Superb family all-rounder will politely give rivals a bloody nose.
A properly desirable Volvo wagon - finally a decent alternative to the Germans.
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
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
The Mini is an excellent hatch, but does it have to be so grown up?
As green as cars get these days, the V60 Plug-in has the best of both worlds – pace and economy.
Biggest Mini yet is the least fun to drive. But new Countryman has practicality on its side.
A safe, sensible, comfortable saloon. Not a patch on the latest BMW 3-Series, though.
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.
At a stretch, we can see a point to the 4WD versions, but really though, this is an unnecessary diversion. And not a very pretty one, either.
