On the cover of the January 2022 edition of Diesel&EcoCar is the second-generation Kia Niro, a vehicle that is expected to be one of the biggest selling electric cars in the coming years, just as the outgoing model has been a pioneer of the sector.

Hyundai’s Ioniq 5 clashes with the Mercedes-Benz EQA in this month’s twin test, both providing different solutions to the electric vehicle problem. Which one wins in this pure electric brawl? We’ve also been driving right-hand drive editions of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo and Jeep Compass 4xe, and our testers have tested the Renault Captur Hybrid for the first time.

The newly refreshed Buying and Selling section has a packed used car buyer’s guide on the Mazda CX-3 diesel and you’ll notice that right across the magazine, there’s been a wash and brush up to sharpen up the content, as well as the newly truncated Diesel&EcoCar name. We’ve been working particularly hard on clarity and legibility and believe that it is now better than ever. There are all your favourites from before the facelift, including The Doctor, Bright Spark, Tech Zone, Legal i, Current Affairs and Gadget Inspector. There’s also the most comprehensive and up-to-date date section in the business, with added content, too.
