Review: 2018 Ford Aspire review, test drive
What is it? Ford has taken its time updating its compact sedan, the Aspire. The good news, however, is that it has done a pretty thorough job. It looks more grown up now, that's for sure, what with its more sophisticated headlight and grille combo. Ford has used a lot more bling in the nose, and with the lower part of the chin finished in black, the new Aspire looks sportier too. There aren’t many changes to the rear except for the redesigned bumper, but what Ford has done is upped the wheel size; top-spec Aspires now run on 15-inch alloy wheels shod with 195/55 R15 tyres. The bigger multi-spoke alloys have a simple yet classy design and the wheels now look more proportionate. Also new are the petrol engines and gearboxes (all three). The previous 88hp, 1.2-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine has been replaced with the new 96hp, 1.2-litre, three-cylinder 'Dragon' petrol engine; first seen on the Freestyle. While this engine packs more power, Ford also claims it is more efficient by 2.24 kpl; a considerable amount. In addition the previous 110hp, 1.5-litre petrol has also been replaced by a more powerful 123hp, 1.5-litre petrol (the same three-cylinder Dragon engine that powers the EcoSport). And this time it gets the same auto ‘box as the Ecosport as well; a 6-speed torque convertor unit (used in place of the earlier twin-clutch gearbox). What carries on unchanged, however, is Ford's very tractable and strong 100hp, 1.5 diesel (codenamed Tiger). If it ain't broke, why fix it? Apart from the cosmetic updates and new engines, there are also many changes to the equipment list. Important additions include a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system (finally), two USB ports, an auto-dimming inside rear view mirror (IRVM), auto headlamps and wipers, and a rear parking camera with sensors. What's it like on the inside? Step inside the car and you are greeted by the familiar two-tone black and beige dashboard. The major change on the inside is the addition of the 6.5-inch touchscreen with Ford’s Sync 3 system on the top-of-the-line Titanium+ cars. The unit is seamless in operation, very responsive and offers a level of slickness similar to that of most smartphones. The interface is intuitive and easy to understand, the display goes bright enough for even drives across a desert and what enhances the experience manifold, is the presence of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Even connectivity has been enhanced with with an improved Bluetooth system and an extra USB slot (Titanium+ only). And if you look closely, the dials have now been upgraded too. They now get a carbon fibre like texture; much nicer than the plain looking earlier dials.   With its new rubberised screen control knobs and additional chrome, the cabin has been given a bit of a lift too. The piano black surfaces, carried over from the earlier car, add to the premium feel, there are no badly built bits and most of the plastic bits feel hard wearing. Quality levels are a step down on those seen inside the cabin of the Dzire, and what the Ford also lacks is that sense of space the Maruti cabin delivers. The Aspire's cabin is as practical as ever, especially up front. The door pockets are very accommodating and smartly designed to keep bottles of all sizes, the glovebox is massive and there's even a nicely executed stowage area between the seats where you can keep all sorts of odds and ends. Overall visibility from the driver’s seat is good. Even tall drivers can find a comfortable driving position quite easily and the wide front seats provide good under-thigh and shoulder support as well. Also, importantly, the seats are both soft enough, as well as firm enough, to be comfortable over both long and short drives. Legroom in the rear is good as well due to the Aspire's long wheelbase (the longest in its class) and the seat, though not as good as some rivals, offers good support and a nicely reclined backrest. Headroom is tight for passengers who are above six feet tall though.  What’s it like to drive? The new 1.2-litre naturally aspirated three-cylinder Dragon engine made its debut in the Freestyle and here comes mated to a new 5-speed manual transmission. Producing a very strong 96hp, the highest among petrol-manual compact sedans, the engine is surprisingly smooth and silent for a three-cylinder unit at low revs. In fact, unless you are aware of it, this engine feels as smooth as four-cylinder unit. Low engine speed performance still is a bit lackluster. Yes, it does feel marginally better than the earlier 1.2 at low speeds, and that is important, but it still isn't as responsive as it should be below 2,000 or 2,500rpm. And what makes it worse, is that low speed pulling power isn't great either. This means you either stay in a low gear or be prepared to shift up and down the box often in traffic. Luckily, t [...]

Tata Harrier diesel engine details teased
Another day and another set of details from Tata Motors on its upcoming Harrier SUV. The latest communication from Tata Motors is centred around the Harrier’s engine. The engine has been christened the Kryotec. Tata says the name is inspired from ‘the Cryogenic rocket engine known for its power and reliability’. Tata Motors hasn’t revealed exact engine displacement or power and torque figures but as is widely known the engine is derived from Fiat’s four-cylinder Multijet 2.0 unit that powers the Jeep Compass. The engine will produce around 140hp on the Harrier though a larger seven seat version of the SUV that is due later will come with the 170hp version of the engine like that on the Jeep. On the Harrier, the engine will come with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard and will also be offered with the option of a Hyundai-sourced six-speed automatic. Without delving into the finer points Tata Motors says the Harrier’s engine will feature an electronically controlled variable geometry turbocharger, a low friction valve train and an advanced EGR system. The engine, says Tata Motors, is benchmarked against global standards for performance and refinement.    Tata Motors has also confirmed the Harrier will comes with multiple drive modes that will work in conjunction with ‘Terrain Response Modes of the ESP’. The Harrier will be built on Tata’s Omega Arc platform that has its roots in Land Rover’s D8 architecture, so it’s safe to expect all-wheel drive-equipped Harriers to be competent off-road. Tata Motors has already teased the design and styling of the new SUV and shared details of what to expect on the inside too. The production-spec Harrier itself has been caught testing repeatedly just about everywhere, in the Himalayas and even at the Kari Motor Speedway. The Tata Harrier is set to go on sale in January 2019, and will take on the upcoming Kia SP-based SUV and Nissan Kicks, in addition to the Hyundai Creta and Renault Captur already on sale. From what you’ve seen so far, do you think Tata’s Harrier has the right ingredients? Let us know in the comments section below.   ALSO SEE: Tata Motors reveals Harrier development details Tata Motors confirms harrier bookings yet to open Tata Harrier: 5 things to know   [...]
