George Hill is the staff writer at What Car? and joined the team in 2021. He writes and creates content of all forms, including news, features and the odd review for both online and print.

After completing an undergraduate degree in Real Estate Management, George began his career in property in 2019. However, after a period of reflection during the first Covid lockdown in 2020, he decided to change his career direction and combine his passions for both writing and cars. 

In September 2020 George enrolled on the Automotive Journalism Masters at Coventry University and graduated the following year. During his year of study, George built up his experience by creating content for his blog and YouTube channel, writing for classic car auction websites and reviewing any car he could get his hands on.

George is an expert in:

  • Car news and features
  • New car buying and discounts
  • Petrol, diesel and hybrid cars
  • Electric cars
  • Consumer advice

George Hill Q&A

What’s the best piece of advice you could offer a car buyer?
Try before you buy – especially if it’s a used car. In some cases, you can find a car that looks great in pictures, but when you see it (and drive it) in person it’s a completely different story. So, for that reason, I always recommend going to view and test drive a car before signing on the dotted line. That way, you can check that the car drives smoothly and comfortably. Plus, you can check over some of the finer details, such as the bodywork, the electrics, the service history and the general wear and tear. 

What’s the best car you’ve ever driven?
I could be biassed here and say that my old Range Rover is the best car I’ve ever driven. And, while it is brilliant, it’s a car that doesn’t suit everyone.

The Dacia Sandero, on the other hand, is very good. Even though most modern cars are big, heavy and filled with technology, the Sandero felt far more appropriate for modern motoring. It’s cheap and efficient, and yet it still offers everything you might need.

What will the car market look like in 20 years?
I think cars will be more of a device rather than a mode of transport in 20 years time. Even today, infotainment systems operate like a tablet or smartphone, while driver assistance technology is continuing to impact the way we drive. Of course, with the 2035 ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars looming, the majority of new cars will be powered by electricity.
