Kelsey Media is introducing a new magazine dedicated to affordable cars. Say hello to the new Car Mechanics Bargain Cars magazine. 

With many car buyers understandably keen to keep a tighter rein on their spending at present, the world of big deposits, monthly payments and crippling balloon sums associated with premium new vehicles suddenly doesn’t look as attractive. But that doesn’t mean you can’t experience similar levels of class, style and performance without breaking the bank – and a brand-new monthly magazine is here to show you how.

Car Mechanics Bargain Cars will join the Kelsey Media portfolio alongside its sister title Car Mechanics, a 62-year-old publication. The exciting new 52-page title will reflect the growing popularity of modern classics and premium used cars, with information and advice on how to beat the system and get yourself into a vehicle that can convincingly rival a current model but for a fraction of the outlay. It will cover iconic and desirable vehicles from the 1990s, 2000s and beyond, spanning a wide range of makes and models to suit all tastes.

There’s plenty of experience to guide you too; the magazine will be edited by former Car Mechanics editor Peter Simpson, with support from well-known expert automotive writers. The launch issue will be on sale next month, and you can get it free if you subscribe for a mere £19.99 every six months – visit for more information.
