While we expect a good mileage, thanks to the SMARTECH diesel engine, this was a surprise even for us.The amazing 25.44 kmpl* has always been a talking point for the Beat Diesel. But, when a car starts giving almost 6 kmpl more than what was promised, everyone, including us, is definitely thrilled.

Mr. Jugal Kishore was all praises for the helpful staff and great experience at the S.V. Motors Workshop in Amritsar.

Another delighted Beat Diesel owner is Mr. G. Senthilkumar, from Hosur, Tamil Nadu. He was all praises for his recently bought Beat Diesel.

WTCC Macau: Cruze finishes its 8-year WTCC dream run with amazing wins

wtcc-Blog-image3

A true winner almost always has the same story to tell. The Chevrolet Cruze, with its recent performance at the WTCC Macau, only proves this point. The Chevrolet Cruze ended the 2012 season with a massive and unprecedented 1,025 points after double and triple finishes.

Chevrolet achieved a historical record by being the first constructor ever to pass the 1,000-point threshold, ahead of BMW (650) and SEAT (617). The Macau race was the last for Chevrolet in the WTCC series after an extraordinary eight-year journey that produced three double WTCC titles (Manufacturers’ and Drivers’) and a staggering 68 race wins. Here are some memorable words by the Chevrolet Cruze drivers themselves:

Rob Huff: “What an incredible day! I really made things difficult for myself in Race 1 when I hit a wall – I guess I wanted to ensure the entertainment until the very last moment. It was a stupid mistake that could have cost me a lot. The boys did a fantastic job to repair the car for Race 2 and I must thank all the mechanics, including Alain’s and Yvan’s crews who also helped out. This is proof of the fantastic team spirit. It is going to take a while before I realize I’m the new World Champion. I guess it’s something that has to sink in slowly. It’s a perfect end to a fantastic venture. Eight years ago, Chevrolet and RML took a gamble on me and I hope today I proved them right.”

Alain Menu: “It’s great to finish with a win. In a way I am closing the loop. I won the first race for Chevrolet in 2006 at Brands Hatch (UK), and now the last one… and we are leaving the WTCC with a 1-2-3; it’s great. Needless to say, I am a little bit disappointed not to win the Drivers’ title by so few points, but that’s racing. I knew I had to win both races to be in with a chance, and I came close to doing so. Overall I had a good season and I am very happy with what we achieved. It’s still hard to realize that it is all over – we will definitely be sad tomorrow, but tonight, we’ll surely have a great party.”

Yvan Muller (1st/3rd): “A bronze medal in the WTCC was missing in my collection, but now I have it… Clearly, I would have preferred another outcome, but I knew it was going to be difficult to win the championship after Shanghai. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and you have to accept it. I want to congratulate Rob on his title – it is well-deserved. Race 1 was good for me. I was happy to win in Macau for the first time. In Race 2 there was this incident with Alex MacDowall; he missed the apex at the Mandarin corner, the fastest of all, and I was too close to being able to do anything to avoid him. I am sorry, but relieved he is OK. Being with Chevrolet these last three years has been a terrific experience and I will retain great memories of this time.”

Vijay Iyer, Director (Communications), Chevrolet Europe summed up Team Chevrolet’s highly successful run with some very inspiring words: “I want to thank our drivers and everybody at RML for the outstanding job, the commitment and the spirit shown during this weekend, the entire season and the eight years of Chevrolet’s presence in the WTCC. To finish with a 1-2-3 is really symbolic of how great this experience has been for everyone involved. This has been a fantastic program for Chevrolet, which has brought a lot to our brand, and we say goodbye to the WTCC with a sense of pride for our achievements.”

With the Chevrolet Cruze bidding goodbye to WTCC, there will be a little dejection back at the camp. But as they say, ‘tomorrow is a brand new day’; and with those words Chevrolet Cruze will surely race right back, to achieve brand new milestones on the highway of motorsports!

The new Chevrolet Cruze: Designed to rule

CruzeChevrolet Cruze. Launched in June 2012, here is an automobile that is born to offer exhilarating levels of power and maneuverability.

The new Chevrolet Cruze is a car so powerful that the segment to which it belongs has just gone up a notch higher. This new variant, will dominate the roads to give you mileage and thrill like you have never experienced before.

Its pure power, packed in the body of a car.With a 166 PS VCDi engine, compared to its earlier 150 PS version, it is a bundle of automobile muscle, waiting to be unleashed. Whether you choose the 6-Speed Automatic Transmission or the 6-Speed Manual Transmission, it offers a driving experience like no other.

This automobile is definitely not for the one who doesn’t believe in authority. The black interiors stamp their presence with sophistication that’s beyond words. The new Cruze puts you back in charge. After all, a car that comes with Turbo Charged Intelligence, and is designed to be a perfectionist would hardly be willing to compromise on anything.

Seldom does one come across a car which has its driving seat designed as a space-age cockpit. The sophisticated ice blue dash illumination and centre-positioned information display accounts for every little detail that you will ever need to turn your daily rides into memorable drives. A three-spoke steering wheel with thicker, ergonomic rim design helps you maneuver with more ease than you could ever imagine. An automatic inside rear view mirror takes care of the blinding glares of headlights behind you. It promises moments where you might suddenly feel the Cruze is more than just a car.

The Cruze not only delivers you to favorable destinations, but each drive is like being in the lap of luxury. A plethora of features complement the power drive with best-of-class indulgence. Passive entry passive start (PEPS), Cruise Control, rain sensing wipers, tilt and telescopic steering, ample storage and an illuminated vanity mirror make sure that each ride is a trip worth remembering.

The car puts the promise of a superstar to the forefront. Anti-lock braking system and dual airbags ensure that you are in a cocoon of safety, right from the moment you step into the car. A McPherson strut-type front suspension enables optimal balance of comfort and handling agility, resulting in a better and quieter performance. At the back, its U-shaped rear suspension with torsion beam and gas-charged shock absorbers ensure a smooth and comfortable ride.

The Chevrolet Cruze is a scorcher from the word go. Don’t miss it for the world.

Racer by Spirit, Car by Choice

articles3When the Cruze was built, an ordinary drive was the last thing on the mind of its engineers. It was packaged to deliver an experience which would only be limited by your imagination. It was a car designed to Cruze.
The Cruze nameplate refers to a globally developed, designed and manufactured four door compact sedan, which was complemented by a five-door hatchback body variant. The journey of the car can be traced back to the Tokyo Motor Show of 1999, where it was launched as the YGM1 Concept. The production Chevrolet Cruze was finally revealed by GM in October 2001, with Japanese sales commencing the following month. With a decade of engineering and a number of facelifts later, the Cruze is set to breathe fire down the backs of its competition, in its latest avatar.
The car is stylish and definitely intimidating. The broad shoulders, chiseled frame, wide track and long wheelbases speak of an automobile that is both bold and sporty. The dual bezel headlamps are adequate to light up every adventure that you undertake on it, while delivering distinctive style. Split design tail lamps ensure that your car stands at the front of the league, even from the back. 16” alloy wheels conquer any road they are set on. The new stylish chrome grille with the golden bowtie seals the promise of absolute power that comes along with the Cruze.
Accompanied by turbo-charged intelligence, the Cruze is a perfectionist. The commanding 2.0 l VCDi diesel engine is testimony to its muscle power. The car is nifty for its solid build and size. Blame it on the 6-speed Automatic Transmission that delivers superb gearshifts without any visible loss of power and momentum. The sixth gear maximizes fuel economy at cruising speed, restoring the power right at your fingertips. McPherson strut-type front suspension balances your car, bestowing handling agility, which results in a better and quitter performance. At the back, the U-shaped rear suspension with torsion beams and gas charged shock absorbers ensure that your ride is smooth, comfortable and de-stressing.
The Cruze embraced the racing circuit in 2009 and took the entire community by storm. It started with Yvan Muller grabbing the 2010 championship title and occupying all three top positions in 2011. The race version car packs a 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine developing 230 kilowatts (310 PS) and 335 NM (247 lb·ft) of torque, making it an automobile which sets new standards in car racing.
The 2012 championship has had Yvan Muller, Alain Menu and Robert Huff occupy 1st, 2nd and 4th position, reinforcing the reign of the unbeatable Cruze.
The Chevrolet Cruze comes in a series of eight scintillating metallic shades, making it a reflection of your style. Even while standing, it has the potential to turn every other car green with envy. Thanks to its dynamic coupe-like proportions and signature robust front grille, the Cruze inspires admiration like no other. With the Cruze, you get only one option; you embrace a champion.

Alloy Wheels

For most people a car is probably one of their most significant possessions. So much time and research goes into deciding the color and model; and once the final decision is made, all of us will want to jazz it up with accessories and fittings.

For any car, alloy wheels are like a custom made suit replacing one that was bought off the rack. They dramatically transform the appearance of any motorized vehicle. With the variety of designs available in the market, it’s easy to select one that will enhance the looks of your car. This simple addition can make an old car look almost as good as new or provide it with a whole new appearance. However, alloy wheels are not just about cosmetic solutions or mere window dressing. They fulfill a functional role too.

An alloy wheel is lightweight in comparison to a steel wheel. It’s made from a combination of aluminum and small amounts of other metals like magnesium, which are added to strengthen the wheel. That’s why even though the material is light, it is by no means flimsy. In fact, alloy wheels actually make your car perform better. This lighter set of wheels improves handling by reducing unsprung mass, allowing the suspension to follow the road more closely and thus improve grip. A lighter rotating mass also translates into more fuel efficiency. As for the gaps or open design that these wheels have, these too serve a purpose; they bring on a faster brake cooling. For the lay person – this means that your brake performance is at its optimum. A handy feature in our urban, start-stop traffic situations.

When you buy alloy wheels make sure to purchase them from an original equipment manufacturer or a reputable automobile dealer. Getting your car professionally fitted would ensure that factors like pitch circle diameter, bore measurements and the like are taken into consideration to guarantee that the alloy or mag wheels you’ve bought will work according to their purpose. A botched fit or a mismatched pattern of nuts to your PCD will cause unnecessary wear and tear.

Some automobile companies like Chevrolet have a range of striking alloy wheels for each of their car models. It makes perfect sense to get these custom-made wheels fitted on your car. They not only enhance the all-important aesthetic appeal but also improve the mileage and the steering feel of the car due to their lightness.
