Summer 2014
Welcome...

It’s time to have fun in the sun.

   And so we’ve dedicated this summer issue to rediscovering the thrills of motoring. Although we can’t promise sunshine, we know that there’s no better way to get out and about than the convenience and freedom of four wheels.

   So we’ve tested five of the best cars for putting a smile on your face, we’ve reviewed five of the best European cycle trails that you can get to easily by car and we’ve uncovered five of the best vineyards to explore right here on British soil.

   We also look ahead to the exciting future of motoring, with cars that change shape and drive themselves.

   Plus, we give you some vital advice on staying safe if you break down. And there’s plenty more to enjoy.
