As India continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, the lockdown has been extended in the country by a further two weeks. But this shouldn’t keep you from reading the latest issue of Autocar India, which is available for FREE this month too! Headlining our May 2020 issue is a full-blown showdown between the MG ZS EV and the Hyundai Kona Electric. We’ve also packed in first drives of the India-bound BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe and the new Porsche 911 Turbo S. Plus, there’s a detailed first look of the second-gen Audi A3 sedan, our in-depth yearly sales analysis, and tips on how to care for your car during the lockdown. To go with these, we’ve packed in a first ride of the BMW S1000 XR, along with more juicy news from the industry and features you’ll enjoy reading. Here are the highlights:

MG ZS EV vs Hyundai Kona Electric
If it’s an all-electric SUV that you want to buy, which one should it be – the MG ZS EV or the Hyundai Kona Electric? We bring you the answer.

BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe
BMW’s stylish entry-level four-door, the 2 Series Gran Coupe, is headed to India. We get behind the wheel for a quick first drive.
