Most mass-market manufacturers (and all luxury car brands) are participating in this show. There might not be much for enthusiasts, but it's a good option for the regular joe as he can check out all the important brands under one roof. There's some eye candy to draw in the crowds as well.

A car show thread without any pics? Sheer injustice.

Few bhpians from Pune (599gto, asit.kulkarni93, YCJ and myself //M) were in Mumbai yesterday on a food trail so thought of spending a few hours at the Autocar Performance Show 2017 as well.

Here are a few clicks :

Just realized that, there was a GTI instead of the regular Polo! VW should have atleast kept a different shade of Polo GTI to attract prospects; I didn't even enter the stall assuming boring old cars!

Most likely a 7th Gen Honda Accord. Indeed horrendous.

Haha. I guess VW were going with the all white shade as even the Ameo Crest was in white. And anyways wouldn't have made a difference as the GTI is available in 4 colours which are already on the Polo.

Didn't actually get a chance to check out the chat counter. Though, I'd rather discuss cars here on the what car thread than at the counter.

Though the show had a little less on display than the previous iteration, it saw a lot of crowd in the evening as it was a weekend.

In a way it was quite good as the brands were allowing people to get a feel of their cars. So, you could go and sit in a brand new Hexa get a feel of the interiors, features, etc and walk a few steps to sit in an XUV500 to compare the two instead of visiting the showrooms separately. Similarly for a Creta and an Ecosport or other direct competitors.

Great report Omkar

The way this show had started around 2005 and built up for the next 3-4 iterations where we saw the participation of many mod houses and we could truly feel the air of competition between the participants. So yes the first few shows were definitely 'Performance Auto Shows'

But now, i think they should re title it as 'Auto Expo Mumbai'.
