What Car? February 2019

The latest issue of What Car? is out now, featuring your ultimate guide to all of the new cars coming in 2019. If you're planning on buying a new car next year, it's a must-read.

We've also pitted the brand new Audi A1 against the Mini hatchback to find out who makes the best premium small car, while elsewhere the Seat Ateca and Skoda Karoq face a fresh challenge from the Nissan Qashqai in the family SUV market.

Other group tests this month include the Audi Q7 taking on BMW's X5 in a clash of luxury SUVs, while the all-electric Hyundai Kona and Kia e-Niro do battle to see which zero-emission SUV most deserves your attention.

Our first drive section this month is led by the all-new BMW 3 Series, while other cars driven for the first time include:

  • Audi E-tron
  • Porsche Macan
  • Mercedes GLE
  • Peugeot 508 SW
  • Ford Focus Estate
  • Seat Tarraco
  • Mercedes B-Class

This month's advice section is all about saving you money on car insurance, while we also rank the best breakdown patrols based on who will come to your aid first should the worst happen. Our reader test team gives their verdict on the new Suzuki Jimny, too.

In our used car pages, the BMW 4 Series takes on the Mercedes C-Class Coupé, and there's a full used buying guide on the Skoda Fabia too.

It all leads into our Buyer's Guide, where we name the best cars in every class and for every budget. Plus, we've picked out some of the best Target Price deals from What Car?'s online New Car Buying service, with these potentially saving you thousands of pounds.

And, as always, #AskWhatCar answers your motoring questions, our data section is on hand to help you choose the best new car for your needs and our True MPG tests tell you what fuel economy you can really expect from that car.

Indeed, our redesigned format makes What Car? magazine more useful than ever, whether you are choosing your next car, looking to reduce your motoring bills or simply want to keep up to date with the latest issues facing drivers.

The number of adverts has been slashed, letting us dedicate more space to comparison tests. We've also reintroduced long-term car ownership reviews and an expanded consumer section, more used car buying guides and extra data.

The February 2019 issue of What Car? magazine is in shops now, or you can save money with print or digital subscription offers at The Magazine Shop.
