The best 21st Century MG yet. Other faint praise is available
Better than the car it replaces, but not interesting, exciting or memorable.
Probably Fiat’s least interesting car, but that doesn’t mean it’s worth ignoring if you love a bargain.
Skoda’s kept all of what we loved about the old Superb (size, space, value) and added updated interior tech and a genuinely stylish body. Verging on genius
Bigger and better than ever, the Superb offers a whole lot of car for the cash.
Facelifted Sportage gains mild hybrid diesel tech, but it’s not enough to radically alter the class landscape
MPV sales are down, but the stylish Scenic has every chance of reversing the trend.
A safe, sensible, comfortable saloon. Not a patch on the latest BMW 3-Series, though.
Everything we've come to love about new-age Volvos in a smaller size
Well done Audi, this one's a proper little stonker: fast, small, fun, a 4wd hot hatch done properly.
Jeep’s tough-look new Renegade brings much-needed brand kudos.
Buy it for the looks and lifestyle, then put up with the flaws. Likeable, but irrational
Cheap and practical. But there are better cars out there that do much the same thing.
The Evoque is pretty much all we hoped it’d be, a crossover to fall for.
Land Rover plays with a winning formula just enough. The Evoque remains a stylish, accomplished choice
One of Britain’s best-selling cars, the Qashqai is quiety, comfy and homemade, too
Suffers from exactly the same flaw as every other Infiniti – the only reason you’d buy one is because it’s rare-groove different. Not necessarily better.
A perfectly able family hatchback that brings absolutely nothing new to the sector. Why, Nissan?
Like your cars straightforward, fuss-free, and practical? You’ll really like this. (Very) quietly excellent without ever being memorable.
At a stretch, we can see a point to the 4WD versions, but really though, this is an unnecessary diversion. And not a very pretty one, either.
Italophiles will get some kicks here, but this is an average effort that is easily trumped for comparable money.
Looks great, feels classy. Worth a look, Volkswagen and Ford owners.
