The road tax varies from 2% to almost 20% depending upon the state.

Karnataka charges the highest percentage of tax.

GTO, Could you elaborate. I always thought local taxes and road taxes were same for both types . Could you explain for say,Delhi or Maharashtra?

If this was discussed previously, please direct to link. Thanks

Default Volvo XC 60 Spotted

Hey people just spotted the newly launched Volvo XC60 while returning home. I almost ignored it thinkin that it was a XC 90 but on closer inspection got to know it was the XC60.

Nice spotting buddy, this just might be the next BIG thing after the Fortuner if priced aggressively. Hm, not a fan of the color though. Its for the Figos and Beats.

One of very few Volvos I see me driving with a very wide grin, some what like this -

Good capture apoorv. Design is very much refreshing and new. I like the HL design, similar to an E class, its looks awesome. And the big grill with the chunky Volvo badge looks muscular and adds character to the car.

What are the price range?

Spot On man. It was KL registered. It was here because one of the guys in our area writes reviews on cars and all the newly launched vehicles give visits often.

Came across this interesting bit (see attached) while going through the XC60 page on Volvo India website.

They have indicated that the XC60 attracts a 60% rebate in insurance premium because of advanced on-board Safety Technologies. What is more interesting is that the comparison is with Audi Q5 and BMW X3, which are already known for excellent safety features
