Mercedes-AMG F1 team
Love is in the air for the guys and gals in Mercedes-AMG F1 team. They are clearly enjoying success and having some fun. Today, the team showcased the 2020 W11 race car and the duo of Hamilton and Bottas seem pretty kicked about it! It sports a shade of red at the top and Vettel thinks the it’s a bit more red than last year.

Promotions by other car makers
If you do not have a date on this special day, some carmakers have an idea for you: take your car on a date and shower it with some TLC or just take a road trip to be one with your car! On a different note, it has become a recent trend for many car manufacturers to promote their cars on special days including Republic Day, Independence Day, Dussera and the most important of all – Deepavali – one of the biggest festivals in India. This is the time you get some great offers and car sales really take off.
This Valentine’s Day, many manufacturers are either giving some service discounts or trying to promote their vehicles through some quirky messages. Here are a few of them:
If you are a Hyundai customer in India, it is a good time to get your car shown to the service chaps. Until February 18, that is. You get complementary dry wash, up to 30 per cent discount if you opt to ‘beautify’ your car’s interiors, exteriors and underbody. It’s not all. You also get up to 25 per cent discount on labour charges and if you happen to use Hyundai Care App, more discounts for you. Refer a friend and you get additional discounts. Don’t know about love, but It is certainly raining discounts at Hyundai service centres across the country.
Hyundai is known for its VFM products and services
No, it is not raining discounts here. Instead, Maruti Suzuki is asking you to love Mother Nature. How, you ask? The company has launched the WagonR fitted with a BS6 compliant CNG kit, starting at Rs 5.25 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). This follows after the largest carmaker in the country announced its ‘Mission Green Million’ at the Auto Expo 2020, with an aim to sell 1 million green vehicles in the next couple of years. So, if you care about all things green and are looking to buy a budget hatch with a claimed fuel efficiency of 32.52km/kg, buy yourself a WagonR CNG.
The CNG version of the WagonR is available in two variants
Love taking road trips? Ford India is urging you to take one, with your loved one on this special day. It is a long weekend after all! That’s all Folks!
