Everything we've come to love about new-age Volvos in a smaller size
It defines this sector and should be its default buy. You simply can’t go wrong.
Colourful character in a muted part of the market
Bigger and better than ever, the Superb offers a whole lot of car for the cash.
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
A big French saloon might be an oddball choice, but the 508 looks bold, feels good and drives (mostly) well
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.
Mazda’s new 3 family hatch: low on excitement, high on quiet satisfaction
New Insignia ticks every cost-effective box, and is much more refined than before. Still tricky to be enthusiastic about, though
Not the best car in this uninspiring, fleet-orientated end of the segment but a very worthy effort.
A safe, sensible, comfortable saloon. Not a patch on the latest BMW 3-Series, though.

Better than before with faint Lexus stylings on the exterior but still not very interesting. At all. There are better options.
There’s nothing wrong with the Volkswagen Jetta, but why on earth would you get one when the Golf is so much more versatile?
