The best 21st Century MG yet. Other faint praise is available
The Sandero is deservedly doing well: a reasonable car for a frankly astonishing price.
An appliance carefully targeted at people who are uninterested in cars.
Cheap and practical. But there are better cars out there that do much the same thing.
Another string to Kia’s ever more impressive bow, the Picanto is a fun and interesting city car.
Better than ever, the Fiat Panda is still a worthy rival to the VW Up.
There are many good mini-SUVs on the market. The Mokka isn’t one of them. We advise a trip to a Skoda dealership.
Italophiles will get some kicks here, but this is an average effort that is easily trumped for comparable money.
Expensive, slow, horrid to drive. A mass of metal without sense or relish or ability or anything, really.
It's engine range isn't class leading, but overlook that and the Micra is a massively improved contender
Not quite the awful snotter we were expecting. But it is ruined by an awful engine.
If you like driving, and like small cars, you'll love the Mazda 2.
BMW performance hatch that is also a bit of a bargain. It's not quite a 1M, but it's close.
Low on excitement, but high on value. Ka+ is a Fiesta on a shoestring budget
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
Not sexy, not fun, not a heartstring-tugger, but by gum is this a clever car. Brilliantly fit for purpose
If you need a roomy supermini this is about your last stop before a Honda Jazz. But it lacks the involvement of some older superminis.
This is the future, supercar buyers. If this is how it's to be, bring it on.
Worthy supermini that majors on ease of use and grown-up design. Fun is in short order though
City car that feels more grown up than its size would suggest. Hyundai has hit on a winner here.
Great option for someone who doesn’t really care about cars or driving.
