The best 21st Century MG yet. Other faint praise is available
The Suzuki Jimny is a tiny, cheap and rival-free hardcore off-roader. Does what it does quite brilliantly. Does everything else appallingly.
The Jimny’s ultra-honest unpretentiousness is the antidote to every beige crossover out there. Just don’t expect sophistication, and you’ll adore it
An addictive little begger that is much better than its list of failings would have you believe.
Sensible and worthy, but pretty desirable too. Tons of room in the back, but little driving fun to be had
Great chassis, great interior but so-so powertrain – the Subaru Impreza remains an oddball
A great examplar for keeping a car's mechanicals simple. The MX-5 provides fun at entirely legal speeds
A perfect illustration of why the world is being taken over by crossovers.

A good, solid SUV. Lots of space, but competitors have caught and passed in some areas

Not as refined as a Freelander, but a hard-working, honest car that will never let you down
Spoilt for choice between this and an MX-5? You can't actually go wrong. Choose on looks and engine character
Not quite a Discovery rival, but offers plenty of space for the cash
A good-natured daily driver that's rare, looks sporty and offers lots to enjoy. But it's pricey
The best car in its class. New engine is so good, it earns it an extra point
Has the makings of a great family car, if lacking a little excitement
Ultimately uninspiring to drive, but works well as an easy-going 24/7 roadster.
Judged appropriately, the Plus 4 is a charming tonic to the grumpy, cynical modern world
Big, comfy and tech-heavy, but plain and ultimately unremarkable.
Not the engaging sports car Infiniti insists. But it's a fine long-distance, high-tech car.
If you really, truly care about driving, the Lotus Elise is about as obvious an answer as water being wet and fire being hot
Fancy a crack at rallying? This plug-in Corsa is aimed at newcomers
Fifty years after its reveal, Ferrari's outrageous concept finally turns a wheel...
