Issue: 232  |  Autocar India: December 2018

Our December issue brings you a drive of the India-bound Toyota Camry Hybrid; a comparison between Hyundai’s new Santro, Tata’s Tiago, Maruti’s WagonR and the Datsun Go, and reviews of Tata’s performance-focused Tiago and Tigor JTP. Also part of this issue are reviews of the second-gen Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, the all-electric BMW i3s, Mahindra’s new flagship SUV, the Alturas G4, and all the info about the three new Jawa bikes. Here are the highlights:

Toyota Camry Hybrid
The next-gen Camry Hybrid is India-bound in 2019 and promises to be a real improvement over its predecessor. Is it as much of a step up as Toyota claims it to be?

Tata Tiago JTP, Tigor JTP
We drive the performance versions of the Tiago hatchback and Tigor compact sedan to find out if these are the affordable, fun cars India has been waiting for.

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga
It’s bigger and feels more upmarket on the inside, but is the second-gen Ertiga good enough to defend its territory? We find out.

Santro vs Tiago vs Go vs WagonR
The Santro’s made up a comeback, and it has got all-new rivals to take on. We pit the new Santro against them to pick a winner.

BMW i3s
Can BMW’s all-electric hatchback make a case for itself in the Indian market?

Volvo S60
We head to sunny California to drive Volvo’s next-gen rival to the Mercedes C-class and BMW 3-series.

Mercedes GLE
The all-new GLE is more luxurious and feature-rich than before and even has the option of seven seats. We drive it to see just how much of an improvement it is.

Volkswagen T-Cross
Expectations are high for Volkswagen’s Creta-rivalling SUV, which is due in 2020. We bring you a closer look.

Jawa returns
The iconic motorcycle brand is back. We tell you all you need to know about its new range.

EICMA 2018
