambiance is airy and pleasing. In addition, thigh support is fantastic, the backrest is supportive and, unlike the earlier car, there’s plenty of room for your feet as well. The boot at 480litres is big enough and unlike in the BMW  and the Merc, the space saver is neatly tucked away and doesn’t eat up into the luggage area.

The A4 we had on our drive was very well equipped. It came with Audi’s brilliant virtual cockpit, MMI system with a touchpad, three zone climate control, mobile mirroring, wireless charging, DVD changer, two USB ports, powered front seats, electronic parking brake, reversing camera with front and rear parking sensors, ABS, ESP and 8 airbags. Features we missed on the car were things like rear sun blind and auto park assist.

How does it drive?

Initially the A4 will be available with just the 1.4-litre petrol motor which seems like a very surprising decision, considering rivals offer much larger petrol units. According to Audi, weight saving measures have allowed them to give the new A4 a downsized engine without compromising on everyday performance.

Displacing 1395cc, this turbocharged motor is from VW’s EA211 engine family and it develops 148bhp and 250Nm of torque. The high-tech motor is coupled to an equally modern DQ200 7-speed dual clutch automatic.

As soon as you step on the accelerator pedal the motor responds quite well and the A4 feels peppy at low speeds. Peak torque comes in at a low 1500rpm and past that the mid-range is pretty strong and the engine will pull happily to its 6200rpm redline as well. The new A4 gets three driving modes – ‘Comfort’, ‘Dynamic’ and ‘Individual’. In ‘Comfort’, it is programmed to upshift at the earliest, maximising fuel efficiency, whereas in ‘Dynamic’, it will stay in the lowest gear possible. The problem with driving in ‘Comfort’ is that when you need that burst of power, you are usually in a gear too high and have to wait for the gearbox to kick down. ‘Dynamic’ is more responsive but the throttle response became too jerky to our liking.

Sure, the claimed 8.5 second 0-100kmph time is decent. But it can’t match its main rivals, the BMW 320i as far as outright performance is concerned. You also have to work the motor hard to get the best out of it. While the engine is very quiet and smooth at low speeds and when you’re cruising, it does get a bit thrummy after 5000rpm, and it isn’t as smooth as say, the bigger TSI motors we have experienced in the old A4.

The real sense of luxury in the A4 comes from its suspension setup. At town speeds the A4 simply excels thanks to its absorbent low speed ride, delivered despite the low profile 17-inch tyres. Well-judged spring rates helps this German saloon feel supple yet well controlled. Even over rutted surfaces the suspension has surprisingly good level of crash-free bump absorption, you don’t feel most imperfections. Yes, there is some firmness at low speeds but it never gets to the point of feeling uncomfortable. Even at higher speeds the A4 shows good composure and this makes it a soothing highway companion. The car also does an excellent job of cutting out road noise, but at higher speeds you do get a bit of wind noise around the A-pillars.

Where the old car used to feel sloppy and nervous at high speeds, the new A4 feels rock solid and straight-line stability is exceptional. The A4 changes direction quite eagerly but, it isn’t particularly engaging to drive. The steering is smooth and accurate but is merely a tool for pointing the front wheels, not gaining any kind of feel for the tyre or road interface. It feels a bit vague at higher speeds too.

Should I buy one?

The new Audi A4 builds on the previous car’s strengths and addresses some of its main weaknesses to make it a formidable package. Bigger and better in every way, it has an upmarket feel and the spacious and well equipped cabin just adds to its appeal. Its light controls make it easy to drive, however, enthusiasts will still find the A4 a bit lacklustre to drive. The small 1.4-litre petrol motor isn’t particularly thrilling and the handling isn’t as sharp or responsive as we would have liked either. But if you are chauffer driven and only occasionally take the wheel the A4 just ticks every box perfectly. It’s an ideal choice for normal day-to-day motoring with all the bells and whistles to pamper its owners. Now the only question remains the price. If priced right, the new generation A4 has all the makings of a winner.

Where does it fit in?

The Audi A4 is directly targeted at the BMW 3-Series, Jaguar’s new XE and the Mercedes C-Class. We expect Audi to undercut all of its main rivals to gain initial sales momentum.

2018 Hyundai Sonata spied again

2018 Hyundai Sonata spied again

Hyundai is actively testing the 2018 Sonata, as seen in these new spy shots of the car being tested in Michigan. While the current model has been around for a couple of years, Hyundai is expected to roll out the 2018 Sonata in the US sometime next year.

One of the highlights of the 2018 model will be the addition of an 8-speed automatic gearbox to mainstream variants. The 8-speed unit is likely to give substantial improvements to performance and efficiency.

The previous upgrade for the Sonata received an underwhelming response and as a result, the car eventually lagged behind its rivals in the mid-size sedan segment. With this 2018 model, however, Hyundai is looking to give the Sonata a thorough refresh next year in order to spark new interest among buyers. The car isn’t expected to come to the Indian market anytime soon.

Can The Hyundai Elantra Resurrect The Midsize Sedan Segment In India?

New-Gen Hyundai Elantra

Hyundai is comfortably the second largest manufacturer of cars in India. But though it has always had brisk sales, the Korean manufacturer never really had cars that were truly desirable. Of course, as we all know, all of that changed with the mega salvo from Hyundai that started with the Grand i10, thenew i20 and of course, the Creta. And in each of these segments, they have grown to be benchmarks (or near benchmarks) offering phenomenal value for money with a healthy dose of performance along with a palatable design.

The i20 resurrected the slow moving premium hatchback segment that already had a bunch of competent cars. The Creta repeated the process by showcasing how the Indian audience did not mind paying a premium for a compact SUV that was high on quality and gadgetry but was not typically butch and in-your-face in terms of design. So, can it do the same with the slow-moving midsize sedan segment? India did get the third generation as well as the fifth generation Elantra but neither could really do much in terms of sales despite being extremely capable cars in their own right.

In fact, the last gen (or fifth gen) Elantra was head and shoulders above the competition when it came to gadgetry and the fact that it had cooled seats was enough to get us to recommend one to buyers. But, with its Fluidic 1.0 design out of sync with the likes of the Elite i20 and the Grand i10 (and later the Creta), it was always left out of the running when it came to actual buying decisions. The new one looks much smarter with the Fluidic 2.0 design, has a whole bunch of gadgets that really set the benchmark in the segment and is well built. So what really seems to be the problem with the segment as a whole?

Well, the answer is quite obvious. For the average Indian who is upgrading from the likes of a premium hatchback or a family sedan (like the Honda City), bigger is better! And this is why an overwhelming majority will choose to buy an SUV instead of the conventional sedan (which was the norm about 10 or so years ago). But, we do think that the Hyundai Elantra could change this and swing the popularity pendulum back into the sedan’s favour. For starters, the uncertainty of whether or not large diesel engines (or diesel engines in general) will be allowed in major metros has shown a huge shift towards petrol engines (and more importantly, petrol automatics).

Conventionally, SUVs have never been seen as petrol powered vehicles and thus there are a number of people who will want to shift to a more conventional solution like the petrol sedan. The Elantra, then, is the right car for the right time. With prices similar (broadly) to the likes of the top of the line Creta, we predict a shift towards people re-considering these sedans once again. Yes, it will have stiff competition from the likes of the evergreen Toyota Corolla, Volkswagen Jetta and Skoda Octavia but we think its biggest rival will be the soon to be launched Honda Civic. And since it will soon be exactly three years since the latest Honda City was launched, the Hyundai Elantra is in the best position to get a jumpstart over the Civic and capitalise on buyers who are now looking for an upgrade.

Audi A4 1.4 TFSI Review

New Audi A4 in Built on VW's MLB platform

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The new generation Audi A4 gets the 1.4-litre TFSI petrol motor in India
  • The new A4 is ligther by a 120 kg as compared to its predecessor
  • Prices will start just under the Rs. 40 lakh mark for the new A4
Audi New A4

Audi has launched a number of vehicles in India, including the R8 V10 Plus and even the all-new Q7; but what everyone was left wondering was what it would bring to the luxury sedan segment. Well, the answer is here: it’s the new generation of the A4. This is a rival to the Mercedes C-Class, BMW 3-seriesand the Jaguar XE and it’s all set to hit the Indian roads. Audi will launch the car in the first week of September, but we got a chance to get behind the wheel of the new generation A4 and here’s what it’s like.

You look at it and it’s got a nice sculpted body and the design can only be described as evolutionary. It looks fresh and the changed headlamps with the nice DRLs suit the new look of the car. The front grille still bears a resemblance to the family, but a lot of work has gone into making this one different.  The new-gen Audi A4 is lighter by 120 kg, as compared to its predecessor, given that a lot of aluminium has been used and that’s not only in the structure but also in its suspension setup.

New Audi A4 in Built on VW's MLB platform

New Audi A4 in Built on VW’s MLB platform

Built on VW’s MLB platform, it gets a sculpted body, but unlike the Q7, which looks more athletic, the A4 doesn’t stray far away from its predecessor. It has a conservative design approach; however, there are some changes, which make it stand out.

There’s Audi’s signature hexagonal grille, but it’s a bit larger on this one and the head lamps are slimmer. Additionally, the top-end model will also come with Matrix LED headlamps, which will be an interesting feature addition to the Indian line-up. The rear sees sharper tail lamps and they taper well into the boot lid. You’ll also notice sharp creases on the body panels and these are not just to improve aesthetics, but essentially to make the car more aerodynamic. Audi has managed to achieve a drag coefficient of 0.23 in the A4 and this is a record in its class.

What it’s also managed to do is spec it wonderfully and this is where all the technology inside the cabin comes to life. The design on the dash is new and refreshing. It follows the same single slab outline as the new Q7, which is why the air vents dominate the dash. Contrapuntally, we miss a little of drama on the dash, which we see in both the C-Class and the Jaguar XE. Yet, there’s no way you can deduct any points for craftsmanship. The ace in the pack for Audi, however, will be the Virtual Cockpit, which replaces the conventional instrument cluster.

New Audi A4 Cabin

The HD screen gives you a clear view of navigation, infotainment and car information and there’s place even for the speedo and tachometer. However, Audi has given no indication, whether it’ll come as standard equipment. Mind you, it’s a different experience altogether, as the 7-inch screen on the dash hooks up your phone thanks to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Of course, there’s Audi’s own MMI interface, which is extremely user-friendly.

New Audi A4 Cabin Features

New Audi A4 Cabin Features

Adding more convenience is the longer wheelbase, which now stands at 2820mm – longer by 12mm, so there’s more legroom for the passengers seated at the rear and the scooped out backs of the front seats translate into some more room too. However, for a 6-footer, like myself, there wasn’t much headroom, thanks to the sloping roof; but overall it’s a one up, above its predecessor. It also comes with a 3-zone climate control system, given that the people at the rear are very important; and that is because the A4 will be a chauffeur driven affair. Well, but is it better on space than the Skoda Superb or the Toyota Camry? No, it isn’t. Then again in that segment, no one beats both these premium sedans on space.

Under the hood, however, we see a massive change and one that was unexpected for India. In fact, the folks, at Audi India, pushed hard to get this engine out first, which is why we’ll see the 1.4-litre petrol engine make its way here. The engine has been downsized and so we’ll no longer have the 1.8-litre version.

New Audi A4 Comes With the 1.4-litre Petrol Engine

New Audi A4 Comes With the 1.4-litre Petrol Engine

Audi India managed to fast track the launch of the new A4 with the 1.4-litre petrol, which now has 150hp on offer. Yet, there’ll be those who’ll say that is that enough power? Well. Yes, it is! There’s no hiding the fact that 18 horses have left the stable and it’s got less torque as well (70Nm less), but there’s no denying that the car does what it does best. It’s a sophisticated unit, where the exhaust manifold has been integrated into the cylinder head with very high-pressure fuel injection and separate cooling circuits for the crankcase and cylinder head, so it shouts performance as well as efficiency. The folks at Audi claim that the new A4 can deliver more than 17 km/l and that’s close to most hatchbacks and sub-compact diesel sedans in our country. Plant your foot on the accelerator and you’ll see the 7- speed Dual clutch transmission work overtime, to adjust to your needs. There’s no delay in pulling power – the 250Nm is available from 1500rpm and it cruises along. Put it into the sports mode and the dynamics change, but it doesn’t go mental. It’s like Jeeves in more ways than one, suave, sophisticated and delivers the punch at the right time.   This proves that it does well when you put it into a corner too, but it doesn’t exude the same fun as either a 3 series or even a Jaguar XE. For the most part of the journey, you don’t feel the need to intervene with the gearbox, by using the paddle shifters; however, when you do, the shifts are precise and add to the delight of the drive. Gear shifts are seamless and the low-end torque makes things even better, by handing you power on a platter.

New Audi A4 Gets 8 Airbags

New Audi A4 Gets 8 Airbags

Cabin noise is curtailed thanks to better insulation. This is achieved as a result of extremely refined transmission, as also the sound-deadening acoustic glass used on the front windows. The A4 is a new look, a new feel and a breath of fresh air coming from Audi. It might not be great on looks, but it has been built superbly inside out. There are 8 airbags on offer; but again, we don’t know if that’s part of standard equipment.

Considering that the car will be assembled locally, at the company’s Aurangabad plant (which it shares with Skoda) and the downsized engine, people might think that it’ll be cheaper; however, considering the amount of equipment that Audi has packed in, it does not look like it. While the folks at Audi refused to give out a figure, we expect it to be pricier than its predecessor. That said, it will not cross the 40 lakh mark. There’s no doubt Audi has upped its game and with the company looking to go big in terms of dealership network and experience,  it will yet again cash in on being the first out there with an up-to-date car.
