Plus, we have drives of the Renault Triber, Isuzu V-Cross 1.9D AT and a comprehensive road test of the MG Hector. Also in this issue is a comparison involving petrol-manual versions of the Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300 and Ford EcoSport and a list of 7 cars to buy before they die, to go with our reviews of the Suzuki Gixxer 250, MV Agusta Turismo Veloce, Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon, Indian FTR 1200 S + more juicy news from the industry and features you’ll enjoy reading. Here are the highlights:

Audi A6
The long-awaited new A6 is the first salvo from Audi in its fight to claw back lost ground.

Renault Triber
Seven seats in a sub-four-metre car is something that has been tried before, but it is the brilliantly conceived Renault Triber that gets the formula right.

Isuzu V-Cross 1.9D AT
Armed with a new, 1.9-litre diesel engine and an automatic gearbox, the V-Cross is also now significantly more expensive. Is it worth the asking price?

Hyundai Venue vs Tata Nexon vs Mahindra XUV300 vs Ford EcoSport
With a strong engine and SUV pretence, the Hyundai Venue 1.0 turbo-petrol seems to be the one that can do it all. We find out if it can better the competition.

MG Hector road test
We tell you if MG’s first SUV for India is worth all the hype with a full-fledged road test.

7 cars to buy before they die
We pick the cars you should consider buying before they are axed in the run up to the stricter BS6 emission norms.

Land Rover Defender
The iconic Defender is back in an all-new avatar. We tell you what to expect from this India-bound Land Rover 4x4.

Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon
Is the smallest iteration yet a true Pulsar at heart? We find out.

MV Agusta Turismo Veloce
There’s more to MV Agusta’s sport-tourer than its stunning appearance, as we experienced on a rainy day.

Indian FTR 1200 S
Inspired by Indian Motorcycle’s devastatingly successful flat-track racer, the FTR 1200 S is a street bike like no other.

Suzuki Gixxer 250
A decently powerful engine, comfortable ergonomics and a neat design make the Gixxer 250 an impressive motorcycle. 

Stars of the 2019 Frankfurt motor show
There was no shortage of new cars, EVs and concepts at the 2019 edition of the Frankfurt motor show. We bring you the highlights.
