Mazda’s new 3 family hatch: low on excitement, high on quiet satisfaction
Another good Mazda from one of the very few car companies – any company, come to that – which simply doesn’t make a bad product
An excellent and eminently practical car from Ford. Clever design, good to drive.
Not quite as convincing as the larger S-Max, but it's now not all that far off.
Interior finish apart, the CX-3 is a winner. Straight to the top of the class.
The CX-5 is a cracking SUV that really will exceed your expectations. Well worth a look.
Ford has gone to work on the updated EcoSport, dragging it from a blot on its record to a class contender
Big, comfy and tech-heavy, but plain and ultimately unremarkable.
Cracking supermini is one of the best cars Ford makes. Britain’s top seller? It makes you proud.
A gamble of a reinvention, but the new, grown-up yet gigglesome Fiesta ST is mostly a winner. Buy one.
This Focus, if you get the better rear suspension, is the sweetest drive in the mainstream hatch class
A thoroughly capable family car that handles far better than it really needs to
A fun car with a practical side, but no longer one of the sharpest hot hatches on sale
A fantastic everyday proposition, a hot hatch that's easy to live with. Mostly for good
Right now, it might just be the best handling hardcore supercar of them all.
Low on excitement, but high on value. Ka+ is a Fiesta on a shoestring budget
The new Kuga is safer and roomier than before. Less fun, but a better family car
If you like driving, and like small cars, you'll love the Mazda 2.
Buy without regret: the 3 drives as well as it looks. Very nicely balanced indeed.
We've had to wait for it, but the new Mondeo has been well worth it.
More grown up and all the better for it. Priced very keenly too - it's a smart shout.
It’s not sophisticated, but it is enormously good fun. Even as a convertible
