A job well done. The Golf is better, but not by much.
Lots of crossover showroom appeal, and lives up to it out on the road.
Peugeot has at last rediscovered some hot hatch form. Not the most startling small fast hatch, but a good effort.
Vauxhall has turned the Corsa VXR into a convincing fast pocket rocket.
Still a wonderful V8, RWD bruiser at heart, but the extra electronics means it feels slightly confused
Surprisingly fresh-faced and good-looking new city car from Vauxhall. Deserves to do well.
This is among the best compact estates on sale (partly because it isn’t really compact at all).
Peugeot’s back on form, though it’s a GTI in an R/RS world and it struggles to engage.
The 2008 is a proper little mashup, which just about works.
A big French saloon might be an oddball choice, but the 508 looks bold, feels good and drives (mostly) well
Peugeot ditches MPVs, does crossovers instead. Seven-seat 5008 is the biggest yet
The Astra re-thought. It works at providing what real people really want.
New Insignia ticks every cost-effective box, and is much more refined than before. Still tricky to be enthusiastic about, though
Peugeot has a hit on its hands with the good looking and cheerily willing 208.
It presents enough rational arguments that it'll insinuate itself deep into many families' lives.
Vauxhall has turned the Corsa into a class-competitive contender.
The Grandland X is a good car, but not a great car. However, that doesn’t matter so much in the SUV class
The Peugeot 508 SW is a better car than the Citroen C5 Tourer it shares its chassis with.
Well rounded, but short on personality and doesn't go far enough.
Not the best car in this uninspiring, fleet-orientated end of the segment but a very worthy effort.
The Insignia Sports Tourer is a solid effort, handsome and well mannered too.
