Right now, it might just be the best handling hardcore supercar of them all.
This Focus, if you get the better rear suspension, is the sweetest drive in the mainstream hatch class
A gamble of a reinvention, but the new, grown-up yet gigglesome Fiesta ST is mostly a winner. Buy one.
Bold and beautiful: the Lexus LC is the maddest Lexus since the LFA, and backs it up with impressive dynamics for a heavy car… so long as you buy the V8, not the hybrid.
More useful than the biggest estates, and good to drive. Avoid the SUV rat-race.

A great 21st century take on the classic pony car
Lexus makes a proper alternative to the default German premium SUVs, so long as you prefer efficiency and comfort to outright performance

Ford has gone to work on the updated EcoSport, dragging it from a blot on its record to a class contender
Low on excitement, but high on value. Ka+ is a Fiesta on a shoestring budget
Every Lexus trait wrapped up in a tight 3 Series sized package. Superb design, forgettable to drive, probably quite nice to own.
A saloon car for people who don’t really care about/enjoy driving, but quite like big mpg and a nice stereo
