India has been waiting for its return, and the time has come. The all-new Hyundai Santro has a lot to live up to, and our drive tells you if it has what it takes to become king once again. There’s also a mighty face-off between three compact sedans – the Ford Aspire facelift, the Honda Amaze, and the Maruti Suzuki Dzire. Also part of this issue are reviews of the Datsun Go and Go+ facelifts, the new Mercedes-AMG G 63, the Bajaj Qute quadricycle and an extensively detailed spare parts story. Here are the highlights:
New Hyundai Santro
The car that started Hyundai India’s innings is back completely revamped. Can it rekindle the magic of the beloved original?
New Mercedes-AMG G 63
The iconic SUV from Affalterbach in a whole new avatar. But does it still retain its phenomenal desirability quotient?
