Issue: 166  |  June 2013

We get behind the wheel of Mercedes-Benz’s stunning new A-class hatchback, drive one of the most anticipated cars of the year, go bonkers in an MRF F2000 racer, and spend a day with every generation of Porsche 911 ever. And we head to Austria to drive the new KTM 390 Duke. Read all about it in the action-packed June 2013 issue of Autocar India.

Mercedes-Benz A-class

Expensive hatchbacks have never really taken off in India. Hatchbacks have traditionally been associated with affordability and the perception of the Indian psyche states that ‘saloons equal luxury’. But that could be set to change once Mercedes-Benz launches its all-new A-class. We get behind the wheel of this stunning new car on Indian roads.

Ford EcoSport

It’s arguably one of the most awaited cars to hit the Indian market, and we’ve been tracking its development for 18 months now. But is Ford’s EcoSport as good as they make it out to be? There’s only one way to find out. Read our detailed first drive impressions of Ford’s capable compact SUV.   

Jaguar F-type

The E-type is one of Jaguar's most iconic sportscars and with the new F-type, Jaguar believes it has a worthy successor. Can the F-type create a legacy of its own? There’s only one way to find out.

Maruti Ertiga vs Chevrolet Enjoy

Until now, the Maruti Ertiga had the compact MPV market to itself, without a rival priced in the same range. But Chevrolet's Enjoy is looking to rain on Maruti's parade. In this battle of space and practicality, find out who comes out on top.

50 years of the 911

It’s almost hard to believe it’s been 50 years since the first Porsche 911. There's arguably no car more iconic than the rear-engined German, and to celebrate this world-famous birthday party, we went to the company’s home in Stuttgart to drive all seven generations of the car.

KTM 390 Duke

KTM's 200 Duke was a runaway success; it even won our bike of the year award last year. Now, KTM is bringing a more powerful version to India, the 390. We head to Austria to test this flaming orange machine. If you’re a bike nut, be excited.   

MRF F2000 race car

Driving a single-seater race car is no easy task – it takes skill, patience and plain guts. But when you get the chance to drive India’s fastest single-seater, you wouldn’t pass it up, would you? We head to the track to test the MRF F2000 race car and let the g forces scramble our brains.
