This week’s issue of Autocar magazine, dated 23 July 2014, assesses one of the most talked-about new cars of the year – the new BMW 2-series Active Tourer.

The family friendly model ushers in the German manufacturer’s new line of front-wheel-drive vehicles, aimed at tempting customers out of away from the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus.

We drive the diesel variant of the 2-series Active Tourer in Austria, and get the low down on BMW’s intentions for the new vehicle from the manufacturer’s sales director Ian Robertson.

Our in-depth road test assesses the new Mercedes-Benz C-class. Can our perennial runner-up in this class behind the BMW 3-series finally reach the top spot? Our expert testers analyse every aspect of the car, from ride and handling through to interior comfort and residual values.

We have our first test in the Lexus NX, the Japanese manufacturer’s mid-size SUV rival for the likes of the BMW X3 and Range Rover Evoque.
