The wait for Autocar India’s 21st Anniversary issue ends now! This mega 320+ page issue is on stands and packs news, reviews, comparisons and features you just can’t afford to miss. Headlining our 21st Anniversary issue is the much-awaited review of the Kia Sonet compact SUV. There’s a six-way midsize sedan showdown and also a memorable drive to Alibag in a Ferrari GTC4 Lusso… aboard a ferry!

To go with those, we have a detailed first look at three new cars – the Mercedes-Benz S-class, Gordon Murray’s revolutionary T.50 hypercar and the second-gen Rolls-Royce Ghost. We’ve also got drives of the Re 43 crore Bugatti Divo, a wild Lamborghini Huracan RWD on the streets of Mumbai, the first luxury EV in India – the Mercedes-Benz EQC, the Hyundai Venue with the clever new iMT gearbox and much more.
