A job well done. The Golf is better, but not by much.
Citroen's Fiat Panda - character over driving thrills, but none the worse for that.
Colourful character in a muted part of the market
Cracking supermini is one of the best cars Ford makes. Britain’s top seller? It makes you proud.
Peugeot's hot hatch renaissance continues. The 308 GTI has a joyously wild streak
Softer and a little disappointing: the new RS isn’t what it was. Still fun, but we hoped for more…
Good but not great supermini for dynamics, but a thoroughly enjoyable object
The looks are polarising, but if you want it, you’ll really really want it.
Cheery and characterful, the new Clio is a genuinely appealing supermini.
Sensible and worthy, but pretty desirable too. Tons of room in the back, but little driving fun to be had
This is among the best compact estates on sale (partly because it isn’t really compact at all).
Neither revolutionary in style nor the most exciting to drive, but a very mature car
Not as far behind the Ford Focus as you might think. Vauxhall's facelifted hatch is a very competent thing... but an all-new one lurks around the corner.
While still a comfy, useful hatchback, the C4 Cactus's move mainstream has taken away its class hero status
Big, comfy and tech-heavy, but plain and ultimately unremarkable.
