Mini Cooper S with JCW Tuning Kit 2017 – Review

I like hot performance-oriented hatchbacks better than most sports cars, at least in the Indian context. In general, they are compact, light, relatively more practical, less expensive, and easy on the credit card at a petrol station. However, the point

VW Tiguan – First Drive Review

VW India finally makes a return to the SUV space with a product we’ve been wanting since 2007. It’s taken around 10 years for Volkswagen to bring the Tiguan to India, but it’s finally here in its second gen avatar. While the Tiguan in

2017 Skoda Octavia – First Drive Review

The third generation Skoda Octavia was launched in October 2013 to much praise from the automotive community around the world. In India, it was the return of a nameplate that virtually established the Skoda brand in the early 2000’s when the first-generation

2017 Maruti Dzire featured image First Drive Review

2017 Maruti Dzire – First Drive Review

Is more mature and ‘Dzirable’ than ever before.  The sub-4m compact sedan segment may not have products with the most desirable designs, but the extra practicality over its hatchback counterparts and, of course, the inherent want to own

2017 Mercedes CLA (facelift) – Review

Changes are so minor that it is perfect for a game of ‘spot 5 differences’. “You got the CLA again? Has it been facelifted? What is exactly different about it?”. These were the questions bombarding me when I showed the new Mercedes

Jaguar F-Pace R-Sport – Review

Never felt so tall in a Jaguar before. Since my childhood, I have been close to the Jaguar brand thanks to my father’s profession, and throughout the years they were (and still are) desirable because of the brand’s illustrious history, typical

Renault Lodgy Stepway front three quarter First Drive Review

Renault Lodgy Stepway – First Drive Review

Same body, but donning a rugged jacket and slicker shoes. Renault India’s products do not seem to coerce car buyers to flock into showrooms as much as the Kwid. While the Duster did enjoy success and set the template for car-like rugged compact

Audi R8 V10 Plus – Review

But outputs 610 PS from the Lamborghini Huracan’s 5.2L V10 engine. Whenever I have a supercar for review, I feel like an Indian celebrity. From fellow motorists fumbling with their smartphones to take a picture to children giving me the thumbs

Jaguar XF 2.0 Diesel – Review

Has the look of a sharp businessman, but the spirit of an athlete. The XF is quite simply one of Jaguar’s most important models in their brand history. It is the sedan that helped usher a new era for Jaguar and put them back on the map once again.
