New Vauxhall Astra driven in this week’s Auto Express

In this week’s issue of Auto Express we hit the road in the new Vauxhall Astra and put the Skoda Enyaq's electric range to the test

Mag cover June 16

In this week’s issue of Auto Express we drive a prototype version of the next-generation Astra to see if Vauxhall has a hatchback champion on its hands.

We also take a closer look at the new Genesis GV80 SUV and the G80 saloon and find out if the South Korean luxury car maker can make a big impact in Europe. 

Plus, we have all the latest on the new plug-in hybrid Lexus NX and drive a prototype Ineos Grenadier ahead of its 2022 reveal.

We also put the Skoda Enyaq's 333-mile range to the ultimate test by attempting to drive it in four countries on a single charge. 

If that wasn’t enough we reveal the best used SUVs to buy in Britain right now.
