There is no safe way to increase GC. Upsizing tyres or using spacers will disturb the handling and alter the gearing of the car. If you have the petrol Swift, one solution is to use the suspensions of the diesel Swift as they are stiffer. But a downside is that the ride will become bouncy. You can also use the diesel Swift’s springs and retain the…[Read more]
Just add 1inch spacers into the rear suspension. Its a 30mintune exercise that costs Rs500 in the market. The ride quality will become a bit stiff and bouncy. But the car will not bottom out, even when loaded.
It should do it, considering the fact that people have been there successfully in cars like the Maruti Alto.
Y not..Tata Vista can definitely go long miles if u drive it properly…and maintain it too
Its not only about driving it !! i am asking this because of its low GC… Roshun can you throw some light on it
if polo can go then indica vista will go with ease………..
At 165mm GC will not be an issue untill the car is fully loaded with family and loads of bags….
Easily Mani, the Indica is high enough to tackle any kind of road as long as the road doesn’t require 4WD. In fact, on the route that you have in mind, Rohtang is the toughest part and you might need to make your passengers (if there are 4) get down at places to help the car get through. This apart, the Indica will easily complete this trip.
Yes yes, many people have done it. Even the Nano has done it.
Yes, you can go to Ladakh and back in an Alto. I know of a person who has done that, and I also know a guy who set a record taking the Tata Nano to Ladakh (including Khardungla) and back without any trouble. Just be really careful on the broken sections of the road.
No plans from Maruti for a diesel Gypsy. We’ve checked with them a few times. They were contemplating the Jimny for India at one point, but now they are focussing on the XA Alpha instead, which will be Maruti’s flagship compact SUV in India. It will come with petrol and diesel engine options.
I so wish that the Gypsy was re-launched with some upgrades to its suspensions and the 1.3L MJD in the VGT 90BHP trim would have worked just fine. Maybe MS needs some inspiration from the Mahindra Thar for a change.
You get customized exhausts from companies like Automech, which add that sporty note and a bit of power (free-flow exhausts). On a lighter note – remove the muffler (not recommended)
@Mani: While adding a loud exhaust might sound exciting till you have done it, it actually gets on your nerves and irritates others on the street, in your neighbourhood and the occupants in the car if they are the “loudest” like you have mentioned. The world is already noisy enough, so decide judiciously.
hey roshun… why not only removing the muffler nota good option… secondly if a free flow exhaust is added.. what are the pros and specially the cons
i own it…. its a gem
Hi Mani, the Duster has a mileage of between 10-12 kmpl while the Ertiga has a mileage of 13-14 kmpl. When we tested the Ertiga I think we got a little over 13.
the duster delivers a mileage of 15+ in the city my personal experience with it
Look wise the Renault Scala has an advantage , especially the at the rear , small changes such as , reshaped rear bumper , tail lights and the chrome stripe on the boot lid has made a lot of difference .
both pulse and scala’s rear is much better than sunny and micra
Scala all the way! Reanult’s got some quite competent cars in its profile. All it needs to prove is that it can provide good A.S.S. also. *Fingers Crossed*
Nisan Sunny… Itz Caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrr… But scala Scaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar…:P
Sunny..I love it
the infotainment system’s display quality seems to be quite poor.
