A clever product or gadget can make every driver’s life easier, whether it’s a sat-nav guiding you to your destination or a car wash bringing a shine to your bodywork. And at Auto Express, we take pride in testing the latest must-have kit on sale week in, week out.
Our group tests have been a crucial part of the magazine since way back in 1995, and we continue to help consumers with reviews of the newest gadgets and accessories in print, online and on our iPad app, published free every Monday.
We've named the best products we’ve tested over the past 12 months – and you can use our round-up as the definitive guide to what to buy - whether you’re looking for car care kit, a Bluetooth hands-free or a new set of tyres.
And if there are gaps in your knowledge of the products and accessories market, we can fill them via the Q&As dotted throughout our 2014 Product Awards in the special June edition of the magazine, which is now on sale from £3.10.
