“what car”

see opinion

price

Buying a car is one of the most expensive purchases most people are going to make so the publishers have made a magazine which makes buying a new car much easier that any other mag in the country. It contains the most popular cars in the UK e.g. Ford Fiesta, Peugeot 206,Toyota Yaris and one of my...

“Now WHAT CAR shall I buy”

published 03/02/2002

Great in-depth information on cars

Maybe should have a sports section

One of my first ops on this site was about my favourite magazine – a car magazine of course! -, Auto Express. It still is, but there is another magazine I tend to read and it’s called What Car? (For all you people who haven’t read the category) I never used to read What Car? or...

“The Definitive Car Magazine”

published 31/01/2001

well laid out, full of stats, takes years to read ...

Puts you off buying that hot hatch when you see th...

What Car? is an epic Bible of a car magazine, full of every possible stat you could think of on every single car for sale in the UK. It was the 1st motoring magazine to include the specs for each and every car and soon all the competition followed suit, but What Car? Also has many other strengths...

“Solid as a Volvo”

published 19/01/2001

vast database of figures

much unchanged from month to month

To call What Car? a magazine seems a little unfair - it is in fact a giant tome of motoring statistics published monthly. As a car buyers guide it has reasonable coverage fo the months new entrants to the UK car market, and three or four road tests or group tests along with a couple of features...

A lot of onformation available

Not always bang up to date.

I was very surprised to find that no one else had reviewed this magazine. I was under the impression that it was at least one of Britain's best selling car magazines. Oh well. I hope mine is sufficient. I have visited this site a few times. It doesn't seem to be updated as often as Autoexpress.co...

Easy to read, unbiased

none

If you are thinking of buying a car, this is the mag to go for, i fould it excellent when looking for my new Volvo XC90, the descriptions of cars are easy to read and the reviews are in great detail. The pictures are clear, concise and obviously well taken. With loads of new cars tested each...

“Great source of information”

published 21/02/2004

Great source of information

Sometimes not accurate with info

I use What Car? in my job dealing with company cars. It's a great source of information. The company car tax calculator is great - and I use it often! The magazine is packed full of ideas for new cars with great reviews and test drives so you get the full information. I do feel though, as with...

Question

published 02/03/2014

Which car do you recommend. Am looking for a car under£4000 with low road tax. Maybe a soft top, a small car.
Open question Answer

Answer

published 27/11/2014

A peugeot 206cc would indeed be a great choice as it is available with a 1.4 a 1.6 or a diesel engine, which should all keep road tax down. A good volvo C70 is available for around the £4000 mark with a diesel engine. Then there are Vauxhall Tigras well in your price range. The safest best would be to look at (in my opinion) a Vauxhall Astra Twintop or a Megane CC both with a folding metal roof, which are cheaper to maintain and more secure.

“A Friend In The Trade”

published 18/11/2000

Good Round-Up of statistics, good reviews

Writing can be a bit repetitive

If you are in the market for a new or used car it is important to get advice from a number of sources. If you have a friend in the know then that’s good for you but many haven’t. In this case there is plenty of advice out there but whom do you trust? There are many opinion channels including...
