The Mini is an excellent hatch, but does it have to be so grown up?
Beautifully built and beautiful to look at. But the A4 is 98 per cent as good, cheaper and less pretentious.
Well thought out, versatile and thoroughly decent family estate. The weeniest bit boring
Solid, gimmick-free all-rounder that’s slightly less good at everything than a Golf, but cheaper for it.
Not the most rounded family estate, but the big Pug oozes desirability. Much cooler than a 3 Series
The Peugeot 508 SW is a better car than the Citroen C5 Tourer it shares its chassis with.
