The best 21st Century MG yet. Other faint praise is available
The long-awaited baby Jag doesn’t disappoint. It needed to be right. It is. Now it has to deliver sales.
Comfy and quiet yet brilliant to drive. The handling-nerd's car in this class
If you ‘get’ the Wrangler, this one’s easier to live with than ever before and just as easy to love. If you don’t, there’s always the Skoda Kodiaq
As sensible and tasty as a dry cracker. A decent enough car, perhaps one for the Freedom Pass brigade.
New Soul puts practicality to the fore, but in other areas less progress has been made.
Easy to see how the Senna could become addictive. In short, it’s a stunning achievement
An appliance carefully targeted at people who are uninterested in cars.
A giant, kitted out seven-seat 4x4 for the price of a top-spec Qashqai. Only apply if you like your driving rufty-tufty
It might not add a great deal more space, but it's hard not to love this four-door Aston.
Another string to Kia’s ever more impressive bow, the Picanto is a fun and interesting city car.
Lexus makes a posh compact SUV but forgets to make it drive well.
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
Cheap, but doesn't always feel it. The Korando is coming of age
Not sexy, not fun, not a heartstring-tugger, but by gum is this a clever car. Brilliantly fit for purpose
At last, a hybrid that doesn’t make you suffer for its green ideals. Top of the class.
Great chassis, great interior but so-so powertrain – the Subaru Impreza remains an oddball
Failed your family planning classes? You need a Hyundai i800. More budget airline than captain's chair, but needs must.
Sensible and worthy, but pretty desirable too. Tons of room in the back, but little driving fun to be had
Worthy supermini that majors on ease of use and grown-up design. Fun is in short order though
A thorough update of the Gallardo, and good enough to play ball with its rivals.
