Answers for this Question
i have taken a test drive i liked the vehicle. Engine is not so refined like Dezire or Hyundai Xcent. but over all pickup is good . i selected this vehicle only because of good ground clearance all good features in XMS Petrol and the good space. It should be value for money. Since volume of cars on road is very less i am in double mind. Other options are XCENT and AMAZE . These vehicles are good for city purpose. i normally travel 3-4 times in a year to konkan region where roads are in bad shape in certain areas and you need good ground clearance . considering all facts i have selected the Tata ZEST. i have used TATA Bolt Diesel version for 1 year and it has excellent performance. I hope i have selected the correct car

  • which fuel is better for automatic transmission

    Published On :Oct 26, 2016 By Arun

    Transmission has nothing to do with fuel type. Engine configuration is actually what matters. 

    The different types of automatic gearboxes for cars available in India now are the traditional torque converter type and the newer types of automatic gearboxes like AMT (Automated Manual Transmission), Dual Clutch Transmission or DCT Automatic and the CVT automatic gear (Continuously Variable Transmission).

    The fuel economy of new generation automatic cars are as good as, if not better than manual transmission cars. The regular automatic cars have Torque Converter type automatic gear transmission which does have a slightly lesser mileage.

    Which one will be better? It is a matter of personal preference. The points which are covered below will help you to take a final decision. 

    There are several advantages of an automatic car over a manual transmission car. The main advantage of an automatic car is the driving comfort. This driving comfort of an automatic car in a traffic jam has to be experienced for you to know what you have been missing. No more being so tired while driving through the constant traffic jams in the Cities of India, because you do not have to be pressing the clutch and changing gears all the time.

    Apart from the driving comfort, the other advantage of automatic cars is that the maintenance cost of an automatic gear car could be lesser than a manual car over the lifetime of the car. This is because the gears are changed automatically at the correct engine RPM and speeds and the driving is always very smooth without any jerks. This contributes to longer life of the drive train parts of the car including longer tyre life.


    Driving a vehicle with a CVT is a very different experience and many drivers to not like it because you do not feel the engine accelerating; you do not feel any shifts instead you feel the engine racing as it would with a slipping clutch or a failing transmission which is just the CVT adjusting to provide optimal power.

    Advantages and Disadvantages of a Manual Transmission: 


    1. Easier to maintain: Since they are less complex than automatics, there is less of a chance for something to go wrong. The clutch is the only item that generally needs repair, but for the most part that isn't needed for hundreds of thousands of miles.

    2. Use of gear or engine oil: This fluid deteriorates less quickly and doesn't require frequent changes.

    3. Cheaper: In general, brand-new stick shift vehicles are cheaper than their automatic counterparts.


    1. Difficulty on hills: Stopping on a hill and starting again can be inconvenient as well as scary. Since the vehicle rolls back, drivers have rolled into traffic or stalled.

    2. Pain from the clutch. Your left leg will be in constant use when driving a stick shift car. Over time, it can mess with the joints in the leg.

  • is touch screen player is good one or manaual is good

    Published On :Oct 22, 2016 By Arun

    Hey, it is a matter of personal preference or choice, still, touchscreen is more convenient. There are many advantages if you have a touchscreen media infotainment in your car.  

    Fantastic looks are a great starting point, but there's much more that you can get.
    You can see all the information you need at a single glance, making it easier to keep your eyes on the road. You’ll also have expansion options like navigation and a rear-view camera available to you in the future.

    With a large screen acting as your receiver's display, it's a whole lot easier to read than the 2- or 3-line displays of typical car receivers. You'll enjoy being able to read more information about what you're listening to. Bigger icons, split-screen capability, and more screen real estate add up to a satisfying car audio experience. You'll be able to keep your eyes on the road a whole lot better if you're not squinting at your display, or waiting for the info to scroll by. In fact, everything you do with your receiver is easier when you have a large, touchscreen interface. Here are some examples of how these receivers can make your drive much easier.

    Bluetooth usability

    Bluetooth lets you enjoy hands-free conversation using your compatible phone. You’ll be able to see caller information instantly with a big screen in your dash, so you can keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. Some receivers also allow audio streaming from phones.

    GPS navigation

    Get a better map view than phones or most portable navigators can deliver. And if your receiver doesn’t feature built-in navigation, you might be able to add guidance with an outboard unit, or connect to an iPhone app like MotionX-GPS Drive that works over 3G signals.

    Convenient control

    One of the main advantages of any big-screen receiver is the ease of going through the menus. Whether you’re looking for a song on your iPod, a favorite satellite radio station, or the EQ settings, a big, colorful touchscreen makes finding functions intuitive and simple.
