Awaiting you in our February 2020 issue is an India exclusive drive of the all-new Audi A8 L, and a scoop on MG’s shock new sedan for India. To go with that, we’ve got exclusive drives of the Aston Martin DBX and BS6-compliant Ford Endeavour 2.0 diesel with a 10-speed automatic. We’ve tried out Toyota’s extensive range of electrified vehicles, and also driven the Hyundai Aura, Kia Carnival, Tata Nexon EV, Jeep Compass diesel-automatic, Volvo XC40 T4 petrol and Audi’s new flagship SUV, the Q8, as well as the hotter 600hp RS Q8. Also in this issue are a detailed breakdown of the upcoming BS6 emission norms and an exhaustive preview of all the cars and SUVs coming to Auto Expo 2020. Also on the menu for this month are first rides of the much-awaited KTM 390 Adventure, Yamaha Fascino 125 and Ray-ZR 125, Honda’s updated SP 125, BS6 Suzuki Access 125, Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro, a report from Dakar 2020 and more juicy news from the industry and features you’ll enjoy reading. Here are the highlights:

Audi A8 L
It has come to India long after its global debut. So has Audi’s new flagship sedan, the A8 L, been worth the wait?

Aston Martin DBX
The DBX is the first SUV from Aston Martin in its 106-year history, and one that – as a drive in a prototype revealed – could change the fortunes of the iconic British brand.

BS6 Ford Endeavour 2.0
The BS6-compliant Ford Endeavour looks similar to the BS4 model, but now comes with an all-new, 2.0-litre diesel engine and a 10-speed automatic gearbox. We take it out for an exclusive drive.

Hyundai Aura
The sedan version of the Grand i10 Nios has arrived in the form of the Hyundai Aura. How good is it? And can it win buyers in the compact sedan segment? We find out.

Tata Nexon EV
Tata’s first long-range all-electric SUV, the Nexon EV, promises to be practical and affordable, and we’ve driven it.

Kia Carnival
The Carnival is Kia’s second model for India, and it’s here to redefine the premium MPV segment.

Audi Q8
Audi’s new flagship SUV, the Q8, is big on size and style, and can be tailored to your tastes, but can it justify its equally large price tag? We find out.

MG sedan in the works for India
MG is readying a brand-new sedan for the Indian market that’ll be big and also slightly unconventional. We bring you the scoop.

Auto Expo 2020 preview
Auto Expo 2020 is just around the corner, and we’ve prepared an exhaustive list of cars that are set to be showcased at the latest edition of the biennial motor show.

BS6 countdown
The biggest emission regulation change in a decade is upon us. We demystify the tech behind BS6 emission norms.

KTM 390 Adventure
Is the KTM 390 Adventure the motorcycle scores of enthusiasts in India have been dreaming about?

Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro
The power of a sport bike combined with the go-anywhere ability of an enduro – is the Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro all the motorcycle you need?

Yamaha Fascino and Ray-ZR 125
We get astride Yamaha’s new, BS6-compliant 125cc scooters – the Fascino 125 and the Ray-ZR 125.

BS6 Suzuki Access 125
Suzuki’s highest-selling two-wheeler in India, the Access 125, gets its BS6 update, and we’ve tested it out.
