The newly launched Mercedes-Benz AMG SLC 43 priced at Rs 77.5 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) is a replacement to the older SLK 55 AMG. The event marks the introduction of the first ever ‘43’ nomenclature for the Indian market. Loaded with modern style upgrades and a new engine under the hood, the roadster is all geared up to compete with the likes of BMW Z4 and the upcoming Porsche 718 Boxster.
The Creta has been a great success story for the Hyundai brand in India. Not only does it sell in big numbers, but it has made Hyundai successful at a price point, where even the might of Maruti has struggled (getting stingy Indians to spend upwards of Rs 15 lakh on what is basically a budget brand). With so many strong players in our market to compete with, you have to hand it to Hyundai for doing its research and, more often than not, delivering a really attractive product which the buyers really want.
