Everything we've come to love about new-age Volvos in a smaller size
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.
Not quite as convincing as the larger S-Max, but it's now not all that far off.
A big step up from the old one, but still overshadowed by the brilliant S-Max.
Another good Mazda from one of the very few car companies – any company, come to that – which simply doesn’t make a bad product
New Insignia ticks every cost-effective box, and is much more refined than before. Still tricky to be enthusiastic about, though
It’s big, expensive and not especially clever, but it is really, really good at ferrying lots of people about. Really, really quietly.
Better than the car it replaces, but not interesting, exciting or memorable.
It presents enough rational arguments that it'll insinuate itself deep into many families' lives.
Seat’s most complete car. It has no real weaknesses – but we just know you’d rather have the VW…
Volkswagen serves up more of the same and it's now better than ever.
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...
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.
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.
