Nissan Evalia Vs Toyota Innova VS Maruti Ertiga

Maruti has completely redesigned the interiors of the new Alto. There are two interior colours to choose from; brown or grey. Our test car wore the latter. With either interior colour, you'll get a black steering, center console, gear lever and seat / door fabric. This helps break the monotony of a single colour on the inside. While on the topic, I must add that the black carpets are extremely practical and will be easy to keep clean.Nissan cars, Nissan Evalia, Nissan Evalia price, Toyota cars, Toyota Innova, Maruti cars, Maruti Ertiga.
Nissan Evalia

The new dashboard looks more contemporary and is functional too. The centre console and dome-shaped A/C vents help inject some freshness into this car's interiors. Yet, the interiors simply don't match the pizazz of the Hyundai Eon. As one would expect of an economy car, the plastics are economy grade, with the door armrests and map pockets feeling particularly cheap. The accelerator pedal doesn't even get a rubber cover! On the other hand, the steering wheel and switchgear have acceptable levels of quality. Silver accents do bring a little upmarket feel, while the A, B & C Pillars get plastic trim (no exposed metal here). The air-conditioner controls are identical to the older Alto, and the front power window switches are now placed in the center (just below the gear lever). Even though most interior parts are new, you'll notice a couple of bits & pieces from the old Alto. For a car of its price, the interior feels well-screwed together. There aren't obvious rough edges or loosely fitted components. Driver visibility is good all around. The non cab-forward design means that the A-Pillars don't block frontal view. Lateral vision is satisfactory and the low rear seat means rearward visibility isn't bad either.
Toyota Innova

The Alto's seats are placed on the lower side. Egress isn't as easy as with other tallboy hatchbacks. Since the wheelbase & seat anchorage points are the same, there is no major change to the legroom. Headroom, however, has increased by 15 mm due to the taller roof. The limited width means that front seat occupants sit very close to each other and easily intrude into each other's space. Maruti has kept the door panels flat so as to maximise the interior width, but this is still an extremely narrow car. The upholstery is economy grade, yet it feels appropriate for a car of this price point. On the top Lxi variant, the door pads get fabric inserts. The front seats have a longer fore & aft travel range, releasing a good amount of leg space for front passengers. Even a 6' 2" tall driver like me had no problem fitting into the driver's seat. You can push the front seat all the way back only when the rear bench isn't occupied though. The small sized front seats are basic and nearly flat, with no contours or bolstering to speak of. Don't expect much support from them. Back support is very rudimentary...you can expect long journeys to be a tiring experience. The front seat's headrests have been combined into the seat back, just like in the Nano and Eon. No, they aren't a comfortable spot to rest your head on.
Toyota Innova

The 3-spoke airbag-equipped steering wheel is nice to hold. The horn pad stretches out wide enough and is effortless to access. Just like the old Alto, the steering wheel is placed on the lower side. Personally, I love low steering wheels, though there will be folk who may not like it this way. The steering is in a fixed position and doesn't have tilt adjustment (the Hyundai Eon does). Overall ergonomics are satisfactory and most controls are placed right where you'd expect them to be. The A-B-C pedals are comfortable and the gear shifter falls right into your hand. The power window switches positioned just below the gear lever will take some getting used to. The only analogue part of the instrument console is the speedometer. The fuel gauge is digital and right below it are the twin trip meters & odometer. The readouts are reasonably sized and thus, the digital data is easy to read. No temperature gauge, although you do get a warning light for an overheating engine. A cigarette lighter / 12v power socket is placed to the left of the steering rack. The driver side ORVM is manually adjustable from the inside. Shockingly, even the top-end LXi doesn't get an ORVM on the passenger side of the car. It's an optional add-on.
Maruti Ertiga

The slim front seats have scooped-in backs to release 15 mm more knee room for rear passengers. Still, the Alto's rear bench has very limited space. Fact is, the cheaper Tata Nano's rear seat has significantly more space & comfort. If you sit behind a tall front passenger, things will get terribly cramped. Legroom is only slightly improved over the ol' Alto, and the limited width means this car is a 4 seater at best. Also, the floor hump is of prominent height. The rear bench has a short seat-back that won't offer the required support to taller passengers. The rear headrests can only be used by smaller passengers or kids. Just like at the front, rear headroom has noticeably improved. On the other hand, the rear windows are smaller than in the outgoing car and don't let as much light into the back area. The Alto 800 is equipped with a strong air-conditioner that cools the cabin sufficiently well. The A/C system is a full HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) unit. The center air-vents have no volume control but the circular vents on either side of the dashboard can be completely closed. No variant of the Alto comes with a music system from the factory. There is a single DIN slot to fit in an after-market stereo (as the one our test car was equipped with). The front doors have dedicated spots to install speakers.
Maruti Ertiga

In terms of storage, you'll find a rectangular cut-out above the glove box. This is a handy spot to store the odd items, as is the smaller cut-out below the hazard light switch. There is a medium size compartment right ahead of the gear lever which can hold a 1-liter water bottle (lying flat). You could place your mobile phone here; the area has dedicated coin holders too. To the right of the driver is another cubby hole on the dashboard. Only the driver's door gets a small map pocket. The glovebox is adequately wide & deep. However, the quality of construction is poor. Our test car's glovebox refused to close at times! The 177 liter boot is similar in size to the outgoing car and is par for the course in this segment. The rear seat can be folded down for more luggage, albeit there is no 60:40 split facility. Our test car was kitted with an el cheapo parcel tray that appears to have been built to serious cost targets.

2014 Volvo XC60 A Compact SUV from Volvo

Volvo most popular crossover, the XC60 will be rendered with a mid-life facelift in the year 2014 and will come along with upgraded front fascia and rear styling and with a refreshed interior. The camouflaged new vehicle has been recently spied undergoing winter testing and it feels like that the crossover will be titivated with similar upgrades as its sedan sibling. If one removes the camoflauge at the front end and you no doubt get a revised fascia with a new front bumper and single-piece headlights as per the facelifted S60. Other changes that Volvo XC60 features include a revised instrument cluster and larger infotainment system display, while at the rear Volvo is expected to add new exhaust tips and a chrome strip on the tailgate. With the new features rendered Volvo XC60 price is going to go up by a few notches.
Volvo XC60
The Volvo XC60 pictures carries design cues from the manufacturer that makes anybody realise that it is a swedish vehicle. The grille diagonal chrome strip along with the strong shoulder line and the extremely pleasant XC90-like tail-lights, now with LEDs, are a sure Volvo Cars giveaway. But Volvo has done away with the safe lines and boxy stand-up proportions and brought in an entirely new stance. The design is tipped forward, the detailing of the chin is very aggressive and the skinning of the car is tightly stretched and muscular. The car looks stunning in the flesh, even better than in pictures, and it’s pretty individualistic too. The XC60 gets smoked-out rear windows, a rub strip around the bottom and luscious big alloys that give it a well-planted stance.
Volvo XC60
Under the skin, this Volvo shares mechanical bits with the Land Rover Freelander, both using the P24 platform developed for Ford’s now- defunct Premier Automotive Group. As expected, a super-stiff chassis and independent suspension take care of dynamics and, as ever, this car has more autonomous and intelligent safety systems than a nuclear submarine. Even Volvo, ever bashful, says this is its safest car ever. And the great thing is that the safety features are all available in India. Even though this car is a crossover, more high estate than SUV, Volvo will position the XC60 as a compact SUV, placing it next to the Q5 and the X3. But that seems absolutely fine because the XC60 can play the SUV well too. Ground clearance is an impressive 230mm, there is an on-demand four-wheel-drive system from Haldex and you get a hill descent system that, in addition that works in reverse too.

Hyundai Cars price to rise by 20,000 w.e.f February 2013

This Diwali season was all fun and frolic with the auto majors offering discounts and luring buyers in their directions and competing against each other in order to clock in more sales and generate more revenue. The festive season gone with the end of the year pomp and show and now the major auto players are all ready to open up their claws and show their true nature at the very start of the year 2013. Apparently auto majors had to take this step now which they refrained from taking amidst the fun and frolic of festive season and year ending in which the auto majors gain in major amount of sales and hiking the car prices would have resulted in discouraging the potential buyers.
Hyundai Eon
The manufacturers have opted for this price hike in order to counter attack the high rising manufacturing cost which the auto players are not able to sustain and have decided to pass it on to their consumers. Indian automobile market players like Maruti Suzuki India, Hyundai and General Motors have all said that they will hike the prices of their respective models by upto Rs.20,000. Along with Maruti other Auto majors like Hyundai and General Motors are also going to hike their prices across their model line up to break even with the higher manufacturing costs.
Hyundai Santro Xing
Hyundai, India’s second largest auto major is going to hike prices upto Rs.20,000 across the range and the price hike is likely to happen at the end of January as this South Korean auto major cannot also take the pressure of margins as the manufacturing cost has rose with the rise in supply material along with the currency fluctuations that has affected every manufacturer in town. The company has decided to hike prices across most popular Hyundai cars which includes  Hyundai Eon, Hyundai Santro Xing, Hyundai i10, Hyundai i20, Hyundai Accent, Hyundai Verna, Hyundai Elantra, Hyundai Sonata and Hyundai Santa Fe in India, with prices ranging from Rs 2.77 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) for the entry level Eon hatchback to Rs 25.43 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) for the top end Santa Fe SUV. The price hike is also going to happen across the complete Maruti Suzuki line up as per Maruti Suzuki India chief operating officer (marketing and sales) Mayank Pareek. As per him the price rise was necessary in lieu of the increase in  pressure in terms of margins and with the currency fluctuations the revenue graph is falling. Apparently in the month of December, the company had made clear to the consumers that it is going to hike the prices between 1% and 3%.

MSIL is planning to make Maruti Gypsy a success

India's most favorite off-roader Maruti Gypsy is all set to make another entry to the markets with brand new look. The Indian auto giant Maruti Suzuki India limited is now considering some measures to make this off-road king a huge success in Indian markets. This is something encouraging for most of the SUV freaks as the SUV is getting some upgrades from the company. At present there is no information regarding the Maruti Gypsy price or its specifications as yet. However, they might be revealed sooner than later for the Indian car enthusiasts.
Maruti Suzuki Gypsy
Gypsy is undeniably the most successful and most favorite SUV of all time in India and we can still see this vehicle on roads as its sales are still running. However, the demand is not as it used to be in the period of 90s. The company relished the success of Gypsy but failed to upgrade as time changed. This led to the decline in demand for the evergreen Gypsy. It is now an unfashionable and low performing vehicle compared to other vehicles. This vehicle has seen many of the SUVs and Off-roaders since int was launched in India in 1985. however only few vehicles from Tata and Mahindra have managed to taste success in the domestic markets. At present Mahindra is leading the SUV segment in domestic markets and MSIL lags behind.
Maruti Suzuki Gypsy
At present, it will be too early to say anything about the upcoming new Maruti Gypsy features or its technical upgrades as the company has just started to focus on this vehicle. This is a vehicle blessed with 4 cylindered, 1.3 liter petrol engine with a displacement capacity of just 1298cc. This is below average for an off-roader considering the technicalities of other SUVs in present markets. On the other hand, its appearance is not so trendy as we can see in the Maruti Gypsy pictures. However, we can expect that the Gypsy might undergo some of the major changes to its exteriors. On the other hand there are speculations regarding the launch of this vehicle in the domestic markets soon this year. However, there is no word from the company sources as yet. There is no doubt that if company is seriously considering its relaunch, then we can surely expect for major upgrades in this off-road king. This will automatically prove helpful for the company to boost Maruti cars sales in the domestic markets. On the whole, it will be interesting to watch over next few months as auto markets are about to get new models of SUVs as companies lined up to launch their new models to lure customers.

2014 Renault Duster will come with changes in exteriors and interiors

Renault Duster, the vehicle which was introduced in the year 2012 brought a storm in the Indian auto Industry compact SUV segment. Not only it changed the face and fate of the French auto major which was struggling prior to this in the Indian auto industry with just five Renault Cars in its portfolio was not able to create an image in the mind of Indian audience and was just another brand available in the market. With Duster, Renault received a massive response and amplified its position in the Indian auto market as well as the global market. Within months of introducing this vehicle in the Indian auto Industry, Renault is ready to roll out a 4X4 version of this vehicle and the images and details about the launch date has been updated on a Brazilian auto portal. The upgraded vehicle will make its entry into the global auto market at early 2014 and we are expecting a similar vehicle to launch in the Indian auto market as well. Renault Duster price for the 4X4 version is going to be tagged higher than the present variant available in the market.
Renault Duster
Renault Duster pictures on the interweb suggest that the facelifted version has taken its cue from Renault D Cross concept that was showcased at 2012 Sao Paulo Motor Show. The new version comes titivated with changes both on the exterior and interior level as well giving it a more modish and plush appearance. The changes on the exterior level includes a redesigned headlamp, refreshed front grille,front and rear bumper and likely a redesigned tail gate. The cabin area is rendered with a refreshed dashboard and features that offers you comfort. The extremely needed change in the dash was to shift the touch screen display for better access and we are expecting that to happen with the new version.
Renault Duster
Renault Duster features an automatic diesel variant which many market analyst are expecting is a bit dicey  and not expected to happen with the 2014 version. The 4WD version along with the 2014 facelift will definitely happen Renault to bag in more sales and way necessary for Duster to stronghold its position in the Indian market and with the coming in of Ford EcoSport, the French auto major needed to armor itself against the oncoming battle.Renault feels all set to face the competition and the outcome of this battle we will just have to wait and watch!

Upgraded Maruti Suzuki Wagon R launched at Rs. 3.58 lakh

Maruti Suzuki has rolled out the newfangled, facelifted edition of one of its star seller vehicle, the Wagon R hatch. The outer appearance and the cabin area have all gone anew and nor Maruti WagonR price is tagged at Rs.3.58 lakh for the base variant,Rs 3.88 lakh for the mid one and Rs 4.13 lakh for the high end version. The complete variant range has now gone up by 10,000 INR e than its predecessor. The increase in price can be overlooked with the fact that  Maruti has tweaked the engine a lit bit to make this tallboy hatch more fuel efficient and the the figure has gone up by a decent 8% figure  and the fuel efficiency value is now tagged at 20.51kmpl figure. This tall boy hatch from the stables of Maruti is one of the bestseller that Maruti Suzuki India has in its portfolio not only that the vehicle also features in the top five models rating of the Indian automobile market. Maruti this time has gone out to its customers to know what changes they would like to see in their favourite hatch and then incorporated them in Wagon R, apparently the Japanese company opted for a regular customer engagement programmes to know what the customers want. After All a happy customer base is what sells your vehicle.
Maruti Suzuki Wagon R
Maruti Suzuki Wagon R is amongst the most popular Maruti cars and success rate can be realised with the fact that the vehicle has sold about 11K units a month in the April-November 2012 time period with the total sales figure reaching about 88,000 figure. With the refreshed version Maruti Suzuki Wagon R is likely to grab more market share and clock in more sales that the previous version thereby amplifying and strong holding the brand’s position in the Indian auto market. The newfangled Maruti WagonR pictures are more alluring when you look at the feature line-up along with the changes made to the exterior and the interiors of the vehicle making the vehicle fall into the upmarket product category. The front fascia of the vehicle is changes altogether to bring on board the all new small grille that comes with single horizontal slat  and the standardized two slat grille seen on the previous version has been thrown out of the window.
Maruti Suzuki Wagon R
The air dams have also gone larger and the fog lamps have been located at a new place which has completely transformed the look and appeal of the front fascia of Maruti Wagon R. The look of the vehicle is more adult and has gone pretty similar to its sibling christened as Maruti Ertiga which was recently introduced in the Utility segment of the Indian car market. Once you slide into the vehicle and have a look around in the cabin area ones sees that Maruti WagonR features dual tone shade, the colors that are incorporated in this dual tone color pallete are black and beige.

In terms of fuel efficiency Maruti Alto 800 has the maximum fuel efficiency with 30Kmpl (with CNG fuel Option) and 22Kmpl (with petrol fuel option), which is really impressive. One who is concerned about the running cost must choose the Alto 800 as it give great mileage. However, Alto 800 falls behind Chevrolet Spark in terms of engine specifications and interior features.
Chevrolet Spark
Let us compare the engine specifications of both these cars. Chevrolet Spark is equipped with 1.0 liter engine that can produce 63Bhp of maximum power and 90.3Nm of maximum torque.
