This week's episode of the carandbike is action-packed! The Mahindra Thar adds another feather to its cap after scoring four stars in the global NCAP crash tests! Even better is the fact that the off-road SUV gets four stars for child protection as well. We tell you all about it! After the Thar, Preetam gets some seat-time on the new BMW R 18. It is an old-school, heavy-set, chrome-laden cruiser motorcycle from BMW which drops jaws wherever it goes. We give you the complete lowdown. Lastly, Kingshuk gets his hands on the Mercedes-AMG GLC43 4Matic coupe. A special performance SUV! It is special because it is the first AMG model that is assembled in India.
