It’ll be difficult to miss the cover of the February 2022 edition of Diesel&EcoCar, with the Mercedes-Benz EQXX taking pride of place. Read all about its cutting-edge technology that will mean a driving range of more than 600 miles and solar panels on the roof that can add up to 16 miles of driving range. There’s also news of the facelifted Citroën C5 Aircross, BMW’s ix M60 and a swathe of new Toyota and Lexus models set to electrify its model range over the next few years. Our five-page feature examines each of the new pure-electric vehicles.

We have a close-run group test, with new Honda’s HR-V taking on the Renault Arkana and Toyota C-HR. Which one of the trio grabs the top spot – you may be surprised! We’ve also tested the Kia Sportage in left-hand drive guise and put the Genesis G70 Shooting Brake through its paces. BMW’s ix electric SUV impressed our tester immensely, and we get behind the wheel of the facelifted edition of the Volkswagen Polo. New additions to the long-term fleet include the Hyundai i30 and Peugeot 5008, just as we wave goodbye to our Citroën C4. Our tuning and modifying section examine the Vauxhall Astra 2.0 CDTi and BiTurbo and how it can be upgraded for extra thrills and spills.

The newly refreshed Buying and Selling section has a packed used car buyer’s guide on the facelifted first-generation Peugeot 2008 BlueHDi 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 introduce 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.
