An appliance carefully targeted at people who are uninterested in cars.
The Kia Cee'd is the car that lobs the paving slab of reality into the windscreen of preconception. It might be a straight clone of a Toyota/Ford/VW hatch, but it’s a damn good one.
Great to look at, good to drive. Whoever would have thought a limo-length five-door hatchback/coupe thing would work so well?
A credible first ever sports saloon from Kia. Interesting to look at, and huge value for money. Needs a better gearbox though.
Not exactly revolutionary, but it makes plenty of sense... if you need this sort of thing
Audi serves up a confident, capable hot crossover. Just forgets to add spice
Dignified, versatile and quite cool. Pity the gearbox and ride let the side down
A refreshing niche that ain’t a crossover, but not as sporty as billed
It’s a seductive car, the new A5 Cabriolet, and while more dynamically accomplished than its predecessor, still more of a grand touring boulevardier rather than a B-road hustler. But what an ownership proposition.
Beautifully built and beautiful to look at. But the A4 is 98 per cent as good, cheaper and less pretentious.
Another string to Kia’s ever more impressive bow, the Picanto is a fun and interesting city car.
Not the perfect solution to all your motoring needs, but a great first effort at a useable everyday hybrid.
Facelifted Audi Roadster features revised engines, tweaked visuals – and very little amusement
This isn’t a luxury sports saloon – it’s a luxury limousine dressed in a rakish, designer suit
Superb design and refinement cloak a nondescript driving experience. Again.
The definitive example of rock-solid, sensible, impeccable German engineering
Incredibly competent, deceptively fast, but needs to be at warp speed before it gets interesting.
Kia improves things yet again. Refinement, styling and interior quality are nearly as good as anything out there. Nearly…
Facelifted Sportage gains mild hybrid diesel tech, but it’s not enough to radically alter the class landscape
Not revolutionary, but Q2 is different enough to make you stand out in a crowd.
A great little coupe that looks and feels sharper than ever
The perfect evolution of the super-popular Q5. The same, just better. Spot on.
