Chevy Impala



RELATED NEWS
The Chevrolet Impala was an iconic car not just abroad but in India as well. It gained popularity at a time when the hot rods and muscle cars were becoming a culture in their own.



Hindustan Ambassador

The Ambassador was the longest running production car in the country from 1958 to 2014 with very few changes or improvements made to the car over its lifetime. It was a fairly spacious car, thanks to the semi-monocoque design, and rivalled the likes of the Premier Padmini and Standard 10.



Standard 2000

The Standard 2000 was a luxury car that ran on Indian streets from 1985 to 1988 and was based on the Rover SD1. The India variant featured a higher ground clearance, but never met quality expectations or price expectations in the Indian market.



Contessa Classic

Manufactured by Hindustan Motors, the Contessa was based on the Vauxhall VX Series and first introduced in 1983. The Contessa was one of the few luxury cars available in the Indian market alongside the Standard 2000 and became a favourite of government officials.



Mahindra MM540

Mahindra and Mahindra first started assembly of its larger MUV under the licence of Willys Jeep manufacturing the Jeep CJ3. A direct descendant of the CJ3's design is the Mahindra Thar that is still in production today.



Maruti 800

The Maruti 800 began its life in 1983 and soon went on to become the bestselling car, a title that stuck until 2004. The Maruti Suzuki still remains the second-longest production car in India after the Hindustan Ambassador.



Maruti Gypsy

Maruti Gypsy was introduced in December 1985. It was never really popular with general consumers, but extremely so with law enforcement. Originally available with only a soft-top, a hard top was made available later on. It also went on to replace the Premier Padmini at rally events.



Daewoo Cielo

The Cielo was the second generation Le Mans built by Daewoo motors from 1994 to 1997. It was mechanically identical to the Le Mans and was only differentiated by styling. The car was based on the Open Kadett E and was underpinned by the T-Car platform.



Daewoo Matiz

The Daewoo Matiz was first introduced in 1998 and ran for four years straight. The designed was signed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, an automobile designer who worked on a range including Aston Martin's DB4 GT Bertone Jet and the Bugatti EB 118.



Tata Safari

The Tata Safari is classified as a mid-sized SUV and was initially launched in 1998. The Safari was built around the Peugeot XD88 turbo-diesel that made 87 PS of power and mated to a 5-speed transmission. It is available in a front-wheel-drive and an all-wheel-drive option.



Mitsubishi Lancer

The Mitsubishi Lancer had a fairly decent fan following in India with its long fluid lines. It was available in three engine options including a 1.8-litre turbocharged powertrain and mated to a choice of three transmission options as well.



Maruti Swift

The Maruti Swift has undergone several transformations since it first launched. This year, the hatchback received the Indian Car Of The Year Award.



Hyundai i20 Elite

The Hyundai Elite has been extremely popular ever since its launch in 2014. Available in a range of engine and transmission options, it still manages to garner attention wherever it goes.



Tata Harrier

The Tata Harrier has just launched and deliveries are expected to begin early next year. Built around the same platform as the Land Rover Discovery Sport, it features a Tata's new Kryotec 2-litre engine that produces 140 PS of power and 350 Nm of peak torque.

Tata Harrier looks great. The Rover SD1 was a great design. Gorgeous shape and terrific interior but was let down by shoddy quality. The door handles were from the disaster called Marina and everthing tended to start falling off. But non of that takes away the gorgeous stlying which was way ahead of it's time. In British police decals they cut fantastic sight on UK highways and motorways in 1980s.

Frankly hands up. India is heading to be a major auto industry power. Pakistan actually does not have a auto industry. They are just glorified assemblers that buy Japanese kits on franchize and then stamp badges on them. Auto sector could be great place for India/Pak to converge. It would be win win for both. I would actually invite Tata to just open a plant in Lahore or Faisalabad and parts could be transported from across Wagah border.

More than that is needed. A cheap Indian car for the masses needs to be assembled in Pakistan. Lahore would be ideal site as parts could be transported from Amritsar. The Pakistani consumer would benefit from cheap car and help to break the Suzuki assembly mafia. The fact is how can Pakistan claim to have a auto industry when it does not even have the feedstock like steel industry? Our idea of steel industry is people like Nawaz who go around tearing up old rail tracks or breaking ships as scrap, melting it and caling it 'steel industry'. One Indian steel mill produces more steel then all of Pakistan does over ten years.

Since India is right next door, it has the iron ore, coal, steel industry, electrical industry, plastics industry etc all these are fedstock for auto industry. Therefore I think it's time Pakistan enjoyed the benefits of scale and opened up auto sector on the Wagah border.

In 2015 I said the same to my manager regarding TCS who is from Chakwal and he laughed and said anything related to India will be burned down immediately irrespective of how benefit is for the country and employment of youth....

We are going for electric cars now. I belong to Automotive industry and i can assure you big overhaul is going on for quality. By 2030 you will see Indian Automotive industry as world class.
Chinese(MG Motor) also entering the market in 2019 as they already purchased Gujarat plant from GM.
