Lexus makes a posh compact SUV but forgets to make it drive well.
Suffers from exactly the same flaw as every other Infiniti – the only reason you’d buy one is because it’s rare-groove different. Not necessarily better.
A saloon car for people who don’t really care about/enjoy driving, but quite like big mpg and a nice stereo
Something of an oddity, but not without charm
Every Lexus trait wrapped up in a tight 3 Series sized package. Superb design, forgettable to drive, probably quite nice to own.
All-new third-generation X6 is easy to drive quickly, but not as rewarding as we'd hoped
The new Kuga is safer and roomier than before. Less fun, but a better family car
A fantastic everyday proposition, a hot hatch that's easy to live with. Mostly for good
If you *really* like BMWs, then the 8 Series is great. But it's less special than its rivals
Buy without regret: the 3 drives as well as it looks. Very nicely balanced indeed.
Mazda’s new 3 family hatch: low on excitement, high on quiet satisfaction
A fun car with a practical side, but no longer one of the sharpest hot hatches on sale
If you ‘get’ the Wrangler, this one’s easier to live with than ever before and just as easy to love. If you don’t, there’s always the Skoda Kodiaq
A car that returns to trade on past glories. The game's moved on, Subaru.
Another good Mazda from one of the very few car companies – any company, come to that – which simply doesn’t make a bad product
A likeable Swiss Army knife. A bit bland but will shrug off anything thrown at it.
A thoroughly capable family car that handles far better than it really needs to
The CX-5 is a cracking SUV that really will exceed your expectations. Well worth a look.
This Focus, if you get the better rear suspension, is the sweetest drive in the mainstream hatch class
