Because life is better when there’s a 7.0-litre V8 in front of you
Still a wonderful V8, RWD bruiser at heart, but the extra electronics means it feels slightly confused
It really does tick a whole lot of boxes. You know you want one.
The default four-seat cabrio. Excellent engines and quality, impressive metal roof too.
If you really, truly care about driving, the Lotus Elise is about as obvious an answer as water being wet and fire being hot
It’s a seductive car, the new A5 Cabriolet, and while more dynamically accomplished than its predecessor, still more of a grand touring boulevardier rather than a B-road hustler. But what an ownership proposition.
Jaguar said its SUVs made new estate cars pointless. It’s built one anyway, and it’s mostly a success.
Ultimately uninspiring to drive, but works well as an easy-going 24/7 roadster.
For the vast majority of us, the 3 Series Touring is all the car we could use or want
A good car in a class of great ones
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.
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.
Rivals keep it from a better score, but the new 3 is still one of the benchmarks for this class
Has the makings of a great family car, if lacking a little excitement
Good looking, spacious and well equipped, but it’s missing on that oh-so-important ‘buy-me’ factor...
The Evoque is pretty much all we hoped it’d be, a crossover to fall for.
Land Rover plays with a winning formula just enough. The Evoque remains a stylish, accomplished choice
A car that returns to trade on past glories. The game's moved on, Subaru.
If you like the baroque styling and can find a dealer, go for it.
The best car in its class. New engine is so good, it earns it an extra point
It’s big, expensive and not especially clever, but it is really, really good at ferrying lots of people about. Really, really quietly.
