After the Auto Expo 2016, a whole bunch of new cars are gearing up to rev down the Indian roads and are prepared to be launched in the year 2016. From new features, equipment, new technology, new specifications, facelift versions and brand new entries and first-timers and so many more additions are being made to the existing automobile portfolio.
Let’s take a look at what June 2016 has in store for us and which cars are ready to rev in:
The new SUV model due to its close ties to the C-Class gets the GLC name but quintessentially this model is the latest generation of the GLK Class. This model was showcased at the Auto Expo 2016 and it’s all set to hit the roads in June 2016.
Mercedes-Benz as a brand always sets out to offer what people are looking for. This SUV has a streamlined body which makes it look smaller and sportier. The outer body is well- structured and also powerful looking. The car is very masculine looking which is not seen much in domestic models. This car presents the perfect blend of masculine looks and graceful shape which adds to its overall appeal. The exterior figure is solid and the front of the car comes with a radiator grille which has a chrome finishing that expands across the grille and promptly mounted on that is the grand Mercedes-Benz logo. The refined hood comes with subtle lines for a more eye-catching look and running across the bonnet are fine curvatures which enhance the looks further. Young car lovers are sure to be attracted to the prominent bearings in the wheel arches which are well-toned.
The entire setup exudes luxury and richness. Apart from the front façade, the rear too has been beefed up. The design projected structural disposition in such a manner that when the car is viewed from far, it look like a sleek sports car.
Lavish and comfortable interiors are present and nothing less should be offered for after all it is a Merc. The interior consists of wood furnished door sides, delicate seating, wide dashboard and an attractive centre console made from finely polished wood surface. The instrument cluster and the additional trimmings make the cabin feel like design and comfort has been infused. Head, shoulder and legroom is plentiful in both departments and the existence of headrest and armrest contribute to the experience. The lush leather upholstery adds to the augmented taste.
Largely, the vehicle is based on the C-Class and the inner dynamics too shares the same platform. It comes in both petrol and diesel versions. The petrol comes with a 2.0L engine which has a power of 211bhp and a torque of 350Nm and the diesel engine is fitted with a 2.0L engine in two different types. The first has a power of 170bhp and a torque of 400Nm and the second has a power of 204bhp and torque of 500Nm. The mileage for both would be approximately between 21 to 25kmpl.
The German automaker, Mercedes-Benz meets all safety standards across the world. This car comes with ABS, EBD, and adaptive brake systems which improves its braking quality.
Potential buyers get a bonus as this vehicle has only one variant. This version has it all from its exterior to interiors to safety and comfort.
This vehicle sure has a lot of advantages but all this comes at a hefty pricing of INR 45 lakhs to INR 50 lakhs. The abundance of features, exciting look and ultimate interiors are something to look out for. Tailor-made for those who have deep pockets and longing for the best. If you are looking for a vehicle that gets the job done, then please look out for the release dates.

In our country, the roads are crowded and peak hour traffic is too much, a small and compact car makes perfect sense. This car has the ability to fit anywhere and the light steering makes it easy to drive in tight, urban spaces. The fuel efficiency goes hand in hand with the car. The exteriors have also been amped up a little where in daytime LED running lamps are present. The ground clearance is also on the better side at 185mm. With the right extent of detailing to grab the attention of those looking for an entry-level hatchback, the Datsun Redi GO’s design isn’t ground-breaking and out-of-the-box like some competitors but it’s definitely set out to do the job.
The interiors are grey is colour which includes the dashboard, door pads, gear lever and seats. The infotainment arrangement has a provision for USB and AUX but none for Bluetooth. The boot space is limited and less in space when compared to competitors. The rear seats have ample head and legroom but shoulder room for three adults makes it a little cramped.
The Datsun Redi GO gets a 0.8L engine of 800cc that makes 54PS and a torque of72Nm. Principally, this car is not pitched for its performance but its price, frugality and fuel efficiency. If you are seeking driving thrills then this is not the right vehicle. It is suitable for pottering around from point A to B and back in a decent comfort setting.
