Issue: 208  |   Autocar India: December 2016

Our final issue for 2016 packs in a long list of reviews. The big cover story this month is a first drive of the mighty new Toyota Fortuner. There are also drives of the Hyundai Tucson, those of the AMT-equipped Kwid and Terrano, the VW GTI and rides of the Moto Guzzi V9 cruisers and Benelli’s fully-faired 302R. Here’s a look at what’s inside.

All-new Toyota Fortuner
The SUV king returns in an all-new form. It’s bigger, tougher, imposing as ever, and this time, Toyota has upped its luxury quotient big time. We tell you how big a step-up it is from its hugely popular predecessor in our first drive of it. 

Volvo S90 vs rivals
Volvo has played the luxury card with the S90, a replacement for the ageing S80 sedan. To check out how it stacks up against the stalwarts in the segment, we pit it against all its rivals – the 5-series, the E-Class, the XF and the A6.

Hyundai Tucson
If a premium SUV, a size bigger than the popular Creta, is what you’re looking for, then Hyundai’s all-new Tucson might be just for you. But which one do you choose -- the petrol or the diesel? Not to forget, both are available with manual and automatic gearboxes.    

2017 Nissan GT-R
Nissan’s supercar slayer is almost here in its latest facelifted avatar. We slipped it out into the middle of the night, and let it rip the streets of Mumbai. And one thing’s for sure, the limited few who’ll have this in their garage, boy they’re going to have fun behind its wheel!  

Renault Kwid AMT
Once a preserve of luxury cars, the automatic gearbox is now available in affordable cars like the Tata Nano, the Alto K10, and now, the Kwid 1.0. How easier is this little Renault to drive now?

Spare a thought - A survey
Which car is easy to live with, and which one will drill a big hole in your pocket with maintenance bills? We conducted a comprehensive survey on spare parts prices of over 150 cars sold in India to tell you just that. 

Moto Guzzi V9 range
Few things scream Italian exotics like a Moto Guzzi. The bike maker recently launched its V9 range in India, which comprises two very different flavours of cruiser motorcycles – the Roamer and the Bobber.  However, this lot of bikes is as pricey as they are retro.  

That’s just some from a long list of exciting stories we have for you this month. To find out more, dig right into the December issue of Autocar India.
