Mercedes C-Class 250 CDI Better Than its Competitors

Mercedes cars lately had a new addition to its bucket to attract its customers to its most cherished sedan, the all new 2012 250 CDI AMG. The car has been already considered as most aggressive sport vehicle of its category as long as handling and driving is concerned. The AMG Sport Package was given the responsibility to adorn the car and it accomplished the task quite brilliantly by embedding most sought after attributes in it. The package has taken full care to coordinate the Mercedes C-Class 250 CDI AMG features to give it a sporty exterior and interior ambience, making it stand ahead of its competitors.

The performance addition of Mercedes C-Class car with AMG Sport Package adds to the exceptional visual attraction to its prior models by making it look more aggressive and sporty. The body style and front and rear apron and side sill panel are installed in the car to make it an eye candy. The 5 spoke 17 inch alloy wheels give it a sporty look, which is further enhanced by the front back calipers. The front brakes are decorated with “Mercedes Benz” letters. Unique perforated front brake disc and the sport suspension are some of the Mercedes C-Class 250 CDI AMG features which suggest why this car is better than its competitors ruling the market place. One is definitely going to fall in love with Mercedes C-Class 250 CDI AMG pictures, which clearly displays that the interior is firmly designed to make it a perfect combination of performance with elegance.

The instrument cluster with three dials is sufficient to add to the beauty of the vehicle. To give the cabin entertainment a new level, a high resolution 11.4 cm TFT color display is added. Some other key attributes are the aluminum coated gear shift, stainless steel made AMG sports pedals and a headlining in black fabric. The floor mats are also designed with AMG logo on them. All in all, the car is a perfect combination to glorify one’s eyes as well as it provides mental peace while driving it. No doubt the previous models of C-Class cars had a great interior and performance characteristics. And a number of vehicles are also available in the market with same attributes, including Audi and BMW. But it’s really tough for all of them competing with the redesigned model of this vehicle. To make the competition fair, the company is availing this car at pretty cost effective rates and Mercedes C-Class 250 CDI AMG price is settled to Rs. 35.90 Lac in Indian market. I shared that Has Maruti Cars overlooked the Maruti SX4?

Has Maruti Cars overlooked the Maruti SX4?

Maruti cars have been working pretty hard to completely change its production line. India's largest automobile maker has launched an updated version of virtually every successful model in last two years. This includes Swift and Swift Dzire as well, which has the largest share in company's sales. The same strategy is applied on some other variants as well and now the company is working on revamping Ritz Facelift and Alto. Taking care of all these models, somewhere the company has overlooked a nice family car Maruti SX4 which was once considered as a great competitor of Honda City. So do the manufacturers really forget SX4?
We can't say it’s completely true, as the company has recently launched the Maruti SX4 Celebtration Edition to celebrate the 10 million sales milestone in Indian marketplace. The car appears to be an upgraded version of SX4 and hence getting good reviews from its customers. But apart from that, somewhere this excellent model seems to be ignored by the company. At least stats suggest that as the sales of this model has declined sharply in past three months. In March, company sold 1520 units of it while it dropped to 634 in April and 405 in May.Some Maruti SX4 pictures will remind you the glory of this vehicle.
Maruti SX4
All other models which are considered as great competitors of this model are performing pretty well. Keeping the Maruti SX4 features in mind, the car deserve to be treated much better. Even though the car is available with both petrol as well as diesel car models still the C-segment cars seems to loose their grip in Indian market. Somewhere, this might be the reason the company is launching the celebration edition with CNG engine as this is something which can enable the manufacturers to get their reputation back.
Maruti SX4
There might be several reasons behind decreasing popularity of this car. First and foremost important is the company has become complacent with SX4 and did not launch any facelift model of it. The other reason might be the Maruti SX4 price which is about 8 to 9 lakh. A customer does not prefer spending this much of amount if he can get something like Honda City by investing a bit more. SX4 possess quite a few good features but presenting the same thing over and over again without any update ultimately distracts the customer's attention. All other manufacturers took benefit of this and this is the reason Maruti SX4 is loosing its grip in auto industry. Now, the company has many expectations from the celebration edition and expecting it to be a big hit in market. I shared that Mercedes Benz C-Class Facelift has Good Features.

Tata Sumo Gold - A Sturdy and Power Packed SUV From Tata Motors

Tata Motor Group is one of the most prestigious and acclaimed automobile manufacturing company in the country. Tata Cars are admired across the country for their low cost maintenance as well as impressive mileage. Even the used tata cars have a flourishing market with many buyers preferring these cars for their economical prices and impressive engines. One of the best SUVs from the stables of this prominent automotive manufacturer is Tata Sumo Gold. This SUV is powerfully built and is capable of taking on any road condition in the country. Tata Sumo Gold has won several rallies with its brilliant performance as well, most recently the 2012 Desert Storm rally. This rally is said to be one of the toughest competitions and spans more than 3500 Kms, starting from Ahmadabad in Gujarat and ending in Delhi.

Tata Sumo Gold

Chevrolet Captiva vs Toyota Fortuner vs hyundai Tucson Which is a Mightier SUV?

The most difficult comparison among all the segments is that of SUVs. These powerfully built vehicles have almost everything which a car buyer dreams of having in their dream vehicle. We are here to compare between three such sturdy and well-built SUVs which are namely; Chevrolet Captiva, Toyota Fortuner and Hyundai Tucson. To start with, a new face lifted version of Chevrolet Captiva is about to be launched in the coming months with quite a few other SUVs. After reading much about these upcoming SUV cars there was an inquisitiveness to figure out which one is better than the other. Read on to see why and how one takes over the others.



The Chevrolet Captiva price and Toyota Fortuner is quite similar as they are priced at Rs. 20.59 lakh and 20.79 lakh, respectively. While Hyundai Tucson comes with a price tag of Rs. 16.27 lakh (all figures mentioned are ex-showroom New Delhi), which is considerably lesser than the other two SUVs. In terms of exteriors, the comparison is mostly between Chevrolet Captiva and Toyota Fortuner, as Hyundai Tucson is rather bland and quite simple with nothing much to talk about, apart from the sturdy body structure and sporty roof rails on the top. Whereas Toyota Fortuner is more magnificent than Chevrolet Captiva and is bigger in size, has roomy interiors and has a massive ground clearance of 220 mm.


The insides of all the three SUVs are quite good, but then again Hyundai Tucson does not have many features to offer, while Chevrolet Captiva has quite a few impressive features like automatic climate control, multi functional steering wheel with mounted audio controls on it, luxurious leather seats, outside temperature display, front and rear fog lamps and so on. In turn, Toyota Fortuner has all of these and also rear air conditioner vents, rear windscreen wiper, electrically folding outside mirrors, rain sensing wiper and also a rear spoiler, which is making it look macho.


The engine segment is taken over by Toyota Fortuner hands down with a mighty 2982cc diesel engine with intercooler and a turbocharger that can generate 171 Ps of power and 343 Nm of torque. While both the other SUVs have a 1991cc engine to talk of with Chevrolet Captiva being a little superior in terms of power as well as torque when compared with Hyundai Tucson. Overall, Toyota Fortuner takes the Numero Uno position without much hassle from both the other contenders. Meanwhile, several other SUVs such as Tata Safari Storme, Renault Duster, Audi Q3 and Premier Rio Diesel are gearing up for their launches in the Indian market very soon. I shared that Chevrolet Sail Hatchback, Looks to Kill For.

Chevrolet Sail Hatchback, Looks to Kill For

There is much buzz about Chevrolet scheduling to launch its dazzling Chevrolet Sail Hatchback in the third quarter of the existing year. General Motors had unveiled Chevrolet Hatchback Sail at the Indian Auto Expo, which was organized in New Delhi this year. The Chevrolet Sail is a sensibly built car, which will definitely meet the requirements of the Indian car market and its customers. The Chevrolet Sail hatchback will cost around Rs. 4 lakh, which is an estimated figure. It is speculated that the Chevrolet Sail hatchback will arrive in three variants i.e. one diesel and two petrol. The 1.3 litre multi jet diesel engine will be a high performance engine, with the capacity to deliver an impressive mileage with low carbon dioxide emissions, whereas the other two variants of Chevrolet Sail hatchback car will come with petrol engines.


One of them will be a 1.2 litre S-TEC petrol engine, which will churn out an apex power of 80.5 PS and a peak torque of 108 Nm. The other petrol variant of Chevrolet Sail hatchback will sport a 1.4 litre S-TEC II petrol engine, which will also churn out excellent power and torque. The driver is surely going to have an amazing driving experience as all the three variants of Chevrolet Sail Hatchback will be skillfully mated to a five speed manual gearbox, which will also ensure easy and smooth shifting of gears. Chevrolet India has taken care of safety features in the New Chevrolet Sail Hatchback as well. This Chevrolet car will come equipped with front and rear disc brakes, which gives an excellent braking system to the hatchback.


Dual Front Air bags, Anti-locking braking system, traction control, electronic stability control, fog lamps and rear seat belts certainly enhances the safety features of this hatchback. The sophisticated 2 DIN Music player along with FM radio promises to make the journey pleasurable. It can be judged from the pictures of Chevrolet Sail Hatchback that this car is even bigger than Chevys previous hatchback cars like Chevrolet Beat and Chevrolet Aveo. General Motors is looking forward to taking its sales in the hatchback segment to new height with Chevrolet Sail. Chevrolet Sail will undoubtedly give a strong battle to Ford Figo, Toyota Etios Lava and Maruti Swift. On the other hand the Chevrolet is also planning to launch the New MPV, Chevrolet Enjoy, which was also unveiled along with Chevrolet Sail at the Indian Auto Expo 2012. I shared that Magnificent Tata Safari Storme all Set to Descent.
