Vauxhall has turned the Corsa into a class-competitive contender.
Vauxhall has turned the Corsa VXR into a convincing fast pocket rocket.
It's a sizeable leap, and enough to shove the Polo up to the upper reaches of the supermini order.
A far-reaching facelift has improved it, but it's still not a match for the class best. At least you can now justify it.
Neither revolutionary in style nor the most exciting to drive, but a very mature car
Softer and a little disappointing: the new RS isn’t what it was. Still fun, but we hoped for more…
Cheery and characterful, the new Clio is a genuinely appealing supermini.
Cracking supermini is one of the best cars Ford makes. Britain’s top seller? It makes you proud.
It's divisive but, judging by sales, in a good way. Another Nissan crossover success.
The Mini is an excellent hatch, but does it have to be so grown up?
Not as fresh as it was, but ageing gracefully, and still the best DS of the bunch.
Go ahead if you like the look of it. If you don't, endless rivals are about as good.
It won't trouble the cream of the three-door hatch brigade, but it's a mighty good effort, and looks fantastic.
A well-considered first effort from Kia: a hot hatch nicely suited to the everyday real world.
Well done Audi, this one's a proper little stonker: fast, small, fun, a 4wd hot hatch done properly.
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…
At a stretch, we can see a point to the 4WD versions, but really though, this is an unnecessary diversion. And not a very pretty one, either.
A refreshing niche that ain’t a crossover, but not as sporty as billed
Well thought out, versatile and thoroughly decent family estate. The weeniest bit boring
A cute, fine little convertible. Although the emphasis is on the little: the boot is tiny and the interior packaging is odd.
Not the best car in this uninspiring, fleet-orientated end of the segment but a very worthy effort.
The secret’s out - we faked our moon landing. Here’s how we did it
