Subscribe now and you stand a chance to win a limited edition Omologato Mahindra Racing watch worth Rs 40,000 with guaranteed gifts worth Rs 1000 on every purchase. Here’s what you can expect to find in these pages:
We’ve got two AMG bruisers on our cover. The G 63 AMG is a relic of a forgotten time, with a modern day AMG engine shoehorned in to it. The GLS 63 AMG is an alternative that has gotten with the times – still a heavyweight but it has been refined to a point of near perfection.
There’s been tremendous hype about the Huracan Performante. Its claims about being the fastest production car around the have been challenged by naysayers on the internet since the news dropped. However, we’ve gotten behind the wheel of one and have come back with a redefined benchmark of what it means to be quick.
FCA has been floundering in India for a while, but they seem to be intent on plugging the holes on their sinking boat. The Jeep Compass is that plug. A compact SUV with proper Jeep DNA in tis veins, does it have the potential to change their course? We’ve driven the car, get the issue to know what we think of it.
This month, we may have gone a little overboard with our obsession with racecars. We’ve driven the M4Electro, Mahindra Racing’s challenger in Formula E championship that will be going up against the might of teams like Audi and Renault. We’ve also driven the new Ameo Cup car, a proper race car, developed in-house by VW’s Indian motorsport division. Meanwhile, the Golf GTI TCR is the first factory built ready-to-race touring car from Volkswagen.
It’s raining Porsches this month! The Panamera Turbo redefines what you think a four-door, four-seater is capable of. That insane folding wing just adds to the cool that it already is. Meanwhile, just when you thought Porsche couldn’t improve the 911 any more than the 911 R, they give us the 911 GT3 and blow us away yet again.
This month’s driven section is rather comprehensive. The Volkswagen Tiguan is finally in India and has locked is horns with the other German heavyweights. Volvo have given us a go behind the wheel of the soon to be launched XC60. A mini XC90? You bet. The BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class have been launched with new engines and the Skoda Octavia has been given a refresh for 2017.
Also free with this issue is a 52 page OFF ROAD supplement. The MU-X faces off against the Fortuner, Endeavour, V-Cross and Pajero Sport, we teach you how to tame a Tiger and try out the road-legal Powerland 900D ATV. We also tell you how to be a better spotter, and take you to Bhutan on the Gang of Duster’s first international drive. We get in to the intricacies of being a spotter, and get muddy with our long-term Himalayan and Thar. This, and a whole lot more in the July issue of OFF ROAD.
