Not a marketing exercise but an awesome machine.
It defines this sector and should be its default buy. You simply can’t go wrong.
It's taken Volkswagen a surprising amount of time to get here, but finally we have a Golf Estate that's up with the best.
Overlook the fact it’s so good that it’s almost joyless: the latest Golf GTI is very desirable indeed.
After a classy cabrio but don't have Audi-like cash? Try this. GTI expensive but worth it; R perhaps not
The latest Tiguan feels solid, sensible and laser-guided at its target market
The e-Golf is an EV that works for most of us, most of the time. A truly convincing electric car.
Volkswagen serves up more of the same and it's now better than ever.
Just what the market ordered. Stylish crossover for people who don't need family space. But don't dig too deep beyond that
It's a sizeable leap, and enough to shove the Polo up to the upper reaches of the supermini order.
Better than the car it replaces, but not interesting, exciting or memorable.
Good looking, spacious and well equipped, but it’s missing on that oh-so-important ‘buy-me’ factor...
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
Like your cars straightforward, fuss-free, and practical? You’ll really like this. (Very) quietly excellent without ever being memorable.
Not the best car in this uninspiring, fleet-orientated end of the segment but a very worthy effort.
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.
The Grandland X is a good car, but not a great car. However, that doesn’t matter so much in the SUV class
If the Passat is too dull but you still have a sensible side, the CC could be just the car for you
The Insignia Sports Tourer is a solid effort, handsome and well mannered too.
Easy to own but there's not a lot of flair compared to its myriad rivals
There’s nothing wrong with the Volkswagen Jetta, but why on earth would you get one when the Golf is so much more versatile?
