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.
A thoroughly capable family car that handles far better than it really needs to
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.

The new Kuga is safer and roomier than before. Less fun, but a better family car
A fun car with a practical side, but no longer one of the sharpest hot hatches on sale
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

More an SUV than a soft-roader. Patchy dynamics but well finished and has good off-road ability
We've had to wait for it, but the new Mondeo has been well worth it.
True to Jeep's off-road roots, but we'd like more attention on the interior and refinement, please
