Autocar magazine 18 January – out now

This week, how VW will use electric power to make the ultimate Golf GTI, plus we test 100mpg plug-in hybrid heroes and drive an immaculate TVR Griffith 500

In this week’s Autocar magazine we reveal Volkswagen‘s plans to electrifiy its Golf GTI, meet the game-changing Lexus LS and catch a glimpse of the upcoming Vauxhall Crossland X.

There’s also a revealing new report on VW’s Dieselgate scandal and information on a diesel-powered version of the new Kia Stinger. Plus, we get behind the wheel of a three-pot Nissan Micra and drive two Infinitis, the Q50 and Q60.

The Peugeot 3008, in 1.6 BlueHDi GT Line spec, is subjected to a full Autocar road test.

Also in this issue:

We pit three 100mpg plug-in hybrid heroes from Audi, BMW, Volkswagen and Volvo up against each other to find out which should be your motorway mile-muncher.

Then we revisit some of the best models to come out of legendary British sports car maker TVR’s Blackpool factory gates, with a special test in an immaculate Griffith 500.

We also speak to Britain’s WRC star Kris Meeke about his chances for a shot at the 2017 title.

We welcome a £197,150 Bentley Bentayga to our fleet, take our recently repaired DS 3 Performance onto the track and get the Vauxhall Astra serviced.
