Everything we've come to love about new-age Volvos in a smaller size
Cracking supermini is one of the best cars Ford makes. Britain’s top seller? It makes you proud.
Lots of crossover showroom appeal, and lives up to it out on the road.
Vauxhall has turned the Corsa VXR into a convincing fast pocket rocket.
Kia improves things yet again. Refinement, styling and interior quality are nearly as good as anything out there. Nearly…
This is among the best compact estates on sale (partly because it isn’t really compact at all).
A big French saloon might be an oddball choice, but the 508 looks bold, feels good and drives (mostly) well
Peugeot ditches MPVs, does crossovers instead. Seven-seat 5008 is the biggest yet
Softer and a little disappointing: the new RS isn’t what it was. Still fun, but we hoped for more…
Cheery and characterful, the new Clio is a genuinely appealing supermini.

A safe, sensible, comfortable saloon. Not a patch on the latest BMW 3-Series, though.
Neither revolutionary in style nor the most exciting to drive, but a very mature car
