2014 Audi RS7 Sportback Launched in India
The Audi RS7 was launched earlier this week in India. It is the most powerful Audi to be offered in India, yep you heard that right. It’s a 4-seater, 4-door coupe with a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 that produces 35 more horses than the Audi R8 V10 sportscar! Price? 1.28 crore, ex-showroom Delhi.
2015 Hyundai Sonata Facelift
Hyundai is gearing up to give the Sonata a facelift in 2014. In our eyes, the Sonata got the most extreme ‘fluidic’ treatment of all the cars in their stable and that may have hampered its sales too. The facelift should make the design more easy on the eyes and you can always expect Hyundai to load the car to the gills with features.
2014 Honda City Launched In India
One of the most awaited launches of the year, the 2014 Honda City is finally here! The latest generation fo the car brings with it first-in-segment features like the touch-panel air-con control on the centre console. This time, the introduction of the 1.5-litre i-DTEC earth dreams engine has stolen the limelight. Prices for the diesel variants start at Rs. 8.62 Lakh, the petrol starts at Rs. 7.42 lakh and the automatic petrol variant starts at Rs. 9.49 Lakh
2014 Maruti Suzuki Celerio To Be Launched Soon
A lot of news about the Maruti Suzuki A-Star replacement, which could be called the Celerio or A-Star or A-Wind depending on who you ask, was revealed this week including spy shots and the fact that it could be the first hatchback in the country to be fitted with a cluthless automatic transmission.
Toyota Etios and Etios Liva Upgraded
Toyota has gone ahead and upgraded the Etios sedan and Etios Liva hatchback. The Liva gets two new top-end variants for the Etios Liva Diesel. The G and GD variants of the Etios sedan on the other hand get newer interiors which do away with the basic plasticky ones available earlier.
