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
It’s not that the ASX is truly bad by any stretch of the imagination, it’s just that its competition is newer. And better.
A fun car with a practical side, but no longer one of the sharpest hot hatches on sale
This Focus, if you get the better rear suspension, is the sweetest drive in the mainstream hatch class
A fantastic everyday proposition, a hot hatch that's easy to live with. Mostly for good
Brilliant, fearsomely potent, and never less than addictive to drive.
A thoroughly capable family car that handles far better than it really needs to
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.
Another good Mazda from one of the very few car companies – any company, come to that – which simply doesn’t make a bad product
It’s brilliant. But only up to a point. Pity. It could be so much better...
If you don't get excited by driving, perfectly acceptable. But there should be something more to it than that, no?
A likeable thing. Go for a higher powertrain and it makes most sense.
The CX-5 is a cracking SUV that really will exceed your expectations. Well worth a look.
Failed your family planning classes? You need a Hyundai i800. More budget airline than captain's chair, but needs must.
Not what Merc should be doing. Focus on engineering, not trying to invent another niche
Not much different to the A-Class, but that's OK. Why mess with a successful formula?
A giant, kitted out seven-seat 4x4 for the price of a top-spec Qashqai. Only apply if you like your driving rufty-tufty
True to Jeep's off-road roots, but we'd like more attention on the interior and refinement, please
Not quite a Discovery rival, but offers plenty of space for the cash
A likeable Swiss Army knife. A bit bland but will shrug off anything thrown at it.
Every Lexus trait wrapped up in a tight 3 Series sized package. Superb design, forgettable to drive, probably quite nice to own.
That’s right. Five hundred horsepower. IN A FORD FOCUS
Fifty years after its reveal, Ferrari's outrageous concept finally turns a wheel...
Rory Reid asks: is the traditional hot hatch dead?
