The new Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza has really stormed in – initial bookings suggest this will be a mega hit for the market leader. As I said in my Vitara Brezza review I had honestly expected Maruti Suzuki to get brutal and severely undercut the competition with very aggressive prices. But for the most part the 6.99 lakh starting price ... Read More »

The Renault Duster has been a massive success for the French carmaker in India, and it has also been the NDTV Car of the Year 2013.

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Review

As I sit down to write my review of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, I am somewhat conflicted. It is after all rather ironic that I am talking about an SUV becoming one of Maruti Suzuki’s most significant products ever. Why? It is a small car specialist that has built its reputation and its business – globally and more so ... Read More »

Exclusive: 2016 Mercedes-Benz G500 First Drive

It’s been pronounced dead several times, but the G-Wagen by Mercedes-Benz is more alive than ever. At the mature age of 36, it gets yet another refresh – a relatively minor one, as you wouldn’t “modify a Rembrandt painting,” correct?
