Tips to increase car mileage

One common concern of drivers all around the world is fuel efficiency/ mileage. Regular car owners always look to  get the best efficiency out of their cars. What drives them is the simple fact that better good mileage means good savings. Though every vehicle comes with a standard mileage performance depending on its engine, it can be improved by following several driving techniques and car related practices. Especially in countries like India, mileage is a huge issue. Car makers often build models specifically for the Indian market with more efficiency than usual. if you are keen on saving a few bucks and cut down on your petrol station visits, you can consider the following tips.

  • Slow speed– cars deliver their best mileage when driven in 60 to 80 km per hour speed. Try to stick to this speed range as much as possible.. People often race their cars on the highway without knowing that going over this speed range reduces efficiency significantly. Frequent braking also affects fuel mileage
  • Smooth handling– while changing gears or giving throttle inputs try to as gentle as possible. Avoid pushing the accelerator with all your leg strength. Try slowing down well in advanced. If you keep your foot pinned with the pedal and then hit the brakes at the last moment, not only will it add wear and tear to your car components but will also reduce mileage.
  • Use the low gears– some drivers have this tendency of not downshifting at all. They even scale the road bumpers on a high gear. But it damages the car in the long run and also consumes extra fuel and affects the car’s mileage. Therefore don’t be shy in using the first gear.
  • Switch off at longer red lights- some traffic signals are longer than others and can stay red for few minutes instead of seconds. During such stops, turn off your car engine to stop unnecessary fuel consumption. But do not turn off if the time is less than 30 seconds.
  • Use the AC wisely- the use of car AC’s have increased because of the changing weathers. But your AC takes a lot of battery power and fuel. So unless it is absolutely necessary, try avoiding the use car AC.
  • Tire pressure- always maintain the proper tire pressure. Studies have proven that doing so can increase the mileage up to 3 percent.
  • Maintenance- if your car servicing is due, go for it today. A car that is not maintained properly will not give you good mileage. Regularly get your spark plugs, air filter and fuel filter checked.
  • Keep the car light- the heavier the car, the more fuel it uses. Therefore try to keep your car as light as possible. Don’t allow junk to accumulate and remove any unnecessary luggage.
  • Go for cold fuel- due to its properties, fuel gets denser when it is cold. Try to visit the petrol station early in the morning because if it is denser than normal you will get more fuel for the same volume. After filling your tank, carefully close the fuel cap so that no fuel is evaporated.
  • Cut down trips- avoid taking out your car for anything and everything. The fewer trips you take the more fuel you save.
  • Use the right fuel- there are various types of fuel available in the market. If you select a fuel that is not suited with your car’s engine, the mileage will decrease. It is better to use engine oil recommended by the manufacturer.
  • If your gearbox has a manual mode, use it more instead of automatic shift.
  • Do not waste time after starting your car by doing fastening seat belts; adjusting mirrors etc. Do these things before starting the engine.
  • If you have time in your hand, follow a large vehicle like bus or truck. You can drive more hassle free that way and use less fuel.

Toyota Innova Facelift Launched In India , details and features

Toyota is in the market for quite a while now and is amongst the leading car brands and manufacturers. The sports utility vehicles developed by Toyota are instant hit and the same case holds for the Toyota Innova.

The Toyota Innova is considered as the best family cars in Indian states and the first choice for everyone. Following the trend the brand decided to modify some features and upgrade it to a new model and here comes the all new Toyota Innova FACELIFT. The manufacturers believe that the success of previous versions forced them to upgrade it and the expectations are high for this new version as well. The GX, VX and z versions of the model get all makeover and cosmetic upgrades both inside and out whereas the G and EV versions will look like the previous versions. The Toyota Innova gets an eye catching look from outside but there are no sheet metal changes from the previous models. The outside structure has a new front grille and it is longer than the previous one. The Z and VX models have the fogs lamps in it. Apart from all this there are no major changes in the outside appearance. The Innova model is already good one and any serious changes would have made it a blunder. The interiors are almost same compared to the previous models and that is a big setback. Moreover there are no drastic changes and you even can’t notice then unless someone is pointing you the changes. There is wooden frame in the front panel which is hardly noticeable and a dual toned seat which is a mixture of leather is included. Apart from all this the model has a rear wiper, rear defogger, ORVM covers which are matching to the body cover, tachometer, trip meter, front lamp, 12v power socket, driver seat is adjustable accordingly, air-conditioned, air-conditioned vents, the steering is four stroke with tilt adjustments, power enabled windows, parking sensors, driver side airbags.

The Toyota Innova has been a good choice for most of the family but still hardly there are some sweeping changes compared to their ten year old design. You have to wait for the next version for some eye catching changes but before that you need to say Toyota has missed a big opportunity. The Z version looks totally unnecessary because after paying 54ooo extra over the VX variant the features included in it do not justify the price. Though the Toyota Innova has been the most appealing family cars but still these new models hardly have any appeal.

The price range for Toyota Innova GX variant ranges in between 12.45 lakh to 12.5 lakh. The VX version price shifts between 14.53 lakh to 14.58 lakh whereas the Toyota Innova Z variant is priced 15.07 lakh.

Maruti Wagon R new Stingray model- features and details

Maruti WagonR Stingray was born when Maruti decided to jazz up the existing WagonR model and add a touch of dynamism to it. The Stingray is thus a sporty variant of the Maruti WagonR. It has several new features compared to the WagonR and will most likely be positioned in the luxury car price segment unlike its old counterpart, the WagonR. WagonR Stingray shall be placed as a more aggressive vehicle when pitted against its counterpart WagonR due to its powerful design. It will be targeting a premium segment in the market. The model that will hit Indian markets will have a revamped grille design, new projector headlights and a set of different alloy wheels. Much like any sporty car, the color schemes used in this car are different too. There are several color contrast designs in the interior of the car that gives it a distinctive look. The only disadvantage that is likely to worry the Indian customer is the evidently lesser ground clearance. It is expected that the ground clearance will be less as the car gets a completely new muscular front and additional side lines. Ground clearance is one of the important factors that decide whether the car will be a success in the Indian market. The Stingray’s ground clearance clearly doesn’t look that much crafted for the Indian roads at the moment.

The features of the Stingray which distinguish it from the old WagonR are ample. Starting with the exteriors, we have new projector headlamps, which are a standard across all the variants as of now. We also have what Maruti likes to call a reflector grille. It is basically a chrome-ish plastic grille, a low cost solution that gives a premium look. The lower grille has been expanded and integrated into the front bumper. The B-pillar of this new model has been blacked out completely. The car also has side skirts. If you are opting for the VXi or the VXi (O) variant, you will get alloy wheels. Else there is a full wheel cover on the LXi variant. Body coloured bumpers and body colored door handles are a standard across all variants too. We also get body coloured ORVMs on the VXi (O) and VXi variants. There is a spoiler at the rear. There is also chrome garnished til-lamps and chrome badging right above the number plate holder.

The dimensions of this car are as follows : L x W x H in mm : 3636 x 1475 x 1670. This is in contrast to the Maruti WagonR which had the following dimension : 3599 x 1495 x 1700 (in mm). The wheelbase remains the same, that is 2400 mm. The ground clearance also remains the same, that is 165 mm. The kerb weight too has not increased as compared to the WagonR.

The powertrain remains unchanged in this new model. The Maruti Stingray derives its power from the same old K10B, 998cc, 3 cylinder petrol motor that motivates the WagonR. The output power and resulting torque figures are the same too – 67 BHP at 6200 RPM and 90 Nm at 3500 RPM. This engine is joined to a 5 speed cable type manual transmission gearbox, same as that of the WagonR. The Maruti Stingray has an ARAI certified fuel-efficiency of 20.51 KMPL, again reminding us of the WagonR.

The Pricing has been done as follows. The Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Stingray LXi has been priced at Rs. 4,09,999. The Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Stingray VXi will come for Rs. 4,37,999. And finally, the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R Stingray VXi (O) will set you back by Rs. 4,66,999.

Land Rover Freelander 2 S Business Edition in India Details

Land Rover Freelander 2 is by far the most economic Land Rover that is available in the Indian market. The 2S variant of the cheapest Land Rover is now even less expensive owing to a new low cost trim that has been attached to the vehicle. The new model has been named Freelander 2 S Business Edition. The nomenclature comes as a surprise as the car does not look or offer any corporate features.

With the introduction of this model, the Land Rover Freelander 2 will be available in three variants, that include the present ‘S’ trim alongside the SE and the HSE variants. This model replaces the SE variant as the cheapest Land Rover in the Indian market. The SE trim has a price tag of INR 39.19 lakhs. The HSE variant is available for INR 44.42 lakhs. The S Business Edition has been strategically priced at INR 37.11 lakhs. The lowering of cost has come at a price. It follows the philosophy of Audi as they too have cut down on costs with their ‘S’ version of the Q3 SUV by eliminating certain features. The features that have gone missing in the Freelander 2 S are the panoramic sunroof, meridian music system, reverse camera, electrically adjustable front seats and the premium exterior paint. Thankfully no safety features have been compromised. The usual safety features are present which include dynamic stability control, traction control, brake force distribution system, airbags, emergency brake assist, cornering brake control and roll stability control.
The engine power has been compromised. The new engine delivers a peak power output of 147 HP and 420 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 6 speed automatic transmission gearbox with CommandShift, which delivers the power to all the four wheels.
