Big, comfy and tech-heavy, but plain and ultimately unremarkable.
Not what Merc should be doing. Focus on engineering, not trying to invent another niche
Low on excitement, but high on value. Ka+ is a Fiesta on a shoestring budget
Ford has gone to work on the updated EcoSport, dragging it from a blot on its record to a class contender
We've had to wait for it, but the new Mondeo has been well worth it.
Another brilliant iteration of the classic Mercedes - but the appeal of the looks will take time...
Connectivity and interior layout takes priority over how it drives. For some, that'll be perfect
Ultimately uninspiring to drive, but works well as an easy-going 24/7 roadster.
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.
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
By no means perfect, but blessed with such character we can forgive AMG’s bombastic GLC
A likeable thing. Go for a higher powertrain and it makes most sense.
More grown up and all the better for it. Priced very keenly too - it's a smart shout.
An immensely fast and capable car to drive. But Golf R remains better to drive.
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
Looks good, lowers the heart rate and comes with some reasonably cost-effective engines. A winning combination
Not much different to the A-Class, but that's OK. Why mess with a successful formula?
