A brilliant answer to the question of eco-friendly urban transport.
Far, far better than the last one, but still likely to remain a niche purchase.
A Renault Twingo that’s not quite so cool as a Renault Twingo. Sorry.
As entertaining and satisfying as the old Twingo was mundane and mediocre.
Brilliant, fearsomely potent, and never less than addictive to drive.
A great examplar for keeping a car's mechanicals simple. The MX-5 provides fun at entirely legal speeds
BMW performance hatch that is also a bit of a bargain. It's not quite a 1M, but it's close.
BMW's switch from RWD to FWD for the new hatch is no bad thing. This new 1 Series is a good car from the bottom up.
Far better looking than the old 1 Series Coupe. Driving and owning qualities mark it out as a real BMW.
Failed your family planning classes? You need a Hyundai i800. More budget airline than captain's chair, but needs must.
The simplest and most exciting Toyota in years is also a real pleasure to drive
Spoilt for choice between this and an MX-5? You can't actually go wrong. Choose on looks and engine character
Tail-happy dynamics and a meaty V6 powerplant. Don't let the TC spoil your fun
Meet the new C-Class, same as the old C-Class: comfy, techy and classy
A good-natured daily driver that's rare, looks sporty and offers lots to enjoy. But it's pricey
If you like the baroque styling and can find a dealer, go for it.
Every Lexus trait wrapped up in a tight 3 Series sized package. Superb design, forgettable to drive, probably quite nice to own.
There’s no rationalising the Morgan 3-Wheeler, which is a massive part of its appeal. Take it at face value and love it.
A credible first ever sports saloon from Kia. Interesting to look at, and huge value for money. Needs a better gearbox though.
The long-awaited baby Jag doesn’t disappoint. It needed to be right. It is. Now it has to deliver sales.
Comfy and quiet yet brilliant to drive. The handling-nerd's car in this class
Classy, sensible and easy to live with. Not the most exciting small estate on sale, but possibly the most well-rounded
But placards at the ready, because the Project C's not coming to the UK...
Fifty years after its reveal, Ferrari's outrageous concept finally turns a wheel...
Rory Reid asks: is the traditional hot hatch dead?
