Issue: 152  |  Autocar India April 2012

The Union Budget may have brought a lot of changes for the auto industry this year, but that hasn’t slowed things down one bit. Here’s what our April issue has in store.

  • Pajero Sport First Drive: We get an exclusive go in Mitsubishi’s latest bruiser. Have they nailed the perfect formula this time around?
  • Chevrolet Tavera Neo 3 First Drive: In another exclusive, we take a look at the improvements Chevy’s given the ageing Tavera to keep it up to date with regulations, and the competition.
  • Around the country in 15 days: We go on a breathtaking – and record-setting – drive to the four corners of India in an Indigo eCS. Take the 14,000km journey with us.
  • Oh, Geneva!: Possibly the most important motor show for carmakers and enthusiasts alike. We take you across the show floor, looking at the most significant cars from this year’s show.
  • Pete’s Lauras: India’s patron saints of performance, Pete’s, have taken Skoda’s Laura 1.8 TSI engine up to three new levels of crazy. And we’ve driven them all.
  • Two-pedal time: We put Ford’s new Powershift double-clutch automatic Fiesta up against the reigning midsize petrol auto champ – the Honda City Automatic.
  • Audi Q7 V12 TDI: If it drove past you on the street, you might mistake it for a regular Audi, but this 493bhp, 102kgm monster can leave sports cars in the dust.
  • Autocar Asian Car of the Year Awards 2012: Announcing the winner of the first ever award that recognises the best car for the entire Asian continent.
  • Astride the Ducati 1199 Panigale S: A day on the track with Ducati’s knife-edged, high-tech, flagship supersports bike.
  • Kimi Räikkönen: The fast Finn is back in F1 and is very excited to be back – We talk to him about this and more in a candid interview in this issue.
  • FREE 8-page booklet: Included with this issue is an inside-out look at Renault’s funky diesel hatchback, the Pulse.

All this and much, much more in this feature-packed issue. Be sure to grab your copy from the nearest magazine stand as soon as possible.
