Volkswagen Teases T-Roc SUV Ahead Of Frankfurt Debut

Volkswagen T-Roc

About four months back, first gave us a glimpse of the camouflaged T-Roc. A couple of weeks ago, the carmaker then explained the design process for the SUV. Now, the German automaker has released yet another teaser video to ramp up the excitement as we get closer to the official unveil of the compact SUV at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

The latest trailer briefly flashes the exterior and interior shots of the SUV. And here's what we could gather from the short video:

- The SUV will mostly flaunt sharp edges and straight lines instead of curves

- Colour-matched accents will run across the entire length of the dashboard and stretch over to the door panels bringing over the exterior hue inside the cabin

- The rear end will have a sharper rake angle compared to traditional SUVs, which will give it a sleek side profile and an aerodynamic advantage

- The LED tail lamps stretch from the sides onto the boot lid

- The SUV gets machined 10-spoke alloy wheels to go with the modern looks

- A double-barrel projector headlamp setup will grace the face, possibly with LED beams

Volkswagen T-Roc

The T-Roc may also get the Audi-esque 'virtual cockpit' with colour LCD instrument cluster. Engine options are likely to include a 1.4-litre TSI and a 2.0-litre TDI paired with a 6-speed manual and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. If the compact SUV makes it to India, it will mainly rival the. On one end, the Creta has an unparalleled mass-market appeal and an attractive starting price tag. On the other end, the Compass brings a luxury brand within reach of the masses. To make a mark in India, the T-Roc will have to carve a niche for itself just to stay afloat in our extremely competitive market.

Tata Tiago XTA Launched At Rs 4.79 Lakh

Tata Tiago

Tata's little Tiago is going from strength to strength. The hatch recently breached the one lakh mark in terms of bookings, and Tata claimed that the AMT version received an "overwhelming response". Looks like the manufacturer is keen on cashing in on the response, because it has quietly slid in the AMT for the XT trim of the.

Tata Tiago AMT

The automatic also costs Rs 42,000 over the equivalent manual variant. Save for the lack of a clutch and the gear lever, it is identical to its stick-shift counterpart. There's no change mechanically either, and the Tiago automatic is available with a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine that develops 85PS of power and 114Nm of torque. There's no word on claimed fuel efficiency, but we expect it to be quite close to the manual's 23.84kmpl. That said, the Tiago XZA we tested returned 16.04kmpl inside the city, and 22.04kmpl on the highway run. And yes, a detailed review will follow shortly - watch this space.

Back to the car - the XT variant misses out on a few flashy features such as alloy wheels, front fog lamps, ORVM-mounted turn indicators and steering-mounted controls. Sadly, it also misses out on some absolute necessities such as a rear wiper and defogger and anti-lock brakes with EBD. The fine print on the Tiago's brochure says dual airbags are optional only on the manual variant - which is puzzling. While we get some clarity from as to why, as things stand, the Rs 46,500 premium seems well justified for the top-end XZA.

5 New Features Of The Land Rover Discovery

Land Rover Discovery

The will soon be making a comeback in the Indian market. Replacing the Discovery 4, the all-new Discovery has some massive shoes to fill. The one thing which the Discovery 4 did effortlessly was going over everything. Mud, slush, hills or rocks, the Land Rover could conquer it all in a breeze while holding occupants in the lap of luxury. The new Discovery is supposed to be leaps ahead of the older one. Here is a list of ways it has improved over its predecessor, both in terms of capability and comfort.

1. Different Skeleton, Same Soul

Land Rover Discovery

The all-new Discovery has parted ways with the ladder frame and adopted a new monocoque structure. The new lightweight aluminium construction is 480kg lighter than before, which translates into more efficiency and performance. This will make the SUV more comfortable on the road, where, let's face it, it will be spending most of its lifetime. But, this does not take away from the fact that it could still climb hills and even some small cars. And just to ensure that the Discovery can indeed be taken anywhere and everywhere on the planet, it has been tested in climate chambers where the SUV has been frozen under -40anddeg;C and roasted till 50anddeg;C.

2. Accommodates All And Beyond

Land Rover Discovery

The Discovery is the only SUV in the Land Rover range which has a proper seating for seven. And unlike the last one, all three rows of the new Discovery can seat adults. And just so the occupants don't feel cluttered, there a panoramic sunroof which extends all the way to the third row. To make matters more comfortable, the Discovery has always had the distinct stepped roofline, which is there for a very specific reason. You see, the Discovery offers a 'stadium seating' configuration, which means that each row is positioned higher than the one in front. This ensures all passengers get a clear view of the road in front.

Land Rover Discovery

The LR Discovery measures 4,970mm long, 2,220mm wide (with ORVMs out) and 1,846mm tall. This makes the current-gen SUV 141mm longer but both narrower and lower than before. The wheelbase has also increased by 38mm and now stands at 2,923mm, making more room for the rear passengers.

3. A Kiss Of Luxury

Land Rover Discovery

The Discovery has always been as luxurious as it is capable off-road. This time too, the same is true. To add to the wow factor, the Discovery now gets air suspension -- the SUV lowers itself by up to 40mm when the ignition is switched off or the seatbelt is unhooked, indicating that a passenger is preparing to exit the vehicle. Neat, right?

Land Rover Discovery

Inside, as expected, there is leather. You now also get a 10-inch InControl Touch Pro infotainment system which adds a modern touch to the cabin. This system supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and the music output is distributed in the cabin via a 14-speaker Meridian digital surround system with additional subwoofer.

Additionally, all the three rows come with heated seats while the front two rows are heated and cooled as well. Moreover, the massage seat function is available for the driver and the front passenger as well. Speaking of seating, Discovery also gets the 'Intelligent Seat Fold' technology, which lets you change the configuration of the second and third row of the SUV remotely via a smartphone app, so when you get to the SUV, you get the desired loading/seating space.

4. King Of The Hill, And The Flats

Land Rover Discovery

It's a Land Rover, so it has to be good off the road. So, to ensure you don't end up scraping the belly of your SUV, the Discovery has a ground clearance of 283mm and can dive into water bodies up to 900mm deep. Compared to the last Discovery, this is an increase of 43mm in clearance and a massive 200mm in water wading. Also, if you are in the mood to go hiking, the Discovery's sharp approach angle of up to 34 degrees, breakover angle of 27.5 degrees and departure angle of 30 degrees will keep you from losing the bumpers.

Now, to help dummies like myself go off-road, the Discovery has Land Rover's multi-mode Terrain Response 2 system. This system comes with a range of settings. With a change in the ride mode, the SUV adjusts the throttle sensitivity and gear changes to suit the driving conditions.

The New Discovery can also pull, a lot. The towing capacity is now a massive 3,500kg, which is assisted by systems like a semi-autonomous 'Advanced Tow Assist', which provides active guidance lines for you to park the load easily.

5. Mechanicals And Mulha

Land Rover Discovery

The new Land Rover Discovery is available with a range of four- and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, all paired to a ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox. In India, we get the 3.0-litre, twin-turbocharged diesel with 258PS/600Nm output and a 3.0-litre, supercharged petrol unit developing 340PS/450Nm.

We will get to choose between 5 variants and a limited edition trim. The prices for the same are as follows.

Variant 3.0 l Si6 Petrol 3.0 l TD6 Diesel
S Rs 68.05 Lakh Rs 78.37 Lakh
SE Rs 71.15 Lakh Rs 85.30 Lakh
HSE Rs 74.23 Lakh Rs 89.54 Lakh
HSE Luxury Rs 78.91 Lakh Rs 95.47 Lakh
Fiest Edition Rs 84.43 Lakh Rs 1.03 Crore


Bookings for the Discovery are now open and the first.

5 Cars That Embody Freedom

Cars That Embody Freedom

One of mans' most cherished freedoms is the freedom to move freely, and our machines enable us to enjoy this freedom to a greater extent. The car is as popular as it is because it allows (those who can afford one) to go almost anywhere at any time that they want. The following is a list of five cars that we think allow us to enjoy the freedom of travel in the best way possible.

The freedom to enjoy speed: Volkswagen Polo GTI

Volkswagen GTI

What if you wanted a car that would fulfil your need for speed without being limited to a racetrack? Hot hatchbacks provide the perfect blend of crazy-grin-inducing performance, practicality (seat four/five, fit some luggage) and daily usability without putting a huge dent in your finances.

One of the best hot hatchbacks you can buy in the country today is the Volkswagen GTI. It looks like a Polo at first glance but there are many signs that this is not just another Polo, the most obvious of which is that it only has two side-doors.

Volkswagen Polo GTI

The real magic is under the hood; the GTI is powered by a 1.8-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine developing 192PS of peak power and 250Nm of peak torque which is a paired to a 7-speed quick shifting dual-clutch transmission. 0-100kmph is achieved in 6.7-seconds, with the hatchback going on to hit a claimed top speed of 235kmph.

If the stock performance does not quench the speed demon inside of you, you will be happy to know that cars from Volkswagen are some of the easiest ones to modify with parts available from tuners worldwide

The freedom to go where few cars can go: Mahindra Thar

Mahindra Thar in its elements

If you find that driving over demarcated roads is stifling your freedom, an SUV is a perfect answer. If it has to be a capable SUV to go where very few can follow you, the Mahindra Thar can be your perfect tool.

The numbers are not impressive. The Thar is (practically) a two seater SUV powered by a 2.5-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged motor which develops a modest 105PS of maximum power and 247Nm of torque and paired to a 5-speed manual transmission.

undefined

What makes the Thar impressive is its off-road ability; a shift-on-the-fly 4x4 system with a mechanically locking rear differential, a flexible chassis and jaw-dropping suspension articulation make this a capable off-roader even in stock form. Enthusiasts will find that minimal modification (off-road tyres, snorkel) can make this the off-road explorer of one's dreams.

The freedom to go anywhere with friends/family: Isuzu D-Max V-Cross

Isuzu D-Max V-Cross

The Mahindra Thar is a capable off-roader, but what if you wanted to share the joys of going almost anywhere with more than just one person? Lifestyle pickup trucks like the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross are your answer. In fact, for now, the V-Cross is the only answer.

The D-Max V-Cross is as long as its name sounds - 5.3-metres; that is longer than a Mercedes-Benz S-Class It is also 1.8-metres wide and 1.8-metres tall. Within this dimension is a 4-door, four/five seater SUV with an open cargo-deck (as stock) which can be used to haul 265kg of whatever you like.

Isuzu D-Max V-Cross

A bullet-proof 2.5-litre turbo-diesel motor sits under the tall hood, paired with a 5-speed manual transmission and a shift-on-the-fly 4x4 system with low-ratio gearing. The V-Cross is at home both on-road and off it, providing a sense of comfortable freedom that no other vehicle of its size gives. The good news is, if you want to make this more capable off-road, there are many modification kits available in the country. This is the perfect car to go for that private family holiday at that place that most people have no idea about.

The freedom to feel the breeze in your hair: MINI Cooper Convertible

Mini Cooper S Convertible First Drive roof

There are few other cars which combine the feeling of being closer to nature like a two-wheeler and the safety of a four-wheeler as well as a convertible. And what better way to enjoy that unique feeling than to drive the most affordable new convertible you can buy in India, the MINI Cooper Convertible.

Mini Cooper S Convertible First Drive panning

With a flick of a toggle-switch, the fabric roof of the MINI folds down in 18 seconds at speeds of up to 30kmph. On a good day, the Convertible makes the otherwise confined spaces of a car transform into a claustrophobic's paradise. The sun is shining, the wind is blowing, you look and feel cool and there is not a worry in the world.

The freedom to stretch out one's legs: Mercedes-Benz E-Class

features significant changes and segment firsts

The freedom to travel in style and luxury is now not restricted to those who can spend a minimum of Rs 1 crore; spend half of that and you can enjoy almost similar levels of backseat comfort.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is just under 20cm shorter than the company's flagship sedan and has a wheelbase about 90cm shorter too. In the top-of-the-line 350d trim, the E-Class offers similar equipment to keep you comfortable at the back.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class L - Rear Seats

The rear seats recline, feature headrests which can be controlled electronically and the front passenger seat can be pushed forward to free up more than enough space to stretch your legs. If you ever felt like buying that car to relax in between your busy schedule, the E-Class offers you that freedom

Fords Survey Proves Common Sense Is Right

Ford SYNC 3

performed a survey with 700 participants in India to find out what distracts us the most while driving. The study found that 57 per cent of participants had either had an accident or a close shave due to distracted driving. For some reason, Ford also included those participants who knew someone with a 'distracted driving' story.

53 per cent said that they had used the phone when stuck in traffic or at a stop light. The carmaker took the opportunity to inform them that it is illegal to do so even if you are unable to move an inch in the traffic. 54 per cent said that they were more likely to indulge in a telephonic conversation with their family while driving. The rest prioritised work over family while driving.

Ford Endeavour Was The First To Get SYNC 3

44 per cent agreed to having sent a message over WhatsApp, Messenger, etc., using social media or talked to someone while driving the car. Young parents also said that kids in the car were a big reason for distraction. 42 per cent of the participants are aware of the dangers of using a phone while also managing the wheel but end up using it anyway. Over three-fourth of those claims to have used the camera while driving, just because they were bored.

A ray of hope shining through the findings here is that people are aware of the dangers and want to lose the habit of glancing at their phones. 92 per cent of people said that they'd like to be trained in dealing with distracted driving and how they can stay more focused during the driving session.

Hyundai And Maruti Offer Android Auto And Apple Carplay On Most Cars

Rahul Gautam, vice president of marketing, Ford India, said, "More people face fatalities on Indian roads because of other's faults. Ford is committed to helping raise awareness of road safety and educating drivers on safe driving practices. Phones are a great distraction normally, but behind the wheel, they can be life threatening."

The company hopes to treat this distraction with its SYNC 3 infotainment system that can be used with voice commands. If you're not a fan of Microsoft's work, then you should consider the Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, which are more likely to offer a seamless integration with your smartphone. That's because, in the case of Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, Google/Apple manages the end-to-end software integration. That means the phone's operating system and the infotainment system's interface are tightly intertwined. You can also use voice commands to carry out tasks on your phone with the virtual assistant that comes baked into your phone.

Mahindra KUV100 Facelift Spotted Testing

Mahindra KUV100 Facelift

The quirky looking has been in the country for more than a year and a half now. Initially welcomed with open arms, the KUV craze settled down pretty soon after the Maruti Ignis was launched. But now, Mahindra is working on an update of the KUV 100 which looks to be a minor facelift. Test mules have been spotted in the country and from what we can see, the facelift KUV 100 will get a few cosmetic changes. And though the interiors have not been spied yet, we expect the updated hatchback to get some additional goodies as well.

From the front, a distinct change is the headlamps. The seemingly all new headlamp cluster, underlined by indicators, now features a dual-barrel setup. The test mule we spotted did not feature daytime running lights which suggests that it is not the top variant. The top-of-the-line KUV100 will feature DRLs and might also get projector lenses. Dare we say LEDs, Mahindra? Apart from the headlamps, no other changes could be spotted on the front profile, yet. However, this is just one of the early test mules and we expect a refreshed front bumper on the later ones.

Mahindra KUV100 Facelift



As this is a minor facelift, the side profile, as expected, will remain the same. If Mahindra wishes to mix things up, it can offer a new set of alloy wheels, though of the same R15 dimensions. Move to the rear and the latest test mule that was spotted recently features a redesigned bumper (the older mules just had the new headlamp). Apart from that, we expect the KUV100 facelift to also feature LED elements in the taillamps.

Though interiors have not been spied yet, expected changes include a touchscreen system from the Scorpio and an automatic climate control unit, especially since both of the KUV's rivals () flaunt these features. Other minor changes could include a new upholstery option.

Mahindra KUV100 Facelift

Mechanically, we expect the KUV100 to retain the 1.2-litre engines - mFalcon G80 petrol and mFalcon D75 diesel. The petrol engine makes 83PS of power and 115Nm of torque, while the diesel makes 78PS of power and 190Nm of torque. Both come mated to a joystick-type-shift 5-speed manual transmission. Though we do not expect the addition of an AMT in this facelift, the addition of an automatic will truly bring it on par with the competition.

If the KUV facelift does receive all the aforementioned updates, it shall once again become competitive in the market. The Grand i10 has received a facelift this year and with the new KUV100, the segment will be refreshed. With the changes expected, the Mahinda KUV100's starting price should not see much of a hike. To put things into perspective, the top variant could see the price going up by Rs 15,000.
