Like the Skoda Citigo, a cheaper VW Up — a winner, in other words.
Bold and beautiful: the Lexus LC is the maddest Lexus since the LFA, and backs it up with impressive dynamics for a heavy car… so long as you buy the V8, not the hybrid.
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.
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.
Lexus makes a proper alternative to the default German premium SUVs, so long as you prefer efficiency and comfort to outright performance
Seat’s most complete car. It has no real weaknesses – but we just know you’d rather have the VW…
Only the interior isn't as good as the Golf. Beyond that, there's not a lot to split the Leon ST.
A saloon car for people who don’t really care about/enjoy driving, but quite like big mpg and a nice stereo
22nd Century limo looks, stunted by 1980s powertrain response. The ultimate left-field choice...

Expensive to buy, expensive to own. Rationalists, look elsewhere; LS is outpaced by newer, greener, cheaper rivals.
To call this a posh Prius may sound a little harsh, but that’s what it is.
