What Car? is the UK’s biggest car-buying brand and has been helping Britain’s car buyers make purchasing decisions for over 40 years. Our tests are widely regarded as the most trusted source of new car advice. 

Whatcar.com is the UK’s leading car-buying website, offering trusted reviews and data on every new car. The website also offers news, advice on car leasing, new car deals and used cars for sale. For an idea of exactly how What Car? works and what we do take a look at the video below. 

Car buying tools

Find a car review

Find the definitive online review for the cars you are thinking of buying. Every new car in the UK is in our database, along with data on emissions, company car tax, depreciation and more.

True MPG

Official fuel economy figures can leave motorists scratching their heads. What Car?'s True MPG tool lets car buyers get an accurate picture of a car's fuel economy before they do the deal. 

Free car valuations

Whether you are heading to a dealer to negotiate a part-exchange, or trying to decide the correct value to sell your car privately, a free What Car? valuation makes sure you are armed with the best information. 

Find a leasing deal

If you want to spread the cost of your new car, avoid big deposits and don't want to own it outright, a lease contract could be for you. We've got hundreds of deals available to search, whatever your budget. 

Approved used cars

Buying a used car can be tricky, but What Car? takes the pain out of a used car purchase. We list only approved, used cars from the Trusted Dealers network, so you can browse and buy with confidence.

Petrol or diesel?

Petrol cars are cheap to buy, quieter, cost less to maintain and the fuel is cheaper. Diesels tend to emit less CO2 and do more miles to the gallon. Confused over what to buy? Let us help.
