CM’s road tests have changed, but you will find the same balanced and unbiased views as before, only in a new visual format, with more information to better reflect the modern purchasing decision. Each vehicle put through a CM road test is rated according to a strict set of parameters. We appreciate that certain factors are likely to hold more influence when it comes to buying a vehicle, which is why some criteria are scored more highly than others. For example, while we realise that safety is important, all vehicles are designed with high safety levels, so elements of the test that are more variable between vehicles, such as payload, are scored more highly than those where industry-wide standards are similar. This way our road tests reward vehicles that perform above expectation and penalise those that fall short. Our fuel economy test routes cover a variety of road types where normal economical driving techniques are employed and speed limits are rigidly observed. All additional testing is carried out at private test tracks using specialist equipment.
