Before we start talking about the car, I have to say that Tata Motors is making some of the prettiest cars in the Indian market right now. This started with the Tiago, a hatchback, and their latest offering is a hatchback too. It is called the Tata Altroz and it is Tata’s competitor in the premium hatchback segment in India. It is expected to be launched in January 2020 and it has managed to create a hype around itself. We got to drive it for a couple of days in the beautiful city of Jaisalmer and we found out whether the hype is worth it. Watch Video: We have to start with what is going to be the biggest attraction for the Altroz which is the way it looks, and while yes looks are a subjective matter, to me it looks brilliant and there are a few reasons for that.

In 2017, Mercedes-Benz India took a gamble when it launched the current E-Class. It introduced a stretched version only and not the considerably cheaper standard-length model. Would the customers pay a premium on what was already an expensive luxury sedan just for some extra legroom? The gamble paid off. Customers flocked to the E-Class for its exceptional comfort and space, and this luxury sedan quickly became the best-selling car in its class. Armed with confidence off the E-Class’s success, Mercedes is taking the ‘longer is better’ route for its SUVs as well and is bringing a stretched version of the all-new GLE with a wheelbase that’s a whopping 80mm longer than the outgoing car. That translates to more space in the cabin and in particular, legroom. The extra length is immediately noticeable when you try to ease this 4.9 metre long SUV into a tight parking spot or when you try and negotiate the tight entry and exit ramps in … [Read more...] about Sunday drive by Hormazd Sorabjee: A look at the Mercedes-Benz India E-Class
BEIJING: China on Monday accused the US of trying to drive a wedge in ties with its all-weather ally Pakistan by repeatedly raising the debt clauses in the construction of the $60 billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). The CPEC is a planned network of roads, railways and energy projects linking China's resource-rich Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region with Pakistan's strategic Gwadar Port on the Arabian Sea. The project was launched in 2015 when Chinese President Xi Jinping visited Islamabad and it now envisages investment of over $60 billion in different infrastructure projects of development in Pakistan. "The US ignores the facts and continues to use the so-called debt issue to disrupt the CPEC development and drive a wedge between China and Pakistan. This is so malicious and ill-intentioned," Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a media briefing here while responding to US's top diplomat for South and Central Asia Alice Wells criticising the CPEC and China's … [Read more...] about US criticism of CPEC aimed at driving wedge between China-Pakistan: Chinese FM
