Thar.e, Global Pik Up, face-lifted Nexon, V10 road trip in the Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica and Audi R8 GT in the September 2023 issue of evo India
Headlining the September 2023 issue of evo India is an epic road trip in two V10 icons. Both the Lamborghini Huracan and Audi R8 are at the end of the road and we take the ultimate editions of the V10 – the Huracan Tecnica and Audi R8 GT on an epic road trip to the Stelvio pass. This pass is a driver’s paradise and both these cars, now developed to near perfection, make for a wild ride. Also in this issue, we have in-depth coverage of everything that went on at Mahindra’s Futurescape event with stories on the Thar.e, Global Pik Up, Oja tractor range and interviews with key personnel.
Also in this issue, we have reviews of the Tata Nexon facelift, Volvo C40 Recharge, Porsche 718 Spyder and Land Rover Defender. We’ve compared India’s two most affordable electric cars, the Tata Tiago EV and the Comet EV. We’ve also taken some fun road trips – across the G-Quad in the Altroz iCNG and on the trans Haryana Expressway in the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and across the Himalayas on a Himalayan. Plenty of action on two wheels as well with two icons that have been refreshed and renewed for 2023 – the Hero Karizma XMR and Royal Enfield Bullet 350.

The Mahindra Thar has been reimagined in an all-electric avatar – the Vision Thar.e concept. The modular INGLO platform with AWD serves as the foundation for the Vision Thar.e design study. We dig into the details of this future icon
Global Pik Up
Is this the Scorpio-N Getaway we have been looking for? Mahindra's Global Pik Up concept is set to lead the company's global ambitions and redefine the lifestyle pick-up segment in India and around the world.
Volvo C40 Recharge
The first Born Electric vehicle from the stables of the Swedish manufacturer. They claim that it has a greater range and ride quality than the C40 Recharge. And at Rs 61.25 lakh for 400+bhp, it proves to be great bang for your buck as well!
Porsche 718 Spyder
Porsche bids farewell to the combustion-engined Boxster with the 718 Spyder RS, ushering in one of their finest contemporary sports cars. This is essentially a drop top version of the Cayman GT4 RS we drove earlier this year and were blown away by. This might just have the same effect on us.
Lamborghini Huracan vs Audi R8
The era of naturally-aspirated V10s is coming to an end, with the likes of the Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica and the Audi R8 GT RWD serving as torchbearers. So, how about a little friendly competition between these two distant cousins? Across the Stelvio Pass in Italy, we pit the V10-powered Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica against the Audi R8 V10 GT RWD.
Land Rover Defender
What happens when a fanboy is given the keys to a car from his dreams? In this tale, Aatish spends a day driving the Land Rover Defender to see if it can live up to the image he has built up in his head.
“You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.” The P25 from Prodrive is a more upscale and loaded version of Subaru's Impreza 22B STI. We put it through its paces to see if it lives up to the legacy of the Impreza for the price it demands.
ABC of off-roading with the Jimny
Off-roading is a difficult job, and even more difficult is understanding the technology goes into it. This article, the first in an eight-part series on off-road hardware, technology and driving techniques, we discuss the differences between FWD, AWD, and 4WD, and how they affect how far your 4x4 can go.
Can you road trip in a CNG car? We find out by taking the Tata Altroz iCNG on a mega road trip across the Golden Quadrilateral to see if CNG is a viable fuel source for a long road trip.
Trans Haryana expressway
We are exploring Indian expressways, and the Hyundai Ioniq 5 is our vehicle of choice this month. In the third instalment of the Great Driving Roads series: Expressways edition, we set out to traverse the Trans-Haryana expressway.
Kia Seltos: ADAS features
The Seltos is back to rule Indian roads and is equipped with all the bells and whistles you could want to entice you to buy one. However, the safety it now promises is something it can take pride in. We take a look at all the Level 2 ADAS features that the Kia Seltos has to offer and the value it provides.
Hero Karizma XMR 210
A revered veteran of the Indian motorcycle scene has returned to a more modern and feature-rich avatar. The Karizma is back with a 210cc engine and an all-new design. Can it deliver on the Thrill of Riding? We put it through the paces to find out.
RE Himalayan ride
A road trip to the Himalayas with a Royal Enfield motorcycle sounds like a motorhead's dream, right? We embark on a trip to Leh and through the mighty mountains of Ladakh on a Himalayan to tell you why you should be heading out on one too!
