Mahindra KUV100 Review (G80 Petrol)

Mahindra KUV100 Review (G80 Petrol) Every new Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) motor product impresses me and it is in many ways a reflection of the country’s general rate of progress. However, to truly gauge such progress comparisons have to be made with the best in the business, which for small cars in general are the Japanese and now Korean manufacturers, with the Europeans gaining some lost ground as well. So how does the...

Datsun GO+ review: Honest car for the common man Introduction When the gold coloured Datsun GO+ with red registration plates was delivered to me to drive and review over the long Christmas weekend, I could not have foreseen that this review would read as it does now. Never judge a book by its cover and what was feared as a possible insipid drive, turned out to be this poor man’s Audi RS6 moment. Fitting then that a person I once...
