Steve Cropley embarks on an epic drive from Gaydon to Marrakesh in the latest iteration Range Rover. Our ten-page First Drive assesses every aspect of the ultimate SUV, before Cropley delivers his long-awaited verdict.

Also, catch up with the latest news stories, including: Bentley gives the Flying Spur a sporty makeover; Mercedes plans a drop-top S-class; Tesla eyes replacement for its electric roadster; Cadillac’s new design chief on why he’s keen to retain the brand’s current design language and how Audi is taking the next TT back to its roots.

This week's issue also features an update on Ford's European restructuring programme and a full report on all the car unveilings at the Sao Paulo motor show in Brazil. Plus the Jaguar XF Sportbrake is given our full Road Test treatment.

In our Our Cars section, we take delivery of a magnificent Aston Martin V8 Vantage, plus progress checks on our Renault Twizy, Seat Mii, Alpina D5 Biturbo, BMW 320d, Mazda CX-5 and Subaru XV.

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

I think we can all guess what the road test verdict will be on the XF Sportbrake. Top of the class and 5 stars.
