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
Manages to serve up a zingy new style that hardly compromises its space or usefulness
Seat’s most complete car. It has no real weaknesses – but we just know you’d rather have the VW…
More useful than the biggest estates, and good to drive. Avoid the SUV rat-race.
If the Passat is too dull but you still have a sensible side, the CC could be just the car for you
It’s big, expensive and not especially clever, but it is really, really good at ferrying lots of people about. Really, really quietly.

Cosier and more expensive than rivals, but appealing badge and quality

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

Great-looking, great to drive new Volvo should be a fine car to own.
Renault’s Qashqai rival is conveniently a rebodied… Qashqai. A fine appliance for family transport
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 beautiful, entertaining and fundamentally different hatch.
