Not a marketing exercise but an awesome machine.
The long-awaited baby Jag doesn’t disappoint. It needed to be right. It is. Now it has to deliver sales.
Rivals keep it from a better score, but the new 3 is still one of the benchmarks for this class
A coupe that majors on comfort and luxury. Unless you go for the C63 AMG, in which case it's NUTS
Audi rejects agility in favour of comfort. The result is the best A4 ever.
Less inviting to own than a Mercedes C-coupe, but scores points with excellent driving dynamics, a strong range, well laid-out cabin and class-best infotainment.
If you like the baroque styling and can find a dealer, go for it.
Another good Mazda from one of the very few car companies – any company, come to that – which simply doesn’t make a bad product
Far better looking than the old 1 Series Coupe. Driving and owning qualities mark it out as a real BMW.
Hyundai arrives to worry the Ford Mondeo – and the impressive i40 certainly does that.
Comfy and quiet yet brilliant to drive. The handling-nerd's car in this class
Volkswagen serves up more of the same and it's now better than ever.
New Insignia ticks every cost-effective box, and is much more refined than before. Still tricky to be enthusiastic about, though
If the Passat is too dull but you still have a sensible side, the CC could be just the car for you
Every Lexus trait wrapped up in a tight 3 Series sized package. Superb design, forgettable to drive, probably quite nice to own.
Forget the Magentis, this is a big Kia that's actually appealing. But so too is the cheaper Hyundai i40...
Not the best car in this uninspiring, fleet-orientated end of the segment but a very worthy effort.
A saloon car for people who don’t really care about/enjoy driving, but quite like big mpg and a nice stereo
At a stretch, we can see a point to the 4WD versions, but really though, this is an unnecessary diversion. And not a very pretty one, either.
There’s nothing wrong with the Volkswagen Jetta, but why on earth would you get one when the Golf is so much more versatile?
Better than before with faint Lexus stylings on the exterior but still not very interesting. At all. There are better options.
