A good car in a class of great ones
Great to look at, good to drive. Whoever would have thought a limo-length five-door hatchback/coupe thing would work so well?
The VW faces an uphill struggle against brand laden rivals, but is actually just as good.
The perfect evolution of the super-popular Q5. The same, just better. Spot on.
Same waft, just with added style. A fine long-distance GT, if ever there was one.
Far from M Division’s finest hour. Fast, but you couldn’t live with the ride
Capable, dependable, and civilised. Pity about the styling: it’s brash outside and too reminiscent of a Corolla within.
If you live in the desert, the Land Cruiser is as good as it gets. But seeing as we don't, the Discovery is a much better bet
Mercedes almost undermines its own flagship with new E-Class Cabrio. Close one
The default four-seat cabrio. Excellent engines and quality, impressive metal roof too.
For the vast majority of us, the 3 Series Touring is all the car we could use or want
Typically BMW for its sheer composure on the road and fine refinement.
Jaguar said its SUVs made new estate cars pointless. It’s built one anyway, and it’s mostly a success.
Less inviting to own than a Mercedes C-coupe, but scores points with excellent driving dynamics, a strong range, well laid-out cabin and class-best infotainment.
The X3 has never done BMW much credit, but the new one is a thorough enough job to take on the class best
The Velar majors on style but it's still a useful car. It's roomy enough for a family, not so big it's awkward in cities, and capable of unusual off-road feats.
Dignified, versatile and quite cool. Pity the gearbox and ride let the side down
A brilliantly-designed item. Every inch the mini-A8, but not as good to drive as a 5er.
This isn’t a luxury sports saloon – it’s a luxury limousine dressed in a rakish, designer suit
Superb design and refinement cloak a nondescript driving experience. Again.
Perhaps it isn’t as stirring as Alfas of the past, but this time who knows, you might actually buy one.
Rivals keep it from a better score, but the new 3 is still one of the benchmarks for this class
