The Mini is an excellent hatch, but does it have to be so grown up?
Solid, gimmick-free all-rounder that’s slightly less good at everything than a Golf, but cheaper for it.
Well thought out, versatile and thoroughly decent family estate. The weeniest bit boring
A cute, fine little convertible. Although the emphasis is on the little: the boot is tiny and the interior packaging is odd.
The Peugeot 508 SW is a better car than the Citroen C5 Tourer it shares its chassis with.
Not the most rounded family estate, but the big Pug oozes desirability. Much cooler than a 3 Series
