Matt Saunders Deputy road test editor

Matt joined Autocar in 2003. After stints on the news, features and web desks, he’s finally got the job he was looking for all along, as part of the road test team. He devotes most of his week to brake disc sizes, bore and stroke measurements and wet weather stopping distances. He frequently indulges in various foolish errands like maxing out a 227mph Brabus Rocket on the autobahn, driving 500 miles across the UK in an electric Mini, or to trade his way to riches out of a £650 Fiat Cinquecento.
