More useful than the biggest estates, and good to drive. Avoid the SUV rat-race.
Manages to serve up a zingy new style that hardly compromises its space or usefulness
A Top Gear award winner in 2016, and rightly so – Skoda’s big crossover is all things to all families.
Not as cheap as you’d expect, but still one of the best hot hatches on sale
Beautifully built and beautiful to look at. But the A4 is 98 per cent as good, cheaper and less pretentious.
Only the interior isn't as good as the Golf. Beyond that, there's not a lot to split the Leon ST.
Biggest Mini yet is the least fun to drive. But new Countryman has practicality on its side.
Good looking, spacious and well equipped, but it’s missing on that oh-so-important ‘buy-me’ factor...
Seat’s strongest car in a long time, the Leon is now a Golf-baiting player.
A cute, fine little convertible. Although the emphasis is on the little: the boot is tiny and the interior packaging is odd.
A refreshing niche that ain’t a crossover, but not as sporty as billed
The Clubman has charm but, although roomier, it’s not as fun to drive as it was.
