An appliance carefully targeted at people who are uninterested in cars.
Italophiles will get some kicks here, but this is an average effort that is easily trumped for comparable money.
Far, far better than the last one, but still likely to remain a niche purchase.
Jumped-up Clio is miles less tinny than the old one. Breaks no rules, but it's good-looking, refined and comfy
A Renault Twingo that’s not quite so cool as a Renault Twingo. Sorry.
Jeep’s tough-look new Renegade brings much-needed brand kudos.
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.
A good car in a class of great ones
The new Kuga is safer and roomier than before. Less fun, but a better family car
If it ain't broke, don't fix it; updated Captur is still one of the better small crossovers on sale
Seat’s most complete car. It has no real weaknesses – but we just know you’d rather have the VW…
As entertaining and satisfying as the old Twingo was mundane and mediocre.
A cruelly underrated, often-overlooked car. Now dating inside and on the tech front, but still one of the most rounded small cars on sale. (Not just to look at).

Mercedes nails it. The C-Class cabrio is pleasant to drive but majors on open-top relaxation
New eighth-gen Golf remains the lingua-franca of the hatch world. A finely polished machine
A Top Gear award winner in 2016, and rightly so – Skoda’s big crossover is all things to all families.
A gamble of a reinvention, but the new, grown-up yet gigglesome Fiesta ST is mostly a winner. Buy one.
