PREVIEW : 12th Auto Expo 2014

Monday, 28 July 2014


The past few decades have witnessed an increasing demand for C- segment cars among people across the globe. The Corolla was Toyota's answer to this strong call for a good C-segment sedan. First introduced in 1966, the car emerged as the largest selling car across the globe by 1974. However, it took Corolla a few more decades and generations to make its Indian debut. But once introduced, the car gained immense popularity among the Indians. All the facelifts turned out to be well accepted. The car had thus been the uncrowned king of the segment till recent times when models like Hyundai Elantra and Skoda Octavia appeared at the scene with better looks, better equipment levels, and better drivability. These models almost threw the poor Jap out of the competition. So now, in 2014, Toyota has come up with the eleventh generation of the car to regain their lost reign in the segment. We, the AUTOGADGET team had a short drive of this new avatar, to find out if its worth your penny.

On the outside:

The 2014 COROLLA has undergone total make-over on the exterior as well as in the interiors. The car has really GROWN BIG now... It is now longer and wider than ever before. You can really feel the difference at the first glance itself.
 The front fascia now looks more sporty, yet premium with the abundance of chrome. Now take a second look and you will find chrome strips integrated even into the headlamp unit. The chrome plated grille now has Toyota's family grille design. The car now shows more influence of the Lexus brand in its overall design.

The headlamps have a magnificent design and get LED Projector beams with LED park lamps. The chrome strips in them add to their elegance.

The car also gets a pair of DRLs, which are well placed above the fog lamps.
The low bonnet with its prominent character lines and the new, redesigned bumper with the large air dam give the front fascia a sporty and aggressive look.

The sporty character is carried over to the sides by the bold lines and creases and of course, the prominent wheel arches. The rising shoulder line adds to this. You can find chrome strips on the doors too. Seriously, Toyota has shown no stinge in the use of Chrome. You can find it almost everywhere - shoulder line, door handles and even above the rain guard.
Add caption

Now you can't just object if one calls the new COROLLA's rear the prettiest one in the segment. It indeed is one of the prettiest ones in the segment. The rear design is simple, yet prepossessing.The new bumper with its cuts and creases along with the well sculpted tail lamps give the rear a premium look rather than an aggressive one. You can see the use of chrome in the rear too, the most prominent being the one that runs between the tail lamps.

Now if you take a closer look, you can see that the company has smartly integrated a rear fog lamp into the tail lamp unit on the right hand side.
We must say... the tail lamps are just brilliant with their LED lighting technology.

The new ALTIS rides on R15 (R16) Tubeless radial tyres. They now get an entirely new set of alloys, which look stunning and suits the overall design of the car very well. The car gets ventilated discs in the front and solid discs in the rear.
The paint quality is excellent.
To sum up, the new ALTIS looks pretty tempting on the outside and comes in 7 adorable shades.

The cabin:

Now when you open the door, the car welcomes you with its pleasant, eye cooling interiors. The dash has fully been redesigned. The interior now gets a black- beige dual tone color scheme.The new layout of the dash is simply smart. You wont find a sea of switches and controls here. Everything has been well placed with no compromise on the aesthetic front.


The dash is finished in a non-reflective black plastic and has a beige band running all the way from the left air vent to the right most one.You can also see a Silver strip, lining the beige portion. These give a premium feel to the interiors. It may also be noted that Toyota has totally avoided the use of faux wood in the cabin. The general fit is good. The plastic used is soft. But we don't think it is of the best quality in the segment. The AC vents at the centre have the classical rectangular design while the other two have a really cool design.The company has provided a digital clock , that sits between the two AC vents at the centre.

The new COROLLA comes with automatic AC and climate control. The controls of climate control are neatly arranged in the centre console,  below the entertainment system.You can easily beat the summer heat with the new COROLLA's powerful AC.
What you notice first when you look at the centre console is the touch screen interface of the entertainment system. It has USB and AUX connectivity and can also read memory cards.

The sound quality is above average even with the stock speakers.The screen also acts as the display for the reversing cam. The rear view camera along with the parking sensors makes parking tension free. The player also has provisions for telephony.
The screen comes with a tilt function too.

Toyota has provided a number of storage spaces in the car. The COROLLA has illuminated cup holders which will be of great use during night drives.
The gear knob is easily accessible.

The car offers two 12 V power supplies, one for the front row and one for the rear. You also get other features like vanity lamps, sunglass holder etc. The car also comes with illumination for the foot compartment of the front seats.  The side view mirrors are electrically adjustable and foldable. The company has provided an ECM for better visibility at night.

The 3-spoke steering wheel is chunky and offers good grip. The Silver inserts impart a premium feel to it.It gets audio and telephony controls on it.The overall design is good. But the qualities of plastic used for the audio controls and the one used for the wheel itself are not so impressive.

The meter console is simple and neat. The large RPM meter and Speedo give better visibility and these now go easier on your eyes with their blue illumination. There is a DIS display between the speedo and the tacho, which provides the driver with almost every essential information like efficiency, DTE etc. The company has used chrome  to highlight the meter console too.

The seats offer great comfort. The leather and its stitch are of superior quality.The driver seat is electrically adjustable.

The rear seat needs special mention. It is really cozy and offers ample thigh support. The increase in wheelbase now gets reflected in the interior as more space. The car offers best in class legroom for the rear seat. For further comfort, the rear seats can be reclined. And you wont find any central tunnel in this car. That makes it a pure 5 seater. The seats are 60:40 split foldable.

The back- seaters do get an armrest, but without audio controls on it.To add to the comfort, the car also offers a rear sunblind (manual).

The Boot:

And now, how many strolleys can it store in its boot? Well, as you can see the car offers a pretty good boot space.When put in figures, it is a massive 470L boot which we think, is more than enough for normal use.

To sum up, the 11th gen COROLLA is pretty good in terms of comfort and equipment levels.

Its Showtime... :
So now the question is... What is it like to drive this Japanese chick? Well here is what we felt:

The COROLLA despite having so many changes, haven't changed much under the hood. The petrol variant still has the same old 1.8 L 4 cyl petrol engine that puts  out 140 PS of power (6400 rpm) and 137 Nm (4000 Rpm) of torque. But this engine has now been modified for more efficiency and response. The 1.4 L D-4D Turbo Diesel engine, however has had no change at all and remains to be the same old "efficiency focused" one. It still delivers the same old 87 PS (3800 rpm)  of power and 205 Nm (1800-2800 rpm).Obviously, the petrol engine is more fun to drive. The petrol version also offers a CVT transmission on the top notch variant. This model gets paddle shifts too.

The car we got to drive was the top of the range diesel model ( D-4D GL ).

The new COROLLA comes with a smart key and push button start. A mere push of the button and the motor is up and running. While idling some noise and vibration do sneak into the cabin. These may be neglected as the car has a diesel heart.

The car did quite well initially, as we were driving it quite the classic way. But we found her struggling for breath once we started to play a bit rough on her.The small little motor does not always turn out to be up to the mark.And obviously, 87 HP cannot do wonders on a car that weighs somewhere around 1700 kg.

 You really feel the lag till the turbo kicks in at around 2000 rpm. Then the car performs well up to some 3500 rpm or so. After this, more engine noise and vibration penetrate into the cabin.
You wont feel much confident while overtaking. You will also have to work a bit with the gears for a smooth drive.You will have to shift down for overtaking, and use the higher ones for cruising on highways.
However the steering is neither too light, nor too heavy, but is well weighted and much more responsive than before. Thus the handling has improved a lot.The gear shift of the 6 speed manual transmission is precise.
The suspension of the new COROLLA is softer than that of the previous one.This makes the rear seat ride very comfortable. But on the other side, this soft suspension has badly affected the handling. You don't really  feel much confident at high speeds.
The braking is accurate.

And now...What is it like to have a ride in this car?:

Well, to put it simply, you will just be lost in its comfortable rear seat. The well cushioned rear seat with  abundant leg and knee rooms offer a great ride. The soft suspension just swallows the potholes and humps that you wont even know that you just came past them.The reclinable seat will not make long journeys tiresome.  But the ride at 3-digit speeds is not so comfortable for the rear passenger either.
Also it is a matter of surprise that the company has not cared to provide rear AC vents.

How safe is it?:

The new COROLLA offers all the basic safety features like ABS, EBD, and 2 Airbags. It also gets a Brake Assist system. So, obviously the car is promising on the safety front too.

How much does it yield per litre?

Well this is the most important question that needs to be answered as far as the Indians are considered. The new ALTIS gives you 14.5 Kmpl from its 1.8 L Petrol heart and a catchy 21.5 kmpl from its 1.4 L Diesel mill. Well these are quite impressive for a car of this segment.


  • Appealing exterior styling and interior layout.
  • Superior ride comfort at the rear.
  • More leg and knee rooms.
  • Better and more responsive steering.
  • Impressive efficiency.
  • Good Boot Space.
  • Good performance at the mid-range.
  • And most importantly, the trust on the brand and the perfect service offered by Toyota.

  • The tiny 1.4 Diesel mill is under powered. ( Toyota could have come up with a new petrol motor too.)
  • The car lacks rear AC vents.
  • The quality of the plastic used is not up to the mark.
  • The audio controls on the rear armrest are missing.
  • The diesel variant doesn't offer cruise control.
  •  The soft suspension has cramped the handling.
  • The diesel mill has a fair amount of lag.
  • The car has only dual airbags while rivals like Elantra offer up to 6 of them.
(Ex- showroom)

Diesel: 13.31 - 16.92 lakhs
Petrol: 12.23 - 17.13 lakhs


Now here's our final verdict on this car:
" If you prefer the back seat and want your car to be mostly chauffeur driven, then the new ALTIS would be a good option. You can also go for this car if you are not too performance oriented in driving. But if you are of the more enthusiastic type, who really are looking for a car that can "perform", seriously this one is not for you.
This car is for people who are looking for a pocket-friendly premium sedan."

0 Preview of 2015 Honda CR-V

Honda CR-V is one of the brand’s well known names, and can rank well among its good sellers, which is saying something, for a car that comes from Honda. The new version of the popular crossover will be made public sometime in the coming couple of months. However, several details of the new CR-V are known, and there is plenty of informed speculation to go around. You can expect several things from the 2015 Honda CR-V. While this mid-cycle refresh won’t turn the crossover completely, it will make some very interesting changes, while keeping several elements in their basic shape, to be carried forward from their predecessor.

Changes in appearance will most likely be an updated front and a classier rear fascia. The front will see two-slat grille with a mesh insert and chrome trims, a change from the broad three-grille style that is seen on the current CR-V. A more sculpted front bumper will highlight the now horizontal fog lights accentuated by chrome trim. HID lamps will take on a sleeker stance and will decrease in height.

The rear gets a reshaped bumper, and the mildly reshaped taillights will extend all the way to the roof. Wheels for the ride might also get bigger than the current 16-inch and 17-inch offering.

An update to the interior is in order too. Updates on the dashboard will make room for the Honda Link infotainment system, and other systems like the Apple CarPlay integration system. An upgraded infotainment system will make room for several adjustments and upgrades like connectivity for more speakers, Bluetooth integration, auxiliary audio jack, automatic parking and several other features. Future compliance with other systems will also be featured.

Seating will remain the same as the predecessors, to offer three rows that seat seven passengers. Platform for the crossover will remain unchanged, until it goes in for a complete overhaul and redesign in 2017 or 2018. It appears though, that the powertrain might undergo some changes. Honda will offer an engine upgrade on this version, taking the original 185-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine to the more modern and productive direct injection 2.4 liter four cylinder engine that provides 189 hp. This engine is already being successfully used in the Accord Sedan.

With the engine upgrade in order, Honda might be inclined to go for a transmission upgrade as well. The current five-speed automatic is certainly dated and will see itself getting replaced by a CVT.While the new model is making some cosmetic, and some significant changes, a drastic price change is unlikely. The 2015 model is very likely to have just a little bump on the price tag. Like the current system, there will be some trims for the car in the market, so price change for the base version would likely be minimal, with a widening margin towards the top of the line model.

Honda CR-V will show off its mid-cycle upgrade in 2015. While the changes are not expected to be drastic, there will be significant improvements though. This also gives Honda a chance to remove some dated offerings from the well-received crossover and add some new, modern features better suited for current times, both in infotainment and powertrain.

0 Volkswagen launches the 2014 POLO facelift in India

Volkswagen India, today launched the 2014 facelift of their hot hatch POLO in the Indian market. The German giant had entered the country's premium hatchback segment with this model in 2010. The car gained immense acceptance among the Indian buyers within a very short span of time. However with the entry of new more feature packed models, the polo began to find itself struggling for existance. So, to keep up the sales, the company gave minor facelifts in 2012 and 2013, even though they were mere gimmiks to lure the customers. But still, the results were not satisfactory. So now, in 2014, the company has come up with another facelift, which seems much more noteworthy ( We say this only when we compare the new one with the previous facelifts.)

Now lets see what's new in this car...
Well, the basic design of the car remains the same in the 2014 facelift as well. The company has refreshed the car, both on the outside and in the inside. The 2014 facelift gets fully redesigned front and rear bumpers. The front bumper now comes with a thick strip of chromium running all the way across the air dam which adds a more premium feel to the front. The company has retained the previous design of the grille, but has now replaced the three chromium strips with a single chromium lining. This has actually added to the aesthetics of the front. The changes in the rear bumper are restricted to the redesigned license plate carrier which is a bit larger now and the new reflectors. The new POLO gets an entirely new headlamp unit and a mildly tweaked tail lamp unit. The headlamp unit now sports a twin barrel beam with silver accents to the black reflector housings. This gives the car a sportier look. however it is a bit surprising that the company has made no attempt to offer DRLs in a country like ours, where people have them done even on their M800s and Nanos (although of little practical use). The new POLO gets an entirely new fog lamp unit with cornering lamps integrated in it. now thats something new, isnt it? And the company now offers  brand new 15" alloys ( or new wheel covers for lower trims).

1 The Lamborghini Legacy So Far: A Look Back at Our Top 6 Lamborghini's of All Time

Lamborghini was once a successful tractor make; now, Lamborghini is  fierce competitor to Ferrari and creates some of the best luxury sports cars in the world.

Although Ferrari are in fierce competition, and always will be; Lamborgini has a preference for creating wild jaw dropping cars that seek to push the limits, whereas Ferrari design cars of with sporting elegance in mind.

Both are admired by many, but it is Lamborgini that has come a long way since its tractor making roots. It was the success of Ferruccio Lamborghini’s tractor company that allowed him to indulge in his love of fast cars; a lover of Ferrari's, Ferruccio Lamborghini believed he could do better, and he did.

Since the creation of Automobili Ferruccio Lamborghini S.p.A in 1963, Lamborghini has created some truly iconic cars. Here are the best Lamborghini’s of all time:


The Lamborghini Espada was the best selling of all the early cars. It was created due to the lack of four seaters in the Lamborghini range and quickly made its mark. The car was introduced in 1968 and took the world by storm. It was powerful, yet comfortable and elegant. It features a 3.9 litre V12 and has 325 bhp.

Only 1,226 Espada’s were made and Lamborghini is still yet to create a follow up to the Espada despite its huge success.


The Miura was introduced in 1966 and was seen as the world's first supercar. The Miura’s engine was in the middle which set the benchmark for other supercars to follow, ultimately changing way sports cars were built.

The Miura quickly became the dream car for many people all over the world, however, Ferruccio Lamborghini wasn’t fond of the car as he believed it resembled a Ferrari too much.

It was powered by a 3.9 litre V12 and produced 350 bhp. It handled perfectly and its spectacular mechanical design, combined with its exotic looks certainly cemented Lamborghini on the map.

The Countach was first introduced in 1974. During this time, Lamborghini was making a loss on each car made due to the precise and technical engineering.  This didn't stop Lamborghini from creating one of the first sports cars to reach 200 miles per hour. As with the Miura, the Countach was designed by Marcello Gandini. The featured different engines. The engine was 4.0 litre - 5.2L V12 which was capable of producing 375-748 bhp.
The Countach is certainly an iconic sports car. The fact that it was illegal in the United states until 1982 highlights the power and ferocity of the unrepentantly angular powerhouse.
The Lamborghini Diablo was introduced in 1990. With Chrysler taking over Lamborghini in 1987, Chrysler pumped large amounts of money into the development of the Diablo. Between 1190 and 2001, a total of 284 Diablo’s were produced. It took the original design of the Countach and turned it into something beautiful. It was certainly a poster car for many teenagers.
The Diablo was powered by 5.7L V12 feeding its wheels which was capable of producing 492 bhp, and a top speed of 200 mph. All of this combined with stylish aerodynamics allowed the Diablo to accelerate from 0-60 in 4.5 seconds.
The Lamborghini Murcielago was introduced in 2001.The Murcielago was the ultimate supercar in Lamborghini’s range between 2001 and 2010. It was produced under Volkswagen and quickly became very popular and sold over 4,009 cars.
It was the first 4 wheeled supercar, which allowed it to accelerate from 0-60 in 3 seconds whatever the weather. Its V12 580 bhp engine has a top speed of 209 mph. Many variations were made of the Murcielago, all of which increasing in speed and performance.
The Gallardo was introduced in 2003 and was largely engineered by German car makers, Audi. Thankfully, Audi managed to preserve the values, mechanics and performance of the traditional Lamborghini's.
It was nicknamed the ‘Baby Lambo’ and was very impressive. The Gallardo became a stepping stone in the history of Lamborghini. Without it the company could have faced bankruptcy. The popularity of the Gallardo increased Lamborghini’s sales massively. It quickly became huge competition for Ferrari. With a 4.2 litre V12, the Gallardo produced 513 bhp and had a top speed of a staggering 250 mph.
The Gallardo became the most produced supercar Lamborghini has built. Its high speed and performance combined with a low price made it extremely popular, massively undercutting competitors, Ferrari.

1 Triumph's display held at Trivandrum

The largest British motorcycle manufacturer Triumph conducted a display of their models in Trivandum. The event was organised by Syamadyanamic Triumph which is the only Triumph dealership in Kerala. They displayed most of their variants in the expo. People were able to take a testdrive of the bikes. The different models lined up are Daytona 675R, Streettriple, Bonneville A3, Tiger 800 Explorer, Tiger XC and the Thunderbird Storm.

The major attraction was the Daytona 675R because the most of the visitors fell in love with this superbike. It was a Daytona 675R which has more features than the normal 675. It comes with brembo brakes and a sophisticated track-mode ABS system. It also have adjustable Ohlins suspension, carbon detailing etc. Daytona 675R have a 128 PS power and 74 Nm torque.

The Street Triple comes with awesome design. The 675 cc which produces an output of 106 PS and 68 Nm tourque is a better option who loves a Superbike along with a Roadster. The light weight gives the rider a razor sharp handling. The Bonneville A3 was the classic ride in their collection. The Spoke alloys makes it more fabulous. The Bonneville is the most selling bike of Triumph in Kerala.

In adventure series there were two models. Tiger 800 Explorer which comes with a 799cc engine that produces a power of 95 PS. Where as the Tiger Explorer XC has a 1215cc engine. The power was about 137 PS and 121 Nm torque. It has fog lamps and switchable ABS. A better option for offroaders.

 And the Thunderbird Storm was the real monster. Mean to the core with the biggest parallel twin ever fitted to a motorcycle at 1700cc makes the Thunderbird Storm extra ordinary. The 98 PS power and 156 Nm torque @ 2950 RPM is not a bad decision. The top model Rocket Roadster will join their showroom nearby. Triumph will be bring their expo to more places soon. Thanks to Shyamkrishna for inviting our crew member on this wonder occasion.
