The best 21st Century MG yet. Other faint praise is available
The Suzuki Jimny is a tiny, cheap and rival-free hardcore off-roader. Does what it does quite brilliantly. Does everything else appallingly.
The Jimny’s ultra-honest unpretentiousness is the antidote to every beige crossover out there. Just don’t expect sophistication, and you’ll adore it
An addictive little begger that is much better than its list of failings would have you believe.
Cheap, but doesn't always feel it. The Korando is coming of age
It’s not that the ASX is truly bad by any stretch of the imagination, it’s just that its competition is newer. And better.
The Eclipse Cross is a striking and mostly successful Qashqai rival
Crossover'd A-Class is an improvement on the old one and will no doubt sell very well indeed, but it's not without its problems...

The VW faces an uphill struggle against brand laden rivals, but is actually just as good.
The Velar majors on style but it's still a useful car. It's roomy enough for a family, not so big it's awkward in cities, and capable of unusual off-road feats.
A great little coupe that looks and feels sharper than ever
Facelifted Audi Roadster features revised engines, tweaked visuals – and very little amusement
A terrific car, a genuine exponent of light weight and something pleasingly different to drive
Dignified, versatile and quite cool. Pity the gearbox and ride let the side down
Not exactly revolutionary, but it makes plenty of sense... if you need this sort of thing
Credible alternative to the establishment, without being quite as talented as the key players.
The X7 is BMW's biggest and most luxurious SUV, and it wants to be noticed
