Great-looking, great to drive new Volvo should be a fine car to own.
More useful than the biggest estates, and good to drive. Avoid the SUV rat-race.
The B-Class is now a genuine contender – if an expensive one – in the family hatch sector.
Better than the car it replaces, but not interesting, exciting or memorable.
Seat’s most complete car. It has no real weaknesses – but we just know you’d rather have the VW…
Not quite as convincing as the larger S-Max, but it's now not all that far off.
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.
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.
It’s not that the ASX is truly bad by any stretch of the imagination, it’s just that its competition is newer. And better.
