DHIYANESH RAVICHANDRAN | Thursday, April 28, 2016 Be the first to comment!
Tiny cars are the new-age soothsayers for carmakers. After the Indian-market aimed Datsun redi-GO, it's time to talk about an another small car primarily aimed at the Brazilian market - the all-new Fiat Mobi super-mini hatchback. With a rather unconventional design and petite proportions, the Mobi is an yet-another urban car with jacked-up ground clearance and aggressive crossover-like orientation that are clearly gaining huge momentum in the global automotive dais. The Mobi will take on the upcoming VW Up! and Renault Kwid in the Brazilian sub-compact hatch market.

Tesla Motors has recently revealed the face-lifted Model S with few styling and interior tweaks. Since its inception in 2011, Model S has grabbed the entire motoring world's attention not just for its pure-electric and high-tech pedigree, but also equally for its design.

Scania Citywide LE 12m Indian-spec
At the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo last February, Scania CV India displayed its flagship city or sub-urban bus 'Citywide' for the first time in India. This low-entry bus range has been quite successful in global markets since its inception in 2011, thanks to the brand's reliable construction, engineering, and fuel-efficient technologies. The company is expanding its local assembly in India, and will consecutively include the Citywide range as well in the days to come. The Citywide's high point is its hybridized engine that can also run on renewable fuels like bio-ethanol, bio-diesel and bio-methane along with the conventional diesel, a first-of-its kind in India. Moreover, the Citywide will compete the popular and only-premium urban bus in the Indian market - Volvo 8400 Low-Floor

Powerpulse turbo
Volvo Cars is surging ahead in engine technologies in the downsized 2-liter, four-cylinder category for its premium cars. While the company is already using turbocharged and supercharged T6 and T8 Twin Engine (plug-in-hybrid) petrol motors, the latest diesel-based PowerPulse Technology claims to literally eliminate the turbo lag once and for all! The PowerPulse system uses a reservoir of compressed-air to help create instant spool-up in the turbo charger. The technology will debut on the upcoming all-new S90 sedan and XC90 SUV.

DHIYANESH RAVICHANDRAN | Thursday, April 14, 2016 Be the first to comment!
Nissan-owned Datsun has revealed the production-ready redi-GO 'urban cross' hatchback for the first time to the global folks today. We expected its premiere at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo itself that took place last February. The funky hatch will go on sale by the month of June this year, with pre-bookings starting from next month according to the company. This car is the third offering from Datsun in the Indian market, and fifth car from the brand globally. Although the redi-GO doesn't really qualify to be an 'urban cross', it is more fab-looking and upmarket than many of its rival hatchbacks.

full comprehensive review
Home-grown Tata Motors has just begun the sales of its all-new cool hatchback Tiago, with an entry-level prices of INR 3.20 Lakhs (petrol) and INR 3.94 lakhs (Diesel), ex-showroom Delhi. Heralded by the company and industry observers as 'transformative', both in terms of its product excellence and sales potential, the Tiago is potent enough to turnaround the brand's dwindling fortunes. Unlike previous attempts, the Tiago is essentially all-new and shares little with any Tata to date. It is attractive, spacious, well equipped, and fuel-efficient, seemingly well-qualified to compete in the premium hatch segment. Therefore, an outright game changer for the brand.

Overall, the all-new Vitara Brezza is a mind blowing 1.2 Lakh bucks lower in terms of Total Cost of Ownership and thus far better value for money and a more practical choice than the Ford EcoSport. Plus, it has numerous and highly attractive features over the EcoSport as well.

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!
