Great-looking, great to drive new Volvo should be a fine car to own.
A safe way to move a family around in style.
Not as refined as a Freelander, but a hard-working, honest car that will never let you down
Lots of crossover showroom appeal, and lives up to it out on the road.
Manages to serve up a zingy new style that hardly compromises its space or usefulness
A first-time entrant from Seat that feels like they’ve been practicing for years.
The Karoq might have lost its predecessor’s personality, but on every other front it’s a better car than the one it replaces
Volvo has made something nicely distinctive here. It'd be impressive even if they'd been practicing for years
Mazda’s new 3 family hatch: low on excitement, high on quiet satisfaction
Buy without regret: the 3 drives as well as it looks. Very nicely balanced indeed.
Renault’s Qashqai rival is conveniently a rebodied… Qashqai. A fine appliance for family transport
Go ahead if you like the look of it. If you don't, endless rivals are about as good.
By going transverse-engined the X1 has become technically less distinctive, but more useful in the real world
Just what the market ordered. Stylish crossover for people who don't need family space. But don't dig too deep beyond that
More grown up and all the better for it. Priced very keenly too - it's a smart shout.
The Astra re-thought. It works at providing what real people really want.
A refreshing niche that ain’t a crossover, but not as sporty as billed
A capable machine, but more GT than hot hatch. Think mature rather than arm-wangly Italian
A beautiful, entertaining and fundamentally different hatch.
We've had to wait for it, but the new Mondeo has been well worth it.
The Kia Cee'd is the car that lobs the paving slab of reality into the windscreen of preconception. It might be a straight clone of a Toyota/Ford/VW hatch, but it’s a damn good one.
The Grandland X is a good car, but not a great car. However, that doesn’t matter so much in the SUV class
