The best 21st Century MG yet. Other faint praise is available
Cheap, but doesn't always feel it. The Korando is coming of age
It’s not that the ASX is truly bad by any stretch of the imagination, it’s just that its competition is newer. And better.
The Eclipse Cross is a striking and mostly successful Qashqai rival
Crossover'd A-Class is an improvement on the old one and will no doubt sell very well indeed, but it's not without its problems...
More an SUV than a soft-roader. Patchy dynamics but well finished and has good off-road ability
The Subaru XV can manage more than many of its competitors off-road, but it's let down by its engine and gearbox
If the Passat is too dull but you still have a sensible side, the CC could be just the car for you
Lexus makes a posh compact SUV but forgets to make it drive well.
Jaguar joins the SUV party and nails it first time. Well heeled families will love it
The X3 has never done BMW much credit, but the new one is a thorough enough job to take on the class best
The VW faces an uphill struggle against brand laden rivals, but is actually just as good.
The Velar majors on style but it's still a useful car. It's roomy enough for a family, not so big it's awkward in cities, and capable of unusual off-road feats.
Dignified, versatile and quite cool. Pity the gearbox and ride let the side down
Credible alternative to the establishment, without being quite as talented as the key players.
Audi's big, aggressive Q8 is interesting and clever, with a side order of *whoa*
Rivals are closer than ever, but the S-Class remains our favourite luxo-barge. For now
