The Mini is an excellent hatch, but does it have to be so grown up?
A surprisingly rounded EV. Still fun to drive, and uncompromised inside, but it’s likely to be your second car
Go ahead if you like the look of it. If you don't, endless rivals are about as good.
One of the best all-round performance cars ever made. Fast, forgiving, and everyday-friendly
It defines this sector and should be its default buy. You simply can’t go wrong.
New eighth-gen Golf remains the lingua-franca of the hatch world. A finely polished machine
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 e-Golf is an EV that works for most of us, most of the time. A truly convincing electric car.
