The April 2018 issue features two juicy exclusives! We have driven the most-awaited Ford in a long time, the Freestyle. In addition, we’ve also got our hands on the new Mini Countryman (which is due for launch later in 2018), the Ferrari Portofino and the Mercedes-Benz S450. Plus, there’s an extensive guide to all the hot new cars that were on display at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, and a comparo starring four Maruti Suzukis.

Ford Freestyle

Ford is ready with its new cross-hatchback, the Figo-based Freestyle. A mere cosmetic job or is it something more substantial?

Mini Countryman

The new Countryman SUV has a difficult job to do. To succeed, it has to be more SUV and more Mini, both at the same time.

Ferrari Portofino

The Portofino replaces the California T as the entry point to Ferrari’s range. We’re hungry for more after a first taste of the new 600hp prancing horse, in Italy.

Mercedes-Benz S 450

While not as advanced as its straight-six diesel counterpart, this V6 petrol motor is well-suited to the S-Class.

Maruti Heartect cars comparo

The Swift always had a very specific job in the Maruti range, but now with three siblings that do much the same, we try to find out why you’d still want one.

2018 Geneva motor show review

Apart from the usual bevy of jaw-dropping supercars, the 2018 Geneva motor show established the fact that every carmaker has a vision for an electrified future.

Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0

How much of an evolution is the third generation of the R15, really? We find out after a few fast laps.

Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500X

Can Royal Enfield’s highway hauler make for a credible city slicker, too? We take it for a quick spin – through the city, of course – to find out.

Bajaj Avenger Street 180

The newest Avenger on the block earns its spot as the most affordable cruiser in India. Time to take it out to see what it’s got.
