The August 2014 issue of What Car? is now on sale.

This month's big group test takes a look at executive cars, with the new Mercedes C-Class taking on its rivals. It goes up against the Audi A6, Lexus GS, and the benchmark for all small to medium exec cars, the BMW 3 Series.

We have a triple test this month, in which the new Porsche Macan is pitted against two other small but premium SUVs, the Range Rover Evoque and the Audi SQ5.

If you are searching for a hot hatch then have a look at our twin test, which features the Volkswagen Golf GTi and the Audi S1, plus family cars are investigated with the Peugeot 308 going head-to-head with the Seat Leon.

On page 33 of this month's What Car? we tell you about all the great reviews, videos and features we have coming up on the website. Here they are in one handy place.
