Do the looks of a car influence your purchase decisions

BHPian karthi.stark recently shared this with other enthusiasts. Buying a car these days can be a tricky task. With so many options available in each segment in the market, we often evaluate a lot of factors (safety, comfort, etc) before spending our hard-earned money. However, there is one factor that has always got me curious: looks. We hear this extremely often in our lives: looks don't matter, but I often wonder if that is definitely the case when it comes to cars! We own the 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta GX AT and one of the major factors that helped influence our decision is the official Team-BHP review. I remember checking out the forum day in and day out to see if there are any updates from existing owners regarding the running of the vehicle. But if there is one thing I found (and still find) to be a trend in the posts of the Innova review (and even on ownership reports of members who evaluated the Crysta during the process of making a purchase decision), it is that people not being fans of the van-like looks of the vehicle. I have read a lot of posts over the past five years in which members explained how looks were a big let-down for them and therefore decided on another option. Now don't get me wrong. I am definitely not saying that looks will never be a factor in my decision-making process (one of the reasons why I never will consider a Mahindra KUV100). But if I have an option of an ugly vehicle with a five-star safety kit or scores huge in the area of comfort in my wishlist, I will definitely have a hard time arriving at a purchase decision! So my question is: Do looks have a huge influence on your decision of buying a car, even if it scored extremely well in other departments? If yes or no, please explain why. If it depends, please mention the factors! Here's what GTO had to say on the matter:Oh boy, looks matter & how! I'm a total sucker for good-looking things, including - but not restricted to - cars. Will never buy an ugly car, no matter how competent it is. As an example, I love everything about the new Creta, but would never bring one home. On the other hand, some cars can be smart-looking, even if they aren't good looking. For instance, the Innova Crysta. Not the most handsome vehicle, yet a smart-looking one with a strong personality. I'd totally be cool with an Innova Crysta in my garage.Here's what BHPian Eddy had to say on the matter:Not at all. How it looks from the outside is not a deal-breaker for me. There is no car in the market currently that I would reject because of the looks. Also, I would not compromise on any other factor to buy a better-looking car. PS: I own an S-Cross and a Brio, so I am sure you guys get my point.Here's what BHPian RaghuVis had to say on the matter:I have a different take on this question. Two reasons:Looks might not be a huge factor or deciding for many in our forum.End of the day beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So everyone has a different take on what looks good.Ideally, the question should be - Will you buy a car that YOU feel looks ugly even if it ticks all other boxes? My answer is a big NO. I might not be looking for a dashing looking car. But why would I buy a car which I feel looks horrendous (inside or outside)!Here's what BHPian lamborghini had to say on the matter:I personally love the idea of a car that I would turn around to look back at after parking, or just admire while walking the dog or anything! That being said - the cars are mainly driven by a particular requirement first then comes the looks: my daily needs to be something fun to drive first, looks second - explains the S-Cross; similarly we picked up the Etios as it was arguably the best beater for our needs back then - with all similarly priced options being too cramped for comfort.Here's what BHPian Mohitkumaar had to say on the matter:For me looks matter NOW but they did not really matter in 2012 when my parents got our first car and I put some money in it as my share! Why do they matter now? My first decision box is always - Do I get Automatic Transmission? In 2012 autos were rare. They are not that rare in 2022. In 2012 car was paid for by saving both my parents with me contributing from my measly earnings. So we got the cheapest AT car. Now, I will be the one paying all the money! Since I have freedom in the budget I am planning to save a lot before buying. In 2012, we got out our first car. It was to be primarily for transportation so being flashy was not a consideration. In 2022, we have Tata Nano AMT for city transport usage. Hence the main car decision list will keep flashiness as a prominent check box.Check out BHPian comments for more insights and information.

Former Congress leader RPN Singh joins BJP, says better late than never

Politics Singh is the second big exit from the Congress in Uttar Pradesh after Jitin Prasada quit the party last year. TNM Staff PTI Former Union Minister and senior Congress leader RPN Singh on Tuesday, January 25, joined the BJP in New Delhi in the presence of the saffron party's Uttar Pradesh in-charge and Union minister Dharmendra Pradhan. Singh is the second big exit from the Congress in Uttar Pradesh after Jitin Prasada quit it last year. Prasada joined the BJP and later became a minister in the Yogi Adityanath government. This is a new beginning for me and I look forward to my contribution to nation-building under the visionary leadership & guidance of the Honourable Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi, BJP president Shri @JPNadda ji & Honourable Home Minister @AmitShah ji, Singh, a former Union minister, had tweeted before his joining. Besides Pradhan, Jyotiraditya Scindia, who quit the Congress to join the BJP and is a Union minister, was also present for Singh's joining-in ceremony. Singh joined the BJP a day after he was included in the Congresss list of star campaigners for the first phase of elections in Uttar Pradesh. Before he quit Congress, Singh was the in-charge for Jharkhand affairs of the Congress, where the party is in power along with the JMM. He has earlier represented the Padrauna assembly constituency and had defeated Swami Prasad Maurya from Kushinagar in the 2009 Lok Sabha polls. Singh thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP chief J.P. Nadda, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and party leadership for inducting hime in the BJP family.I worked hard for 32 years in Congress but it is no longer what it used to be. Many asked me to join the BJP for a long time, but I can only say 'Der aaye durust aye (better late than never). I will work as a 'karyakarta' (worker) towards fulfilling Prime Minister Modi's dream for nation-building, Singh said. The former Union minister said that the way the BJP government has worked hard to improve the law and order situation in the state is commendable. I will do everything that is assigned to me as a small party worker for the development of Uttar Pradesh and country, Singh added. Before officially joining the BJP, Singh tweeted, This is a new beginning for me and I look forward to my contribution to nation building under the visionary leadership & guidance of the Honourable Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi, BJP President Shri @JPNadda ji & Honourable Home Minister @AmitShah ji. A former Union Minister of State for Home, Singh has been MLA and MP from the party. The Congress has been facing a major exodus of its leaders in Uttar Pradesh. Recently, three candidates named by the party switched sides to other parties. Singh will be a high profile exit from the Uttar Pradesh Congress after Jitin Prasada, who quit the party and now is a minister in the Yogi government. Singh is an influential leader in his area, but could not win two consecutive elections on the Congress ticket. Sources said that he is likely to be fielded on a BJP ticket from the same seat against Samajwadi Party's Swami Prasad Maurya, who recently left the saffron party.

Tesla Cybertruck production-ready electric pickup leaked

Tesla unveiled its Cybertruck concept almost two years ago. Now, images of what seems to be the near-production ready Cybertruck have leaked online. The images of the prototype are said to have been taken by a Tesla employee and reveal the changes made to the final model before entering production. In these images, the Tesla Cybertruck can be seen with a single windscreen wiper at the front, positioned next to the A-pillar. The all-electric pickup can also be seen with conventional side-view mirrors, flared wheel arches housing the wheels with a design similar to that of the Model 3. The pickup has no door handles, while the LED light bar at the front is similar to that seen on the concept. Tesla is also said to have updated the front bumper, which now appears larger and lower. While this would help with aerodynamics, the larger bumper could impede the pickup's off-road capabilities. The Tesla Cybertruck is said to receive an updated camera system and a self-driving chipset before entering production. Source: Twitter

My Hyundai Creta 1.5 petrol MT: 3,500 km ownership review

BHPian abhisekbit recently shared this with other enthusiasts. Hello everyone, Let me share with you the initial ownership experience of my new car Hyundai Creta SX Executive 1.5 Petrol Manual post 3.5k kms on the odo. There are very few posts in the forum on the 1.5L Manual petrol and I thought of sharing my initial experience. My previous car was a 1.5L Diesel Honda Amaze which I have driven for 1.18L km and hence the experience will be catered from the point of view of a past Honda customer driving a diesel car. Last pic with the Amaze. Let's start.Cons/DislikesI would like to highlight the pros/cons based on the price point and compared to my previous cars and the cars I rejected.No Telescopic Steering - Fortunately, I have got a good driving position without this, which was not there in my previous car. But still a miss in the price range.Missing Switch Illumination - Glaring miss, have to fiddle around at night, still have not used to the layout of switches.No Request Sensor in the passenger side door - Another good to have feature missed, Honda City has sensors on both the front doors. Immensely helpful if you want to put some bags in the front passenger seat without taking out the key.No Powered Tailgate or hands-free tailgate opening - Am I asking too much at this price point? But again Hyundai Verna which is cheaper than the Creta has this so why not.Hard Plastic in the door pads, no soft-touch material in the door armrest - Available in higher versions though but not in SX minus. Plan to do it aftermarket.Low-Quality Plastic in the centre console - Everyone is complaining about it. When you push it or press against it, it makes noise. Don't know what will happen after 2-3 yrs. Makes me absolutely angry to think about this panel when other panels are of good quality. Why this miss or is it with the SX Executive version in which they had changed this panel.Lack of Low-End Torque in 1st and reverse gear (comparison with Diesel) - This is because I am used to the torque of the diesel engine. So here in 1st gear, you have to accelerate if you want to move ahead. Similarly for the reverse gear, if you are parking in a slope (like my garage), you have to hit the accelerator to get this moving back. Faced no such issues in my diesel Amaze.No Drama as No Engine Noise - This should be a positive feature. The engine is so so silent you can hardly hear it. Even when you rev you can hardly hear a thing. So basically I am missing the sporty engine note.No Automatic Day-Night IRVM (available in higher version) and No Automatic Wiper (though not a deal-breaker for me) - Day-Night IRVM should have been a must at this price point. Automatic Wiper - kind of ok I presume.No Mark for Petrol/Diesel on the Fuel Lid (I have removed the VIN sticker though) - Why? Should have had a label. I know it comes with a sticker in the rear quarter which mentions the version and the VIN and going by recommendation have removed this sticker. DIY Headroom for taller passengers for the sunroof - My friends and family didn't find any issues but taller (6 foot plus) people might have an issue with the headroom in the sunroof versions.Pros/LikesFuturistic Design + Headlight + Taillights - It is quite a looker on the road. Excellent road presence, the DRLs look funky and the lights at night look futuristic. The car looks better in actual life than in print/digital. The design is surely polarising but looking at the sales figure I think people have generally liked the step up from Hyundai. The previous version was conventional and sticking to the same design elements might not have worked in 2020. Kudos to Hyundai for bringing something different. Again looks are subjective and everyone may not like it. The design has actually grown on me and others. Some pics from my last drive to Netarhat. Panoramic Sunroof - One of my prime factors in selecting the car and having loved every moment of it when opened (the shade remains open always). Recently I went to Netarhat and watching the Pine trees and the mountains was bliss. Surely a differentiating factor and a +1 over the Seltos in the same price bracket.Airy Cabin + Space - This is where Creta nails it. Lots and Lots of space, large windows with low window line and greige (white) interiors. Plus the large panoramic sunroof and you won't feel claustrophobic.The front seats are large and supportive and supremely comfortable. It has decent under-thigh support in the front and good lumbar support. Can vouch for the driving comfort after the 1700km road trip where I hardly dropped a sweat or had discomfort.Rear seat has ample legroom and under-thigh support is also decent. The corner seats due to the ingress have low under-thigh support though.The armrest at the front does not slide forward but is at a good height and offers decent storage.Rear Seats have adjustable headrests and supremely comfortable pillows. But my better half concluded the fixed headrests in the Amaze to be better for sleeping by resting the head. Had to convince her that headrests are more of a safety feature rather than a comfort feature. Fixed Headrest in AmazeGood Quality Dashboard + Superbly Visible Instrument Cluster - The dashboard design is simple and elegant. Not as busy as the Seltos, it provides good ergonomics and visibility outside. All hard plastics though but the plastic quality is good and feels durable (except the gear console panel). The white portion behind the steering wheel seems to have a bit of reflection but not to the point of annoyance or I have just got used to it and ignore that in my view-line.Now in this version, you get the analogue instrument cluster and boy oh boy, it's elegant. I was initially cribbing about the lack of digital cluster but this looks simple, readable and fantastic at night. Visibility is superb at day and night. Recently I came across a youtube video where the analogue cluster could be replaced with a digital one as in SXO for 27k with all functions working. Looks like everything is plug and play in this car. PS: My 5-year-old son has found a defect in the instrument cluster. Why does it show the animation of the SXO version (because of the diamond cut alloys) instead of SX executive? I guess Hyundai also did not think of it or anyone else noticed it. Drive experience - Supremely Refined Engine, Smooth Gearshifts, Light Clutch and Braking1.5L Petrol NA: Here is what the apprehension started. Is the 1.5L good enough, powerful enough? Before buying, I scanned a lot of Youtube videos and TeamBhp posts but there was a lack or less of information on this engine. Some said it's underpowered and here are my thoughts on it.The engine is supremely refined. Refinement levels are at a different league altogether, you can hardly hear the engine even if pushed beyond 3k rpm. What you hear is tyre and wind noise and it can effortlessly clock 100kmph +.The engine is very tractable and does not get fazed by higher rpm and lower speed. You can even stroll around at 25-30kmph at 6th gear without the need to downshift. Even at speeds of 120+ at 6th gear the engine does not feel stretched whatsoever and rpm is at 2k-2.5k. Never felt the lack of power in the 1700km road trip with 100-120kmph speeds and twisted inclines of Netarhat with a full load of passengers and luggage.It's not rev-happy like Honda's i-VTEC but rarely there would be any need to go past 4k rpm. It builds power in a very linear way and as it's a NA there is no turbo lag.Coming from a diesel engine it surely lacks the torque and punch in the lower rev band. But things move quickly post 2k rpm and third gear. Pull in the third gear and things get peppy.The constant upshift reminder is annoying though and I still haven't found a way to disable it. Every 10kmph it asks you to upshift.The 6th gear is a boon for cruising on the highway without sipping too much juice.To summarise, this engine is for those people who want a comfortable, relaxed drive in city or highway cruising at acceptable speeds and not pushing the limits of the machine. For the performance enthusiasts, I would suggest the Turbo Petrol or the Diesel with higher torque.Mileage: City - 11-12kmpl, Highway - 15-16kmpl. Cruise on the highway around 100kmph and 6th gear and you can extract 17kmpl +.Hyundai makes the smoothest manual gearbox and here is no different. The gears slot into place effortlessly and it's an absolute joy to shift gears. (Though you do not need to shift often ). Coupled with a light low travel clutch it makes the driving absolutely effortless and comfortable.Really enjoyed the One Touch Cruise Control. It's an absolute boon on the highways. What I enjoyed the most is the resume function where the car picks up the speed at an incredible pace.The 4 disc brakes work wonders, the brake bite is very good. Nothing to complain about.Remote Engine Start - Gimmick or what. This version doesn't have the BlueLink Feature but you can start the car from the remote key and turn on the AC to get the cabin cooled. Haven't quite used this, just used only for show off and demonstration purposes.Soft Suspension provides a cushiony ride over bad patches - Suspension is on the softer side which enables it to tackle the bad patches with ease. It glides over potholes and rough surfaces and you cannot feel a thing in the cabin or hear the suspension work. The suspension is stiffer than the previous generation Creta but softer than the Seltos. Being an SUV and soft suspension it does have a bit of a body roll in corners if tackled at a higher speed but since most of my driving would be in City, I feel the softer suspension is a better setup.Light Steering at low speeds, extremely good for cities, weighs up excellently at higher speeds. - Another thing where past Hyundai's had a lot of critics. But the steering in Creta is definitely a step up for Hyundai. It's light and easy at low speeds and weighs up extremely well on the highways. Tried to push it in cornering and the car was quite direct in changing direction. Definitely inspires confidence. No sloppiness in the dead centre.These are my first impressions of the car. Things to watch out for is definitely the ASS from Hyundai. I will try to keep this post updated from time to time if something new/issue comes up. Check out BHPian comments for more insights and information.

Tesla aftermarket carbon-fibre parts to be made by Koenigsegg

Unplugged Performance - the California-based Tesla Tuner has partnered with Koenigsegg Advanced Manufacturing to produce aftermarket carbon-fibre aero parts for various Tesla models. Dubbed UP x KAM, the partnership will see Swedish supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg use their carbon-fibre expertise to produce parts designed by Unplugged Performance for different Tesla models. The partnership will initially start offering carbon-fibre spoilers for the Tesla Model 3, Model S, Model X and Model Y. Further to this, the Tesla Model 3 will be offered with wider front fenders as well as a 'high downforce' spoiler. UP x KAM has also promised that more aftermarket parts for each of the models will come soon. Also, all carbon-fibre parts from the partnership will show off their connection with Koenigsegg. The aero parts, however, aren't cheap. The spoilers for the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y are said to be priced at US$ 1,745, while the long-tail spoilers for the Model X & Model S will retail just under US$ 2,500. The wide front fenders for the Tesla Model 3 will cost the customer close to US$ 8,895. While the parts are said to help improve downforce, there is no word on how these will impact the vehicles' range. Source: RoadAndTrack
