Issue: 147  |  Autocar India - November 2011

Here’s what this month’s action-packed issue has in store:

Ford EcoSport scooped: Is there a market for an SUV that has no off-road capability, but tonnes of attitude? Evidently so, and we have the exclusive on Ford’s Fiesta-based EcoSport.

XUV500 Road Test: We put Mahindra’s first monocoque SUV through the rigours of our full road test to see if it can really put its money where its big, cheetah-like mouth is.

Nissan Sunny Road Test: Nissan’s compelling new small saloon makes a good case for itself. We go the extra mile to see if it is more than just a boot-ed Micra.

VW Jetta vs Skoda Laura: In many ways, the last Jetta didn’t seem special enough to sit above its cousin, the Laura, in the entry luxury market. So does the new one put up a better fight?

Rolls-Royce Ghost EWB driven: How could you possibly improve a car as phenomenal as the RR Ghost? Stretch it, of course. We see if 170mm of added length makes it more of a car.

Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale driven: A romp through the countryside in the rip-snorting MC Stradale – the hardest and fastest Maser currently on sale.

Lamborghini Aventador driven: Describing a big, V12 Lambo using words like “refined”, “advanced” or “civilised” seems laughable, but that’s exactly what it claims to be. We went to see if it was all a bunch of bull.

Discover India: We take you around picturesque Khimsar in Rajasthan, truly one of our country’s real oases.

Ducati 1199 Panigale preview: An early and highly detailed look at Ducati’s tech-packed super-sports flagship bike.

We ride the HeroMotoCorp Impulse: Hero MotoCorp's’s new high-riding motorcycle is more than just a breath of fresh air, it’s proof the company can make a cracking bike all on its own.

Three for Free: That’s right, this issue comes with THREE free booklets – an inside look at the Honda Brio, a detailed look at Renault’s illustrious F1 history and the complete guide to India’s first F1 Grand Prix. Plus a super 2012 calendar poster (Subscribers will get all these in a separate mailer).

This is only the tip of the iceberg, folks. Pick up your copy today to see what else we did this month!
