Great-looking, great to drive new Volvo should be a fine car to own.
Manages to serve up a zingy new style that hardly compromises its space or usefulness
Volvo has made something nicely distinctive here. It'd be impressive even if they'd been practicing for years
Only the interior isn't as good as the Golf. Beyond that, there's not a lot to split the Leon ST.
More grown up and all the better for it. Priced very keenly too - it's a smart shout.
This is among the best compact estates on sale (partly because it isn’t really compact at all).
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.

A capable machine, but more GT than hot hatch. Think mature rather than arm-wangly Italian
A refreshing niche that ain’t a crossover, but not as sporty as billed
We've had to wait for it, but the new Mondeo has been well worth it.
