1. Linea T-Jet Vs MJD
2. Renault Fluence petrol Vs diesel

Also guess some Porsche cars are priced higher for the petrol variants - Cayenne ??

I guess the price difference in more in petrol since the petrol car sold will be in Coupe form [3 door] and NOT the 5 door version and it's also super charged if I am not wrong.

Please check the specs for all the cars you mentioned.

Renault Fluence in India - Prices, Reviews & Photos - CarWale
Fiat Linea in India - Prices, Reviews & Photos - CarWale
Porsche Cayenne in India - Prices, Reviews & Photos - CarWale

Again, as you said, it could be because of the Coupe form.

Its strange the car wasn't on display! Would have definitely grabbed a lot of attention if it was.
As per the discussion as to why the petrol Evoque is much more costlier than the Diesel one, I must say that the Top end coupe version has many more features than the other 3. Plus, much better interior schemes. But after all, the biggest reason why it is priced higher is because of the coupe form. And, the engine has a lot more power too!

Got to DRIVE the evoque last weekend through a common friend who had bought it apparently one of the first few delivered across the country.

Giddy! Giddy! :P

The car has sheer presence, oodles of persona so that you just wanna stand and stare at it. Vic Beckham may not have requisite auto design degrees but she does know how to make men go weak simply with irresistible looks and attitude.

At the same time, I would highlight that this is one short car much shorter in height than I expected. I would not compare it to the X1 small, but we are talking about somewhere there.

Enter inside and you continue to be amazed. They have carried pretty much everything from the stable mate, Jaguar. All the theatrics are there, the bells and whistles, EVERYTHING. The 'rise & conquer' style gear lever makes me excited like a child even today.

The engine option is tad weaker than the Jag XF and is apparent from its lowly growl but is thirsty for power nonetheless. Steering is well weighted though some taller people like me will find the windscreen tad too slanted.

And the best of all, this is one car which makes real 'panoramic sunroof'. End to end stuff that you will fall in love the first time itself. There are so many cars trying to woo customers with this feature but this is one car that utilizes it for the best.

And now the bad thing - No Photos! I was well and truly smitten that I simply forgot...!

Hi all, I visited the Hello Evoque event in Delhi yesterday. Here's what I got to know:

1. Costs about 50L on road in Delhi for the PURE variant.

2. If you book now, expect delivery in May.

3. The Panoramic sun roof in AWESOME. I wonder how does the Q3 compare since it has a huge sun roof which can open as well.

4. The back seats left me disappointed. I felt a lack of under thigh support. The leg room isn't very impressive either. I hope I am not exaggerating by saying that my corolla altis feels more comfortable at the back (though suspension will likely make the difference on bad roads).

5. Some of the plastics felt out of the place. The seatbelts didn't feel very premium. Nor did many of the other plastics near the door.

6. None of the models come with a SATNAV system! This is ridiculous!

7. Dual view screen also doesn't make it to option's list.

8. News of CKD have been around in the papers. Though the salesman says nothing is to be expected soon. My guess is 2012 end.

8. Lastly, it has tremendous presence. It looks better than it does in pictures. Perhaps the only reason Q5 buyers might want to shell out an extra 10L for a car with lesser (i guess?) interior space.

Eagerly waiting to check the Q3 now.

does anyone have a quick comparison of the features between Pure, Dynamic and Prestige? The car is definitely a game changer and will put its owners into a new orbit altogether. Stupid question but, any idea "kitna deti hai"?

Do take a look at the spec. Sheets on the website and also I believe someone has posted it here somewhere?

I just don't understand what the Dynamic plus pack adds for about 4 lacs?

And about "kitna deti hai" considering its small size and the engine being a 2.2D unit I expect it to atleast give about 10 on a combined driving cycle?

But realistic figures only users will be able to give and that should be atleast few weeks from now.

Spotted a white one on the roads today. It looks surprisingly small in the flesh. Much smaller than the Q5 and just about CRV size. I'm surprised people world over are raving about it. Honestly, I was'nt impressed. I'd take an X5 at this price (top version) anyday.

OMG, what a looker! Killer looks. After a long long time we are seeing a car which looks ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. At a time when increasingly newer cars are getting uglier, Evoque provides a breath of fresh air. Heck, who cares about sapce! Sportiness and space do not go hand in hand. Ferrari is all about sportiness and we all know how much space it offers. This will do to premium SUV market what Swift did to hatches. And, it does look like Swift equivalent of SUV.

There is a long list of cars which are ridicuously expensive. Evoque is not the only one. At least it is a stunner. You and I may not be able to afford it but it matters very little to those who can. It is not a regular hatch or a budget-end sedan that one goes looking for finances to buy one. Once cars cross 50 lakh mark, it hardly matters whether it is 60 or 70 or 80 lakhs. The ones who buy these cars have crores stashed away in one form or the other, so it hardly matters to them. Regarding novelty wearing off, I don't think so. Fortuner is a stunner and it still sells like hot cakes. Evoque will continue to sell, too, like a Fortuner. Hummer flopped because it is is hardly a looker. Like a big brick with 4 wheels. Space is also immaterial because the ones who own Evoque generally also have at least 6 other cars of varying sizes/shapes. They do not need to cram up their Evoque like an airport shuttle-taxi Innova.

As far as I know, only the top-end Dynamic variant comes with the two-tone paint-scheme, i.e. the roof is of a contrast colour. It could be an optional extra though. I'm not too sure.
