Jaipur-based Rajputana Customs has gained immense popularity due to the custom build offs and the unmatched treatment that they offer to motorcycles. Now, it is quite obvious that Harley Davidson is Rajputana Customs' favourite motorcycle as you will find multiple mod jobs around the name brand. One of them is the Jordaar Version 2 that is actually a Harley Davidson Iron 883 Sportster underneath. The first thing you will notice about this bike on taking the first look is the minimalistic bodywork. The slim fuel tank of the Jordaar will at first make you hard to believe that it is actually the bike's appetite.

The Range Rover Evoque has bought in a style statement in the luxury SUV territory and it surely wasn't a bad choice to drive it down during the chaotic Auto Expo 2018 days to and fro in the infamous Delhi/NCR traffic. The Land Rover and Range Rover line-ups haven't been so good looking until the arrival of the Evoque in its line up. The SUV received a facelift in the year 2016 and in 2017 the company replaced the 2.2L engine with a new 2.0L four-cylinder engine from the Jaguar Land Rover 'Ingenium' family.

The executive sedan territory in India is one of the slowest growing segments and probably the one with least number of members. Having said that, it is also one of the few car segments that have the most globally popular and most sold cars.

Chevrolet’s India exit also saw this as the Cruze sedan had been withdrawn in the country. Overall this sedan segment has seen a decline in growth by about 9.5 per cent and seen a sales of mere 9,594 units in the last 11 months of this ongoing financial year.
