Nice pictures Raj, Looks there were a lot of exciting cars to drool and less public rush. Did you sat in the Figo and did other members (Renegade etc) joined you? Congratulation for your "Karma" joining another popular automotive event. Also, Let amaan know the correct cost of tickets.
Hey Raj! Can you please let me know what was the price of the entry tickets? I need to know ASAP! Please help! Did anyone else visit it too? If yes then please please let me know the cost of the tickets. Thanks.
Okay guys, here i go again. I visited the Auto Mall at around 1.30 p.m, and was there for 3 and a 1/2 hours. Tickets cost me Rs.50 as i was carrying my ID card. There were loads of people when i reached, but the crowd wasn't too big to be irritating. The entire event was very well planned, and i could see a lot of bouncers present to ward off any over-enthusiastic fans.Welcoming us were the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG and CLS63 AMG, of which the SL63 AMG looked absolutely stunning. Moving further, the entire hall was very well organised and sorted. Many major brands were present, like Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Rolls-Royce, Maruti-Suzuki, Skoda, Hyundai, Tata, Fiat, Mahindra, Volkswagen, Nissan, Volvo, Yamaha, Honda, Toyota and many more. Some major brands like Audi, Porsche, Mitsubishi and Jaguar decided to give it a miss. I got the opportunity to get inside many premium cars, and was also delighted to see the Honda Fireblade and the Kawasaki Ninja 250R. Overall, the event was total fun. I had a very good time. The biggest surprise for me was the Chevrolet Beat, as it turned out to be more spacious than i expected it to be, and the biggest disappointment was the VW Polo. More on that later. I am attaching the first set of pictures. More to come later. Please don't mind the abundance of pictures guys. Hope you all like my pictures and coverage of the event.
Haha yeah the RR Phantom is a monster! The bonnet is long enough to sleep on! The car is so wide and so big, if you drive it in Mumbai, it will be destroyed for sure.
Guys, this may be off-topic, but this is something i have to say. Volkswagen have disappointed me. After having a look at the Polo, i must say that it is not a very good product overall. Being a premium hatch, it should offer oodles of space inside, which it does not. The base variant is not well-equipped and is overpriced. Quality too is not really that big a step up (The Ford Figo has similar quality interiors) and the cabin is cramped. Not worth a buy for me. They are just commanding such a high price only for the VW badge. I would pick the i20 or the Figo anyday over this.
Thanks for the pictures Amaan. You could share about experience with Polo in this thread. I still can not notice any such huge crowd like other Auto Shows have, maybe because it all happened in sudden, resulting in less time for advertising.
