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.

These are accentuated by LED projector headlamps and distinct lightning-shaped tail-lamps clusters connected by a bar across the hatch.
