Jeep Compass Overview

The Jeep Compass captured the imagination of many Indians when launched. This is an SUV which looks like it means business and comes at a relatively affordable price tag amongst the premium SUVs. Carrying a legendary brand value, the Compass has been selling well since launch. So much that FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) have been working double shifts to meet the demand and are gearing up to activate the third shift at their plant in Ranjangaon, Pune. The Jeep Compass was initially launched with a diesel engine only. Recently, the deliveries of the petrol version have commenced. We review the automatic version, which comes only with the petrol engine, unfortunately. How good is this version? Is it worth buying? Read further to know more about it.

Jeep Compass Design

At first glance it is easy to see what inspired the designers of the Compass – its bigger brother, the Grand Cherokee; this is especially obvious when you look at it from the front. But apart from that, the Compass has its own identity.The Jeep Compass looks tough but also premium, sophisticatedly brawny almost. At the front, the highlights include the wide swath of black that stretches from one headlight to the other – including the modern take on Jeep’s iconic 7-slat (chrome lines) grille. The headlamps have a white element in them which help them pop out – an almost animalistic ‘eyes’ look, according to Jeep’s lead designer Mark Allen. They also contain LED guide lights, these are not DRLs – the actual DRLs actually sit on the bumper, just above the fog lamps. The clamshell hood is sculpted, with a slight power bulge in the middle, but the lines on it are not harsh – Jeep wanted the Compass to look more inviting.

The Jeep logo sits on the bonnet, just above the grille. A small horizontal slat-like grille on the painted part of the bumper helps break the huge swath between the main grille and air dam, it also directs air towards the radiator. The air dam is as wide as the main grille and taller – it adds to the muscular look at the front. A chrome lip at the bottom of the air dam adds a bit of bling.The bulk of the Compass is actually hidden well thanks to the use of a thick black cladding that goes all around the car. The Jeep-signature trapezoidal wheel arches contain the 17-inch silver alloy wheels shod with Firestone 225/60 section all-weather tyres; it feels like larger wheels could have made the Compass look even better. Surface detailing like the lines over the wheel arches, the prominent line that passes through the door handles onto the taillamps etc. make the compact SUV exciting to look at. Prominent ‘Compass’ badges are placed on both the front doors. To know more details on Jeep Compass visit Lanetalab

The crowning jewel of the design here is the chrome line that separates the contrast-painted roof from the rest of the body – this line goes all the way from one outside rearview mirror (ORVM), over the windows, swoops down under the rear windshield, up over the windows on the other side to finally end at the other ORVM. The roof line seems to flow down towards the rear, while the windowline rises up, adding a kink at the very end of the windowline and the C-pillar looks like – according to Jeep – a shark fin! The roof rails and the spoiler do not stand out too much.At the rear, the design of the Compass becomes a bit sedate. Highlights here include the wraparound rear windshield with the chrome line running across its base, a two-part taillamps which consists of a prominent LED guide-light (mimicking the units in the headlamps), a slightly recessed number plate holder and a two part bumper with integrated fog lamps. The Jeep logo sits on a carved out recess just below the windshield, a unique touch.Look all around and the Jeep Compass feels solid, the panel gaps are consistent and the paint quality is impressive. The Jeep Compass is offered in five colour options – Exotic Red, Brilliant Black, Minimal Grey, Vocal White and Hydro Blue (the colour of the car you see in the pictures).

Jeep Compass Cabin

The Jeep’s cabin is a pleasant surprise. Yes, the design of the dash is quite boring and there are a few not-so-nice bits of hard and shiny plastic – the piano black surrounds around the vents being a prime example – and the touchscreen is small and a bit fiddly to use. Also, it’s quite a step up into the cabin, and the sill is wide, and that could be an issue for short or elderly folk. Otherwise, everything on the inside is executed to such a high level that there’s a genuine honest-to-god luxury car vibe here.

The soft-feel textures, supple leather, superbly finished bits of chrome and a build that’s genuinely tank-like, all leave a lasting impression. Jeep has been bold and has specified this top-of-the-line Limited 4×4 variant with premium Alpine leather interior. The soft and supple seats are finished in ‘snow white’ which won’t be easy to keep clean, but they feel so luxurious. And that’s not it: there’s the leather-wrapped steering wheel that gives the cabin a lift, the padded door pads are superbly crafted, the metal-tipped gear knob that gets cooled by the air-con vents is an absolute delight to hold, and the graphics on the screen inside the instrument panel are clear and easy to read. However, the dummy switches on the right of the steering wheel are all too conspicuous and a glaring reminder of missing features. There is a bit of reflection from the dials, and storage space on the centre console is limited, but otherwise, the cabin is thoroughly practical as well. Space on the inside is huge, with plenty of leg- and shoulder-room, and the front seats are extremely comfortable. The bench at the rear has been changed for India. There is now a lot more thigh support due to the longer squab, the seat height is just right, and the backrest is a tad vertical, which, unlike the Tucson’s, doesn’t recline. In fact, rear seat comfort is where the Tucson is clearly better than the Compass and its limited width makes it only suitable for two adults.

Jeep Compass Performance

A 2.0-litre multijet engine will be powering the Jeep Compass India . This will be offered with a six-speed manual . This engine will churn about 170bhp of power and 358Nm of maximum torque. The Jeep Compass India will be coming with AWD versions. This engine is likely to be shared with Tata Motors, upcoming new Harrier platform SUVs. Both the companies have a JV in Ranjangaon. The company’s plant is undergoing expansion at the moment. The diesel engine will be shared with the Tata Q501. This is also likely to be made in the same Ranjangaon plant. An automatic will be offered on the Compass diesel, but that shall be some time in 2018.

Jeep Compass – Gear KnobThe petrol engine will be the 1.4-litre, which will come in MultiAir avatar. This will churn about 160bhp of power and 250Nm of peak torque. This will get a six-speed manual and seven-speed automatic (dual-clutch) transmission. Both these engines will be manufactured in India as well. This is the same engine that is offered on the Abarth family but it has seen a jump in its power and even torque. This will improve its performance and even the six-speed/seven-speed transmission will improve its bandwidth.Whats more, both the companies are looking at exporting their cars from India. Jeep has just announced that there will be two gearboxes, manual and automatic (dual-clutch), we reckon the diesel should get the automatic if not the petrol. The 2017 Jeep Compass even gets Select Terrain Management System, which helps to enhance the driving experience, especially when driving on different terrain conditions. This is useful when driving off the road, on slush or sand or snowy conditions.

The new Jeep Compass will return about 13km/l in the city for the diesel and close to 17km/l on the highway. The petrol will have a mileage of 9km/l for the manual and automatic in city and close to 13km/l on the highway for both. There shall not be a major difference in the mileage for both the transmissions on petrol. Now going by the ARAI figures, the 2.0-litre 4×2 will return about 17.1km/l and 4×4 has 16.3km/l. No numbers have been released for the petrol engine.

Jeep Compass Riding

Jeep has impressed us in this department by offering Frequency Selective Damping suspension. The Compass is dynamically rich both on and off-road, having such equipment such as Dynamic Steering Torque (DST), Selec-Terrain and Jeep Active Drive. The ride is fantastic that filters out the bumps and potholes very well. The suspension is well damped and it’s only on huge craters that you feel the thuds filtering inside the cabin. There is some amount of body roll when you push around the bends but the steering feel and feedback is quite impressive for an SUV of this size. The Compass handles corners cleanly maintaining its line very well, thanks to the grippy all weather tyres and the AWD system.

The AWD system comes with four modes Auto, Snow, Sand and Mud. The power is front wheel biased and when it feels the need, the rear wheels come to action. We had an off-road session with the Compass in Goa in slippery and muddy conditions including water fording and a couple of steep inclines and declines. The baby Jeep proved to be quite capable in the rough terrain and it can handle some serious off-roading. The ground clearance is good but still, the front lip panel manages to touch the ground. The brakes are quite effective and offer strong stopping power.

Jeep Compass Safety in Hyderabad

Ofcourse the Jeep SUV is a global SUV, and the auto manufacturer will maintain Global safety standards when it comes to the safety of the occupants inside. The Jeep Compass will be equipped with airbags for both the front and rear passengers, while some other safety features like ABS, ESP and hill start assist will also be offered as standard.

Jeep Compass Price

Jeep Compass On Road Price is 20,11,186/- and Ex-showroom Price is 16,61,100/- in Hyderabad. Jeep Compass comes in 5 colours, namely Exotica Red,Hydro Blue,Vocal White,Brilliant Black,Minimal Grey. Jeep Compass comes with AWD with 1956 CC Displacement and 4 Cylinders with Maximum Power 170 bhp@3750 rpm and Peak Torque 350 Nm@1750-2500 rpm DRIVE TRAIN AWD and reaches 100 KMPH at N/A . Jeep Compass comes with Manual Transmission with AWD .

Jeep Compass Bottomline

Come to think of it, the dynamic abilities of the Compass are what make it shine as an SUV. Be it on road or off it, the Compass gave us little to complain about with its handling. Sure, the diesel engine is a bit noisy but that’s something that hardly comes in the way of an engaging drive thanks to the well set-up suspension and responsive steering. Boot space could have been slightly better, but most buyers wouldn’t mind trading that for the excellent legroom for second-row occupants. The feature list, at least on the Limited version we drove, is up to the mark as well, which adds to the SUV’s appeal. Its pricing then is key to the success of the Compass in our country, which is a highly price sensitive market, and we expect Jeep to price it in the 18-24 lakh rupee price bracket. The Compass is certainly a bread and butter model for the Jeep brand in India, and if priced well at the time of its launch this August, will certainly help Jeep rake in volumes and even achieve the cult status it enjoys the world over as an SUV maker.

7 Outrageous Real Estate Marketing Ideas That Actually Worked

Realty DS

Outrageous real estate marketing ideas are calculated risks that have paid off, garnering interest, sales and word-of-mouth without spending a fortune. While many agents struggle to differentiate themselves in fiercely competitive market spaces, some real estate agents dabble in the absurd and found that it actually worked to bolster their business.

While you might not be ready to take the plunge into the outrageous just yet, there are other real estate marketing tips that work,

Using the right real estate marketing tools and tactics can give you an edge over the competition, but what do you do if you really want to stand out in a unique, unexpected way? If you truly want to stand out from the average real estate business, sometimes you need to take a leap of marketing faith. Agents who are willing to go outside the norm, try something ambitious, and risk looking silly in the process can make massive marketing gains with creative, quirky tactics that other agents aren’t willing to try.

Grab some outside-the-box marketing inspiration with our look at seven outrageous real estate marketing ideas…that actually worked!

Free Pizza with Purchase of House

Look around for Keller Williams “for sale” signs in the neighborhood, and you may find a truly unique rider attached. Offering “free pizza with the purchase of a house” is a funny, tongue-in-cheek way to grab attention for the listing and market the real estate brand, even if a savory slice probably won’t close the deal on its own.

Empty Lot? Try “Open Concept” Home

Real estate Online Marketing Agency agent Eric Bonetti had an open lot to sell and wanted to add some appeal for potential buyers. So he placed a door—and only a door—on the lot, and called it an “open concept” home. His funny stunt was picked up by a variety of online outlets and surely brought more attention to the listing.

Making Your Own Music Video

If you’ve got a great singing voice or a clever idea for a real estate parody of a popular tune, then perhaps you’ll be bold enough to create a music video of your own. This outrageous marketing tactic takes some dedication and effort, but when done right can earn you some great visibility with online shoppers.

On the “Lamb”

Real estate broker Brad J. Lamb, who operates out of Toronto, realized that his last name creates a gold mine of quirky real estate marketing opportunities. Around the city, you may see an ad for a “lamb in space” with Brad’s head edited in or a lamb that sells homes, and the campaign was so successful that Brad eventually earned his own show on HGTV.

A New Level of #Hashtag Marketing

Agent Kenny Truong grabbed the attention of his market in Oakland with local ads that featured his “#fastagent” hashtag, and nothing else. People who saw the ads were inspired to look up the hashtag, connect with his brand through Twitter, and work with his business for their real estate needs.

Make a Fortune (Cookie) In Real Estate

Who doesn’t love a fortune cookie after a great meal at a local Chinese restaurant? Agent Wendy Cobrin capitalized on our love of fortune cookies by having custom cookies made, with her contact info and a real estate related fortune inside for some truly memorable marketing. To know more information on Real Estate Marketing check Ibin

Moving to Canada? We Can Sell Your Home

Election season brings the opportunity for some real estate related humor, and agent Jeff Cook decided to try a bi-partisan marketing campaign for people who plan to “move to Canada” if their preferred candidate doesn’t win. The campaign caught the eye of major news websites and gave a huge boost to Cook’s online advertising presence.

The right marketing team can help you grow your real estate business with unique, timely tactics, and we’d love to help you take your brand to the next level. Contact Realty DS Media Group to learn more about all of our real estate marketing services.

Datsun redi GO Review & First Drive

Datsun Redi Go Test Drive in Ahmedabad

Datsun redi GO Overview

Datsun Redi-GO 2016 launched in India at a starting price of Rs. 2.38 lakh, making it a part of the entry-level hatchback segment and one of the most affordable cars in India. There are total five Datsun Redi-GO variants and the Datsun Redi-GO price in India tops at Rs. 3.34 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom, New Delhi.) Under the hood, the ‘urban crossover’ has only one option, which is an 800 cc engine that uses the iSAT technology.

The platform of the new Datsun Redi-GO is same as the Kwid but the latter is slightly longer. The Redi-GO has a length of 3,429 mm, width of 1,560 mm and a height of 1,541 mm. The ground clearance of the small hatch is the best in class at 185 mm. The car is in direct competition with Maruti Suzuki Alto 800, Hyundai Eon, Renault Kwid, etc. Therefore, it isn’t going to be easy, but will Datsun Redi-GO make it? Time will tell…

Datsun redi GO Exteriors & Style

In terms of appearance, the designers have spent a considerable amount of time in making a clearly distinct product from the sibling Kwid. The car features a funky styling which is hardly seen in cars of its class. In fact, the company has strived hard to make it look as much as a concept car, which definitely goes into its favor. The headlights of the car are a nice workup with hexagonal grille on which the Datsun badge takes the center stage. The car also boasts of segment-first LED DRLs located below the skid plate. The 1.0L badge at the back is the only way of distinguishing the more powerful version from that of 800cc one.

What’s more appealing at the outside is the sharp cut that flows from front doors and all the way to the taillights. The rear portion poses quite a radical appearance with the taillights seems to have been taken inspiration from SUVs such as Volvo XC60 and Honda CR-V. There is also a big skid plate at the back and chrome garnish on the bootlid. The car has an excellent ground clearance of 185mm which sets it on the top of its class.

Datsun redi GO Interior & Space

It is on the inside, that the Redi Go doesn’t seem as appealing. The interiors are decent, however it is the colour that doesn’t make it look premium. The steering wheel is small and good enough. The instrument cluster is shared with the other Datsuns. This has a speedometer that occupies most of the space. The centre console is made up of a large single AC vent, music system, three knobs for the air-con. There is some storage space in the vehicle. To begin with, there is space above the glove box, under the air-con knobs and even the door pockets are large enough. This has been designed to be practical. In terms of safety, the Redi GO gets a single airbag and even seat bels for all passengers.

The front row seats offer good enough space. Now, the other important aspect of the Redi GO is the tall boy looks. This ensures good head room for both the rows. The second row too has decent knee room and even good head room also. The rear seats lack adjustable head rests too. The boot isn’t as large as the Kwid, but it is big enough. The wheelbase of the Redi Go is shorter than the Kwid to make it more compact. In terms of features, it even gets front power windows.

Datsun redi GO Engine & Gearbox

The Datsun Redi Go has a 800cc engine that produces about 53bhp of power and 72Nm of torque. This is good enough for daily driving. The hatchback has more than sufficient power to drive in the city. One doesn’t need to shift gears that often making it simpler to drive. On the highway, it has decent performance. The engine isn’t very noisy and it has decent NVH levels. This hatchback has good enough power and more than sufficient to cruise on the highway at 90 km/hr. The power delivery is linear and the refinement of the engine is good. The insulation on the Redi Go is better than the Go and Go+. For more information on Datsun Redi Go check Pasear-w

Datsun Redi-GO mileage is claimed to be 25.17 kmpl. However, how the car actually performs is something that we will have to watch out for. The competing Alto 800 delivers around 18 kmpl in the city and 20 kmpl on highway, whereas Renault Kwid offers 25 kmpl. The claimed mileage of the new Datsun Redi-GO is quite impressive but what it offers in day-to-day driving is what will ultimately matter.

Datsun redi GO Driving Dynamics

Well, the first thing you notice when you are on the seat is that you sit pretty high. Almost SUV like. This is a good thing as it give a commanding view of the road and also improves all round visibility. The suspension setup is better than most cars in the segment. It handles bad roads pretty well. We found the ride to be a bit stiff. This could be to balance the additional ground clearance in the car which is best-in-class at 185mm. We were surprised with the way the RediGO went about on large speed breakers. Clearly, this is a shot in the arm for this car.

Datsun redi GO Safety & Security

With the lack of ABS, the overall braking is still consistent with easy modulation. Like the other budget cars, the brakes suit only the class of easy-driving people. The car does get driver side airbag, central locking system, engine immobilizer, front seat belts with pre-tensioners and child safety locks in the safety department.

Datsun redi GO Price in Hyderabad

Datsun Redi GO On Road Price is 3,10,561/- and Ex-showroom Price is 2,58,300/- in Hyderabad. Datsun Redi GO comes in 8 colours, namely Red Sport,Lime,White,Grey,Grey Gold,Ruby,Silver,Silver Gold. Datsun Redi GO comes with FWD with 799 CC Displacement and 3 Cylinders with Maximum Power 53 bhp@5678 rpm and Peak Torque 72 Nm@4386 rpm DRIVE TRAIN FWD and reaches 100 KMPH at N/A . Datsun Redi GO comes with Manual Transmission with FWD . Check car loan for Datsun Redi GO.

Datsun redi GO Verdict

We think that 2016 Datsun Redi-GO has the potential to challenge the competitors but the maintenance costs can pose a challenge. The car looks smart and different with its “tall boy” design, and is comfortable on the inside in the front seats. Let’s keep an eye on how far this takes the Datsun Redi-GO.

Available in five trims, the price of Datsun Redi GO starts from Rs. 2.49 lakhs for the basic D variant while the top end S model with AMT transmission can be purchased at the price tag of Rs. 3.96 lakhs. All prices are ex-showroom, New Delhi. Redi GO has certainly tightened the competition in the group where Renault Kwid, Maruti Alto 800, Maruti Alto K10 and Hyundai Eon are already luring the budget conscious car buyers of India.

Proposed Changes To The H-1B Visa Fees Under Trump

UT Evaluators

President Trump signed an executive order into effect in April of 2017 called the Buy American and Hire American order. This called for the USCIS and the Department of

Homeland Security to take measures to refine the H-1B process so that it aligns more with the administration’s goals of ensuring that more highly-skilled and highly-paid immigrants are able to obtain the visa. For H1B Visa Process Visit UT Evaluators

One such change involves the annual lottery and will likely go into effect next year. As of now, the USCIS is in the process of testing an online registration system that will effectively replace the petitions in the lottery.

Rather than handle petitions for the lottery, employers will register their alien beneficiaries with the USCIS a few weeks before April 1st, the start of the lottery window.

The lottery will be conducted with these registrations rather than petitions, so employers will not need to file the I-29 packet unless their beneficiary’s registration is selected. If that happens, then employers need to file their petitions within the filing window starting on April 1st.

According to the USCIS this will serve to avoid them having to sift through tens or even hundreds of thousands of petitions. It also will serve to avoid having employers file fees and having to subsequently return the fees of those that were not selected.

This does not technically save the employer any money (since the entire fee would be returned to them), but it is worth noting that employers and beneficiaries are not responsible for H-1B filing fees unless their registration is selected in the lottery.

The USCIS has announced that it is still in the testing phase of this pre-registration system and therefore it will be suspended for the 2020 H-1B season. However, we can expect it to be implemented next year.

Another big change is that the master’s cap will now be conducted after the regular cap. Therefore, all of the cap-subject petitions will be entered into the regular cap of 65,000 first. For more information on  H1B Visa  check Kotra

After that, all unselected petitions with advanced degree designations will be entered into the master’s cap. This is expected to increase the chances of getting selected in the master’s cap significantly.

The master’s cap order reversal will go into effect this H-1B 2020 filing season.

Lastly, the president has also released a statement indicating that he plans to create a potential pathway for H-1B holders to obtain citizenship. While there is currently no direct path to citizenship from any nonimmigrant visa, this change, if implemented, would make the H-1B much more appealing to those looking to become U.S. citizens.

Social Media Productivity Tips For Super Smart Marketers

SEO New York

Running a social media campaign is not an easy task. The updates that need to be sent out should be carefully planned and worded as not to cause any offence or be laughed at. At times, maintaining just one platform can become too overwhelming.

But marketing through social media shouldn’t have to be time consuming and stressful. For more details Visit SEO Company London.

To help you out, here are some productivity tips:

1: CONCENTRATE ON PLATFORMS THAT PRODUCE THE HIGHEST ROI

As much as you want to be an ALL the available social media platforms, let’s face it, you only need about one or two, maybe even three. Don’t burden yourself with too many accounts to manage, especially when some of them aren’t giving you anything in return. So take a good look at which platforms produce the highest ROI and stick with those.

2: MAKE USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT TOOLS

When you post multiple times in a single day, it helps not just your brand, but also your audience. We live in different time zones and you don’t want anyone to miss out on updates that might be useful for them. Visit a branded page and you will see that some of them do post their content more than once in a single day.

But this doesn’t mean that you have to log into Twitter or Facebook at every hour just to send out an update. There are schedulers such as Hootsuite and Buffer that can do that for you. For Best web design agency in UK visit RavisNY.

3: REPURPOSE OLD POSTS

A social media post that got lots of engagement shouldn’t be left as is. Why not share it again? But this time, don’t use the same text for your update. Instead, come up with a completely different one. For example, you can post the update as a question this time or use a snippet of some text.

A couple of brands do this. For instance, late night talk shows that live tweet during an episode will share the content they tweeted then the morning after. This time, the text they share will be different. This is so those who have missed the show or have just woken up can catch up with what went on.

4: DEVELOP A SYSTEM FOR CURATING AND SCHEDULING CONTENT

Not knowing what to share can take hours, hours which can be spent doing tasks more productive than thinking of what to tweet. So instead of wasting time, why not collect content you want to share along with your own content you want to share then decide on a schedule for them to be sent out.

For example, curate all the content you need for tomorrow or for the week. Before the end of the day, start plugging in the content to be shared into Buffer or any other scheduler. This way, more focus can be put on profit-making activities.

Businesses need social media these days. With the world becoming more digital, businesses need to embrace the power of the internet more. For more information on SEO Services check Kotra

Yes, traditional marketing forms still work, especially in combination with digital trends, but a lot of people spend time online these days and running an effective and smooth campaign is key to getting noticed and engaged with your audience.

Jaguar XE Hatchback First Drive Review

Icps2016

Jaguar XE Overview

Jaguar XE is a premium compact sports sedan from the stable of Jaguar that comes with an elegant but powerful look. It has a sturdy build and is equally at ease in city roads as well as in uneven off track drive. The Jaguar XE images that the company released during Auto Expo 2016 shows an amazing designed car with commanding presence and style. It falls in the above 4-meter category and has remarkable features that give it an edge over its rivals in the market that are within this price bracket.

Jaguar XE is available in two different trims; one of them is called the Jaguar XE and the other is called Jaguar XE 2.0L Petrol Pure2.0L Petrol Portfolio. This well-built sedan has a big 2835mm of wheelbase that allows it to seat around 4 passengers comfortably. The design of this SUV looks masculine and the comfort level of this car is on par with other such vehicles in this price category. Check for HDFC car loan at Fincarz.

Jaguar XE Design & Look

At the glimpse of the XE, the first impression we get is of the new XJ. The honeycomb mesh grille comes with the red growling cat and sharp headlamps. The fascia of the XE holds some similarity in design to the other Jags. The headlamp LED layout is new and this is carried forward on the upcoming Jags. Design by Ian Callum and his team, the XE has perfect sculpted proportions, with a long bonnet and the boot size is in proportion with the sloping roofline. The rear haunch is muscular indicating that the power is delivered through the rear wheels. The side profile is typical Jag, and the design DNA is carried forward. The rear styling is identical to other Jags and the tail lamp design has been inspired from the legendary E-Type. The XE comes with 17-inch tyres, our press demonstrator had Pirelli.

The XE has been built on the new iQ [Al] platform. This is an all aluminium platform and Al stands for Aluminium. This will be used to make the new XF, XJ and even the F-PACE. The new-gen vehicles are lighter due to the use of aluminium. This gives XE an advantage in its segment.

Jaguar XE Cabin & Co,fort

The cabin of the XE diesel is very much like its exterior, understated. The dashboard is neatly laid-out but is quite a mixed-bag of premium as well as not so premium materials. For instance, some buttons have the click sound which just robs away the premium quotient. That said, the air-con controls are neatly laid-out below the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Overall the cabin is a nice place to be in and comes loaded with features. In this Prestige trim, you get leather upholstery, interior mood lighting, Meridian Sound system, cruise control and speed limiter, dark satin brushed aluminium inlays and power folding and auto-dimming heated door mirrors with memory function.

The front and rear seats offer good support and comfort but the headroom is a little tight owing to the sloping roofline. Anyone below 5’10” should be comfortable in the rear seat. However, due to the tall transmission tunnel and protruding rear AC vents, the third passenger would feel he/she was uninvited. The 455-litres boot is as practical as it can get. Unlike the Mercedes C-Class and the BMW 3-Series, the XE’s boot is flat and wide and moreover, the space saver tyre is neatly tucked away under the floor.

Jaguar XE Engine & Transmission

We’ve experienced this Ingenium diesel on a Jag before on the XF, but the punchy nature of the engine is more in keeping with the XE’s sporty pretensions. The engine feels quicker than its 9-second 0-100kph time would suggest and kickdown acceleration is good too, though its rivals are faster still. The engine bunches up its power for release at 2000rpm and till 4000rpm, progress is strong. You can rev on and even hold gear at the 4900rpm limiter in manual mode but the eight-speed gearbox does such a nice job of things on its own, you’ll be happy to let it do its thing.

In Dynamic drive mode, the gearbox gets the best out of the engine by selecting the ratio that keeps revs near the 2000rpm mark. Resultantly, there’s no delay in the build of power and the XE just lunges forward as and when you need it to. The XE also adapts well to a relaxed driving style. The gearbox keeps engine revs and noise levels low. It’s just that the engine isn’t as quiet as it ought to be. Throttle inputs are usually accompanied by a grumble from the engine and there’s a drone in the mid-range too. You just won’t get the same sense of calm in the cabin as you would in the beautifully insulated A4 35TDI, though a BMW 320d is noisier still.

It’s actually the 320d that the XE 20d can be best clubbed together. Both cars are designed to put the driver at the heart of the action. And like its petrol siblings, the XE diesel succeeds in this quest, and how. The steering is straight up incredible and there is a very natural balance in the chassis that makes the XE a joy to drive on curvy roads. Yup, we can’t wait to bring it head-to-head with a Bimmer either. Ride quality, again like the petrols, is really good too. There is a great balance between body movement arresting firmness and ride-enhancing suppleness in the suspension setup, and only on occasion will the XE thud and thump on our roads.

Jaguar XE Driving Dynamics

The ride of the XE is smooth. It has been tuned for better handling, but for India it has tweaked for better ride also. Drive on broken tarmac or even at high speeds. It irons out most of the road shocks for front and rear passengers making it extremely comfortable for the occupants. The handling of the XE is just fantastic. What makes it even better is the steering feedback. The steering wheel weighs up as speed increases. Most of the sedans in this segment now have electronic steering wheel that is extremely light and kills the joy for those who enjoy driving.

Jaguar XE Braking & Safety

While the after sales network isn’t as great as its German rivals, the Tata-owned brand is steadily expanding and is committed to giving peace of mind to its customers. In terms of safety features, the XE Diesel gets multiple airbags, Surround Camera System (offered in the top-end Portfolio trim only), Start/Stop System, Torque Vectoring, Dynamic Stability Control with Traction Control, ISOFIX child seat mounts, Hill Launch Assist and Jaguar Smart Key System (keyless entry, offered in the top-end Portfolio trim only).

Jaguar XE Cost in Ahmedabad

Jaguar Xe On-Road Price in Ahmedabad ranges from 45,30,494 to 52,38,716 for variants XE Pure and XE Portfolio Diesel respectively. Jaguar Xe is available in 6 variants and 7 colours. Below are details of Jaguar Xe variants price in Ahmedabad. Check for XE price in Ahmedabad at Tryaldrive.

Jaguar XE Round Up

If you are interested in an XE diesel, you’ll be best off extending your budget and splurging on the Portfolio trim, which at Rs 43.21 lakh (ex-showroom, India), costs about the same as top-spec rival sedans. But, and this is important, if you are willing to do so, why not just go for the 2.0-litre turbo-petrol-powered XE 25t Portfolio that actually costs about Rs 1 lakh less. It will be more expensive to run than the diesel but a sporty sedan like the XE needs a fitting engine. And in our books, the 25t’s 240hp petrol is it. For price details on Jaguar Xe check AutoZhop.

Proposed Changes To The H-1B Visa Fees Under Trump

H1B Visa

President Trump signed an executive order into effect in April of 2017 called the Buy American and Hire American order. This called for the USCIS and the Department of Homeland Security to take measures to refine the H-1B process so that it aligns more with the administration’s goals of ensuring that more highly-skilled and highly-paid immigrants are able to obtain the visa.

One such change involves the annual lottery and will likely go into effect next year. As of now, the USCIS is in the process of testing an online registration system that will effectively replace the petitions in the lottery. Check for H1B Visa Process in UT Evaluators

Rather than handle petitions for the lottery, employers will register their alien beneficiaries with the USCIS a few weeks before April 1st, the start of the lottery window.

The lottery will be conducted with these registrations rather than petitions, so employers will not need to file the I-29 packet unless their beneficiary’s registration is selected. If that happens, then employers need to file their petitions within the filing window starting on April 1st.

According to the USCIS this will serve to avoid them having to sift through tens or even hundreds of thousands of petitions. It also will serve to avoid having employers file fees and having to subsequently return the fees of those that were not selected.

This does not technically save the employer any money (since the entire fee would be returned to them), but it is worth noting that employers and beneficiaries are not responsible for H-1B filing fees unless their registration is selected in the lottery.

The USCIS has announced that it is still in the testing phase of this pre-registration system and therefore it will be suspended for the 2020 H-1B season. However, we can expect it to be implemented next year.

Another big change is that the master’s cap will now be conducted after the regular cap. Therefore, all of the cap-subject petitions will be entered into the regular cap of 65,000 first. After that, all unselected petitions with advanced degree designations will be entered into the master’s cap.

This is expected to increase the chances of getting selected in the master’s cap significantly.

The master’s cap order reversal will go into effect this H-1B 2020 filing season. To know more information on H1B Visa  check Orhdc

Lastly, the president has also released a statement indicating that he plans to create a potential pathway for H-1B holders to obtain citizenship.

While there is currently no direct path to citizenship from any nonimmigrant visa, this change, if implemented, would make the H-1B much more appealing to those looking to become U.S. citizens.
