Elsewhere in the issue, Chris Harris talks about the prevalence of car tech and Rory Reid compares hypercars to a fine steak in their new columns. New features include our Top 10 Things (you need to know this month): a one-stop shop for this month’s biggest news, including a look at the high-tech Range Rover Velar and the ultra-clever Ford Fiesta ST.

For those of you that need convincing, we’ve given six reasons to watch F1 this season in a post-Bernie world, including insight from our own Eddie Jordan. We also grab an exclusive interview with Wolfgang Dürheimer, the boss of Bugatti and Bentley, and there’s an in-depth look at the McLaren 720S.

We head to the furthermost reaches of the Canadian Arctic to test the limits of the Jeep Grand Cherokee on the Tuktoyaktuk ice road. And if that weren’t risky enough, we sent a TG staffer to Sweden to support Hyundai’s world rally team – well, they needed a spare mechanic.

In our group test we put the BMW 5 Series up against its executive counterparts the Volvo S90, Mercedes-Benz E220d and Jaguar XF. And we have a first drive of the hotly anticipated Alfa Romeo Stelvio.
