The latest issue of What Car? is out now, and this month we're looking at the very best new SUVs you can buy. Whether you're looking for a small or large one, and whether you're interested in petrol, diesel or electric power, we've got the details on all the SUVs you could want.

It all starts with the new I-Pace and our first verdict on Jaguar's first electric car reveals the reason why Tesla should be very worried indeed. Next up is Audi's Q8, the sportier sibling to the luxurious Q7 that's coming towards the end of the year. We've also driven Porsche's new plug-in hybrid Cayenne, plus we've got everything you need to know about Rolls-Royce's first SUV, the Cullinan.

Elsewhere in the issue, we pit Mini's recently updated hatchback against the plush Ford Fiesta Vignale and Audi A1 to decide which makes the best posh small car. The new Alpine A110 is in action, too, fighting off the Audi TT RS and Porsche 718 Cayman.

What's more, the new Suzuki Swift Sport takes on the Volkswagen Golf GTI in a twin test of baby hot hatchbacks, while the SUV onslaught continues as Audi's Q5 takes on the Volvo XC60 to see if diesel or plug-in hybrid power is best.

New cars reviewed this month include:

  • Volkswagen Touareg
  • Volvo V60
  • Ford Fiesta ST
  • Audi A6

In our advice section this month, we take you through the results of our latest reliability study, which reveals what really goes wrong with cars. Plus, we let our Reader Test Team loose on Volvo's new V60, while our tame car salesman reveals his tricks of the trade – and some horror stories, too.

Meanwhile, our used buying guide this month focuses on the Vauxhall Zafira Tourer and we decide the best used estate car as the Skoda Superb takes on the Ford Mondeo.
