This week in Autocar...

This week in Autocar, we look at the car that will set the template for BMW's next electric SUVs, find the best affordable EV in 2024, and ask whether Suzuki has saved the small car.


The BMW Vision Neue Klasse X Concept not only sets the template for the brand's next electric SUVs, but previews a boldly-styled successor for the iX3 - we have all you need to know about its platform, drivetrain and tech.

Staying in Germany, Mercedes has treated the G-Class to a major update, giving it a hybrid power boost, efficiency gains and new technology – including a touchscreen. The AMG G63 has also been given even more power and a sophisticated new suspension system - we bring you the lowdown.


Potholes on UK roads are more rife today than they have ever been, and because councils aren't spending the government's Potholes Fund, only 47% of English and Welsh roads are in a good condition. John Evans gets to the heart of the issue.

Renault is considering reviving the Espace MPV, thanks to the flexibility of the its EV platforms - we show you what it could be like.


Has Suzuki saved the small car with the new Swift? The fourth-gen supermini has been given a fresh look, a new electrified engine and Suzuki’s trademark lightness and compactness. Matt Prior gets behind the wheel.
