Superb family all-rounder will politely give rivals a bloody nose
Does things differently to the Germans - a safe way to move a family around in style
Seat’s most complete car. It has no real weaknesses – but we just know you’d rather have the VW…
It’s big, expensive and not especially clever, but it is really, really good at ferrying lots of people about. Really, really quietly.
A Top Gear award winner in 2016, and rightly so – Skoda’s big crossover is all things to all families.
More grown up and all the better for it. Priced very keenly too - it's a smart shout.
Volvo has made something nicely distinctive here. It'd be impressive even if they'd been practicing for years
We've had to wait for it, but the new Mondeo has been well worth it.
Been around for a few years. Still among the best of its ilk, but look at the new Leon Estate before you buy
The Karoq might have lost its predecessor’s personality, but on every other front it’s a better car than the one it replaces
Great-looking, great to drive new Volvo should be a fine car to own.
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.

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.
Another worthy crossover. Comfy, roomy, but not especially interesting
A very rational car in standard form, which will make your life easy, but not exciting. The i30 N hot hatch manages to make it easy AND exciting. It's ace
A perfectly able family hatchback that brings absolutely nothing new to the sector. Why, Nissan?
