Issue: 236  |  Autocar India: April 2019

Our April 2019 issue features three, much-awaited SUV comparison tests and reviews of a number of new cars – the BMW X7, Volkswagen T-Cross, Ferrari Portofino, Ford Figo facelift and more. Also in this issue are exclusive details of the MG Hector SUV and the Tata Altroz premium hatchback, reports from the 2019 Geneva motor show and Cartier Concours d’Elegance, our first rides of the Yamaha MT-15 and the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400, along with a face-off between the Benelli TRK502 and Kawasaki Versys 650. Here are the highlights:

MG Hector
It’s big, it’s bold and promises to bring a slew of attractive features – we bring you the low-down on MG Motor’s first product for India, the Hector.

Tata Altroz
After the Harrier, the next big thing from Tata Motors is set to be its new Baleno and i20 rival, the Altroz. We tell you all you need to know about this new premium hatchback.

Mahindra XUV300 vs Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza vs Tata Nexon vs Ford EcoSport
It’s a promising entrant in a truly crowded space, but does the Mahindra XUV300 have what it takes to beat the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon and Ford EcoSport? We find out.

Tata Harrier vs Jeep Compass vs Mahindra XUV500
While Tata did pleasantly surprise everyone with its aggressive pricing for the Harrier, we find out if this much-awaited five-seat SUV can topple the Jeep Compass and Mahindra XUV500.

Mahindra Alturas vs Ford Endeavour vs Toyota Fortuner vs Isuzu MU-X
When it comes to full-size, seven-seat ladder-frame SUVs, which one is the king? We’ve brought the Alturas, Endeavour, Fortuner and MU-X together to pick a winner.

Driving a Ferrari Portofino... in the desert!
Can the Prancing Horse feel right at home in the land of the camel? We drive it to a remote corner of Rajasthan to find out.

Aston Martin Vantage
The new Vantage is more sportscar than fast GT, as we found out in our first drive of the latest iteration of Aston Martin’s two-door.

Volkswagen T-Cross
We get our first taste of Volkswagen’s smallest SUV yet – the T-Cross.

BMW X7
It’s an SUV that aims to offer the luxury of the 7 Series, along with seven seats. Does it succeed? We find out.

Yamaha MT-15
It’s one of the most anticipated motorcycles of 2019. We take it out for a ride to see if it lives up to the hype.

Benelli TRK 502 vs Kawasaki Versys 650
We pit the affordable, new midsize ADV from Benelli against the Versys 650, to see who comes out on top.

2019 Cartier Concours d’Elegance
The Cartier Concours d’Elegance headed to Rajasthan for the first time, and there were a number of truly stunning vintage and classic cars on display.

2019 Geneva motor show
We round up the most important cars unveiled at the Geneva motor show.
