Merecedes Benz GLC Class Performance

Auto
OVERVIEW ; Mercedes-Benz has been on a very strong product offensive in the Indian market and their portfolio consists of a wide array of cars from different segments.

Now the Stuttgart-based automaker is bringing down the GLC to India to fill that void. We drive this SUV in South India and here’s how it fares. Check for review, features & price of Merecedes Benz Cars STYLE AND DESIGN ; The new GLC is a C-Class equivalent in the SUVs.

Datsun GO Features & Specifications

Auto
OVERVIEW ; Nissan is one of the most popular car companies in the world, known for offering well engineered products which rank high on quality and performance. Datsun on the other hand is owned by Nissan since a very long time and had its roots in the USA, where it was extremely popular in the 1980s (as Nissan exported vehicles to the States using the Datsun name, a mistake they regretted later which cost them $800 million ~ Rs. 5000 crores in the 1980s). The resurrection of the Datsun brand is Nissan’s way of targeting the mass market and on the onset, the idea seems bright.

Toyota Camry Review & Transmission

Auto
OVERVIEW The Toyota Camry is a very popular sedan in a lot of global markets. The vehicle is known for its bullet-proof reliability, space and comfort. In a lot of countries, the car is used as a taxi and cabbies swear by the vehicle. However, Toyota just couldn’t hit the right chord with buyers in this segment in India. The previous generation Camry sold in few numbers to private customers compared to the Skoda Superb while largely hotels bought the car. The seventh generation Camry came to our country in 2012 and it didn’t sell in big numbers in India thanks to the fact that it was expensive and came with a short equipment list.

Toyota Fortuner Review & First Drive

Auto
OVERVIEW ; he original Toyota Fortuner was an enormous, powerful machine that made all manner of cars humbly move out of its way. The automotive equivalent of the mighty elephant, other cars gave it a respectfully wide berth and no one messed around. Now though, the handsome brute has had a makeover that has taken it from rough and wild to suave and polished. Think of it as Sylvester Stallone finishing up a gruelling day of killing commies on the sets of Rambo and then cleaning up to attend the Oscars. Sure, he looks all smart and sophisticated, but you know damn well that lurking under that sleek tuxedo is a mass of pure muscle that will crush you up like a paper ball without breaking a sweat. Check for review…
