What Car?'s test centre is the home of the UK's most thorough new car reviews because our road testers are the most thorough in the country.

We have our own facilities to measure, photographs and assess new cars. While our performance tests are done at the What Car? test track, using the latest satellite technology, our main assessments are done over hundreds of miles on UK roads in conditions you'll encounter day-in, day-out..

Finally, our verdicts are the result of hours of debate among What Car? experts, not the views of just one journalist. Meet them...
