    Ford Motor Company's new premium 7 seater SUV, the Equator has been leaked online. The much awaited new SUV is all geared up for launch in the coming months in China with bookings to be opened early next year. The Ford Equator is exclusively built for the Chinese market.

    Manufactured under the Jiangling-Ford joint venture, this new large SUV will rival the Hyundai Palisade, Toyota Highlander and the Jeep Commander. The details, specifications and other details of this new SUV have surfaced online on a Chinese social media platform.

    The new Equator has a unique front end with a wide grille with honeycomb

    inserts, resembling the MG Gloster/Maxus D90. The SUV features a set of small headlights on top with integrated daytime running LEDs while the actual headlamps are placed just above the air intakes.

    The rear features horizontal LED tail lamps connected by a thick LED strip running across the width. The bold Equator lettering on the tailgate is mounted in the middle below the Ford badge. There are also twin tailpipes and a subtle faux diffuser.

    According to the leaked documents, the SUV has a length of 4,905 mm (193 inches), with a width of 1,930 mm (76 inches), the height of 1,755 mm (69 inches) and a 2,865 mm (113 inches) wheelbase.

    The Ford Equator SUV will be available with a 2.0-litre EcoBoost four-cylinder petrol engine mated to either a five-speed automatic transmission or a five-speed manual transmission. An all-wheel drive configuration is also expected on the top-end variants.

    The new Ford Equator SUV will be launched early 2021. Stay tuned for further updates.


    While there weren’t any significant players that could knock it off, the tech savvy world is difficult to keep up with. Not too difficult for new cars as they come up with updated tech. So naturally, it is important to keep up with fight competition and Hyundai has done just that. Launched in March this year, the new Creta not only looks different but also comes with updated tech, new features, new engines and much more!

    Exterior:
    Starting from the front, the new Creta gets new LED DRL’s, new triple beam headlamps and a typical new- gen huge front grill. The side profile looks beefier

    but the 17- inch diamond cut profile wheels gives a sort of a geeky vibe. The LED striped tail lamps at the rear and a twin ‘tip’ exhaust give it a very different look, obviously. We personally think the looks of the Creta 2020 are a bit average. While it has a muscular feel to it, there are elements that make it seem low key and toned down. A combination that is quite difficult to make it a success.

     

    Interior:
    The inside of the new 2020 Creta is more interesting. The top of the line variant gets a mix of while and black while the Turbo GDI variant gets all Black interior with red highlights. A refreshed dashboard, 10.25 inch infotainment touchscreen system, a 7 inch instrument panel, a panoramic sunroof, wireless charging, air purifier, a TPMS system, a cooled glove box, LED reading lamps, a BOSE audio system, raise- able sun blinds, a new steering wheel takes this car to a whole new level in this segment in terms of the ambience it offers.
     

    2020 Hyundai Creta Price and variants:

    The variants of the Creta 2020 are well spread out. Starting from the E variant, EX, S SX, and SX(O) at the top, prices begin from 9.99 Lakhs Ex- showroom and go upto 17.20 Lakhs. While it does seem like a competitive price especially in the mid variants, the top variants go a tad higher. The car comes in many colors though- 10 of them!

     

    Engine and power:

    The 2020 Hyundai Creta comes with three BS6 engine options- a 1.4-litre Kappa Turbo-GDi petrol engine that produces 140PS and 242Nm of torque. In typical Hyundai style, it is mated to a 7-speed DCT gearbox. The second petrol engine option is a 1.5-litre MPi motor that produces 115PS and 144Nm of torque, paired to a 6-speed manual transmission unit or a CVT gearbox. The third option is a 1.5-litre U2 diesel engine that produces 115PS and 250Nm of torque, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter unit.

     

    While Kia Seltos, Tata Harrier and MG Hector have been making the competition in this segment pretty melodious. The 2020 Creta with its features and price has been making the right kind of noises.


    Tata’s Nexon EV is a pretty muscular SUV that comes packed with an IP67 waterproof 30.2kWh Lithium Ion battery delivering 127.0 BHP to the front wheels and along lot of torque. 245nm to be specific. Underpowered will definitely not be a description when someone drives it. What comes with power though? A reduction in mileage. But since this is powered by an electric motor, you can charge it even while decelerating/ braking. Thanks to its regenerative braking feature which can be toggled between varying levels depending upon the amount of regen one prefers.

    As a result, this is an excellent package

    for the city because all we do is start stop repeatedly until we arrive at our destination. In case you’re wondering about fast charging. The batteries on the Tata Nexon EV will charge from 0% to 80% in an hour. That’s excellent because these days, you never realise how time flies. A couple of phone calls, check your social media notifications, a loo break, a short tea/coffee break and you would’ve spent way over 60 minutes already! Also, the Nexon EV comes with an ARAI certified full charge range of 312 kilometres which should take care of… a week’s commute?

    The Nexon EV carries over many things from the Fossil Fuel powered older version of the Tata Nexon like drive modes and an overall feel of the cabin. But some instances like the front profile, rear bumper changes and colour are totally new. Frankly speaking, we like this new look of the Nexon as it looks more modern, more muscular and more SUV- ish. Small highlights to its design give a feel that the manufacturer took the looks of this car quite seriously.

    Coming to some dimensional numbers- the length of the car is just under 4 metres, it seats 5 people quite comfortably, has a generous boot space of 350 litres and with a ground clearance of 205mm, you could go over almost any obstacle without frowning. 

    Speaking of the cars multimedia features and what it has to offer in terms of comfort- well, we’ve seen Tata check most boxes earlier in the older Nexon as well. Naturally, the Nexon EV too would get loads of features. The top end variant XZ Plus LUX which costs around 16 Lakhs Ex-showroom packs a sunroof, a 7 inch touch screen infotainment system, Projector headlamps, LED tail lamps, cornering fog lights and all the other Nexon goodies.

    In the safety department too, there are no compromises. Tata has been repeatedly proving that safety does matter to them. In the Nexon EV, you get ABS, EBD, 2 Airbags, vehicle stability control system, ISOFIX Child seat mounts and much more, which sort of does add to a lot of confidence when one drives the car. However, the addition of side and passenger airbags would’ve made this package a perfect one.

    In terms of the drive and feel, this feels like a comfortable, hassle free automatic car (since it has no gears) while not completely alienating you from the Internal combustion feeling. Thanks to its regenerative braking. You do get a new world feeling when you look at the new instrument cluster and the fact that the Nexon EV won’t have to go through periodic oil changes and other service compulsions that the Internal Combustion Nexon would have to go through.

    To conclude, the Nexon EV has made quite a mark in the electric car scenario in India. With a competitive pricing and a package that has almost all things covered including safety, what else can one ask for?
