MOTOR Magazine December 2017 issue preview

By Chris Thompson, 02 Nov 2017 News

MOTOR September 2017 cover

Here’s your look inside one of our most anticipated issues of the year

You might have already seen ‘STINGER VS SS’ written on the cover of our December issue, which goes on sale today.

That’s because this is the issue in which we answer one of the biggest questions for Aussie motorists for 2017 – can the Kia Stinger replace the Holden Commodore?

We’ll let you read the comparison and find out for yourself but, in the meantime, have a scroll below to see what else MOTOR’s December issue can offer you.
