In the June 2016 issue of Autocar India, we bring you an exclusive review of the GLC – Mercedes' answer to the Audi Q5 and BMW X3. We’ve also got first drives of Datsun's upcoming budget hatch, the Redigo, Honda's Hyundai Creta rival, the BR-V, and the uber-luxurious Bentley Bentayga. And two India-bound German SUVs – the Audi SQ7 and the VW Tiguan – show us what they’ve got on European roads. Read on to find out what more is in store.
The GLC will plug the gap between the GLE and GLA in Mercedes' SUV line-up, and is the company's long-missing answer to the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Volvo XC60. And the ace up its sleeve – petrol power – and it’s this new GLC 300 that we’ve got an exclusive review of this month.
After the success of the Renault Kwid, Datsun plans on upping the heat in the entry-hatch space with the Redigo. We’ve got an in-depth first drive of the car, and we’ve also put it head-to-head with the Kwid.
Honda recently launched the BR-V, its small SUV in India. It's the only seven-seater in its segment and comes with a familiar set of mechanical bits. But does it have what it takes to challenge rivals like the hot-selling Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster?
The Tiguan will be launched in India around mid-2017, and is the first of many new Volkswagen SUVs set to reach Indian shores. We went to Berlin to get you a drive of this tech-packed car on its own turf.
Bentley recently launched the Bentayga in India. Just like its Rs 3.85 crore price-tag, everything about it is extravagant in the extreme. And this issue, we managed to spend some time with this new rolling palace on Indian roads.
If you think the regular Audi Q7 isn’t powerful enough, the SQ7 is just for you. It makes 435hp from its twin-turbo diesel V8, and just for good measure, there’s an electric compressor bolted on too. It's coming to India soon, and we’ve driven it this month.
RE Himalayan vs RE Thunderbird vs Mahindra Mojo
With the Royal Enfield Himalayan, India has its first genuine adventure tourer. We pit it against Royal Enfield's own Thunderbird 500 and Mahindra Mojo to find out which one of these mile munchers is the best bang for your buck.
