Not a marketing exercise but an awesome machine.
The Sandero is deservedly doing well: a reasonable car for a frankly astonishing price.
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.
The Mini is an excellent hatch, but does it have to be so grown up?
Citroen's Fiat Panda - character over driving thrills, but none the worse for that.
Cracking supermini is one of the best cars Ford makes. Britain’s top seller? It makes you proud.
A coupe that majors on comfort and luxury. Unless you go for the C63 AMG, in which case it's NUTS
If it ain't broke, don't fix it; updated Captur is still one of the better small crossovers on sale
If you need a roomy supermini this is about your last stop before a Honda Jazz. But it lacks the involvement of some older superminis.
Vauxhall has turned the Corsa into a class-competitive contender.
If you like driving, and like small cars, you'll love the Mazda 2.
It's a sizeable leap, and enough to shove the Polo up to the upper reaches of the supermini order.
Good but not great supermini for dynamics, but a thoroughly enjoyable object
Cheery and characterful, the new Clio is a genuinely appealing supermini.
Superb design and refinement cloak a nondescript driving experience. Again.
Peugeot has a hit on its hands with the good looking and cheerily willing 208.
The 2008 is a proper little mashup, which just about works.
Far better looking than the old 1 Series Coupe. Driving and owning qualities mark it out as a real BMW.
Looks good, lowers the heart rate and comes with some reasonably cost-effective engines. A winning combination
A far-reaching facelift has improved it, but it's still not a match for the class best. At least you can now justify it.
It's engine range isn't class leading, but overlook that and the Micra is a massively improved contender
Not as fresh as it was, but ageing gracefully, and still the best DS of the bunch.
