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
Like the Skoda Citigo, a cheaper VW Up — a winner, in other words.
More useful than the biggest estates, and good to drive. Avoid the SUV rat-race.

A first-time entrant from Seat that feels like they’ve been practicing for years.
Not as cheap as you’d expect, but still one of the best hot hatches on sale.
A gamble of a reinvention, but the new, grown-up yet gigglesome Fiesta ST is mostly a winner. Buy one.
A thoroughly capable family car that handles far better than it really needs to
An excellent and eminently practical car from Ford. Clever design, good to drive.
If you need a roomy supermini this is about your last stop before a Honda Jazz. But it lacks the involvement of some older superminis.
More grown up and all the better for it. Priced very keenly too - it's a smart shout.

We've had to wait for it, but the new Mondeo has been well worth it.
