Top 12 Automotive Bloggers in India You Must Follow Today

India has a huge automotive industry as well as a large number of auto enthusiasts. For many people, cars and bikes are just a means to cover their journeys but for automotive enthusiasts, it is a way of life. One of the categories of these enthusiasts is automotive bloggers. The automotive bloggers bridge the gap between the product and the buyers.

They provide us with all the details of the vehicle even before the launch with the help of spy shots, leaked interior images, leaked brochures. After the launch, they provide us with a detailed review of the car-its exterior, interior, performance and ride and handling. They make us aware of the latest happenings in the automobile industry i.e., the automobile news India and prepare us for the upcoming launches.

They make sure that while buying a new car, we know every detailing of it. The work they do takes a lot of effort and they make sure that they provide us with non-ambiguous content. But not all bloggers enjoy success, as automotive blogging is not that easy. After all, auto blogging requires perseverance, hard work, excellent writing skills, fluency in conveying one’s thoughts and after all a strong knowledge of automobiles.
