Interiors have been upgraded and are made to suit the taste of car buyers here in India. You now have a dual tone dashboard with black and beige finish. In the center is a new touchscreen infotainment system, which will also be the most intuitive and advanced to be seen on a Toyota car in India. AC controls will have touch control, as we have seen in the Honda City.

While Alfa didn’t have anything big to debut this year, it did bring out the intense-looking Nero Edizione (aka Black Edition) package for both the Giulia and the Stelvio SUV. Frankly, both were hot looking before but this is a seriously tasty appearance package. Selecting the Nero Edizione pakage will net you black grille surrounds, mirror caps, window trim, badges, wheels and wheel caps as well as headlight bezels and some brake caliper color choices. The Stelvio also gets black roof rails and blacked-out rear fascia trim. No word on pricing but we expect to see it next year.
This one is easy…by a landslide. In 2007, I bought a 1997 Toyota Tercel with 120k on the odometer. My older sister drove it for a year before it went to my son as his first car. He drove it his last year of high school, then went off to the Air Force Academy. His first year there, he could not have his own vehicle, so I kept it for him, and drove it every day. His sophomore year, we had it shipped out to Colorado Springs, where the little white shoebox (we called her Tee-Tuu…kind of a play on it being my sister’s second Toyota) carried him around the region until taking him to Texas and then across country to Delaware (he could have had the AF ship it for him, but decided to drive it himself). Last month, the faithful little T2, now a family treasure, met an early and unplanned end when a semi tried to occupy the same lane as the Tercel. She had well over 250k on the original engine, clutch and transmission. There were exactly ZERO unscheduled maintenance requirements. Nothing, other than the need to replace the outside door handles from time to time. It all worked. No leaks, freezing A/C, 40 MPG and steadfast reliability. Until the accident, I was telling my son that I wanted the car back. She’ll go down as legend in the family for how trustworthy she was. Maybe not the fastest or most glamorous…but consider this. My son came out of the AF debt-free and could have easily afforded a nice, new car. Many of his pilot-friends did so. He refused to give up the Tercel.

b) I wouldn’t rate the 1TR 2.0 litre petrol too highly, but looking at its numbers compared to the 2TR leads to a revelation: the 2.0 litre delivers 83per cent of the power and 75 per cent of the torque that the bigger 2.7 litre does across the rev range. Interesting, and not bad at all, to be honest. However, this is a large commercial vehicle with a blocky profile; if your demands go beyond running light errands around town, you are better off with a more substantial powerplant such as the 3.0 litre 1KD you inquired about (137hp and 300Nm over 130hp and 182Nm – an obvious call to make).
“We believe in the possibility of car sharing in the communities we serve. We want this service to grow. It’s about reducing costs and driving convenience, flexibility in people’s lives,” said Matthew Piggott, business development manager for CarShare’s Waterloo office, that oversees London.
Car Seat Headrest seemed to pop out of nowhere in 2016—a young guy with glasses raging like he was rattling MTV’s buzzbin alongside Pavement and Modest Mouse. But Will Toledo’s crawl into your indie-rock playlist was, in truth, a slow one. By the time Teens of Denial was released, he’d already quietly dropped an impressive catalog of albums via Bandcamp. Now, he’s returning with arguably his best: Twin Fantasy , originally a knotty, lo-fi guitar album released in 2011, rerecorded with some extra muscle and clarity. Toledo wasn’t even 20 when he created Twin Fantasy , and it’s fascinating to hear the matured songwriter returning to these complex songs with often agonizing lyrics of sexual identity, mental health, drugs and, you know, teen angst. The 90-second acoustic dirge “Stop Smoking (We Love You)” is gorgeously effective—the title is the lyrics, plus, “And we don’t want you to die.” Elsewhere, he’s crafted intricate alt-rock epics. “Beach Life-in-Death” is 13 minutes of crunchy, propulsive guitar building to explosive climaxes, strung together with soul-searching lyrics: Toledo recalls faking drunk when he came out to friends to defer the heaviness. “Pretty soon you’ll find some nice young Satanist with braces,” he sings. “You can take him home to your mother and say, ‘Ma, this is my brother.’” Toledo’s level of lyrical detail rang a chord with thousands of Bandcamp fans—and this rerecorded version of some of his most personal songs is a captivating dive back into the head of a teenager through the eyes of a man.
1) It’s underpowered, it struggles and is properly audible. Going up a slope will make it scream louder than a crying hyena trying to get laid. On full load with 7 ppl, it’ll scream like a dying llama wheezing for air. 2) The gearbox is weird especially on a traffic crawl, it doesn’t know which gear to stick to, hopefully a future software update could help, since it’s cvt and the gear shift isn’t mechanical. 3) During traffic crawl the weight pulls the car back with a loud thud in the engine bay every time I release the gas pedal (without passengers), service center says there’s nothing wrong with it though. 4) The TV on the roof isn’t physically connected to the center console. You need to connect the image via miracast and audio via radio. So I could never stream videos onto the screen to keep my kids quiet on a drive. 5) The TV on the roof stays on all the time, and get toasty hot as well. 6) The rear seat doesn’t have a center headrest, even though it have the slot to fit it. 7) The car doesn’t have a seat hooks, you need to find a sturdy one, because the cheap ones I bought broke whenever someone climbs in and accidentally tug onto the hooks. (You’ll need a retractable one) 8) It doesn’t come with a 360 camera, and with the size and the skirting of this car, a 360 camera is very helpful on many cases. (dented the skirting twice already) 9) The center console is tricky to work with an andriod phone, apple on the other hand is EZ. 10) This is a really thirsty horse, avg RM180 a full tank, and can last about a week of casual driving in KL (monday to friday home and work, weekends is mall hopping), I managed to empty a tank in half a day by doing a return trip to KLIA from 1Utama then to cheras. 11) rear seats are very difficult to access especially the boys, the ottoman seat leaves a 20cm gap in between so you’ll really need to squeeze through, and the ottoman seat doesn’t go all the way the the front, so you cant access the rear seat as a normal family mpv could. 12) The ottoman seats, when it’s reclined and the ottoman up, your legs doesn’t have any space to stretch, unless you sacrifice the rear & front seats legroom. Great for chauffeuring vips, but not so with 3 boys & 1 girl… Except when you are the wife… 13) Rear seats doesn’t have speakers, unfortunately for me I’ll have to blast Ed Sheeran and whatever the boys decided to bluetooth to the front, they cant hear from the back. 14) Front passenger seat have ottomans… Don’t know why they decided to add it there but there’s ottomans… Never been used since day 1 though… 15) Wind noise is very controlled, until you hit 100kmph, Think exponential curve, silence…. then BAMM… like a build in warning system to tell me I’m going fast. 16) Remember those yellow and red stripes on the road that acts like a mini road bump? This car is perfectly in sync with the red stripes and properly irons out the yellow… In sync means bump x2…
