The August issue of What Car? magazine is on sale now. It’s the latest issue of our new-look magazine, which offers a larger data section and a tweaked format for our first drives and reviews.
The Volvo XC90 takes up the prime position on the front cover. The new seven-seat SUV is refined, comfortable and should be on the shopping list of anyone looking for a large SUV.
Other new cars driven for the first time this month include the Ssangyong Tivoli, Seat Ibiza, Audi RS3, Peugeot 208, Mazda CX-3, Honda Civic Type R, Volkswagen Golf Bluemotion and the Ford Mondeo Vignale. Our readers also rate the new Mazda CX-3.
In addition to these first drives we’ve got a number of group tests. This month our road test team has pitted the Volvo XC90 against the BMW X5 and Land Rover Discovery. The other three-car test is from the large family car category, with the new Skoda Superb going up against the Ford Mondeo and Volvo S60.
We’ve also tested the new Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG against the BMW M3. In addition, we’ve driven the Ford Fiesta ST and Vauxhall Corsa VXR back to back to see if the new Vauxhall can topple our favourite hot hatch.
What Car? continues to champion the cause of consumers through its Helpdesk pages, while Target Price shows you the most you should pay for your new car. We also give you the best guide to real-world MPG testing through our independent True MPG test figures.
