Ambassador Car

Ambassador was the first car to be manufactured in India and has been plying on Indian roads since 1948. Its dependability, spaciousness and comfort factor have made it the most preferred car for generations of Indians.

With the passage of time Ambassador has upgraded itself and now comes loaded with latest technological features. Its MPFI engine with 16-bit ECU ensures easy cold start. Improved suspension, smoother gears, ergonomically designed plush seats, wider tyres, power steering and ample boot space add to driving pleasure.

Ambassador is available in petrol, diesel and CNG/LNG options
