Our weekly REV Test episodes involve three different women: Vicki Butler-Henderson, our resident petrolhead and racing driver; Erin Baker, a motoring journalist for 15 years, mother to two boys and step-mother to two more; and Rachael Hogg, Auto Trader's digital editor and Millennial, who likes avocados and pilates and stuff.
Each week, we compare three cars that we know visitors to Auto Trader look for in a group, rather than rivals defined by manufacturers. For example, BMW might tell you
its 3 Series
should be compared with a Mercedes-Benz C-Class
and an Audi A4
, but we know that people searching for a 3 Series most often compare with a Nissan Qashqai
and Ford Focus
We also quote monthly finance costs, not the list price of a car, because we know most people don’t look at list price these days. That’s why Auto Trader launched its search-by-monthly-price tool at the end of last year.
So do tune in to the REV Test weekly, which you can find right here, or on the Auto Trader YouTube channel
Here's everything we've been up to so far.
