The Mini is an excellent hatch, but does it have to be so grown up?
Biggest Mini yet is the least fun to drive. But new Countryman has practicality on its side.
The Kia Cee'd is the car that lobs the paving slab of reality into the windscreen of preconception. It might be a straight clone of a Toyota/Ford/VW hatch, but it’s a damn good one.
A cute, fine little convertible. Although the emphasis is on the little: the boot is tiny and the interior packaging is odd.
The Clubman has charm but, although roomier, it’s not as fun to drive as it was.
A refreshing niche that ain’t a crossover, but not as sporty as billed
