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
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.
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.
A giant, kitted out seven-seat 4x4 for the price of a top-spec Qashqai. Only apply if you like your driving rufty-tufty
Cheap and practical. But there are better cars out there that do much the same thing.
Judged appropriately, the Plus 4 is a charming tonic to the grumpy, cynical modern world
Another string to Kia’s ever more impressive bow, the Picanto is a fun and interesting city car.
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
Low on excitement, but high on value. Ka+ is a Fiesta on a shoestring budget
Not sexy, not fun, not a heartstring-tugger, but by gum is this a clever car. Brilliantly fit for purpose
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
The F-Type is fun to drive, sounds fantastic and looks amazing. Job done.
Ford has gone to work on the updated EcoSport, dragging it from a blot on its record to a class contender
Interior finish apart, the CX-3 is a winner. Straight to the top of the class.
