what makes us different

UNLIKE OTHER AUTOMOBILE magazines, Car India is devoted cent per cent to CARs, SUVs and MUVs. There are no bikes or commercial vehicles to be found in Car India.

THE NEW POLESTAR PRECEPT IS A CLEAR EXPRESSION OF INTENT AND PREVIEWS THE execution of innovative, new and more sustainable interior materials, the continued development of the digital user interface, and, basically, the essence of Polestar design.
