What would you like for Christmas? How about a £5m Volvo, the new Jaguar XF, all the Autocar staff cars, three of the most serious off-roaders available, and a Routemaster bus for the 21st Century?Sounds like quite a lot to ask, but we've packed it all into the 19 January issue of Autocar:
Christmas Road Test:
Volvo Open 70. "The seagoing equivalent of a Le Mans winner. Brilliant, breathtaking severe."
New Jaguar XF:
"This is no featherbed executive chariot; it's a sports saloon in the spirit of the Mk2."
Land Rover takes on Hummer and Jeep:
"Loud, crude, uncomfortable and constructed with the sort of hand-built inexactitude that would have been familiar to the buyer of a '60s sports car."
Return of the Routemaster:
"Bureaucracy killed off London's iconic bus. But we've commissioned a greener model fit for the noughties."
Road Test Year 2007:
All 100 of this year's road tests, including league tables for wet and dry track times, verdicts and testers highlights.
A year in the life of Autocar's fleet:
"Our 18-strong fleet has racked up 250,000 miles this year, so here's what they'd like under the tree on 25 December."
