DNA Auto Expo at Mumbai - WHEELOCITY !

Ever since I arrived in India, I have been looking at various car models

From Prado to any comfortable/safe/affordable car here, would be a big dip in the driving experience.
On top of it, quality of roads, traffic discipline (lack of it, I mean!), cost of fuel (part of experience!)...

Some of the models look very promising - Mahindra's XUV500, Maruti Ertiga, etc. I was very keen to visit Wheelocity to check some of the models, under one roof.

Hyundai, Nissan, Honda, VW, Range Rover, etc were well represented.
Though Mahindra & Maruti were present through their dealers, neither XUV 500 nor Ertiga were displayed.
Thanks to the recent promos on newspapers, I was keen to check out Harley Davidson. They were not present either.
I thought I would get to see couple of experts, Ndtv's SVP or Hormazd Sorabjee
But bollywood actress was the celebrity to visit the venue !!

Like China, we should have auto expos at two of our major cities - Delhi & Mumbai. DNA's initiative may be a good beginning... but miles to go....!

PS : Late night I watched the review of Mini Cooper on Auto Car program (on CNBC ?). Small car, great brand, super driving, good material inside & son loves it !! That seem to be an abrupt end to my car-shopping, thankfully... !!! Shall keep you posted :)
