What Is Laser Hair Removal & What You Need To know Before This Procedure Done.

Pdagreen

Laser Hair Removal is a safe and effective way of removing unwanted hair, permanently. The way it works is simple. Light is absorbed by melanin, the pigment in the hair follicle. The laser’s light energy heats the pigment and destroys the hair follicle. It only affects the specific structures of the hair and follicle, leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Thérapie Clinic only use medical grade lasers, the most advanced technology available, which safely deliver superior results and faster treatment times.

Here is some info you need to know before getting this procedure done are as follows :

1. Laser hair removal isn’t as complicated as it sounds.

Any service with the word “laser” in its name might seem intimidating, but it’s actually very simple. “Energy from the laser is picked up by the pigment in the hair follicle, causing destruction to the root,” explains New York dermatologist Dr. Margarita Lolis. Once the root is destroyed, it can’t produce more hair.

2. There are three main types of lasers.

Diode:

The diode laser is very effective for light and dark skin.

Alexandrite:

This laser is the fastest of all laser types and works best for treating larger body areas among patients who are have light-to-olive complexions.

Nd:YAG:

This long pulse laser can be used safely on all skin types, including tanned skin. It is less effective for light or fine hair when compared to other types of lasers.

3. Laser hair removal works best on four areas.

While laser hair removal can work on any body part you wish to remove hair from, it is especially effective on the bikini, lip, chin, and underarm areas.

4. People with thick, coarse, and dark hair are the best candidates for laser hair removal.

If you have dark hair and have ever been annoyed with how stubborn it can be when it comes to regrowth and removal, rejoice: “The laser is attracted to pigment, or color, in the hair follicle,” explains Sharoff.

That said, it can take a little longer to fully work on thicker hair. “Some hair is just very resistant, and sometimes new ones come out due to hormonal changes or other hair bulbs becoming active during the treatment period,” explains Dr. Gurukaran, Director of Personiks, who has personal experience with laser hair removal.

5. You need to stop using specific medications.

Just as with waxing, this skincare treatment is incompatible with certain meds. “Any medications that are photosensitive need to be stopped at least one week prior to treatment,” Sharoff warns. She also notes that most antibiotics can be photosensitive, so if you have an infection, it could be a good idea to push your treatment back a few weeks.

Patients should not be using skincare with strong actives such as retinoids and alfa hydroxyl acids,” says Dr. Gurukaran. These ingredients can increase skin cell turnover, making skin more vulnerable to the sun and irritation during the treatment period. If you’re not sure whether your medication could negatively affect your laser hair removal treatment, consult with your doctor beforehand.

6. You’ll see real results after about 6 to 8 treatments.

Everybody is different, so the amount of sessions it takes varies per individual, says Dr. Lolis. “Laser hair removal works when the hair is in its active growth rate,” she explains. Different parts of the body have different growth rates, and therefore could take longer or shorter depending on which spot you’re treating, but Sharoff states that the majority of clients need an average of six to eight treatments for full hair removal.

7. You need to attend every session.

“One of the biggest mistakes people make is not completing the necessary amount of sessions,” warns Dr. Lolis. “Once the hair growth slows down, patients don’t follow through.” If you really want your treatment to be effective, listen to your practitioner — they know best.

8. It shouldn’t be painful.

“With numbing, it should be comfortable,” says Dr. Lolis, who adds that it feels like a “rubber band snapping the skin,” while Sharoff notes that most of her clients describe it as a light, warm pinch.

9. Don’t worry if you’re on your period.

Unlike getting a bikini wax, you should not cancel your treatment due to your period, says Sharoff. “It’s very important to stay consistent with treatments,” she explains, “so even if a woman is menstruating and treating her bikini area, we just ask that she uses a tampon on the day of treatment.”

10. There’s one thing you need to do before your appointment: shave.

“We ask that you shave the area you are treating beforehand so that the laser can penetrate into the root of the hair — not target or singe any hair on or outside the skin,” advises Sharoff. She is very specific about the shaving aspect of this prep work for a reason: “You should not wax, tweeze, or bleach any hair one month before your session because the root needs to stay intact in order for the laser to effectively destroy the hair.”

Hyundai Eon Hatchback First Drive & Gearbox

Hyundai EON On Road Price In Bangalore

Hyundai Eon Overview

Hyundai breached the entry-level segment which was long dominated by Maruti Suzuki. And this was possible with its state-of-the-art product Eon launched in 2011. This was the straightforward challenge to Maruti’s money-spinning model Alto and Eon countered it quite well with its style statement and upmarket interiors. Over the years, Hyundai Eon has been given several updates including the powerful 1.0L engine and the recent Sports Edition with lots of styling changes. Still, the car has been a strong player in the segment, capable of withstanding the force even from Renault Kwid and Datsun redi-GO. Check for SBI Car loan at Fincarz.

Hyundai Eon Look

Hyundai Eon is targeted at the youth of country and the flowing futuristic looks inspired by the fluidic design language make the car look very stylish. The car does not look like anything like its competitors. Hyundai has designed the car smartly. With the visible lines on both sides of the car, and great detailing done to the grille and headlamps, it does look premium and expensive.

The long swept-back headlamps, neatly-designed fog lamp scoops on the bumper, cool-looking grille, creased bonnet and muscular body with design lines flowing right from the headlamps to the tail make the small car very unique in its segment, and surely make it very aggressive and premium. With an overall length of 3495 mm and width of 1500 mm, the Eon is pretty compact and the design lines with the expressive attention to detail make the vehicle look very nice. Hyundai sells the car in bright sizzling colours, like Pristine Blue, Maharaja Red, Sleep Silver and many others, with body-coloured bumpers, making the vehicle a good attraction on road. The quality of materials is not very good but not very bad either. Apart from the thin body it comes with, the quality of plastic and finishing is really good. Hyundai Eon is the best-looking entry-level hatchback by any means.

Eon does not offer alloy wheels, but Hyundai has fitted elegant full wheel covers complete with a wheel hub in the Eon. The wheelbase of Eon is 2380 mm, which provides good stability to the car. Eon is offered in two different sets of wheels according to the trim of the vehicle. The base- and mid-level variants – D Lite, D Lite Plus and Era, get 145/80 12-inch wheels, while the Magna, Magna Plus and Sportz variants get larger 13-inch 155/70 profile tyres. Eon comes with tubeless tyres, which increases the safety of the car. Steel rims are painted in black and covered with a 10-spoke Hyundai’s signature diamond cut type wheel cover. The wheels are connected to McPherson Strut with coil spring and torsion beam for more comfort. The anti-roll bar suspension adds more safety to the Eon.

Hyundai Eon Comfort

Get inside and you will be greeted by one of the best designed interiors with the quality of the fit and finish matching it. The Eon gets the segment’s best looking dashboard (equalled by the recently launched Renault Kwid maybe) and it’s hard to believe in this segment. Hyundai has upheld its reputation of putting the best looking interiors with amazing build quality.The interiors get a black and beige layout. The dashboard is spread like the wings of a bird with a V shaped centre console.The instrument cluster features a large circular pod that houses the speedometer and a MID at the bottom, displaying the odometer, trip meter and shift indicator. There are two small circular pods on either side showing the fuel level and engine temperature gauges. Overall, the meters are easily readable and are designed neatly. The lack of a tachometer is easily felt and there is no option for the same even in the top variants.

The steering wheel is nicely designed with a V-shaped silver highlight in the middle and is of a good size, if not a tad bigger. The steering wheel also gets a first-in-segment tilt adjustment.The centre console houses the middle AC vents and a 2-DIN audio system and air conditioning controls below. The switches and knobs are of good size and quality.The glove box is wide and deep, offering lots of space for your needs. Other storage spaces come in the form of a storage spot on the top of the dashboard, bottle holders on the front doors, door pockets and cup holders in the middle. Check for Hyundai Eon in Midasedu

Both the front and rear seats offer amazing under thigh support especially in this segment. The front seats get integrated headrests that are positioned very efficiently and the cushioning is also good. At the rear, the space available is one of the best in the segment (not surprising considering that the Eon gets the same wheelbase as the Santro and i10).215 litres of boot space means you can travel with your luggage neatly tucked in the rear. The boot space is one of the biggest in the segment miles ahead of the Alto’s 177 liters and Nanos abysmal 80 liters. Only the newly released Renault Kwid beats the Eon as its boot space stands at 300 liters.

Hyundai Eon Gearbox

Hyundai has been studying AMT for a while now, however the Eon hasn’t just got it. The Eon will have a 800cc engine and a 1.0-litre engine too. But these will be mated to a five-speed manual transmission. From what we understand, these engines will be tuned for better performance and improved drivability too. The Hyundai Eon 2017 will not see any addition of new engines or gearboxes or any mechanical changes.

The 800cc engine produces 55bhp of power and 76Nm of torque. The 1.0-litre engine churns about 68bhp of power and 94Nm of peak torque. The petrol engine has some amounts of vibrations, which can be felt on the gear lever. These two options are available on the Hyundai Eon 2017.In terms of efficiency, the Hyundai Eon 2017 should have a mileage of 16 km/l for the 800cc engine. The Eon 1.0 should return about 14 km/l. This is Eon mileage for a mix of city and highway driving.

Hyundai Eon Riding

The old Eon wasn’t a handler and the new one is no different. The steering is light at low speeds but just doesn’t weigh up at high speeds and that really robs away confidence even at 80 km/hr. In fact, the steering is so numb at high speeds that there is almost no feedback felt by the driver, this is simply not the car to drive enthusiastically. The brakes are strong though but again, the car doesn’t maintain its line on hard braking and twitches a lot. Ride quality is good, the suspension is softly sprung which makes the Eon bob at high speeds, robbing away stability and bad bumps do unsettle passengers. For city speeds though, the Eon’s suspension is more than up for the task to insulate all that’s thrown at it.

Hyundai Eon Safety

Driver airbag is optional from D-Lite + onwards and is a standard provision on the top end variant while missing out on the entry level trim. Other safety features like central locking, keyless entry, front fog lamps, engine immobilizer, seat belts in front & rear and inside rear view mirror are offered on the hatchback.

Hyundai Eon Price in Bangalore 

Hyundai Eon On-Road Price in Bangalore ranges from 4,05,087 to 5,32,254 for variants EON D Lite and EON Sportz respectively. Hyundai Eon is available in 10 variants and 5 colours. Below are details of Hyundai Eon variants price in Bangalore.  For price details on Hyundai Eon check AutoZhop

Hyundai Eon Bottomline

That the Eon is the entry level hatch to buy is no question about. The interior and exterior styling makes this hatch look stylish and gives it a wide appeal. Because of how it is styled, you’re made to believe you are paying less for it. Interior space while not as good as the Tata Nano, is good enough for four passengers and the feature list for a hatch of its price is good. The engine isn’t as refined as the Alto K10 and neither is the performance as strong as its rival, but it’s good enough to get by and the fuel efficiency is good. Ride quality is one of the Eon’s strength and the handling is good as well. Hyundai has packaged the Eon brilliantly and its swanky appearance makes you believe that you’re buying not a budget hatch but a modern car and therein lies its appeal.

 

What Is Liposuction & Are There Any Side Effects Of Liposuction?

Dr. Gurukaran, MRCS, DNB, M.Ch, Personiks.

Painpeters

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that breaks down fat accumulation in the body’s diet and exercise resistant areas and removes it from the body. In other words, it is a fat extraction operation with a vacuum technique for certain parts of the body.

It is usually applied to the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms and neck. Liposuction improves specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and reshaping lines. It is done under general or local anesthesia. If a person is suitable for this surgical procedure and he or she complies with the doctor’s instructions given, it is a smooth operation.

However, some complications, such as excessive bleeding, which can occur in every surgery, can have dangerous consequences. For this reason, liposuction should not be rushed, and as with any surgical intervention, it should be embarked upon only after a thorough investigation of all the ins and outs.

Liposuction is a surgery, which removes fat from marked areas in the body, such as:

. Cheeks, chin, and neck

. Upper arms

. Chest

. Back

. Abdomen and waist

. Buttocks

. Thighs

. Knees

. Calves and ankles

At the outset, general or topical anaesthesia will be administered to you depending on the size of the area being treated on your body. Small incisions are made on the marked fat accumulated areas of your body, through which tubes or cannulae are inserted. The tubes are attached to a suction pump or syringe, using which the doctor suctions out the accumulated fat deposits. Check for Liposuction in Jsrr

Over the years liposuction has undergone many refinements, so now, there are several options you can choose from, depending on your particular requirements and comfort level.

The risks that you may face during or after a liposuction surgery include:

. Feeling lightheaded after the surgery

. Infections

. Bruising

. Damage to internal organs

. Embolism (a condition where fat loosened during liposuction enters blood vessels and may travel to the lungs or brain)

. Persistent swelling

. Burns

. Fluid imbalance

. Cardiac or pulmonary complications

. Changes in skin sensation which may become permanent

Other side effects include:

. Nausea

. Vomiting

. Irregular menstrual cycle for ladies for a month or two. At times, this procedure may even be fatal, and in fact, there are numerous reports of death related to liposuction surgeries

It is, therefore, advisable to make an informed decision, by first discussing at length the pros and cons of any liposuction procedure with your doctor.

Maruti Suzuki Ignis Facelift First Drive & Transmission

View offers on Maruti Suzuki Cars

Maruti Suzuki Ignis Overview

It takes some doing to be at the top of the heap in the fifth largest automobile market of the world with a claim over nearly half the passenger car market. Maruti Suzuki’s continued domination is partly due to the depth and variety of choice that is available in its portfolio. And much of that choice continues to be centred around small cars, the largest segment of passenger car market.

Like a consumer products company, Maruti Suzuki already has a range of small cars whose prices are set so close to each other that it confuses some buyers. But a wide choice never fails to draw more buyers into the fold. Joining that crowded portfolio of cars in the Rs 3 lakh to Rs 7 lakh price range is the new Ignis. That is one more Maruti small car with both petrol and diesel engine options. Check for Car Loan Interest calculator.

Maruti Suzuki Ignis  Look;

Design flourishes dominate the insides too, and the Progressive Triad finds its way onto the sides of the central console box which on some cars is finished in colours complementing the exterior paint. The front door handles which are neat-looking cylindrical bars are also painted in the same colour.

The dashboard is all straight lines and seems to have a virtual beam housing the rectangular central air vents and forming the mounting for the ‘floating’ touchscreen unit. Below this is a cylindrical auto climate control unit with nifty toggle-like switches. They operate with a quality feel, like the other switches and buttons around the car. Lower variants, however, get a manual AC with a control unit that looks like an afterthought. With all the style around, Suzuki should have paid some attention to giving this unit an attractive shape. The lower variants get a button-operated music system that’s mounted within the same housing as the touchscreen unit.

Maruti Suzuki Ignis Comfort

The Ignis diesel automatic also loses some of the comfort and convenience features compared to its Alpha trimmed manual counter part. The touchscreen multimedia system with Android Auto gives way to a regular Bluetooth audio system. It’s still a stick-on design that sits centrally on the dashboard between the air vents. But, compared to the tab like screen, this one looks utilitarian instead of cool. There’s also no height adjustment for the driver’s seat and a manual aircon unit replaces the digital climate control system.

What remains from the Alpha trim is the multifunctional steering wheel, the detailed driver information system as part of the instrumentation and keyless entry and start. It also gets plenty of storage spaces in and around the central tunnel and in the door pockets, and the glovebox is spacious too. The Ignis diesel automatic continues to get parking aid in the form of rear parking sensors but with no touchscreen inside, reversing camera has been given the boot as well.

In terms of space and seating comfort, things remain the same. So, there’s enough head and knee room to seat four passengers, and the seats themselves are cushy but supportive. The boot space at 260 litres remains handy, especially with split and folding rear seats, even though the high loading lip height can be a problem for some.

Maruti Suzuki Ignis Gearbox

drive as well. For India, at the moment there is no requirement for it.Maruti Suzuki hasn’t officially revealed the specifications of the new Ignis, however it is likely to come with a 1.2-litre petrol and 1.2-litre diesel engine options. The 1.2-litre petrol is the K-Series engine and this will come with a five-speed manual transmission and produce about 83bhp of power and 115Nm of peak torque. The other engine is an all new three cylinder diesel engine that will churn about 75bhp and about 180Nm of torque. For more info on Maruti Suzuki Ignis visit midasedu

This engine has been developed by Suzuki and the two cylinder version of this engine is used on the Celerio and four pot will be coming on other Maruti Suzuki products. This will also come with a five-speed manual transmission. There will even an automatic transmission on offer. The Ignis will be sold through the Nexa Experience dealerships and hence it won’t come with an AMT. The Ignis will be coming with an automatic transmission on the petrol engine and maybe even the diesel engine. The Ignis for the Indian car market will be offered with front wheel drive. For exports, however it will even come with an all-wheel

Maruti Suzuki Ignis Riding

For a car that stands tall, the Ignis has a well-cushioned ride. It rides on 15-inch wheels so it already gets an edge over other hatchbacks as far as ironing out minor road inconsistencies are concerned. Overall bump absorption is good with only the major ones filtering into the cabin. Surprisingly for a Maruti Suzuki car, the suspensions deal with the big potholes gracefully, without the crashing noise filtering into the cabin much

The overall drive experience is enhanced by the well weighed steering wheel which is light at parking speeds but weighs up appropriately as the speeds rise. It doesn’t offer much feedback, but the Ignis doesn’t promise to be a driver’s car either, so it can be spared. That said, thanks to the heaviness at the ‘wheel, the Ignis would maintain straight lines on highways with minimal steering corrections.

Maruti Suzuki has built the Ignis on its fifth-gen A-platform, which is stiffer than before and further improves its on-road stability. It is also prepared to pass the frontal, rear and side impact tests and also gets ABS and EBD and dual airbags as standard. The Ignis inspires confidence under braking at sane speeds and should therefore turn out to be a good highway companion for weekend outstation rides.

Maruti Suzuki Ignis Safety

The Maruti Suzuki Ignis Facelift features a safety mechanism that promises 2 airbags for the driver and co-driver, and ABS with EBD which comes as standard across all variants. The body built is governed by Heartect platform which ensures maximum protection of all occupants with maximum precision and accuracy. For car parking excellence, this beauty is coupled with rear parking sensors and camera for better precision.

There is a driver seatbelt reminder, key left reminder, overtaking turn indicator and a headlamp on reminder. There is an LED mount stop lamp, ISOFIX, seatbelts pretensioners with force limiters, rear wiper, rear defogger and an engine immobilizer for theft protection. As far as braking is concerned, there are disc brakes present at the front and drum brakes at the rear.

Maruti Suzuki Ignis Price in Hyderabad

Maruti Suzuki Ignis On-Road Price in Hyderabad ranges from 5,65,907 to 8,47,102 for variants Ignis 1.2 Sigma MT and Ignis Alpha Automatic Petrol respectively. Maruti Suzuki Ignis is available in 7 variants and 5 colours. Below are details of Maruti Suzuki Ignis variants price in Hyderabad. Check for Ignis price in Hyderabad at Tryaldrive.

Maruti Suzuki Ignis Bottomline

Yes, the Ignis is a dressed up hatch, and it has shortcomings. Its styling is head-turning but polarising, and it looks a bit awkward when viewed from the rear. Its interiors, although funky, could do with a bit more finesse. However, the Ignis is very well equipped and spacious. The way it rides and drives makes it feel sophisticated and friendly to use too. The option of well-engineered automatic transmissions widens the Ignis’ repertoire further. The Ignis may seem pricey, but bear in mind it packs ABS, EBD, airbags and crash safety measures engineered into its chassis. All in all, the Ignis packs attitude and appeal, outside and inside, to drive and own, and is properly sensible too. The Ignis is a hatchback, and a statement too.

 

 

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Performance & Test Drive

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Overview

We all have at least one single nostalgic moment attached with the Maruti 800. After all, for all the kids, youth or middle age men belonging to the era of nineties, this one car happened to be their first ever family car, thus being a part for most of their memorable moments. However, over all these years, the Indian car market as well as Maruti Suzuki itself have evolved a lot, which not only has made the average Indian car buyer mature as well as picky, but at the same time, has made the Indian car makers competitive enough to make cars which are better and modern in one way or the other.

View offers on  Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza

Speaking of Maruti Suzuki, the manufacturer has come a long way from being a maker of small mini hatchbacks to a name which now makes everything from an entry level hatchback to a premium crossover. And yes, it now also has a significant contribution in the fastest growing segment of today’s times – that of the compact SUVs. Now, the combination of Maruti Suzuki and SUVs never happened to be popular in the past, with its only offering in the SUV segment in the form of Grand Vitara being a big flop in India in the past, due to the image of Maruti Suzuki as only a small car maker.

But that’s now a thing of the past, and as Maruti Suzuki too is being perceived as a maker of value for money premium car makers, it has made its debut in the compact SUV segment in the form of Vitara Brezza. Developed fully in and for the Indian market, the Vitara Brezza since its launch in August 2016 has been shattering all the records and benchmarks of the sub-four meter SUV segment and is consistently finding a place in the top ten selling cars in the Indian market, thus putting Maruti Suzuki as a prominent name in the highest UV seller in India, one title which nobody would have thought it would bag. Apply car loan for Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza at Fincarz.

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Look

The speciality of this exquisite vehicle is that it has the qualities of a SUV as well as that of a hatchback. Hence, this car has a smooth run in the Indian city roads. I can traverse the highways with an equal amount of ease. The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza exterior presents an aggressive look in many ways. The new engine grille does play a great part in this aspect of the vehicle’s personality. The chrome designs ensure that you get a fantastic combination of beauty and sturdiness in equal measure. The front bumper has the same colour as that of the body and thus looks like the extension of the body in many ways. A big air dam and two high intensity fog lights are the highlights of this front burner.

The smoked look of the headlight cluster that has projector lamps and daytime running lights is a fantastic experience. The 16-alloy wheel arches enable a high quality Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza performance. This is one of the few cars that have black window pillars to suit the colour of the tinted glass. You can recognize this magnificent vehicle from afar because of the chromium plate with its name engraved. A faux silver garnished aluminium plate guards the rear bumper. In short, one can say that the actual looks of the car matches perfectly with the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza images.

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Comfort

First thing you would notice about the cabin is the comfortable ingress and egress. You just walk inside the cabin, which is also a boon for people having knee problems. The three spoke steering wheel looks familiar but the dashboard is entirely new. There is a neat looking centre console which is enclosed with a gloss black outline. The dashboard is all black but gets silver elements in the middle. The air vents are sizeable and the auto climate control works really well to cool the cabin quickly. The lower half of the centre console has well laid out uncluttered buttons which feel nice and premium to use. Overall quality of the cabin is good but in some places you might find hard plastics and components (window controls, steering stalks) that are shared with older Maruti cars.You get a neat looking instrument cluster which has some fancy tricks up its sleeve.

You can change its colour to white, orange, blue, red and yellow. The infotainment system is well kitted up having a nice big touch screen with good touch quality. It offers Apple CarPlay connectivity along with MirrorLink so you can seamlessly stay connected with your phone through the car. The audio quality is above average and many won’t feel the need of changing the speakers. It also offers navigation system which isn’t intuitive to use if you have a habit of using Google Maps. The big screen also doubles up as a reverse parking camera display that is very convenient in congested situations.

The best part about the cabin of the Vitara Brezza is the driving and upright seating position that adds to the confidence while driving. The steering and seat is height adjustable and has a good range so both tall and short people will find a comfortable position to drive. The large glass area ensures that the cabin feels airy despite having a dark interior theme. Maruti has offered clever storage spaces across the cabin including two gloveboxes, the upper one is a cool box while the lower glovebox is the conventional storage to keep documents and essentials. There is a front sliding arm rest with storage, front passenger side under seat storage, 1-litre bottle holder on all the doors, coat hanger, seatback pockets and hook, front cup holders, sunglass holder, rear arm rest with cupholders and more.

The seats are quite supportive and well padded for long trips. There is a good sense of space at the rear too and you have ample amount of legroom for average height adults but tall passengers might find the legroom limited to some extent. Shoulder room is decent too for three passengers at the rear. Head room is excellent, even for tall people. Maruti could have added air vents for the rear passengers but the AC works quite well and you won’t feel the need of it. The engineers have carved out excellent boot space of 328-litres in the Vitara Brezza which can accommodate your luggage for weekend getaways. The best part about luggage space is that the rear seat folds flat down and it is flexible too with 60:40 split. Some of the key features of the Vitara Brezza include cruise control, auto headlamps, auto wipers, keyless entry with push button start, reverse camera and sensors, power foldable ORVMs and more.

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Gearbox

For the time being, the Vitara Brezza is being offered with a choice of only one engine – the tried and tested Fiat-sourced 1248cc, four cylinder, DDIS 200 diesel engine, which we have already seen on other Maruti Suzuki offerings like Ciaz, Ertiga and S-Cross as well. Here on the Vitara Brezza, the engine develops a healthy power output of 90 PS, while the peak torque is rated at 200 Nm.

Like on the other offerings from Maruti Suzuki which come with this very engine, the Vitara Brezza pulls off in a linear fashion with a minimal turbo lag, which is quite impressive, however, it could have done with slightly more amount of power, as even with the full force on the throttle, the engine doesn’t pulls off instantly. Though, the car begins to pick up some pace once the rev counter crosses the 1500 rpm mark, with a nice linear surge of torque flowing across the rev range. The engine is not something which an enthusiast will love, and it lacks the punch and adrenaline rush of the 100 PS Ecosport, but then, it has an adequate amount of power, decent enough for your daily duties and occasional highway runs, without feeling underpowered anywhere.

Fuel efficiency has always been a big trump card for Maruti Suzuki, and here on the Vitara Brezza, the 1.3 liter engine delivers a claimed fuel economy of 24.3 kmpl. Though, on the test runs, we did obtain a combined fuel efficiency of 21.4 kmpl, which is pretty impressive for a car of this size.

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Riding

The Maruti Vitara Brezza is a compact SUV and you don’t expect it to be as fun to drive as its closest rival Ford EcoSport. However, the Vitara Brezza is surprisingly quite engaging to drive on the ghats and confidence inspiring on the straights with its balanced suspension setup. The handling is very predictable as the car follows your steering inputs quickly but not as sharply as the EcoSport.

The electric steering is a bit numb in the centre and offers neutral feedback. It is light at slow speeds and weighs up enough for highway cruising. The ride quality is a big USP of the Brezza as it glides over potholes and bumps without getting juddery. Both low speed and high speed undulations are taken care of very well by the suspension setup. Braking is very effective too, we stood on the brakes and it came to a halt without any fuss.

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Safety

ABS, EBD and dual front airbags for driver and co-passenger are among the vital safety features aboard. While driver side airbag is standard across line-up, the co-passenger side airbag is offered only on the top-spec variant. Other features such as front seat belt pre-tensioners with load limiters, front fog lamps etc also also be available on the SUV. Along with the aforementioned features the Z trims will come with projector head lamps in front, automatic AC, LED daytime running lights, piano finish for centre console, 16 inch alloy wheels, 60:40 split rear seat, steering mounted controls for audio, height adjuster for driver, rear wiper with washer, rear centre arm rest, fog lamps in front and faux skid plates on bumpers. And the range topping ZDi+ variant comes with few extras such as cooled glove box, automatic head lamp, rain sensing wiper, electrically folding wing mirrors, arm rest in front, navigation and reverse parking camera display, push button start and cruise control.

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is available in 7 variants and 9 colours. Below are details of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza variants price in Chennai.

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Bottomline

There is no denying the fact that the Vitara Brezza is a sure shot winner for Maruti Suzuki with a real possibility of it becoming its bread and butter product in the next few years. It has exciting and yet understated looks, a good interior that comes packed with gadgets and a good mechanical package. Negatives of course include the plastic quality which really needs to be improved and the fact that the NVH levels are just a tad bit too high for our liking. Although we were a bit skeptical about the Vitara Brezza, the car certainly has not disappointed in any form or measure and is certainly something we would strongly advice our readers to buy if you are looking for a new car around the Rs 10 lakh range. All said and done, you have to wonder, does that mid-size sedan or premium hatchback really make any sense anymore?

The Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire has been the best-selling car in its segment ever since it was launched in 2008. Its previous generations were never attractive but they did a lot of things right, and that’s the reason behind the model’s strong sales numbers. If there was one chink it was that the first generation was an overzealous attempt at gifting the Swift a sedan-like boot, and the second one was a pointed attempt at making it a sub-four-metre car. But there was one thing common between both – the Swift Dzire was never pretty or desirable.

The new generation Dzire looks like it is making amends. It’s also the first Dzire that wants to break free from the Swift tag. By offering six automatic variants the Dzire makes itself a lot more desirable now. Safety features like ABS & dual front airbags too are now standard across the range. So, does the new Dzire have it in it to better its predecessors on practicality and score high on both form and function? Let’s find out

Maruti Suzuki Dzire Look

Let’s start with the fact that the new Dzire looks more like a sedan than ever before. Despite still squeezing under the 4m mark, it looks more grown-up over the last model. The design is more curvaceous with a new clamshell bonnet and thick chrome garnishing around the grille and fog lamp housing. The tall front haunches spawn a line that drops as it intersects the door handles and rises once more towards the rear. This gives the side profile a sense of fluidity that reduces some of the unavoidable lack of grace that comes with squeezing a sedan within the 4m mark.

At the rear, a pair of handsome wrap-around tail lamps are connected by a fat lick of chrome. Look closely and you’ll see smart circular LED detailing within the brake lights – a nice touch. The top ZXi+/ZDi+ models here comes with tasty 16-spoke, 15″ ‘precision cut alloys’ that look the part. The lower ZDi/ZXi come with normal alloys with similar 185-section tyres while the VDi/VXi and LDi/LXi make do with smaller 14-inch steel wheels wrapped in narrower 165 section rubber. In all, the new Dzire uses a unique, curvaceous design theme with hints of similarity to the Baleno. I won’t go so far to say it’s the most handsome car in the segment, but it’s a big step ahead.

Maruti Suzuki Dzire Comfort

As with the outside, the cabin takes a leap forward. The immediate impression is that of much improved design and quality. The beige and black dashboard gets a more premium and grown up theme to siblings like the Ignis. The faux wood trim across the dash, steering bottom and door panels has a nice satin like sheen. You won’t be fooled into thinking it’s real wood, but it doesn’t come across as tacky either. The ZXi+ and ZDi+ models get a large touch screen display with GPS navigation, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. This crisp display uses a similar system to the Baleno and Ignis and is friendly to operate. The instrument cluster features simple, but smart, grey on black dials that flank a black-and white multi-info display. The display offers the typical trip and efficiency data but has some unused space, especially in the manuals where there is no gear position indicator. Makes you miss the lovely colour display from the Baleno. For Maruti Suzuki Dzire check cssn

Towards the rear, Maruti has addressed our two primary complaints with the previous Dzire – rear kneeroom and boot space. Thanks partly to a 20mm hike in wheelbase and different packaging offered by the Heartect platform, the Dzire now offers plenty of knee-room, even with the front seat adjusted for a 6 foot tall driver. Headroom is a little lower than before, but our in-house, 6’1″ tall driver found his head free of contact with the roof, but only just. We can’t confirm if it is the segment best just yet, but rear space is certainly no longer a bone of contention.

All models upwards of the base spec get a split rear ac vent, a 12v power socket as well as a central armrest with two cup holders. Stowage space is generous with two cupholders upfront, a space for your wallet or keys under the handbrake and full-size water bottle holders in the doors. In typical Maruti fashion, ergonomics are spot on, but we do miss reach adjust in the steering wheel, something the cheaper Baleno gets. The cupholder ahead of the front left aircon vent from the old car is gone too, pity that. Finally, the boot is up from a paltry 316-litres to 378-litres. It’s not the segment best, but it’s finally at a realistic level of usability. Overall fit and finish is at the pleasing levels we’ve come to expect from the the premium new Marutis.

Maruti Suzuki Dzire Gearbox

Maruti Suzuki offers a large variety of AMT powered cars in its portfolio. These include the entry level Alto K10 and Wagon R to the Celerio and the Ignis hatchbacks. In fact, about 40 per cent of all Celerio buyers and about 20 per cent of Ignis buyers opt for the AMT gearbox. The last generation Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire had the AMT gearbox but only with the diesel engine option. The new Maruti Suzuki Dzire gets the AMT gearbox with both the petrol and diesel engines. So lets tell you how it drives and if it is worth the average Rs 50 thousand premium over the manual versions.

Lets start with the diesel AMT. The new Maruti Suzuki Dzire gets the same 1.3-litre diesel engine that the last generation Swift Dzire got combined with the AMT 5-speed gearbox. The engine, a 4-cylinder turbo diesel makes 74 bhp of peak power and 190 Nm of peak torque. The 5-speed AMT unit is essentially an electronic controller on the 5-speed manual gearbox which means you still get the 28.4 kmpl fuel efficiency figure. Incidentally, that makes it the most fuel-efficient car in the country! The combination of the diesel engine and the AMT gearbox makes a great pair and if you drive normally or sedately, there is barely any lag between shifts. The typical automatic ‘shift nod’ that you experience when an auto box shifts its gears is also absent at lower revs.

In case you were wondering though, a ‘shift nod’ is the back and forth nodding movement that your head experiences when the car shifts gears in an automatic gearbox due to the sudden drop in power delivery and thus a change in the vehicle’s overall velocity.Coming back to the car though, the Dzire AMT offers great drivability and feels smooth in start and stop traffic too. Floor the throttle pedal a little more though and you do get a bit of lag in the shifts. Maruti does not equip the AMT units with a sport mode like most other manufacturers. We think an addition of that sport mode would make the shifts a lot faster making the Dzire diesel AMT as much fun to drive hard as the manual is.

The petrol Maruti Suzuki Dzire engine remains the same 1.2-litre motor that makes 82 bhp and 113 Nm of torque. The big mechanical change in the new generation Maruti Suzuki Dzire though is the addition of the petrol engine with the AMT gearbox in addition to the normal 5-speed manual. Comparatively, the older Swift Dzire had a 4-speed conventional automatic and not the new AMT unit as the diesel had. The AMT unit in the Dzire petrol is the same one that the Ignis petrol AMT gets but with a retune towards a more comfortable and smoother shift pattern. Unlike the diesel, there is a bit more of the shift nod phenomenon between gears at lower revs.

But the gearbox does seem to have no shift shock or sudden shifting between gears though and the petrol revs as freely with the AMT as with the manual gearbox. Just like with the diesel though, the addition of a sports mode would have made the Dzire petrol automatic a much nicer car to drive as compared to how it currently is. That said, we did test both the AMTs on a hilly road with quite a steep incline and although there is no official hill hold or hill start assist, the gearbox does stop the car from rolling backwards after abou a foot or so and holds the car in place till you use the throttle to move forward again. The fuel economy figure on the petrol automatic is 22.0 kmpl which again, is identical to the one you can get on the manual gearbox option.

Maruti Suzuki Dzire Rideing

If there’s one thing about the Dzire that’s completely bowled us over, it’s the ride quality. The suspension is so silent, the ride so plush, and it may sound like a big statement but there’s possibly nothing that unsettles this sedan. We went over some really rough and broken roads but the Dzire’s suspension absorbed them all without any thuds or rattles, especially the AMT variants. There’s none of the bounciness in the rear that used to be felt in the older Dzire. Despite the ground clearance having gone down by 7mm, the Dzire went over speed bumps without grazing its underbody. If comfort is high on your priority, then the Dzire’s got your back. Check for car loans in Fincarz.

On straight roads, and at speeds up to 100kmph, the Dzire feels stable, it’s 186/65 tyres offering a rock solid grip. But it doesn’t offer the same level of confidence in corners. The steering wheel weighs up adequately when driving at lower speeds. As you gather pace, though, it tends to lighten up a bit making you unsure about what the front wheels are doing. The brakes are responsive and get the job done but panic braking situations are best avoided.

Maruti Suzuki Dzire Safety

One of the Dzire’s biggest plus points is that it’s now equipped with dual airbags and ABS right from the base L variant while managing to price it cheaper than the older corresponding L (Optional) variant with safety features by Rs 7,000. That’s a massive statement from Maruti with regard to its focus on safety. What’s important to note is that the Dzire is built on Maruti’s Heartect platform that makes it ready for future safety norms.

Other standard elements of the safety kit include ISOFIX child seat anchorages to secure your young ones and front seatbelts with pretensioner and force limiter. However, reverse parking sensor is offered only in the Z variant and if you want a reverse parking camera as well, you need to buy the Z+ variant. We wish Maruti had provided parking sensors at least in the V variant considering how important they have become for our road conditions these days. Features such as central locking, speed-sensing door locks and anti-theft system were standard earlier but are now offered only from V variant onwards.

Maruti Suzuki Dzire Bottomline

To sum up, Maruti have taken what was a tremendously successful car and turned into a machine that now fully deserves it. The new one is an improvement in nearly every area. It now commands a more premium feeling with vastly improved levels of comfort and features. Starting at Rs 6.5 lakh (all prices on-road Mumbai) for the LXi, the base variants are priced well and are on-par or slightly cheaper than most rivals. However, some may find the Rs 11.3 lakh top end ZDi+ AMT with its auto projector LED headlamps (standard halogens on the rest), reverse camera and clever touchscreen a little too expensive.

Positioning wise, the Dzire is roughly Rs 20-60 thousand more expensive than the equivalent Baleno variant. This means, the Baleno, Ignis, Dzire and even Ciaz are all priced fairly close to each other, with the new Swift due to enter the fray as well. I like the fact that Maruti has not purposefully downgraded one over the other simply to have a staggered price range. This is the era of choice and Maruti/Nexa is ensuring you have plenty of it within their own showroom walls.

Back to the Dzire, careful studying of the features list would suggest that ZXi/ZDi (Rs 8.34 lakh and 9.68 lakh respectively) models seem like the smart choice. They’re well positioned against their rivals while costing a significant Rs 1.1 lakh less than the corresponding + models. In the past, the Dzire may have been the sales leader but it wasn’t our pick of the segment. That may be about to change. Stay tuned for the full comparison!

US : No Change In H1B Visa System

The H1B visa row in India, the US government on Friday said there has been no change in law regarding the H1B regime and the system continued to be as before.</p>

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for State for South Asia Thomas Vajda said no legislation has been passed so far on the particular category of visa. Check for H1B Visa Process in UT Evaluators

“(There is) no change in the law today for H1B (visa) regime or system in the United States… President (Donald) Trump asked for review of the H1B system…but no steps have been taken. Many changes in law, so many cases, require changes of legislation.

But so far no legislation has been passed on H1B. For the moment, the system remains as it has in the past,” Mr Vajda told reporters after an interactive session with members of the Bengal Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Following President Trump’s election as US president on a protectionist platform, the US has announced stricter norms for issuing the H1B and L1 visas.

India’s Commerce Minister Suresh Prabhu said in October that the issue of H1B and L1 visas, which have facilitated the entry of Indian IT professionals, has been raised strongly with Washington.

Responding to a query regarding reducing pet coke imports from the US, Mr Vajda said the US sees energy as the most potential area for increasing economic activities.

“The US is committed to increase energy export and support for India’s economic development,” he said. For H1B Visa Process Visit here

Mr Vajda said both the governments of India and the US have been hopeful and supportive for completion of contract between the Westinghouse Electric Company and the Nuclear Power Corporation of India to build six nuclear reactors in India.

On the Rohingya refugee crisis, he said the US has been providing financial support for humanitarian purposes to the Bangladesh government through international organisations to help out over 600,000 Rohingyas who have fled to Bangladesh from Myanmar since August.

Advantages Of Cloud Based System For Business

stsoft.in

Checking your bank balance on your phone? You’re in the cloud again. Chances are you rely on cloud computing to solve the challenges faced by small businesses, whether you’re firing off emails on the move or using a bunch of apps to help you manage your workload.In short, cloud is fast becoming the new normal. By the end of 2015 it’s estimated that 90% of UK businesses will be using at least one cloud service.

Simply put, cloud computing is computing based on the internet. Where in the past, people would run applications or programs from software downloaded on a physical computer or server in their building, cloud computing allows people access to the same kinds of applications through the internet.When you update your Facebook status, you’re using cloud computing.

Why are so many businesses moving to the cloud? It’s because cloud computing increases efficiency, helps improve cash flow and offers many more benefits…

Check out ten of the best below.

1. Flexibility

Cloud-based services are ideal for businesses with growing or fluctuating bandwidth demands. If your needs increase it’s easy to scale up your cloud capacity, drawing on the service’s remote servers. Likewise, if you need to scale down again, the flexibility is baked into the service.

This level of agility can give businesses using cloud computing a real advantage over competitors – it’s not surprising that CIOs and IT Directors rank ‘operational agility’ as a top driver for cloud adoption.Check for Cloud Based Business Phone System in Linkedphone.

2. Disaster recovery

Businesses of all sizes should be investing in robust disaster recovery, but for smaller businesses that lack the required cash and expertise, this is often more an ideal than the reality. Cloud is now helping more organisations buck that trend.

According to Aberdeen Group, small businesses are twice as likely as larger companies to have implemented cloud-based backup and recovery solutions that save time, avoid large up-front investment and roll up third-party expertise as part of the deal.

3. Automatic software updates

The beauty of cloud computing is that the servers are off-premise, out of sight and out of your hair. Suppliers take care of them for you and roll out regular software updates – including security updates – so you don’t have to worry about wasting time maintaining the system yourself. Leaving you free to focus on the things that matter, like growing your business.

4. Capital-expenditure Free

Cloud computing cuts out the high cost of hardware. You simply pay as you go and enjoy a subscription-based model that’s kind to your cash flow. Add to that the ease of setup and management and suddenly your scary, hairy IT project looks at lot friendlier. It’s never been easier to take the first step to cloud adoption.

5. Increased collaboration

When your teams can access, edit and share documents anytime, from anywhere, they’re able to do more together, and do it better. Cloud-based workflow and file sharing apps help them make updates in real time and gives them full visibility of their collaborations.

6. Work from anywhere

With cloud computing, if you’ve got an internet connection you can be at work. And with most serious cloud services offering mobile apps, you’re not restricted by which device you’ve got to hand.

The result? Businesses can offer more flexible working perks to employees so they can enjoy the work-life balance that suits them – without productivity taking a hit. One study reported that 42% of workers would swap a portion of their pay for the ability to telecommute. On average they’d be willing to take a 6% pay cut.

7. Document control

The more employees and partners collaborate on documents, the greater the need for watertight document control. Before the cloud, workers had to send files back and forth as email attachments to be worked on by one user at a time. Sooner or later – usually sooner – you end up with a mess of conflicting file content, formats and titles.

And as even the smallest companies become more global, the scope for complication rises. According to one study, “73% of knowledge workers collaborate with people in different time zones and regions at least monthly”.

When you make the move to cloud computing, all files are stored centrally and everyone sees one version of the truth. Greater visibility means improved collaboration, which ultimately means better work and a healthier bottom line. If you’re still relying on the old way, it could be time to try something a little more streamlined.

8. Security

Lost laptops are a billion dollar business problem. And potentially greater than the loss of an expensive piece of kit is the loss of the sensitive data inside it. Cloud computing gives you greater security when this happens.

Because your data is stored in the cloud, you can access it no matter what happens to your machine. And you can even remotely wipe data from lost laptops so it doesn’t get into the wrong hands.

9. Competitiveness

Wish there was a simple step you could take to become more competitive? Moving to the cloud gives access to enterprise-class technology, for everyone. It also allows smaller businesses to act faster than big, established competitors.

Pay-as-you-go service and cloud business applications mean small outfits can run with the big boys, and disrupt the market, while remaining lean and nimble. David now packs a Goliath-sized punch.

10. Environmentally friendly

While the above points spell out the benefits of cloud computing for your business, moving to the cloud isn’t an entirely selfish act. The environment gets a little love too. When your cloud needs fluctuate, your server capacity scales up and down to fit.

So you only use the energy you need and you don’t leave oversized carbon footprints. This is something close to our hearts at Salesforce, where we try our best to create sustainable solutions with minimal environmental impact.

Hyundai Creta Overview & Test Drive

Hyundai Creta Overview

The Hyundai Creta was first launched in 2015 and over the years Hyundai has given it minor updates which definitely did boost the sales of the compact SUV. Three years post the initial launch, the Korean carmaker has finally given the Creta a comprehensive update. We say comprehensive because the 2018 Creta now gets a host of new features too.The Hyundai Creta was first showcased in a concept form at Auto China in Beijing in April 2014 and a year later, the compact SUV was launched in India. The vehicle went on to become the darling of the Indian masses. From inception till end-February 2018, Hyundai has sold 2,48,582 units of the Creta in India. Hyundai Creta price range in India is between 10,65,929 to 17,88,328, check for detail pricing of Creta in Carzprice.

Hyundai Creta Design

The Hyundai Creta looks its part as an SUV. Though it is based on the Elite i20 platform, the Creta is more SUV than a crossover hatchback and that is evident with the 190mm ground clearance. The front fascia is dominated by the hexagonal grille, signature Fluidic 2.0. The angular swept backheadlamps look modern and they are equipped with projector beam with LED day-time running lamps.

The profile looks butch thanks to the 17-inch alloy wheels filling up the flared wheel arches, the strong shoulder line and the black cladding that wraps around the car. The tail design has a European touch with the high mounted wraparound tail lamps and the blacked out lower portion of the bumper helping it hide some of the visual mass. The roof rails and the integrated rear spoiler adds to the styling quotient of this impressive looking compact SUV.

Hyundai Creta Cabin

Just like the exterior the interior too has received minor changes as well while the SX+ Dual tone trim gets an all black interior with red and black fabric upholstery, the other trims continue with the same Black and Beige interior.The only significant change made to the interior comes in the form of a new 7-inch AVN system which gets integrated with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirror Link connectivity. Furthermore the Arkamys Sound Mood system now also comes as standard with the Creta S+, SX+, SX+ Dual Tone & SX(O) trims.

Hyundai also introduced a new Executive Variant ‘E+’ trim which gets the 1.4 Litre Diesel under the hood. This trim gets 2-Din Audio with AUX, USB and MP3, Electrically adjustable ORVM with LED turn indicators, Rear AC Vents and a luggage lamp for more comfort & convenience of the occupants.

Hyundai Creta Performance

The 2018 Hyundai Creta facelift doesn’t get many mechanical changes but the 1.6-litre diesel engine gets a tweak in terms of torque delivery. So the peak torque now comes in at a wider band. The pre-facelifted had a torque output of 260 Nm at 1900-2750 RPM while the facelifted model produces the same 260 Nm at 1500-3000 RPM. While driveability has improved, there is some amount of turbo lag and the vehicle gets going once the turbo spools up. The mid-range is punchy and very strong.

The petrol variant now boasts of 3% better fuel efficiency (meanwhile, diesel gets 4% better fuel efficiency than before). The 1.6 petrol’s performance is same as before, there is a good low-end but mid-range doesn’t feel that punchy. Performance is linear but the motor doesn’t spin faster. The gearbox is slick shifting although the clutch has a longer travel. For more info on Hyundai Creta visit painpeters.com 

Hyundai Creta Rideing

The ride and handling, though, is the surprise element of the Creta. Hyundai has got the suspension damping right on the Creta and at high speeds, unlike previous Hyundais, it rides with well controlled body movements. The composure of the setup is evident even for uneven low speed bumps. The insulation keeps the thuds and bangs away from the cabin giving the Creta a silent and plush ride. The steering is precise and but there is a bit of inconsistency in the way it weighs up. The body roll around corners is minimal for its size and it feels safe and secured even when pushed hard. The brakes on the Creta have good bite but a more linear feel would have been welcomed.

Hyundai Creta Safety

Dual airbags and ABS with EBD are offered as standard across the range of the 2018 Hyundai Creta. However, the top-spec trim gets four additional airbags, Hill Start Assist and Vehicle Stability Management as well. Hyundai has a vast sales and service network across the country and the quality of service also has been great.

Hyundai Creta Price

Hyundai Creta On-Road Price in India ranges from 10,65,929 to 17,88,328 for variants Creta 1.6 E Petrol and Creta 1.6 SX Diesel Dual Tone respectively. Hyundai Creta is available in 13 variants and 8 colours. Below are details of Hyundai Creta variants price in India.

Hyundai Creta Verdict

At an on-road price of close to Rs 15 lakh, the Creta petrol auto does justice to the money it demands. It feels big and stylish, the cabin is well laid out and comes loaded with features. The ride is silent and composed and will not tire you, even after a full day of driving. There is enough space for five occupants and their luggage as well. The fit and finish and interior quality is class-leading which makes it feel premium too. The engine and gearbox work well in tandem and are good for everyday driving unless you are after outright performance. By adding the automatic petrol variant in the Creta’s portfolio, Hyundai has given an option for people seeking a stress-free, premium, urban compact SUV.
