This week’s issue of Auto Express

Pick up the latest issue to find out which car we crown Britain's best hatch

This week’s issue of Auto Express – out on 13 February 2013 – has the full story on the new, more practical BMW 3 Series GT, the upcoming Citroen C4 Picasso and official pictures of the new, three-door SEAT Leon SC.

We also lift the lid on the Mercedes A45 AMG – a hot hatch that's capable of keeping up with a Porsche 911 – and VW’s fastest ever drop-top, the Volkswagen Golf R Cabriolet.

In drives, we’ve been behind the wheel of the £295,000 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, the new Renault Clio and MINI JCW GP II. We also give our definitive verdict on the UK’s cheapest new car, the Dacia Sandero Access, as well as the SEAT Toldeo and Mercedes CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake.

The VW Golf won us over in its first group test last year, but how will it fare against the all-new Skoda Octavia? We've pitted both against the Honda Civic to see which is Britain’s best hatchback.

Our second group test sees the ageing Fiat 500 go head-to-head with the new Vauxhall Adam. Both of these stylish city cars offer endless scope for personalisation, but which is the best buy?

Plus, we have all the lastest consumer news, product reviews, letters and buying guides, as well as a three-page feature on how motoring costs compare around the world.

Issue 1,255 is available to buy now, priced at £2.95. Alternatively, you can claim six issues for £1 and have the magazine delivered straight to your door every week or download our new iPad edition.
