The all-wheel-drive mode switch is not mentioned in the Nissan’s press materials. The earlier cars had the switch on the left had a Snow mode, but now it reads Save. This kind of led us to think that you can set up a custom all-wheel-drive program and save it.

Then there the enlarged exhaust pipes which have also helped increase power. As in the previous model year, paddle shifters on the steering wheel column let you shift the dual-clutch transmission.

Maruti Swift Has Once Again Showed Its Class

Image result for maruti swift

Maruti Suzuki Swift has once again showed its class with 1, 08,000 units of the new Swift already being booked. This is highest pre sales booking figure for any car in India till date.

The company in spite of internal turmoil at the Manesar plant has taken stock of situation with a capacity of over 700 cars a day, as a combined capacity of its two plants. However, the efforts do seem to do very little for the long waiting period of about five months for the petrol version.

Maruti Swift, the new version might fool you as if there is nothing different but wait till you see the inside. The new version has some radical changes in the interiors, instrument console and also has a small yet very critical additional space at the back seat. The space at the rear seat is a result of competition and Suzuki has done well to increase the rear seat space which has been done at the cost of cargo space in the hatch.

One problem though might still bother you at least in the Indian version is that the flood lights still have a lot left to be desired in terms of the quality. The Maruti Swift should have had the headlights with the new technologies available. The low quality lights do require a bit of eye straining especially while driving during the night. However other safety aspects seem to have moved a notch higher. It has all the basic safety systems from gen next airbags to braking circuits and lots of small tweaks to ensure that your driving is not only smooth but also safe.

All said and done the new Swift does live up to its old reputation and the proof of this is the already record bookings of up to 100000. Surely Maruti still knows the Indian consumer well then anybody and has kept all the main ingredients of a successful car intact for the new Swift as well. This is really commendable in spite of a number of competitors namely Hyundai i10, Hyundai i20, Ford Figo, Volkswagen Polo and Nissan Micra.

Honda Amaze Sedan Review Price and Specifications

Image result for honda amaze
Honda Amaze alias Honda Brio Sedan is expected to be launched in 2013 – 2014. The most excited part about the launch of the Amaze is the 1.5 litre of i-DTEC diesel engine. Unlike the Fiat derived Multijet engines, the Honda i-DTEC mill has a linear power and torque delivery. We don’t see much difference in the interior layout of the Honda Amaze and the Brio. It is one flowingly elegant design which makes style standout in a most elegant manner.

Image result for honda amaze

It will be the same dark brown dashboard with a protruding 2DIN music system. The Amaze will first be launched in Thailand on Friday. The Amaze is basically the Brio hatchback with a boot, just as the Swift & Dzire, Vista & Manza and Polo & Vento.

Image result for honda amaze

The 1.5-litre diesel engine will deliver a deadly combo of great mileage and be high on power as well. From the teaser images, it is clear that Honda seems to have been inspired from the add-on boot formula ripped off from the Tata Indigo Manza eCS and the Maruti Swift Dzire.

This means Honda will look to remove the only chink in its armor, the lack of diesel engines. For a country where diesel cars are a rage and given the sky-high prices of petrol, this move from the Japanese car manufacturer will help boost its sales manifold. While the boot won’t be very large, expect it to be in the region of 300-350 litres.

The Honda Brio sedan specifications stands at 3,990mm overall length and 2,407mm wheelbase, which puts this car longer by 380mm and 62mm compared with the hatchback edition. The 1,680mm width and 1,485mm height are the same as the previous edition though. Expect the manual gearbox petrol version of the Brio sedan to be priced between Rs 5 and Rs 6.5 lakh.

Rest of the interiors will remain more or less the same as the Brio hatchback, although Honda might just play around a bit with the colors to distinguish both the cars. Naturally Honda has tweaked the suspension of the vehicle to take the additional weight and one can expect the Brio sedan to offer a good balance of ride and handling.

Hyundai Elantra Diesel Review Price and Specifications

Image result for hyundai elantra
Hyundai Elantra Diesel at Rs 15.85 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) with a diesel engine and an automatic transmission is the most expensive variant of the Elantra. However it also lives upto this high price tag with arguably some of the best features.

Image result for hyundai elantra engine

The new diesel engine delivers 126bhp with a 1.6-litre turbo-diesel ripped off from the Hyundai Verna. The six-speed, torque-converter automatic gearbox comes off quite well in terms of the performance and torque. If you are not in a hurry, you can really see that the gearbox works well enough to keep you in the right gear at all speeds. The Elantra is quite peppy and even the half presses on the throttle gives you that adrenaline rush. However beware of the slight hesitation from either the engine or gearbox in stop-start traffic and a bit of power crisis on the highway.

Image result for hyundai elantra interior
However once you hit the throttle down, you come to know that all is not well with this diesel power train. The power delivery is not all that smooth and the engine starts to rattle at 2000rpm. The gearbox stutters to this sudden outburst of power and does not respond the way you want it to. Compared to the dual-clutch gearboxes of the Volkswagen Jetta and Skoda Laura this comes as a bit of a cropper.

However as a huge relief, you can the shift gears manually in tiptronic mode for better control, but you have to manage without the paddle shifters. With a slow mark of 10.92 seconds to hit the 0-100kph time it is a full 1.2 seconds off the Skoda Laura automatic.

Overall, the Hyundai Elantra is good for those who want to enjoy their rides. Not to forget the overly-assisted power steering, well-finished cabin and rear seats. Good to drive in traffic, fairly fuel efficient with 11.2kpl in the city, and packed with features, this version of the Elantra meets the needs of most self-driven executive car buyers. If you are not in awe of the Elantra you can also consider the likes of Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla Altis.

Makkhi Alias Eega Movie Review

Image result for eegaImage result for eega

Makkhi alias Eega has started its buzz around the globe from 6th July 2012. The buzz is now shaking the bollywood box office; the most awaited Makkhi alias eega is now making its sound all around the country. The movie is all about unexpressed Love, Untamed Lust, Murderous Jealousy, Rebirth and Revenge. The film has also dubbed into Malayalam as Eecha and now into Hindi as Makkhi.

The movie begins with a simple love story between Samantha and Nani, where Rajamouli has started with the flavors of fun and comic. Everything goes same like any other love story until the entry of Sudeep(Villain)who creates the obstacle in the movie. Sudeep who is well known as Kiccha has played a negative role for the first time in a Telugu movie.

In the movie, Sudeep is a big business magnet who has lust on Samantha (Bindu). Samantha is a micro metal maker and she runs an aided children orphanage. Once she meets Sudeep to get donation for her orphanage Sudeep gets attracted to her and starts to make love with her but he does not know that she is in love with Nani. Sudeep thinks if he murders Nani, his love track will be clear and so he murders Nani.

But the unexpected twist and the Makkhi alias Eega(Fly)Buzz starts from here. Nani takes rebirth as Makkhi alias Eega(Fly) and takes revenge on Sudeep. The way Makkhi alias Eega(fly)gives hints to Sudeep and Samatha, that it is actually Nani is the most exciting part in the movie. Viewers will stick to their chairs in the theatre with excitement.

S.S.Rajamouli has once again proved that he is the best director in the tollywood. After giving hits like Maghadeera, people started thinking will he be able to give a better movie than Maghadeera? If you have the same question in your mind then Makkhi alias Eega is the best answer for it. M.M.Keeravaani has given an average music, the costumes used in the movies shows the efforts of Rama Rajamouli. Makuta VFX Team has given their best on graphics and technical aspects.

We generally think how an Makkhi alias Eega(Fly) can harm a people. But after watching the movie, you will withdraw your statement making you to believe that an Makkhi a.k.a Eega(Fly) can also take revenge. Only Rajamouli could have handled it, and he has handled it brilliantly. For Sudeep, Makkhi a.k.a Eega is the best movie in his career; he acted with just the imagination of a bug in front of him which is the most difficult part in acting.

Overall you will not have guilt of wasting your money. Watch and enjoy.
