Honda WR-V - The Urban SUV

Honda City 2017 images

Honda WR-V will be presented to emerging markets from India to Brazil. It is a crossover based on Honda Jazz. The compact SUV is increasingly spreading across the world. Honda is no exception and want to follow the trend fully. It is primarily aimed at a younger audience and with an active lifestyle. The muscular and dynamic model, which opens new opportunities for the Japanese brand, will be sold in 2017 at starting price of Rs 7.75 lakh.

The front is solid and contains the shape of a "V". Do not miss any of the details, such as alloy wheels with the new design and fog sculpted. The similarities with the HR-V are clear, but the WR-V will be based on the small Jazz. The size therefore will be four meters, but, thanks to the decisive lines and raw plastic wheel, the WR-V seem to belong to another category.

The ground clearance is a bit higher than usual and there are ample protections on the body. The official press release for now does not provide any technical details. It was developed by the Centre for research and development of the Brazilian Honda, according to the needs and tastes of local customers. The segment is that of compact urban crossover, which has achieved great results globally.

Finally, WR-V is all a new acronym, which stands for Winsome Runabout Vehicle, roughly translated as attractive compact vehicle. The WR-V acronym respects apparently the logical choice by the Japanese for the names of its SUVs and crossovers, such as the HR-V or the CR-V. he WR-V does not stray from the typical portrait of crossover.

The Japanese company has decided to challenge other manufacturers, such as Ford EcoSport and Renault Duster in large countries like Brazil, however, where sales are in strong decline in India. The debut is expected for the first half of 2017, probably with the same flexi fuel unit which is already equipped in Jazz, that is the engine of 1.5 liters with a CVT gearbox and front traction. In India, Honda WR-V will go on sale with two engines with a petrol and a diesel version.

What we can see from the sketch is an aggressive and innovative design for the house, with pronounced edges and the classic raw plastic protections applied to bumpers and wheel arches.

Egg Curry Recipe

Egg curry in India is known as Anda Curry that is a very simple recipe and is very popular with children. Perfect for lovers of hardboiled eggs, the spicy curry enhances the flavor. In this dish, the hard-boiled eggs are stir fried and then added to a sauce. It is served over steamed rice in India. Eggs can be added to any type of sauce you like. In this instructable I have shown how to make it with peas and tomato sauce.

This week I propose a curry eggs, a dish I wanted to replicate for some time after I had tasted the homemade version prepared by a friend. When I announced that dinner was planned with a curry of eggs it unexpectedly cause generalized reactions of astonishment. And so I realized that it has taken for granted that everyone to know that there are several varieties of curry, not only as regards the main ingredient, but also for the combination of spices and flavor to be obtained. So I decided to make a brief discussion on the curry to have some clarity on the subject.

An Italian Meal with my friend at Da Mauro

As I walked down the street, distracted by my thoughts and my memories, the smell from a nearby pizza shop invaded my senses and immediately my mind was transported to a recent visit to an expat friend's house. My friend, John lives in Central Park Resorts at the heart of Gurgaon. I'm not a huge fan of Gurgaon given the dusty roads, pollution, bad traffic and civic sense, but Central Park Resorts is another world in itself - an ample green environment with the usual facilities like amphitheatre, gym, spa, kids play area etc. But two things really caught my eye - the town-ship is automobile free and golf buggies are used to commute on surface. That sounds downright futuristic and something only the millionaires could afford, right? But there it was, right in front of my eyes in Gurgaon! Well, the future is really here I guess.

But what really got to me is the second thing - something situated inside the Central Park Resorts township. Read on:
