The top-end, Ameo ‘Highline’ (diesel) costs INR 9.9 Lakh, on road, Delhi, which is a mammoth 3.4 Lakh Rs. cheaper, than the Vento 'Highline', costing INR 13.3 Lakh. In spite of the enormous price difference, the Ameo has each and every feature present in the Vento.

One of the best design icon from Audi, the A5 Coupe has undergone a massive makeover with the advent of its second-generation model nine years after its inception. The new car has got a modern and honed look, weighs less and more efficient with sophisticated aerodynamics and fine-tuned engines, and is loaded with leading infotainment and driver assistance technologies. The company has also unveiled the A5's brute avatar - S5 Coupe - that is both eye-catchy in appearance and a maniac in road performance. Both the cars will go on sale in Europe by the end of 2016.

We all know that the all-new Mercedes GLC is based on the C-Class platform, but to consider it as a mere jacked-up car would be an unfair account of the design and engineering effort by the company in making this car. The GLC is a replacement to the GLK-Class, the renaming is the result of Mercedes's new nomenclature scheme. With the launch of GLC, Mercedes has filled the phenomenal void in its SUV range, between the compact GLA and the mid-size GLE. Moreover, its time for the company to steal some sales from its arch rivals - Audi and BMW, as the GLC is likely to render a far-more tougher competition to the Audi Q5 and BMW X3. For sometime now, the company will sell the GLC as limited-run CBU model called as 'Edition 1' featuring almost every optional features along with the standard ones as well, until local assembly of the model commences in India.
Mahindra eVerito launched

Mahindra has finally launched the pure-electric version of its Verito sedan called as "eVerito", years after its revelation back at the Auto Expo in 2012. The car will go on sale in major cities like New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune, Kolkata, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Jaipur, and Nagpur with immediate effect, with prices starting from INR 9.50 lakhs onwards for the D2 base variant (ex showroom Delhi), after state subsidy and FAME India (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles) incentive. It is available in three trim levels: D2, D4 and D6
JBM Group, a noted auto components supplier, has ventured into the burgeoning urban bus industry with its 'CITYLIFE' range of low-floor CNG and diesel powered buses. Unveiled at the 2012 Auto Expo for the first time, the company later stepped up its assembling capabilities at its new manufacturing plant at Kosi, Uttar Pradesh to an installed capacity of 2000 units per year. The Citylife range now consists of three variants - 2327C, 2431D, and 2837 D - all 12-metre air-conditioned models, powered by two different engines sourced from Cummins. The diesel variants were launched at the 2016 Auto Expo early this year.

The Citylife is born out of a host of global auto companies along with local inputs and assembly. It is actually based on the tried and tested Avancity buses from Italian manufacturer BMB. While the body components and engine are locally sourced, the steering System and axle units are imported from Germany. The designing aspects has been taken care by JBM-TESCO alliance.
Trucks that cart over-sized cargo are the real "King of the Road". More than brute power and torque to haul the impossible, they need to be really strong and technologically well-armed to perform their duty. Scania is offering a wide range of heavy-duty haulers in our market, including the brand's flagship variant in India - the R 580 V8 (6x4), which has been categorised under a new ARAI category of 'Pullers'. Other than creating a new class of its own, thereby expanding the CV market, the R 580 boasts a mighty GCW (Gross Combination Weight) figure of 200 tonnes when coupled with a suitable multi-axle drawbar trailer. With a impressive 580 hp (426 kW) and 2, 700 Nm of power and torque out of a V8 engine, this Scania is the most powerful truck we have ever had in India before.
Our country's "first people's car", the car we all love for its simplicity and mass acceptance - Maruti 800 - has been dead and gone for quite a spell in the Indian market, but it has been found living somewhere under a different name with little disguise, probably not even knowing her true parentage! Sold in China as Jiangnan TT, this cutie pie is the cheapest car available in their market, as it was the case in India for at least three decades. Jiangnan mainly targets lower-income countryside buyers in smaller cities, to whom status out of car doesn't really matter. But dwindling demand for this simple and iconic models suggests that the car may not last long forever in the market. 
Back in 2014, Audi launched the third-gen A3 sedan, the first compact luxury sedan to hit the Indian market. The car has received a mid-term facelift, with the company offering fresh looks, new engine options, added safety features, and the elegant Matrix LED headlamps and admirable Virtual Cockpit all-digital instrument cluster for the first time in the compact segment. With its only rival in India - Mercedes-Benz CLA - that has also got a mid-term makeover quite recently, the refreshed A3 is now pepped-up and more equipped to face the competition.
