    Maruti Suzuki’s SUV onslaught with the Baleno Cross and Grand Vitara headlines Autocar India’s August 2022 issue. This month, we also celebrate 75 years of Indian Independence with 43 pages of unmissable special features. We have first drives of the brand new Brezza, the BMW i4 and Audi A8. Plus, there’s drives of the Suzuki Jimny, the Mercedes-Benz EQS and the EQB. We’ve also reviewed the new Bajaj Pulsar 160 and TVS Ronin. Flip to our motorsport pages for a look-back on the career of racing champ Sebastien Vettel, who recently announced his retirement.

    Maruti Suzuki Baleno Cross

    Maruti Suzuki is upping its SUV game and is all set to have four SUVs in its line-up. The Baleno Cross is one of them and will be revealed at Auto Expo in 2023.

    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.

    75 years of Indian motoring

    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.

    Suzuki Jimny

    The Jimny sure grabs a lot of attention on the road – even more than a supercar. Though its India launch is sometime away, we had the chance to experience it on our roads.

    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.

    Glanza vs Baleno vs Altroz vs i20

    In the market for a new premium hatchback? We pit the top four contenders in the country. But in a comfort and value-for-money-driven market, which hatch will win?

    Mercedes-Benz EQS

    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.

    Mercedes-Benz EQB

    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.

    BMW i4

    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?

    TVS Ronin

    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

    The four-time champion calls it quits after a 15-year long, illustrious career. We take a close look at his wins and how he has evolved.
