    The Exter, Hyundai's latest SUV, is the headlining story of the August 2023 issue of Autocar India. We have a special feature that aims to find out how much changes over seven generations, by bringing two SLs – the Mercedes-AMG SL 55 and its ancestor 300 SL – together. The new off-roader on the block, the Maruti Jimny, is pitted against its core rival, the Mahindra Thar. Moving on to the bike section, the new Triumph Speed 400 undergoes two battles: against the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 and Classic 350 in one, and the KTM 390 in the other. This and more in the August 2023 issue of Autocar India.
