Normality Still Elusive NOT MUCH HAS HAPPENED IN the automobile world on account of the nationwide lockdown in the wake of the pandemic outbreak. Some of the manufacturers have started limping back to production activity after being allowed 30 per cent of their workforce. Allowing the manufacturers to start activity is like allowing a part of the chain to function. The rest is still under lockdown and it does not make sense if they cannot get the components to complete the cars. Even if they do manufacture cars, they cannot sell them because the dealerships are still under lockdown. Admittedly, we are not experts on economy or health, but what is happening during this lockdown is that it looks as if nobody knows the direction in which we are headed with the…

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. Therefore, we have a very focused readership and also give our advertisers better bang for their buck! Our editorial team is passionate about cars. They live, drink, eat and breathe cars. This lends the crucial extra touch to their editorial efforts. Our editorial team is bound by a strict code of conduct. In an industry where foreign junkets and gifts are rampant in order to win over editorial staff, we strive hard to maintain our editorial integrity and balance. Our emphasis is on bringing out a quality, information-packed issue that does not rely on mere filling up of pages. We are not in competition…

new volvo s60 goes e lectrified-only

VOLVO’S POPULAR SPORT-luxury sedan, the S60, has changed. A lot. While the next-generation 2019 model has not yet arrived here in India, we may now safely expect this updated 2021 iteration to be introduced here. The new Volvo S60 is based on the SPA (Scalable Product Architecture) platform that also underpins the XC60 and the larger 90 series models and bears a new, more evolved design language, with smooth lines but sharp details; inheriting the Thor’s Hammer headlamps and sleek tail-lamp clusters. It also brings an updated interior with the signature large touchscreen-laden centre console, smooth design air-vents, and all the safety tech one may expect of the brand that’s synonymous with automotive safety. The big change is the advent of the B and T TwinEngine range replacing the older T (turbo-petrol)…

THE NEXT-GENERATION PORSCHE 911 Targa — Type 992 — has been revealed and three versions are on offer, including a manual.
