WHAT CAR? names best buys of 2013


What Car? today names Britain’s best cars to buy in 2013

– a car for everyone, whatever their needs, and at prices for every budget.


At a time when car sales are on the up again, buyers face an increasingly bewildering array of makes and model to choose from, so our choices can help people buy the right car for them, at the right price.

What Car? editor-in-chief Chas Hallett said: “We hope that naming Britain’s best cars so early in the year will help car buyers decide what car is best for them.

“As well as providing the What Car? Target Price* – a researched and achievable discount price they should aim for, we would also encourage consumers to try the What Car? True MPG web tool that will provide realistic fuel consumption figures.”
