The May 2021 issue of Autocar India is headlined by our exclusive story about Mahindra’s SUV strategy and its focus on EVs for the future. There are reviews of the Hyundai Alcazar prototype, the Mercedes-Benz GLA 200 petrol, and the BS6 Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220, along with a comparison between the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, the Bajaj Pulsar NS160 and the Hero Xtreme 160R in this issue. To go with these, there’s a comprehensive road test of the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine, and our drive experience in Arunachal Pradesh in a Mahindra Thar. We also took a crack at breaking lap records at three different racetracks in India, at the wheel of an Audi RS Q8. Along with this, we have plenty of other reviews, features and news stories you’ll enjoy reading. Here are the highlights:
