Bollywood Actor, Abhishek Bachchan says "The TopGear Magazine Awards were an awesome experience. I have always been a petrolhead and a TopGear Magazine fan because it feeds my passion for cars. One of my favorite possessions is the Audi I drive. I am thankful to Mr. Tarun Rai for having me at the awards night and it was good to see the industry celebrate in characteristic TopGear flambouyance".

This year’s winners include names like the Mini Cooper S, Renault Duster, Lamborghini Aventador, Mercedes-Benz M-Class, Audi Q3 and KTM Duke 200 among others who have managed to impress the TopGear Magazine team with their sheer capabilities. “We do not judge a car by numbers alone. That would be too easy and strangely, inaccurate. I think for all true car and bike lovers, they are not just machines but living beings whom we talk and spend time with,” said Girish Karkera, Editor, TopGear Magazine India. “The underlying common thread between all our winners is that they are the new benchmark in their respective segments. More importantly, they are brilliant in their own right.”

Taking into account the expansion and diversification of the Indian automotive market, the 2012 edition of the awards have also evolved with all-new categories over last year to reflect the evolution of the Indian automotive scene. Especially, in the SUV segment where we have seen a lot of action. “We Indians don’t seem to have enough of SUVs,” notes Girish Karkera. “Which has prompted us to create new categories to justify the surge in the different kinds of these lovable machines that we now have access to.”
