Not a marketing exercise but an awesome machine.
The B-Class is now a genuine contender – if an expensive one – in the family hatch sector.
Better than ever, the Fiat Panda is still a worthy rival to the VW Up.
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.
Well done Audi, this one's a proper little stonker: fast, small, fun, a 4wd hot hatch done properly.
Skoda offers it in a very pretty green. There’s your reason to not buy a Mii.
Another convincing effort from Hyundai and a tempting alternative to the more obvious Mondeo.
Renault’s Qashqai rival is conveniently a rebodied… Qashqai. A fine appliance for family transport
Hyundai arrives to worry the Ford Mondeo – and the impressive i40 certainly does that.
A very rational car in standard form, which will make your life easy, but not exciting. The i30 N hot hatch manages to make it easy AND exciting. It's ace
Another string to Kia’s ever more impressive bow, the Picanto is a fun and interesting city car.
Looks great, feels classy. Worth a look, Volkswagen and Ford owners.
Well thought out, versatile and thoroughly decent family estate. The weeniest bit boring
Not sexy, not fun, not a heartstring-tugger, but by gum is this a clever car. Brilliantly fit for purpose
Solid, gimmick-free all-rounder that’s slightly less good at everything than a Golf, but cheaper for it.
Another good Mazda from one of the very few car companies – any company, come to that – which simply doesn’t make a bad product
Great option for someone who doesn’t really care about cars or driving.
Ford has gone to work on the updated EcoSport, dragging it from a blot on its record to a class contender
The Kia Cee'd is the car that lobs the paving slab of reality into the windscreen of preconception. It might be a straight clone of a Toyota/Ford/VW hatch, but it’s a damn good one.
Probably Fiat’s least interesting car, but that doesn’t mean it’s worth ignoring if you love a bargain.
It's engine range isn't class leading, but overlook that and the Micra is a massively improved contender
It's divisive but, judging by sales, in a good way. Another Nissan crossover success.
