Toyota Etios Liva Hatchback First Drive

Toyota Etios Liva Overview

The Toyota Etios Liva has been facing tough competition in the hatchback segment from its rivals. Toyota had updated both the Etios and Liva back in 2016 but it still couldn’t manage to keep up with others in sales. To keep up with the sales of its rivals, Toyota has launched a new Dual-Tone Etios Liva. The new vehicles gets roof rails, dual-tone contrast roof and pillars, a front grille with a black coloured finish, new fog lamps with chrome finish, diamond cut alloy wheels and electrically foldable ORVMs.

The Toyota Etios Liva Dual-Tone is available in the V and VX trims only. The car comes with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and ISOFIX child seat locks as standard. On the inside, the hatchback gets a new piano black instrument panel, rear removable headrests and a new Optriton Combimeter. Toyota Etios Liva in Tryaldrive

Toyota Etios Liva Exterior & Look

The plain vanilla styling on the Toyota Etios may be ideal for people who do not like to grab attention in their mid-life. However, when the Liva was spawned, it looked crisper than the booted brother with the better finished rear end. The boxy body with minimum curves and slashes looks contemporary. In the recent facelift of the Etios Liva, Toyota has given the vehicle an updated grille with chrome finish along with new tail lights with minor modifications in the turn indicators which now use orange glass rather than clear glass.

The major contributor to the feel good factor is the subtle body kit, rear spoiler, gunmetal finished 15-inch alloy wheels (all other Liva variants get 14-inchers) and a plethora of TRD Sportivo badges. The side skirts, front-lip, boot-lid, rear-spoiler, side-skirts and even the rear bumper is not spared from TRD Sportivo badges.

Toyota Etios Liva Interior & Comfort

The best of the features of the Etios Liva are found in the interiors, though they are of course similar to the Etios. Just as in the Etios, Toyota has put the instrument cluster in the middle portion like that of Vista. When it had been introduced by Tata Motors, it had received lot of negative comments. Perhaps at this time, the Toyota Etios Liva’s dashboard would be better received. Further, the music system is nicely placed surrounded by the instrument cluster, with blower vents and AC control knobs beneath the dashboard. Also glove box is designed well to accommodate good lot of materials and has provision of AC input to keep things cool.

The seating positioning is good and one has ample space for stretching his legs. There is good amount of head room too to help for comfortable seating for tall persons. The integrated head rest seats on the front are of alright quality, and help provide extra length for back. Steering wheel is slightly oval shaped, making it stand out a bit. In the VX variant, we find audio controls on steering wheel also. The power window switches provided on the driver side door help for ease of operation.On the rear seats of the Liva there is good leg space and comfortable seating for three passengers. Though there is good back support, one could feel the seat is bit narrow, lacking full comfort for thighs. Indeed, from the rear the car looks wider than it is on the inside.

The integrated front seats help for better support but at the same time block the front side visibility for rear seat passengers. Bottle holders are provided in the rear door panels, and would certainly be a advantage for the convenience of the passenger.The foldable rear seat provides expandable space for luggage. The seat lock is easy to operate, just a simple flip is enough to open it and fold the seat. The panel on the back can be used for fitment of additional speakers if needed and it is also detachable easily to accommodate of easy of usage of interiors.Even with rear seat in sitting position, there is good enough space in boot to accommodate for storage of two or three bags.Indeed, all in all the interiors are a great boosting factor for Etios Liva. Though, it should be noted that we saw the dual tone version, and the single colour, black interior may be less impressive.

Toyota Etios Liva Engine & Gearbox

Toyota has not made much of a change under the hood of this hatchback and thus it gets the same 1.2 Litre, 4 cylinder, 16V DOGC motor which is capable of producing about 80 Ps of peak power at 5, 600 rpm and 104 Nm of peak torque at 3, 100 rpm. The engine is paired to a 5 speed manual gearbox. The petrol unit promises to return around a claimed mileage figure of 18.16 kmpl.

Like we already mentioned above the Etios Liva hatchback is also offered with a diesel variant as well. The 1.5 Liter, 4 cylinder 8V, D-4D unit is capable of producing about 68 ps of peak power at 3, 800 rpm and 170 Nm of peak torque 1800- 2400 rpm. As you all know the the only transmission option available with both the engine is a 5 speed manual unit. This diesel unit promises to deliver around 23. 59 kmpl.

Toyota Etios Liva Ride & Handling

The suspension setup on the Liva has been setup to provide best of both worlds. The handling is neutral. Liva turns into corners quickly, thanks to the lower kerb weight. There is a bit of body roll and the steering feel is average. It is nowhere as feedback rich or eager as the Maruti Suzuki Swift or the Ford Figo in the corners. The electronic steering is light and does city duties well but it does not offer feedback or weight up at high speeds. The steering wheel in particular is not good enough to hold in the first place, it’s too big.

The ride quality is mature and the wide tyres offer splendid levels of grip. The Liva doesn’t get unsettled on bad roads and absorbs most bumps in its stride remaining reasonably composed. Braking is excellent with good pedal feel and offer quick speed shedding capacity. High speed stability is good too and changing lanes does not upset the car’s balance. Ground clearance is not an issue and we did not scrape the body kit or the under body on any large speed breakers at all.

Toyota Etios Liva Safety & Security

Toyota has taken care of the safety of the passengers inside and a s a result they actually have loaded the LIva hatchback with ABS and EBD which comes as standard across all its grades. Furthermore the hatch also gets duel front SRS airbags as well. There is also an optional rear parking sensors as well with the car.

Toyota Etios Liva On-Road Price in Gurgaon ranges from 6,00,087 to 8,35,071 for variants Etios Liva G and Etios Liva VXD Dual Tone respectively. Toyota Etios Liva is available in 12 variants and 10 colours. Below are details of Toyota Etios Liva variants price in Gurgaon. Check for Etios Liva price in Gurgaon at Carzprice

Toyota Etios Liva Conclusion

The Etios Liva can be termed as a better late than never introduction of a hatchback car from Toyota. It is the car for people who want a hatchback with the Quality of Toyota at a good price. Indeed, the competitive price with different options is a great boosting factor for the entry variant, which is however quite poorly equipped. As features get added, the price does shoot up steeply.While the Etios Liva maintains a good quality, Toyota has necessarily compromised on a few points of brand image which one could have seen in an Endeavour or Altis, in order to provide a reliable premium hatch car in the range of 5 to 7.5 Lakh.

Honda introduced the first ever compact sedan, the Amaze in the year 2013 in India. The car comes under limits of a four-meter length, and the company has managed to carve out an amazingly spacious cabin and boot to make the vehicle a capable and practical package. However, since its launch, many competitors in the extremely competitive segment have come up with their updated models, creating troubles for Amaze. So, Honda responded rather quickly and revealed its all-new Amaze at the Auto Expo 2018. This time around, it has ditched the underpinnings of Brio and has been built on an all-new platform for better results. The inner and outer profile of the car has been updated while the mechanicals remain the same. Honda Amaze in Tryaldrive

It gets a flat and muscular looking front fascia with sharp headlamps featuring integrated LED positioning lights. There is a thick and wide chrome bar and bold bumper with black housing boasting the fog lamps.At the side profile too, the boxy look of the front fascia is visible and it comes with sporty alloy wheels, body coloured door handles, large glass area, LED turn indicator integrated ORVMs. Moving to the back, the taillights get a C shaped look inspired from the tenth generation Honda Civic sedan. A muscular bumper is also there, while the boot-lid gets a slightly protruding lip spoiler like part.

Honda Amaze Interior & Space

On the inside, the Honda Amaze has a lot of cabin space and can seat four adults comfortably. The 2 DIN integrated audio has USB, AUX-in and Bluetooth streaming as well as phone connectivity with steering mounted audio controls. The beige/black combination on the dashboard with beige fabric seats makes the cabin feel airier. Large windows, even for the rear passengers makes the rear occupants feel less claustrophobic and the carved out front seats also add to more leg room for the rear without making the occupants in the first row uncomfortable.

Honda Amaze Engine & Gearbox

The Honda Amaze is powered by two engine options a 1,198 cc petrol and a 1,498 diesel. Power generated by the petrol is 86.7hp at 6,000 rpm with 109Nm torque at 4,500 rpm. The diesel has more power at 98.6hp at 3,600 rpm and 200Nm at 1,750 rpm. Both engines are responsive and have a good rev band. The diesel in particular has a good low end torque, however, there is considerable engine noise that creeps into the cabin.The Honda Amaze has three transmission options namely a 5 speed manual for the petrol, a CVT for the petrol as well as a 5 speed manual for the diesel engine. All gearboxes are smooth and they slot in fine. There is a bit of vibration in the gear lever of the diesel Honda Amaze variants.

The Honda Amaze has one of the best mileage figures for its segment. While the petrol manual has a claimed fuel efficiency of 17.8 km/l, interestingly, the CVT versions have a better mileage figure rated at 18.1 km/l. The diesel has a mileage of 25.8 km/l. These figures are courtesy of the light minimum kerb weight of 940 kg for the petrol and 1050 kg for the diesel.The petrol manual variant of the new Amaze generates 19.5 kmpl of mileage, while the petrol CVT model generates 19 kmpl. On the other hand, the diesel manual variant offers 27.4 kmpl of fuel efficiency, while the diesel CVT generates 23.4 kmpl.

Honda Amaze Driving Dynamics

In terms of performance and handling capacity, the new Amaze comes impressive compared to the old model. Honda has refined the handling of this car compared to the predecessor, while performance too has been improved.What amazes the driver in the new Amaze is the fantastic ride quality. The new platform has allowed intense recalibration of the suspension system. As a result, the bad roads and undulation are hardly noticeable. While the suspension setup helps glide over poor surfaces with ease, on highways, it feels more poised and cocooned.

Honda Amaze Braking & Safety

All trims also have the option of getting dual front airbags and ABS come standard across all diesel variants.The new Honda Amaze gets several safety features that include dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, child seat anchor points and seatbelt warning.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS Review & Test Drive

Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS Overview

The Baleno RS is the company’s second launch of the year after the Ignis and is the faster version of the existing Baleno model. It is also the company’s entry into the ‘hot hatchback’ segment in India.The ‘RS’ in Baleno RS stands for ‘Road Sport’ and comes fitted with a 998cc BoosterJet petrol engine that delivers 100 horsepower and 150 Nm of torque and comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission setup. The three-cylinder motor can churn out so much power due to a bit of forced induction trickery and the help of a turbocharger.  Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS  On road price starts from 8,36,309/-. Check for price details of Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS in CarzPrice.

When it comes to appearance, then the Baleno RS gets a few nips and tucks. The front-end design has been updated with projector headlamps, new grille layout and a new bumper. The side profile remains similar as the existing Baleno but now gets side skirts and blacked-out wheels. The back gets the ‘RS’ badging and an updated bumper as well.Inside the car, the biggest attraction is the inclusion of the SmartPlay infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and in terms of safety, the Baleno RS comes with dual airbags, disc brakes on all four wheels, ABS and EBD.

pasear-w.com

Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS Design

A quick look at the Baleno RS makes it tough to spot any key differences but a closer look reveals the new bumpers at front and rear along with skirtings all around. The alloy wheels are the same as found in the standard Baleno but in the RS they’re painted in black. The rear bumper too features a blackened out area that looks particularly well with contrasting colours.Overall, the Baleno RS looks sportier than the regular version without being too loud. While one might say Maruti has played it safe, I think this approach is better since cars with a loud exterior have always been received with mixed reactions from Indian consumers.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS Cabin

Inside the cabin, the Baleno RS 1.0 mimics the same interiors as the Baleno standard with the same equipment list and design. The overall quality, fit and finish feel good, and there is good attention to detail inside the cabin. However, some plastics are compromised on their quality. The seats are very well shaped, and offer good comfort and support. All the seats have excellent cushioning with plenty of legroom and headroom. There are decent amount of storage spaces inside the cabin to keep the car clean and tidy. The placement of the centre console is ergonomic and all the controls fall in easy reach of the hand. The multifunctional steering wheel feels good to hold, and has numerous buttons to control the audio system and phone. All the windows are fairly large in size, and the front and side visibility is very good. The boot is decently sized at 339 litre and the rear seats can be flipped forward in a 60:40 split format, which aids in practicality.

The 7.0-inch touch screen infotainment system gets all sorts of connectivity options (including AUX, USB, iPod and Bluetooth). The audio system comes with four speakers and offers excellent sound quality. Some of the key features include keyless entry, follow-me home headlamps, automatic climate control, front centre armrest, tilt and telescopic steering, reverse camera, parking sensor (rear), leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, and body-coloured electrically-adjustable ORVMs with turn indicators, to name a few. The TFT instrument cluster has been carried over from the standard Baleno and it omits various parameters like distance to empty, instantaneous fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, average speed, gear indicator, shift indicator, etc.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS Performance

The main reason for buying the Baleno RS is its new 1 litre three-cylinder Boosterjet engine, which develops 99 hp and 150 Nm of torque. On the track, we spent most of the time caning the motor and the engine absolutely loves to be revved. There is enough action till about 6,000 rpm, after which the rev limiter kicks in.

There is hardly any lag from the engine even at slow speeds and going quickly is quite rewarding. Acceleration is brisk and the power delivery is linear. We managed to accelerate from a standstill to 100 km/h in 10.26 seconds. On the back straight, our top speed was a speedo indicated 183 kmph, which is an impressive number for a hatchback. As of now, the company is only offering a five-speed manual transmission in the Baleno RS. While, purists will love the manual gearbox, there are customers who would’ve liked the option of an automatic as well.

The gearbox itself works well and the shifts are precise and the throws are short. The clutch too is light so driving this car in traffic too should be effortless.With the pace of the car going up, Maruti Suzuki has rightfully upgraded the brakes too. The Baleno RS gets an all-disc setup instead of the front disc and rear drum setup on the regular Baleno. While braking from 180 kmph too the car was stable and brake fade too was minimal The suspension too has been stiffened up a bit and as a result of this, body-roll was controlled in the car during high-speed cornering on the track. With updated steering gear ratios, the steering too feels quicker and the feedback from the unit is praiseworthy.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS Rideing

The handling is much better than the regular Baleno. There is a good amount of torque right from the low end and the Baleno RS 1.0 potters around the city without much effort. The power delivery is very crisp and linear. The engine feels quite refined and the NVH levels are well within control. The steering wheel offers decent feedback; it is light, easy to operate at low speeds and weighs up nicely as the speed increases. The ride quality is excellent for the most part, and so is the handling with tight body control and eagerness to dive into corners. The suspension set-up is nice and most of the potholes, broken patches of road, etc., are tackled easily. The car remains planted always and maintains its composure even at high speeds.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS Safety

All the wheels get disc brakes along with ABS and EBD, and hence the vehicle never runs out of stopping power. The carmaker is also offering other usual features, like engine immobilizer, keyless central locking, speed-sensing doors, child safety door and seat belt warning.View offers on Maruti Cars from Maruti dealers in Hyderabad at Autozhop

The new model Baleno RS 1.0 offers a good balance of performance and handling, something which is bound to go down well with prospective buyers. The main opposition includes Fiat Abarth Punto, Volkswagen Polo GT and Ford Figo.The Baleno RS is priced at Rs 8.69 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi, which is a competitive price tag for the car, considering the experience it offers. While the interior of the Baleno RS is unchanged and the exterior is mildly updated, the driving experience is totally different from the regular Baleno.

What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO) & Guidelines For It

Ello - SEO Agency

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is one type of optimization techniques that make a website/blog important to search engines and shows that website/blog’s specific content in the first result page. It is a dream of every website owner to keep his/her website/blog in the top of search engine result pages. When a website/blog found in the top result of a search engine, it ensures huge traffic and huge traffic ensures more revenues from that website/blog.

The web is a place where unlimited websites/blogs are available and it is so tough to keep a website/blog in the first result page. Every day lots of sites are registered and exist sites are becoming a competitor of each other. Then it becomes too hard to stay on top of first result pages. For this problem, SEO techniques have a great application to get success and to achieve the goal of first ranking in search engine result pages.For Digital Marketing Companies Check Vivid Digital

A lot of factors are related to search engine optimization and it is a continuous process for a long duration of time to achieve a target. Its demand is increasing day-by-day because competitors are increasing day-by-day. Without right SEO Techniques, you can’t succeed in online business because it’s the secret of online success. Why Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Is Important for a Website/Blog? Think as a visitor Now-a-days we can get everything from the web.

There are lots of option for a single product. Just, for example, if you want to buy a laptop then you can get lots of websites where lots of brands and in every brand lots of models. So which one you will buy? Obviously the best one. Now think how you can choose the best one? Again you must be depended on search engines to find that. Every search engine, especially Google always keep the qualified websites/blogs in the top of search engine result pages. Only SEO can make a website/blog qualified to search engines.

As a result, you can get the best choice. Think as a website/blog owner People love search engines because it gives a better result and search engines love qualified website/blog because people want that.

Guidelines for Search Engine Friendly Website:

Though search engine spiders are becoming more sophisticated through time, the simple assumption and aims remain the same: spiders locate pages by following hyperlinks and capture the content of these pages that they find from the search engine’s index (a giant repository of information about pages and websites).

Along with preventing the methods we just mentioned, there are some new guidelines for creating search engine–favourable navigation:

1. Employ a Text-Link-Based Navigational Structure:

If you decide to make navigation in Flash, JavaScript, or any alternative technology which the search engine might be unable to parse, be confident that you provide other text links from HTML for spiders to make sure that automatic robots (and people who might not have the necessary browser plug-ins) may accomplish your web pages. For SEO Agency in London visit here

2. Tired of “Spider Traps”:

Even intelligently researched search engine spiders could get lost from infinite loops of hyperlinks which move between pages on a website. Intelligent structure that averts recursively looping 301 or 302 HTTP server codes (or alternative redirection protocols) have to re-evaluate this issue, however occasionally online calendar hyperlinks, boundless pagination that loops content being obtained or piled in a large number of manners (faceted navigation) can produce thousands of web pages such as search engine spiders if you planned to have just a couple of dozen accurate pages of articles.

3. Watch out for Session IDs and Cookies:

When we just mentioned, should you restrict a user’s capability to see web pages or redirect according to a cookie placing or session ID, search engines could be not able to crawl your articles. The bots don’t have cookies allowed, nor will they cope with session IDs correctly (each trip by the crawler receives a URL using another session ID, along with also the search engine sees these URLs with session IDs as distinct URLs). Although limiting form admissions is good (like search spiders cannot submit forms anyhow), restricting content accessibility via cookies and session IDs is a lousy idea.

4. Be cautious of host hosting, and IP issues:

Server issues infrequently induce search engine ranking issues –but if they do, catastrophic consequences may follow. The engines are aware of shared server issues, including downtime or overloading, and also will provide you the benefit of the doubt (however this may mean your articles can’t be crawled during times of server malfunction). On the reverse side, websites hosted on content delivery networks (CDNs) can get crawled more significantly, and CDNs provide significant performance improvements to a site.

The IP address of your server could be of concern on occasion. IPs formerly belonging to websites which have spammed the search engines can continue with them negative relationships that could interfere with indexing and ranking. Though the engines are not particularly picky about shared hosting vs. dedicated servers and dedicated IP addresses, or on server programs, you can prevent many hassles by visiting these paths.

In the very minimum you ought to be careful and locate a host that you expect, and investigate in the background and “cleanliness” of the IP address you might be delegated, since the search engines have gotten paranoid concerning the usage of particular domains, hosts, and IP addresses, and also cubes of IPs. To know more about the Search Engine Optimization Field or anything related to Digital Marketing Field, Join Digital Marketing Course in Delhi and get trained by the Best Digital Marketers that our Nation has to Offer.

Experience informs them that a lot of them have strong correlations with junk, and so, eliminating them in the index may have great rewards for consumers. As a website owner not participating in such practices, you will discover it pays to research your internet host before getting into trouble.

Maruti suzuki Ertiga First Drive & Performance

Maruti Ertiga Overview

The new Maruti Ertiga 2018 has been launched. The car’s price starts at Rs 7.44 lakhs (ex-showroom). There will be now CNG variant offered and also there will not be a automatic with any diesel variant at the moment. There was also talk that a new six-speed gearbox will be brought with this generation; for now there are no plans of that too. Book a test drive for Ertiga in Hyderabad at Tryaldrive

Check for Maruti Ertiga  Price in  Ahmedabad

The car will now come with new features and specs like Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, standard dual airbags, Hill Hold, LED tail-lights, projector headlamps, push start stop, air cooled cupholder, wooden finish interior and most importanty a micro hybrid system in the form of SHVS. The car will get new colors, a new pricing has been announced and the dimensions of the car have changed too. To get up to speed with the new 2018 Ertiga, scroll down.

Maruti Ertiga Exterior & Style

On the road, the new Ertiga grabs more attention than the first generation model. The heavy usage of chrome on the front grille might not be to everyone’s liking, but it certainly makes the new Ertiga eye-catchy. The busy design of the bumper and headlamps further make the front look striking. Daytime running lights, whether integrated within the headlamps or on the front bumper, would have added a touch of modernity and given it a premium feel. Hopefully, aftermarket kits will be able to cater to these needs.Unlike the front, which might polarize opinions, the rear will appeal to most. The three-part tail lamps with LED lights climb on to the D-pillar and look stylish. Sharp creases on the boot lid that extend to the bumper make the rear look crisp. The Ertiga has gained 40mm in width, but it isn’t noticeable unless both the first- and second-gen models are placed side-by-side.

A thick shoulder line runs from the front fender to the tail lamps and cuts some bulk of the big doors. The floating roofline adds a modern touch to the design. 15-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels look similar to the ones on the Indonesia-spec Ertiga and, in my personal opinion, do not do justice to the otherwise striking front and smart rear. The new Ertiga measures 4395mm in length, which is 99mm more than the outgoing model. And it does look longer, especially when you look past the C-pillar.New Ertiga’s colour palette has five options to choose from — Auburn Red (maroon), Oxford Blue (same as the Dzire’s blue), Magma Grey (same as the Dzire’s grey), Silky Silver (same as the Dzire’s silver) and Pearl Arctic White (same as the Dzire’s white). Dark colours like black, brown or even the Swift’s Midnight Blue might have made the Ertiga look more appealing.

Maruti Ertiga Interior & Comfort

The interior of the new Maruti Ertiga gets a beige colour scheme which lends an airy feel. Expectedly, a lot of switches/knobs are shared with other Maruti cars but still the cabin feels like a nice place to be in. There are some plasticky bits around but quality has definitely improved over the older car. The dashboard’s design is neat with controls falling within easy reach of the hand. The elongated AC vent design on the passenger side of the dashboard reminds us of the Audi Q7. Storage spaces in the cabin are aplenty, all the doors have 1-litre bottle holders along with space for other nitty-gritties.

In terms of features on offer, the new Ertiga gets quite a lot and it even shares most of its features with the Ciaz. The equipment list includes a SmartPlay infotainment system with navigation, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto (same unit that we’ve seen on multiple Maruti cars), automatic climate control, passive entry with push button start, cooled cup holders in the centre console and 12V charging sockets in all rows. However, the Ertiga misses out on some features like auto-dimming IRVM, rain-sensing wipers and automatic headlamps.

The front seats are large and offer good comfort. Outward visibility for the driver is excellent thanks to the large glass area. The seats get supportive cushioning and things are even better at the rear with the increased space. The rear seat is also quite comfy and roomy. It can also be rake adjusted for more space and reclined for better comfort. It comes with a centre armrest too. The third row is wider by 34 mm and leg room has increased by 70 mm but it is still suitable only for kids because knee room is limited and a tall person can fit only if the person sitting ahead has pushed his seat ahead. The third row seat can also be reclined. With all rows up, boot space is 290-litres but it can be expanded to 550-litres with the third row folded down and 803-litres with the second row folded too.

Maruti Ertiga Engine & Performance

In terms of engines, there will be a new 1.5-litre petrol engine that will produce about 103bhp of power and 138Nm of torque. The petrol engine will be offered with the five-speed manual and a automatic four-speed gearbox from the Ciaz. There will be no CNG option available with this engine. It was thought, that a factory fitted unit will be offered. The 1.3-litre diesel engine will produce about 90bhp of power and 200Nm of torque. This is the old DDIS 200 engine and will come with a five-speed manual. There was a expectation that the diesel will come with a new six-speed manual and a AMT option. Maruti seems to be ready to offer AMT on all its vehicles now. Recently the Vitara Brezza also got launched with an AMT in diesel. There is a chance of the Ertiga also getting a diesel AMT later on.

The engine feels more lively with the 5-speed manual transmission than with the 4-speed automatic unit, which is a torque converter. The automatic transmission is more suited for relaxed and not spirited driving. It takes its own sweet time to respond (change gears) to accelerator inputs, so overtaking manoeuvres will require a bit of planning. Claimed fuel efficiency for the more powerful petrol engine is more than the 1.4-litre, 92PS engine, and that could be down to the mild-hybrid technology.The 1.3-litre, 90PS diesel engine is the same unit that powered the new Ertiga’s predecessor. It’s been carried over unchanged but the claimed fuel efficiency for the diesel-manual powertrain has also gone up by almost a kilometre to a litre but that could be due to the fact that the newer version is lighter by about 20kg.

Maruti Ertiga Driving Dynamics

The suspension on the new Maruti Ertiga gets a soft setup and ride quality is just excellent. The MPV tackles bad roads very confidently and feels much more stable too compared to the older car. But, the steering could have done with more feel and feedback. Body control is very good even though there is some body roll. This car isn’t really meant for driving fast on the corners, it’s more about cruising. Braking performance is also very good while the tyres have decent levels of grip.

Maruti Ertiga Braking & Safety

The new Ertiga is available with dual front airbags, ABS, EBD, Isofix child seat mounts and front seatbelt pretensioners with load limiters as standard. With those features ticked, it meets the minimum requirement for us to recommend it to buyers in any variant. Features like speed-sensitive auto door lock and central locking are also standard. The variants with automatic transmission get ESP and hill hold feature.

Maruti Ertiga Conclusion

Maruti has launched another blockbuster and the new Ertiga is going to be a sales success just like the older model. It offers good space and comfort, many features and excellent fuel economy. Maruti’s stellar service network is another big plus point. The new Ertiga is also priced attractively and at this price point, there is no other car that comes close to this.The Maruti Ertiga’s compact proportions and spacious cabin make it an ideal family car. Competitive pricing and Maruti Suzuki’s service backing works as an icing on the cake for this MPV. It’s a no-nonsense 7-seater UV that checks most boxes right.

Land Rover Discovery Performance & First Drive

Land Rover Discovery Overview

The Land Rover Discovery 2017, the much- awaited SUV, has finally hit the Indian shores. The new design of the Discovery is not as tough and rugged as the old Discovery, but feels really futuristic with that box look being given new curvy edges, sharp looks and a blocky back. The new LED headlamps give it the look of a Range Rover. This new 7- seater Land Rover Discovery gets a completely new aluminum monocoque frame, making it lighter and hence making it more efficient. The SUV still drives like a Discovery, not like a Range Rover or Range Rover sport in any way; it’s all smooth and easy to go with minimal engine noise getting inside the cabin.

Land Rover Discovery Design

The Discovery 4 is an updated version of Discovery 3 to make it look similar to the Range Rover styling. The Discovery 4 or LR4 as it is known in the North American market now has an urbane styling when compared to its predecessor.The front grille resembles that of the Range Rover, and it also gets the additional side metal scoop. The Land Rover’s clamshell hood is retained and even the stepped roof of the Discovery.The roof rails have now gone off and the silhouette looks more contemporary than the previous Discovery. The older Discovery was a derivative of a typical early 2000s. The glass surrounding the third row of seats is now smaller and the wheel arches do not have the bulge. The rear still gets the step glass and lower part of the bumper is black. This continues till the rocker.

Land Rover Discovery Cabin

The Discovery’s cabin is all about practicality, one with multiple usable storage spaces. Other than the usual array of glove boxes and door pockets, it gets a large storage box behind the rotary gear selector. There’s even a fairly big cool box under the front armrest which is a really neat feature. Lastly, there’s the hugely configurable seating arrangement in the 7-seater variant as all three rows are electrically adjustable.Being a tall vehicle, the Discovery offers excellent all-round visibility and a driving position that is more than high enough for that commanding view of the road. As for the seat comfort, the front seats are massive and offer immense side support and even under-thigh support – they are large enough to keep you comfortable for long hauls.

Similarly, there is plenty of room at the back, with a rear bench that is broad and spacious enough to accommodate three adults easily. Thanks to the Disco’s width, there is hardly any jostling for shoulder room or that feeling of being pushed onto the doors. Although the rear bench is set a tad bit low, it is superbly contoured and the low seating translates to plenty of headroom. Sadly, this new model cannot match its predecessor when it comes to third-row seating comfort – the pair of seats is smaller and to make matters worse, there’s noticeably less thigh support.As for the features, the Discovery is fully loaded and comes with a 14-speaker premium multimedia system, adaptive LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, 360-degree parking, a head-up display, 4-zone climate control, interior mood lighting and a tonne of safety tech. However, we would like to add that a lot of features from the spec list are optional extras.

Land Rover Discovery Performance

The Land Rover Discovery price in India starts from Rs. 68.05 (Ex-showroom, New Delhi) and goes up to more than Rs. 1 Crore if you go for the top-end variant. The new Discovery comes with 2 engine options: 3.0 L turbocharged diesel and 3.0 L supercharged petrol both mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox and being 6- cylinder engines. The Land Rover Discovery specifications for the engine are, 190 bhp of power and 600 nm of torque for the diesel engine, while the petrol engine is sportier, producing 250 bhp of power and 450 Nm of torque. You also get the terrain response with lower gear ratios.

The new Land Rover Discovery mileage has gone up due to the loss of weight. The earlier Discovery used to give around 11 kmpl of mileage, while the new one gives around 13 kmpl, which is not bad at as this kind of efficiency and does justice to the Land Rover Discovery price.

Land Rover Discovery Driving

The Discovery has a smooth and composed ride. The suspension does a good job of absorbing most of the jolts and bumps. The Discovery 4 glides over bumps filtering out most of the shocks from being transferred into the cabin. The handling of the vehicle isn’t impressive considering the size and the centre of gravity of the SUV. But on highways and in city traffic the handling is good, and that is where the Discovery 4 will be spending a majority of its time. Even the steering wheel is light at low speeds and weighs up well when the speed increases. If some day the owner decided to take the Discovery 4 off the road, he shall be rewarded with the most capable off-road system. Five different terrain modes can be selected from the knob on the centre console. Off-roading in a Discovery is just effortless and this is the pinnacle of all the Land Rovers, even be it the voguish and urbane Evoque.

Land Rover Discovery Safety

The Land Rover Discovery features really good brakes with one of the best braking systems that allows safe and sound sudden halts, also housing a lot of safety features, like Electronic air suspension Stop/Start technology, Hill Descent Control (HDC) Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS), Electronic Traction Control (ETC), Hill Start Assist, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Roll Stability Control (RSC), Electric Parking Brake (EPB), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA ), Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD), Gradient Acceleration Control (GAC), front side impact airbags, side curtain airbags and a trip computer. All these features are not available in the basic variants. These safety features are enough to keep you and your family safe and sound.

Land Rover Discovery Price in Chennai

Land Rover Discovery Ex-Showroom Price in Chennai ranges from 71,36,581/- (Discovery S Petrol) to 1,07,88,559/- (Discovery First Edition Diesel). Get best offers for Land Rover Discovery from Land Rover Dealers in Chennai. Check for Discovery price in Chennai at Carzprice

Land Rover Discovery Verdict

The 2017 Discovery takes most of the old model’s traditional qualities – an immensely practical interior, long list of features and off-road hardware – and abbreviates them into a convincing premium SUV. At Rs 1.30 crore (on-road, Mumbai) for the top-spec diesel version, it’s not cheap and next to other European flagship SUVs, it doesn’t look as flamboyant either, however, if you are looking for a family SUV with a versatile cabin and legitimate go-anywhere capability, the new Discovery is difficult to not recommend.

The Land Rover Discovery is a very practical car being the most capable amongst its competitors which are the Audi Q7, Volvo XC90, Mercedes GLS and the BMW X5. It might not be the best in terms of performance among the competition but really gives you more value than the money spent on buying it. The features provided are also unique. Al though it looks smaller than the old Discovery, it is actually is quite similar in terms of size. The engines could have been more powered, but these 3.0 L petrol and diesel engines are really impressive. The Land Rover Discovery images can be seen on the Autoportal website, looking all glorious and ready to conquer terrains.

The US issued more than a million visas this year in India which also accounts for 72% of all H1B visas issued worldwide, said a top US official on Friday.While vast majority of travelers to the US are traveling on tourist and short-term business visas, India is also the largest beneficiary of H1B visas. Check for H1B Visa Evaluation in UT Evaluators

“Beyond tourism and short-term business travelers, the US welcome travel by skilled Indian workers. India is the largest beneficiary by far of H1B visas vis-A-vis skilled workers visas.

“So far just in this year, Indian workers received 72% of all the H1B visas the US issued worldwide. Similarly Indian workers received 30 percent of all L visas also long term business travel visas that we have issued worldwide,” said Michele Bond, Assistant Secretary of State for Consular Affairs.She said while there is no limit for issuing tourist visas, it was for the US Congress to take a decision on increasing HIB and L1 visas for India.They can`t predict whether that is likely to happen. It`s pretty obvious that there is more demand for those visas. We will see what decision is taken about whether and when that cap might be increased,” she told reporters here.

The US issues 138,000 H1B visas per year worldwide and on an average Indians get 70 percent of these visas. This year Indians have already received about 72 percent.The highest ranking US official on consular issues said they understand Indian companies` concern about higher fee for H1B and L1 visas. She, however, clarified that the fee hike is not targeted at India. H1B Visa Process Visit here

“That hike was result of legislation that was passed. The level of interest in visas has not changed because of this. We hope to continue to see very strong interest in applying for business visas and working in US,” she added.Stating that the commercial, economic and social ties between the two countries had strengthened, Bond pointed out that the number of business and tourist visas issues in India had gone up by 81 percent in five years.Last year, the US mission in India issued 60,000 student visas. The US consulate general in Hyderabad issued the largest number of student visas in India, more than any of the consulates and the embassy.

“This consulate general in Hyderabad issues fifth largest number of student visas in the world. It is at fifth position among more than 200 embassies and consulates around the world. We are really proud of our team in Hyderabad and the role they are playing in strengthening the bonds between two countries,” she said.Bond noted that the number of Indian students in the US increased to more than 132,000 last year. Indian students comprise second largest international student population in the US.She said the work on the new consulate building in Hyderabad will begin next year and it is scheduled to be completed in 2020. The new facility will have 52 interview windows against 16 at its existing location.

Larry Kudlow Says H1B Visa Policy Is Work In Progress

The White House, on Thursday, said that Donald Trump led administration is currently working on reforming the H1B visa programme. The H1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that US companies use to hire foreign workers for jobs that require theoretical or technical expertise. For H1B Visa Process Visit UT Evaluators

During an interaction with media reporters, Larry Kudlow, who is the chief economic advisor to the US President, admitted that companies currently are having difficulties in hiring people on H1B visas that mainly attracts talented foreign professionals, reported NDTV.

“The president has laid this out. We need legal immigration. We need skills-based, merit-based immigration,” Kudlow said adding, “Those are just a few of the issues. That would be terrific. We can’t seem to get it through Congress. But skills-based, and merit-based and not a family chain-based.”

Kudlow said the US government has initiated work of analyzing H1B visa policy.

“We’re looking at it. It’s a work in progress,” he said.

He added that other than H1 B visa, the government is also looking at other different kinds of visas and has proposed to get rid of the lottery system for visas. It remains unconfirmed if Kudlow was talking about H-1B visas’ lottery or diversity visas.  H1B Visa Evaluation Check here 

When asked if changes in the H-1B visas mean an increase in the number of visas to be allotted, Kudlow replied, “No.”

Currently, the US Congress has made a provision of allotting 65,000 H-1B visas per annum to people from different countries. An additional 20,000 H-1B visas have been reserved for those who have completed higher education from the US in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.
