The B-Class is now a genuine contender – if an expensive one – in the family hatch sector.
Everything we've come to love about new-age Volvos in a smaller size

It's taken Volkswagen a surprising amount of time to get here, but finally we have a Golf Estate that's up with the best.
Skoda offers it in a very pretty green. There’s your reason to not buy a Mii.
Bold and beautiful: the Lexus LC is the maddest Lexus since the LFA, and backs it up with impressive dynamics for a heavy car… so long as you buy the V8, not the hybrid.
