Colourful character in a muted part of the market
It defines this sector and should be its default buy. You simply can’t go wrong.
Bigger and better than ever, the Superb offers a whole lot of car for the cash.
Everything we've come to love about new-age Volvos in a smaller size
Mazda’s new 3 family hatch: low on excitement, high on quiet satisfaction
Buy without regret: the 3 drives as well as it looks. Very nicely balanced indeed.
Looks great, feels classy. Worth a look, Volkswagen and Ford owners.
New Insignia ticks every cost-effective box, and is much more refined than before. Still tricky to be enthusiastic about, though
A very rational car in standard form, which will make your life easy, but not exciting. The i30 N hot hatch manages to make it easy AND exciting. It's ace
A big French saloon might be an oddball choice, but the 508 looks bold, feels good and drives (mostly) well
Low on excitement, but high on value. Ka+ is a Fiesta on a shoestring budget
Forget the Magentis, this is a big Kia that's actually appealing. But so too is the cheaper Hyundai i40...
While still a comfy, useful hatchback, the C4 Cactus's move mainstream has taken away its class hero status

Cheap and practical. But there are better cars out there that do much the same thing.

There’s nothing wrong with the Volkswagen Jetta, but why on earth would you get one when the Golf is so much more versatile?
Better than before with faint Lexus stylings on the exterior but still not very interesting. At all. There are better options.
