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
Every Lexus trait wrapped up in a tight 3 Series sized package. Superb design, forgettable to drive, probably quite nice to own.
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
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
Another good Mazda from one of the very few car companies – any company, come to that – which simply doesn’t make a bad product
Everything good about the A3 Sportback, just a little less practical. A complete car that won't get on your nerves
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
