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
