Superb family all-rounder will politely give rivals a bloody nose.
A safe way to move a family around in style.
Volvo has made something nicely distinctive here. It'd be impressive even if they'd been practicing for years
Manages to serve up a zingy new style that hardly compromises its space or usefulness
By going transverse-engined the X1 has become technically less distinctive, but more useful in the real world
Great-looking, great to drive new Volvo should be a fine car to own.
Just what the market ordered. Stylish crossover for people who don't need family space. But don't dig too deep beyond that
It’s big, expensive and not especially clever, but it is really, really good at ferrying lots of people about. Really, really quietly.

We've had to wait for it, but the new Mondeo has been well worth it.

The Karoq might have lost its predecessor’s personality, but on every other front it’s a better car than the one it replaces
Renault’s Qashqai rival is conveniently a rebodied… Qashqai. A fine appliance for family transport
It's divisive but, judging by sales, in a good way. Another Nissan crossover success.
There’s nothing wrong with the Volkswagen Jetta, but why on earth would you get one when the Golf is so much more versatile?
The Grandland X is a good car, but not a great car. However, that doesn’t matter so much in the SUV class
A capable machine, but more GT than hot hatch. Think mature rather than arm-wangly Italian
