Car reviews for an internet-based publication are tricky. In this internet age, which is defined by how fast you can get your story up on the website, we believe in taking our time to bring out an honest opinion to all who look us up for information. Luckily, in this process, we have got more pats on the back than flak and it is heartening to see millions of car buyers and enthusiasts reading our content. So, because we are nearing the end of 2017, we thought it would be a great way to thank all our readers by making a top-10 list of the articles that received the most amount of love. Here it is.
1. Off-road day 2017: An Introduction
We had taken a bunch of cars for our annual Off-Road Day expedition which included the Jeep Compass, the Toyota Fortuner, the Volkswagen Tiguan, the Isuzu D-Max and the Tata Hexa. Of course, we had a blast putting all these cars through some unreal but scientific tests and it seems the joy was shared by all our readers as well. Find the complete story here.
2. Maruti Suzuki Dzire Review

4. Tata Tigor Review
Tata’s all-new Tiago-based sedan introduced a fresh approach to the then stagnant compact sedan segment.

8. Segment Shift: Indian car buyers now prefer premium
Being online, we can reach all the people across geographies, across strata and across languages. The best part is, we can analyse their behaviour to get a sneak peek into the future trends.
