The Tata Hexa is the Indian carmaker's new flagship. Built on the same platform as the now discontinued Aria, the Hexa has seen a sea of revisions that should make it a way more enticing buy. Given Tata prices it right.

The S90 is the new flagship sedan from Volvo and an impressive one at that. On the back of the success of the XC90, Volvo seems to have yet another winner on their hands. The S90 feels luxurious, soothing, comfortable and premium both on the inside as well as out.
A new derivative of the Fiat Avventura crossover, which in turn is a derivative of the Punto hatchback. Clearly, Fiat is enjoying this ‘offshoots’ idea. This is the Avventura Urban Cross and it looks identical to its namesake. Well, almost.
The Accord Hybrid is Honda India’s first full-fat premium offering in years. It is also the brand’s maiden attempt at giving an eco-friendly alternative to the diesel brigade from the Germans. That being said, it mainly rivals the Toyota Camry Hybrid which has been bit of a lone ranger in the Indian market for quite some time. Now Honda, as we know, has bet a lot on hybrid technology.
As the name suggests, it is a diesel version of Volkswagen’s Ameo compact sedan. The German automaker has launched its CS earlier this year but only with the 75bhp/110Nm 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine option; a weak link in what was otherwise found to be quite a strong package. Now with the arrival of the diesel it looks like Volkswagen has completed the package.
Who said a 2.0-tonne coupe can’t gulp supercars for breakfast? Of course it can and it is called the Audi RS7. With four doors, four seats and a large hatch opening for the boot, it’s as usable as any sports Coupe can be.
A new face for the Brio that was launched in India in September 2011. This model has undergone subtle changes across exteriors and interiors, which are in line with the update given to its Indonesian model.
The Elantra is a true testament of how well Hyundai has done in winning the hearts and minds of Indian car buyers. What was once an odd-looking, dreary three-box has matured into a genuine head-turner of a sedan with comfort and features loaded to the boot. Now in its sixth generation, the Elantra is a large D-segment sedan that's improved in all the ways that matter – quality, features, ride and handling you name it.
A little history tells us that the Bolero brand is the undisputed leader of the utility market since 2007. Alas, the vehicle has become a bit long in the tooth with its more than a decade long run in India. Its sales have also started to dip of late, especially with the changing buying trends in the Indian market. So, does the Bolero Plus have the capability of becoming the comeback car that will fetch the volumes home for the brand yet again? We took it out for a drive to find out.
The Safari Storme has completed a month in our garage and the first thing I did was to take it for a week-long 1500km long trip on a well surfaced road. That’s what SUVs are for. Of course, there were some broken roads and a few ditches strewn sparsely and I had to take it off the road across the wild grass to wash her in the pond so that she was ready for the picture above. I could have done most of it in my decade-old sedan, but guess what, it certainly wouldn’t have been so comfortable and stress-free.
Jeep has over 75 years of experience in building SUVs and the brand explicitly claims that their vehicles clearly inspire a sense of freedom and adventure.

The Porsche Macan might be the second SUV Porsche has ever made, but compared to its first, the Cayenne, it is a completely different animal. And a more desirable and likeable one at that. In India, the Macan is sold in three trims – the Macan S in diesel guise, the Macan Turbo, and the Macan Turbo with a performance pack. Our car is the Turbo. It retails for around Rs 1.18 crore ex-showroom and honestly, at this price point, it doesn’t really have any competition.
With the Indian car market only headed towards hatchbacks, compact sedans and crossovers, fewer wagons are on the road than ever before. From the looks of it, the Go+ is the last of its kind. To give you an idea of the practicality, there are a very few cars that photographers don’t complain about using as their rig, and this is one of them.
This was the most interesting machine we had at our off-road day in the picturesque and extremely challenging 19 Degree North venue. If you consider the Mahindra Thar as the most focussed off-roader in our feature then think again.
With the British vibe and Bond music in the air, we find out what the elite Aston Martin DB11 has on offer in India. The DB11 packs in a 5.2-litre V12 engine that produces a whopping 600BHP and 700NM of torque. Watch the video and tell us if it made you swoon too!
Jeep has begun their conquest in India with the launch of the Wrangler, Grand Cherokee and the Grand Cherokee SRT. This legendary brand is synonymous with everything off-road but has grown to be a representation of luxury, power and style. With the range starting from Rs. 71.59 lac, does Jeep have what it takes to capture the Indian sentiment?
