Right now, it might just be the best handling hardcore supercar of them all.
A great examplar for keeping a car's mechanicals simple. The MX-5 provides fun at entirely legal speeds
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.
More useful than the biggest estates, and good to drive. Avoid the SUV rat-race.
Cracking supermini is one of the best cars Ford makes. Britain’s top seller? It makes you proud.
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.
A thoroughly capable family car that handles far better than it really needs to
Mazda’s new 3 family hatch: low on excitement, high on quiet satisfaction
Buy without regret: the 3 drives as well as it looks. Very nicely balanced indeed.

An excellent and eminently practical car from Ford. Clever design, good to drive.
It’s not sophisticated, but it is enormously good fun. Even as a convertible
A great 21st century take on the classic pony car
Not quite as convincing as the larger S-Max, but it's now not all that far off.
If you like driving, and like small cars, you'll love the Mazda 2.
A big step up from the old one, but still overshadowed by the brilliant S-Max.
The new Kuga is safer and roomier than before. Less fun, but a better family car
More grown up and all the better for it. Priced very keenly too - it's a smart shout.
A fun car with a practical side, but no longer one of the sharpest hot hatches on sale
Ford has gone to work on the updated EcoSport, dragging it from a blot on its record to a class contender
