Driving at Night

It’s that time of year again — when we turn back our clocks and lose an hour of precious daylight. With the end of daylight savings time, traffic and accidents increase at evening rush hour due to the lack of visibility. Don’t fall back on road safety!

Read on and practice these cautionary tips for night time driving.

1. Use Headlights

It is actually a good idea to get in the habit of having your headlights on more often than not. At the very  least, you should turn your headlamps on about an hour before dusk. This makes it easier for you to see as the sun  sets, but also makes you more visible to other drivers


2. Back Off

While it is never a good idea to follow too closely, this bad habit should be avoided during dark hours and  when weather is bad. There are several reasons this is a terrible rule to break during night driving.


3. Keep Your Eyes Moving And Be Alert

The best way to avoid an incident at night is to be watching for lights and movement and keep checking  those mirrors. It is as important to keep an eye out for other cars’ headlights as it is to spot other things, such as    cars without headlights.


4. Take regular breaks

It’s always advisable to take regular breaks when driving long distances, but this is even more vital when you’re  driving overnight.


5. Stay Awake

While many drivers actually prefer night driving when it comes to trips or other long hauls on the road because it is cooler in the summer and the roads are less crowded, it can be more dangerous. Because your body, for most people, is accustomed to sleeping once dark sets in, starting off on a road trip with hours of driving instead of sleep ahead and can be tricky to get your body to agree to. So, be aware of this and plan accordingly.

2017 Kia Picanto Revealed!!!

Overview

The third-generation Picanto will be presented in European specification at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show this coming March. Kia has unveiled the third-generation Picanto city car to take on the new Holden Spark. Now in its third generation, the Picanto has adopted more sporty styling inspired by Kia’s potent Ceed GT and Pro Ceed GT models. 

picanto-overview

The profile borrows much from the larger Rio, with a simple and subtle look, while the rear of the new Picanto will build on its predecessor’s hooked tail-light design. In GT-Line form, the 2017 Kia Picanto boasts a sporty chromatic identity and a body kit inspired by hot hatchbacks.

Interior

The interior exhibits a vibrant design dominated by oval-shaped outer air vents, a neatly integrated touchscreen-based infotainment system, and two-tone part-leather seats. Leather (or perhaps synthetic hide) adorns much of the furnishings including seats, steering wheel, door arm rests and gear gaiter complete with red flashes or stitching.

picanto-int

The interior changes are headlined by a new young audience-targeting central touchscreen which appears to offer access to a number of services including navigation, while the surrounding hardware has been modernized with a symmetrical look and digital control panel.

Styling

The main changes will mostly be seen up front where the firm’s latest signature ‘tiger’ grille will be found flanked by new headlight clusters with bold LED daytime running lights. Regarding technology and safety, the highlights come in the form of a more rigid chassis and body, Torque Vectoring Brake Based , Autonomous Emergency Brake, and a knee airbag for the driver. 

styling

The theme continues into the cabin, where the Picanto will feature a Rio-like ‘floating’ look for its main display screen – still a popular trend across the market. The Picanto has a 15mm longer wheelbase compared with the current model.The GT Line model features a bright red trim piece from almost every angle.

Engine

The replacement Picanto is expected to use heavily revised versions of the existing 1.0-litre and 1.25-litre petrol engines. Kia’s excellent 1.0-litre turbocharged, three-cylinder engine used in the Cee’d may also be a possibility, but whether Kia decides to fit the 98hp variant into the Picanto is yet to be confirmed.

2017-kia-picanto-engine

Power for the new Kia Picanto is likely to come from the same 65bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder and 85bhp 1.25-litre four-cylinder engines, while low emissions and strong fuel economy will give the newcomer a fighting chance in the hard-fought city car class.
