Superb family all-rounder will politely give rivals a bloody nose
Goes in a different direction to the German alternatives, with convincing success.
The B-Class is now a genuine contender – if an expensive one – in the family hatch sector.
It's taken Volkswagen a surprising amount of time to get here, but finally we have a Golf Estate that's up with the best.
Well done Audi, this one's a proper little stonker: fast, small, fun, a 4wd hot hatch done properly.
Jaguar’s little crossover aims to storm a competitive set with F-Type-inspired looks inside and out, and an engaging drive
Land Rover plays with a winning formula just enough. The Evoque remains a stylish, accomplished choice
The latest Tiguan feels solid, sensible and laser-guided at its target market
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.
The Evoque is pretty much all we hoped it’d be, a crossover to fall for.
Cracking supermini is one of the best cars Ford makes. Britain’s top seller? It makes you proud.
Volvo has made something nicely distinctive here. It'd be impressive even if they'd been practicing for years
It's a sizeable leap, and enough to shove the Polo up to the upper reaches of the supermini order.
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.

Another good Mazda from one of the very few car companies – any company, come to that – which simply doesn’t make a bad product
New Insignia ticks every cost-effective box, and is much more refined than before. Still tricky to be enthusiastic about, though
Not the best car in this uninspiring, fleet-orientated end of the segment but a very worthy effort.
Neither revolutionary in style nor the most exciting to drive, but a very mature car
The Grandland X is a good car, but not a great car. However, that doesn’t matter so much in the SUV class
Suffers from exactly the same flaw as every other Infiniti – the only reason you’d buy one is because it’s rare-groove different. Not necessarily better.
