A mega gathering of cars, bikes and other vehicles for your pleasure. Auto Expo Motor Show 2014 is here. All you car-fans, bike-lovers, in fact, all of you who love anything with an engine that goes roar, this is for you. This is going to be huge. Spread over 64000 meters of space, the expo is going to a launch pad for some of the newest and latest models for the Indian customer. Everyone loves a new car. As the Indian automobile market has grown, so has the Auto Expo. Entering its 12th year, with as many as 75 passenger cars, motorbikes, commercial vehicles and utility vehicles will be showcased at this grand event. The world’s biggest car makers are here to make you drool and dream.
Sometimes people wonder why we all go crazy about cars and two-wheelers. There are many reasons for that passion. Every car or two wheeler is a portal for personal freedom. As the world moves forward, we have gone faster, ridden harder and explored more. All of this started with the car. Music has been written about cars, movies have been based on them, lives have changed because of them. The Auto Expo 2014 is a gathering of such vehicles. Get ready for an exhibition of speed, noise and beauty.
As little kids, we all used to get our dads and mums to take us on drives and rides. Everyone knows that before the days of super fast internet, we used to pore over car magazines to figure out the new launches. The knowledge was sought and absorbed. This is a chance for you to go back to that feeling. The Auto Expo 2014 is a place where one can be a child yet again. Cars aren’t things anymore, they have personality, character and foibles. This makes them human-like, or rather nearly human. As children, we would all talk about the best cars we knew of. Pitched arguments would take place, regarding whether a BMW was better than a Mercedes Benz, or whether a Ferrari was faster than a Lamborghini. And just forget about bikes and scooters. Every boy had their favorite. Debates would rage about whether a Royal Enfield is better than Yezdi or a Rajdoot, or even whether a Honda is better than a Yamaha. I guess the main reason we were so fascinated with these vehicles was because they represented freedom, the open road, the wanderlust that we all felt and that feeling has remained quite the same. This year, at the Auto Expo 2014, you get to feel that again. With many new cars and bikes being launched, you will be spoilt for choice. Of course, you might be thinking “I don’t need a car or a bike. I use public transport, why should I check this out?” I will tell you why. Not everyone can afford a Picasso, a Monet, a Da Vinci painting etc., but that doesn’t stop people from admiring a work of art. That’s what some vehicles are, works of art, passion, skill and engineering.
There are quite a few cool things which will be taking place at this expo. Safety drills will be taught, stunt driving will be showcased (not to be tried at home, because if your car is in your home, well that’s already one stunt too many), vehicle simulators will be present and you can also get a ride in an electric car or two.
Now let’s talk about the expo. This time it is being at held at the India Expo Mart in Greater Noida. With a quick and easy approach from the Greater Noida Expressway, you can make the journey there in comfort. Since it is being held in February, the weather will be pleasant. The harsh part of winter will have already passed. And as spring arrives, like the new harvest, we will get new cars and two-wheelers. There are many automobile manufacturers who will present their new wares to the public. Hyundai has said that the Grand i10 sedan will be launched at the expo alongwith another car. A SUV perhaps, a new look Santa Fe. As heard on the grapevine i.e.
Toyota will be giving us a glimpse into what they will be launching or might be launching. Maybe a Corolla, who knows. The small car market will be getting the all new Nissan Datsun Go and also from Nissan, there might be a concept car being showcased as well, the i2. Tata Motors might be bringing a new small car to the market, that’s just whispers on the wind. One of the biggies from the world of automobiles, BMW will be showing us the i8 hybrid concept. A thing of beauty with a look towards the future. They will also be showing us the 3 series variant, the 3-GT, bringing a touch of the autobahn to our roads. As for Mercedes Benz, we will be treated to an awesome sight of the new CLA 45 AMG. A beast of a car, with a flared body work and an engine note like the God of Thunder gargling. These are just a few of the vehicles which you might see at the Auto Expo 2014.
The Auto Expo 2014 isn’t just an exhibition, it’s a celebration of speed and noise. It’s a gathering of people for whom the car and the bike are not just things but things of beauty and freedom. The world of automobiles awaits you. Be there at the Auto Expo 2014.
