Not a marketing exercise but an awesome machine.
Less inviting to own than a Mercedes C-coupe, but scores points with excellent driving dynamics, a strong range, well laid-out cabin and class-best infotainment.
For the vast majority of us, the 3 Series Touring is all the car we could use or want
If you like the baroque styling and can find a dealer, go for it.
It’s handsome, well-built and pleasant, with Kia’s monster warranty an added draw.
Another string to Kia’s ever more impressive bow, the Picanto is a fun and interesting city car.
Technically and mechanically other city cars outstrip it, but emotionally – well, that’s up to you. We understand.
Not revolutionary, but Q2 is different enough to make you stand out in a crowd.
A very rational car in standard form, which will make your life easy, but not exciting. The i30 N hot hatch manages to make it easy AND exciting. It's ace
Superb design and refinement cloak a nondescript driving experience. Again.
Beautifully built and beautiful to look at. But the A4 is 98 per cent as good, cheaper and less pretentious.
Far better looking than the old 1 Series Coupe. Driving and owning qualities mark it out as a real BMW.
Not sexy, not fun, not a heartstring-tugger, but by gum is this a clever car. Brilliantly fit for purpose

It’s not that the ASX is truly bad by any stretch of the imagination, it’s just that its competition is newer. And better.

Expensive, slow, horrid to drive. A mass of metal without sense or relish or ability or anything, really.
