    The comparison between the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, the Kia Seltos and the Hyundai Creta headlines the October issue of Autocar India. We have driven the Maserati MC20, and taken a close look at the Ferrari Purosangue and Tata Tiago EV. Then there are first drives of the Mahindra XUV400 and Hyundai Venue N Line. To round it off, we’ve compared India's best electric scooters – Bajaj Chetak, TVS iQube, Ola S1 Pro and Ather 450X – and have a showdown between the Kawasaki Versys 650 and Triumph Tiger Sport 660. We have also documented our ride to Manthang on the Royal Enfield Himalayan and have a Motorsport feature on Grand Prix of Bharat.

    Grand Vitara hybrid vs Seltos diesel vs Creta petrol

    Maruti Suzuki recently launched the Grand Vitara strong hybrid, and we pit it against the Kia Seltos diesel and Hyundai Creta petrol. So, is hybrid the new diesel? And does it make financial sense to buy it over the latter?

    Maserati MC20

    Maserati is back in the supercar game with the MC20. We experience it around the Sepang circuit in Malaysia and come back impressed.

    Ferrari Purosangue

    Ferrari's latest 'thoroughbred' is an SUV, although the Italian manufacturer begs to differ. We've taken a look at it, know it's headed here next year and can't wait to drive it.

    Bajaj Chetak vs TVS iQube vs Ola S1 Pro vs Ather 450X

    Choosing between the top Indian electric two-wheelers can be tough, so we went ahead and tested a bunch of them.

    Mahindra XUV400

    The XUV400 is Mahindra's first shot at the EV SUV segment and has the Tata Nexon EV in its sights.

    Tata Tiago EV

    Tata's Tiago EV hatchback is the only electric car currently on sale to be priced under Rs 10 lakh. We take a closer look.

    Hyundai Venue N Line

    Felt the Venue facelift wasn't spicy enough? Hyundai's here with the Venue N Line, which gets a set of sporty upgrades to set your heart racing.

    Mahindra Scorpio N vs XUV700

    The Scorpio N and XUV700 have similar features and engine options, and the prices of a few variants overlap too. Should you go for the burly Scorpio N or the urbane XUV700?

    Mahindra Scorpio N vs Scorpio Classic

    This is a classic case of sibling rivalry, but is the Scorpio N better than the original Scorpio Classic? We find out which is the better pick.

    Triumph Tiger Sport vs Kawasaki Versys

    We pit the Triumph Tiger Sport and Kawasaki Versys – two of the most appealing middleweight ADVs – against each other. Read our issue to find out who wins, the Brits or the Japs.

    MotoGP in India

    The pinnacle of bike racing is finally coming to India next year. Called the Grand Prix of Bharat, it will be held at the Buddh International Circuit.
