Why shove 600bhp into supposedly practical everyday saloons and estates? Why the hell not!?! Under all the pretend pragmatism there’s a child in each of us who’s all too happy being wild once in a while. This month we’re celebrating Children’s Day the only way we can think of, with the country’s only shootout between the M5, E 63 S AMG and RS6 Performance. But when did children ever stop playing, so we follow it up with the mad as hell Mercedes-AMG G 63, the gold standard of performance SUVs that is the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, the utterly looney Lamborghini Urus, and even Tata’s go-faster JTP cars. Miss our November issue and you’ll find yourself sulking like a kid for a full month!

BMW M5 v Mercedes-AMG E 63 S v Audi RS6 Avant Performance: 600bhp, AWD, 100kmph in the low 3 seconds and near-300kmph top speed. Mad? Very!
Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG: The Original Gansta exchanges its tommy gun for a gattling gun and is back with hysterical performance.
Porsche Cayenne Turbo: In the real world of ruts and potholes, you don’t need a supercar to go fast. You need this 550bhp SUV!
Tata Tiago & Tigor JTP: For the first time ever, an Indian car maker decides to have a performance division and we can’t stop smiling at the motorsport-inspired tweaks..
Lamborghini Urus: A brilliant blend of comfort and practicality with a streaks of wildness and lunacy. This could only be a Lamborghini.
Hyundai Santro: 20 years after the brand entered India, the legend is back and we drive it.
Adventure special: Exploring adventure in Sikkim with the Nexon while the WR-V enables us to experience kayaking. The Duster takes us to sip the world’s costliest tea. And we take the Toyota Yaris and explore the river Narmada from finish to start.
Ducati Multistrada Enduro 1260 & Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT: What’s growing faster than our population? The adventure bike scene of course. And the latest to join the bandwagon is the beaky thing from Suzuki and Ducati’s off-road variant of the Multi.
