This week’s edition of Autocar, available on the newstands and as a download tomorrow, reveals Jaguar’s plan to roll out five new models in a bold strategy that aims to treble sales to about 150,000 units per year.

There’s plenty of new metal assessed in the mag’s first drives section. Ford’s revolutionary three-cylinder, 1.0-litre Ecoboost powerplant has been installed in the facelifted Fiesta, and we’ve driven it. Other cars tested include the Lexus LS460, Citroën C5, Mercedes-Benz A180, Audi A8 and Seat Leon.

The Vauxhall Mokka mini-SUV gets an exhaustive going-over from our experts in an eight-page road test.

We expect that many readers will turn straight to our captivating group test, in which the Mk7 Volkswagen Golf is pitched against rivals from Ford, Audi and Volvo. How does the most complete Golf ever stack up against the class standard-bearers? Nic Cackett finds out.

Infiniti’s striking Emerg-e electric supercar has turned heads at motor shows throughout the year, and now we’ve had the chance to get behind the wheel of the prototype. We’ve also driven another EV icon, in the shape of the last Tesla Roadster ever to roll off the production line.

Our used car section investigates how you can buy an Audi A8 luxo-barge for less than £2000.

Other features in this packed issue include a look at engine problems that afflict certain second-hand Porsche 911s (and what to do to remedy them), plus details of how Seat plans to fight back to profit making.

As ever, the magazine is available from all good newsagents or can be downloaded from Zinio or the Apple iTunes store.

The purpose of both memory foam and latex mattresses are to reduce these pressure points, by distributing pressure over a wide surface area.Memory foam has the additional benefit of conforming very closely to the body, and actually "filling gaps" between the body and the mattress surface.Think Outside the "Leading Brand" BoxIf you are even thinking about a memory foam mattress, you undoubtedly know what the famous "leading brand" is.tempurpedic cloud collection Buying a new mattress is no small purchase.Do keep in mind that your tossing and turning may not actually be your natural way of sleeping, but rather a result of inadequate bedding.
