Maruti Suzuki Baleno is a top-selling hatchback in India. The premium hatchback gets many lifestyle features but misses out on the sunroof. In fact, none of the vehicles from this segment offers a sunroof in India. Here is a Baleno with a panoramic sunroof and it looks quite cool. Panoramic sunroofs are limited to only high-end luxury SUVs and cars. The sunroof seen here is done by an aftermarket sunroof supplier known as Webasto. The long and wide roof almost covers 75% area of the roof, which is quite a lot. This video shows the operation of the sunroof and how it opens and closes. The roof itself is made up of fabric and is not a solid one. It is something that many convertible cars get as the roof. The interior part is similar to the roof carpet fabric and it blends with it quite well. Webasto says that the synthetic outer cover is waterproof and there is a metal sheet under the outer layer that makes the roof very durable and sturdy. The metal plates also give the roof a different … [Read more...] about India’s first Maruti Baleno with a panoramic sunroof is here!
SUV’s are all the rage, every now and then we hear news of new SUV’s launching and capturing market’s share. Manufacturers are in a rat race, using their best strategies to appeal to the Indian audience. Ford India’s Endeavour was quick to gain success when its first avatar was introduced in India. The butch-looking ladder frame SUV was an attention grabber. In 2016, Ford launched the highly revised version of the Endy to give a tough fight to its competitors. This time too the magic worked and Ford did garner an impressive response for the Endeavour. For 2018, Ford India has launched the refreshed Ford Endeavour. The update is strictly limited to a panoramic sunroof. According to Ford, this added feature might add some zing to the mighty Endeavour and strengthen its value. The sunroof will be equipped on the 2.2L variant of the Endy.The 2018 Ford Endeavour 2.2L is priced at INR 29,57,200 and will continue to offer outstanding comfort, rideability, advanced … [Read more...] about 2018 Ford Endeavour Sunroof Wish Full Filled By Manufacturer – Know Specific Details
Launched in January 2016, Ford Endeavour created a massive stir in the premium SUV segment that was ruled by the Toyota Fortuner till then. Aiming to gain an upper hand in its fierce rivalry with the Jap brand, Ford has made a prominent addition to the feature list of the Endeavour 2.2-litre Titanium trim which now comes with electric panoramic sunroof. Apart from the Fortuner, the American SUV rivals the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, Isuzu MU-X and Skoda Kodiaq.The Ford Endeavour is available in Trend and Titanium variants (powered by a standard 2.2-litre 4-cylinder fuel burner) with the latter coming with an option of a more-powerful 3.2-litre diesel engine. Until now, panoramic sunroof was exclusive to the top-of-the-line 3.2-litre Titanium trim but the much-hyped feature has now made its way to the 2.2-litre Titanium trim as well. Apart from that, there are no changes in the equipment list, which is quite expansive to begin with.While the Endeavour range starts at Rs. 25.64 lakhs, the … [Read more...] about Ford Endeavour 2.2-Litre Titanium Now Gets Panoramic Sunroof
After what seemed like a bit of a lull, the midsize luxury SUV segment has seen a couple of really interesting launches lately - namely the Volvo XC60 and the Lexus NX200h. Now, Audi is seeing if they can up the ante with a newer version of the very popular Q5. The Audi Q5 used to follow the Goldilocks principle to the T: it was neither too small nor too big - just the perfect size for the city while not sacrificing much in terms of space. It wasn’t what you would describe as a beautiful SUV, but its design was likeable at the same time. The engine choices, at least by the end of its life cycle, were more about sensible motoring than outright performance or efficiency. The Q5 could also handle both tarmac and rough roads with equal ease, adding to that ‘just right’ formula. Now though, Audi claims the new Q5 is better in every way. It was a cool afternoon in Kishangarh, the ‘marble city of India’, where a … [Read more...] about 2018 Audi Q5: First Drive Review
We joke, but there’s many among us — even here at TTAC — who would love to see the full-size sedan segment return to its former glory. Ford can ditch this EcoSport idea and get back to building Galaxies and LTDs and Fairlanes, Dodge can reintroduce the Monaco and Polara, and Buick can slot the Electra 225 above its current LaCrosse.Sadly, aficionados of the traditional passenger car, especially the largest class, are dwindling in the face of intense wooing from the crossover brigade. Once one discover what a high seating position and all-wheel drive can do for your life (and your confidence), one rarely goes back. Each year, fewer and fewer return for the LaCrosse.It is against this backdrop that the division’s flagship sedan debuts its newly luxurious Avenir trim. As the second model to wear the name of Buick’s premium sub-brand, can the new trim lift the model’s falling fortunes?The jury’s out on that, as it seems the Avenir … [Read more...] about The Price of Aveniring: Top-flight Buick LaCrosse Sees a Sticker Jump, But You’ve Already Stopped Reading This
Panoramic sunroofs: automakers love ‘em (or at least the premiums they bring), which is why they’re slapping them on everything from entry-level cars to luxury SUVs, and despite their often hefty price tags, buyers love ‘em, because they help give even claustrophobic interiors a bright, airy feel.But they aren’t without drawbacks. For one, all that glass is heavy in an era when engineers are trying to shave off fractions of an ounce here and there -- and what’s more, the extra weight is way high up in the car (exactly where you don’t want it to be if you’re trying to keep that center of gravity low). Then there’s the additional cost and complexity of a retractable hardtop’s servos and motors and whatnot.Oh, and you might also launch out of the top of the car in a rollover, which international regulatory bodies generally agree is Not a Good Thing.To solve the tiny little problem of driver and passenger ejection, Hyundai is testing a … [Read more...] about Hyundai’s new airbags might stop you from launching out of your panoramic sunroof in a crash
Like the past few years 2017 also saw a slew of SUVs get launched in the country. And I'm not even surprised my first review in the new year is that of an SUV, the all-new, 2018 Audi Q5. It is Audi's first launch this year and also probably its most strategic one. When it was launched in India originally in 2011, the Q5 was welcomed with open arms by buyers and was quick to succeed in the then nascent midsize luxury SUV segment. It propelled Audi India to the top of the luxury car game and considering that 2017 wasn't the best of years for it, Audi is keen on getting right back into the numbers game. We got a little taste of the second generation Q5 on Indian soil, after our exclusive drive earlier this year in the UK, and here's what we think. The second generation Audi Q5 looks leaner, sharper and more athletic What is it? The Audi Q5 needs no introduction as one of the most popular midsize luxury SUVs. The last generation model also performed excellently in terms of bringing in … [Read more...] about 2018 Audi Q5 35 TDI first drive review
Hyundai Mobis, the automotive parts division of South Korea’s largest carmaker, has announced that it has developed the world’s first panoramic roof airbag. The safety device is designed to prevent occupants from being ejected from the vehicle through the glass roof in the event of a rollover.Getting thrown out through a panoramic roof may not seem like such a big issue, but the market for these sunroofs is growing. According to P&S Market Research, the global market for panoramic roofs is estimated to be worth around six trillion won (RM22.4 billion) in 2015 and is expected to grow by an average of 11% per year until 2022.In a recent study, the United States’ National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that a total of 260 people in North America have fallen onto the roof of a vehicle in rollover crashes. Such incidences could cause severe injuries to the head and neck, among others.The airbag developed by Hyundai Mobis is inflated if sensors in … [Read more...] about Hyundai develops world’s first panoramic roof airbag
