TATA Hispano luxury buses : APSRTC starts using them


APSRTC has started using the new TATA Hispano inter-city luxury buses. The main reason for this is the lower cost of the bus, which is around Rs 50, a good Rs 25 lakh less than the likes of the Volvo B7R.

anonymous : does your choice of travel depends on the looks of the bus? or its ticket price / comfort / interiors etc?

sujith: performance..hmm.. the B7R is 290 bhp.. i guess the TATA Hispano is around 240-250bhp.. not bad i guess

The B7Rs redefined inter city travel.For me,bus travel means B7R.We have to see how do the new Hispano buses match up to the B7Rs in terms of comfort and the overall superiority.
The shape of the bus though does look wierd in this pic.

The tatas are upto the competition ,the bus has more legroom and its damn comfortable , it took 5 hours from vja to hyd, even b7r take the same time ... The cummins engine is no doubt smooth

I had chance of traveling by Tata Hipsano Bus , Pune-Dadar(MSRTC)
Ride was pretty smooth and comfortable , bus was doing around 100-105 KM/hr
but still it cannot be compared to Volvo ,
