The best 21st Century MG yet. Other faint praise is available
Far from M Division’s finest hour. Fast, but you couldn’t live with the ride
Probably Fiat’s least interesting car, but that doesn’t mean it’s worth ignoring if you love a bargain.
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?
If you like driving, and like small cars, you'll love the Mazda 2.
More efficient and effective car than its predecessors, just not quite as exciting
Go ahead if you like the look of it. If you don't, endless rivals are about as good.
It's divisive but, judging by sales, in a good way. Another Nissan crossover success.
Not sexy, not fun, not a heartstring-tugger, but by gum is this a clever car. Brilliantly fit for purpose
Great chassis, great interior but so-so powertrain – the Subaru Impreza remains an oddball
Another convincing effort from Hyundai and a tempting alternative to the more obvious Mondeo.
Hyundai arrives to worry the Ford Mondeo – and the impressive i40 certainly does that.
Sensible and worthy, but pretty desirable too. Tons of room in the back, but little driving fun to be had
A Rolls-Royce for our more economically aware times. Yeah right...
More room in the back, more gadgets, more better. Limo luxe
A far better car than it needs to be at the price, and we love it for that.
All-new CR-V is a big step up. Not perfect, but a worthy rival to the best in this class
True to Jeep's off-road roots, but we'd like more attention on the interior and refinement, please
Not quite as convincing as the larger S-Max, but it's now not all that far off.
It’s not that the ASX is truly bad by any stretch of the imagination, it’s just that its competition is newer. And better.
