Diwali Fiesta – New cars
Our Indian auto-industry enjoys one of the best festive season on the eve of Diwali with a plethora of new launches, practically one everyday in the last two weeks! Well it is less surprising, since Diwali means new products for both producers and consumers.
Ever since the acquisition of the SsangYong by Mahindra, the next generation updated Rexton SUV was expected. This next generation Rexton is certainly, more contemporary and modern. It is offered in both manual and auto variants with a 2.7 litre diesel drivetrain under the hood. It is priced very attractively between 18-20 lakh mark to tense-up the bestseller Toyota Fortuner and the Chevy Captiva. The new Safari Storme was shown at the Delhi Auto expo last January and is finally here. It is much improved in all terms and refinement levels are exemplary comparing the old Safari. Styling is a bit Land Roverish, but the logic of the company not to mess up the design cult which many loves is partly justified.

The brand new cars like the Nissan Evalia, Mahindra Quanto, Renault Scala, Toyota Camry and the Mercedes B-class landed far ahead of Diwali, but the one that enters the market just days before Diwali is the new Chevrolet Sail U-VA. There is no plenty to say about its design and styling, it is a good rival to the Swift nonetheless. It is powered by the 1.3 litre diesel engine, co-engineered with Fiat. Pricing is satisfactory, though not exciting.
