Colourful character in a muted part of the market
Cracking supermini is one of the best cars Ford makes. Britain’s top seller? It makes you proud.
Vauxhall has turned the Corsa VXR into a convincing fast pocket rocket.
Softer and a little disappointing: the new RS isn’t what it was. Still fun, but we hoped for more…

This is among the best compact estates on sale (partly because it isn’t really compact at all).
You might not like to admit it, but the BMW X5 is a damn good car.
Vauxhall has turned the Corsa into a class-competitive contender.

Neither revolutionary in style nor the most exciting to drive, but a very mature car
A far-reaching facelift has improved it, but it's still not a match for the class best. At least you can now justify it.
