The Bold and Powerful Force
Pros : features, comfort, power, price
Cons : no advanced safety features
Just a few days ago, the automobile company launched its first passenger car One. It is a SUV that is priced at just over Rs. 10 Lacs. Force One is expected to make the competition between SUVs of this segment, stiff.
Exterior: Force One has bold, tough and sporty looks. It looks a giant which is a plus point for a SUV. It also has big and wide tyres. The inidcators on the rear view mirror look nice and stylish. The logo of Force fixed on the front grille is very good.
Interior: Force has worked well to keep the interiors of this SUV stylish and elegant. The seats provide nice comfort for everyone. The woodden panel gives it more style. It is very spacious. There is ample room in every row. Plus the trunk has more than enough space available. the audio controls are mounted on the steering wheel, so it becomes easier to control everything. Overall there are no complaints about the interiors.
Engine and performance: Force One is powered by 2.2L, FMTech Turbo Intercooled Diesel Engine which has peak power of 141 ps @ 3800 rpm and peak torque is 321 nm @ 1600-2400 rpm. It is available with only manual transmission. the engine is responsive and smooth. The handling is also good and the power steering works fine. The acceleration decent and the top speed it gets to is 160 kmph. One produces mileage of 10 kmpl in city and 14 kmpl on highway.
Safety: This is worst thing about Force One. There are no advanced safety features. There are no Airbags and no ABS. This could really affect its sales, as people these days want their drive to be safer.
Verdict: Force One is a nice SUV and comes with a very nice price tag. Force should be able to make this a success. People who don't have trust in the new company should go for a test drive first. This would clear their doubts and make them learn that this SUV is really worth.
