The Santro had won the hearts of many! It was also the Debut of Shah rukh Khan in the Motown! An  Association which still stands the test of time ! Hyundai India And SRK!

The Complete family car , with Tall Boy Design added things  like Power Steering, fuel Injection to Common household lexicon of the Indian Middle Class. 

A Product which paved the way for  Hyundai as the second largest Car maker in the country.  

So Is this the New Santro ? Would it be a hit like its predecessor ? Can the New Santro codenamed AH2 catapult Hyundai to No 1 Slot in India ? Ahead of Maruti ? Or is it a long way to go for HMIL as of now in terms of Network and Cost of Ownership of vehicle.

Audi CEO Rupert Stadler arrested in diesel emission case

18 Jun 2018 2 Comments Author: Motor Uncle

 

German authorities have taken Audi CEO Rupert Stadler into custody, making him the highest-profile arrest in the group’s diesel-cheating probes

Volkswagen AG diesel emissions cheating fiasco had the company in news for all the wrong reasons. It lead to dramatic exit for the VW chairman Winterkorn. 

Despite the company paying more than a USD 1 Billion in damages and compensations, here comes the  biggest move by the authorities. 

The Arrest of the Audi CEO Ruper Stadler. It surely sends out a powerful message, an exemplary reprimand of sorts , that wilful cheating and playing with environment and Health is unpardonable! 

Time to see how the Audi and VW companies, their dealers and consumers respond. Lets see how future unfolds and history gets made. It is surely an opporunity of a "La Harvard case Study" for VW and Audi to turn around the things for the better. Time to hit the mattresses and fight for  Win -Win ! 

dr neelu chhabra Rule of law should prevail...this is impacts entire society ...they should be dealt with strictly.. this step plays testimony..
Monica Ray These Fish are way too Big! They pay their way out through compensations and damages ! The control govts! They can get away despite that the air pollution is a Big KIller and they cheated on people through their device ... Painful ..

Will you buy an EV for 50 Lakhs ?

18 Jun 2018 2 Comments Author: Anuj Guglani

 

 

The World's highest selling and most fav EV the Nissan Leaf shall be launched in India soon! 

The EV segment in India is the most watched out space by the World' s leading EV makers like the Tesla and also the conventional car makers for their EV range 

But the Nissan Leaf at Half a crore ? Would you buy it ? How many takers for this one ?

Would you go for the Audi A6 or the Nissan Leaf if you have 50 Lakhs to spend ?

 

 

dr neelu chhabra Ev is the future but cant afford to produce power from fossil fuels as what the global trend is... Shall be catastrophic.. energy need to be from Green energy.. what Jan Oorja guys are doing ... Bio CNG from waste ..killing two birds with one stone ..
Monica Ray Yes ! But it has to be a Tesla Model S !!

The Hype, Hoopla & Hysteria behind "All New Creta"

14 May 2018 2 Comments Author: Motor Uncle

 

Yes Creta has been the segment leader. 

One of the fastest and hottest selling Compact SUV's in the Country.  It has offered pride of ownership to several customers across the country, so much so that it even canabilised elder sister Santa Fe.  

Even on MotorUncle.com, it has enjoyed one of the highest aggregated rating from Expert and Actual Users.  https://motoruncle.com/cars/review/Hyundai-Creta

The Hype & Hoopla of Facelift Model 

Old Creta

New Facelift Front 

Old Creta Rear 

 

New Creta Rear 

The Great Hysteria and Hype Car Co's make do Minor facelifts, calling it & branding it "All New Car" 

It cant get funnier than that. These are brilliant strategies to add steroids to the fatigued product and sagging sale. Yes, it could be an exception for the Creta, as it has done consistent no's in the market despite great competition from Tata Nexon and Jeep Compass from either ends of the Price Ladder.

As far as the "All New Car" trick is concerned, All Car Companies do it! The only difference being the extent of changes. However, if you try to see in the case of Facelifted Creta, its almost like a "Spot the Difference" Quiz :) 

Additionally, according to Industry sources, which could be unreliable, even the Engine specs remain more or less the same. There could be new transmissions though

Do we still call it the "All The Creta" 

There are pics floating on the internet which show spy shots of "Facelifted Creta" taken at a Dealer Stock yard, as the company prepares for the launch. Yes the Team Bhp Pics, which have been used by all Leading Car Sites and Magazines, of course after giving due credit. 

 Let's see how the hype, hysteria of the Facelift Model, unfold for this great product which has truly proven its mettle in the market. 

We wish Hyundai Motor India all the very best for the launch, last week of this month

 Cheers! Team MotorUncle.com 

MotorUncle555@gmail.com

 

dr neelu chhabra Frankly very difficult to distinguish from the earlier gen Creta .. almost like spot the difference game ... And I flunked it ..
Anuj Guglani This SUV is so Good! it killed the Santa Fe! :)

Who would buy Cullinan, the Rolls Royce SUV ?

10 May 2018 3 Comments Author: Motor Uncle

 

Rolls Royce today unveiled their upcoming SUV  - The Cullinan

It might be the best SUV performance wise, but frankly its a bit tough to  digest a SUV which looks like a Rolls Royce. Its like a Grand old Lady in a Mini Skirt ! Or a KungFu Attire 

Come on take a look! Doesnt it seem , the bottom has been suddenly sliced ! It shall take a while to digest the rear styling. 

We feel the Rolls belongs to the Sedan and Rolls is the Car of the tycoons and the Kings and the Maharajas!

An SUV styling somewhere dilutes it all .... WHAT SAY ?

 

 

dr neelu chhabra Great interiors ..
Anuj Guglani Market is unforgiving and fair at the same time ... Let the customer decide ... they arent many of them around anyways ... Yes ! It 's a bit to accept ... quite frankly ...
Monica Ray It looks weird! confusing .... they have made us so used to the grand Sedan ... Accepting this looks a challenge! Well I m neither an authority on this nor a customer .... ;)

India needs to grow its auto eco system responsibly with Safety as a Prime Enabler!

19 Apr 2018 2 Comments Author: CITIZENS FOR BETTER INDIA

 

We need more and more cars for the masses which are safe, sturdy and have low cost of Ownership ...all cars right from entry level should have basic safety features like Air bags , ABS, reversing Sensors, good Strong built ...

We are already the 4th Largest auto market in the world ... we need to grow more responsibly ... 

Policy Makers, Auto co's, dealers, suppliers, Citizens all need to work on it together

The Consumers need to demand Best Cars without any compromise 

We need to reduce the Road Fatalities. We need safety in vehicles, safety on roads. Safety needs to be a way of life! Losing 1.5 L people in road Accidents every year. That amounts to :

  1. One Death Every 4 minutes, 
  2. 20 children under the age of 14 die every day due to road crashes in in the country.
  3. 377 people die every day, equivalent to a jumbo jet crashing every day.

This needs to Stop! Lets harness tech for this! 

Car Meets Cloud

Connected Vehicles tech should be harnessed. Majority reasons of Accidents like Over loading, Over speeding, Drunken Driving, dangerous Driving, Lack of Servicing of Vehicles, Spurious spares can trigger alerts, from the Car Computer and notifications, sms can be sent to the Driver/ owner, their kin, govt Call center, Insurance companies, Car Service center for corrective action. 

Insurance premium, traffic Challans can all be controlled. Even Excessive emissions can be controlled the same way. 

We invite responsible members of the Auto Industry to come together and run trials with govt Agencies, Tech Co's. Pass Laws around it. If Ola, Uber can do it, why cant the people of India, govt  ,Auto Industry and spirited Citizens ?

Lets turn around our biggest weakness into our biggest Strengh! Yes we can do it!

Jai Hind 

dr neelu chhabra Let's action this ... Need of the hour ..
Anuj Guglani Idea is good ... need more elaboration with the stake holders ... can be surely initiated ...best Wishes

So why did the Renault Captur Bomb despite being a great product ?

17 Apr 2018 4 Comments Author: Monica Ray

 

 

Was it overconfidence of Renault ?  They had just delivered a uber successful Product like the Kwid.  No Normal Success it was... Something what Harvard Biz School Case Studies are made of ...

It seems the reasons of Success of Kwid got turned around to work against the Captur. 

What worked for Kwid :

1. Great SUV LIke Styling in a Entry LEvel hatchback

2. Unbelievable starting price lower than Maruti Suzuki vehicles 

3. Good Localisation 

4. Superlative Marketing Blitzkrieg

What didnt work for Captur : 

1. Great Styling but looks like a swollen up Kwid. So lost out on the differntiator bit 

2. Now despite striking resemblance with Kwid, it has a price tag, even higher than Duster

3. Indian Customer no fool, they research online and get to know Captur is on same platform as Duster. 

SO why would the Customer pay more than the Duster, for a car made on the same platform and which actually looks like the Entry Level Hatch ie the Kwid ... ! 

I know Captur has some class leading features and gadgets. I know Captur is the NExt Gen Vehicle ... but mere doston jo dikhta hai .... wo Bikhta hai ! 

See for yourself, Kwid and Captur look like Sisters.  The same reason why Audi A8 does miniscule numbers. The Siblings curse I guess... One Has to be Salman and the other Sohail. 

 A Premium customer paying a higher price wants a clear differentiator

Source : MU Ratings

 Captur :  https://motoruncle.com/cars/review/Renault-Captur

Kwid  : https://motoruncle.com/cars/review/Renault-Kwid

  

dr neelu chhabra Looks like overgrown Kwid ... They should have launched Kwid after capture ... Wud have worked win win
Gaurav Bhateja Quality of interior is far better in Creta ... even compact SUVs like wrv , nexon are far ahead as far as interior goes ... Renault has not done due diligence in getting that luxury feeling/ wow factor which is expected from Car of this class
Motor Uncle Well Nothing succeeds like Success and if something bombs the same hands which once applauded, now point fingers ...you either succeed or learn .... Most imp thing here is that a car company keeps taking the learnings in real time and keeps moving forward! Even Abhishek Bachchan and Bobby Deol are planning come backs, so its ok! : ) Cheers from Motor Uncle

Does it ever make sense to buy a new car?

31 Mar 2018 4 Comments Author: Rayancaleb Rayancaleb

 

hi,

 

I’m approaching the end of my Camry lease in July. After making some moronic decisions with my past 2 car purchases I want to make the best possible decision this time. I recognize that a car is not an investment as it just depreciates but I want to be conscious of the total cost of ownership as well as safety features with this purchase. I’ve saved up 17k ontop of my emergency fund which I can either use to buy out my 2015 Camry lease residual, buy a different used vehicle, or put a large down payment on a new car, preferably a 2018 CamryIf I buyout my lease I’ve eliminated car payments and have a low mileage 2015 Camry with a residual that should be just under market value. The issues are I didn’t exactly baby the car in the past 3 years as I wasn’t anticipating buying it out. Also, the car is lacking many of the safety features I wanted to upgrade to as I anticipate my wife and I having kids in the next couple years.In my head, perhaps because my father told me “never buy new” I feel like a sucker buying new as I would be the one taking the depreciation hit and would be committing to more monthly payments. On the upside I make over 200k and could easily pay it off quickly, I’d be getting every safety/convenience feature I want, and would get the benefit of the new warranty.Lastly, I’ve ruled out buying a heavily used car as I had my fair share of those in my life and am not mechanically inclined enough to identify a good/bad deal or handle repairs myselfIf you were in my position what would you do? Does it ever make sense to buy new over used with a car like a Camry?

Please help.

I did not find the right solution from the internet.

New Car Co's on the Block, Who will rule ? Kia , MG or Peugeot ?

23 Mar 2018 2 Comments Author: Motor Uncle

 

Indian Motown Story was never this exciting! 3 New Car Companies getting ready to launch! Kia Motors which created sensation at the Auto Expo Last month and then MG Motors which is a famous UK Car Brand, makers of the Once Popular Morris Minor but now owned by the chinese Auto behemoth SAIC and of course the Peugoet part of the French Giant Groupe PSA 

Each of these companies have their own strengths as well as drawbacks. A Shared Drawback aka shared Mobility is that they are coming in late.  Maruti , Hyundai, Mahindra, Honda and Toyota have already had a ball.  Maruti and Hyundai enjoy more than 70% market share 

Lets take them one by one ...

Peugeot 

They have already made multiple U -Turns in the past. Lets Hope this time they are here to Stay.  Though they have some great exciting products. Motor Uncle had blogged on  Peugeot https://motoruncle.com/blog/peugeot-india-no-u-turns-please/

MG Motors 

They have adquired the General Motors Old Plant at Halol. It was aged even when GM acquired it from Hindustan Motors, more than two decades back.  Moreover It shall take tonnes of Mktg Ammo for MG Motors to paint the picture thats hey! its an iconic  British Brand. Meanwhile the rivals shall be busy googling MG Motors, opening Wikipedia on their deivces and educating the customers of its Chinese Owners ie SAIC. This is very similar to what GM India faced with Optra and other vehicles of GM Daewoo antecedants. In the last decade, Korean Car Companies had faced lot of flak and a run down on image due to Daewoo Bankruptcy.  But that was last decade.....Success of Hyundai has been a great image makeover for Korean Co's and yes Kia gets to leverage this.

And for management at MG Motors life is a full circle. This is because most are from the Initial Years of GM India when they faced similar issue due to Daewoo and now they shall face from the Chinese Owners SAIC. People also say it was the dated SAIC products launched by GM India last few years which proved as latter's death warrant! Anyways lets bury the past as we are here to discuss a promising future! 

Kia Motors 

Kia has a lot going its way. A Big Brother like Hyundai by the side, whom it can always turn for advise, support, leverage.  Then its a Korean company and thanks to its parent, Korean Brands acceptance have seen a sea change for the better last one decade. Then its an easy to pronounce name, almost like a Hindi word "Kia" . This can mean higher recall and engagement with masses. It all begins with a easy to pronounce and remember name. Ask Mktg & Sales guys at Renault India and Chevrolet India and they share their Market challenges of a difficult name to pronounce! 

By the way Chevrolet in French means Goat's Milk! So Big Advantage to Kia on the name part and the lineage. Additonally their product line up oozzes excitment and assuming the power trains are shared with Hyundai, this means trust and proven quality even if not supremacy

And they have already invested in a plant with a capacity of 3,00,000 units an year  based on the confidence of gaining traction and marketshare. 

So the lines have been drawn ! Time to rev up the engines or charge up the Batteries! Its  Race Time ! May the best Companies win! 

Anuj Guglani It shall be surely very exciting to see who gets sustained success, as we have the best men and women of the motown behind each of these brands and companies... Eventually it shall be the win of the eco system, leadership and culture
Monica Ray Great Candid Piece! Way to go Motor Uncle ! Thats why we all love you so much !!

What is the best month to buy a new car so as to get great deals ?

05 Mar 2018 3 Comments Author: Gaurav Bhateja

 

Anuj Guglani The discounts are long forgotten and the Car Quality & Experiences cherished for a longer time ... Cars which dont move at the Dealer or Car co end have higher discounts ... they are not moving for a reason ... think about it !
Anuj Guglani The Year end discounts can be an Eye wash ... As one the car ages by an year in a few days ... in a small car ... Year end doesnt work out as saving, if car sold under 3 years ...
Monica Ray Well the best month has to be march or sept for Depreciation benefits ... However these days even year end discounts are great

From the Annals of American Auto

01 Dec 2017 0 Comments Author: Shawn turner

 

Hello,

Recent history of American auto reveals that two auto companies, namely Suzuki and Hyundai, entered the JUMBO American Auto market around 1985. Suzuki-America has yet to make profit from American operation in 25 years and probably in 2010 they lost to the tune of 100 Million $ in USA due to extra expenditure associated with introduction and advertisement of Kizashi. However, lucky for them, Indian Maruti Suzuki is booming without leaps and bounds – the most profitable arm of Suzuki. In 2010, Suzuki Japan increased the parent company’s royalty from 3.5% to 5.35% from Maruti, which kept global Suzuki in BLACK but Maruti-Suzuki’s net profit declined in India in spite of substantial increase in sale #. America is the sizable source of profit for Hyundai and they have a big manufacturing facility here. To get a feel see a comparison Lexus LS460L, Bentley Mulsanne, Lexes LS, Audi A6 and BMW 5 series, Lexus GS 350, Lexus RX 350.

Do headlights fade?

01 Dec 2017 1 Comments Author: Shawn turner

 

Hello,

I have read several articles and posts on the Internet that say a cars headlight bulbs fade and get dimmer over time, and that replacing them will make them brighter. My car is 13 years old, I have had it for 3 years. I never replaced the headlights since I had it, I don't know about before that. I just took my car into the local Firestone service center to have the headlights replaced. When I told them I wanted the headlights replaced even though they still worked just because I wanted them to be brighter, they looked at me like I had two heads. I ended up replacing them with brighter bulbs(at twice the price I was quoted over the phone to just replace them). Is everything I read online about headlights fading false, or was I lied to by Firestone?

 

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

Captur is on Duster Platform and priced Higher!

The Captur , India gets is not the same model available in Europe!

The Captur India shall get is based on the same MO Platform which powers the Duster. Renault wishes to charge a premium for Captur.  

SO does this really matter....!!  ??

Would Captur be able to displace the Segement Leader Hyundai Creta ?

We shall get to know soon!!  Happy Diwali!

Maruti Weaves Magic with Ciaz  ; Overtakes Honda City!

05 May 2017 4 Comments Author: Varun Gandhi

 

Whats up Maruti Suzuki ? Broken the decade long jinx, if not longer??

Lets discuss the list of Products bombed in Premium segment last decade : Baleno , Kizashi, Grand Vitara ... Yup! A long list it is! 

Now comes in NExa, New Marketing, New Branding, Fading Consumer Memory ( always helps) , forgiving customer for past debacles

and you have a brilliant new Product and Buying Experience! 

Despite Honda launching a refreshed City, the Ciaz has overtaken the former in monthly sales. Tables have surely turned

Honda as a brand has stood for prestige, premiumness, luxury and comfort and has enjoyed a superlative Aspirational value since its launch in India in 1997-98. though it was very distinct from its global image which has been of entry level workhorse. Several Mass Auto Brands come to India and become Luxurious and Premium , other examples being VW,  Skoda, 

So what worked for Ciaz ? Shift to Nexa , Consistent Product Performance, Change in Mindset and Brand Perception of Maruti Brand or a combination of all these factors ... All said and done ...a big Hats off to Maruti Suzuki India for Pulling this off ... Lets see how long the lead can be sustained... as its just the beginning!

Would the WR-V trigger a much needed Sales Avalanche for Honda

27 Mar 2017 2 Comments Author: Monica Ray

 

Honda, A Brand which has been aspirational for the Indian consumers...Back in 1998 when the Honda Siel Cars debuted with the first Honda City at India's First Honda Dealership at Chandigarh, People went from Delhi to buy the City. That was the aspiration for owning a car with the power of 100 Horses... Something new and alien for the Indian Consumers back then... Many returning to Delhi with dented bumpers and fender... Unable to handle the power of the High rev Honda engines back then!

Honda, somehow lost the plot since 2010, it seems ... The Products like CR-V, Mobilio, BR-V have just seen average or below Average Performance.  Amaze though has a great start but was unable to displace DZire from it's throne. 

Now comes the WR-V . Pricing seems to be right. Shape is surely futuristic. Performance of Honda Petrol Powertrains is surely incomparable ... Petrol is the In thing these days 

The WR-V Ratings on Motor Uncle seems just Average ... They are the Experts  rating  only as of now... as the Actual Customers are yet to build to a significant no 

WR-V Sales performance would surely be a cornerstone for Honda Cars and We wish them all the very best!

Anuj Guglani and WR-V becomes a show Stealer ... the Cash Cow for Honda ! 5 K units a month ... WR-V ya Wagon R ;)
Anuj Guglani People say it looks more like a hatch ... and less like a Compact SUV ... In India a lot depends on Car looks .. and Yes, cars like Honda City LQ have been class leading High Selling exceptions!

Tata Hexa becomes Highest Rated Car in its class at MotorUncle.com

10 Mar 2017 3 Comments Author: Anuj Guglani

 

In such a short period since its launch, Tata Hexa has become the No 1 Rated Vehicle in its category at Motor Uncle

That means All India Experts and its actual users the initial ones give it the highest rating amongst the other vehicles  in its class.

Surprisingly it shows highest rating in two parameters which have actually been Achilles Heel for Tata Motors : Cost of Ownership and After Sales Experience!

Now thats really surprising! or is it Tata Motors Customers saying the Ford Punchline "Feels like Family for a Change"  :)

so what is really special about this vehicle apart from its ability to pull a Boeong 777   thanks to an overwhelming 400Nm torque? 

SO what the grapevine about the Hexa ?

Hexa Motor Uncle ratings are here : https://motoruncle.com/cars/review/Tata-Hexa

All said and done Tata Motors is surely going through a metamorphosis ... Hexa and now Tamo Racemo!

Wish you all the best Tata Motors ..!!! way to Go!

Anuj Guglani all these plan hauling tactics dont work long time ... Tata needs to . fix dealers and fix its service experience .. Resale value, pride of ownership would follow too ..
Jay Guglani innova rocks any day beta
dr neelu chhabra So whats the verdict ? Is hexa better than Innova ?

Baleno RS - Maruti Suzuki's First Turbo Petrol Booster Jet Engine & Most Powerful Maruti Hatch

04 Mar 2017 1 Comments Author: Monica Ray

 

The Baleno surely turbocharged Maruti Numbers and was a saving grace for Nexa Network after the debacle of the overpriced S Cross

Maruti Suzuki debuts its tubocharged DI Gasoline engine. It drops a cylinder to save weight.  Calls it the Booster Jet engine

It unleashes 101 bhp of power at 5500 rpm and 150 Nm of torque available between 1700-4500 rpm.  

The VW Polo GT TSI , on the other hand, belts out 104 bhp and 175 Nm of torque from a 1.2 litre engine and is paired to a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission.

The Baleno RS that way has a 5 Speed Manual Option for the still Manual Crazy Indian Customers. Not really sure if the Polo is it's closest Competitior. While VW Polo has been just an average Performer sales wise... Baleno has been on a 1.5 Months waiting for quite some time now

The exciitng featiues like Black interriors, LED Headlamps, Subtle Skirts,  only top notch variant ie Alpha trip make it a great Package

Thought the Test Drive of the actual vehicle supercedes all specs on Paper ... Hoping it outperforms and outdelivers and goes beyond..

so People what are your thoughts on the Baleno RS??

 

dr neelu chhabra Oh wow ... Looks nice !

Aadhar 2.0 - For Every Govt Property on the Road

26 Feb 2017 1 Comments Author: Anuj Guglani

 

 
 

Aadhar 2.0 - For Every Govt Property on the Road

Every Fixture on the road should have a simple unique code which is prominently displayed. Examples of Fixtures : Bus Stop, Every Street Light, traffic Signal, Road Sign

Two Benefits :

1. Each Code linked to a unique Geo Location Coordinates. In an emergency, just tell the code of the nearest Fixture to emergency Service vehicle and they can put it in their Hand Held device and simply Navigate. Precious time is not wasted in locating victim or Accident or hazard site 

 

2. It becomes like the Aadhar on the road, helps manage Govt assets better, effective utilisation of tax Payer's Money 

 

Road traffic safety :

1. Cycles should not come in black colour. Most Unsafe colour at Night ... Leads to Accidents ... Not Visible

2. Mandatory to have speed Breakers on either sides of road and Pedestrian Light with Zebra Crossing  outside each and every  school in the country 

 

We look forward to Honble PM' s response on these suggestions as in the grievance Registration no : PMOPG/E/2017/0110757

Hum to Pardesi Ho Gaye - Aapki Pyaari HM Ambassador

13 Feb 2017 2 Comments Author: Anuj Guglani

 

They say back in the 60's , half of US was conceived on the backseat of either a Chevy or a Ford! Well even Indian grew up seeing the Ubiquitous Ambassador. It was later joined by Fiat and then Premier Padmini. Prior and In between we had Moris Minor, Standard and many cars with temporary flings. But the Landmaster and then it refined avatar in form of Ambasador stood the test of time.  Till even few years back the most powerful Men and Women of India would proudly occupy its rear seat. 

They say the rear Seat of an Amby was nothing less than the most comfy spring Sofa. Yes that's besides the point that she would ride on Leaf Spring suspension!

A thorough Workhorse, Most Spacious, the signature LIght On/Off Switch at the B Pillar inside akin to the one at Home! One of those rare cars still around, where the fuel tank can be detached within couple of minutes and the fuel can be emptied in a bucket in no time if the gas station attendant has poured the wrong fuel, while the driver was busy on his mobile!

Though eventually there were safety issues and Structural Stability concerns, exacerbated by fall of CK Birla group and complete non Focus on the HM Business.

 

The Taxi Workhorse even now at Kol!

Whether its the cab drivers or the passengers or the person at large on the Street of the City of Joy our Dear Kolkata ... They still swear by this machine. HM - A company headquartered in their state, they carry that pride with an even more special air. Undoubtedly the Amby instills a special character and colour to the City of Kolkata. The ride could be bumpy, the Ac might not be working, could be tiring to drive and manuever on the narrow streets, Challenge in Procuring spare parts...But Little Complaints!

Is this Foreign Invasion for the Better?

Image Courtesy : team BHP

HM had officially stopped production of the Legendary and Iconic Ambassador some time back. The plant at Uttarpada was in a shambles. There were grave  issues around Employee severance, welfare, technology, safety, upkeep

So it was a dying company and a deplorable state of affairs ... So if this foregn invasion ie Brand Acquisition by PSA Peugeot can infuse a new life in the brand, Product and set up ... It just might be worth it ... One has to surely keep in mind that Peugeot's journey in India ... last 25 years has been marred by failed attempts and false starts ... starting from the 309 , Premier JV and the attempt in 2011 with a plant at Sanand which again couldnt take off ...

 

Well Inline of the Never say Die spirit of the French Car Maker ... you never know  two negatives could make a positive!

Looking forward to the next Amby Model, Bon Jour! Pheonix! 

 

dr neelu chhabra So whats the next Amby model called ? Le Phoenix ?
Monica Ray Reading this article is too emotional and Nostalgic for me ...!!

Anuj Guglani Wow! Looks Awesome!!

Who's fault will it be??

01 Feb 2017 1 Comments Author: Kartik Gupta

 

Technology has been always been developed to provide comfort and safety to humans.

We are also seeing a similar trend in the auto world with the development of autonomous cars. There are semi-autonomous cars for sale in market already. Almost all the OEMs are trying to develop their own autonomous cars for the future and that future doesnt seem to far away. All this is being developed keeping in mind the driver's comfortability and safety.

But then no technology is ever 100% fail proof! We have had many examples recently of self driving cars carshing, just to name a few:

  • Google's self driving car jumped a red light and was involved in a serious crash.
  • Tesla's self driving car suffered a crash last year, killing the driver. 

Am not questioning the technology here, self driving cars certainly have a better record than the human driven cars in terms of crashes. But what am questioning here is that, who's responsible if the self driving cars crash?

Who takes the blame if a component or a software malfunction in the car leads to an accident? The OEM? or the driver?

OEMs like Google and Tesla say that if the cars crash they will take the responsibility, but in a recent crash Tesla blamed the driver saying that the accident could have been avoided if the driver was alert and had kept his hands on the stearing wheel. But they are designing cars which will be completely self driven and require zero human input. what about then? Companies like GM say that to some extent the driver inside the car will be also held responsible if a crash occurs, as he/she can react to avoid the crash.

If OEMs are taking the responsibility and compensating the damages, then what will happen to car insurance companies? What about damages caused by natural phenomenons likes hail storm and typhoons? Who will compensate if the autonomous cars hits a pedestrian? Also all the traffic laws are currently written with the idea of a driver behind the wheel? Will we have to change the driving laws as well?

Anuj Guglani It shall be a puzzle for the Insurance co's and the Courts to establish Liability once tech takes over the wheel ... partially or completely ... Exciting times at the same time Challenging .. How safe and Practical these self driving machines would turn out to be ... Hope its safer days ahead and not Judgement Day!

General Motors India , What's Up Dude?

30 Jan 2017 3 Comments Author: Anuj Guglani

 

General Motors India or GMI, as how the company started its operations after the JV with HM was brought to end ... Its been more than 2 decades...... Some great Products,  Some great People, Some great Product Failures, Controversies.... The Company has fought and survived it all ... 

 However .... last few years ... It has chosen to just do the downward Spiral ... whether its Customer satisfaction, Sales, New and Exciting Products, Dealer Experience... and of course most important consequence Profitibility ..... As per Jan 17, 2017 report, the losses are 4 times it's Net Worth.

So what's the road Ahead for GM India? Can GM Corp afford to close the operations in an emerging economy like India? It's ramifications shall be felt even at Detroit as shareholders shall question the competency of not just Indian but Global Corner office as well of GM. 

It can be the greatest Challenge and also the finest Opporunity ... Something what gets taught at Harvard or Stanford Biz Schools!

May the Best come out!

Anuj Guglani Great Mistake - GM ... Leaving India ... Janta maaf nahin karegee... Such knee Jerk decisions coming from Detroit Boardrooms ... Sad ...
Kartik Gupta I find GM almost invisible now! They are having a real hard time in the Indian auto market currently. I loved Beat and Cruze. But with better products offered by other OEMs, gone are the days of these cars as well. Hope they can make a turn around!
Monica Ray One of the longest running Auto maker of all times...the Big Daddy of Detroit .. The creator of Epic Brands like the Chevy , Cadillac , Buick and Products like Corvette, Camaro ... Has to struggle ...Especially when they were the early movers and had great run up compared to other car makers... Wishing you all the best Dude...for a great Turnaround!

The Next Big Thing - Tesla Motors

18 Jan 2017 5 Comments Author: Tanuj Saraf

 

The Next Big Thing

This title, at times has been used for various tech launches and events. But when I mention this in context of Tesla Motors, it makes sense. Let's find out why.

Henry Ford once said, “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.” Likewise, the people of this century wanted more efficient (but still conventionally driven) cars, until of course Tesla showed up.

For the uninitiated, these are cars that open doors for you when they sense you approaching, cars that will drive themselves to meet you at the click of a button, they have sensors all around to void obstructions and yes with the new Autopilot System, they drive themselves too (well at least to a large extent). Though technically what Tesla calls autopilot is broadly a combination of existing technologies namely Automatic Lane Keeping + Automatic Cruise Control + Automatic Parking.

And forget about the fuel bills because Tesla runs on Lithium-ion batteries. In addition to that, Tesla has a network of 795 supercharging stations worldwide where you can charge your car batteries for free (For cars ordered by 15th Jan, 2017).

With the launch of Tesla Model 3 last year, Tesla did for electric cars, what the iPhones did for Smart phones i.e. democratize them and push them from a niche audience into the mainstream.

Don’t mistake yourself to think that Tesla was an accidental success from the pool of companies that try to revolutionize the world. Want to know why?

It is because everything about what Tesla is doing today was released by Elon Musk (CEO of Tesla Motors) 10 years ago. Have a look at the excerpt from his Master Plan 1.

Now moving on, let’s talk about the cars a bit. Shall we?

Currently Tesla offers 2 cars primarily, Model S and Model X and though the Model 3 was officially launched last year, it won’t be available until later this year. You can choose from either of the single or dual motor setup. We have the option to choose for a variety of battery, colours and fancy features options. You can choose from either of the single or dual motor setup.

        

I won’t bore you with the specifications here. If you are a car fanatic, I’m sure you know about them already from the Safety Features to the Touch Screen panel. From Bio-Defense mode to Wi-Fi and Internet connectivity, also Automatic keyless entry works like a charm. And if you aren’t already aware of its specifications; I’m sure the above sentences made you curious enough to check it out.

In the end, I’d just like to conclude by Elon Musk, “If you go back a few hundred years, what we take for granted today would seem like magic - being able to talk to people over long distances, to transmit images, flying, accessing vast amounts of data like an oracle. These are all things that would have been considered magic a few hundred years ago.” So rather than sticking to the ordinary and conventional, go out and innovate.

FootNote: Feel free to comment for further discussions.

 

 

 

Ashok Chhabra Very interesting post ..
Mudit Agrawal Insightful Article.
Tanuj Saraf Tesla has been working really hard to create sustainability a reality. Last Year they merged with Solar City and now they have the means to generate green energy and Tesla Power packs to store them as well. Recently they completely transformed an entire island of American Samoa from 100% diesel to 100% solar powered. Even if we leave these things apart, Tesla cars still are beautifully designed and well crafted. One of the major concerns people had with electric cars in the past was that they couldn't get much acceleration and power out of their cars. But with Model S accelerating from 0-100 kph in a mere 2.7 seconds, I'll have to say that they addressed this issue handsomely and provided people with a power packed Sedan.
Kartik Gupta Completely agree with you Tanuj. Its been a series of brilliant launches from Tesla in current times. Amazing to see Mr. Musk work with such passion towards the goal of futuristic cars and sustainable technology.
Anuj Guglani Undoubtedly .... Tesla has Brilliant tech ... albeit a few bugs here and there .... and yes the contentious issue of the person losing life in a deriverless car... However...the future is well envisaged by Mr Musk ... We cant run EV's on Thermal Power ... else it shall be just shifiting emissions from tailpipe to thermal station chimney tower... We need clean energy to power the EV.... Many countries still fail to understand this !

Mercedes proved it Again

18 Jan 2017 0 Comments Author: Anirudh Sharma

 

 

Beginning

In August 1888, Bertha Benz set off on her famous first long-distance automobile journey from Mannheim to Pforzheim. In doing so, the wife of Carl Benz demonstrated the suitability of the Benz patent motor car for everyday use and thus paved the way for the worldwide success of the automobile. Precisely 125 years later, in August 2013, Mercedes-Benz recorded a no less spectacular pioneering achievement following the same route. Developed on the basis of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the S 500 INTELLIGENT DRIVE research vehicle autonomously covered the approximately 100 kilometres between Mannheim and Pforzheim. Yet, unlike Bertha Benz all those years ago, it did not have the road “all to itself”, but had to negotiate dense traffic and complex traffic situations.
 
 

Autonomous long-distance drive.

Mercedes-Benz became the first motor manufacturer to demonstrate the feasibility of autonomous driving on both interurban and urban routes
 

Autonomous driving.

Partially automated driving is already available to drivers of new Mercedes-Benz E and S-Classmodels: the new DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot is capable of steering the vehicle mainly autonomously through traffic jams. This system thus forms the core of “Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive”, the intelligent networking of all safety and comfort systems.
 
 
DISTRONIC PLUS
 
DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot takes the burden off the driver when it comes to staying in lane and the system is now also able to partially autonomously follow vehicles in traffic jams. Thanks to the stereo camera, the Brake Assist system BAS PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist is, for the first time, now able to detect crossing traffic and pedestrians, as well as boost the braking force applied by the driver. If the lane markings are broken lines, Active Lane Keeping Assist can detect when the adjacent lane is occupied, especially by oncoming traffic, and reduce the risk of the vehicle leaving its lane unintentionally by applying the brakes on one side. Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus allows the main-beam headlamps to be kept on permanently without dazzling other road users.
 

Das Auto

17 Jan 2017 3 Comments Author: Atharv Shiromani

 

Centuries ago some great minds of the period created wheel to ease up their travelling process.On the foundation of which in the late 19th century the concept of automobiles was fabricated which marked the beginning of a new era and the rest is history.

The first ever engined car was designed in the year 1807 by François Isaac de Rivaz which was fueled by hydrogen but the concept gained popularity when Karl Benz was granted the patent of first engine in the year 1879 but it took around 7-8 years for the automobiles to gain popularity among the common public and since then there has been no looking back .The evolution of automobile industry has seen a very rapid growth thanks to people like Henry Ford and Enzo Ferrari for devoting their career to the industry and revolutionizing it. 

The history or rather the journey of the automobiles has been very great and pleasing as evolution never took a step back instead it kept on taking big leaps as time passed by and now it has reached such a point where we are able to build "cars of the future".Talking of the car industry it is divided into 4 major categories- Sedan,Hatchback,SUV & MPV each made to suit different class of people.

Sedan:

A sedan is a passenger car in a three-box configuration with A (engine compartment), B (passenger & driver compartment) & C cargo compartment. eg- Maruti Swift Dzire

Hatchback:

A hatchback is a car body configuration with a rear door that swings upward to provide access to a cargo area.eg-Hyundai Elite i20

SUV:

A sports utility vehicle (SUV) is a vehicle similar to a station wagon or estate car that is usually equipped with four-wheel drive for on-road or off-road ability.eg-Ford EcoSport

MPV:

MPV (multi-purpose vehicle) is a car classification used in some countries to describe superminis or subcompacts which have taller build and often with a flexible interior layout.eg-Toyota Innova


There is a new totally different class of vehicles in the industry gaining popularity these days,"The Smart Electric Cars".They work on concept which is a fusion of electric power and AI.The use of AI is the most fascinating feature of these smart cars.With the help of AI these cars can learn to drive and make decision on its own like changing lanes,adjusting speed according to traffic,parking etc. thereby satisfying the actual meaning of automobile i.e. 'self-driving'. Interestingly,the learning process or the driving problems can be enhanced or tweaked with help of software updates.Moreover these cars very powerful too,when comes to power they show what kind of beast they are.The companies like Tesla,Chevrolet and Faraday Future are killing it in the industry with their flagship cars like the TESLA Model S,Chevy Bolt and FF91 respectively.Inspired by them,even the Cupertino's tech giant APPLE is also getting ready to step in the game with its smart electric car project "Titan" which is expected to be released in future soon.

 The automobile industry has seen many reforms over the year and many more are yet to come so all we need to do is to wait and see what comes next.

New Honda City ... Hey But what's New in it?

17 Jan 2017 2 Comments Author: Monica Ray

 

Yesterday the Auto Media went Gaga ... On the launch of the New City in Thailand ...

while the entire world is going Woo Hoo!! over it ... I frankly struggle to locate, find "what New in the New City" 

Probably I'm not a Petro head who knows the car part by part , part no wise... well so are the normal 90% customers if not more... who had been waiting for the new city for a long long time..

Auto journos says ... Most changes are on the exterior ... and thats where I struggle the most to spot them ... They says its the new grille ... bla bla bla ... But no idea...

They say there would be leather seats, stereo with car Play, ABS ... Well Good Morning even the Ignis and Baleno come with these features now...

They say powertrain is very smooth and refined.... Hello! Honda has mastered making the finest petrol powertrains for donkey years now...

Did I head DRL's ? Daytime running Lamps ? YOu call that new in today's age... If they come ... they shall be restroing basic hygiene... 

So my questions remains ...  #WhatsNew?

Ola & Uber all set to take over Personal Mobility ?

15 Jan 2017 0 Comments Author: Monica Ray

 

The way Ola and Uber are hogging up the Personal Mobility space by unbelievable accuracy, precision in service. By the competitive tarrifs ... cheaper than an Auto rickshaw and cheaper than owning personal set of wheels... Is that the day not too far when becuase of pure maths and convenience, we shall stop buying our own cars and hirng our own drivers. 

The days of Cars all accessorised, multiple varied colours, personal customisation, various cars and models out there to see and savour ... Are the days limited and counted?

The roaring petrol engines on K&N Exhausts or the special alloys and wide tyres... the First date in the car ... without any intrusion ... The Long Drives with one's Life Partner .. the surprise special gift in form of a car on Karwa Chauth or Diwali or Birthday or Anniversary ...

Would all cars vanish /turn  into a coherent white stream of Ola and Uber, next 10 years ? Wait a minute ... How do these companies manage to pay such high incentives to drivers and susidise our journey bills ... Its a dual Sword by which they are piercing their investor money reserves...... How long can they sustain this mad cash burn ?  Uber has already exited China for the same reason ... they had burnt USD2 Billion in one Single year and they decided to save their business in the other 350 Odd cities ...across the world ... than win China by going Bust ...

It shall surely be exciting to see how future unbfolds and what kind of strategies viz innovation, business, cash, on ground, choice of cars, involving car brands works ... 

Till then let me enjoy my Long Drives and romantic dinners ... Drive safe ... Always wear a Seat Belt or a Helmet  ...

Anuj Guglani Wow! Looks Awesome!

Maruti - Master of lightweight technology

07 Jan 2017 4 Comments Author: Gaurav Bhateja

 

It seems maruti has mastered the art of lightweight technology. With paper like metal sheets they seems to show no concerns on passengers safety.

Majority of indian buyers are obsessed with Maruti name and generally ignore safety aspects.

Volkswagen and Skoda though costly to buy and maintain but its good to see that they do not compromise on safety front.

Kartik Gupta Oh wow! thanks for such a wonderful insight! @dr neelu
dr neelu chhabra It's not that the car body has to be super rigid or strong all across. . there has to be a combination of soft and hard steels. . Crumple zones and rigid passenger cabin. . So if we take the case of tata indica ... the body is rigid ..and the Fender is soft metal to absorb the impact which is equally important if not more ... the absence of this combination of soft and hard metals actually made cars like ambassador which looked superb safe and sturdy., actually unsafe..
Kartik Gupta I have the same problem with my Hyundai Verna... though they provide airbags for safety, but still the metal body of the car is comparatively weaker. A simple nudge from another vehicle creates such a deep and big dent. Where as my friend's Polo is so rugged in design. I guess all Japanese and Korean companies prefer using lightweight tech. and provide more airbags. Where as the European and Americans prefer the other way round. But no matter what way they choose the safety of the driver and the passengers should be the foremost priority for every company!
Monica Ray Majority people in our country are generally and consciously ignorant to Safety and Environment...Only Govt rules and compliances can reign these things... which sadly get excessively influenced by Car Makers and their powerful lobbies... after around 8% of GDP comes from Auto and around 20 million jobs...

Honda Jazz Relaunch

05 Jan 2017 4 Comments Author: Anuj Guglani

 

Must say the Honda Jazz is one of the best cars in its segment. The earlier Jazz was a tad overpriced and subsequently was sold was on an attractive discount which led to quick stock clearing from the Honda Factory Finshed Goods yard and Dealer Inventory .

Honda took the learning from the Old Jazz Price pain and launched the "The New Jazz" at a competitive price

The New JAzz initially showed initial bouyant sales figures, however later plateaued and then subsequently tanked

Does the Indian consumer still find it overpriced? For the performance, style. equipement levels, I feel it is rightly priced.

Was it not promoted and or marketed  rightly ? Did it get caught between the Utility segment and the aspirational one ?

Were the people confused by its unique styling which cut across traditional lines hatchback and sedan Or is the 3 Box Sedan Customer still adamant for the Boot outside for Social reasons

Anywhich ways, I personally love this car and one can check out its rating by All India Experts and its actual users here at Motor Uncle 

https://motoruncle.com/cars/review/Honda-Jazz

 

Edward Cross I extremely enjoyed your article, your article is exceptionally petrified me in the learning procedure and give extra information to me, perhaps I can gain more from you, and I will sit tight for your next article, much obliged. Visit here: https://speedycustomessaywriting.org/
Kartik Gupta Oh it's a really good car, But i believe that the marketing could have been better by Honda. Also as far I believe people never could see it as a hatchback due to its elongated shape.
Gaurav Bhateja For me few special things in this car are CVT with paddle shift (only VAT-model) & Magic seats (only VX model) but both comes at heavy price. If somehow these features can come in lower models, maybe SV model then i would run to buy this car.
Monica Ray I simply love the Jazz .... I feel marketing and reach out of this car could have been better! Its a great product

How safe & Practical are Autonomous & Driverless Cars

03 Jan 2017 3 Comments Author: Anuj Guglani

 

The world is going mad after Driverless and Autonomous Cars. How safe and Practical are they? 

Especially for developing markets like BRIC 

Would you be comfortable in driving or be driven in One ?

 

How do we envisage the world in next 5 to 10 years ... Would we see self driving cars and pods buzzing down the roads ?

 

Kartik Gupta I doubt in next 5 to 10 years there will be driver less cars buzzing around on the streets. Its an incredible technology and vision but I bet its gonna an expensive novelty to have in your car. Though i would love to experience travelling in a self driving car! Also on streets like those in India plus the kind of traffic we have here... the computers on-board will simply give up and shutdown! :p
Jay Guglani driverless should be a reality sooner than we think
Monica Ray How about driving like this at Chandni Chowk ... Yes its possible ! if only driverless cars allowed and noone else!

HUD on my windshield

30 Dec 2016 7 Comments Author: Anuj Guglani

 

In the era of several distractions and 75% of accidents happening due to driver error and Driverless cars still a bit away ... Why can't we have more Inclusion and acceptance of HUD 

Just the way the naughtiest Brat in the class is made the class monitor... Tine to actively engage the navigation, phone , music system on HUD ..

 So that atleast the driver has Head Up ... No matter what ! 

Kartik Gupta @Guragam Singh: Thats a very good point you raised!!! See the HUD system was 1st introduced to the fighter aircrafts before the commercial liners. A fighter aircraft pilot uses a HUD system much more than a commercial liner, and that too during dogfights. During this time a lot of inputs are required by the pilots, who are under a lot of stress. That is how the HUD helps, by providing information in the line of sight of pilot rather than taking any inputs. HUD is all about giving information in a better manner rather than taking in inputs. That is why I said that it might help in reducing the stress of the drivers. Navigation systems are visual outputs to the drivers, but none see them as a distraction I suppose. Infact incorporating a navigation system to a HUD will only help the driver as they are generally located a little below the line of sight of the drivers in present day cars. Also I agree, that adopting a technology from one industry to other might not always be successful, but there have been many examples where they have been successfully incorporated. For example: The conveyer belt system adopted by Henry ford, which gave us the 1st mass produced cars (Ford - Model T). But I guess this a very relative topic. Some driver might like it, some might not. But as a driver I would love to have this system in my car.
Guragam Singh While this does seem like a nice concept and is aesthetically alluring, the fact that it's been successfully used at 36,000 ft. is no guarantee of a repeat performance on the ground, where prevailing conditions are radically different. Up in the sky, under normal conditions, there are no obstacles that try to dislodge you from your chosen path, a stark contrast to road conditions where something or the other keeps competing with you for the same road space. Do we really want to add audio-visual pings in the car cabin to the growing list of distractions one faces while driving?
Jay Guglani it's a great feature but at what cost. .. Yes we should begin it's I lntroduction so that it travels from novelty to hygiene and prices drop ...and yes like most disruptive tech ... this too comes from the defence forces...
Monica Ray would love to have it on my car screen ... Hey! Didnt Google try it on goggles too .. but they last I heard ... they shelved that project!
Anuj Guglani Wow! Well said Kartik
Kartik Gupta Heads Up Display (HUD) has been in use in the Aerospace/Aeronautics Industry for a long time now, and it has revolutionized the way pilots fly now. It has showed less stress on pilots as compared to earlier. So I bet its definitely gonna be a hit in the automobile industry as well. Also its being introduced to Formula 1 in the upcoming season!!! Now if Formula 1 engineers find that its a help to Formula 1 drivers at such high speeds, I believe its gonna help the daily drivers as well in their driving.
Anuj Guglani @kartik @gaurav what say ?

The giant – Tata Hexa has arrived

30 Dec 2016 2 Comments Author: Gaurav Bhateja

 

If anyone is interested to try this machine, register yourself here: 

http://hexa.tatamotors.com/hexa-experience-centre?utm_source=facebook_cpc&utm_campaign=hexa_experience_center_bangalore&utm_medium=cpc

 Heard this machine is better than Innova Crysta, XUV500, and few others in terms of ride, handling, safety measures, and also supposedly comes with air suspension.

Monica Ray Can it dethrone the Innova... Really tough ... Tata Motors has a long road ahead in Image Makeover, Dealers SOP's and establishing itself in the premium space... till now .. Indica sold due to absence of credible competition of a diesel car at the price point ..This is the real game! All the best to Tata Motors!
Kartik Gupta Wow.. Better than Innova Crysta?!?! That's a big claim!!! But lets see what Tata has in store for us! There has been a massive change in the way they are designing and manufacturing cars though. The quality of their cars has certainly gotten better with time. But it will be a delight to see an Indian OEM do well if the claim turns out to be true!!!

Why cant Girls drive Big Cars?

28 Dec 2016 3 Comments Author: Monica Ray

 

I m a bit mad on media, content writers and the society at large

A simple google search of best cars for women shows up results of only small dinky hatchbacks.

What does the male dominated society think? Girls cant drive or handle big machines!

I give out a clarion call to girls and femnists to admonish this belief of girls being second fiddle, weak Gender

Girls are no less and can have a lot of Fun with their machines

 

Anuj Guglani Girls are flying planes , maneuvering ships ... whats in a car ... come on ...even a computer can drive it ... LOL !!
Kartik Gupta Some examples of women who have brought major contributions and achieved great laurels in this industry are: Florence Lawrence, Charlotte Bridgwood, Denise McCluggage, Danica Patrick and Monisha Kaltenborn (Being an Indian and a big Formula 1 fan I had to mention her surely!)
Kartik Gupta I completely agree with you! Media and society have long neglected the role women have played in various industries, including the automotive industry. Women are now flying fighter jets, commercial liners and space shuttles let alone cars!!! There have been and still are women who have and are still bringing remarkable and landmark contribution to the automotive world!

Kartik Gupta @Anuj Guglani: The launch in India is expected somewhere mid of 2017. Though its up for sale in Japan from 4th January 2017.
Kartik Gupta Yes. It looks amazing. Keeping in mind the upcoming Ignis and the ICOTY 2017 winner Vitara Brezza I love the way Maruti has changed its design philosophy and got it to the Indian auto market.
Gaurav Bhateja looks awesome
Monica Ray Super! I wish to experience it right now!!
Anuj Guglani wow! Looks Awesome Man! When is the Launch ?

Vitara Brezza wins the Icoty!

27 Dec 2016 7 Comments Author: Anuj Guglani

 

WOw! This is Great news!! Brezza wins the Icoty! 

A great vehicle truly deserved!!

Maruti Suzuki on Wednesday said its SUV Vitara Brezza sold nearly 83,000 units since its launch in March this year and won the "Indian Car of the Year 2017" award.

"Vitara Brezza has sold nearly 83,000 units since its launch in March 2016, making it one of India's top 10 selling models and propelling Maruti Suzuki to the leadership position in the utility vehicle space as well," the company said in a statement.

A consortium of 15 auto journalists declared Vitara Brezza the "Indian Car of the Year (ICOTY) 2017" among all the cars launched in 2016. It battled it out against the Hyundai Tucson and Toyota Innova Crysta.

  "Designed and developed by a team of Maruti Suzuki engineers, using Suzuki core technology, engine and platform, Vitara Brezza is heralded as an example of 'Create in India'," Kenichi Ayukawa, WAF Star 2014 & 2016 and Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Maruti Suzuki, was quoted as saying in the statement.
 
 

Kartik Gupta @Monica Ray: Indeed it has great look! There is still atleast a month waiting on this machine sadly!
Monica Ray If Looks Could Kill ..... Has the waiting reduced on this machine?
Kartik Gupta Also I love the concept of 'I-create' introduced by Maruti. Having the option of customizing the exterior styling of the car, and with so many options, is certainly a big selling point for Brezza within the Indian automotive market.
Kartik Gupta Incredible win for Maruti suzuki! Going against worthy opponents like Innova Crysta and Hyundai Tuscon, I must say its a big win!! This brings back Maruti back in the automotive competition, and with a segment (SUV) they previously struggled with.
