Now WHAT CAR shall I buy

AdvantagesGreat in-depth information on cars

DisadvantagesMaybe should have a sports section

"...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 Auto Express but I used to read a magazine called Complete Car. I found some the other day and I still think they were good (I got my name in their once). But they merged with Autocar and so dropped in my estimation. I tried Carweek but that mysteriously went defunct. This then led me onto Auto Express, the weekly mag, ..." Read review

A Friend In The Trade

AdvantagesGood Round-Up of statistics, good reviews

DisadvantagesWriting can be a bit repetitive

"...couple of consecutive copies of What Car and used its articles to point me in the right direction. The road test reports it carries have varying levels of thoroughness and depth.

The Group Tests which What Car does are very useful and it is always worth looking out for ..." Read review

What Car? Magazine review, silly

AdvantagesA lot of onformation available

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.uk (please read my review of that as well) but still, it has plenty of encyclopediac information available, such as car prices and specification. Also, ..." Read review

The Definitive Car Magazine

Advantageswell laid out, full of stats, takes years to read it all!

DisadvantagesPuts you off buying that hot hatch when you see the MPG

"...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 over the competition. Like most magazines What Car? starts of with short blips of news which would include items such as Safety breakthroughs and new ..." Read review
