An appliance carefully targeted at people who are uninterested in cars.
Far, far better than the last one, but still likely to remain a niche purchase.
Probably Fiat’s least interesting car, but that doesn’t mean it’s worth ignoring if you love a bargain.
A Renault Twingo that’s not quite so cool as a Renault Twingo. Sorry.
At last, a small Vauxhall that’s not tedious to drive! Now, just sort out that dated interior
A beautiful, entertaining and fundamentally different hatch.
A capable machine, but more GT than hot hatch. Think mature rather than arm-wangly Italian
We've had to wait for it, but the new Mondeo has been well worth it.
The Clubman has charm but, although roomier, it’s not as fun to drive as it was.
The Q2 is pleasingly bold on the surface, but plays with a very safe bat beneath it
A refreshing niche that ain’t a crossover, but not as sporty as billed
Technically and mechanically other city cars outstrip it, but emotionally – well, that’s up to you. We understand.
Renault’s Qashqai rival is conveniently a rebodied… Qashqai. A fine appliance for family transport
Beautifully built and beautiful to look at. But the A4 is 98 per cent as good, cheaper and less pretentious.
Hyundai arrives to worry the Ford Mondeo – and the impressive i40 certainly does that.
Just what the market ordered. Stylish crossover for people who don't need family space. But don't dig too deep beyond that
Only the interior isn't as good as the Golf. Beyond that, there's not a lot to split the Leon ST.
The looks might be polarising but it's not actually ugly and certainly not – bigger crime – bland
Better than the car it replaces, but not interesting, exciting or memorable.
As entertaining and satisfying as the old Twingo was mundane and mediocre.
Another worthy crossover. Comfy, roomy, but not especially interesting
One of Britain’s best-selling cars, the Qashqai is quiety, comfy and homemade, too
