Best of 2015: Top car and SUV reviews
Through this year we have consistently brought you all the latest launches and drives, some of them exclusively even. From all-new offerings like the Renault Kwid and Hyundai Creta to evolutionary models like the new Honda Jazz and Hyundai i20 Active, we have covered them all. To give you a brief recap of the year that has gone by, here’s a list of the most popular reviews on our website in 2015.
Honda Jazz review
The first generation Jazz was a spacious and practical hatchback but wasn’t very successful with Honda having priced the car at a premium compared to the rest of the segment. The new Jazz is an all-new model built on the same platform as the older car but is clearly identifiable as a Jazz with its mono-volume shape. The new car has sharper styling with angular headlamps, a new design grille, sharper belt lines, 3D-effect tail-lamps and a fair bit of chrome garnish. Inside, the new car is as spacious as ever and gets features like touch-screen infotainment system and touch-sensitive climate control system. So does the new Jazz match up to its established rivals? We drove it to find out.
Maruti S-Cross review
Maruti’s entry into the crossover segment was with a model that felt more like a large hatchback than proper crossover. The styling, like with all other cars from the manufacturer, is conservative rather than bold while interior quality is unlike any other Maruti model till date in the country. Marketed as a ‘premium crossover’ rather than a SUV, the S-Cross has an all-new engine in its line-up, which is a Fiat- sourced 1.6-litre diesel motor alongside the tried and tested 1.3-litre diesel. So just how good is the new diesel crossover from Maruti ? Click here to read find out.
