Well rounded, but short on personality and doesn't go far enough.
The 2008 is a proper little mashup, which just about works.
Peugeot has a hit on its hands with the good looking and cheerily willing 208.
Peugeot has at last rediscovered some hot hatch form. Not the most startling small fast hatch, but a good effort.
Mazda’s new 3 family hatch: low on excitement, high on quiet satisfaction
Lots of crossover showroom appeal, and lives up to it out on the road.
A job well done. The Golf is better, but not by much.
Peugeot's hot hatch renaissance continues. The 308 GTI has a joyously wild streak
This is among the best compact estates on sale (partly because it isn’t really compact at all).
Peugeot ditches MPVs, does crossovers instead. Seven-seat 5008 is the biggest yet
A big French saloon might be an oddball choice, but the 508 looks bold, feels good and drives (mostly) well
The Peugeot 508 SW is a better car than the Citroen C5 Tourer it shares its chassis with.
Not the most rounded family estate, but the big Pug oozes desirability. Much cooler than a 3 Series
Another good Mazda from one of the very few car companies – any company, come to that – which simply doesn’t make a bad product
Interior finish apart, the CX-3 is a winner. Straight to the top of the class.
The CX-5 is a cracking SUV that really will exceed your expectations. Well worth a look.
If you like driving, and like small cars, you'll love the Mazda 2.
Buy without regret: the 3 drives as well as it looks. Very nicely balanced indeed.
A great examplar for keeping a car's mechanicals simple. The MX-5 provides fun at entirely legal speeds
