Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

The Ashok Leyland Stile was unveiled yesterday by none other than Mr. Carlos Ghosn, CEO Renault-Nissan Alliance and Mr. G P Hinduja, Co-Chairman, Hinduja Group. One look at the Stile and we know what to expect in the updated Nissan Evalia which should be launching soon, sometime by the festive season maybe.

‘Butterfly’ type windows on the Evalia does not go down well with us Indians.

1. Sliding windows on the rear doors: This is perhaps the Evalia’s biggest issue, especially in a country like India. The rear windows on the Evalia are of the ‘butterfly’ opening type. This would be addressed in the updated Evalia, however the Stile seems to have gotten the update already.

Stile sports sliding windows which should find its way onto the Evalia.

2. Captain’s Chairs on the second row: The Stile will be available in 7 and 8 seater configurations. If you take a look at the segment leader, the Toyota Innova, a significant portion of its owners like to relax in their individual captain’s seats, which we must tell you are very comfortable. Nissan would like to offer the option of these bucket seats, at least on the top-end variants of the updated Evalia.

Evalia comes with a bench seat for the second row. Also note the lack of aircon vents/blowers.
