This week’s issue of Autocar magazine, which is available to buy in the shops and via download now, assesses the kind of dilemmas that can keep daydreaming car enthusiasts occupied for weeks.
Should you go for a brand new car, weighing up the thrill of owning a pristine motor against the ever-present spectre of crippling depreciation? Or should you buy wisely, getting the maximum bang for your buck by choosing a second-hand purchase after letting some other mug take the initial hit?
We’ve pitched a collection of the best new cars on the market today up against second-hand rivals from a similar price point.
Should your money go on a new Porsche Cayman S or a used Lamborghini Gallardo? Does a pristine Aston Martin V12 Vantage make a better buy than a previous owned McLaren MP4-12C?
Our news section kicks off with an analysis of the new Volvo XC90 and what the car means for the Swedish company. The Mercedes-Benz GLK (which is expected to be renamed) has also been confirmed for the UK, and we’ve got the latest details of the model which has previously been denied to prospective customers in right-hand-drive markets.
