We've got the scoop on the next Aston Martin Vantage, all the action from the New York motor show, a full road test of the McLaren 570S and much, much more

Our cover star this week is the Aston Martin Vantage, which, after the DB11, leads Aston Martin's product offensive, alongside - gasp - hybrid models and a crossover. 

There's more good news for supercar fans because we've got a full road test of the McLaren 570S, too. 

Being the New York motor show special, there is, of course, all the latest news from the New York motor show, including the Mazda MX-5 RF and no fewer than 14 other stars of the show. 

Also in this issue: 

We've been behind the wheel of the DS 3 Performance: does it have what it takes to dethrone other, more established cars in the hot hatch segment? 

The BTCC season is almost upon us, so we take a closer look at one of the new entrants, the Subaru Levorg.

Also find out what's in store for PSA as it eyes growth and boss Carlos Tavares reveals stage two of his expansion plan for the French car making group.

Our long-term test cars:

It's time to part ways with our Ford Focus long-termer, we take our Honda Civic Type R for a leg-stretching track day and Jim Holder enjoys a family holiday in the Vauxhall Astra

Deals: 

This week James Ruppert gets into the nitty-gritty of running costs and explains why used buyers should snap up depreciated luxo-barges while they still can. Danni Bagnall brings us the best compact VWs for a sub-£10k budget.
