Auto Expo 2014.. Click on the image above for the complete coverage

So swell is the Indian craze for automobiles, the exhibition this year was hosted at two places. The good ol’ Pragati Maidan campus hosted the components whereas all the meat was next door at Greater Noida’s expo mart.

Being good 30+ kms away from the typical NCR didn’t deter the crowd from coming in hordes. What disappointed was the usual chaos and mis management when it comes to buying tickets, entry, traffic management etc. What delighted was the cause of all this – the fabulous mean machines on display!

BMW I series, DC & Renault (specially their concept SUV) stole the show. Honda and Tata were surprising us pleasantly as well. The latter with it’s cool concept designs did make a big impression (and more so when you know it’s an Indian car maker). Jaguar and Landrover being Tata’s stable helped add glamour.

Volkswagen and Maruti Suzuki disappointed. No new cars for the former this year and for the country leader – Maruti didn’t have much to display or launch – the only 2 new cars were the SX4 hatch back (nothing new here as it was already retailing in Europe for many years) and Celerio –  well a cross of Alto & A-Star – disappointing. Ah we’re passing judgments – not good. Presenting the Expo coverage for your eyes & judgment only :-) . Previous galleries -
