This week’s issue of Auto Express

In this week's issue we drive the new Clio Renaultsport and look at how to minimise the cost of classic car ownership

This week’s issue – out on 20 March 2013 – is packed full of first drives, including our first impressions of the all-new Renaultsport Clio 200 hot hatch. We’ve also got news on Merc’s new baby SUV as well as offerings from BMW, VW and Audi.

Think keeping and running a classic car is expensive? In this week’s Auto Express we show you how you can keep a lid on spiralling costs by hiring out your pride and joy and offsetting its financial burden.

We’ve also spied the upcoming Jaguar XS – a sleek BMW 3 Series rival due in 2015 – as well the new M3 super saloon and Mercedes S-Class Coupe. There’s leaked images of the brand-new Range Rover Sport and details on the next Ford Mustang and electric VW up!, too.

In drives, we get behind the wheel of the BMW 3 Series GT in popular 320d guise, give our verdict on a pair of new Kia’s, and see if the punchy 2.0 TDI diesel engine is a good fit for the VW Beetle Cabrio.

Our road test team has been out testing a trio of SUVs to see if the all-new Toyota RAV4 can take fight to the Ford Kuga and class-leading Mazda CX-5. Elsewhere we test a pair of identically specced VW Group hatchbacks – the Skoda Rapid and SEAT Toledo.

Our longterm updates say farewell to the quirky Renault Twizy and practical SEAT Alhambra, while all your usual product reviews, buyer’s guides and letters are included, too.

Issue 1260 is available to buy now, priced at £2.45. Alternatively, you can claim six issues for £1 and have the magazine delivered straight to your door every week, download our new iPad edition, or simply talk to your local newsagents to order a copy for you at no extra cost.
