Nissan Micra Review – India

Auto
Value. It is what the Indian consumer is looking for. Whether it is the world’s cheapest car or the best car in the world, we want the most bang for our buck, and this is most apparent in our market’s fast-growing hatchback segment. There are two ways to approach the concept of ‘value’ – one, to offer a low price. Sure, there will be compromises on quality, but you essentially get more car for your money. The other is to provide extra features at the same price as the competition. Nissan had tried the former with the original India-spec Micra, but with the imminent launch of budget sub-brand Datsun, they’re taking the Micra brand to the place it usually occupies in the markets it is present in: the premium end of the…

Volvo S60 Cross Country India review, test drive

Auto
Volvo S60 Cross Price in India   The S60 Cross Country is the stand-out version of the already available S60 sedan with an increased ground clearance, raised suspension and handling tweaks to differentiate it from the regular luxury model. At the first glance, the S60 Cross Country looks like a S60 with lift kit and 19″ alloy wheels but it’s something more than just a four-door, five-seater luxury sedan as it offers two main traits: First, You can take it out on weekends and explore low-level terrain and second is it adapts a unique combination of an SUV and a sedan.   EXTERIOR AND STYLE   It’ll be completely honest here, at first glance, the S60 CC can be quite deceptive. I mean it looks almost exactly like the S60…

Jaguar F-TYPE Reviews, Ratings & Reliability

Auto
Jaguar F-TYPE Price in India   Jaguar has been making sports car even before the company was called Jaguar. Circa 1960, Jaguar launched a vehicle which went and became a design icon, winning several awards for being the world’s most beautiful car, time and again. The design of the Jaguar E-Type is timeless, it looks marvellous even today. Enzo Ferrari had called the E-Type the most beautiful car ever made and we can’t help but agree with him. So it definitely wasn’t easy for Jaguar to design the E-Type’s successor, the F-Type. Launched 39 years after the production of the E-Type stopped, the current F-Type is not Jaguar’s first attempt.   In 1980, Jaguar started work on the F-Type (codenamed XJ41) which was underpinned by the XJ40 sedan. It was…

First Drive: BMW 5-series – Review

Auto
BMW 5-series Price in India   With a new platform and new engines, the 2017 BMW 5 Series looks to reaffirm its standing in the midsize luxury sedan segment. It distinguished itself decades ago as a driver's car and has since evolved into a sophisticated, comfortable sedan that attempts to be all things to most people. In the process, the 5 Series traded some of its driver's car chops for a more isolated feel. The 2017 model doesn't stray far from this contemporary vision of the 5 Series. And despite being a hair larger and bringing an arsenal of technology to bear, the new car manages to avoid the weight bloat that afflicts many such attempts.   BMW didn't take any chances with its successful product. The new 5 Series…

Mahindra NuvoSport first drive review

Auto
Mahindra NuvoSport Price in India   Mahindra intends going the Maruti way with its affordable range of SUVs. How else would you explain the company bringing back its first sub-4 metre SUV, albeit in a new form to the market, which already has the well-selling TUV300? Say hello to the NuvoSport, a better looking and newer iteration of the erstwhile Quanto. Mahindra says the NuvoSport is based on a newer, lighter ladder frame platform compared to the Quanto. And it is. Underpinning the NuvoSport is the same ladder platform that made its debut in the new Scorpio and then made its way under the TUV300.

Renault Kwid User Reviews and Ratings – Renault Cars

Auto
  The Renault Kwid’s underlying proposition is its sports utility styling. Driven by the fact that this is the body style that is currently the rage across markets, and not the least because Renault's success in India is underlined largely by the Duster's popularity, the Kwid makes a statement even when standing still. The entry hatchback segment is lacking in variety and the tall-boy design is by now passe. So, is it just SUV styling or does the Kwid’s design also serve a purpose? Well, if the 180mm ground clearance and the extra headroom at the front can be considered more practical than what is offered by the others in the segment, then the Kwid's design would have already served a purpose   EXTERIORS  The Renault Kwid 2017 looks very…
