Softer and a little disappointing: the new RS isn’t what it was. Still fun, but we hoped for more…
Cheery and characterful, the new Clio is a genuinely appealing supermini.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it; updated Captur is still one of the better small crossovers on sale
Renault’s Qashqai rival is conveniently a rebodied… Qashqai. A fine appliance for family transport
The Zoe was already a strong EV contender – extra power and range makes it more convincing than ever
The Megane RS has a newfound maturity. Better for tackling the Golf GTI, worse for tackling your local trackday

Biggest Mini yet is the least fun to drive. But new Countryman has practicality on its side.
MPV sales are down, but the stylish Scenic has every chance of reversing the trend.
A cute, fine little convertible. Although the emphasis is on the little: the boot is tiny and the interior packaging is odd.
