Past the Chequered flag to the frenzied cheering of three dozen technicians, drivers, time keepers, marshals, officials and support staff who had made the VRDE their home for the past two and a half weeks. “Adil, you have created history”, crackled the chief time keeper over the radios. Driving the Zest and overcome by excitement and emotion Adil replied, “No, it’s we who have created history”.
You can choose one of three modes on the Multi-drive system - Eco, City or Sport. In the normal or City mode, the turbocharged engine responds really nicely to taps on the accelerator. 'Sport' is plenty of fun. You feel a distinct bump up in power when you hit the switch and there is a bit more punch in the top end too. As a result, overtaking on the highway is quite easy and the Bolt has plenty of power in reserve in this mode. 'Eco' - a step down from 'City' - reduces fuel delivery in an effort to improve fuel consumption.
In terms of safety, Bolt has 9th gen ABS, EBD and CSC - features which are not available in most cars in this segment. ...the gearing is quite tall so one does not need to shift gears all that much even in city traffic. In terms of ride and handling, Bolt is pretty sorted out. The touchscreen infotainment system gives access to navigation, AC, etc. in one place; video-playback option is the highlight.
The first 4.5 months of this year went in coping with the kneecap dislocation and the subsequent MPFL reconstruction surgery I had to get done to fix the ligament that got ruptured. This included intensive physiotherapy for 2 months and even though I am not 100% ok yet, I am at least “kaam chalau” ok.
As I begin to write this post, I realize how privileged I am to be a blogger. I get to attend events and activities, which are exclusively designed by likeminded people for likeminded people. I am glad that I pursued by decision of being a blogger and finally life introduced me to Blogadda!
