Autocar magazine 24 April: on sale now

This week in Autocar, we list the top 100 best cars on sale today and detail the new electric Mercedes-Benz G-Class.


The new Mercedes-Benz G-Class is an “uncompromised” machine that the firm is making some bullish claims about – we’ve got everything you need to know.

Mini, meanwhile, has completed its line-up with the reveal of the Aceman – a Renault Clio-sized hatchback positioned between the Cooper and Countryman.

Over at Maserati, the firm is deciding whether to move the next-generation Quattroporte onto an extended version of the new Granturismo’s platform – we detail why it’s an ‘important problem’ for Bologna.

Staying in Italy, Alfa Romeo boss Jean-Phillipe Imparato has urged EU politicians to focus on protecting jobs in the industry and not model names, after a spat that saw the Alfa Romeo Milano renamed the Junior.


With a new platform, a different motive power, and more weight, can the electric version really behave like a Porsche Macan should? We head to France to give one a go.

Audi has addressed the criticisms of the A3 to make it even more appealing for those after big-car quality in a hatchback body.

Meanwhile, the new S3 has been treated to a power upgrade with RS3-spec driveline tech – we find out if it can still hold a candle to its most competitive (and cheaper) rivals.

We’ve already driven the coupe variant of the new Mercedes-Benz CLE, but not the convertible – until now. On sweeping roads around Tenerife, we find out if the new car is a worthy replacement for the C-Class and E-Class cabriolet.

We’re also driving the Lotus Eletre and, for road test 5671, we’re in the highest-specification Bentley Bentayga.


It’s been five years since we last ranked our outright favourite new cars, which means we’re long overdue to give an updated list. Considering the top 100, we find out which are the most capable and worth your cash.

If some of our top 100 cars look too expensive, how about some second-hand alternatives? We look at the bargains you’ll find in the classifieds and what you need to know about them.

Around 800 Ford Mustangs lined up at the British Motor Museum in celebration of the everyman sports car’s 60th birthday. We pay a visit, becoming wowed by the variety on show.


Matt Prior riffs on the big-car qualities of the Renault Clio and how you seemingly get more for your money in today’s market, and why manufacturers should have to pay customers to lug about subscription-based features.
