Superb family all-rounder will politely give rivals a bloody nose
More useful than the biggest estates, and good to drive. Avoid the SUV rat-race.
A Top Gear award winner in 2016, and rightly so – Skoda’s big crossover is all things to all families.
Manages to serve up a zingy new style that hardly compromises its space or usefulness
Not as cheap as you’d expect, but still one of the best hot hatches on sale
An SUV that rightfully ignores sportiness and focuses on comfort, flexibility and downright classiness
A likeable thing. Go for a higher powertrain and it makes most sense.
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...
Much better to drive than the A-Class it’s based on, plus it’s more useful than the saloon. Buy one of these, not a crossover
Seat’s strongest car in a long time, the Leon is now a Golf-baiting player.
Judged appropriately, the Plus 4 is a charming tonic to the grumpy, cynical modern world
The Clubman has charm but, although roomier, it’s not as fun to drive as it was.
A refreshing niche that ain’t a crossover, but not as sporty as billed
