The best 21st Century MG yet. Other faint praise is available
The looks might be polarising but it's not actually ugly and certainly not – bigger crime – bland
The Suzuki Jimny is a tiny, cheap and rival-free hardcore off-roader. Does what it does quite brilliantly. Does everything else appallingly.
A supremely desirable, futuristic ‘mini with a powertrain for everyone. Just beware the firm ride
A very rational car in standard form, which will make your life easy, but not exciting. The i30 N hot hatch manages to make it easy AND exciting. It's ace
Another worthy crossover. Comfy, roomy, but not especially interesting
Looks great, feels classy. Worth a look, Volkswagen and Ford owners.
There are many good mini-SUVs on the market. The Mokka isn’t one of them. We advise a trip to a Skoda dealership.
Not as far behind the Ford Focus as you might think. Vauxhall's facelifted hatch is a very competent thing... but an all-new one lurks around the corner.
Colourful character in a muted part of the market
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.
Just what the market ordered. Stylish crossover for people who don't need family space. But don't dig too deep beyond that
While still a comfy, useful hatchback, the C4 Cactus's move mainstream has taken away its class hero status
A perfect illustration of why the world is being taken over by crossovers.
Not revolutionary, but Q2 is different enough to make you stand out in a crowd.
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
Lots of crossover showroom appeal, and lives up to it out on the road.
Jaguar’s little crossover aims to storm a competitive set with F-Type-inspired looks inside and out, and an engaging drive
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.
