A brilliant answer to the question of eco-friendly urban transport.
Another string to Kia’s ever more impressive bow, the Picanto is a fun and interesting city car.
City car that feels more grown up than its size would suggest. Hyundai has hit on a winner here.
Well rounded, but short on personality and doesn't go far enough.
Toyota has changed more about the little Aygo than you might think, but the dull and rather small cabin keeps it behind the best of the rest
Far, far better than the last one, but still likely to remain a niche purchase.
A Renault Twingo that’s not quite so cool as a Renault Twingo. Sorry.
As entertaining and satisfying as the old Twingo was mundane and mediocre.
Expensive, slow, horrid to drive. A mass of metal without sense or relish or ability or anything, really.
It defines this sector and should be its default buy. You simply can’t go wrong.
Overlook the fact it’s so good that it’s almost joyless: the latest Golf GTI is very desirable indeed.
After a classy cabrio but don't have Audi-like cash? Try this. GTI expensive but worth it; R perhaps not
The e-Golf is an EV that works for most of us, most of the time. A truly convincing electric car.
Epic value from Citroen here. The Berlingo majors on comfort, economical diesels and an enormous interior. Practical.
Only the interior isn't as good as the Golf. Beyond that, there's not a lot to split the Leon ST.
Colourful character in a muted part of the market
The Clubman has charm but, although roomier, it’s not as fun to drive as it was.
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
