The name Ferrari will give anyone goosebumps, and getting to drive one will give you even more! For all the Ferraris I have been lucky enough to drive, trust me it never gets old! Sure ...

Comparison Review: Tata Tiago vs Maruti Suzuki Celerio Diesel

Whenever I tell people from the yesteryear about what I do for a living, I normally have to repeat it a couple of times; to make them understand that the profession actually exists. This is immediately followed by a phrase I’ve not gotten used to – ‘We didn’t have this during our time’. The phrase brings me to the choice ... Read More »

The Octavia is now in its 3rd generation. We have had it in India since October 2013, but unlike the last two gens we have not got the sportier performance RS version as yet. Power-hungry people rejoice! Skoda has finally confirmed the powerful Octavia will come to India in 2017. So for those of you who don’t remember – let ... Read More »

Porsche 718 Boxster First Drive Review

More than any other manufacturer, Porsche is wedded to tradition. After all, for over fifty years, they’ve been selling a car with the same basic silhouette; and they continue to stick their engine behind the rear axle. Of course they’ve made it work; defying physics in the bargain, but Porsche have always stuck with tradition. It is why Porsche-philes have ... Read More »

Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet Review

Take the ‘regular’ car and give it a massive testosterone shot. Pretty much what the guys at AMG do to the Mercedes-Benz range of stock cars. Mercedes-AMG did not waste any time at all to give the new C-Class Cabriolet exactly that. So while we were in Italy to drive the new C-Cabrio, we also got our hands on the ... Read More »

Suddenly there seems to be a lot of action in the small car market. This is the highest volume segment in the Indian car bazaar, and it is still clearly ruled by the mighty Maruti Suzuki. We’re seeing yet another facelift for the bestselling Maruti Suzuki Alto 800. It looks like pressure from rivals like the Renault Kwid and new ... Read More »

Hyundai Creta Petrol Automatic Review

My niece once asked me if she could get some candy; and contrary to what might be believed, I said ‘yes’ (you read that right). My only condition was that she had to make up her mind and buy one, which turned out to be quite a task for her. Sharing this dilemma are Indians, who want to buy a ... Read More »
