AMG’s Panamera fighter! GT 63 S 4-door headlines March 2020 issue of evo India
The 2020 Auto Expo headlines the March 2020 issue of evo India. From the Tata Sierra electric concept to the Mahindra Atom EV last-mile connectivity solution we have all the Auto Expo stars including the VW Taigun, Skoda Vision IN, Kia Sonet, Hyundai Creta, MG Gloster and Suzuki Jimny (it might be coming to India!). We spent time at Great Wall Motors learning of their 1 billion US dollar investment plans for India, had the boss of Force Motors walk us around the all-new Gurkha and much, much more in our Expo special.
Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door Coupe
Also at the Expo was the very car on the cover of the March 2020 issue of evo India, the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door Coupe. It is not just the fastest and most powerful car to be launched at the Expo but the one with the longest name — and we have driven it exclusively in this issue. It sits at the pinnacle of what AMG can do with a four-door car — eclipsing even the E63 AMG that we know and love — and has over 600 horsepower, all-wheel drive and all sorts of electronic trickery to make sure it can put down all that power. A force of nature, that’s what the AMG GT 63 S is.

TVS Apache RR310
The Apache RR310 gets small changes including a new screen, tweaked suspension, riding modes and new tyres, but the changes come together to make the motorcycle more complete than it has ever been. We tested it at the MMRT and have come away thoroughly impressed.
We also did our fair share of road trips this month — taking the Kia Seltos to Madhya Pradesh on our Art with Seltos series, drove the Toyota Camry Hybrid to the forests of the western ghats and made a late night run through Mumbai with the Honda Amaze
