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.
Vauxhall has turned the Corsa VXR into a convincing fast pocket rocket.
Peugeot has at last rediscovered some hot hatch form. Not the most startling small fast hatch, but a good effort.
It presents enough rational arguments that it'll insinuate itself deep into many families' lives.
The 2008 is a proper little mashup, which just about works.
This is among the best compact estates on sale (partly because it isn’t really compact at all).
A big French saloon might be an oddball choice, but the 508 looks bold, feels good and drives (mostly) well
Peugeot's hot hatch renaissance continues. The 308 GTI has a joyously wild streak
Vauxhall has turned the Corsa into a class-competitive contender.
The Astra re-thought. It works at providing what real people really want.
Peugeot has a hit on its hands with the good looking and cheerily willing 208.
New Insignia ticks every cost-effective box, and is much more refined than before. Still tricky to be enthusiastic about, 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 Grandland X is a good car, but not a great car. However, that doesn’t matter so much in the SUV class
Not the best car in this uninspiring, fleet-orientated end of the segment but a very worthy effort.
The Insignia Sports Tourer is a solid effort, handsome and well mannered too.
Easy to own but there's not a lot of flair compared to its myriad rivals
There are many good mini-SUVs on the market. The Mokka isn’t one of them. We advise a trip to a Skoda dealership.
