Issue: 196  |  Autocar India: December 2015

Toyota’s immensely popular MPV, the Innova, has grown bigger, better and more powerful for its second generation, and we tell you all about it. For performance car lovers, there’s the Mercedes-AMG GT S, Ford Mustang, Audi S5 and Abarth-powered Avventura, and as a special treat, we lined up all ten AMG models sold in India on a runway and let them loose. Also inside is a first drive of the Honda BR-V, the latest line-up of Triumph Bonnevilles and the newest set of Avenger cruisers from Bajaj.
2016 Toyota Innova
Since its launch in 2005, the Toyota Innova has remained the undisputed champion of the MPV segment in India, despite it becoming increasingly expensive over time. Now that the car is showing its age in terms of both looks and technology, Toyota will to replace it with a bigger, better equipped and more powerful successor, come 2016. We bring you a detailed first look.
Honda BR-V
2016 will also see a small SUV entrant from the Honda stable, but this one packs in seven seats. Does it have what it takes to lock horns with the current crop of small SUVs that have flooded the Indian market? We went all the way to Japan to find out.
Maruti Baleno vs Hyundai i20 vs Honda Jazz
After bringing you a detailed review of the latest premium offering from Maruti, the Baleno, we give the petrol manual version of the new hatchback to prove its mettle against the tried and tested Hyundai i20 and recently launched Honda Jazz.
Ford Mustang
The true-blue, muscle-bound American is headed our way very soon. We drove the car in San Francisco to offer you a taste of what the American icon has in store for us, and interestingly, there wasn’t a V8 under the hood this time.
VW Beetle
The last ‘new’ Beetle, despite its famous heritage and retro appeal, failed to make a mark in India, thanks to its big price tag and somewhat effeminate looks. But next year, the ‘new new’ Beetle will be coming in to make amends, and we’ve driven it.
10 crazy AMGs
We took ten AMGs far from the maddening crowd to an airstrip in Amby Valley and let nearly 5000 horsepower loose, just to see what happens. Not to forget, included in the ten cars is the latest offering from Mercedes, the AMG GT S.
Volvo XC90 vs Audi Q7
In October, we brought you the detailed review of the India bound all new Q7 from Audi. This time, we let the new Q7 battle it out with the brand new XC90 from Volvo to find out which one of the two titans has the upper hand.
Great Quattro Drive: Homecoming
Speaking of the new Audi Q7, our incredible journey from Germany to India finally comes to a close as the two-SUV convoy rolls into Mumbai via Mongolia, China and Myanmar, with the odometer reading just over 20,000km!
2016 Triumph Bonnevilles
The British bike manufacturer has taken an icon and brought it into the 21st century. The Bonnevilles, are now more powerful and tech packed. Take a thorough first look at the latest line-up of Bonnevilles for yourself.
