Cheap, but doesn't always feel it. The Korando is coming of age
Jumped-up Clio is miles less tinny than the old one. Breaks no rules, but it's good-looking, refined and comfy
More an SUV than a soft-roader. Patchy dynamics but well finished and has good off-road ability
Not as far behind the Ford Focus as you might think. Vauxhall's facelifted hatch is a very competent thing... but an all-new one lurks around the corner.
Not as fresh as it was, but ageing gracefully, and still the best DS of the bunch.
While still a comfy, useful hatchback, the C4 Cactus's move mainstream has taken away its class hero status
If it ain't broke, don't fix it; updated Captur is still one of the better small crossovers on sale
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.
Good but not great supermini for dynamics, but a thoroughly enjoyable object
An addictive little begger that is much better than its list of failings would have you believe.
It presents enough rational arguments that it'll insinuate itself deep into many families' lives.
The 2008 is a proper little mashup, which just about works.
The Eclipse Cross is a striking and mostly successful Qashqai rival
Spoilt for choice between this and an MX-5? You can't actually go wrong. Choose on looks and engine character
Citroen's Fiat Panda - character over driving thrills, but none the worse for that.
A far better car than it needs to be at the price, and we love it for that.
BMW performance hatch that is also a bit of a bargain. It's not quite a 1M, but it's close.
