For Petrol Heads..Everywhere

AdvantagesLight reading, informative, broad coverage of motoring in general

DisadvantagesNone

"Auto Express has been around for almost 16 years. Which is nearly the same length of time as some misguided driving inspector in Reddish licenced me to drive motor vehicles until 2038. As I have been a (mild) car nut for most of that time, I remember buying the first issue when it came out. This week we are on issue 820, and I suspect we have had about three quarters of the issues in between. It is therefore high time I sat down and analysed what ..." Read review

Bargain reading

AdvantagesGreat mag at a great price

DisadvantagesNot glossy style mag

"...there are plenty of female Auto Express readers too. I am however praying that there aren’t ANY male readers when it comes to Hello magazine. If there are I want to know where they live and how often they were brainwashed as a child. Anyway, straying off the point a little here so let’s get back to it. The magazine has been around for quite some time now (heading towards 700 issues!) and gives you all of the latest information whilst ..." Read review

News, Reviews and Exclusives

AdvantagesGreat Exclusives, useful tests, Bargain

DisadvantagesNone

"A.E. is an excellent magazine that only costs , if you subscribe, about 80p an issue. It is weekly, but they always find new exciting news, new cars to review, and have excellent scoops - such as the amazing Audi supercar, and most recently the new Citroen range. It is just the right size - it doesn't get boring -- but it does give all the info. you need. As well as this, there are big tests of things like Windscreen wipers- you wouldn't find ..." Read review

Ideal For The Dentists

AdvantagesShort unchallenging articles

DisadvantagesNo depth to the writing

"Auto Express has been going for over 10 years now. It was launched as a budget competitor to Autocar and though it still undercuts its old adversary by 50p or so that is hardly a killer saving. Like Autocar it is published weekly and similarly offers the reader a diet of road tests and motoring news and opinion. However whereas the Autocar relies on its authoritative stature Auto Express projects itself as a more vibrant younger magazine. Auto ..." Read review

Autoexpressive

AdvantagesCheap and good value

DisadvantagesNot fully comprehensive for some things

"This is a good magazine, at least I think so. It is weekly and currently costs £1.35 per issue. I usually buy this as it is cheaper than, though often inferior to, Autocar (please read my review of that publication as well). I features regular spy-shots which are not shown by most other magazines and I really enjoy reading these. Also worthy reading are the motoring industry news columns. It is well stocked with small yet interesting articles throughout ..." Read review

a quality car magazine

Advantagesgood layout, good review and value for money

Disadvantagesnone

"I buy Auto Express every now and again. The layout is excellent and easy to follow, with features on both new and used cars. Giving good details on price, insuarnce, extras, and driving experience. At £1.35 its a good value for money. It has good links with the up and coming on line purchases of cars and review on line trading as well as the traditional forecourt sales. I think that is one of the most objective magazines in shop available for auto ..." Read review

Middle of the road motoring

Advantagescheap, good exclusives

Disadvantageslack of depth to articles

"Auto Express is the tabloid of motoring magazines, no in depth aticles, nothing too time consuming to read and reflecting the opinions of the man in the street on new car prices, petrol taxes etc. rather than taking the industry view. Its a right colour publication unfortunatly print on cheap and not very durable paper and the overall feel of the magazine is that it is more accesable than the rivals that include Car and Autocar. Auto Express has ..." Read review

Petrol-head delight!

AdvantagesCheap, well written, good photos

DisadvantagesDoes not cover motor sport

"This weekly car magazine presents the right balance between the latest car news and insights into current motoring issues. There are some super photographs to whet the appetite for new models, and well written reviews. Comparisons between rival models are well thought out, with the relevant information to enable a potential buyer to make a decision. There are no details generally on motor sport events, but the focus is mainly on day-to-day vehicles. ..." Read review

Weekly reader for last 4 years

Advantagesweekly news on cars and related subjects

Disadvantagesnot as good as competition

"Having bought nearly every issue for the last 4 years I class myself as quite a good judge on motoring weeklys. If you read my review on Autocar you will realise I have a lot of affection for my weekly motoring fix. Unfortunately even though this is a competantly written work it is not as involved or passionate as the other weekly motoring mag. The articles are impartial and concisely written but they lack the feel of an oppinion that you get ..." Read review
