Great-looking, great to drive new Volvo should be a fine car to own.
The B-Class is now a genuine contender – if an expensive one – in the family hatch sector.
Everything we've come to love about new-age Volvos in a smaller size
Mazda’s new 3 family hatch: low on excitement, high on quiet satisfaction
Buy without regret: the 3 drives as well as it looks. Very nicely balanced indeed.
Hyundai arrives to worry the Ford Mondeo – and the impressive i40 certainly does that.
Another good Mazda from one of the very few car companies – any company, come to that – which simply doesn’t make a bad product
Looks great, feels classy. Worth a look, Volkswagen and Ford owners.
New Insignia ticks every cost-effective box, and is much more refined than before. Still tricky to be enthusiastic about, though
Volkswagen serves up more of the same and it's now better than ever.
Kia improves things yet again. Refinement, styling and interior quality are nearly as good as anything out there. Nearly…
BMW's switch from RWD to FWD for the new hatch is no bad thing. This new 1 Series is a good car from the bottom up.
A big French saloon might be an oddball choice, but the 508 looks bold, feels good and drives (mostly) well
If the Passat is too dull but you still have a sensible side, the CC could be just the car for you
Forget the Magentis, this is a big Kia that's actually appealing. But so too is the cheaper Hyundai i40...
The Corolla is back, looking better than ever, but still short on fun
Probably Fiat’s least interesting car, but that doesn’t mean it’s worth ignoring if you love a bargain.
While still a comfy, useful hatchback, the C4 Cactus's move mainstream has taken away its class hero status
It won't trouble the cream of the three-door hatch brigade, but it's a mighty good effort, and looks fantastic.
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.
