Great-looking, great to drive new Volvo should be a fine car to own.
Colourful character in a muted part of the market
The B-Class is now a genuine contender – if an expensive one – in the family hatch sector.
It defines this sector and should be its default buy. You simply can’t go wrong.
Every bit as convincing as the VW California. What is loses in the finer packaging details, it makes up for in quality and design.
Mazda’s new 3 family hatch: low on excitement, high on quiet satisfaction
Buy without regret: the 3 drives as well as it looks. Very nicely balanced indeed.
Not quite as convincing as the larger S-Max, but it's now not all that far off.
This isn’t a luxury sports saloon – it’s a luxury limousine dressed in a rakish, designer suit
Better than the car it replaces, but not interesting, exciting or memorable.
The definitive example of rock-solid, sensible, impeccable German engineering
Seat’s most complete car. It has no real weaknesses – but we just know you’d rather have the VW…
The Astra re-thought. It works at providing what real people really want.
It’s big, expensive and not especially clever, but it is really, really good at ferrying lots of people about. Really, really quietly.
Epic value from Citroen here. The Berlingo majors on comfort, economical diesels and an enormous interior. Practical.
Low on excitement, but high on value. Ka+ is a Fiesta on a shoestring budget
The Corolla is back, looking better than ever, but still short on fun
A beautiful, entertaining and fundamentally different hatch.
Connectivity and interior layout takes priority over how it drives. For some, that'll be perfect
Cosier and more expensive than rivals, but appealing badge and quality
Cheap and practical. But there are better cars out there that do much the same thing.
A perfectly able family hatchback that brings absolutely nothing new to the sector. Why, Nissan?
