Colourful character in a muted part of the market
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.
A job well done. The Golf is better, but not by much.
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…
The looks are polarising, but if you want it, you’ll really really want it.
Credible alternative to the establishment, without being quite as talented as the key players.
Cheery and characterful, the new Clio is a genuinely appealing supermini.
The Eclipse Cross is a striking and mostly successful Qashqai rival
More an SUV than a soft-roader. Patchy dynamics but well finished and has good off-road ability
A credible first ever sports saloon from Kia. Interesting to look at, and huge value for money. Needs a better gearbox though.
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.
Cheap, but doesn't always feel it. The Korando is coming of age
