The best 21st Century MG yet. Other faint praise is available
Far from M Division’s finest hour. Fast, but you couldn’t live with the ride
Great-looking, great to drive new Volvo should be a fine car to own.
On paper it's a clash of purposes, in reality it's a mouth-watering prospect. Can Lamborghini inject some real supercar DNA into a 2.2-tonne SUV?
Probably Fiat’s least interesting car, but that doesn’t mean it’s worth ignoring if you love a bargain.
Perhaps it isn’t as stirring as Alfas of the past, but this time who knows, you might actually buy one.
Audi serves up a confident, capable hot crossover. Just forgets to add spice
New Soul puts practicality to the fore, but in other areas less progress has been made.
A luxurious, quiet, efficient and durable crossover
A giant, kitted out seven-seat 4x4 for the price of a top-spec Qashqai. Only apply if you like your driving rufty-tufty
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.
Looks great, feels classy. Worth a look, Volkswagen and Ford owners.
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.
Low on excitement, but high on value. Ka+ is a Fiesta on a shoestring budget
Great chassis, great interior but so-so powertrain – the Subaru Impreza remains an oddball
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.
