Here is all you have to know about the biggest scandal the Volkswagen group has tangled itself in its 78-years glorious history. "#dieselgate"
2015 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show. The hatchback, like none before, is a blend of humble design, compact body, spacious interior, and efficient engine package. The India-made Baleno is one among the key models that the Japanese automaker is working on to pep up its global image. In India too, Maruti Suzuki has confirmed the launch of this new trendy hatch (codenamed YRA for India) this year, likely in the festive season of Diwali next month.

I'm a great fan of car electrification. What one can realise in recent times is that every auto giants are going to bring up something big on electrification in the immediate future. BMW's i range is catching up to speed, and Tesla is undeniably on fire, setting stage for a real EV revolution in the luxury segment, while Audi has been waffling a little in the electric arena with its hyped R8 e-tron. And here come the game changer!!

About DHIYANESH RAVICHANDRAN
Dhiyanesh is the prime mover of this weblog and is equally crazy about driving cars and writing about them. This guy loves everything with a steering wheel, and bikes doesn't fascinate him much. So, at someday if self-driving cars take up all driving, he is sure to go nuts! He is instinctively seduced to sedans of 90s era, and his dream garage will surely have a W140 S-Class and R34 Skyline GT. He snogs his 1999 Fiat Siena everyday lovingly, and drives a Ford Fiesta. He maintains a strong appetite for sociological perspectives on cars, their historical and cultural footprints. And finds it strange to have written this in third person!
