The new-look CAR magazine includes these regulars, month in, month out:

The 300-mile test
New cars are launched via carefully managed events designed to show them at their best: perfect roads, easy distances, no drama. CAR's 
new 300-mile test strips away that artificial environment to create a uniquely thorough and gritty test of the month's hottest new car.

The Shortlist
Deciding which car to buy next is every car enthusiast's endless obsession. Shortlist taps into readers' curiosity and passion – their buying dilemmas solved by giving them the unique opportunity to drive the cars on their shopping list with our help.

Coffee with CAR
CAR magazine uses its access to secure time with the automotive world's biggest players, then go for a drive with them – after all, who wants to spend time in a stuffy boardroom? From the CEO of Rolls-Royce to the Californian boffins behind Singer, CAR gets you closer to the automotive world's movers and shakers.

The CAR Giant Test
The world's most authoritative comparison test gets more relevant (now with monthly lease rates, tech analysis and range explainers), deeper and more comprehensive – don't buy a new car before you've read our group tests.

You Drive Our Cars and One Year On
Our cars, the sagas of our long-term test cars, is one of the most popular sections of the magazine. To it we've added You Drive Our Cars – readers with an interest in one of the cars on our fleet, trying it for themselves – and One Year On, the highs and lows of one reader's first year with their new car.
