Issue: 212  |  Autocar India: April 2017

Autocar April 2017 brings you a first-drive of the upcoming Tata Tigor, the Honda WR-V, the Audi A5 Cabriolet and rides of the new KTM Duke range, the Yamaha FZ25 and the Aprilia SR150 Race. These are, of course, just some of our stories this month. Here’s a better look at what’s inside.

Tata Tigor
With its third compact sedan, Tata plans on giving the compact sedan segment a much-needed shot of style. The Tigor is undoubtedly a lot more than a Tiago with a boot, and we tell you all about it.

Honda WR-V
After the likes of the Hyundai i20 Active, the Fiat Avventura, the Urban Cross, and the Etios Liva Cross, we have another cross-hatch in the Jazz-based WR-V. But is Honda a bit too late to jump into the fray?

Audi A5 Cabriolet
The A5 Cabriolet is what you get when you throw together the pleasure of open-top motoring and the practicality of the brilliant A4 sedan. This C-class convertible beater is coming to India at an estimated Rs 65 lakh, and we tell you what makes it worth waiting for.

Lamborghini Special
How about a little spin in a 740hp Lamborghini Aventador S? Or a trip through the beautiful Nandi Hills in a Huracan Spyder? Heck, we even took the super-rare Huracan Aveo on a date with the legendary MiG-25s in Delhi. Read how all of that panned out in this issue.

Maserati Levante
The Levante is as close as it gets to a Ferrari SUV. It’s a 275hp luxury sports SUV that’s headed for showrooms in India this May, and it’s going to cost an estimated ¬¬– and a whopping – Rs 1.7 crore. We took it out for a spin in freezing Italy.

Audi A4 diesel vs rivals
While we were mighty impressed with the recently launched A4 diesel, we wanted to see if it sparkled just as much when it had to take on heavyweights like the diesel C-class and the 3-series. The winner of our shootout is...

New KTM Duke range
KTM threw in a bit of a surprise this year by launching the Duke 250, and boy, what a pleasant surprise! We got astride the new Duke to bring you our first impressions.
The manic Duke 390 too got a major overhaul, and a new nickname – ‘the corner rocket’. But is it all show and no go?

2017 Geneva motor show
We bring you all the showstoppers from the Palexpo, Geneva. This year’s show had two very important models for India, namely the upcoming, new Maruti Swift and the radical Tamo Racemo from Tata. There’s a first-look of both inside the new issue, along with plenty more!
