Not a marketing exercise but an awesome machine.
The V60 is a sensible, safe Volvo, just as you’d expect. The estate car of choice if comfort means more to you than handling
A safe way to move a family around in style.
The long-awaited baby Jag doesn’t disappoint. It needed to be right. It is. Now it has to deliver sales.
Less inviting to own than a Mercedes C-coupe, but scores points with excellent driving dynamics, a strong range, well laid-out cabin and class-best infotainment.
The default four-seat cabrio. Excellent engines and quality, impressive metal roof too.
Rivals keep it from a better score, but the new 3 is still one of the benchmarks for this class
Manages to serve up a zingy new style that hardly compromises its space or usefulness
Meet the new C-Class, same as the old C-Class: comfy, techy and classy
A coupe that majors on comfort and luxury. Unless you go for the C63 AMG, in which case it's NUTS
Classy, sensible and easy to live with. Not the most exciting small estate on sale, but possibly the most well-rounded
Mercedes nails it. The C-Class cabrio is pleasant to drive but majors on open-top relaxation
If you like the baroque styling and can find a dealer, go for it.
Not quite a Discovery rival, but offers plenty of space for the cash
As green as cars get these days, the V60 Plug-in has the best of both worlds – pace and economy.
A likeable thing. Go for a higher powertrain and it makes most sense.
Biggest Mini yet is the least fun to drive. But new Countryman has practicality on its side.
A good car in a class of great ones
Jaguar said its SUVs made new estate cars pointless. It’s built one anyway, and it’s mostly a success.
Not much different to the A-Class, but that's OK. Why mess with a successful formula?
Comfy and quiet yet brilliant to drive. The handling-nerd's car in this class
Has the makings of a great family car, if lacking a little excitement
