Ashwin Ram

Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.

Nissan Juke rival is based on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA).

The Toyota C-HR has been unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. It will be offered in the UK with a choice of two powertrains. It is the second model to be underpinned by the TNGA platform after the 2016 Toyota Prius. Toyota says that the C-HR represents “Akio Toyoda’s determination to allow greater stylistic freedom and promote engineering creativity in order to achieve eye-catching designs and enhanced driving pleasure.”
