The best 21st Century MG yet. Other faint praise is available
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.
As sensible and tasty as a dry cracker. A decent enough car, perhaps one for the Freedom Pass brigade.
Great-looking, great to drive new Volvo should be a fine car to own.
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.
The Sandero is deservedly doing well: a reasonable car for a frankly astonishing price.
An appliance carefully targeted at people who are uninterested in cars.
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.
It's a sizeable leap, and enough to shove the Polo up to the upper reaches of the supermini order.
Solid, gimmick-free all-rounder that’s slightly less good at everything than a Golf, but cheaper for it.
Italophiles will get some kicks here, but this is an average effort that is easily trumped for comparable money.
It's engine range isn't class leading, but overlook that and the Micra is a massively improved contender
Not quite the awful snotter we were expecting. But it is ruined by an awful engine.
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.
If you like driving, and like small cars, you'll love the Mazda 2.
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
