What Car? December 2017

The latest issue of What Car? is out now, featuring more data, bigger comparison tests and the most comprehensive new car reviews around.

Our cover story this month is dedicated to the most reliable cars in the UK, as the results of our annual reliability survey reveal which cars will cause you the least trouble. Across 32 makes and 169 different models, we tell you the best (and worst) performers in each class.

We've also group tested the new Peugeot 5008 against its seven-seat SUV rivals, the Nissan X-Trail and Skoda Kodiaq, while the new Kia Picanto takes on Volkswagen's Up to decide who makes the best city car.

Elsewhere, we pitch the Audi SQ5 against the Porsche Macan and Range Rover Velar, and the Renault Zoe takes on the Toyota Yaris Hybrid.

Other new cars reviewed this month include:

  • Seat Arona
  • Hyundai i30N
  • Audi A8
  • Skoda Karoq
  • Kia Stonic
  • CitroΓ«n C3 Aircross
  • Aston Martin DB11
  • Kia Stinger
  • Vauxhall Grandland X

We've also let our reader test team loose on the new CitroΓ«n C3 Aircross, and we've shown you the best way to spec a Nissan Qashqai.

And, as always, #AskWhatCar?, our Buyer’s Guide and data section will help you choose the best new car for your needs, while our True MPG tests tell you what fuel economy you can really expect from your next car.

Our redesigned format makes What Car? even more useful, whether you're 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.
