I didn’t get a chance to visit the Auto Expo 2018, however I have been following it via print and electronic media. I really liked below cars and wanted to share my feelings here. However I’m unable to post any pictures because I didn’t take any myself and can’t just use other’s pics here that may be copyrighted.
True to the name it’s an amazing car that’s very cleverly designed as per man maximum machine minimum strategy of Honda, but was let down only by the exterior styling. This new Amaze unveiled in the 2018 auto expo leaves nothing to complain about it, at least in my view. The front of the car looks really futuristic almost like a smaller City or even Civic. The nose is completely changed and interiors are revamped too. The best part is that now even there is a CVT automatic version in the diesel variant. I’m sure it’s going to raise the sell graph for Honda.
This car looks like going to give tough competition to Honda City and Maruti Ciaz. Feels like Toyota has started learning its India specific lessons from Etios models. Yaris is expected to come with all bells and whistles like powerful engines, CVT automatic gear box, safety features seen mostly on cars from higher classes and Toyota reliability can be taken for granted. Only if they price is competitively in Indian market, it can be unstoppable.
Maruti Suzuki new Swift
It doesn’t look anything like the swifts we know here in India. AMT option is now available in all the variants along side manual, because more people in the congested cities now are inclined towards automatic cars. It’s going to retain the same 1.2 ltr petrol and 1.3 ltr diesel engines and that’s not bad by any means.
Tata looks like has learnt a lot recently about designing its cars, and this one really takes their designing prowess to the next level. In a flash the H5X looks like a bigger Nexon from the side. But then look closer and it reveals a lot more; look at the wheels. However, it’s still a concept, so it remains to be seen how the actual car comes out.
This concept really looks like straight from the Sci-Fi world. It looks nothing like any car that we’re used to seeing on our roads. The huge wheels, the four wheel drive system, an electric motor powering each of the wheels promise a really engaging drive experience.
Kia Stinger GT
Not much is known about Kia since this brand has no cars on road in India yet, but this particular car really looked attractive along with its raw specs. It looks like a true performance car. If sources on internet are to be believed it’s coming with engines ranging from 200PS to 370PS. The pricing remains to be seen, which is a major factor in our purchase decisions.
Awesome design is what I would say about this awaited premium hatchback from Tata. It’ll compete with the Baleno and i20 in the Indian market.
