What Young Petrolheads in India Need and Deserve Before Everything Goes Electric

The Problem


So, I have been looking into the choices of cars we have in India but sadly can't seem to find one stock that seems to fit what youngsters with taste for performance need. A large demographic in India is between the age of 20 and 44. There is a guarantee this niche is bigger than what the automotive industry thinks. The sales volume might be low but the reputation gains would be very high. But give it a proper try unlike Fiat Punto Abarth or CBU VW Polo GTI (yes, Make in India)


Disclaimer: I value aesthetics alot and they are very subjective.


Let's dive right in!


What makes the driver happy



Let's Make it a little practical and price under check


Solutions that are simple and give user flexibility while delivering the essentials. .


The formula is simple = Good Performance + Awesome music system + Safe + Basic Amenities + Reliable


The Perfect Candidate


Hyundai has already made its shot with i20 N Line. My eyes are on Volkswagen Polo. With their new MQB A0 IN Platform, 1.5 liter (150PS) and 2 liter (190PS) powertrains a new VW Polo GTI should be possible. But hey, the invitation is open for all the manufacturers. I am hoping Tata and Mahindra can pull some trick in this segment too.


Feeling Lucky- The best case scenario would be something like the Toyota GR86 or Honda S2000 or Nissan 400Z or even a Mazda MX5.


Take the spot and earn the respect of all the Petrolheads.
