Superb family all-rounder will politely give rivals a bloody nose
One of the best all-round performance cars ever made. Fast, forgiving, and everyday-friendly
Been around for a few years, but still among the best of its ilk
It defines this sector and should be its default buy. You simply can’t go wrong.
New eighth-gen Golf remains the lingua-franca of the hatch world. A finely polished machine
A Top Gear award winner in 2016, and rightly so – Skoda’s big crossover is all things to all families.
Great-looking, great to drive new Volvo should be a fine car to own.
Overlook the fact it’s so good that it’s almost joyless: the latest Golf GTI is very desirable indeed
After a classy cabrio but don't have Audi-like cash? Try this. GTI expensive but worth it; R perhaps not
A safe way to move a family around in style.
The e-Golf is an EV that works for most of us, most of the time. A truly convincing electric car.
Seat’s most complete car. It has no real weaknesses – but we just know you’d rather have the VW…
Buy without regret: the 3 drives as well as it looks. Very nicely balanced indeed.
More grown up and all the better for it. Priced very keenly too - it's a smart shout.
It’s big, expensive and not especially clever, but it is really, really good at ferrying lots of people about. Really, really quietly.
We've had to wait for it, but the new Mondeo has been well worth it.
A perfectly able family hatchback that brings absolutely nothing new to the sector. Why, Nissan?
