OVERVIEW Goodbye, high-rise oddity, hello lower, wider and more conventional five-door hatch alternative to Audi A3 and BMW 1-Series rivals. Mercedes has at last turned the A-Class into a real contender. Third time lucky, you could say.It’s a good looking design, with a lot going on: rising swage lines, bonnet creases, LED clusters… you certainly couldn’t call it anonymous. It’s especially head-turning with optional big wheels, black glossy bits, pointy ‘Sport’ grille and huge sunroof. It’s just been facelifted, note, but it’s all pretty subtle stuff.

OVERVIEW ; It was back in 2015 that Maruti Suzuki first introduced their premium crossover S-Cross for the Indian market. It was the first car to be sold through the Nexa dealerships. Due to the onslaught of SUVs in the Indian market, the S-Cross didn’t really make a mark in sales numbers. It was a big deal then, and still is for being a premium offering from the carmaker. Today in 2017, the crossover employs the brand’s Smart Hybrid technology and has gone through a cosmetic makeover. It boasts of a host of styling updates and features, thus adding to its premium quotient. Maruti Suzuki is now hoping to grab a decent chunk of sales in this segment. But does[…]

  OVERVIEW Porsche has launched the 2016 range of its legendary 911s and with prices starting from Rs. 1.39 crores (ex-showroom, Maharashtra) and Rs. 1.42 crores (ex-showroom, Delhi), you could almost call it a bargain, for what you get is something of a rare breed on this planet, a German with a sense of humour. The 911 family tree has remained majorly unchanged over the years, with the flat-six engine stubbornly remaining at the back. Nobody thought it would ever work, but fast forward to 2016, and these are one of the most sought after driver’s cars, known for their one-of-a-kind feel. Check for Review & price of Porsche Models In a welcome move, Porsche has launched the 2016 line up[…]

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. While most people might now know this but extensive Nissan bits will go into[…]
