From the fanciest cars to the snazziest bikes, this Auto Expo has plenty of stuff for auto lovers. We look around and bring you some of the hot wheels at the hot show in town affordable Beauties.
If all the glitz and glamour at the ongoing Auto Expo is giving you the jitters, hold on. There is a fleet of affordable wheels too, which is set to hit the market soon.
While exploring the upcoming automobiles at the show, don’t forget to check out soon-to-be-launched beauties such as Ford EcoSport, Maruti Ertiga, among others. Apart from cars, there are two-wheelers such as Yamaha YZF-R1, Piaggio Vespa, Triumph Tiger Xo and many more.
Not Just Auto
The Expo is buzzing with a lot of activities this year. There are interesting games and quizzes organised by auto magazines, merchandise and gifts are being doled out by car companies, and glossy calendars are given as takeaway for car fans.
That’s not all. Live band and dance performances are also on at some of the halls. Not to miss: The original T20 cup is on display at the Hyundai pavilion.
Insufficient sign boards, poor management of crowd and insufficient facilities for visitors, are some of the problems plaguing the Auto Expo this year.
Inefficient information desks are making life difficult for car lovers, who often have to jump pavilions to reach the halls. To top it all, there are only a handful of restrooms to help visitors relieve themselves in the chilly weather.
This year, the Expo is flooded with over 15 concept cars and bikes. Concept automobiles are prototypes that showcase an innovative concept, a new style or technology.
Almost all big names including BMW, Renault, Jaguar, Tata, Chevrolet, Maruti Suzuki and Volkswagen have put their concept cars on display.
The rate ‘car’d:
Ford Ecosport Rs 7-10 lakh*
Mini Cooper Rs 25-29 lakh*
Renault Duster Rs 7-10 lakh*
AMG Roadster Rs 2.4 cr*
