Everything we've come to love about new-age Volvos in a smaller size
Every bit as convincing as the VW California. What is loses in the finer packaging details, it makes up for in quality and design.
An excellent and eminently practical car from Ford. Clever design, good to drive.
MPV sales are down, but the stylish Scenic has every chance of reversing the trend.
Hyundai arrives to worry the Ford Mondeo – and the impressive i40 certainly does that.
A big French saloon might be an oddball choice, but the 508 looks bold, feels good and drives (mostly) well
Seat’s most complete car. It has no real weaknesses – but we just know you’d rather have the VW…
Another good Mazda from one of the very few car companies – any company, come to that – which simply doesn’t make a bad product
Not quite as convincing as the larger S-Max, but it's now not all that far off.
Volkswagen serves up more of the same and it's now better than ever.
It’s big, expensive and not especially clever, but it is really, really good at ferrying lots of people about. Really, really quietly.
New Insignia ticks every cost-effective box, and is much more refined than before. Still tricky to be enthusiastic about, though
It presents enough rational arguments that it'll insinuate itself deep into many families' lives.
Better than the car it replaces, but not interesting, exciting or memorable.
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...
Every Lexus trait wrapped up in a tight 3 Series sized package. Superb design, forgettable to drive, probably quite nice to own.
A safe, sensible, comfortable saloon. Not a patch on the latest BMW 3-Series, though.
Not the best car in this uninspiring, fleet-orientated end of the segment but a very worthy effort.
A Seat that takes the brand back to its roots, the Toledo is unassuming but able.
Better than before with faint Lexus stylings on the exterior but still not very interesting. At all. There are better options.
