The best 21st Century MG yet. Other faint praise is available
Great-looking, great to drive new Volvo should be a fine car to own.
Will shake up the city car segment and could become a game-changer for the whole class.
As entertaining and satisfying as the old Twingo was mundane and mediocre.
Probably Fiat’s least interesting car, but that doesn’t mean it’s worth ignoring if you love a bargain.
New Soul puts practicality to the fore, but in other areas less progress has been made.
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?
It won't trouble the cream of the three-door hatch brigade, but it's a mighty good effort, and looks fantastic.
Another string to Kia’s ever more impressive bow, the Picanto is a fun and interesting city car.
Better than ever, the Fiat Panda is still a worthy rival to the VW Up.
Solid, gimmick-free all-rounder that’s slightly less good at everything than a Golf, but cheaper for it.
Expensive, slow, horrid to drive. A mass of metal without sense or relish or ability or anything, really.
Like the Skoda Citigo, a cheaper VW Up — a winner, in other words.
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
City car that feels more grown up than its size would suggest. Hyundai has hit on a winner here.
