Issue: 209  |  Autocar India: January 2017

We kick-start 2017 with a jam-packed issue. This month, we give you our first impression of Maruti’s latest, the Ignis, and bring you the first drives of the brand new Skoda Kodiaq and BMW 5-series to name a few. There are two shootouts this month, one where the Toyota Camry Hybrid takes on the Honda Accord Hybrid, and the second where the Ford Endeavour and the brand-new Toyota Fortuner duke it out for top-spot. There are plenty more features for you to dig into. Here’s a glimpse of what’s in store.

Maruti Ignis
Maruti’s funky little hatchback will take on the Mahindra KUV100. This radical-looking mini-crossover will be the most affordable model to be sold through Maruti’s Nexa chain of premium showrooms. We tell you all about it this month. 

All-new Maruti Swift
This hot-selling Maruti will be replaced with an all-new model in 2017. It’s sportier, more upmarket, and is expected to be more fun to drive than ever. Read all about it in our report.

New Toyota Fortuner vs. Ford Endeavour
Ford’s new Endy has been going really strong ever since its launch. But now, it’s got to take on the all-new Fortuner which is more luxurious and rugged than the model it replaces. Which one between these two burly seven-seat SUVs should you pick?

India to Paris drive in a Renault Kwid
Our crazy crew of drivers, writers and photographers embarked on an epic 18,000km-plus journey from New Delhi to Paris in a Kwid 1.0. Check out the first leg of our journey, where we braved the roads of Myanmar and China. 

Skoda Kodiaq
The Kodiaq, Skoda’s brand new flagship is headed our way. It’s a seven-seat SUV based on the Superb sedan, that could give the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Toyota Fortuner a proper run for their money.

New Bikes for 2017
The coming year will see a slew of new exciting bikes and scooters in India. We have shortlisted 20 such two-wheelers that are really worth the wait.

MV Agusta F3 800
Exotic Italian bikemaker MV Agusta has launched an impressive middle-weight super-sport in the F3 800. But does it justify its asking price of Rs 16.78 lakh?
