Poor auto journalists. I hope they stayed at some really nice 5-star plus resort, because they never get to stay in such places either.

I wonder how many ads HMIL had to pledge to get the most incredulous figures.

Like someone here mentioned, how come people get to know about these rallys only after the event is over and the 'results' are ready?

what is the message hyundai want to show with it. verna is a good car. we drive car for pleasure, luxury, speed and ofcourse average, but not this kind of average.

i think even hybrid cars wont perform like this !

its not what happened to one of the unit but what matters is what it actually delivers to regular runners... I admire you sharing the 'NEWS' with others though...

Its not uncommon for diesel cars to give 40kmpl in mileage rallys.
