Good times ahead for Maruti-Suzuki and Honda

T

he Nexa Experience gets stronger this month with the Ignis broadening the Maruti-Suzuki appeal in India. While the Ignis is quite a lifestyle statement with its funky styling and quirky interiors the base variants are quite bland. For Nexa to have long term viability, there has to be a clear differentiation between the cars sold through the standard retail outlets and Nexa. And one very easy and simple way to introduce that differentiation would be to have feature rich base variants and that is a trick that Maruti has missed this time around as well, as we discovered while driving the car in Chennai. Ever since the introduction of its thE maruti-suzuki diesel engine there has been no look- ignis is quitE a ing back for a company that began its lifEstylE statEmEnt India innings so promisingly with the runaway success of the first two generations of the City. However Honda Cars India was left floundering after facing severe disruptions to its supplier bases in Japan and Thailand because of natural calamities, but has made a remarkable recovery. It has even been able to ride over the lukewarm response to some of its products like the Mobilio by being quick on its feet and introducing the BR-V. And when the domination of the City was threatened, Honda not only restyled the City at a short notice and has now completely reworked both the exteriors and interiors for launch this month. Honda will also be relaunching the Civic after a gap of 5 years but before that it will add the Jazz-based SUV, the WR-V to its portfolio. I just hope that Honda’s new products are in tune with its premium image in the market that has slowly been eroded over the last few years. And finally this is a bike-rich issue with a global launch from Hero MotorCorp as well as first rides of a number of big bikes including the much awaited Dominar from Bajaj. The Pune-based company started a whole new cult with the Pulsar and the Dominar may well be the start of another! I am off to drive the new Mercedes-Benz E-class while colleagues are also scrambling out for driving and riding in what promises to be another very busy month. So see you next month and in the meantime drive and ride safe.

India at the Dakar

The Dakar Rally is one of the most gruelling challenges on the motorsport calendar. Over the years, enthusiasts from India cheered for many a competitor and for the triumph of human endurance and spirit. This time around we had a better reason as TVS and Hero MotoCorp represented India on this world stage. Kudos to the Indian companies and cheers especially to CS Santosh who has become the only Indian to finish the rally two years running. Needless to say, we are extremely proud of Aravind KP as well although he couldn’t finish due to an injury. Cheers to both teams.

update! Honda to strengthen India lineup

Honda is adding two cars to its India lineup - the WR-V compact crossover and the new-gen Civic, apart from refreshing the ever-popular City. Rahul Ghosh gives you all the information

WR-V

This is the compact crossover from Honda and it is based on the Jazz platform

J

apanese auto giant, Honda has a strong following in India. People tend to swear by the bullet proof reliability of these cars and in certain cases it has also become a status symbol. Honda too keeps busy by launching newer and refreshed versions of their cars and that in turn helps keep the excitement going. So as planned 2017 is going to be exciting for Honda. The first to come will be the refreshed City which will be followed up by the WR-V and then will come the brand new Civic. But let’s take one at a time starting with the City. The new City gets a mild cosmetic makeover starting with the front which now has a pronounced chrome grille. The headlamps are new and come with integrated day time running lights. The front bumper has been

12

auto today | February 2017

redone as well. At the back, the bumper is new and the tail lamps sport LEDs. Inside trim is new and the entertainment device has been upgraded and is now compatible with IOS and Android devices. Mechanically though, the City will remain the same. So the same 1.5litre duo of petrol and diesel engines will continue to serve this sedan. The next and perhaps the biggest from Honda this year will be the WR-V or the ‘Winsome Runabout Vehicle’. The WR-V is a compact crossover based on the Jazz platform which will take on certain variants of the Ford EcoSport and the Maruti-Suzuki Brezza apart from the Hyundai i20 Active and Toyota Etios Cross. However as you can

see, Honda designers have worked hard to ensure that the similarities with the Jazz are not all that evident. The WR-V comes with a new front end which has a high bonnet line and bulbous headlamps to give it that rugged look. There is a lot of chrome on the grille and a scuff plate adds to the appearance. In profile it is evident that the WR-V will offer considerably more clearance than the Jazz


Honda’s 2017 lineup

Civic The 10th generation Civic comes with a completely reworked chassis and design. It is an all new car to say the least

and the crossover design is completed by the plastic cladding all around. The tail lamps reminds one of the Jazz but the tail gate does a good job in differentiating the rear design. Roof rails add to the crossover aura. So overall, the new WR-V looks fresh. Inside though, the WR-V will borrow plenty of parts from the Jazz and this includes the dash. The instrument panel too will be carried over from the Jazz. The seats though will be offered with a new fabric and in two tone. Moving on to the mechanical bits, the WR-V will borrow the engine and transmission from the Jazz. So under the bonnet expect to see the tried and tested 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol and the phenomenally efficient 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel. The engines will also be in the same state of tune as in the Jazz. Finally we expect the WR-V to be priced from Rs 7-9 lakh ex-showroom, when it is launched in the first quarter of 2017. The third car to come from Honda this year will be the Civic. The company had launched the eighth generaÂŹtion version in India and it was something more like a game changer. However over the years, the Civic lost its shine and most importantly the lack of a diesel resulted in few takers and the company thereafter discontinued the same. Now the company has revealed the 10th generation version and we expect it to come to India. The new Civic comes with a rather radical design much like its predecessor. It gets a large chrome strip on the grille and that has now become a Honda design trait. The headlamps are now sharp and come with day time lights as well. The

the City will be launChed immediately, wR-V is expeCted by end of fiRst quaRteR 2017 and the CiViC will follow lateR rear end too has a raked roof line which makes it look extremely sporty. The arrow like tail lamp looks good too. The chassis too has been completely reworked and is much stiffer than before according to Honda. The interiors of the new Civic are brand new as well. The instrument panel is an all digital affair and the centre console houses the touch screen interface which op-erates most functions. Space too seems to be ample. Powering the Civic could be a retuned version of the 1.8-litre petrol engine and a diesel will be offered as well.

PSA Group to re-enter India after a 20-year gap

Escape the mundane with some cricket With an aim to add an element of excitement in the corporate world, Tata Motors has launched an inaugural cricket championship amongst different corporate houses.

The aim is also to enhance business relationship for Tata Motors with many corporate houses in offering special services for bulk, leasing and individual purchases.

alMost tWo decades back Peugeot, in alliance with Premier Automobiles, launched the Peugeot 309. Unfortunately that venture was not successful. Thereafter, the PSA Group tried setting up its very own facility in southern India but owing to financial woes, that project too was discontinued. However there is little to doubt that India is the place to be now if you are looking at volumes. So the PSA Group has taken another bold step to create its mark in India.

The nissan GT-R is on its way into the Limca Book of World Records. This was possible after it made an outline of India’s map in the ground spanning an area of 3 sq km on the dry bed of Sambhar Lake in Rajasthan. In their attempt, Nissan India carved out the largest ever outline of a country map, choosing Sambhar Lake as the location for

its level and dry lake bed surface, stunning vistas, and soil which is soft enough to leave a deep impression to be captured by camera drones high above. This feat was another way of displaying the GT-R’s responses that enabled the car to manoeuvre and trace the complex proportions of India’s landmass on the sandy surface. The car was piloted by professional rally driver Rahul Kanthraj and to ensure accuracy, the map was created by plotting the co-ordinates on a GPS device and multiple laps were done to approximate the actual map. The dimensions of the map were about 3km in length and 2.8km in width with a total outline periphery of 14.7km.

Alvis Car Company returns

50 years after Alvis Car Company’s demise, the British automobile manufacturer is set to make a comeback with their Continuation Model of automobiles and the order book has officially been opened. Unlike some marque revivals, The Alvis Car Company isn’t attaching their famous ‘Red Triangle’ badge to the front of a modern supercar but instead is recreating genuine speed machines from an earlier age. To mark the occasion, the company will also have a significant presence at the London Classic Car show this month. Among the Alvis cars at the capital’s premier classic car show will be a stunning 1966 Graber-bodied TF21, made in the company’s penultimate year, and the 4.3 drophead coupé with Lancefield coachwork from 1937. The cars are originals but Alvis is offering to hand-build facsimiles of both as part of a limited run of Continuation Models. Another original that will also be available as an Alvis Continuation Model, the Bertelli-bodied 4.3litre Sports Coupé from 1935 will be shown on the company’s display stand. There will also be a fourth Alvis, a unique Brooklands

racer known as the Powys-Lybbe Special after its original creator, amateur racer Antony Powys-Lybbe, will be a further another entrant at the show. Based on a 1931 Alvis 12/60

‘Beetleback’, it had been given a lighter and narrower body and ran at over 145kmph on the outer Brooklands circuit, sealing itself in the history book, as we know it.

Skoda gives us a sneak peek at the hottest Octavia ever Skoda will soon be premiering the most powerful Octavia model to date at the upcoming Geneva International Motor Show - the Octavia vRS 245. Delivering 15bhp more than the previous hottest Octavia, the car produces 245bhp and 370Nm of torque from the 2.0-litre TSI petrol unit. The responsibility of delivering all that power to the road can be put in the hands of either a 6-speed manual transmission or the 7-speed dualclutch automatic, a first for the Skoda Octavia line-up. Further performance upgrades include

the use of the optional adaptive Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC). The engine and chassis technology are both integrated to a limited-slip differential.

It will be entering as a contender in the C-segment with bigger dimensions, improved styling, full-sized five seats and a premium cabin design. Also new to the Countryman variants list will be MINI’s first ever plugin hybrid, the MINI Cooper SE Countryman ALL4. The new MINI Countryman is roughly 200mm longer than its predecessor and 30mm wider, while its wheelbase has been extended by 75mm. Other variants make use of a range of Mini TwinPower engines.

With the base petrol unit making 136bhp, it sprints from 0-100kmph in 9.6s and the S versions adds a turbocharger to boost power to 192bhp and is able to do the 0-100kmph sprint in 7.5 seconds. The diesels, meanwhile, make 150bhp in the Cooper D and 190bhp in the Cooper SD variant. Inside, customers get the option of customising their MINIs with many colours and trim options, along with standard equipment list which includes MINI satellite navigation, Bluetooth, cruise control, emergency E-call and Active Guard among others. Another option is a new 8.8-inch touchscreen display as part of the MINI Navigation System XL. The

new MINI Countryman is available with both manual and Steptronic gearboxes and with front- and all-wheel drive. The latter, MINI’s ALL4 system, has been further refined for agility and efficiency.

e’ve heard a lot about the Maruti-Suzuki Ignis ever since it was first showcased in 2015 at the Tokyo Motor Show as the iM-4 concept. Since then, it made it to European motor shows and eventually their markets while even gracing Maruti-Suzuki’s pavilion at the Auto Expo around the same time last year. With all that hype built around the curious yet affable little car, we headed to sunny Chennai, excited to finally drive it. The car hasn’t deviated from the way it looked as a concept and that’s much appreciated. It’s the design after all, that gets your attention first. LED DRLs, we’ve seen those before but LED headlamps too? That’s a first for Maruti, first for the segment and technology that until recently, was only limited to Audis and BMWs of the world. The Ignis is a very Japanese design, quirky, funky and stands out of the crop of small hatchbacks on our roads. Boxy exteriors but more rounded at the edges, a wide and continuous grille integrates the headlamps too, a gentle shoulder line running from the front fender, curving upward at the C-pillar and flared wheel arches, don’t we love those? The rear infuses retro-cool to this otherwise contemporary design. The slanting rear window and tail gate is reminiscent of the Suzuki SS80. Look at it from the side and it all comes together as a sporty

and fresh looking car sitting 180mm off the ground. It doesn’t fall into any specific body type but that trait alone makes it unique. 15-inch alloy wheels in black look cool and given the fact that the European model runs 16s, you could get a sportier look with aftermarket options and wider tyres. The interior is as funky as the outside. We liked the exterior colour co-ordinated bits inside the cabin, again a unique styling trait setting it apart from other cars. The dashboard is split into two portions with the upper finished in black and lower in ivory. The theme continues onto the door panels. Quality levels are high but just a shade under other offerings from NEXA and the Vitara Brezza. There are recognisable components from the parts bin of other Maruti offerings but the steering, door handles, centre console along with the overall cabin and its layout look entirely new. The highlight here though, is the 7-inch infotainment display which is the same as what you’ve seen in other cars from the family but encased in a bezel, it looks like a floating tablet. Then there are the digital climate control toggle switches which look cooler than anything we’ve seen Maruti-Suzuki put in their cars till date. Although, there is a little catch. These features are only available in the Alpha trim so the coolness quotient comes down as you move lower in the trim options. Suddenly, the non-touch, button-laden info-

given its tall proportions and wheelbase being similar to the Swift. Although the width restricts passenger capacity to four adults with acceptable shoulder room for front and rear passengers. The size of the car can be deceptive with the dimensions alone. The width of the car measures at 1,690mm which is closer to the Swift ar 1,695mm but that’s at the widest exterior points. Keep in mind that the flared wheel arches do take up some amount of that space leaving a narrower body and consequently, narrower interior. The length of the car is 100mm more than the Celerio but the wheelbase is 5mm more than that of the Swift as the wheels are literally at the corners of the car leaving minimal overhangs at the front and rear. This also translates to generous legroom inside the cabin. Think of it as a slightly taller, wider and longer Celerio with more space on offer for passengers. Three abreast on the rear seat will be a bit of a squeeze but with four on-board, the Ignis will prove to be very comfortable over distances too. Being a taller car there is ample headroom for you to pull off the latest headgear and more boot space than the Swift means more luggage space for vacations. Ground clearance is 10mm more than the Swift and

18mm lesser than the Brezza but enough for us to have tried taking it off-the-road, on a trail and not being worried about underbody damage. Driving the car will leave you more than impressed. Maruti-Suzuki has gone the tried and tested way with a choice of a 1.2-litre Dualjet petrol and 1.3-litre DDiS diesel motors on offer. These engines have served a number of Maruti cars for years now and have proven their reliability, efficiency and performance. What’s more is that AMT options are available on both engines. The petrol engine uses variable valve timing, making 82bhp and 113Nm of torque. Characteristically, this engine is peaky in nature and starts to sing post 4,000rpm where progress is rapid with an enthusiastic Suzuki engine note. At idle, this engine is so silent and refined you’d have to put in some effort to hear it run. The refinement remains on the move as there were no vibrations to speak of even as speeds built up. We only drove the manual variant and it shifts positively with solid clicks from gear to gear. Given the lighter weight of the Ignis, frisky driving immediately transforms the docile city slicker into an entertainer as grip levels are high. The joy of driving a rev-happy petrol motor is unparalled but the oil-burner takes it up a notch. The diesel engine has been well known for its frugality and adequate power delivery. In the Ignis, this engine

The 1.3-litre diesel engine’s claimed FE is 26.8kmpl and with a 32-litre tank, you’ll be looking at an average range of 700km in the city alone. 2. Meter console is the same for all variants. 3. HVAC controls on this top-spec AMT diesel seems like a huge step back into stone age potholes and it gets better as speeds climb. At slow speeds, the damping is a bit harsh but nothing that the well bolstered and slightly soft seats can’t handle. We were mostly on fast, straight stretches of highway during our drive and the Ignis felt confident and quick there. The car is possibly the lightest setup that the engines have been applied to and the suspension does a good job of keeping the car stable and planted at highway pace. So should you buy it? A lot of reasons have been listed above to answer that but who should buy it?

Verdict The Ignis is really a car that’s aimed at a specific audience than for mass appeal. And it does a good job of standing apart with unique features and styling that’s fresh, young and lively. The sprightly performance with optional convenience of an automatic further seals the deal for many young adults who’ll choose this car as their primary vehicle. The wide price band for the car aims to fit into various budgets and individual preferences however, we’re hopeful that the AMT option will be extended to the a fully-decked up Alpha trim with tighter pricing.

We can vouch for the foolproof Terrain Response System though, having driven the Disco Sport off-road previously. On road, speed breakers tackled at city speeds did filter through the cabin harshly. Thankfully, the ride at highway speeds is superb and road imperfections were hardly felt with the Disco displaying incredible poise. Comfort levels are high in the cabin, with the long list of features this HSE model adopts. The 10-speaker Meridian system for example brings out nuances in your music you’ll appreciate, as will you the 5V charging points through the cabin. Visibility is excellent all around, the standard panoramic sunroof adding a dimension of airiness to the cabin, something that will hopefully help the passengers in the third row too.

Verdict The Discovery Sport petrol is only available in the HSE variant, this means it comes with the 5+2 seating option, panoramic sunroof, 10-speaker Meridian audio, reverse camera and sensors and other goodies. And here’s the kicker. As of writing, all this is available at a celebratory price under that of the basic diesel variant. It also undercuts its competition by a fair margin. Even given the ARAI rated efficiency of 10.7kmpl versus the diesel’s 14kmpl, the initial savings you make, make a lot of sense any which way.

is that the dash is now new and is not shared with the Innova Crysta. The Fortuner offers multiple glove compartments and lots of stowage bins. The entertainment device is now a touchscreen unit and offers all functions including satnav. The instrument panel is good too and has a soothing blue backlight. The seats are electrically operable and are comfortable large perches.

1. The Fortuner is available with multiple engine options. In this test we deployed the 2.8-litre motor which offers 177bhp. 2. The Ford has the biggest engine here displacing 3.2-litres. 3. The Chevrolet too has a 2.8 much like the Fortuner. 4, 5 & 6. All three here come with 6-speed automatic transmissions

Chevrolet TrailBlazer vs Ford Endeavour vs Toyota Fortuner

The same is the case at the back. The third row though is not as usable. Boot space is generous and one can also fold down the second and third row to increase the same. Once in the Endeavour feels like being in a car of a higher class. The dash is beautifully laid out and features two-tone colours. The centre console houses a large display which not only works as an entertainment device but also supports Ford’s latest Sync 2 system. But the highlight of the Endeavour’s dash is the instrument panel. It is an all-digital affair which is not only comprehensive but also fully loaded. We loved this

feature. The front seats are also supremely comfortable and electrically adjustable too. There is ample space at the back too. However the high floor does cause a bit of concern. The third row is electrically adjustable but space is restricted. So expect it to be fit mainly for kids. Boot space is good and multiple options are available to extend loading space. In all with both rear rows folded the Endeavour can take in 2,300 litres of cargo. The interiors of the TrailBlazer are not as sci-fi as the Endeavour. Sure it too gets a two-tone treatment inside and an equally large dash. But the treatment is not as serious. The centre console houses a large

All three SUVs here feature three-row seating. While the Chevrolet and Ford (1 & 2) offer a full flat floor, the third row on the Toyota (3) folds up thus hindering loading ability

Road Test Toyota Fortuner The all new dash looks smart and the central entertainment device is large and easy to use. Multiple buttons on the steering operate various things. Quality is very good as well. The instrument panel looks good, is easy to read and at the same time extremely informative

Ford Endeavour The beige and black treatment livens up the interiors. The black panel on the centre console looks a bit bland although is functional. The instrument panel on the Ford is the best in business. This digital display offers plenty of options and allows one to tune it to his or her taste

Chevrolet TrailBlazer While the dash of the Chevy might not be futuristic, it is functional. The centre console houses the touch screen entertainment panel and right below sits controls for the climate control system. The instrument panel is informative but does not feature a stylish design

The Fortuner goes for the old-school start up way where the whole thing shakes up. But the best thing is that it settles down quick. On the move the big SUV feels quick and gets to speed easily. The gearbox shifts up quickly and the shifts are seamless. This makes the Fortuner a rather easy SUV to drive. The NVH levels have become better too but are not as good as the Ford. The multiple drive modes also help the Fortuner to up the ante when it comes to performance. There is a marked difference in acceleration and there is a proper tug which the driver can feel. Start up the Ford and the cabin is filled up with lit-

Motor Matters The Fortuner gets a 2.8-litre diesel engine offering 177bhp and 450Nm of torque. The Endeavour comes with a large 3.2-litre oil burner. This common-rail, diesel churns out 200bhp and 470Nm of torque. The Chevrolet gets the 2.8-litre Duramax engine. Now although it is a smaller engine, it churns out 200bhp and 500Nm of torque. All three here come with 6-speed automatic gearboxes but the Fortuner is the only one here which gets paddle shifters. However the Toyota and the Ford offer a 4WD system. While the Toyota has a shift-on-fly system, the Ford offers a terrain response system where the driver can select the terrain he or she is tackling and the system adapts to that. This allows these two SUVs to prove more capable off the road. The TrailBlazer on the other hand is only available in rear wheel drive guise.

LCD screen and Chevrolet is also offering the MyLink interface. The instrument panel is also a plain jane twinpod affair. However there are plenty of in-cabin storage options including multiple glove compartments. The rear seat too suffers from high floor syndrome. But kneeroom and headroom is aplenty. The third row much like the other two here suffers from restricted kneeroom and a long journey with two adults seated can be quite a pain. Both the rows fold down and as a result max cargo volume can go up to 1,830 litres.

this massive SUV forward. However get into a sporty mood and that’s when you would feel the difference. The gearbox does not feel as quick and the best way to tackle this situation is via manually shifting down. Once revved hard, the engine noise does creep into the cabin but this is at the fag end of the rev range and something which is not a common occurrence in everyday driving. In short the Endeavour is not a sports car and therefore

indulge in a gentle cruise rather than spirited driving and you will truly enjoy the finesse. There is also little to doubt the off-roading capabilities of the Endeavour. I remember driving on the infamous Lahar Beds in the Philippines in the previous generation Endeavour without getting stuck! So the little sandy track we threw at the Endeavour was devoured without much fuss. There was plenty of traction and the massive tyres ploughed

Any test involving SUVs is ever so engaging. In this test the Fortuner emerged as the winner clearly. The new Toyota is even better than before, offers plenty of space and at the same time will likely offer better resale value. The Endeavour on the other hand was the winner last time we compared it with the TrailBlazer. While it is a very capable SUV, in certain parameters, it is overtaken by the Toyota. My particular favourite on the Endeavour remains to be the instrument panel. The Chevrolet though capable is rear wheel drive and this means it loses out on crucial points. But make no mistake it is a comfortable SUV as well.

udi finally caves in and designs an SUV-coupe. The Q8 may only be a concept but expect these styling cues to make it to future Audi Q SUVs. Starting from the wide singleframe grille, to the prominent flaring above the wheel arches and the flat and exceptionally wide C-pillars. Though the 23-inch wheels, and the touch sensitive doors, make up a few design elements that probably won’t make it to the production car. We hope the Bombay Blue colour does though. The Q8 goes buttonless inside, using large touchscreens for everything from climate control to infotainment. Despite the dramatically sloping roofline the Q8 will offer 4 equally comfortable seats. At the same time, that roofline makes the Q8 look far sportier than Audi’s current top-of-the-line SUV in its range, the Q7. Obviously then the Q8 concept will be looking to compete against the current SUV-coupe mashups from the other German manufacturers.

Audi SQ5

This is the SQ5 from Audi. Wearing the new face of the Q5 line, yet to be seen in India, the SQ5 is droolworthy simply because it’s an all-wheel drive SUV that reaches 100kmph from standstill in 5.1s. This thanks to its 3-litre turbo diesel V6 with 349bhp under the hood, eight-speed auto box and full time four-wheel drive. Optional extras are a trick sport differential that allows for oversteer and Audi’s 12.3-inch instrumentationreplacing Virtual Cockpit.

Infiniti QX50 concept

U

nder the Infiniti QX50’s sharp sheet metal, hides what could be the best thing to happen to the internal combustion engine since turbos - variable compression. What this means is that the 2-litre engine in the QX50 can increase or decrease cylinder compression ratios according to the need. Need power? An actuator arm lowers the big end of the crank, increasing the reach of the pistons and decreasing the compression to as low as 8.0:1. Under low-throttle, the opposite happens and as high as 14.0:1 compression can be achieved, aiding fuel efficiency. The concept previews the very-close-to-production QX50 crossover set to replace the current gen-QX50.

BMW 5-Series The Detroit Motor Show marked the world premiere of BMW’s new 5-Series. The AUTO TODAY team has driven the car already and find it vastly improved on the last generation.

KIA Stinger

W

ith KIA planning to enter India soon, the Stinger is one sedan that caught our eyes and imagination (as far fetched as it may be). The Korean automaker’s first shot at a driver’s car, the Stinger has apparently been tuned at the Nurburgring and boasts of a near 50/50 weight distribution. There’s a 2-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel on offer but the highlight will be the 3.3-litre V6 in the Stinger GT. The Stinger has the BMW 3-Series in its sights, though with a longer wheelbase than that of the competition, KIA says the car is more grandtouring than sports sedan. To that end, it even gets a hatchback-like trunk opening for maximum boot space.

Lexus LS 500

T

here’s a new Lexus flasgship and it’s this, the fifth-generation LS 500. Based on the same all-new GA-L platform as the sportscar LC 500, it makes liberal use of high-strength steel and aluminium to keep weight down. This despite having a longer wheelbase than the last-gen car, which will definitely up interior space. The biggest engine in the lineup is a new 3.5-litre, twin turbo V6 that makes 415bhp and 600Nm torque. The LS also gets a new 10-speed auto that’ll help it hit the ton from zero in under 4.5 seconds.

Toyota Camry

W

ith its badge’s etymology from the Japanese word kanmuri, or crown, the Camry has been the best-selling car in America. For 14 years running, across segments. And Toyota has seen fit to give it a complete redo. In fact, the CEO Akio Toyoda involved himself in the process, with a focus towards making the new car more expressive. The new eighth generation car is based on the Toyota New Global Architecture, or TNGA, first seen underpinning the new Prius. This makes it lower, wider, sleeker and with a longer wheelbase. This means the interiors will be even roomier than before. The cabin has seen a makeover too. A new 10-inch heads-up display is the highlight as are the intersecting lines making up different layers of the dash. For the first time ever, the Camry gets a multilink rear suspension, which will definitely aid ride and handling. A host of active safety tech is expected to make it to the car, like lane departure assist, collision detect, emergency braking and more. As with the previous generation, we expect only the hybrid version of the car to make it to our showrooms, sometime in the coming year.

VW ID Buzz concept

R

evealed for the first time ever, the ID Buzz is VW’s take on the electric future. And it’s as un-German as it can get. For inspiration, VW looked to their past. And the very cool and very 60s VW Microbus. The platform this is based on is called the MEB, which is essentially the MQB-platform underpinning almost every new VW Group product on the market from hatchbacks to sedans to SUVs, except it’s been modified for electric-only vehicles. We expect the MEB-platform to be instrumental in leading VW’s electric-brigade forward. Like the original Microbus, the ID will provide seating for up to 8 passengers. Unlike the hippy-favourite-original, it will not run on love and fresh air, instead using two electric motors with an estimated 369bhp power output. The all-electric drivetrain is said to have a Tesla Model 3-besting range of 430km per charge. Onto the fun part - the interiors. There’s an augmented reality heads-up display and a touch sensitive steering wheel and in typical flower-power-Microbus fashion, a troll dash-figurine. The cabin controls have all been relegated to touchscreens and in the autonomous drive mode, the seats swivel to face each other and the centre console can be relocated too. We really hope VW makes this one, as a part of their goal of a million electric cars sold by 2025.

VW Tiguan Allspace

W

e saw the Tiguan at the Delhi Auto Expo last year and have been expecting VW to bring it to India, to wash away memories of VW’s unspectacular SUV sales in the country (Touareg, anyone?). VW has had similar plans in the North American market, having revealed the long wheelbase variant in Detroit, called the Tiguan Allspace to make the Tiguan more attractive to customers shopping the hyper-competitive crossover market. Incidentally, the main market for this SUV will be China. This 7-seater model is 225mm longer than the 5-seater model, with a wheelbase that’s 110mm longer. Though the Tiguan will be brought in as a CBU, it will be powered by the now locally-produced 2-litre diesel. This engine also does duty under the hood of the Jetta, Audi A3, Q3 & Skoda Octavia. Given our market’s penchance for the LWB models, expect the Tiguan Allspace soon.

Rinspeed Oasis Concept Swiss tuning and restoration shop Rinspeed continues the tradition of making concept cars for motor shows, most of which don’t see the light of day. This year’s Oasis concept is an autonomous vehicle that redefines personal mobility in the urban jungle - by bringing actual vegetation into the car! This, the 23rd concept car, has a small garden just ahead of the dash with space enough for bonsai plants and to grow radishes (actual idea for the cabin-garden, as per Rinspeed). Also featured are armchairs, a sideboard, a TV and real wood flooring. Even the steering wheel folds into a keyboard, ready to turn the driver’s seat into a workspace with office productivity tools. That said, the concept can make turns on the spot. February 2017 | Auto Today

he Vmotion 2.0 concept shown for the first time at the Detroit Motor Show is the ultimate Nissan design study. The grille is such an integral part of the design, it even gets its own name. Named the V-motion grille, Nissan designers have used it as a starting point for almost every other design cue on the car from the wicked headlights to the strong shoulder lines and unique glasshouse.

he VW Atlas is a seven-seater SUV that will bridge the gap between the Tiguan and the more expensive (and barely-selling) Touareg. Based on the MQB platform, it is said the Atlas is stretching the limits of the platform to make sure 7 adults have the required head and legroom to make VW’s journey into the SUV segment a success. For a size comparison, look at the Audi Q7 (based on the larger MLB platform), with which the Atlas will likely share a lot of key components. This is said to include the Audi Virtual Cockpit. The Atlas will be made at the firm’s manufacturing facility in Tennessee, America and will be exported to China and other key markets, hopefully to India too.

Mercedes-Benz GLA

M

ercedes-Benz is keeping its crossover game strong. Just three years into its life cycle, the GLA gets a facelift. As such, the first crossover SUV from Mercedes gets subtle changes to its exteriors and a few changes to its mechanicals too. First up, an all new colour - canyon beige. The earlier bi-xenon headlamps are now offered with LED optics as optional. The tail lights get smart tech too, with three different light intensities depending on ambient light. The grille and bumper get slight tweaking to tie it all together. All this gives the car a slight (0.28cd to 0.29cd) aerodynamic edge over its predecessor. A new off-road package will lift the suspension by 30mm. We expect Mercedes to offer this as standard on cars sold in India. Of course, the sporty variant, the GLA45 AMG gets a host of styling changes too. A new petrol engine, in the GLA 220 4MATIC, was introduced to the range but we’re not holding our breath to see it here.

GAC GS7 GAC, the only Chinese-carmaker at the Detroit show, had three vehicles on its stand. Alongside the EnSpirit hybrid plug-in sedan, the GE3 electric crossover, was this car, the GS7, the closest to production. It’s also surprisingly far from looking like a rip-off. The state-owned company is one of the most popular Chinese brands in its home country. The GS7 is a five-seat crossover that’s yet to have its China-debut, which points to the hopes GAC has riding on this SUV in America. The powertrain is a 2-litre turbo petrol engine with 201bhp mated to a six-speed transmission and alltime AWD. Interiors look upmarket with a 10.1-inch touchscreen, digital instrumentation and a huge panoramic sunroof. February 2017 | Auto Today

Faraday Future is an American start up that’s betting big on making a car to beat Tesla. That’s a tall promise. The car in question is the FF91. Boasting an electric only powertrain, the total power output is 1050bhp, almost one and a half times more than that of the most powerful Tesla. Other headline figures are a 0-100kmph sprint in 2.4 seconds and 600km range on a single charge. The main reason the FF91 is making news is the claimed fast charging capabilities, said to be able to fully charge empty batteries in just 45 minutes! The Tesla SuperCharger facility by comparison is said to take 115 minutes for a 100% charge. With initial booking starting at nearly Rs 3.5 lakh and deliveries in late 2018, let’s hope Faraday Future delivers on its Tesla-besting promise.

Hyundai takes connected mobility a step further - back into your home! The Mobility Vision concept essentially marries a smart home and a connected car. Hyundai’s concept consists of the interiors of a car that will dock with your house when not in use. The concept would have a hydrogen fuel cell to power its air-conditioning and entertainment, apart from its propulsion unit, of which no details have been revealed. At this stage, the concept is more of a study into the future conveniences Hyundai can offer. Beyond being an extension of the house, the cabin will also dock with a future Hyundai vehicle when the occupants want to make a grocery run. What happens when you hold a party remains to be seen.

Toyota Concept-i

Toyota’s connected car concept is called the concept-i and the vision behind it asks what the future car would look like if it was focused on the people using it, namely you. That’s why, like Honda’s concept, it boasts of an AI personality. Named Yui (clever, Toyota) the software hopes to build a relationship between the car and the driver. Yui does this with biometric sensors that measure your emotional responses to the places you visit and your current mood to anticipate future needs of the driver. The concept-i can operate in autonomous mode or manual mode depending on road conditions and fatigue levels. So, just like a buddy would, it can take over when you’re drowsy.

Leaving for Bodh Gaya the next day, we awoke early to start getting our photography and videography in order. Since we had 481km to go and only a day to get there, we had to really optimise our time while shooting and driving. Heading west on NH19, road construction and two-lane highways kept us from exploring any true capabilities. What it did confirm was exactly how comfortable the Ford Mustang is as a grand tourer. Soaking up bumps as they came, the Mustang limbered to our halfway point, Nirsa, a sprawling town in the Dhanbad district of Jharkhand. Right

Funny enough, an obsession with the engineering of motorcycles is what drew the man who set up the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum to them in the first place. George Barber wasn’t a motorcyclist. He had never even ridden one till his late twenties. But, he was attracted to the mechanical beauty of them. And after a very successful period racing Porsches in the 60s, he turned to restoring old cars and eventually motorcycles. The passion for art on two-wheels stuck and a new dream was born - to establish the world’s largest collection right there in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. Realised in 2003, the facility also has a 16-turn racetrack next door where Porsche holds their Sport Driving School. As of now,

ere’s some food for thought. The next truck you pass on the highway, could be driven by a professional race driver. And that exclusive status is something the finalists of last year’s T1 racing program enjoy, very much in fact. They’re soon to be joined by a new batch of drivers turned racers who make the final cut in TRP 2.0. Set up in 2014 as a platform for Tata to showcase its technological prowess in the T1 series of heavy trucks, the first season of T1 Prima truck racing had seasoned truck race drivers from the British Truck Racing Championship (BTRC) show off their skills. The trucks raced were the Prima 4038 available commercially, with a series of modifications as approved by the FIA and FMSCI. Each season brings with it new learning and further technical upgrades, with speeds now climbing above 140kmph from the 110kmph of the stock truck.

Thankfully, we weren’t subjected to the rigors of the physical tests. We did, however, get to ride shotgun. A hot lap of the MMRT in an 18 tonne vehicle being driven in anger is eye-opening.

The group of trainers include famous names in racing like Aditya Patel, Radha Selvarajan and Naren Shankaran to name a few, all of who agree - some of the new drivers are proper fast naturally. Speed isn’t the only outcome of TRP though. Several of last year’s drivers are heroes within their community.

he Indian Car of the Year award didn’t come as much of a surprise to me. The Brezza is that good a car. Boasting features from a segment above, delivering every bit of convenience, practicality and the thrill of driving bundled in a good-looking package, you can rarely go wrong with that formula. Add Maruti-Suzuki to the name and low cost of maintenance, reliability and hiccup-free ownership experience comes along standard. In my last report I mentioned that the Brezza finally getting to stretch its legs on the highway. The service has helped smoothen engine operation and the engine noise is much subdued post warming up. A usual check before a long trip and the Brezza and I headed to the hills in the scarce traffic that the winter months are blessed with in this region. Dynamically, the car has never disappointed so continuous corners for a couple of hundred kilometres was something I was looking forward to. Traffic conditions and great visibility rendered full use of the short-ratio, 5-speed gearbox as the pace picked up. The Brezza simply kept taking those corners with so much confidence and stability that even pushing hard couldn’t make the Apollo tyres squeal. Much credit to their grip but most of it was also due to the Brezza’s mechanical grip despite the high centre of gravity. However, a bit of off-road section on the long journey was a tad too much for the car’s suspension. Most of the stability comes from the stiffness of the suspension. This becomes a drawback when dealing with a hard and bumpy surface where the car is a bit skittish. Increasing speeds only made the ride more jarring. The suspension seems to have settled in now losing a hair from its original stiffness and a bit of brake fade is now evident. But that’s nothing out of the ordinary.

Estimating distances between your car and the next is made virtually foolproof, thanks to the short hood and excellent visibility afforded by the high-set seating position and large glass area. It also feels narrow enough for you to pick smaller gaps in traffic that you wouldn’t normally attempt to squeeze into. Unfortunately, that high seat also means I feel like I’m sitting on the car. Now that’s the idea they were going for, to offer average height drivers the best view of the road around them. For someone just under 6ft, that’s a problem since the seat rail doesn’t allow me to push the seat back far enough from the pedals. This means my legs are always bent just a little more than

This could also be thanks to the thinly padded seats, which do help rear seat space. The S variant we have is supposed to be top-ofthe-line but comes with power windows only for the front while it omits central locking, a move that often makes me feel like I’m back in the 90s, having to yell at passengers to lock their door when they leave the car. Other glaring issues are literally that, since the IRVM doesn’t even offer a manual anti-glare setting while the readout on the audio system is unreadable during the day.

The Redditch series motorcycles will be available in three coulors - Redditch Red, Redditch Green and Redditch Blue. The bike also comes with special badging which differentiates it from other variants. These variants have been inspired by the paint schemes on 50s era Royal Enfield motorcycles that were produced in Redditch, UK - the birthplace of Royal Enfield motorcycles. The Royal Enfield Redditch series will be available at Rs 1.46 lakh (onroad, New Delhi).

There are no mechanical changes to the motorcycle and it will be powered by the same 350cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which makes 19bhp power and 28Nm of torque. However, we also hear that Royal Enfield is all set to launch BSIV complaint motors as well as ABS on the popular Classic series motorcycles.

Motorcycle News

KTM lets loose the RC brothers after the blockbuster success that the last two RC twins turned out to be, Bajaj Auto has launched the new KTM RC range for 2017, comprising of both the RC390 and the RC200. While the RC390 has been launched at a price of Rs 2.25 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi), the new RC200 has been priced at Rs. 1.71 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). Apart from the new graphics and BSIV compliant engines, there are significant mechanical updates as well. Let’s start with the bigger sibling, the RC390, the one that has received the most amount of changes. Starting with performance additions to the motorcycle, the RC390 gets a features list that includes ride-by-wire throttle, a slipper clutch and a bigger 320mm front disc brake. The engine remains the same as the previous model year motorcycle, putting out 44bhp and 35Nm of torque. Other than these changes, KTM has given the bike new livery with the graphics on the fairing and a new exhaust which is no longer tucked inside the underbelly pan but is now a side mounted unit. Other changes that a keen eye would find around the new RC390 are adjustable levers, UV resistant paint and wider mirrors. The next change is to the tyres which have been fitted to the bike. Many owners used to earlier complain about the longetivity of the Metzelers which used to come as standard.

Most expensive motorcycle in India With a production run of just 250 motorcycles, MV Agusta has brought in the most expensive production motorcycle available in the market today, priced at Rs 50.1 lakh (ex-showroom, Pune). Designed by the legendary Italian motorcycle designer, Massimo Tamburini. The MV Agusta F4 boasts of utterly gorgeous styling and the current F4 RC continues the lineage. The bike is a limited-edition model that is co-branded with AMG and has been hand assembled by master craftsmen in Italy. The certificate of authenticity makes it as exclusive as its details. It is the last AMG branded F4 RC; and hence is truly a collector’s edition. The F4 RC is powered by a 998cc four-cylinder engine that produces an astonishing 205 horsepower at 13,450rpm (going up to 212bhp with the race kit installed, which is provided with the bike). 100

very once in a while comes along a motorcycle that promises a change, a marked shift in the industry. Bajaj did that nearly a decade and a half back. The Pulsar was a game changer and became a success story like none other in the

Indian motorcycling industry. It stemmed a generation of performance hungry enthusiasts and opened up a niche to the masses. 15 years down the line and Bajaj is attempting to rewrite its success story with a new name - the Dominar 400, its most powerful offering

to the Indian masses. What looked like a radical new design at the 2014 Auto Expo, still impresses in production form. Most of the design elements have been carried forward from the CS400 showcased then, with the exception of a few

First Ride parts that has helped Bajaj keep costs in check. Power cruiser was what we interpreted it as but this is a motorcycle genre which barely has a handful of motorcycles. And this is where Bajaj has cashed in. Attempting to bite a piece of the KTM 390 Duke’s cake would’ve been futile as the NS200, Bajaj’s 200 Duke competitor, didn’t quite set sales charts afire. Another competitor in this segment is the formidable Royal Enfield range for their immense popularity and a mammoth market

share. So being different meant a new vision and the thus was born the Dominar. Get astride and the first thing you’ll feel is the 182kg kerb weight. The second thing to hit you would be the fantastic quality of parts on the motorcycle. The paint, plastic and even welds on the frame are clean and top-notch. Fire it up and the engine settles into a mature thrum instead of the raucous exhaust note of the KTM 390 Duke. Mentioning the latter is necessary as the engine

block for both motorcycles is shared but Bajaj has used its DTS-i tech and reasoning for a long-legged cruiser. Unlike the NS200 where power output was nearly the same as the KTM, here it has been revised to 35bhp coming in at 8,000rpm and 35Nm of torque being developed at 6,500rpm, 28Nm of which come as early as 3,000rpm. Clearly, the focus here is mid-range performance or real world performance, as Bajaj likes to call it. Moving off the line and going through the

Bajaj Dominar 400 gears at a gentle pace, the Dominar’s heft disappears as the balance of the reinforced perimeter frame takes over. Coupled with a pressed steel swingarm, it not only contributes to the stretched look but also enhances stability. Real world engineering has to conquer real world issues, the biggest of which is traffic. The 390’s frantic engine doesn’t like it at all and will make its annoyance felt with excruciating heat. The Dominar on the other hand, was cool as a cucumber. No really, the lower power output and relaxed nature of the engine translates into excellent heat management, necessary for Indian weather conditions. First gear, riding the clutch to manage crawls, not once did the Dominar flinch at the task at hand. It was also a time when I noticed how easy it was to manage the bike through traffic. Unsurprisingly, there came a point where a diversion had to be tackled due to light excavation on the highway. And as overflowing traffic on our roads go, I found myself navigating through loose gravel and sand where again, it was easy and almost natural to handle the Dominar there. A glimpse if not a preview of the Dominar’s light off-roadability. Bajaj is claiming operability till 18,380ft and we all know the place

hinted at, where these traits come handy. Speaking of which, heading to Ladakh will also require traversing kilometres of straight and twisty highways. Here is when you’ll not just enjoy the stability but the reserve of power that this engine has post 4,000rpm. The weight of the Dominar though, restricts full-blown power delivery from a standstill, reaching the ton in 8.23 seconds from a standstill. The engine enters the powerband around 4,000rpm while a surprising top-end band is hidden away post 7,000rpm till 9,500rpm where the engine hits the rev-limiter.

power delivery making it very easy to adapt to. The gearbox deserves a special mention as it’s possibly the best unit we’ve come across on a Bajaj motorcycle. Slick, solid shifts and the slipper assist taking aggressive riding into its stride. The ride is bordering stiff and most of that comes from the front suspension. But at no point did the suspension threaten to throw the rider off balance. It absorbed most undulations on our roads with ease and the firm seat will not leave you fatigued at the end of a long ride. The balance between a plush setup versus hard probably tipped towards the latetr because of handling. A longer wheelbase always has detrimental effects around corners, making it lazy but this motorcycle isn’t. It’ll turn in quickly and hold its line through a corner as the soft MRF REVZ C1 tyres offer very good grip. This was the most admirable aspect of the Dominar’s handling as it may appear to be slower around corners but it isn’t and has ample clearance to put in a fair amount of lean.

Verdict So win, win for Bajaj then? At Rs 1.36 lakh for the non-ABS Dominar 400, it manages to undercut all of its competition by massive margins. Even shelling out Rs 14,000 more for the ABS version won’t get you anything else that might match the bike’s quality, performance and price-to-performance ratio. The fact that it looks good is just an added bonus while the fancy LED headlamp will add to the exclusivity for now. Besides, you’re also getting a touring machine more fit for the job. Better heat management, ample power, agile and easy handling, modern styling elements and the backing of a widespread service network. We’re tipping our hats to this one.

he story began in 1928 when Indian Motorcycles produced their first Scout. Then on, it wrote a piece of history made most famous by Burt Munroe, a person who has set examples of commitment and holder of the land speed record in the under 1,000cc category. Many decades have gone by but the name still remains, what Indian calls as their most attainable motorcycle - the Scout. The company’s smallest motorcycle till date, the Scout quickly became a hot favourite for both new and seasoned motorcyclists for its ease of riding despite the big V-twin inside its crafted frame. But then, a new Scout emerged in 2016. One that got even more affordable. Indian Motorcycles had to price the Scout lower to compete with lower capacity models by its rivals. That they stuck to their roots than devise a cheap alternative is admirable. For a brand that’s known for its exclusivity and style of motorcycles, it was essential to cut costs where it matters but not take away from a praiseworthy and successful design. So the Sixty is a spitting image of the Scout but take it as a no-frills version. Every bit that makes the Scout look

a little special, has been taken away but that’s only bling that you could live without. I like the Scout in that classy Thunder Black Smoke colour but I could even have the Sixty in Thunder Black for a more minimal and a blacked-out badass look. Where the real difference lies is at the heart of the motorcycle. The Scout’s 60-degree V-twin has lost 6mm in its bore with the stroke intact. That resulted in a 999cc engine that develops 78bhp and 89Nm. Before you jump at the fact that it’s lost 131cc, 22bhp and 9Nm in the process, allow me to tell you how surprised I was when I dropped the clutch at 4,500rpm for a proper launch from a standstill. I’m not even going to bother you with figures because the Scout Sixty is too retro yet subtly classy for a timer. It’s about how you’re constantly being pushed towards the edge of the single seat under the relentless torque deliver till upper reaches of 6,000rpm. It’s about letting the vibes tell you the time to shift and quick footwork offers a satisfying click into the next gear. It’s about that low slung riding position that enhances the sense of speed but lets you be in complete control of the motorcycle.

Indian Scout Sixty I had the opportunity to ride the Scout and Scout Sixty back to back. I realised that apart from that extra burst of torque lower in the rev range there wasn’t a single moment that I would complain of dearth of power. The Sixty pulls nearly as hard and settles at the same triple-digit cruising speed around 4-4,500rpm. Indian has smartly removed the fifth gear from the Scout’s 6-speed gearbox resulting in the latter becoming the top-gear for the Sixty and the same final ratio. Power delivery is predictable and linear without any signs of stress. Except that there are vibrations felt around the 5,000rpm mark but you’ll surely settle at a cruising speed lower than that where the sweet spot of the engine lies. Being the lightest in a family of heavyweights

does have its advantages. The Scout Sixty is surprisingly agile around corners with a good amount of clearance thanks to the forward set footpegs. 135mm to be precise and that allows you to lean the Scout up to 31-degrees, enough for flowing twisties with the occasional footpeg scrapes. It’s even the 643mm seat height that helps build more confidence in the motorcycle’s superb stability. There were only a few times though that the meagre 76mm of rear suspension travel fell short of its damping abilities, resulting in slight twitching at high speeds. But it was only so slight that I could blame it on a lower rear tyre pressure, which rectifying should take care of. The Sixty remains dimensionally identical to the Scout with only a 2kg weight advantage over

the Scout, which felt rock steady on the same stretch of road and speed. The Sixty has a metre and a half long wheelbase but that doesn’t hold it back in traffic. The Sixty impresses with its manoeuvrability and it’s nimble enough to make quick directional changes with minimal effort. It really feels like a much lighter and smaller motorcycle. To think of it, these are exactly the traits you’re looking for while entering the world of heavy cruiser motorcycles. The Scout Sixty weighs 252kg dry. That’s a lot of heft that the cast aluminium frame hides very well besides contributing to the refined, vibrationfree operation of the engine. It’s easy to comprehend that the Sixty has the ability to keep you comfortable in the saddle for many kilometres. In fact, you’ll probably have to stop for fuel earlier with the 12.5 litres of tank capacity.

The difference between exshowroom prices of the Scout and the Scout Sixty is nearly Rs 2 lakh. That’s an amount which only takes away a few aesthetic bits and a bit more from the engine. But it leaves you with the same original styling and nearly similar performance. It’s also a difference that’ll get you entry into a very exclusive community in the Indian market (pun intended). After all, it is their entry-level motorcycle. Instead of being entry-level trim, it is actually a top-quality product and leaves you with no feeling of compromise. More than the price, it is the entry point into a rich heritage of motorcycling, love for the open road and riding into sunsets.

Triumph Bonneville T100 itself feels good and controls fall within reach of your thumbs without stretching. Both levers are adjustable for reach, and the round retro mirrors offer adjustability making for good visibility. Both criteria that make the experience of riding a Bonnie a breeze for a lot of the bornagain-bikers the Bonnie range seems to attract. While the power and torque figures might not seem awe inducing on paper, on the road it’s a different story. The strong low end torque makes it a stronger performer than the figures suggest. Accompanying the soundtrack, unique thanks to the new 270-degree crank firing order, is a complete lack of vibes. The first thought you’re bound to have when you ride the T100, is of butter. Seriously, the new 900cc engine is just that smooth. Even the torque assisted clutch makes light work of gear changes. And each of the 5-speed gearbox’s ratios shift with a clunk but it’s the kind of smooth

The low speed ride is plush and the longer wheelbase of 1450mm over the more affordable Street Twin makes a difference.

and you start noticing the ride getting choppy. While the Bonneville isn’t meant as a roadattack motorcycle, you can approach a corner with the confidence that you’ll make it through and look good doing it. Severe lean angles are limited by the pegs but then again finding those limits would take a really adventurous spirit. The feel and bite from the brakes, under normal street riding, is perfectly adequate.

Verdict The Bonneville T100 will appeal to those looking for a premium, relaxed & comfortable motorcycle that they can live with everyday. And we’re not just talking about the more, ahem, mature motorcyclist either. In the Bonnie range, the Street Twin is more affordable, agile and urgent feeling, while the larger 1,200cc-engined T120 has longer legs on the highway. The T100 strikes a happy compromise at a price of Rs 7.78 lakh and is the only motorcycle you’ll ever need - whether your needs are for your commute, touring or for a Sunday ride.

It did go on to become the first fuel-injected motorcycle in India and even is today the highest selling model in one of the fastest growing segments.

The newer generation design does give it an evolved Glamour look and that’s a good thing. Look at it and you know it’s a Hero. The previous model’s trademark dual-tone colour scheme has been retained while the overall design now features smoother lines. The headlamp is larger and accommodates simple yet stylish pilot lamps.

yet smart looking tank and side fairing. The rear fairing is larger and very different than before and does not merge with the side anymore. Move to the rear and it’s a very different looking rear. This, thanks to the angular LED tail lamp that dominates the back. Apart from the various dual-tone colour schemes, the omission of chrome and Y-shaped alloy wheels make the Glamour look a lot more sporty than before. Even the digital-analogue instrument cluster goes with the overall design theme. We would have liked to see newer switchgear though. Like the fuel tank cap, the unit is exactly the same as the old Glamour. Overall quality is as good as the model it replaces. Look at the Glamour from the side and you will notice a big change. Gone is the horizontally mounted engine. It is now vertically mounted and all-new. Based on the new Splendor’s motor, the 124.7cc undersquare unit is BSIV compliant and is claimed to be 27 per cent more powerful. The FI variant produces 11.5bhp at 7,500rpm, compared to the earlier generation model at 9.1bhp. Torque has gone up by 6 percent, 11Nm is available at 6,000rpm. Like before, the Glamour will be avail-

able in a carburetted version too. Power figures are nearly identical for both variants, though the FI is claimed to be quicker to cross 60kmph from standstill (5.6s and 6s respectively) due to peak torque being delivered 500rpm earlier than on the carburetted version. Fuel efficiency is also claimed to be improved. The FI variant returns 62kmpl while the carburettor-equipped Glamour returns a slightly lower 60kmpl. We rode both variants around a private circuit outside of Buenos Aires and were impressed with the refinement of the engine. It’s a definite step up from the previous Honda-based unit making it one of the most refined engines we’ve seen in this segment. Power delivery is a lot more linear in the FI variant and despite riding close to the redline, engine vibration was never an issue. The

gear shifts are smooth and the ratios are well set. The straight on the 2.5km track was about 800m long and the Glamour did well to reach the 100kmph mark. Even at slower speeds, the engine is happy to run smoothly at higher gears making it a great urban commuter. Handling has improved too, the all-new single downtube cradle frame is lighter and provides more rigifity than the outgoing model. The overall kerb weight is down on the old model too. You can feel it immediately on the road, it is more agile and this made it a pleasure to ride on the track. In fact we ended up riding around the track for hours until the organisers had to call us back in. For a commuter motorcycle, the Glamour proved to be very impressive around corners. The MRF Zapper-FQ tubeless tyres also proved to be great and is a good match to the chassis. The Hero team tested various motorcycles from the segment and claim that the new Glamour is several notches above when it comes to dynamics. Since it was a smooth circuit, we cannot comment on the overall ride quality but the suspension setting seems to be tuned well for both broken as well as smooth roads. The seat is firm and good for long commutes too. Braking is good, we tested the disc brake version that features a 240mm disc. The bite from the BYBRE brake unit is similar to the top rivals from the segment.

1. All-new engine is 27 per cent more powerful than before, also vertically mounted. 2. Y-shaped alloy wheels another change compared to the old-gen Glamour. 3. Headlight cluster may not be most modern looking but features a large reflector area. 4. All black, no chrome treatment is a styling cue carried over from previous gen. 5.

Verdict The Glamour is Hero MotoCorp’s third all-new motorcycle and is an improvement over its predecessor in every aspect. It promises to be a better performer and, more importantly, return more kilometres to the litre. The motorcycle even offers great features including the i3S start/ stop technology. Price is expected to be competitive and we are confident that the new Glamour has all it takes to continue dominating this fast growing and important segment.

he buzzing metropolis that the NCR has now become, leaves little to discover. Although, rarely does one stray from the tarmac in search of hinterland. Which is why it’s encouraging to see motorsport enthusiast Vikramjeet Sharma and Gagan Sachdeva set up the Off-road Adventure Zone at the outskirts of Gurgaon, Haryana. News reached Triumph Motorcycles soon and they were quick to line-up a fleet of their Tiger 800 range of ADV motorcycles for a weekend to master the beast.

Big adventure motorcycles are built for overlanding, for mega round-the-world and cross-country trips. But not always will you have tarmac for company. More often than not, you will need to negotiate natural obstacles. This is where Triumph’s Tiger Training Academy comes in. When off-road, being as slow as possible and as fast as necessary is the mantra. So we started off with a slalom run and figure of eights to get used to the sheer size and 191kg dry weight of the Tiger 800 XRx. An important learning is really unlearning

The thing about big ADVs is that they’re not the most handy tools to navigate through tight trails and extreme courses that lightweight enduro motorcycles find themselves at home with. Unless you’re ace stunt rider Ernie Vigil, manhandling the Tiger 800 through the wickedest natural environments in the short film Raiden Files, you’ll have a really tough time with these motorcycles in uncharted territories

the act of going with the motorcycle as on tarmac. As speeds build, it becomes essential to lean with the motorcycle on tarmac for effective drive and traction management. Off the road, speeds are slower and you’re riding on a surface that’s constantly moving underneath the tyres. Knobblies help dig through the loose dirt to find grip but more essentially, it’s keeping your body upright on the motorcycle and leaning it away from you that helps keep traction. The word “cross” from motocross originates from this very aspect. The

rider’s body is always crossed against the motorcycle, meaning you lean the bike away from yourself to turn as the body remains straight over the bike, forming an X. What this ensures is that your body is always pressing down on the contact patches, forcing the tyres into the ground perpendicularly rather than sliding away on the side, losing pace and traction.

essential to have better control. Fitness is also a key factor, as the amount of stamina required to constantly use every bit of your body to manoeuvre the motorcycle is phenomenal. Core abdominal muscles help you lean forward and keep weight off the arms by supporting the upper body. There’s also a lot of moving back and forth while standing to weight the front or the rear. Approaching a steep incline, your weight needs to be forward to help the front get enough grip for effective steering and to control it from flipping

over under power. Descents require bodyweight to be shifted to the rear to get braking traction at the rear to control the descent and change direction using the rear brakes. And yes, always look ahead to where you want to go rather than immediately ahead. Once used to this “cross” body-positioning, it becomes so much more easier dealing with a big adventure motorcycle. There were falls, many of them but even the best fall and get up to ride on with a lesson learnt to not repeat the same mistakes again.

All this also translates to a weight loss of around 15kg over its stock road-going counterpart. For better performance, it gets a race ECU which gives riders the choice of two interchangeable engine maps. An engineer tuned default setting according to track conditions and the second, customizable midrace according to the rider’s preferences.

The race weekend was definitely actionpacked as emotions ran high amongst the competitors. This was to be the last round and last chance of the 2016 season to move up the championship table, come what may. Even if no races got under way, the points from the previous races would be considered while crowning the this season’s champions from Thailand and even sound absolutely epic. Stepping away from paper and actually swinging a leg over, the bike is quite the sprightly performer, thanks to the low- and mid-range power bump of 15 percent and changes direction, as if on rails. It is a performance machine but also requires certain skill on the riders part to harness that power. I’ve been priveleged enough to get my hands on a fair share of high-performance machines. The 250 I was about to race though, absolutely did not disappoint.

Honda One-Make Championship was serious business. For the qualifying, I started pushing a little harder but still was only using about 60 per cent of the MRF Racing rubber’s abilities. I reached the pits and immediately headed off to find my timings. My best lap was recorded at 2 minutes 22 seconds, a lifetime away from the 2 minutes 2 seconds best lap of Hari Krishnan R who took pole position. Sunday. Final race day. The close-knit ambience of the Madras Motor Race Track was filling up with spectators fast. This would be my last day at the track and during suit-up, I decided I needed to push my limits further today. I didn’t have a justifiable argument for this, I just did. After a perfect launch for the formation lap, the competitors lined up at the grid. While my rev needle hovered around the 7-8,000rpm mark, the lights turn green, I pop my clutch and my left foot slips off the foot peg. S*#t! I fall back 10ft from the group and am left trailing all the way, right from C2. It’s a good thing I motivated myself to push because that’s exactly what I needed to do right now. I found myself braking much later, turning in more quickly (and forcefully) and overall having to nudge way past my comfort point. Six laps later, I came into the pits and headed straight to check the timings. I had bettered my time by a whole 2 seconds even after the disastrous start but it wasn’t easy getting there.

ot waiting for a millisecond after getting the green light, I zoomed off to be the first rider to be flagged off and in doing so, have the entire MMRT to myself for at least the first lap. From turn 1 it was pretty apparent, taming this bike would require much less effort, thanks to it being lighter and generally more compact. With around the similar levels of modifications made to the 150, I estimate the weight to be around the high 120kg mark, similar to those of some 125cc commuters available in the market today. However, in order to keep speeds up, the rider has to be in the right gear at the right time. The engine starts feeling a little strssed in the longer sections of the track but it’s at the corners where it shines. Get up to speed and without hesitation, coupled to the phenomenal grip from the MRF Racing tyres, the rider can throw the 150R into a turn as fast as their skill set would allow. After a few laps, taking the parabola at C4, I came to the conclusion, while I’d have to be wrestling the 250 into this turn, I can be so much more precise, maintain the right balance while maneuvering and also leave less margins for error.

ith a bike that was born out of the result of some out-of-the-box thinking, I decided to put our little monkey bike through a wild experiment of my own. You see, the India Today Mediaplex cannot possibly be termed as cosy in terms of compound area. Deciding to recruit the services of the Navi, I wanted to use a bike throughout the day, outside office and inside as well! After the 2-day permission seeking ordeal, I finally got the green light. After reaching the office, I entered the gates and went straight through the back door, making way through the canteen and into the lift. Quite a breeze that turned out to be with the 748mm width. Later scooting in the 1805mm long scooter inside the lift, it wasn’t able to back in straight but fit snug using a single trick manoeuvre. On the second floor, with a little help from a colleague, the 101kg scooter was easily lifted over the electronic barriers and stood right by my desk. The story of its compactness is pretty much the same everywhere. You’ll be able to squeeze through practically any traffic gap or duck under(over) most barriers. You will even be parked closer to the mall or local restaurant than your average scoot. With a standalone house, park it indoors everyday too. However, the size of that petrol tank! I could have really have used a fuel gauge just before I emptied my 3.8-litre tank on my way to work last week. The Navi has been losing points as a daily commuter for your regular millennial but gaining quite a few as a fun and quirky runabout for the weekends. I’m always in two minds about the Navi. Always calculating, “ will I have the fuel to socialise with friends before going home after work?”

or a commuter like me (or others like me) who travel roughly 50km plus per day, one of the most important deciding factors before buying a bike is comfort. While there is little one can do to reduce congestion, one can surely choose a bike wisely. So is the Victor 110 that wise choice? Let’s find out. The seat to start with is quite comfortable. It is wide enough and there is ample support too. It eliminates the need to shift every now and then which in turn means that it reduces fatigue. It is also well cushioned and is neither too soft and neither too hard. The single seat unit is also long enough to allow space for two in comfort. The second aspect is the grab rail. While split rails are good for sporty bikes, on commuters like the Victor 110 a conventional unit serves the purpose better. Moving on to the riding posture which is usually governed by the handlebar and foot pegs. On the Victor 110, the handlebar is positioned just ride. It is wide enough to aid easy maneuverability and at the same time the switch gear is positioned within reach. Foot pegs are wide units too and one can comfortably ride for long distances without fatigue setting in. So overall, the Victor 110 is a good option if you are looking at a comfortable commuter.

’m proud to be riding the Indian Motorcycle of the Year as my longtermer too. But this did come as a surprise. A pleasant one indeed as hype and attention towards other new products launched in the last year took away limelight from the Apache RTR 200. But the fact that it still won, is a testament to the engineering capabilities of the boffins at TVS. This was a much needed product for the company and they made sure it packs exactly what the Indian enthusiast on a budget needs. A do-it-all quick little motor, the Apache RTR 200 has been quite an exciting and impresively versatile motorcycle. A few highway trip later, it was time to put a few kilometers in the city. The Apache has been in and out of action since last reported. The braking issue accelerated till a point where the lever for the front brake was going down to the lever under heavy braking. Nearly becoming unsafe, TVS was called for a once over of the front brake system. The pads still had a lot in them so bleeding the lines to let out trapped air and a general checkup was all that was required. Braking performance is back to normal but I’d still prefer the bite to come

The resonated exhaust is a delight as it keeps to a gentle roar at highway speeds and an aggressive note operating in the mid-range within the city

in much earlier, instilling better confidence especially while braking hard. There is still a lack of feel at the lever too. The narrower powerband has also kept me within the city confines than the highway. It is where the RTR 200 is the most suitable and can prove to be quite the hooligan. Meaty mid-range power delivery simply kept me wanting to stay in that range, thus resulting in slightly aggressive riding. The lower fuel efficiency figure is thanks to that but not that I’m complaining.

18 vehicles lined up at the start line at Asunción, Paraguay for the start of the 39th edition of the legendary Dakar Rally of 2017. Of these, there were 97 motorcycles, 22 quads, 63 cars and 38 trucks - a total of 220 vehicles managed to finish the gruelling rally in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Only between the two cities, there was 9,000km of ruthless natural stages and nearly half of that distance were 12 timed special stages. This was also the first time that the rally will climb up till 5,000 metres above sea level in the Andes en route till Bolivia. Yes, the third country that participants will traverse in this 14 day long event. Another first was a factory Indian team participating. We were introduced to Hero MotorCorp’s motorsport division Hero MotoSports earlier this year where we got a glimpse of the Speedbrain 450 Dakar machine and the riders for this year. India’s finest rally rider, CS Santosh made his third appearance at the Dakar but first with a factory team. Hailing from Portugal, Joaquim Rodrigues was a rookie for the massive rally. With confident finishes in the Merzouga Rally and Oilibya Rally of Morocco the team was optimistic about their performance at this year’s Dakar. The team’s debut and optimism paid off with team effort and hard work that saw Santosh finish at a creditable 47th. But the surprise performer was Rodrigues who battled though the stages consistently

Apart from sheer pace and exceptional technique, rally riding depends a lot on navigating skills. Stage 3 saw the maximum number of riders lose their way. Santosh lost an hour dropping him from 37th to 67th overall
