Issue: 223  |  Autocar India: March 2018

The March 2018 issue features not one, not two, and not even three, but five exclusive drives! We drove BMW’s Auto Expo stars right out of the pavilion, and onto the road – the 6-series GT and the new X3 and M5. In addition, we’ve also got our hands on the facelifted Mercedes-Benz S-class and the bonkers Renault Zoe e-Sport concept. Plus, there’s an extensive guide to all that was on display at Auto Expo 2018, and a comparo starring the TVS Apache RR 310 and KTM RC390.

BMW 6-series Gran Turismo
Rather than stretch the 5-series to take on the long-wheelbase E-class, BMW thought it better to bring in an altogether new and bigger model. We drive it to see what it has to offer.

The X3 has lagged behind its rivals of late, but, as we found out, all that could change with this new, seriously more accomplished model.

M engineers say the chassis should always be ‘faster’ than the car. Have they succeeded with their latest 600hp four-door? We find out.

2018 Mercedes-Benz S-class
In addition to a host of cosmetic changes, the facelifted Mercedes flagship gets advanced driver aids and a brand-new BS-VI-compliant engine.

Renault Zoe e-Sport
The outrageous Zoe e-Sport concept is a showcase of Renault’s EV technology and gives the world a glimpse of what the future of the hot hatch could be.

Auto Expo 2018 review
Even with several high-profile names missing from the show, Auto Expo 2018 had plenty of new cars and bikes and a bunch of exciting concepts. Here’s the most extensive guide to all that was on display at the show.

TVS Apache RR 310 vs KTM RC390
In this battle of small sport bikes, TVS’ latest faired weapon takes on the king of the hill – the rapid KTM RC390. Which one will come out on top?

Ducati Panigale V4 S
Riding a V4-powered Italian superbike around a MotoGP circuit in Spain is just as incredible as it sounds. And with this one, Ducati has taken the game ahead.

TVS Ntorq
It’s the fastest TVS scooter to go on sale and has many segment-first features, but should you buy one? We get you the answer.
