A great little coupe that looks and feels sharper than ever
Facelifted Audi Roadster features revised engines, tweaked visuals – and very little amusement
If you really, truly care about driving, the Lotus Elise is about as obvious an answer as water being wet and fire being hot
Goes in a different direction to the German alternatives, with convincing success.
It’s a seductive car, the new A5 Cabriolet, and while more dynamically accomplished than its predecessor, still more of a grand touring boulevardier rather than a B-road hustler. But what an ownership proposition.
Beautifully built and beautiful to look at. But the A4 is 98 per cent as good, cheaper and less pretentious.
Superb design and refinement cloak a nondescript driving experience. Again.
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.
The simplest and most exciting Toyota in years is also a real pleasure to drive
A likeable thing. Go for a higher powertrain and it makes most sense.
The latest Tiguan feels solid, sensible and laser-guided at its target market
A refreshing niche that ain’t a crossover, but not as sporty as billed
Suffers from exactly the same flaw as every other Infiniti – the only reason you’d buy one is because it’s rare-groove different. Not necessarily better.
Well thought out, versatile and thoroughly decent family estate. The weeniest bit boring
Not the best car in this uninspiring, fleet-orientated end of the segment but a very worthy effort.
New Insignia ticks every cost-effective box, and is much more refined than before. Still tricky to be enthusiastic about, though
A cute, fine little convertible. Although the emphasis is on the little: the boot is tiny and the interior packaging is odd.
Solid, gimmick-free all-rounder that’s slightly less good at everything than a Golf, but cheaper for it.
Kia improves things yet again. Refinement, styling and interior quality are nearly as good as anything out there. Nearly…
It defines this sector and should be its default buy. You simply can’t go wrong.
Overlook the fact it’s so good that it’s almost joyless: the latest Golf GTI is very desirable indeed.
