Compact Sedans: A compromise?


The 2014 Delhi Auto Expo’s succinct remark was – “Hey look, Compact Sedans gonna craze the entry-level henceforth!” 

They are now entry-levels and those large sedans who were earlier are now sold as premium sedans. 

Self-Driving Cars: Better than You, but What's the hold-up??

It is impressive to see how fast self-driving cars have evolved. They are said to be smarter and safer than human drivers. Good things are aplenty. 

But what actually prevents them to get on to our roads at this stage?

Fiat Siena: An Italian Delight and some Nostalgia!

The first-gen Fiat Siena (1999) was my first car. An excellent sedan with high levels of quality and comforts, the Siena would easily shame many of the present-day cars in the segment. Nearly 15 years on, it still looks and feels fantastic and serves as a reminder of what Fiats actually are keeping aside their crappy marketing in India. It adores my garage with pride and passion!

I don't know how far my love for my Siena will go on. "Every Fiat is always driven out of passion. Those who drive them would love them for sure", goes a Fiat's advert. That's a maxim for me beyond any doubt. Yes, I know the car may look a doudy for many, not punchy enough and now no respect on road. But I really don’t care since it’s a kind of car I can’t stop smiling over when I drive it!

Here's why I say this Siena is a priceless legend.

Car Hacking: How far possible?

Hacking a car?
Oh, come on, Dhiyanu. It’s ridiculous! No one can and would ever do that.
You think so? In this day and age? Certainly not far-fetched. It's a technological fact indeed. 
But, it's too early to worry about the potential threat of your car.

The recent news of two techies taking control of the on-board computers of a Toyota Prius and Ford Escape using a laptop is a fact that car hacking is much more threatening than so far.

Now it is with the car makers and law makers to decide how further and faster they can push technologies to make our drives safer. Sadly, they remain mum or downplay the issue.
