Latest on Autocar

In this month’s issue we drive the limited edition, high-adrenalin Range Rover Sport SVR which has been honed in both the horsepower and handling departments. We finally get a local drive of the new Ford Mondeo and charge along in the new hybrid Cayenne from Porsche. Mazda’s new CX-3 takes on the Nissan Juke and Qashqai in a three-way small SUV stoush, while the new Skoda Fabia takes on the Mazda2 and Ford Fiesta. For those that like it practical, we see how BMW’s 2 Series Active Tourer measures up against Merc’s revised B-Class. Regular contributor Paul Owen explains why he has bought a hard-edged Ducati sportsbike with his Gold Card entitlement only a few years away and we test the Maserati range on road and track. Also driven this month the new Drive-E powered V40 Cross Country, the 220i convertible, the base model Peugeot 308, the big Touareg TDI V8, the most powerful Outback and we reacquaint ourselves with the Prius C. In the bike department, we sample the new Ducati Scrambler and the economical Honda NC750S. The new issue is on sale now.
