Recently launched, Skoda Octavia is the third generation model that been completely revamped both outside and inside. It has been said that this car has drawn inspiration from the Vision D concept.

Tata Nano CNG
The cheapest car of the world, Tata Motors Nano has been in the market for about four year with significant share.

Counted among the latest cars in India, Tata Nano CNG has already been found tested on different occasions sans camouflage that reveal most of the facelifted bits.
Land Rover Range Rover Sport
Range Rover Sport 2014 is considered to be a bit of Enigma. This car bears all the hallmarks of the badge and is provide to be the capable off roader.

This car wad unleashed at the 2013 New York Auto Show after spy shots of the car and two weeks of continuous teasers. This car retains the original features when it comes to exterior with the sportier overtones.
In terms of overall design, the Range Rover Sport retains the same features outside but obviously as we said before with the sportier overtones.The most interesting addition by Land Rover to the all-new model is the optional third-row seats that stay hidden under the boot floor and can accommodate two children.
