The Christmas bells have started ringing around the world. As the holiday week kicks off, we believe you too must also have your gift list prepared by now and we hope the legendary old man draped in the iconic red costume fulfills all your wishes. But we bet our very own portly, jolly, white-bearded man would not mind to include below a list of Red Beauties on Wheels in his Christmas wish list if there was one.
If ever there was a pageant for red beauties on Four Wheels, the Mercedes-Benz CLA would be the indisputably crowned Queen. This smallest yet premium sedan from the German Automakers Factory can burn other contenders on road with its looks alone left alone the uber interior. AMT is standard across all petrol and diesel variants of this luxury sedan. Price starts at Rs 31.72 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi) for standard variants. For top-spec variants, the price-tag is around Rs 36.99 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi).
As they say “ The King Must Follow The Queen.”. Second in our list of red beauties (or hunks for that matter) on wheels is the Ferrari 488 GTB. This coupe with its signature aerodynamic design has no second match when it comes to muscularity on wheels. Especially at this time of the year, the V8 revvings are music to the ear when the air is heavy and landscape has covered itself with a snow blanket. At full throttle, the 4.0-liter V8 promises 660 PS and 0-100 kmph acceleration in just 3 seconds. So by the time your road companions turnaround and want a second look at it, you would be long gone into the snowy oblivion. Good things come at a price, and this piece of Red Hot Wheels costs a handsome Rs 3.88 crore (ex-showroom New Delhi).
There is nothing sportier than red and the Skoda Superb Sportline is a superb example of it. The design right from the sharp front grille to the rectangular headlamps is tailor-made for a red carpet treatment. AMT is standard on this red devil. And the price-tag is also on a slightly higher end of the spectrum. But at first look and feel, we are sure its worth all the bucks for a New Year Christmas Gift. The standard variant carries a Rs 28.99 lakh price tag whereas the top-spec trim costs around Rs 31.49 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi).
If hunky could look great in Red, then you would have to give it up for one and only Jeep Compass. The teething grilles subsumed by the peach red fascia coupled with the matte black front bumpers renders awe unlike any. At full throttle, this beast can set the road on fire. The SUV is available both in petrol and diesel variants. The price starts as low as Rs 15.40 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi). Top-spec variant costs around Rs 22.90 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi).
Red is the new black when it comes to hatchbacks. A red Volkswagen Polo is not just once in a blue moon attention grabber but oozes style from all angles. Take it for a ride and see the magic unveil. Available both in petrol and diesel variants, an AMT option is also on offer with 1.2-litre TSI engine. With a price tag of Rs 9.40 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi) for the top-spec variant, the POLO in Red is a Christmas Bargain.
If driving is more than just another core and fits into your ‘passion’ bucket list, the Elantra in Red is your perfect Christmas date. Take this beauty with chiseled body lines and fine curves for a long ride as far as you want free of complains or exhaustion. Hyundai offers both petrol and diesel trims for Hyundai Elantra. AMT is optional. And the price tag is in the Rs 13.71 lakh-Rs 19.94 lakh range starting from standard to top-spec variants respectively.
The new Swift draped in a new design avatar looks stunning in red. Maruti Suzuki swift offers this red cherry in both petrol and diesel variants. AMT is also available as an option on both the trims. Price for the standard variant starts from Rs 4.99 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi) and goes up to Rs 8.76 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi).
Powered by an offbeat design, its the red costume that draws the spotlights on the Lexus NX unconventional yet engrossing looks. Sometimes red can tickle the quirky bones too and this crossover SUV does that more than a few times. The glossy red coupled with the signature and edgy styling oozes strong road presence. Furthermore, the Lexus badge ensures that you can go looking for Santa this Christmas to the North Pole without breaking a sweat. Lexus NX has introduced a hybrid powertrain variant for the Indian market. The standard variant carries a Rs 54.78 lakh (ex-showroom India).
The name says it all we guess. The Zenith of Japanese design, the GT-R ticks all the right boxes ranging from its funky yet aerodynamic front design to the iconic rear. Red is one color that can make Nissan GT-R fans and bystander weak on their knees. As far as variants go, the GT-R is available only in petrol engine mated to an automatic gearbox. The coupe carries a whopping Rs 2.12 crore (ex-showroom New Delhi) price tag.
Ever since its launch, the Ford Mustang has been India’s favorite muscle car. Variety is the key to life, but when it comes to owning this American icon, Indian’s prefer the red one among the six different color variants offered by the American automaker. At its heart, the two-door beast carries the 5.0-liter V8 mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox that channels power to the rear wheels. True to its iconic image, the Mustang carries a premium Rs 74.62 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi) price tag.
