New SsangYong Rexton Review: Mahindra’s Next Big SUV For India

It was a cloudy day, and I was thinking – please do not let it rain on the day I am finally driving the new SsangYong Rexton. I only had a very small window of time with the car, and any rain would have totally messed that up. It did rain while I was on my way from Seoul to ... Read More »

2017 Yamaha FZ25 road test review

Yamaha has had great success in getting Indian customers to invest more in their motorcycles. First came the R15, a bike that got people thinking it was okay to spend over Rs 1 lakh on a 150cc motorcycle. Soon after, the FZ16 convinced buyers that you could pay more for design, engineering and quality even if you didn’t have segment-leading ... Read More »

Audi, in fact, had a long line of orders and it has already sold 800 units of the car, in India; and ... Read More »

2017 Triumph Bobber road test review

Triumph’s Bobber is the fifth motorcycle from the new Bonneville line and perhaps the most niche model of all. The evolution is interesting because Triumph has the T100 and T120 models in the middle, holding down the full-retro theme that underpins the Bonneville line. The Triumph Street Twin is retro-flavoured but not enough to not appeal to people who want ... Read More »

McLaren 720S (2017) review

The 720S replaces McLaren’s 650S and ushers in a bold new design language. But does the excitement run more than skin deep? One word: wow! A few more: if McLaren is capable of stuff like this, why did the 12C (and its facelifted 650S successor) look so dull? For reasons known only to itself, McLaren designed the 12C before hiring ...
