Evo India-May 2019 Issue | Magazine
Five (relatively) affordable performance cars slug it out in the May 2019 issue of evo India magazine – on stands now
The mercury is rising! Summer is here and things are getting really hot with the five-way sportscar comparison story. The Mercedes-AMG C 43 Coupe takes on its sub-crore performance car rivals in one high-octane story. We’ve also got loads of BMWs in this issue – the X7, X4, 7 Series and 8 Series.
Being a roadtrip special, we’ve taken some of our favourite cars to some really special places. A highlight of this issue is attempting to climb the treacherous Sandakphu trail in the humple Volkswagen Polo. We’ve also driven across Egypt in a Scorpio, taken the Mahindra Marazzo down the east coast of India, thrashed a Toyota Yaris up the Valparai hill climb and explored Maharashtra’s majestic forts in the Renault Duster.
There’s plenty on two wheels two – Royal Enfield’s Bullet gets a new variant, the Interceptor 650 goes up against the Street Twin and we get our hands on the new Kawasaki Versys 1000.

To celebrate 20 years of the Polo in India, we put it to the ultimate challenge – climbing the rutted trail up to Sandakphu, the highest peak in West Bengal

The BMW 7 Series goes under the knife to stay fresh and comes out with a massive new grille and more luxury
