It's not surprising why today The Automotive India’s official road test reviews are considered as a benchmark in the industry. These reviews are referred by thousands of experts, enthusiasts and new car buyers alike on regular basis. We take great pride in being an autonomous unbiased community and therefore strive to sustain the quality of every review before publishing it online. All our reviews are an outcome of thorough testing which is performed only by the qualified members of our team. The road testers are responsible to assess various parameters and test the vehicle based on internally predefined criteria in order to uphold our principles. Each review consists of star ratings alongside certain aspects of the vehicle. Here's how to interpret them:

    (96 – 100%): Exceptionally brilliant. Surpasses everything else.
  • ninestar.gif
    (90% - 95%): Outstanding and mostly competent in the specified area.
  • eightstar.gif
    (80% - 89%): Respectable enough. It’s capable in the area and serves the purpose well.
