German Soul, Indian Avatar
WHAT IS IT?
Volkswagen’s made-in-India and first MADE-FOR-INDIA compact sedan. It is based on the Volkswagen Polo hatchback and is powered by the same 1.2-litre petrol engine as well. With the launch of a tailor-made vehicle for India, Volkswagen is aggressively moving forward in the Indian automotive market.
HOW DOES IT LOOK?
Even though the car has been designed for India, it was designed at Volkswagen’s headquarters in Germany. At the first glance, it might remind you of the Polo but it’s the rear where all the prominent changes are. It has a very inoffensive rear design with a boxy-looking boot, squarish- tail lamps and a refreshed bumper as well. To put it simply, Volkswagen has neatly integrated the boot and the Ameo doesn’t look disproportionate from any angle.

IN-GAME VEHICLES WE WISH WERE REAL
Videogames never fail to transport us to a world that is far beyond our reach, yet controllable by the tips of our fingers (quite literally). While open-world games offer a vast, new lifestyle to explore, they also give us a taste of some unique vehicles. Well, calling them vehicles would be an understatement as these perform so many more tasks than just commute, but they’re some uber-cool pieces of machinery nevertheless. That said, here are some of the coolest in-game vehicles that we would love to test-ride!
BEST VIDEO GAME FRANCHISES OVER THE YEARS
Ever since gaming has reached the digital age, there have spawned numerous titles and franchises across the globe.

These also led to the rise of multiple franchises, who have since gone on to become multibillion-dollar industries in themselves. Following is a list of such video game franchises who have only grown bigger as the years have passed:
