Audi serves up a confident, capable hot crossover. Just forgets to add spice
A safe, sensible, comfortable saloon. Not a patch on the latest BMW 3-Series, though.
Connectivity and interior layout takes priority over how it drives. For some, that'll be perfect
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
Cosier and more expensive than rivals, but appealing badge and quality
We've had to wait for it, but the new Mondeo has been well worth it.
The Grandland X is a good car, but not a great car. However, that doesn’t matter so much in the SUV class
As green as cars get these days, the V60 Plug-in has the best of both worlds – pace and economy.
Facelifted Sportage gains mild hybrid diesel tech, but it’s not enough to radically alter the class landscape
Incredibly competent, deceptively fast, but needs to be at warp speed before it gets interesting.
The definitive example of rock-solid, sensible, impeccable German engineering
Not the perfect solution to all your motoring needs, but a great first effort at a useable everyday hybrid.
Not revolutionary, but Q2 is different enough to make you stand out in a crowd.
This is among the best compact estates on sale (partly because it isn’t really compact at all).
A big French saloon might be an oddball choice, but the 508 looks bold, feels good and drives (mostly) well
Peugeot ditches MPVs, does crossovers instead. Seven-seat 5008 is the biggest yet
Peugeot's hot hatch renaissance continues. The 308 GTI has a joyously wild streak
Go ahead if you like the look of it. If you don't, endless rivals are about as good.
Only the interior isn't as good as the Golf. Beyond that, there's not a lot to split the Leon ST.
Beautifully built and beautiful to look at. But the A4 is 98 per cent as good, cheaper and less pretentious.
