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.
The e-Golf is an EV that works for most of us, most of the time. A truly convincing electric car.
Overlook the fact it’s so good that it’s almost joyless: the latest Golf GTI is very desirable indeed.
The latest Tiguan feels solid, sensible and laser-guided at its target market
After a classy cabrio but don't have Audi-like cash? Try this. GTI expensive but worth it; R perhaps not
It’s handsome, well-built and pleasant, with Kia’s monster warranty an added draw.
It’s big, expensive and not especially clever, but it is really, really good at ferrying lots of people about. Really, really quietly.
Facelifted Sportage gains mild hybrid diesel tech, but it’s not enough to radically alter the class landscape
Good looking, spacious and well equipped, but it’s missing on that oh-so-important ‘buy-me’ factor...
Volkswagen serves up more of the same and it's now better than ever.
Better than the car it replaces, but not interesting, exciting or memorable.
Kia improves things yet again. Refinement, styling and interior quality are nearly as good as anything out there. Nearly…
It's a sizeable leap, and enough to shove the Polo up to the upper reaches of the supermini order.
Just what the market ordered. Stylish crossover for people who don't need family space. But don't dig too deep beyond that
New Soul puts practicality to the fore, but in other areas less progress has been made.
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...
Like your cars straightforward, fuss-free, and practical? You’ll really like this. (Very) quietly excellent without ever being memorable.
The Kia Cee'd is the car that lobs the paving slab of reality into the windscreen of preconception. It might be a straight clone of a Toyota/Ford/VW hatch, but it’s a damn good one.
A refreshing niche that ain’t a crossover, but not as sporty as billed
