Autocar magazine 14 February – out now

This week’s big news – BMW has unveiled the new X4 to the world, with a new fight against the Range Rover Evoque and Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe.

Making news this week, we have all the details on the new Lancia Stratos, brought to life by the bespoke car manufacturer Manufacture Automobili Torino (MAT). Only 25.

Not accessible enough? Nissan to bring a new Z car on the market with 475bhp, a V6 and four-wheel drive. Learn more in this week’s issue of the magazine.

Do you want reviews? We tested the Audi A7 Sportback 50 TFSI guise, and we even had a go in a prototype of the Kia Ceed. We came away impressed.

As Suvs continue to take over, we had a go on two of them – the Toyota Land Cruiser 2.8 D4-D, and the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross 3 AWD.

Our full road test this week, however, is the Audi RS4 Avant. Take a read of Audi’s latest hot summer car, and discover if you can kick the Mercedes-AMG C63 estate from the top of the deck.

Our features this week include a marathon stint in Skoda Karoq, the man behind the original Mercedes-Benz G-Class, the history of diesel and the not-so-small world of radio-controlled cars.

Our cars

We say a teary farewell to the Suzuki Ignis – a car that has enchanted its way into the hearts of many of our editors. Also, we are still looking for a new feature of the jam-packed Mercedes-benz E-Class estate, while we find a touch of practicality in our new Honda Civic Type R.


What is the best Mercedes-Benz you can buy it for € 3000? James Ruppert leads us through his teeth. In the meantime, our used car buying guide will take you through how to bag a Ford Puma without being bitten.
