A great little coupe that looks and feels sharper than ever
Facelifted Audi Roadster features revised engines, tweaked visuals – and very little amusement
If the Elise were music, it would be blues. Raw, emotional, stripped back and pared-down.
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.
Big, comfy and tech-heavy, but plain and ultimately unremarkable.
Goes in a different direction to the German alternatives, with convincing success.
A saloon car for people who don’t really care about/enjoy driving, but quite like big mpg and a nice stereo
Superb design and refinement cloak a nondescript driving experience. Again.
Beautifully built and beautiful to look at. But the A4 is 98 per cent as good, cheaper and less pretentious.
Has the makings of a great family car, if lacking a little excitement
The V60 is a sensible, safe Volvo, just as you’d expect. The estate car of choice if comfort means more to you than handling
As green as cars get these days, the V60 Plug-in has the best of both worlds – pace and economy.
There’s no rationalising the Morgan 3-Wheeler, which is a massive part of its appeal. Take it at face value and love it.
Every Lexus trait wrapped up in a tight 3 Series sized package. Superb design, forgettable to drive, probably quite nice to own.
The best car in its class. New engine is so good, it earns it an extra point
A big step up from the old one, but still overshadowed by the brilliant S-Max.
More useful than the biggest estates, and good to drive. Avoid the SUV rat-race.
The Peugeot 508 SW is a better car than the Citroen C5 Tourer it shares its chassis with.
Not the most rounded family estate, but the big Pug oozes desirability. Much cooler than a 3 Series
Not as refined as a Freelander, but a hard-working, honest car that will never let you down
Like your cars straightforward, fuss-free, and practical? You’ll really like this. (Very) quietly excellent without ever being memorable.
It’s brilliant. But only up to a point. Pity. It could be so much better...
