Our second issue for 2021 is electrifying – we’ve exclusively driven the Tesla Model X in India, got behind the wheel of Bengaluru-based Pravaig’s Extinction, compared the Tata Nexon EV to the Hyundai Kona Electric and MG ZS EV, gone on a road trip in a Mercedes EQC and road tested the Ather 450X. Along with this, we have numerous reviews, comparisons, features and news stories you’ll enjoy. Here’s a hint of what to expect:

Tesla Model X

We exclusively sample the American EV-maker’s SUV on Indian roads to get an idea of what’s to come later this year.

Tata Safari

Tata has revived the Safari nameplate for its new flagship SUV but does it live up to its namesake?

Skoda Kushaq prototype

Skoda’s Kushaq mid-size SUV will arrive to take on the Creta and Seltos in March. Our first impressions after a drive in a near-production model are quite positive.

BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine

We find out if the long-wheelbase 3 Series has gained in rear seat space and comfort at the expense of its dynamism.

Pravaig Extinction prototype

Bengaluru-based EV start-up looks to shake up the electric car market with its upcoming luxury fleet service.

Ford Mustang Mach-E

A roaring, rumbling V8 is a signature of Ford’s Mustang. The new Mustang Mach-E, on the other hand, is a crossover with an all-electric powertrain. Does it deserve the Mustang badge?

Nexon EV vs ZS EV vs Kona Electric

There are three affordable all-electric SUVs on sale today – the Tata Nexon EV, MG’s ZS EV and the Hyundai Kona Electric. We tell you which one is the best for your money.

Nissan Magnite vs Maruti Vitara Brezza

A traditional strength of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza has been its value-for-money quotient. Along comes Nissan’s aggressively priced Magnite to potentially upset the status quo.

Altroz iTurbo vs i20 Turbo vs Polo TSI

The Tata Altroz iTurbo, Hyundai i20 Turbo and Volkswagen 1.0 TSI are three premium hatchbacks that are meant to be practical yet fun. We find out which turbo-petrol gives you the most rounded experience.

Holidaying in a Merc EQC

The 280km trip from Mumbai to Mahabaleshwar isn’t anything to stress about in a petrol or a diesel car. However, in an EV, it’s a different story.

Jawa Perak

There’s no doubt Jawa’s take on a bobber bike looks stunning and comes with a peppy engine. We find out if it’s compromised in other areas.

2021 TVS Apache RTR 200

The addition of some segment-first kit at a nominal price increase means TVS’ Apache RTR 200 is an even more compelling package.

Ather 450X

From the real-world range to its on-road performance, we put the 450X e-scooter through our in-depth tests.
