An appliance carefully targeted at people who are uninterested in cars.
Not as fresh as it was, but ageing gracefully, and still the best DS of the bunch.
The Corolla is back, looking better than ever, but still short on fun
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.
Neither revolutionary in style nor the most exciting to drive, but a very mature car
While still a comfy, useful hatchback, the C4 Cactus's move mainstream has taken away its class hero status
If you like driving, and like small cars, you'll love the Mazda 2.
Good but not great supermini for dynamics, but a thoroughly enjoyable object

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.
BMW's switch from RWD to FWD for the new hatch is no bad thing. This new 1 Series is a good car from the bottom up.

Overlook the fact it’s so good that it’s almost joyless: the latest Golf GTI is very desirable indeed.
