Superb family all-rounder will politely give rivals a bloody nose.
A properly desirable Volvo wagon - finally a decent alternative to the Germans.
Peugeot has at last rediscovered some hot hatch form. Not the most startling small fast hatch, but a good effort.
A job well done. The Golf is better, but not by much.
Goes in a different direction to the German alternatives, with convincing success.
Everything we've come to love about new-age Volvos in a smaller size
The V60 is a sensible, safe Volvo, just as you’d expect. The estate car of choice if comfort means more to you than handling
Lots of crossover showroom appeal, and lives up to it out on the road.
A safe way to move a family around in style.
Great-looking, great to drive new Volvo should be a fine car to own.
Volvo has made something nicely distinctive here. It'd be impressive even if they'd been practicing for years
This is among the best compact estates on sale (partly because it isn’t really compact at all).
Peugeot has a hit on its hands with the good looking and cheerily willing 208.
Peugeot ditches MPVs, does crossovers instead. Seven-seat 5008 is the biggest yet
Peugeot’s back on form, though it’s a GTI in an R/RS world and it struggles to engage.
As green as cars get these days, the V60 Plug-in has the best of both worlds – pace and economy.
A big French saloon might be an oddball choice, but the 508 looks bold, feels good and drives (mostly) well
The 2008 is a proper little mashup, which just about works.
A safe, sensible, comfortable saloon. Not a patch on the latest BMW 3-Series, though.
Well rounded, but short on personality and doesn't go far enough.
The Peugeot 508 SW is a better car than the Citroen C5 Tourer it shares its chassis with.
