car india awards

After another year of new launches, first drives and road tests, it is once again time to bring out the scorecards and declare winners. Recently, we had our jury drive the cars launched in the past year. After testing for a variety of parameters including performance, comfort and safety, the judges awarded points to each car. We have tallied all the points to declare clear winners in each category.

Automobile of the Year: Hyundai Santro

Automobile of the Year

In addition to bagging the top spot in its class, the little Santro has also earned itself the big one. Hyundai have marked evolution in the right direction by resurrecting a popular name in the Indian market. The Santro has made a comeback, bringing with it everything that we loved about its predecessor and a host of improvements as well. In terms of usability, performance, refinement, safety, and accessibility, the Santro has ticked off all the right boxes and placed itself right at the top.

Would gape at fast cars. Still does but now has a chance to drive some of them. Hates driving in traffic but makes up for with a spot of off-roading or the occasional track outing. Insta: @motoknight
