Great-looking, great to drive new Volvo should be a fine car to own.
Perhaps it isn’t as stirring as Alfas of the past, but this time who knows, you might actually buy one.
A luxurious, quiet, efficient and durable crossover
Buy it for the looks and lifestyle, then put up with the flaws. Likeable, but irrational
Cheap and practical. But there are better cars out there that do much the same thing.
Suffers from exactly the same flaw as every other Infiniti – the only reason you’d buy one is because it’s rare-groove different. Not necessarily better.
A perfectly able family hatchback that brings absolutely nothing new to the sector. Why, Nissan?
Solid, gimmick-free all-rounder that’s slightly less good at everything than a Golf, but cheaper for it.
Buy without regret: the 3 drives as well as it looks. Very nicely balanced indeed.
Seat’s strongest car in a long time, the Leon is now a Golf-baiting player.
A very rational car in standard form, which will make your life easy, but not exciting. The i30 N hot hatch manages to make it easy AND exciting. It's ace
It defines this sector and should be its default buy. You simply can’t go wrong.
This Focus, if you get the better rear suspension, is the sweetest drive in the mainstream hatch class
The consummate big family SUV. Spectacular off-road, now better on it, but is it just too Range Rover for its own good?
More an SUV than a soft-roader. Patchy dynamics but well finished and has good off-road ability
Neither revolutionary in style nor the most exciting to drive, but a very mature car
Colourful character in a muted part of the market
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.
The Astra re-thought. It works at providing what real people really want.
Good looking, spacious and well equipped, but it’s missing on that oh-so-important ‘buy-me’ factor...
Connectivity and interior layout takes priority over how it drives. For some, that'll be perfect
A job well done. The Golf is better, but not by much.
