Yup those names are common in EUROPE. Even FIAT uses such names for GRANDE PUNTO variants in the UK.

Every vendor has his own nomenclature. The suffix game started with the moniker GT (Grand Tourismo) used by the Italians. Ford devalued the term by putting the suffix on their high end models of run of the mill cars. There was a Ford Escort Gt with a 1300 engine in the 70's while at the same time you have a RS2000 as well. Maruti uses L for the base variant, progressing to V and then Z. The second character is X for petrol and D for diesel, i as the third letter stands for power steering. Hyundai used to have a range with the first letter changing with each range. With the i10 they have changed to names. Skoda use names - Ambiente, L&K etc. BMW as has bee pointed out have the 1st number for the series, with the next two indicating the engine size, with a D for diesel. Mercs. have A class, C-class, S class and so on.

In brief there is no hard and fast rule, but a specific manufacturer will follow some logic for quite along time.

Dont know which auto show you are refering to, but I also find them very poorly concieved and the knowledge of the presenter leaves a lot tobe desired. Camera is invariably focussed on the ugly mug of the presenter rather than the object under discussion.

 

The only show which I have found tobe above average is NDTV Car & Bike show. Here the knowledge, communication skills and style of commentator is good but the camera men are stupid as they rarely focus the camera on object and even if they do then camera angle is all wrong.

 

Overdrive CNBC keeps showing 'Shirin' (I hope her name is right) like a beauty queen. This show has the least content and too much of *****ic things.

 

Zee business auto show is the poorest in my openion.

To know the name and time...........etc ..etc refer to pg 1 of this thread..........ya i am also a regular viewer of NDTV car & bike show ......n the show called Raftar which comes on NDTV India is just a hindi version of it...n ya the camera person focuses more on its face rather than  on car or whatever....

..............the Zee Business auto show is "Wheelocity" its actually now becoming poorer ........with their new oversmart person which givs all the ans to autoproblems.......earlier it was nice with the previous anchor......' Shweta Bajaj'
