Renault Kwid Hatchback Performance & First Drive

Renault Kwid Test Drive in Bangalore

Renault Kwid Overview

When Renault launched the Kwid hatchback back in 2015, it truly became a game-changing product for the French carmaker in India. The car boasted of a bold SUV-like design, smart styling, and a host of segment-first features that made the Kwid an instant hit. In fact, courtesy of the Kwid, Renault India’s monthly sales were at an all-time high for almost a year.

However, like all popular models, the Kwid too slowly started to lose its charm after a while. The carmaker tried to improve its numbers with the launch of a few special edition models like the Kwid ‘Live For More Reloaded’ edition or the ‘Superhero’ edition, but none of them proved to offer any long-lasting solution. With the car’s sales consistently dropping in the last several months, Renault finally decided to take the big step. So, behold! the 2018 Renault Kwid facelift. Yes! After almost three years, Renault has finally given the Kwid a much-deserved update and we got to spend a day with the top-end AMT variant of the car.

Renault Kwid Appearance

The Kwid was a smart hatchback, to start with, and the facelift has made it more attractive still. Styling up front is all new and the new-age split-headlamp set-up conforms to the latest trends. The striking DRLs look nice and are standard across all variants, to boot. The large main headlights get chunky black bezels embellished with orange accents on this top-spec Climber.View offfers on Renault Kwid in Mumbai at Autozhop.

Renault has also upsized the Kwid’s wheels from 13-inchers to 14-inchers, along with giving it chunkier 165/70 R14 tyres across the range. This not only helps the stance, but has also increased its ground clearance by 4mm, to 184mm. Attractive smoked-grey plastic wheel covers are part of the package on the Kwid Climber, while regular versions make use of simpler covers. Meanwhile, LED guide lights in the tail-lamps and the inclusion of reflectors have helped spruce up the Kwid’s rear.

The new bumpers make the Kwid marginally longer than before, and kerb weight is also higher. The 35-40kg increase in weight is thanks to the inclusion of additional structural reinforcements required to comply with latest crash- and pedestrian-safety norms.

Renault Kwid Comfort

Here an even bigger update can be seen as at first glance the Kwid interiors look to be much more expensive that they actually are. There is a bigger 8-inch touchscreen and a new look steering wheel, as well as a much better looking part-digital instrument cluster.The 8-inch touchscreen looks big and is very easy to use with excellent graphics. Elsewhere, some minor tweaks, such as the re-arranging of the AMT control selector and a bigger glove-box, are apparent. The detailing is good and it is a nice-looking cabin overall.

Even the equipment levels now are very good with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, rear parking sensors, alloys, rear arm-rest in place. The new Kwid’s rear camera is actually better than the ones on much more expensive cars.A passenger airbag is optional (as are rear power windows) while the driver airbag is standard, along with other mandatory safety equipment.To know more information on Renault Kwid visit Pasear-w

While the equipment levels are indeed impressive at first sight, the quality on closer inspection leaves a bit to be desired as there are some cheap plastics and hard surfaces which detract from the cabin ambience.

Renault Kwid Engine

Under the hood, the 2018 Renault Kwid continues to come with the same 999 cc three-cylinder petrol engine that offers a maximum output of 67 bhp at 5500 rpm and develops a peak torque of 91 Nm at 4250 rpm. The model we drove comes mated to Renault’s Easy-R automated manual transmission (AMT), which is the same 5-speed unit as before, but unlike the pre-facelift model, this one now comes with the creep function as well. Renault is calling this the Traffic Assist function, which helps the vehicle to crawl at a speed of 5-6 km in drive mode once you take your foot off the brakes. This definitely is a welcome addition for those who frequently drive in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

However, in terms of performance, the AMT unit hasn’t changed much from the pre-facelift model. There’s still a bit of hesitation when the system shifts through the first and second gears and there’s a distinct clunk that comes from the gearbox. In fact, if you try to hurry and floor the accelerator the AMT takes some time to respond and there’s a very noticeable lag. However, in the higher ratios, once the engine reaches around 4000 rpm, the shifts become much smoother and the car really starts to respond well.Check car loan for Renault Kwid at Fincarz.

Renault Kwid Driving

The 4mm increase in ride height and the shift to wider tyres has made a difference to the driving experience. The Kwid has lost some of its pliancy at low speeds, and there is a bit more movement over bad roads. The suspension handles potholes well, but isn’t very silent — you can hear it working over bad roads. As before, the car feels quite planted and sure-footed at high speeds for what is a bantam-weight car. Stability is decent and the wider tyres also give more confidence in the corners. A sore point is the steering — while light and easy to use at city speeds, it lacks self-centring and does not weigh-up sufficiently at high speeds.

Renault Kwid Safety

Braking duties are handled by discs in the front and drums at the rear. Renault is offering rear parking sensors, Driver Airbag, ABS with EBD, seat belt reminders and Overspeed alert as standard. Moreover, on the upper variants, you can get a passenger airbag and reverse parking camera with guidelines to safely park.

Renault Kwid Price in Mumbai

Renault Kwid On Road Price is 3,29,145/- and Ex-showroom Price is 2,75,999/- in Mumbai. Renault Kwid comes in 5 colours, namely Fiery Red,Moonlight Silver,Planet Grey,Electric blue,Ice Cool White. Renault Kwid comes with FWD with 799 CC Displacement and 3 Cylinders with Maximum Power 53 bhp@5678 rpm and Peak Torque 72 Nm@4400 rpm DRIVE TRAIN FWD and reaches 100 KMPH at 16.8 seconds . Renault Kwid comes with Manual Transmission with FWD .

Renault Kwid Verdict

So this brings us to the question, is the 2018 Renault Kwid better than that older model? Most definitely. The Renaut Kwid continues to come with several first-in-class features and is arguably the best-looking car in the entry-level hatchback space. The surprise here though is that there is no change in price. Priced in the range of ₹ 2.66 lakh to ₹ 4.59 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the car still makes for a very good value proposition for anyone looking out to buy his or her first car. Furthermore, the tweaks and the host of new and updated features that Renault has added make the 2018 Kwid just a bit more relevant, especially, with the festive season is right around the corner.

Land Rover Discovery Sport Facelift First Look Review

Land Rover Discovery Sport Overview

The Land Rover Discovery Sport is a perfect amalgamation of British luxury and off-road capabilities. It happens to be Land Rover’s most affordable SUV and is less expensive and more adventurous than its rivals. Also, the 3rd-row seat give it an edge over competition. The 4-cylinder, 2.0-L diesel engine from the Ingenium family offers an increased power output of 237 bhp, though the base model is still equipped with 134 bhp unit. The Land Rover Discovery Sports price in India has been tagged competitively, which makes it a viable option in the segment.

 

Land Rover Discovery Sport Style

The Discovery Sport, unlike the Freelander 2 isn’t boxy, and that’s a welcome change. In fact, a quick glance at it is enough to figure that it draws some inspiration from the Range Rover Evoque. But amazingly, the Disco still manages make its own identity with its subtle design cues.

Look at the Discovery Sport from the front and it screams Land Rover. That smoothly carved out bonnet, and the honeycomb grille grill with the Discovery badge above it give it a clean look up front. And then adding a bit of spunk, there are those sweet looking circular daytime running lamps around the projector headlamps. We particularly liked the way the rear end coexists with the front thanks to certain elements in its design.

The smoked tail lamp cluster too has circular LEDs and there’s the all important Discovery badge above the registration plate. Although the oddball rear design doesn’t look as evolved and butch as the front, the overall styling will surely grow on you over time.

Land Rover Discovery Sport Space

The interior styling of the Discovery Sport matches that of the other new Land Rovers. The new Discovery Sport is the perfect replacement for those who need fresh and modern styling and were hesitating too buy the Freelander2. The Discovery Sport retains high quality interiors but do not expect it to be premium. The Discovery family is about good quality but not premium and there is a difference between the two.

There is the two-dial instrument cluster with white backlight, easy to read and operate. For those not used to Land Rovers the power windows switches are mounted next to the window than the armrest. Another JLR touch is the rising gear knob when you push the ignition switch. The Discovery Sport even has a new centre console, which is simple to operate and functional. The Discovery series is more about being functional than luxurious.

What it misses is the character of the Freelander2, like bigger windows that made the cabin feel airy, the thick and chunky gear stick, the twin vertical chrome strips on the steering wheel that functioned as the horn. These aren’t important but they add some more character the SUV. This is what Freelander did and but the new Discovery series has its own design characteristics.

The things that we liked about the Discovery Sport is the rear seat space and no more stadium like seating that the Freelander2 offered. Then there is also an option of 5+2 seating as well so two children can be seated at the rear making it a complete family SUV. It is available as a fine and seven-seater.

Land Rover Discovery Sport Gearbox

The Land Rover Discovery Sport is offered with a 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine. The oil-burner is offered in two states of tune. The variants with the TD4 trim, including our test vehicle, have the lower state of tune in which the engine churns out 147 HP of power at 3500 RPM and 400 Nm of torque from 1750 RPM. The higher SD4 trim pumps out an extra 40 HP of power and 20 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to the same 9-speed ZF automatic transmission that is also available with the Range Rover Evoque. The Discovery Sport takes 10.5 seconds to complete the 0-100 km/hr sprint which isn’t impressive.

When you flick the gearknob to D and set off, you realise that the engine has almost negligible turbo lag and the SUV responds nicely to throttle inputs but acceleration isn’t aggressive or something that would make you go WOW. Power delivery from the engine is very smooth and linear all the way to the redline. The oil-burner is lacking on power and its top-end performance is really less than satisfactory. The Discovery Sport maxes out at 180 km/hr. The 2.2-litre unit, however, really excels when we talk about refinement or NVH levels which are just brilliant. This is one engine that isn’t meant for quick bursts of acceleration but rather smooth cruising on the highways.To know more details on Discovery Sport  check Icps2016

There is a Sport mode on offer too which ups the performance by a very marginal amount. Again, you do not get pushed back into your seat when you give the car the beans and it accelerates linearly. The Discovery Sport cruises at 100 km/hr at 1400 RPM and 1500 RPM in D and S modes respectively and the engine never feels strained while munching miles. The only thing going against the TD4 tune is the lack of top-end and outright performance.

The SUV churns out good mileage too and we managed to extract 13-14 km/l on our highway tests which is really good for a vehicle of this class. The transmission is also butter smooth and gear shifts go unnoticed to the driver. Land Rover has always been known for its off-road capabilities and the Discovery Sport is no different. It has a 4WD Terrain Response System that has different modes and settings for gravel, mud, snow, etc. types of road surfaces and we must say that this works terrifically well.

Land Rover Discovery Sport Driving

Again, this is the manufacturer’s unparalleled understanding of how a contemporary Land Rover must be made to handle: not, crucially, as a sports saloon might, but rather how something tall, forceful and hefty ought to.

The contrivance at work among its rivals is absent, replaced by the apparently organic fluency of an SUV not disguising its amplified body movements but instead tuning them to an inner-ear-pleasing model of consistency and linear balance.

Apart from an occasionally awkward weight at manoeuvring speeds, the same finesse has been applied to the steering, which allows this mass to be threaded along with the kind of linear delicacy that is rarely accorded to hatchbacks, let alone SUVs.

Consequently, on the open road, the car can be driven swiftly and very pleasingly. Its occasional harshness and questionable refinement notwithstanding, it is the charm of this two-way relationship that defines the Sport as ‘good to drive’ beyond all else, and wonderfully typical of Land Rover’s current output.

Land Rover Discovery Sport Safety

As of this writing, the Land Rover Discovery Sport has not been put through crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. If you’re looking for some SUVs that do well in crash tests, the BMW X3 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee each earn a five-star overall rating from the NHTSA, and both earn a rating of Good (the highest possible) in four out of five categories from the IIHS. The X3 was not put through the Small Overlap Front test, and the Grand Cherokee earns a rating of Marginal (the second-lowest rating) in that test.

Though the Discovery Sport hasn’t been crash tested, it is available with a wide range of advanced safety features to prevent an accident from happening. Standard rear parking sensors and a rearview camera will help you when backing into parking spaces, while the optional 360-degree camera system will let you see all-around the vehicle for even better care when parking. Forward collision warning with automatic braking is available to prevent you from running into something while driving. New for 2017 is a driver drowsiness monitoring system that will detect signs of sleepiness and suggest you take a break from driving.

Land Rover Discovery Sport Cost in Hyderabad

Land Rover Discovery Sport On Road Price is 53,38,306/- and Ex-showroom Price is 44,67,099/- in Hyderabad. Land Rover Discovery Sport comes in 6 colours, namely Santorini Black,Firenze Red,Scotia Grey,grey,Loire Blue,Indus Silver. Land Rover Discovery Sport comes with AWD with 1999 CC Displacement and 4 Cylinders with Maximum Power 148 bhp@4000 rpm and Peak Torque 382 Nm@1750-2250 rpm DRIVE TRAIN AWD and reaches 100 KMPH at 10.3 seconds . Land Rover Discovery Sport comes with Automatic Transmission with AWD .

Land Rover Discovery Sport Final Thought

Should you buy one then? The biggest draw is clearly the prestigious Land Rover badge. And then, there are a lot of options available in the market at that price point including its cousin – the Range Rover Evoque. Moreover when you consider the fact that its arch rivals offer a more powerful motor, then things get slightly more difficult. But then if you want a car that looks good, handles well, is practical and most importantly can take the road unexplored without breaking a sweat then the Land Rover Discovery Sport surely should be on your list.

Spouses Of H1B Visa holders Can Continue To Work

H1B visa sponsorship

In a temporary relief to thousands of Indians living in America, a US court has refused to strike down, for the time being, an Obama-era rule that allowed spouses of H-1B visa holders to work in America.

The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations.

A 2015 rule issued by US President Donald Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama allowed work permits for certain categories of H-4 visa holders, primarily spouses of those having H-1B work visas waiting for their Green Card, to work in the US.

Indians, in particular women, were the greatest beneficiary of this rule, which has been challenged by several US workers with the current Trump administration supporting their cause, saying that it wants to rescind the rule.To know more info on jobs for h1b visa holders check Orphosys Corp.

A three-judge bench of the US Courts of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on Friday sent the case back to a lower court noting that it is “best to remand” to give the district court an opportunity to thoroughly assess and finally determine the merits in the first instance.

“Accordingly, we reverse the district court’s grant of summary judgment and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion,” the federal court said in its order on the lawsuit filed by Saves Jobs USA.

Saves Jobs USA comprises of American workers who claim that they have been laid off due to the policy of the Obama administration to provide work permits to H-4 visa holders.

By making H4 visa holders eligible for lawful employment, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which oversees immigration, sought to “ameliorate certain disincentives that currently lead H1B non-immigrants to abandon efforts to remain in the US while seeking (lawful permanent resident) status, thereby, minimising disruptions to US businesses employing such workers”, the court said.

It noted that the government has explained that H1B non-immigrants and their families often face long delays in the process of obtaining permanent residence, and H4 visa holders’ inability to work during these delays leads to “personal and economic hardships” that worsen over time,

“Increasing the disincentives for H1B non-immigrants to pursue lawful permanent resident status and thus increasing the difficulties that US employers have in retaining highly educated and highly skilled non-immigrant workers”. For more information on H1B Visa visit Byteintobigdata

The judges also observed that the rule will cause more H1B visa holders to remain in the US than otherwise would an effect that is distinct from that of the H1B visa holders’ initial admission to the country.

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Facelift First Look Review

Tamc2011

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Overview

Making its debut in India in 2012, the original Ertiga is one of the most popular cars from the Maruti Suzuki stables. With almost 65000 sold every year since, the seven seater Maruti Suzuki was popular with private car buyers but even more popular with the fleet market. And now there is a new one, a second generation, and it is quite the looker! So what does the all-new next generation Maruti Suzuki Ertiga bring to the table and what are all the changes that Maruti Suzuki has brought in? Well, read on to fine out all you need to know about the new 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga.

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Design

The all-new 2018 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga has a fresh design and it only takes a short glance to realise this. The highlight is the front, which looks straight out of a car and looks good. The chrome studded grille is a first for this price-segment and has been done tastefully to give the vehicle a premium look. Flanking the grille on either sides are sleek headlamp units with projectors that not only bring some sharpness to the design but provide good illumination as well. Tie all these up with a new hood and smart looking bumper and what you get is a front that is no longer boring to look at but has some desirable elements too.

From the side, the new Maruti Ertiga leaves a long impression on your eyes and that’s because it is longer than its predecessor. However, the strong shoulder line running from the tail lamp up to the front accentuates the length and the new alloy wheels also play a considerable part in offsetting the visual fatigue of length. Similar to the front, the rear is completely new and it’s the vertically-stacked tail lamps that take the center stage here. Yes, they are similar to Volvo SUVs but that’s only a good thing on a Maruti. The sharp lines on the boot lid and the bumper compliment the overall design further and make the new Ertiga a good vehicle to look at from the front and rear.

Overall, the biggest change for me in terms of design in the new Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is the fact that it no longer is a bland-looking MPV. Instead, it looks younger, smart and appealing, which should make it appealing to young buyers, something the previous Ertiga wasn’t good at.

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Cabin

The first thing that strikes you is just how upmarket the new Ertiga looks on the inside. A faux wood theme extends across the stepped design dashboard and to be honest even though it is plastic at the end of the day, it does look quite nice. The new Ertiga gets a beige and darker brown two-tone combination across the dashboard and the seats and with a slightly printed pattern on the seats, the overall effect is quite satisfactory. The new Ertiga also gets a flat bottom steering wheel that is wrapped in leather and behind that, an all-new instrument cluster too. Check for Maruti Suzuki Ertiga price in Bangalore at Tryaldrive.

The central console houses the large touchscreen, which has its own inbuilt navigation but also supports smartphone integration options like Apple Carplay and Android Auto. All of us are now pretty used to this particular infotainment setup and honestly, it is one of the better ones offered on a model today. The top spec models get climate control and a start stop button too. Another cool feature – literally – are the cooled or rather ventilated bottle/zup holders (as seen below). That said, all this is well and good but what is most important in the new Ertiga is interior space and this being a new platform brings in a whole lot more space in it than before.

The new Ertiga is longer and wider on the outside and that gives it more space on the inside too. Even though the wheelbase stays the same, the new Ertiga gets more space in the back as the engine compartment has moved slightly forward. The centre row seats are also much more comfortable as compared to the previous generation and as with the last gen car, there is a roof mounted air conditioner unit.

But the big improvement is the space on the last row. While the last gen car had an Achilles heel in terms of people fitting in, this new Ertiga has a lot more space in the third row and is large even for your scribe to fit in – and by no means am I a small human being! The final row of seats also gets a reclining option which makes longer journeys a lot lot more comfortable in general. And while head room might be a slight issue, leg room and the flat floor makes up for it.

The new Ertiga now also gets a larger boot. In fact, it is twice as large as compared to the previous model and that is an important feat. You get 209 litres of boot space with the seats in place and fold the seats down and that space jumps up to a whopping 803 litres. But even with the rows of seats in play, the new Ertiga can easily swallow up large full sized airline bags – something that the older car could only dream of. The Ertiga’s boot also has two panels that can be manually removed and stowed away in the car to give even more depth to the boot. All in all, this is a big big improvement.

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Performance

In terms of engine and gearbox, the biggest change in the new Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is the inclusion of a new 1.5 litre petrol engine, which we saw making its debut in new Ciaz. In is in similar state of tune it develops 104 hp and 138 Nm of torque. This engine also comes with the updated SHVS technology, which we saw in Ciaz and this comes with lithium-ion battery, resulting in higher output and efficiency. The system stores braking energy and it uses it back at the time of acceleration which Maruti Suzuki terms as a Torque Assist. This results in improved fuel-efficiency. This was a short drive but we’ll soon do a detailed test of the car to find its real-world efficiency.To know more info on Maruti Suzuki Ertiga visit Lanetalab

The motor is quite smooth to start with and has adequate power to move around the vehicle with ease. Even on the highways while overtaking the long trailers there is enough power on tap. The other engine option is the tried and tested 1.3 litre diesel engine with a manual gearbox only. In terms of noise vibration and harshness levels the insulation isn’t exceptionally good and it isn’t bad as well so it is at a point where sound that filters into the cabin will not bother you but a slight improvement could have been made as far as the decibel levels are concerned.

The 5-speed manual gearbox works well it is paired well to the engine and the automatic transmission also does a good job but is primarily aimed at someone looking at urban use. Gearshifts happen at a reasonably good pace but the lack of any option to shift manually is a miss.

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Driving

In terms of ride and handling there are lot of changes that have been done to the suspension and a lot of components at the rear have been added. As the result of all these changes the ride quality is quite nice going over bad surfaces and minor undulations is dealt with in a very good manner the cabin stays is largely insulated from these shocks. At high speed also the ride quality is quite impressive and while the handling is pretty much neutral. The Ertiga is not aimed at driving enthusiasts and it isn’t made to go around comers fast so if you are talking about daily and practical uses triple digit speed stability is good and braking too is good. So being aimed at family and adventure usage the Ertiga checks all the right boxes in pretty much all the departments.

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Safety

We generally get a lot of queries and comments – and also the repeated spam – on how Maruti Suzuki cars are unsafe. And while there are some cars that have scored higher or lower in NCAP tests, India’s largest automaker has put in a ton of effort into making its cars safer. The new Ertiga’s platform uses a high percentage of tensile steel and that, combined with the standard airbags on all models means that the car will meet the upcoming crash regulations, according to the automaker. Apart from the two airbags as standard, the new Ertiga also gets ABS as standard on all models and the automatic even gets ESC or Electronic Stability Control as standard.

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Price in Bangalore

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga On Road Price is 8,93,309/- and Ex-showroom Price is 7,44,000/- in Bangalore. Maruti Suzuki Ertiga comes in 7 colours, namely Serene Blue,Silky Silver,Exquisite Maroon,Granite Grey,Pearl Blue Blaze,Radiant Beige,Superior White. Maruti Suzuki Ertiga comes with FWD with 1373 CC Displacement and 4 Cylinders with Maximum Power 91 bhp@6000 rpm and Peak Torque 130 Nm@4000 rpm DRIVE TRAIN FWD and reaches 100 KMPH at N/A . Maruti Suzuki Ertiga comes with Manual Transmission with FWD .

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Bottomline

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga comes out as a winner when looked at from an overall perspective and has a lot of good things going for it. It’s got a good looking design, spacious cabin, good features, a smart infotainment system and it drives and rides well too. The new Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is priced between Rs 7.44 lakh to Rs 10.90 lakh and is nicely feature packed across the variant range. Right now the vehicle has no direct competition although it is being compared to the Mahindra Marazzo. However, keep in mind Marazzo is not a direct rival to Ertiga. It is a vehicle from different segment a slightly more premium vehicle and till the time the new Ertiga has no direct rival it is going to enjoy good sales and will build further on the success of the older model.

What Are The FAQs About School Evaluations

Educational Evaluations in US

Deciding to have your child evaluated is a big step. You may have questions about the process. Here are some frequently asked questions about evaluations.

What happens with the evaluation results?

The results of your child’s evaluation will be used to see if your child is eligible for special education services. If your child is eligible, the team will write an Individualized Education Program (IEP) to meet your child’s needs.

If your child is found ineligible, there are a number of things you can do. Once your child’s evaluation is complete, it can give you a better idea of why your child is struggling in school.

This information can help you figure out the best ways to support your child at home, in school and in the community.

How long does the evaluation take?

IDEA says your child’s school must complete testing and issue an evaluation report within 60 calendar days from the day you give written permission, unless your state has established a different timeframe. For H1B Visa Process Visit UT Evaluators.

After the evaluation report is issued, IDEA allows for another 30 days for the team to meet to discuss eligibility and write an IEP for an eligible student. There are no such deadlines for private testing.

Does the school need my permission to evaluate my child?

The school must get your consent before evaluating your child. You’ll be given what’s called prior written notice.

You’ll also get an evaluation plan telling you which tests and assessments are recommended. If you give consent, you’ll receive information about who will be doing the testing.

What does the evaluation cover?

By law, an evaluation has to get information about all the areas of “suspected disability.” This means it has to cover all areas in which your child is thought to be having difficulty.

These can include health and development, vision, hearing, motor skills, language, self-help skills, academic performance and social-emotional health.

What happens during an evaluation?

The evaluation process involves more than just giving your child a test. It looks at your child’s overall performance in school. This includes observing your child in the classroom and talking with your child.

It also involves looking at school and medical records and speaking with you and your child’s teachers.To know more info on H1B Visa check Agropedia

What are the benefits of getting my child evaluated?

The evaluation process can provide more information about the specific issues that are causing your child’s difficulty with learning. It’s also a way to see if your child is eligible for special education services.

Having special education services can give your child extra support in the classroom to make learning a little easier.

Who does the evaluation?

A team of professionals performs the evaluation. Each member of the team has special knowledge and training in the area that’s being assessed. For example, a speech-language therapist has specialized training in language issues.

A psychologist is trained in administering educational testing. The team works together to look at all of your child’s skills.

Who pays for the evaluation?

If your child is referred for special education evaluation at school, the school is required to pay for it. If the school agrees that there’s evidence of a “suspected disability,” the school district must do a comprehensive evaluation that looks at the trouble areas identified.

You may also choose to have private testing done. Under most circumstances, this is not something your child’s school will pay for.

BMW X6 Facelift Review & First Drive

Bmw X6 Test Drive in Pune

BMW X6 Overview

Coupé SUVs are a bit of an oddball, aren’t they? They certainly aren’t as pleasing to the eye as their conventional boxier siblings, that they are usually based on. It is no wonder then that we haven’t seen too many of them on the road yet, despite the SUV boom. But there are certainly a sizeable number of takers for this body style to warrant their existence and continued development. The BMW X6 kick-started this genre about a decade ago, but back then it was all lumpy and looked bloated. But the coupé crossovers that have followed over the years have become more muscular bodywork and in today’s scheme of things, they appear like the sportier, fastback variants of the SUVs or crossovers that they are based on.

BMW X6 Exterior & Style

 

The external appearance of this second generation BMW X6 explains that it has retained the same body structure from its predecessor. However, it gets much bolder and aggressive in its design that certainly lures the auto enthusiasts. The front facade is fitted with a slightly pronounced kidney bean shaped grille, which is designed with vertical slats and thick chrome surround. This is complimented by the bold lines on the bonnet. The headlight cluster gets a bit sleek and is housed with LED headlights featuring high beam assistance. The bumpers have been redesigned to give a masculine look to the frontage. It has a nudge guard sort of arrangement featuring air inlets. View offers on BMW X6 in Ahmedabad at Autozhop.

It also has round shaped fog lamps along with chrome accents that renders it a premium appeal. From the side facet, it looks more like a crossover and a coupe. It gets all the styling aspects like a set of alloy wheels, body colored ORVMs including door handles and black B pillars. The rear end gives you a glimpse of a sedan, thanks to its boot lid. The tail light cluster is powered by LED brake lights and turn indicators that further adds to its elegance. The rear bumper is in body color, but it seems to be assembled with some sort of a ceramic look-alike material that connects both the exhaust pipes. Overall, this second generation X6 looks refreshing and it will certainly lure the automobile enthusiasts.

BMW X6 Interior & Space

It comes with standard leather seats with Alcantara draped front dashboard. The impressive quality of finishing and stitches make it feel very premium and different. Happily, there is not much left to choose in terms of features and options as BMW offers almost everything as standard on this hulky beast of a carGet yourself snuggled in the seats inside the BMW X6M and the first thing that you would notice is the large 10.25-inch infotainment iDrive screen. Its high resolution and lucid display of features and options along with the dial jog to operate make it very convenient to use. This screen lets you pair phones, play music, access vehicle settings, activate alerts and caution messages and also alter the suspension and transmission settings.The 360-degree parking camera gives a complete view of the surrounding and makes it easy to park and drive around in narrow lanes diminishing the demerits of its large dimensions.

Even the navigation function is extremely useful as it properly displays routed with all the necessary information around the destination point.While some might argue that the X6M is not a practical car considering its odd ball shaped sloping roofline, surprisingly, there is enough space for taller occupants as well in the rear. The rear section can comfortable house three average sized adults without much of a tight squeeze. BMW has worked on the positing of the rear seats by lowering the bench point according to the sloping roofline to make it feel airy.

BMW X6 Engine & Performance

BMW offers the X6 in India with a petrol and diesel engine which offer excellent performance. The xDrive50i produces 407 HP of power and 600 Nm of torque from its 4.4-litre V8 unit, enabling it to sprint from 0-100 km/hr in just 5.4 seconds. We drove the xDrive40d variant which uses a 3.0-litre flat-6 unit to output 306 HP and 600 Nm. Performance is urgent with a tap on the accelerator pedal pulling the X6 quite strongly to high speeds. Power delivery is quite linear with turbolag well contained. 0-100 km/hr takes 6.5 seconds with the top speed being limited to 250 km/hr.

Even though the BMW X6 is quite heavy, performance is effortless and the mammoth amount of torque really helps in keeping the X6 on the prowl without losing breath even at high RPMs. Redline comes in at 5100 RPM and this motor is simply smashing when it comes to NVH levels, making a sporty hiss when you whip the throttle. Mated to a 8-speed gearbox, the X6 has quick shifts which can be manually controlled via either the joystick gearlever or the steering mounted paddle shifts. Shifting into Sports mode makes the vehicle even more eager and holds the gears longer. It even blips the throttle on downshifts, making the X6 quite fun to drive. Expect a mileage of 7-8 km/l in the city.

BMW X6 Driving Dynamics

;The 2017 BMW X6 has four driving modes – EcoPro, Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus. Toggle though any of these modes and the powertrain and the chassis dynamics are altered accordingly. The Sport and Sport Plus modes are for those looking to push the car to the limit. Slot the car in one of these, and the steering weighs up nicely, the dampers stiffen up and the engine revs higher as well.

Show the 2015 X6 a series of bends and you will be surprised how confidently it takes them on. You don’t really feel the 2-ton weight of the car lugging you around while into a corner.For your everyday drives in town there are the EcoPro and the Comfort modes. In these modes the Adaptive suspension offers a plush ride quality over potholes and undulations. However, due to the low profile tyres and the large wheels, the bigger bumps still seep into the cabin. While the stock setup provides comfort, the settings can be individually adjusted using the Driver Experience Control too. Check car loan for BMW X6.

Give Thanks with a Treat for Clients & Referral Partners

Who doesn’t love to receive a tasty treat in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday? Start your Thanksgiving marketing plan by providing the gift of great food, to show your thanks to clients and anyone who frequently sends referrals your way.

You can have something sweet—like pumpkin pie—delivered from a local bakery, or hand out thank you gifts in person for extra impact. Food is always a winner and works well during Thanksgiving.

Personalized Email Marketing for Thanksgiving

Email marketing for Thanksgiving can be a little tricky, but the right message is still very effective. Make your Thanksgiving email marketing stand out by personalizing it for each client, and go the extra mile to create brief video messages for each person to include in your email.To know more information on Real Estate Marketing check Realty DS

A short, personalized email message will show them that you’re thankful, and not just trying to score points with a quick, generic thank you note that’s the same for every client.

Host a Catered Open House

Show some love to your prospects and clients, while obtaining marketing exposure for one of your current properties. Hosting a catered open house with all of the Thanksgiving trimmings is an excellent way to accomplish both goals.

A catered party, where clients can explore the listing and feast on fabulous food, is a unique way to promote your brand, create lasting memories, and demonstrate how your business is willing to go the extra mile for clients.

LinkedIn Ads vs. Facebook Ads

SEO Agency in London

Vivid SEO

Both Facebook and LinkedIn provide a diverse range of ad types, including carousel, video, and lead ads. Since Facebook has a larger user base, your ads are capable of reaching more people. With Facebook you can also target based on more personalized information, like behavior or life milestones. However, LinkedIn offers its own targeting capabilities, and is better at lead generation for businesses.

Finally, let’s touch on the Ads aspect of both platforms.

In terms of variety, both platforms have reached pretty equal footing this year.

While Facebook has boasted a diverse range of ad types for years (we’re talking canvas, carousel, video, dynamic, and lead ads just to name a few), LinkedIn has just added a swathe of different ad types to its mix — including video, carousel, lead ads, and Sponsored InMail content.

Targeting-wise, if you think Facebook has the capability of reaching more people, you’re right. However, this doesn’t mean that LinkedIn doesn’t have powerful targeting capabilities — in fact, it very much does.

Both platforms are centered around user input and serve up ads and content relevant to the information their members give them. For Website design services check RavisNY,

In both Facebook and LinkedIn you can target people based on job title, household income, company, location, and age on both platforms, but you can dig a little deeper on Facebook, targeting users depending on their life milestones, behavior, and more personalized information.

If you’re targeting other businesses, it’s worth bearing in mind that the information on LinkedIn (like job titles and employers) tends to be kept up-to-date more than the information on Facebook, which means you might get more accurate hits if you’re specifically trying to reach people in a certain type of role or industry.

Lastly, it’s important to consider cost.

Usually, you get more for your money on Facebook. This is simply because there are millions more people on the platform who are on-site for far longer than those on LinkedIn. This means that Facebook can afford to serve cheaper ads, because there is less chance of one user seeing the same ad over and over again.

Who Wins? You Decide

While LinkedIn and Facebook do share some very obvious similarities, it’s clear their purpose, and the way people use each site, is quite different.To know more info on SEO Services check Kotra

Which one you decide to use depends entirely on what industry you’re in, who you’re trying to reach, and your marketing goals.

Ultimately, it’s important to note that, ideally, you’ll use both channels to reach your audience wherever they want to be met. Perhaps you use LinkedIn for a targeted lead generation campaign, while you use Facebook to increase brand awareness and engage with your customers.

At the end of the day, both sites offer valuable opportunities to grow your company. However, you’ll hopefully use this guide to decide which site deserves more of your time and resources, and which can give your company the highest ROI.
