Auto Express Issue 1,681

In this week’s issue of Auto Express we hit the road in the new Nissan Qashqai to see if the reborn iconic SUV can take the fight to the Skoda Karoq and Peugeot 3008.

We also take a closer look at the new Vauxhall Grandland, which has been heavily updated to bring it into line with the Mokka and Crossland.

Plus, we have all the latest on the new BMW X3 and X4 SUVs – as well as the hot M variants – and Ford’s new boss gives us her vision of the future.

In the drives section we gets to grips with the hardcore BMW M5 CS, get behind the wheel of the new Hyundai Tucson MHEV and try out the entry-level Porsche Taycan RWD.

If that wasn’t enough we have an all-electric city car showdown between the new Fiat 500, Honda e and MINI Electric.
