Cars and aftermarket brands


Autocar is the essential new and used car news, car reviews and car entertainment magazine for committed car buyers and car enthusiasts.

Published every Wednesday, both in print and as a downloadable digital edition, Autocar is loved by car industry executives and car enthusiasts alike for its authoritative tone, entertaining outlook and accurate reporting. Print and digital issues can be bought as individual copies or by subscription from the Apple iTunes store or Zinio.

Among the weekly highlights are Autocar’s legendary road test, which is regarded as the most thorough test of a new car anywhere in the world. Our news section reveals the biggest new car stories and uncovers secret new car details each week. The features section adds unrivalled variety, and includes drives of new or unusual cars, interviews with industry leaders and definitive comparison tests. The dedicated new and used car deal section, meanwhile, ensures that car buyers can get the vehicle of their dreams at the right price.

Each week, Autocar also features award-winning columnists who are well-known for their expertise and entertainment value. Steve Cropley writes about his weekly driving experiences, James Ruppert outlines his weekly used car choices, Colin Goodwin tackles the biggest motoring issues and Richard Bremner takes a whimsical look at concept cars of yesteryear.

Autocar’s readers are recognised as the most influential and knowledgeable in the UK as a result of the quality and variety of the editorial. The knowledge they glean from the magazine and pass on to family and friends helps inform thousands of car purchases a year.

Autocar magazine is also published in 16 more regions beyond the UK, including fast-emerging and influential car markets such as China, India and Japan. Each month, more than one million copies of Autocar are bought around the world.
