Mahindra TUV300 Facelift Review & Performance

Mahindra TUV300 Facelift Review & Performance

Mahindra TUV300 Overview Mahindra TUV300 was the company’s first new-gen compact SUV. This made its entry after the company experimented with the Quanto. That vehicle didn’t do well due to multiple reasons and Mahindra did have a lot of learnings from that. The Mahindra TUV300 did have the tough and bold looks, it did appeal to many, but there were an array of launches that affected the sales. One of the major reasons was lack of power from the engine….

Audi Q3 Engine & Transmission

Audi Q3 Engine & Transmission

OVERVIEW ; Audi has cleaved open another gap in its mega portfolio to create the slightly predictable Q3. It’s a posh crossover that’s bigger and taller than the A3 but – despite appearances – not quite as full-figured as the Q5. So it’s a smallish hatchback jacked-up to look like an SUV, while still looking like a hatchback. Sort of. You know what it is: think Audi Q3 vs BMW X1. It’s designed mostly for tarmac, but the raised ride…

Tata Tigor Features & Test Drive

Tata Tigor Features & Test Drive

OVERVIEW ; After numerous sightings, great expectations and a long wait, the Tata Tigor is finally out of the bag. For those of you who just tuned in, the Tigor serves as a sedan version of the Tiago, and will sit below the Tata Zest. This is a compact ‘under four meter’ sedan for those buyers who need the convenience and practicality from such a vehicle but with an unmistakeable dash of style. It is for this same reason that…

Jaguar XE Price & Specifications

Jaguar XE Price & Specifications

OVERVIEW ; It’s a compact sports saloon, pretty much the heartland car for anyone who has a decent regular job, a couple of kids and a smattering of Coldplay and Adele albums. Only this particular example is wearing a Jaguar badge, which makes the XE officially a big deal. Not least for Jaguar, whose last stab, the X-Type, was a faux-premium reheated Ford Mondeo. Jaguar could do with this one being a big fat hit, and consequently has thrown everything…

Renault Kwid Price & Transmission

Renault Kwid Price & Transmission

OVERVIEW ; The 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…

BMW 7 Series Facelift Performance

BMW 7 Series Facelift Performance

OVERVIEW ; The world that we know of today is filled with people who have dreams. Most just dream while some work towards converting dreams into reality. While the former category succumbs to the societal pressure and ends up in the usual rat race, the latter create their own path. A path of success. A path which leads them to a position above the rest. And when you are above the rest, you would definitely want to make a statement….

Toyota Etios Safety & Test Drive

Toyota Etios Safety & Test Drive

OVERVIEW ; The Etios is pretty nimble for its size and easy to punt around town, thanks to a tight turning circle and super-light electric steering. However, the steering which is totally devoid of feel doesn’t give much feedback. With plenty of turns lock to lock, it’s quite slow and there’s a dead zone around the straight-ahead position which makes you feel disconnected from the road. With a weighty diesel engine up front, the steering has become a bit heavier…

Tata Zest Engine & Gearbox

Tata Zest Engine & Gearbox

OVERVIEW ; The past few years haven’t been good to Tata Motors’ passenger car division. It has had a few good products, but there always was something that didn’t sit right. Of course, there were even more things that were brilliant about the products, but desirability, one of the most important things in an economy such as ours where a car still remains in large part a luxury rather than a necessity, was absent. Tata has now recognised this, and…

Tata Tiago Facelft Review & Test Drive

Tata Tiago Facelft Review & Test Drive

OVERVIEW ; Tata Motors tasted success in the private car segment with the Indica when it was launched in 1998. The vehicle continues to be sold today but there was no replacement for it in spite of the Vista and later the Bolt coming along. This is solely because the Indica is largely sold to the commercial segment like fleet operators and thus isn’t appealing to private car buyers anymore. To fill this void, the company has developed an all…
