Road tests, travel, dune-bashing and a parade worthy of a king, here is a look at what’s inside the latest issue. 

Issue: 151|Autocar India March 2012

  • Maruti Ertiga First Look: An exclusive look at the Ertiga, the new baby MPV. Based on the Swift platform, Maruti is looking to create a niche for itself in the ever-growing MPV market.
  • Volvo S60 D3 driven: The S60 has entered the entry luxury segment with a 2.0-litre diesel engine and an amazing price tag that should give its German rivals more than a few sleepless nights.
  • BMW 640d driven: The big, loping BMW 6-series coupe is most certainly a looker. And now powered by a torquey diesel engine, it’s not so hard on your pocket either. 
  • Maruti Swift Dzire tested: A chopped boot makes this Dzire much better value for money than before but with just 316 litres of boot space, is it really a proper saloon anymore?
  • Mahindra Xylo E9 vs Toyota Innova: The Xylo is back in a new avatar with the mHawk engine from the Scorpio, but how does it fare against the reigning MPV king?
  • BMW X3 3.0d vs Audi Q5 3.0 TDI: They may be diesel-powered but these 3.0-litre, six-cylinder SUVs are more for the performance-oriented. See them duke it out in our comparison.
  • Porsche 911 Carrera S: Porsche has a habit of pushing the limits of its cars and this new 911 is no different.
  • Ferraris driven at the Buddh: We drive not one, but two Ferraris on the streets of Delhi like responsible citizens and then drive them on the Buddh circuit like they are meant to be.
  • Parx Supercar Parade: We were there, front and centre, when Mumbai woke up to over 30,000 horsepower. See what we saw, feel what we felt at the 2012 Parx Supercar Parade.
  • Mahindra Great Escape, Jaisalmer: We take a Mahindra Thar to the Thar desert and go dune-bashing at the annual Great Escape.
  • Bajaj Pulsar 200NS first ride: Bajaj’s superstar is reborn. The striking new Pulsar 200NS now uses new triple-spark tech, and could very well be a game-changer for Bajaj.
  • Ducati 795 first ride: We ride Ducati’s most affordable superbike made for Asian markets.
