Issue: 197  |   Autocar India: January 2016

We’re kicking off the new year with an exclusive India drive of the new Ford Endeavour – it’s big, tough, and packed full of technology. Mahindra will soon launch the KUV100, a compact crossover, and we’ve gotten under its radically sculpted skin for a first look. Check out the new Volvo S90 that will take on the E-class, 5-series and A6 in 2016, and also Tata’s new Zica hatchback taking on the Maruti Celerio diesel. And in an age-old rivalry, AMG’s new C-class, the C 63 S, once again locks horns with the BMW M3.  We also reviewed Ducati’s new, affordable Scrambler Icon.

New Ford Endeavour

The big, chunky SUV from Ford is finally getting a replacement. It still remains an old-school brute, but now, comes loaded with properly modern tech and a new set of engines. Read our exclusive India drive of the brutish 4x4 in this month’s issue.

Volvo S90
For many Indian buyers, Volvo is not always the first choice in their search for a luxury car. The Swedish carmaker has plans to change that with its brand new S90 luxury sedan. Can this car stand shoulder to shoulder with the E-class, A6 and 5-series? Find out in our extensive first look.

Tata Zica
This January, Tata will launch its all-new Zica hatchback. It’s a stylish little car that has lots riding on its shoulders. It goes against entry-level heavyweights like the Celerio and i10. We put it through its paces to find out if it has what it takes to make Tata a serious small-car player.

Mahindra KUV100
There’s a new ‘Double oh’ at Mahindra. This time, it’s a mini crossover called KUV100. This is the smallest car from M&M yet, and will debut the company’s latest set of engines. How ‘Kool’ is it? Check it out for yourself.

Mercedes-AMG C 63 S vs BMW M3
The two super-sedans have been at each other’s neck since time immemorial. And in quest for the answer to “Which one is better”, we drove the two through some winding ghat roads. If you’re troubled by the same question, this is one comparison you mustn’t miss.

Mercedes Classic Car Rally
An entire Sunday-morning’s worth of Mercedes-Benz classic cars all over Mumbai roads. What more could you ask for? We have an exhaustive report on the Rally that saw the entire Mercedes heritage come back to life.

Maruti S-Cross DDiS 200
If you’re out to get yourself an S-Cross, this story is for you, especially if you think that Maruti is short-changing you with the S-Cross DDiS 200 variants. We feel that the smaller hearted crossover makes a strong case for itself. 

Ducati Scrambler Icon
The Italian bikemaker is out with its most affordable motorcycle yet. The Scrambler. It’s light, nimble, and boy is its retro styling appealing! We got astride the Scrambler Icon to bring you a first-hand account of what is a stepping stone into the world of big bikes.

All that and the latest from the world of automobiles awaits you in Autocar’s first issue of 2016.  Grab yourself a copy now!
