Not a marketing exercise but an awesome machine.
Another convincing effort from Hyundai and a tempting alternative to the more obvious Mondeo.
Not as refined as a Freelander, but a hard-working, honest car that will never let you down
Not as cheap as you’d expect, but still one of the best hot hatches on sale.
The Karoq might have lost its predecessor’s personality, but on every other front it’s a better car than the one it replaces
It defines this sector and should be its default buy. You simply can’t go wrong.
It's taken Volkswagen a surprising amount of time to get here, but finally we have a Golf Estate that's up with the best.
The e-Golf is an EV that works for most of us, most of the time. A truly convincing electric car.
Overlook the fact it’s so good that it’s almost joyless: the latest Golf GTI is very desirable indeed.
After a classy cabrio but don't have Audi-like cash? Try this. GTI expensive but worth it; R perhaps not
It’s handsome, well-built and pleasant, with Kia’s monster warranty an added draw.
Mazda’s new 3 family hatch: low on excitement, high on quiet satisfaction
Buy without regret: the 3 drives as well as it looks. Very nicely balanced indeed.
All-new CR-V is a big step up. Not perfect, but a worthy rival to the best in this class
Hyundai arrives to worry the Ford Mondeo – and the impressive i40 certainly does that.
A big step up from the old one, but still overshadowed by the brilliant S-Max.
Seat’s most complete car. It has no real weaknesses – but we just know you’d rather have the VW…
A very rational car in standard form, which will make your life easy, but not exciting. The i30 N hot hatch manages to make it easy AND exciting. It's ace
It’s big, expensive and not especially clever, but it is really, really good at ferrying lots of people about. Really, really quietly.
Well thought out, versatile and thoroughly decent family estate. The weeniest bit boring
Solid, gimmick-free all-rounder that’s slightly less good at everything than a Golf, but cheaper for it.
Better than the car it replaces, but not interesting, exciting or memorable.
