India seems to have been pricked by the SUV-bug, especially with the automobile companies launching them in succession. Now, Nissan, the Japan-based automobile giant, has announced its plans of launching its latest premium sports utility vehicle (SUV), Murano, in India. With the latest revealing, the car-manufacturer intends to tap into the potential offered by the growing auto market of the country.

The name ‘Murano’ originates from the region of Venice, Italy which is known for hand blown glass production. The Murano was nominated for the North American Truck of the Year award for 2003 and even named the best premium mid-size SUV by Auto Pacific.

The latest SUV will come in direct competition with premium brands, like Mercedes-Benz M-Class, Toyota Prado, BMW X3 and Mitsubishi Montero. The best part of Murano is that it combines the glistening appearance of a coupe with the powerful engine of a sports-car. Color Ranges like Tinted Bronze, Merlot, Graphatie blue, Glacier pearl, Super Black, Graphite and brilliant Silver.

Mahindra Stalio


Indian mega manufacturer Mahindra is diving full bore into the motorcycle game. On the heels of the launch of their 2011 Mihindra Mojo, the company introduces the 2011 Mahindra Stallio, a low cost motorcycle with fuel economy and practicality at its core, but with a real focus on flare.

They are aimed straight at the heart of popular motorcycles on the streets of India including the TVS Apache 180 RTR, Bajaj Pulsar 180, Yamaha FZ16 and Hero Honda Karisma R.

The company's Sept. 30 launch of the new Stallio had Indian actor, producer, director Aamir Khan personally unveiling the sporty commuter, serving as the bike's ambassador, which is targeted at attracting India's rapidly expanding market of young executives and businessmen.

The Stallio is powered by a 110cc, 4-stroke, air-cooled single engine and is available in two versions; one boasting an electric start, cast allow wheels and a digital console; the other with a kick-starter and spoked wheels.

Multiple reflectors combined with powerful LED lighting front and rear enhance visibility, making the Stallio a safer night ride. In keeping with their mandate of being on the cusp of hip the 2011 Stallio is available in Derby Red, Colt Black, Equus Blue, Buckskin Yellow and Ranch Green.
