Issue: 221  |  Autocar India: January 2018

The January 2018 issue brings you exclusive drives of the new Audi Q5 and a camouflaged prototype of Ford’s upcoming compact UV. We also drive BMW’s latest M5 and Volvo’s XC60, put the Skoda Kodiaq through our rigorous road test, elaborately list out all the new bikes you can expect in 2018, and ride TVS' much-awaited Apache RR 310 around a race track. Here are the highlights:

New Audi Q5
We are the first ones to drive Audi’s new Q5, and if we had to sum up the experience in one line, we’d say it feels like a shrunken Q7. Read the full story to know why.

2018 Volvo XC60
Mid-size luxury SUVs seem to be the flavour of the month, and Volvo’s XC60 is packed to the brim with features and tech. We found out if the sweet Swede is all the SUV you need.

New BMW M5
The latest in a line of BMW’s super-sedans, the new M5 makes a radical switch to all-wheel drive. Is the change for the better? We had to find out.

Lexus NX 300h SUV
In true Japanese tradition, it is quirky, and in true Lexus tradition, it is properly luxurious. Does this funky-but-indulgent SUV work? A drive in the NX 300h gave us the answer.

Captur vs Creta vs Duster comparison
Renault’s latest SUV aces on style but also faces competition from outside and inside. Can it hold its ground in the face of not only the hugely popular Creta but also its rugged sibling, the Duster?

Skoda Kodiaq Road Test
The Kodiaq, Skoda’s first seven-seater SUV, created a great first impression. Will that persist now, once we’ve put it through the paces of our gruelling road test?

LA Motor Show report
A whole range of new cars and concepts were put on show under the cloudless skies of the Sunshine State. We bring you a comprehensive report of the highs and lows from the other side of the world.

TVS Apache RR 310
Multiple spy shots and trending rumours later, the cover is finally off the most-awaited motorcycle of 2017 – the TVS Apache RR 310. Does it live up to the hype though?

New Bikes for 2018
Looking to buy a new motorcycle this new year? You’re in luck, because a bevy of bikes is expected to grace the Indian market in 2018, and we’ve listed it all out for you.

India Bike Week report
The country's largest bike festival, India Bike Week brings together riding clubs, music, art and a whole lot of eye-candy motorcycles, and we were there to report on it all.
