Hindustan Motors Ambassador Overview
The car is an adaptation of the Morris Oxford III model. While the Ambassador has been an instant it since its launch in 1958, the success of the car increased over the years due to its study look, basic design and decent power capabilities. The objective of an Ambassador is simple. It is a car designed to transport passengers from one place to another. It may not be the quickest of the means to transport, powerful vehicles to ride but it certainly has that awe factor to it that cannot be replaced by anything else. The car is fondly called as the King of the Roads and it definitely is indeed one of the most relatable cars that was synonymous with the very word car over the years. The car was actually crowned as the World’s Best Taxi by none other than BBC Top Gear.
However years passed and the car no longer seemed contemporary enough to hit high on sales. The image of the ride of powerful and strong went on to the foreign vehicles and the car gradually slipped into the hands of taxi walas. It is not a bad thing though, the car still is one of the most impressive automobile designs ever run in this country. Even to this date, many bureaucrats regard this vehicle as a symbol of excellence and power and prefer using this as their official commuter.
Hindustan Motors Ambassador Exterior
The real muscles of the vehicle are however visible in the front fascia itself. The headlamps are traditional circular shaped and they extend along the bonnet as subtle embedded cylindrical shapes that put themselves different from the vehicle’s otherwise straight design. The bonnet itself has a pinched look with a slight design protrusion going on the front part. This subtle pinch along with the embedded cylindrical shapes are what make the Ambassador legacy stay strong. The front fascia features an interesting design and so does the rare. Though the rear extension is not as big as the front, like present day sedans Ambassador has a decent boot space with the boot door being large enough to fit plenty of truck. If any doubts regarding the sanctity of the boot space of this legendary vehicle, check your television for mid 90’s films and there will always be a bad guy stuffed inside the boot. If a boot is big enough to fit in a person, it sure is big enough for luggage.
The width of the vehicle is 1662 mm and the length extends to 4325 mm. The ground clearance offered by the vehicle is pretty versatile considering the 152 mm measurement. This spacious ground clearance makes the vehicle suitable for both urban as well as rural rides.
Hindustan Motors Ambassador Interior
The height of 1593 mm act as a quantifier of the interior head space. The vehicle is proudly huge and this makes the interiors ever so luxurious in their own right. The leather seats and the standard seating do seem routine but the amount of customization possible with an Ambassador is way more than probably any other vehicle with all the political vehicles and taxis running around the country throughout decades.
Hindustan Motors Ambassador Engine & Transmission
However the 1489 cc diesel engine offers a promising 35.5 bhp output at 4000 rpm and the torque hits a peak of 7.44 kgm @ 2250 rpm. The manual transmission of the vehicle makes things seem a bit nostalgic with every ride.
