A job well done. The Golf is better, but not by much.
Lots of crossover showroom appeal, and lives up to it out on the road.
It’s handsome, well-built and pleasant, with Kia’s monster warranty an added draw.
Not quite a Discovery rival, but offers plenty of space for the cash
Peugeot’s back on form, though it’s a GTI in an R/RS world and it struggles to engage.
Facelifted Sportage gains mild hybrid diesel tech, but it’s not enough to radically alter the class landscape
A credible first ever sports saloon from Kia. Interesting to look at, and huge value for money. Needs a better gearbox though.
The Peugeot 508 SW is a better car than the Citroen C5 Tourer it shares its chassis with.
Not the most rounded family estate, but the big Pug oozes desirability. Much cooler than a 3 Series
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.
