The Mini is an excellent hatch, but does it have to be so grown up?
The Prius gets better in the areas it needed to, but its styling will scare your kids.
The looks are polarising, but if you want it, you’ll really really want it.
Biggest Mini yet is the least fun to drive. But new Countryman has practicality on its side.
The Corolla is back, looking better than ever, but still short on fun
A far-reaching facelift has improved it, but it's still not a match for the class best. At least you can now justify it.
A cute, fine little convertible. Although the emphasis is on the little: the boot is tiny and the interior packaging is odd.
The Clubman has charm but, although roomier, it’s not as fun to drive as it was.
Toyota has changed more about the little Aygo than you might think, but the dull and rather small cabin keeps it behind the best of the rest
A household appliance of a car, but easy to live with and well priced.
At a stretch, we can see a point to the 4WD versions, but really though, this is an unnecessary diversion. And not a very pretty one, either.
Better than before with faint Lexus stylings on the exterior but still not very interesting. At all. There are better options.
Sharper looks, better quality interior and greener engines. Still average, though, and there are more able models on the market.
