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
Vauxhall has turned the Corsa VXR into a convincing fast pocket rocket.
Vauxhall has turned the Corsa into a class-competitive contender.
It's a sizeable leap, and enough to shove the Polo up to the upper reaches of the supermini order.
A far-reaching facelift has improved it, but it's still not a match for the class best. At least you can now justify it.
Softer and a little disappointing: the new RS isn’t what it was. Still fun, but we hoped for more…
Cheery and characterful, the new Clio is a genuinely appealing supermini.
Neither revolutionary in style nor the most exciting to drive, but a very mature car
Cracking supermini is one of the best cars Ford makes. Britain’s top seller? It makes you proud.
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.
Not as fresh as it was, but ageing gracefully, and still the best DS of the bunch.
A perfectly able family hatchback that brings absolutely nothing new to the sector. Why, Nissan?
Go ahead if you like the look of it. If you don't, endless rivals are about as good.
A well-considered first effort from Kia: a hot hatch nicely suited to the everyday real world.
It won't trouble the cream of the three-door hatch brigade, but it's a mighty good effort, and looks fantastic.
Well done Audi, this one's a proper little stonker: fast, small, fun, a 4wd hot hatch done properly.
Kia improves things yet again. Refinement, styling and interior quality are nearly as good as anything out there. Nearly…
The Astra re-thought. It works at providing what real people really want.
This is among the best compact estates on sale (partly because it isn’t really compact at all).
A great examplar for keeping a car's mechanicals simple. The MX-5 provides fun at entirely legal speeds
