At the Auto Expo, India’s largest carmaker’s stall boasted of a lot of pomp and show. In addition to the just-unveiled Ciaz and S-Cross models, there were quite a few other jazzed-up versions of other existing models. A couple of them were the SX4 Sport and the Gypsy Escapade.
The BMW pavilion at the Expo showcased a car many of you might have seen in the Hollywood action film ‘Mission Impossible 4’. The BMW i8 is being touted as the “most progressive sports car of present time,” and it might well be. Or is it?
