Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Facelift Makes its Global Debut at GIIAS
Just as we had reported earlier, the facelifted Maruti Suzuki Ertiga has been unveiled at the ongoing Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) in Indonesia.

Assam HC Bans 140 Models of Cars Citing Lack of Safety Features
Here is a damming report for automakers in India from the state of Assam. The high court of the state has banned over 140 models of cars which don’t meet international safety standards. The ban affects almost all carmakers in India including some very popular models like the Honda Jazz, Hyundai i10, Tata Nano, Maruti Swift etc. Hearing a PIL on this matter, the High Court banned all vehicles weighing under 1500kgs and those which don’t pass international crash test norms.

The court has further asked the central government to disallow permissions for cars under the 1500kg mark unless they pass international crash tests. Next hearing of the case has been scheduled for 27th August. Car safety norms have always [...]

The SV Aventador Roadster comes with a dry weight of 1575kgs only – a full 50kg lighter than [...]
