It is extremely noteworthy to see various auto companies taking initiatives to hold events and conduct surveys to draw attention to road safety and educate and instill driving safety techniques in the minds of the general public.

Nissan Duster is here, err, we mean Nissan’s version of Renault Duster is here. To be launched in the coming weeks, new Nissan SUV is named Terrano. It will be offered in three engine options, the same one’s that are on offer on Duster, 1.6l petrol, and two tunes of 1.5l diesel. Rushlane was recently invited for the media drive of new Terrano, and here is what we think about the car after driving on the Udaipur – Kumbhalgarh Fort – Udaipur route.
Working for Rushlane not only gives us an opportunity to travel across the country, but also gives us access to test drive some of the best cars in the world today.

Not an outright sportscar, A4′s powerful sibling, S4 displays a high degree of sportiness and is well suited for everyday use. Priced at INR 49.39 lakh (ex-Mumbai), 2013 S4 is for you, if you wanted something more out of an A4, C Class or 3 Series. It is not as lethal as the M3 or the C63, which makes it a perfect upgrade from the less impressive entry level premium sedans.
Mercedes Benz India has already announced that the new A Class, will be launched on 30th May, 2013.
