The latest issue of Auto Express is now on sale, and includes a 36-page section on the ultimate guide to buying a car

This week's issue of Auto Express - out on 31st August 2013 - is a massive 132-page issue providing you with everything you need to know when buying a car. It covers Britain's best dealers, insurers and breakdown operators. We also have the full story on the new BMW i3, which is just £25k and the most exciting electric car yet.

Plus, we reveal what lies behind the making of a car advertisement, including the dos and don'ts.

In drives, we test the latest version of the supercar legend - the Porsche 911 GT3, and at 469bhp, it promises to be the most thrilling edition yet. Elsewhere, find out how a facelift is helping the Renault Grand Scenic stay ahead in the MPV market. We also drive the Kia Pro_cee'd GT, Suzuki Swift 4x4 and the SEAT Leon SC.

In road tests, we put three supermini-based SUVS to the test, including Renault's new clio-based Captur, the Peugeot 2008 and the Nissan Juke. Meanwhile, in the land of luxury SUVs, we pit the new Mercedes GL against the steal-hard, veteran Land Rover Discovery.
