What Car? April 2017

The April issue of What Car? is on sale now, containing all the latest drives, group test verdicts, and advice on buying and running a car.

This month's cover star is the brand new Range Rover Velar. It's the Evoque's bigger brother, and slots in between that and the larger Range Rover Sport in Land Rover's luxury line-up. Also starring this month is the brand new Audi Q5, which we pit against the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Mercedes-Benz GLC in a large SUV triple test.

There's also a small SUV shootout, as the new Mini Countryman takes on the Audi Q2 and our 2017 Small SUV of the Year, the Seat Ateca.

We've also tested the new Kia Rio against the Skoda Fabia to see who makes the best small hatchback, and pitted the new Audi A5 Sportback against the BMW 4 Series Gran CoupΓ© to see which svelte four-door coupΓ© you should spend your money on.

Other cars reviewed include:

New Honda Civic New Land Rover Discovery New Volvo V90 Cross Country New Volkswagen Golf New Skoda Octavia New Toyota Prius Plug-in New Peugeot 5008

This month we've also investigated whether you can save money by taking your car for a service away from a franchised garage.

And, as always, our Helpdesk, Buyer’s guide and data section continue the What Car? ethos of helping you choose the best new car for your needs, while our True MPG testers tell you what fuel economy you can really expect from your next car.

What Car? magazine is in shops now, or you can save money with print or digital subscription offers at The Magazine Shop.
