All New Ford Fiesta Sedan Rendered - Looks Attractive and Pleasing December 10, 2016 13:01

Ford Fiesta has been doing business for very long time and Theophilus Chin has made an awesome showing with regards to rendering the 2018 Fiesta car. The rendered image of the 2018 Ford Fiesta sedan portrays the car with a bold front fascia, larger boot and sharp taillights. It sports a new large front grille with horizontal chrome finished slats. The front grille comes designed in line with the current generation Ford models. It looks identical to the front grille of India-spec Ford Aspire compact sedan. The car also gets front spoiler from the Fiesta Active. It boasts big multi-spoke alloy wheels, sharp character lines, chrome trim at the glass area. The rear profile of the 2018 Ford Fiesta sports sleek taillights unlike the bulkier taillamps in the old model. The car features a sunroof, which enhances its style further. In this way, the craftsman has envisioned the Fiesta in a sharp and appealing appearance from each point. On the off chance that the American automaker chooses to reestablish the Fiesta, it could get a scope of powertrain alternatives. On the petrol front, the sedan could get a 1.1-litre engine and of course the very popular 1.0-litre EcoBoost motor as well. On the diesel front, Ford could offer a 1.5-litre engine under the hood of this car. For transmission duty, there could be options of both manual and automatic gearboxes. Ford has already the Aspire Sedan on offer in India. Aspire sedan is a capable product but yet it needs to grab a fare share. It would be a big thing if ford enters in India because it would be against Honda City and Maruti Ciaz. Also Read: Volkswagen Polo 180 TSI spotted testing Source: Vicky.in

SC Hears PILs on Demonetization Policy December 09, 2016 16:44

The Supreme Court on Friday started hearing some petitions and public interest litigation (PILs) questioning the demonetization policy of the Central government, which came into effect from November 8. Arguing for the Centre, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi told the court that "the government had taken all the necessary steps to ease inconveniences of the general public." The Supreme Court asked the Centre, "When you made the policy on demonetization, was it confidential?" Chief Justice of India TS Thakur also asked the Centre as to why the order of granting limit of Rs 24,000 per day to a person had not been complied with. While responding to the SC, the Centre asked it not to interfere with demonetization as it was a monetary policy. Demonetization is a monetary policy, a court shouldn't interfere." The Supreme Court also outlined nine questions for the adjudication to choose whether demonetization was undemocratic or not. The apex court will start the hearing on the demonetization matter again on December 14. The hearing was adjourned on Monday and moved to Friday as CJI TS Thakur was on leave. Several petitions were filed, comprising one by Vivek Narayan Sharma, against the policy that has created huge changes across the nation. The petitioners have asked the government's rationale and modus operandi behind the implementation of the policy which has reportedly created nuisance to the general public.
