An automobile magazine is a magazine with news and reports on cars and the automobile industry.

Automobile magazines may feature new car tests and comparisons, which describe advantages and disadvantages of similar models; future models speculations, confidential information and "spyshots" (pictures of camouflaged models tested by automakers); modified automobiles; lists of new models with prices, specifications and ratings; used car advertisements; auto racing news and events; and other information.

The first two magazines were launched in November 1895, in the very early days of motoring, the American The Horseless Age,[1] which later became Automotive Industries Magazine and the British The Autocar.
