This month we turn up the heat with our exclusive drive of the explosive new Mercedes-AMG E63 S. But since there’s no such thing as too much of a good thing, we back it up with an evo-trademark Supertest shootout of the E 63 S AMG with an equally brawny 4-door, Porsche’s Panamera. Back home, we head to Bangalore to try out the Toyota Yaris before taking to the Lap of Mutha -this time to find out if practical diesel hatchbacks can offer The Thrill of Driving. All that, and more, in the May issue of evo India. Out on stands now.
