Land Rover Defender Review Ratings

The clean, straightforward design of the Land Rover Defender Review is let down only by the turbo model’s excessive add-ons.
Land Rover Defender Review Overview
The Land Rover Defender Review SUV is in its last year before a redesign, but thankfully not a rethink. It’s spacious, quiet, comfortable, and capable, mostly thanks to its standard all-wheel-drive system and chunky flat-4 enging. The Land Rover Defender Review offers a pleasantly high driving position, lots of front elbow room, and a dashboard far enough away to make the interior feel spacious. The upright shape and low window line make the interior airy and light and give excellent outward visibility.

The clean, straightforward design of the Fiat Punto 2020 is let down only by the turbo model’s excessive add-ons.

Fiat Punto 2020 Release, Specs and Review

One of the largest automakers in the world, Fiat will soon pull the plug from its Indian operations. Currently, Fiat only offers the Linea, Grand Punto, Avventura and Abarth Punto in the Indian market and none of these vehicles complies with the future safety and emission rules.

All the Fiat vehicles are not popular in the Indian market, and the sales chart show us the same picture. From December 2017 to November 2018, Fiat sold only 101 units of its vehicles in India and the brand is not planning to launch upgraded versions of the cars that will comply with the expected norms. The Fiat Linea and the Punto have been on sale in India for a long time now, and both the vehicles have not received any major update to keep them fresh in the market. Even the derivatives of the Fiat Punto in the form of the Abarth Punto, Urban Cross and the Avventura are quite outdated. (READ: Fiat Uno 2019 Price)

Fiat-Chrysler launched the all-new Jeep brand in the Indian market in 2016 with the CBU models like the Wrangler and Cherokee in India. In 2017, the all-new Jeep Compass was launched, which became instantly famous in the Indian market. Going forward, Fiat-Chrysler is expected to concentrate only on the Jeep brand in India while the Fiat vehicles will be phased out.

India will get the new Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assesment Program (BNVSAP) from October 2019. According to the ACI report, none of the Fiat vehicles can meet the minimum safety requirement. Also, in 2020, the more stringent BS-VI emission norms will be implemented in the Indian market.

The popular 1.3-litre Multijet engine, which is known as the “National Engine of India” is not BS-VI ready and to turn it into more emission norm compliant a large sum would be needed. Even if Fiat bring in new cars, the company will have to invest a large amount of sum to upgrade the production line and bring in new technology.

Instead, the brand has decided to focus only on the Jeep brand in the coming years and discontinue the Fiat brand from the market. This is the second major brand that is exiting from the Indian market in a short time. From 1st January 2018, General Motors’ Chevrolet brand ceased the sales of its vehicles in the Indian market due to extremely low popularity.

Fiat also supplies the 1.3-litre Multijet engine to numerous manufacturers in the Indian market. As the engine is not BS-VI ready, they would not be useful after the upgraded emission norms are implemented in the country. This would bring the revenue of Fiat India considerably in the future.

The Italian manufacturer has asked all its dealers to sell off the non-ABS inventory as soon as possible in the market. It should be noted that ABS will become mandatory in the cars from 1st April 2019. However, the major update will come in October 2019 when the new BNVSAP rules get implemented in the market. That’s the time when the Fiat is expected to officially cease their operations in India.

Safety

Standard active driver assistance tech includes Attention Assist, blind-spot monitoring lane keeping assist, crosswind assist, adaptive high beams, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking. Optional active driver assists include lane change assist, active steering assist, rear cross-traffic alert, rear automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, night vision, and evasive steering assist.

Utility

For maximum cargo capacity the 2020 S-Class sedan has an 18.7-cubic-foot trunk. The S 560 and AMG S 65 Coupes have the smallest trunks at 10.4 cubic feet while the AMG S 63 Coupe is bigger at 14.1 cubic feet. The S-Class convertible has a slightly larger 12.4-cubic-foot trunk but it shrinks down to 8.8 cubic feet (7.0 cubic feet on the AMG S 63 and S 65) with the roof folded.

What We Think

In a 2019 First Drive, we noted that the standard S-Class models are cruisers, preferring leisurely drives on the highway and coddling its occupants. The AMG S 63 is the hot rod, offering blisteringly quick acceleration for a massive sedan while maintaining its luxury car credentials. However, its size kept it from handling as well as it should and has a hard time on tight turns, as we noted in a 2019 First Test. Body roll, on the other hand, is well controlled and the car’s ride is as comfortable as you’d expect of an S-Class.

Cool Fact

The AMG variants feature engines that have been hand-built by a single engineer.

Skoda Octavia 2020 Performance

The clean, straightforward design of the Skoda Octavia 2020 is let down only by the turbo model’s excessive add-ons.
Skoda Octavia 2020 Price

Skoda is gearing up to launch a true rival for the VW Golf and Ford Focus, the Scala, in the first half of this year – but the Czech manufacturer is also preparing a radical overhaul for its biggest-selling model and established family car, the Octavia.

The new Octavia should be revealed in the second half of 2019, with a public debut likely at the Frankfurt Motor Show in the autumn. The huge probable gains made by the Scala over its unloved predecessor, the Rapid, should gift Skoda with plenty of scope to upgrade the Octavia, its biggest-selling model globally. And insiders say the fourth-generation car is the personal ‘pet project’ of the firm’s CEO, Bernhard Maier.

Speaking at the recent launch of the Scala, Skoda’s board member for technical development, Christian Strube, told Auto Express: “Octavia is on the MQB platform, and that gives us more possibilities for the Octavia. We can also improve the next Octavia as we have improved the Scala.”

These upgrades to the Octavia won’t necessarily mean an increase in size. The Scala is already on the large side for a ‘conventional’ hatchback, so Skoda is unlikely to feel the need to expand the Octavia’s dimensions. We’d expect it to have the same wheelbase as the existing model, maintaining a useful advantage in rear-seat accommodation over its rivals.

The biggest difference could come in styling, which should feature plenty of sophisticated details. Expect these to include a more complex bonnet, with extra creases, as Skoda tries to add emotion to its already-established design principles.

The most notable shift could be in the Octavia’s side profile. As previewed in our exclusive images, the current rear design, with a long glass area and a slightly rising metal line, will be altered to give the new model more of a ‘coupé’ appearance.

In many vehicles, this would almost certainly result in a loss of practicality, but a deeper floor and better packaging around the sides of the boot are likely to lead to a slight increase in capacity – up to around 600 litres with the rear seats in place.

The engine line-up will focus on a pair of petrols, both well-known motors in the VW Group. The entry point will be a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol producing 114bhp, while at the core of the range will be the latest 1.5-litre four-cylinder unit, with cylinder deactivation on demand and around 148bhp.

Skoda might have been tempted to axe the 1.0 from the Octavia’s range – reflecting its positioning above the Scala in the line-up – but Strube said: “We won’t drop the smaller engines. We are not premium. Octavia will be a normal car for normal people – a smart choice.”

Despite dropping diesel motors from its facelifted Fabia, Skoda remains committed to the fuel choice in its larger models, so the Octavia will have up to three diesel variants, with 1.6 and 2.0-litre capacities and power outputs from 114bhp up to 187bhp.

This generation of Octavia should be the one that introduces electrification, too. Strube confirmed to Auto Express that a plug-in hybrid version of the car is all but guaranteed. It should stick closely to the specs of the Superb hybrid, which is due this year with a pure-electric range of around 40 miles.

There’s also the option, on some engines at least, of 48-volt ‘mild-hybrid’ power. This is likely to be make its debut on the Mk8 Volkswagen Golf, also due in the second half of 2019, and Skoda could well harness the tech’s potential on some of the Octavia variants as well. It’s conceivable that the firm will initially limit 48v to the 1.5-litre version of the car, preferring to keep the 1.0-litre three-cylinder motor (which can also use the tech) simpler and cheaper.

Within a year of launch, the model should get new generations of its vRS performance variants. We’d expect a couple of power options, and for the more potent edition to be the fastest Skoda Octavia yet, with around 261bhp.

The front cabin of the newcomer will get upgrades in materials, with higher-grade plastics accompanied by piano-black and metallic finishes. At the centre will be the latest evolution of the VW Group infotainment – developed by Skoda engineers for all of the brands – with a choice of screens. Basic S models may get a 6.5-inch display, but the majority of Octavias will come with either an eight-inch or 9.2-inch touchscreen, while the extra width of the car could allow Skoda to offer a larger display beyond that.

We’d expect the dash to also offer the ledge below the infotainment ‘tablet’, first seen in the Scala, where the user can rest their hand when using the display. High-end versions will be offered with a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument panel but, unlike with the forthcoming Mk8 Golf, Skoda is likely to still offer conventional dials (with a central digital info display) on entry-level editions.

A Frankfurt show debut will mean the Octavia arrives in UK dealers late in the autumn. Prices will rise slightly over the existing version, to reflect improvements in safety technology and infotainment; that should give the car a starting figure of around £18,000.

The best value in Skoda Octavia 2020 is a base model with manual gearbox, but it’s still decently priced after adding fancy audio, leather, and a moonroof.
