“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Code named KAPPA

Okay now let me confess that along with bikes.............I also keep on the look for cars, every kind of cars, compacts, sedans, salons and exotics!!!

But of late my indulgance with cars is more due to the fact that, after returning from US, I'm very seriously thinking of buying a car (and that's solely due to family reasons). So, I keep on looking through the forest and try to analyze every wild weed I come across. So, today I was going through Hyundai's India site when a flash ad caught my attention!!

So, with the quite unconventional name tingling my gray matter, I did a quick googling for the car and found something which I thought is worth sharing for all those dudes there who are also looking for getting themselves one of these new puppies

Basically Hyundai is actually trying to upgrade the engine capacity of the car by an addition .1L, i.e. a 1.2L variant of the existing i10, producing an addition 15bhp over and above the 66.7bhp as produced by the current i10.

The new engine, code named Kappa is being produced in full swing in the company's Chennai plant and Hyndai is looking forward to it's release in a couple of months. Now that should be exciting. If somebody asks me I would say it's a well directed aggressive move by Hyndai, which is anticipating a hit by the soon to be launched Maruti Suzuki Splash, which also would be available in 1.1L and 1.2L petrol vairants and a 1.3L deisel variant.

Also, in an attempt to suite the ramifications of the decisions taken by our beloved Finance Minister, the company is also planning to launch a LPG driven variant of the Santro by August this year.

So, guess the dead calm would giving it's way to quite a bit of hussle in a couple of months.... So, till then just keep guessing. :D

  1. You can also look for chevrolet spark as prices for this has gone down...

  2. Minu!!

    No doubt Chevrolet Spark is a great car in this category and I researched about that one too..... but it's a bit too cute looking for me :). Apart from that, it's spares and maintenance are a bit more than the Hyndai and Maruti.

    Thanks a lot for leaving your comments.

  3. Chevrolet Spark is attractive, distinctively shaped front headlights and round tail lights define its unique character in short a cute looking family car and loaded with all necessary features.
