The June 2018 issue of Autocar India features a full review of Volvo’s smallest SUV, the XC40. There’s also an exclusive drive of Skoda’s replacement for the Yeti, the India-bound Karoq, and our first taste of Lamborghini’s bonkers 650hp SUV, the Urus. Also part of this issue are reviews of the new Honda Amaze and Volkswagen Polo GTI and a comparison involving the Toyota Yaris and its chief rivals. Here are the highlights:
Does the smallest XC in the range have what it takes to become the volume-getter for Volvo? We bring you the answer.
A new Skoda SUV will take up the position left vacant by the Yeti. Can the Karoq be as versatile and capable as its predecessor? We drive it abroad to answer all your questions.
Touted as a super-SUV, the 650hp Urus goes all out to show why it deserves to wear that Raging Bull badge on its nose.
With the all-new Amaze, Honda is once again training its guns on the Maruti Dzire. We find out just how good it is.
Volkswagen Polo GTI
The sixth-generation, MQB platform-based Polo GTI is out. With fingers crossed about its India prospects, we head to Spain for a drive of this hot hatch.
Yaris vs City vs Verna vs Ciaz
Mid-sized sedans, super-sized ambitions: the Toyota Yaris is stepping into a segment occupied by heavy-hitters such as the Honda City, Hyundai Verna and the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. We pit them against each other to pick a winner.
Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster
We put the Bonneville Speedmaster - Triumph’s Harley-baiter - through a long-distance highway test.
TVS Apache RTR 160 4V vs Suzuki Gixxer SP
Want a stylish, fun and yet practical motorcycle? We help you pick from between the Suzuki Gixxer SP and the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V.
Suzuki’s naked middleweight is a fine sum of all its parts and it makes for a lovely, very sweet package overall. We ride it in India to bring you the full review.
