It depends on what you're looking for. I've subscribed to the 4 big American car magazines for over 10 years (always with these $4 deals). Here's my take based on current direction:

Road&Track: The most beautiful photos. The least content (literally the lightest). More coverage about racing than the other 3 magazines. I don't recommend it if you don't care about racing.

Automobile: Used to have some decent writing. Editorial stuff is not bad. Seems to be moving toward focusing on used cars and antiques (auction stuff).

Motor Trend: The most content by far (photos, review), but feels superficial and written by bloggers and non-professional people.

Car&Driver: The best quality writing by far. Actual car reviews are not better/worse than the 3 magazines (how many different ways can you talk about a car's handling and horse power??) This is my favorite because I enjoy the quality writing and the social/political aspect of cars and driving. My guess is that if your political opinions differs from some of their writings, you won't enjoy it. I think the letters/feedback section is worth the $4 a year.

I also want to add: Magazines are on their way out. You can always go on the internet and get the latest technical info and reviews (written, photo, video) from professional and less-than-professionals. There are forums for opinions and discussions on various aspects. I still read some of these magazines, but only when I'm flying and can't easily access my phone/tablet...

I recently switched from a 4 year Motor Trend to a 4 year Car and Driver sub and I'm not as happy. Is Road & Track any better than both?

I've always like R&T, but some of their writers can be pretty lame, especially in those little side pieces that aren't directly about a car.

You can always find information about these cars on the Internet, but the writing will never match that of a good magazine article. The vocabulary used and imagery created in a car magazine is hard to find elsewhere.

I prefer R&T over the ones you mentioned.
Of note, R&T appointed Travis Okulski (formerly of Jalopnik) to the EIC position, and he's been shaking things up a bit. He's said they will emphasize longer-form storytelling vs. stats/quick reviews, to differentiate themselves from the blogs. If you haven't checked them out in recent months, it's worth seeing if their new style is more to your taste.

Thanks for sharing your input. I no longer care about racing so I'll avoid R&T. I haven't really
noticed anything political with C&D but then again I only read it in little bits at a time.

Personally I'd pay 12 bucks just to read Bob Lutz' comments on the last page of R&T. Such a wealth of knowledge and usually pretty funny.

Note: All of the magazines run very similar stories. I had all the subscriptions previously, and if one did a new Lamborghini, next month the other magazine did the same one (different photos and article). Probably because they've consolidated so hard in the digital economy?

Autoweek is gonzo. I liked their funny pics at the end.

I miss the freebie subs too. Haven't seen any lately?

This analysis is so spot on. I did not renew my Automobile and Road & Track subscriptions when they finally ran out. Honestly, they just weren't as fun to read.

After Autoweek went under last month, I need a new magazine to replace it.

Still have RT and CD from Recycle Bank rewards but I might extend them via this deal
