The Mini is an excellent hatch, but does it have to be so grown up?
A surprisingly rounded EV. Still fun to drive, and uncompromised inside, but it’s likely to be your second car
Colourful character in a muted part of the market
Just what the market ordered. Stylish crossover for people who don't need family space. But don't dig too deep beyond that
The Clubman has charm but, although roomier, it’s not as fun to drive as it was.
The Q2 is pleasingly bold on the surface, but plays with a very safe bat beneath it
Not the perfect solution to all your motoring needs, but a great first effort at a useable everyday hybrid.
Fussy design inside and out doesn’t spoil a really rather good family hatchback
The definitive example of rock-solid, sensible, impeccable German engineering
Biggest Mini yet is the least fun to drive. But new Countryman has practicality on its side.
The Grandland X is a good car, but not a great car. However, that doesn’t matter so much in the SUV class
The Megane RS has a newfound maturity. Better for tackling the Golf GTI, worse for tackling your local trackday
Jaguar’s little crossover aims to storm a competitive set with F-Type-inspired looks inside and out, and an engaging drive
A car that returns to trade on past glories. The game's moved on, Subaru.
Land Rover plays with a winning formula just enough. The Evoque remains a stylish, accomplished choice
The Evoque is pretty much all we hoped it’d be, a crossover to fall for.
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.
An outstandingly sorted car, but something tells us you’ve already made your mind up about liking the 4 Series or not
In isolation, the Jaguar XF is a good car. But against an immensely talented - and varied - crop of rivals, it falls a little short
Jaguar said its SUVs made new estate cars pointless. It’s built one anyway, and it’s mostly a success.
It's comfy, it drives well, it's got performance *and* eco options... There's really not much to criticise
Typically BMW for its sheer composure on the road and fine refinement.
