The Buyer's guide section of most magazines has the most errors and is rarely updated.

There are many more such errors in the Buyers guide !
Some model specific details haven't been updated from the last few years

In the previous edition of ACI, Maruti was showing a Dzire ZDi while advertising the new Dzire with 1.2 L K-series engine.

In topgear, there was a comparison between the CR-V and the Captiva...

And both cars were called 7 seaters... twice i think... whereas the CRV has only 5 seats..

Makes you wonder if the author of the article even bothered to test drive the vehicles!!

Of course they test them! they used it as their daily drives as a commuter vechicle and does what ever else they do best. and in the end they always have to write something good in its praise, or they will never get another car in the future from the car maker.

i was trying to ask this to experts here.

Did Ritz really caught up with indian customers.?

I have stopped believing any timing data from these magazines. I have seen variations inside the magazine. Like R15-Karizma maybe tested , and you have R15 data on the last pages. They dont tally.
