Wheels mag April 2023: Kia EV9 detailed, GR Corolla faces rivals & more!

It's an all-out pre-emptive strike from Korea as we headline this issue with the groundbreaking Kia EV9, the bold SsangYong Torres, a first drive of Hyundai's game-changing Ioniq 5 N and the progress so far on Hyundai's ute project

Whether you're looking for guidance on your next family hauler or it's only power you're after, the April 2023 issue of Wheels has you covered.

This month, we send Daniel Gardner to Scotland in winter – not because we dislike him, but because he gets to drive the new Ineos Grenadier.

Meanwhile, Andy Enright is dispatched to the Middle East to drive the car that vacated the Grenadier's position, the long-wheelbase Land Rover Defender 130.

But, fear not – this issue's not all about breakover angles and winch porn.

Johnny Law's put the long-awaited Toyota Corolla GR up against the box-fresh Cupra Leon and the box-arched Subaru WRX while we bring you a Modern Classic feature on the beautiful Nissan 300 ZX Z32.

That's on top of first drives of the Tesla Model Y Performance, the Chery Omoda 5, the GWM Ora and the Subaru Outback Turbo.

There's also news of the Aussie-bound Ford Mustang Mach-E and the not-Aussie-bound Explorer

What's more, we put the new Lexus RX350h up against the trusty Volkswagen Touareg TDI to see whether German diesel brawn beats Japanese hybrid tech.

The new Lamborghini V12, the end of Bentley's W12, retro Corollas and all of your favourite columnists round out the April 2023 issue, on shelves from the 10th April.

Be quick, because this one will vanish fast.
