The Mini is an excellent hatch, but does it have to be so grown up?
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
Not revolutionary, but Q2 is different enough to make you stand out in a crowd.
Not the perfect solution to all your motoring needs, but a great first effort at a useable everyday hybrid.
Incredibly competent, deceptively fast, but needs to be at warp speed before it gets interesting.
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.
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.
Jaguar said its SUVs made new estate cars pointless. It’s built one anyway, and it’s mostly a success.
The new 5 Series is as good to drive as the BMW image, and yet it's as refined and plush as a Mercedes E-Class.
The X3 has never done BMW much credit, but the new one is a thorough enough job to take on the class best
Another crushingly good effort from Audi. The new A6 Avant is a one-stop shop for family life
The Velar majors on style but it's still a useful car. It's roomy enough for a family, not so big it's awkward in cities, and capable of unusual off-road feats.
The VW faces an uphill struggle against brand laden rivals, but is actually just as good.
The consummate big family SUV. Spectacular off-road, now better on it, but is it just too Range Rover for its own good?
Great to look at, good to drive. Whoever would have thought a limo-length five-door hatchback/coupe thing would work so well?
