THE MARUTI SUZUKI S-CROSS HAS a very prominent role to play in the larger scheme of things for India’s largest car manufacturer. It was the first car model to make its début at the upmarket Nexa outlets, helping the predominantly mass car-maker to carve out a niche in the premium range of cars. In the last five years, over 1.1 million customers have driven out in brand-new cars from the 370-plus Nexa showrooms. Not an easy feat and only a brand like Maruti Suzuki could have pulled this off. Back then, the S-Cross was available with two diesel engines: 1.3-litre and 1.6-litre units. But now Maruti Suzuki have bid farewell to diesels and both these have been chucked out of the window. The 2020 model sports a 1.5-litre petrol equipped with…

a breath of fresh air

THE ENVIRONMENT HAS BEEN CONSTANTLY changing — and for the worse, as we’ve seen, whether or not we accept it yet. The pandemic and the global lockdown that followed soon after showed everyone that human intervention in the way of things, just by existing normally, can be hazardous to our own as well as the health of every other being that we share this planet with. In barely a few weeks of minimized activity — not even a complete shutdown — the earth showed dramatic change. The sky cleared up, air quality improved, the rivers ran cleaner, and more species not seen for long resurfaced. That also pushed some people to think. What is really necessary and what qualify as just wants. We cannot live without consequence and, as such,…

updated porsche panamera arrives

WHEN IT COMES TO FOUR-DOOR, SPORT-luxury tourers that can do it all, from mile-munching to track-days, few can stand comparison with the Panamera. The new model has a total of 12 variants across three body styles ― sports saloon, long-wheelbase “Executive”, and “Sport Turismo” estate. The Sport Design front end is standard with striking air-intakes and a single-bar light module. Inside, there are additional digital functions and services and an extensive list of safety features. The line-up begins with the new Panamera powered by the 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 with 330 hp and 450 Nm, paired to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic and rear-wheel drive.

gordon murray t.50

GORDON MURRAY, THE MAN behind the McLaren F1 and more lightweight, high-performance super sports cars, has had something equally light and powerful up his sleeve for a while. The T.50 is the proper successor to the McLaren F1 and this time there’s an even more intoxicating naturally aspirated V12. The T.50 builds on the essence of its iconic predecessor ― the central driver’s seat with two passenger seats aft on either side. The familiar side-windows now use thinner glass that saves weight. The design is sleek, but reminiscent of its forebear and also has a fair amount of luggage capacity. Vision: With the goal of a sub-1,000-kg vehicle weight, Cosworth proposed an engine of just 3.9 litres. Throwback to the late-1960s Italy? Well, it’s more than 50 years later and the numbers are…
