Buy without regret: the 3 drives as well as it looks. Very nicely balanced indeed.
Mazda’s new 3 family hatch: low on excitement, high on quiet satisfaction
It's divisive but, judging by sales, in a good way. Another Nissan crossover success.
An addictive little begger that is much better than its list of failings would have you believe.

This is among the best compact estates on sale (partly because it isn’t really compact at all).

A refreshing niche that ain’t a crossover, but not as sporty as billed
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 beautiful, entertaining and fundamentally different hatch.
Just what the market ordered. Stylish crossover for people who don't need family space. But don't dig too deep beyond that

A Top Gear award winner in 2016, and rightly so – Skoda’s big crossover is all things to all families.
More grown up and all the better for it. Priced very keenly too - it's a smart shout.
