    The February 2022 issue of Autocar India features exclusive drives of the Porsche Taycan, the Audi RS e-tron GT, and India’s first officially imported McLaren 720S Spider. We also drive the Kia Carens, and there’s a special feature: driving an EV (an e-tron, no less) into the Gir Forest National Park. Autocar India and OLX Autos hosted one-of-its-kind Pre-Owned Car Awards, picking the best buys from the used car market. Here’s what else you can expect from our February issue:

    Porsche Taycan

    We drive Porsche’s first EV, the Taycan, albeit in rear-wheel drive form. We were intrigued to find out if it can electrify us, and, more importantly, if it’s a true-blue Porsche underneath.

    The e-tron GT is many things. But the over 600hp RS version of Audi’s EV coupe leaves you at a loss for words. Find out more about it in our exclusive first drive in this month's issue.

    Audi in Gir

    Another day, another electric Audi. This time around, it is the e-tron, and we take it somewhere special – into the Gir forest. As wild as it may sound, it actually was as silent as the big cat waiting for its prey.

    McLaren 720S Spider

    We exclusively drove the first, officially imported example of the McLaren 720S Spider in India. Find out just how good it is in our February issue.

    CoASTT racetrack

    We awarded the best hatchbacks, sedans and SUVs in the second-hand market, in association with OLX Autos. Find out more about it in this month’s issue.
