Thanks for A2A ; I like the question may be one of the best question in my view and it falls under my favorite category. Most people depend to much on the text books just reading what it says . They do not try to come out of it and try to explore more about it. Ill just say about the topics and its your work to google them :) Engine technologies. Direct injected petrol engines (GDI gasoline direct injection) ,Vigneshwarraj Chandrasekaran's answer to Why are GDI engines not being used in India in place of MPFIs? What are the advantages and disadvantages of both? HCCI engines ( Homogeneous charge compression ignition ) Cylinder deactivation Variable valve timing ( mostly found in petrol engines) ,Vigneshwarraj Chandrasekaran's answer to What is a VVT engine? Variable geometry turbo (VGT), Vignesh War Raj's answer to What is turbo engine? There are researches to make Petrol engine as compression ignition ( preventing detonation and controlled ) Multi air by Fiat Multi jet diesel engines by Fiat Fuel stratification in petrol engines Hybrid , semi hybrid engines Exhaust gas re circulation to prevent NOx Kinetic energy recovery systems Variable compression engines ( petrol engines ) Lean combustion in both petrol and diesel engines Peizo electric fuel injectors Nitro boost Engine auto stop and start while idling Transmission Automatic transmission ( dual clutches) ,Vigneshwarraj Chandrasekaran's answer to What is the difference between automatic and semi-automatic cars? Slipper clutch in bikes Centrifugal actuating multi plate clutch (rekluse clutch) All wheel drive (AWD) Types of differentials (LSD , locked up or torsen type ) Vehicle control modules Anti collision braking Electronic braking distribution Pre safe brakes Hill hold and hill decend control Electronic stabilty program Lane keeping assist Adaptive cruise control Driver attention assist Innovations Audi matrix headlights Static bending head lights Automatic climate control ORVM control Autonomous driving Safety SRS Airbags Crumble zone in cars Bio weapon defense mode in Tesla Tire pressure monitoring ( so no need to repair punctures) Blind spot detection Occupant sensitive airbags ( can detect is it a Kid or empty seat or heavy parcel on the seat) Suspension Magneto fluid dampers Multi link suspension Torsion beams (semi independent) Still there are much more technologies , hidden in cars most are under development stages If you find any other technology in automobile just comment below , ill just add up :P A automobile is a field which incorporates almost all field of sciecne , hats off to modern world
Land Rover (original Range Rover, Range Rover sport, Range Rover Velar) Jaguar (f-pace, xj) High-end Germans (above 1.2 crore rs.) Lamborghini Urus to name a few…… Not many car manufacturers are interested in introducing radar-based safety features in indian cars.
The GLC 200 is basically a C class Mercedes and the 200 means it has the smaller engine option. Distribución cruise control is an expensive option so Mercedes probably didn’t even offer it as an option on that car.
As a general industry practice, carmakers increase the ground clearance of vehicles in India due to the amazing road conditions. Some high-end cars even have a specific setting within their adaptive suspension systems to increase the height of the car by an inch (case in point, Lamborghini Huracan). Others merely jack up the suspension as the default setting. Almost all of the models that are sold globally vary in some aspect across every market. To generalize, models in developed markets will be similar in terms of build quality and features and those in the developing ones will be rather inferior. There are a lot of factors that these companies take into account when making those decisions, but mostly it depends on the purchasing power of the people in that market and the government's regulations. I'll give a few examples here. Suzuki Swift The car comes equipped with powered seats, better infotainment system, more powerful engine options, and most importantly better safety features giving it a Euro NCAP rating of 4 stars. In contrast, Indian swift scores a measly 2 on safety, 1 engine option on either Petrol or Diesel. Hyundai i10 Similar story where they have a much better build quality, isofix mounts for child seats, etc. Honda Civic This is where it gets interesting. In this segment of cars, you will notice a huge difference in features primarily due to the fact that developed countries make it mandatory to provide certain features in such cars. But that kind of regulation is non-existent in India. Features the UK model offers that Indian one doesn't: Emergency braking system Lane departure alert Lane keeping assist (keeps the car in lane and also navigates through a turn without driver input) Adaptive cruise control (maintains a set distance from car ahead, brakes and cones to a halt of the car in front does so.) Traffic sign recognition If cars are sold with features same as developed markets in India, they would cost on par with premium luxury brands. And no one in their right minds would shell out 50L for a Honda, Toyota or Hyundai. VW tried it once with Phaeton (S class rival) at 90L sticker price… failed miserably. For a list of all features that differ in Indian cars, just look for car configurators of your favourite make across different countries. Hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
Adpative cruise control is achieved by radars. The radars used by automotive radars have bandwidths between 24 to 26.5 GHz, or 76 to 81 GHz, but the bandwidths around 24,76 and 81GHz, are reserved by the telecommunications department of India. So the existing automotive radars cannot be used in India to achieve adaptive cruise control. Therefore Indian cars don’t have this feature.
