All for Safety EVERYONE HAS BEEN TALKING about safety, from personal hygiene to social distancing, since the outbreak of the pandemic. Needless to say, road safety is as important as the aforementioned aspects. It was with this in view that Mahindra launched a road safety programme with the most affordable and the safest car in the country, the XUV300. We did a short video for them to promote their campaign. The other manufacturer that has been promoting road safety for quite some time is Hyundai with the “Be the Better Guy” campaign. The traffic conditions in the country are moving from bad to worse by the day. In fact, after the lockdown people seem to be driving in the wrong direction on a divided road, taking undue advantage of the sparse traffic.…

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…

the return of the king

HAIL TO THE KING, WE MAY soon see a new name at the top of the list of desirables for those seeking modern technology in terms of connectivity, safety, autonomy, and efficiency ― those who actually have the money to put where their mouth is. The new Mercedes S-Class isn’t about design; the exterior is simply a form that holds all that it needs to contain in the most crash-friendly way possible. Thus, once past the laser headlights, Digital Light projectors, large grille with enough sensors to fly it to the moon given more thrust, and bulbous proportions, wrapped up in OLED tail-clusters not short of theatrics, is where the real essence of the car becomes clearer. It’s not even about the powertrains. Yes, many, around the world, will speak of…

odisha odyssey: south

ROAD TRIPS OFTEN START with little to no ceremony. Just pack your bags and head off into the unknown. This one is a little different though. We started off with a bang, and a big one too. At a special event held by the Government of Odisha, and under the auspices of Odisha Tourism we joined in with a celebratory rally featuring the resident superbikers of Bhubaneshwar on World Tourism Day – that’s the 27th of September for the uninitiated. This rally saw us go for a journey from the state’s capital to the spectacular Dhauli Shanti Stupa some 30-odd kilometres away. There, we witnessed some major announcements from the government of Odisha, and particularly its tourism department, which opened their proverbial doors to let road-trippers like us in with…
