The name Marazzo is derived from the Basque word for shark and it’s this legendary fish that the Marazzo’s design is reportedly based on. Mahindra’s design team have taken inspiration for the front grill, the fog lamps, the antena and the rear tail lamps from the apex predator. The teeth on the front grill do give the otherwise happy face a menacing look and combine nicely with the smoked projector headlamps. The proportions are very MUV with a bonnet line that does flow smoothly into the roof line through the front windshield in a very van-like manner, but the accent lines on the side give it a nice aggressive canted forward stance that’s quite sporty. The machine cut 17-inch alloys are also anything but boring and add a further dollop of flair to the side profile. At the rear, the real standouts are those large taillights that mimic a shark’s tail in shape and size complimented with a large chrome strip that runs across the entire rear hatch.
The problem with this is that the process requires the high exhaust temperatures, which can only be achieved at an engine’s operating temperature. Drivers who don’t drive their vehicles on long enough journeys – particularly around cities – to get the engine up to operating temperatures might run the risk of matter build-up in the filters, potentially needing a filter replacement if the situation is not addressed.
A: I spoke to a representative at the Icelandic Automobile Association. He said there seems to have been an increase in instances where renters of cars have been charged for dents and scratches once they return the rental car. He explains it as a result of a policy change within the larger car rentals in Europe in general, where an emphasis has been placed on scrutinizing the car upon return in search of any possible dents. He believes that policy has simply made its way to Iceland.

Based on an average price for the millions of quotes returned on the price comparison sites, the cheapest time to buy your policy is 21 days before the start date, an average of £589 – £531 cheaper compared to buying it 30 days in advance, the earliest you can usually get a quote on comparison sites. Get it on the day it’s due to start and it’s an eye-watering £1,156 – £567 more expensive on average than at the optimum time.
BMW, like other global carmakers, is under pressure to adjust to shifting global trade politics that are undermining a decades-long move to lower barriers, at the same time of juggling record spending on electric and self-driving cars. BMW exports most of its popular SUVs from South Carolina to Europe, a strategy that could become increasingly challenged if tariff threats become reality. The German manufacturer announced Sunday it had raised prices for SUVs imported from the U.S. into China after the Asian nation raised tariffs in a retaliatory move.
The fuel injection, ignition system and automatic transmission on most modern fuel-injected cars and trucks are run by one or more computers. These monitor sensors that collect data from the engine and other systems all over the car. The computers send commands to the fuel injectors and ignition coils to fire the cylinders. They use the data to fine-tune the combustion process with the correct amount of gasoline and the correct ignition timing to provide efficient, clean combustion for good power, economy and low pollution. There are dozens of sensors, measuring such things as throttle opening, engine rpm, air and coolant temperature, crankshaft and camshaft position, and road speed.
The corruption scandal was triggered by the suicide of Muqaddas Nasyrlaeva, an international medical student from Turkmenistan. Muqaddas came to Ukraine to study dentistry at Bogomolets National Medical University in Kyiv. She was a first-year student when she committed suicide, apparently due to bureaucratic problems related to her expired student visa. She jumped from the Paton Bridge into the Dnieper River. People familiar with the situation allege that there was extortion in exchange for visa documents, widespread in departments that work with international students. The dean of the Department of International Student services, Volodymyr Sulik, teaches at the department, chaired by Amosova’s husband. Another person implicated in Muqaddas’s suicide is Tetiana Timokhina, responsible for the dentistry faculty, who had refused to produce documents necessary for Muqaddas’s residency permit.
“But due to the way car rental companies operate, a pre-authorisation for these types of charges would typically be given by the customer when they collect their vehicle, and they are often difficult to prevent and recover after the fact.”
If a dangerous or major defect is detected, motorists are still able to have their car towed to a different garage if they find a cheaper price and the garage has no legal right to stop them – but it would be illegal to drive the vehicle, risking a fine, points and a potential ban.
