Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara
Maruti Suzuki takes a crack at the midsize SUV segment with the Grand Vitara, a sister model of the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder. It is feature-laden, gets strong hybrid tech and AWD. Looks like Maruti has given its all.

On India’s 75th year of Independence, we take a close look at the cars, bikes, regulations and leaders who have influenced and shaped the way our auto industry looks today.

Maruti Suzuki Brezza
Maruti Suzuki went all out by offering the new Brezza with quite a bit of kit. We have driven it to find out how much of a difference the tech makes.

The first Mercedes on a born-electric platform is unconventional and radical – and is India bound later this year. With its end-to-end (hyper)screen, the EQS is sure to geek out all nerds.
The EQB will be the first seven-seater EV in our country, and being a family-focused SUV, it's all set to take the luxury EV market by storm.
The BMW i4 has the bragging rights of being the EV with the longest range in India. We drive the 3 Series-sized, 5 Series-priced sedan to find out.
Bajaj Pulsar N160
A brand new engine and platform can transform any bike. Is that the case with the Pulsar N160 too?
This is TVS’ first attempt at making a relaxed, modern retro motorcycle. However, the million dollar question is – has it succeeded?
Sebastian Vettel's legacy
