29th Oct 2018 2:10 pm

This month, we get behind the wheel of the all-new Hyundai Santro, which promises to bring back the magic of the original. To go with it, we’ve driven not one, not two, but three V8-engined super-SUVs – the new Mercedes-AMG G 63, new Porsche Cayenne Turbo and the Lamborghini Urus. There’s also a face-off between the facelifted Ford Aspire, the Honda Amaze, and the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, and drives of the Datsun Go and Go+ facelifts, the Bajaj Qute quadricycle, the next-gen BMW X5, and the MG HS SUV. Also part of this issue is our exhaustive spare parts survey. Read more news, reviews, and features in our November 2018 issue.


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?

Bajaj Qute

It’s an auto-rickshaw… it’s a car… no, it’s India’s first quadricycle. We drive the controversial Bajaj Qute that is finally set to go on sale.

New BMW X5

The new X5 is bigger, bolder and far better equipped, too. We take it for a spin to see just how much of a step-up it is.

Lamborghini Urus in India

How does Lamborghini’s 650hp super-SUV handle Indian roads? We find out.

Aspire facelift vs Amaze vs Dzire

The refreshed Ford Aspire comes with a new petrol-manual combo and a killer price tag. But in the company of the Maruti Suzuki Dzire and the Honda Amaze, is it the best in the segment? We find out.


A drive in MG’s SUV for international markets gives us a good idea of what its first offering for India could be like.

New Porsche Cayenne Turbo

In its third generation, the Cayenne remains all too familiar. We tell you why for the most part, that’s a good thing.
