Lexus makes a posh compact SUV but forgets to make it drive well.
Ford has gone to work on the updated EcoSport, dragging it from a blot on its record to a class contender
Like your cars straightforward, fuss-free, and practical? You’ll really like this. (Very) quietly excellent without ever being memorable.
Renault’s Qashqai rival is conveniently a rebodied… Qashqai. A fine appliance for family transport
Just what the market ordered. Stylish crossover for people who don't need family space. But don't dig too deep beyond that
The looks might be polarising but it's not actually ugly and certainly not – bigger crime – bland
Well thought out, versatile and thoroughly decent family estate. The weeniest bit boring
All-new CR-V is a big step up. Not perfect, but a worthy rival to the best in this class
Not revolutionary, but Q2 is different enough to make you stand out in a crowd.
Facelifted Sportage gains mild hybrid diesel tech, but it’s not enough to radically alter the class landscape
A first-time entrant from Seat that feels like they’ve been practicing for years.
The Karoq might have lost its predecessor’s personality, but on every other front it’s a better car than the one it replaces
The V60 is a sensible, safe Volvo, just as you’d expect. The estate car of choice if comfort means more to you than handling
For the vast majority of us, the 3 Series Touring is all the car we could use or want
Manages to serve up a zingy new style that hardly compromises its space or usefulness
Another crushingly good effort from Audi. The new A6 Avant is a one-stop shop for family life
Spacious and stylish addition to the growing ranks of school run specials
The new 5 Series is as good to drive as the BMW image, and yet it's as refined and plush as a Mercedes E-Class.
A far better car than it needs to be at the price, and we love it for that.
