Autocar magazine’s 10 February issue is out now. Here’s what to look out for in this week’s magazine.

The Ferrari FF is no more, but the Ferrari GTC4Lusso is born. There’s a new look and a new name for Ferrari’s quirky grand tourer, and some impressive new statistics to boot.

We’ve been behind the wheel of two important SUVs: the Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0 TSI and the Mercedes-Benz GLC 250d AMG Line. Both cars have the potential for lucrative sales figures, but do they measure up in one of the most competitive segments in the market?

Fancy grabbing a bargain modern classic? We’ve got the best used buys from the 1990s and 2000s, including star cars from Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Mini and Volvo.

Also in this issue:

Skoda Octavia vRS 4x4 – can all-wheel drive improve Skoda’s bargain hot-hatch package?

BAC Mono – following its success in the UK and overseas, the British track weapon is expecting a sibling.

Land Rover Defender – we say goodbye to Land Rover’s iconic off-roader, in the aftermath of the model’s production coming to an end.

VW’s bespoke EV – is there electric life after Dieselgate? Volkswagen looks to recreate the success of the BMW i3 with an electric model that’s "as iconic as the Golf".

Our long-term test cars:

We say goodbye to the Range Rover Sport, while our bruised BMW 220d Active Tourer gets some much-needed TLC. Matt Prior brings you the latest on life with the Volvo XC90.

Deals:

James Ruppert takes you through the steps to take if your car has been damaged by the recent floodings, and we’ve got stealthy performance covered, with our rundown of the best Q-cars from £2000.

Where to buy:

Autocar magazine is available through all good newsagents and for download from Zinio and the Apple iTunes store.

You can also buy one-off copies of Autocar magazine from Newsstand, delivered to your door the morning after.
