Buyer’s guides

  • Abarth 595 (2012-present)

    Fun-loving Abarth 595 is fast and packed full of charm, but stiff ride and cramped cabin make it hard work day to day

  • Renault Captur (2020-present)

    Fancy a small car, with a high driving position, for a low price? The second-generation Renault Captur is a great all-rounder for the money

  • Peugeot 2008/e-2008 (2020-present)

    Peugeot’s new 2008 crossover makes a compelling case for itself with striking looks and interior and the option of all-electric motoring

  • Mercedes-Benz CLA (2019-present)

    Sweeping coupe styling certainly makes a visual impact, but the CLA is just not as practical as the A-Class upon which it is based

  • Hyundai i10 (2020-present)

    The Hyundai i10 has long been one of the cheapest and best city cars. The more refined, better-equipped third-gen i10 continues that trend

  • Skoda Octavia (2020–present)

    The Octavia is a practical and safe family car that now takes a step up market with new tech and hybrid power

  • Mercedes-Benz EQC (2019-present)

    A fantastically refined, spacious and luxurious all-electric SUV, but it comes at a high price and might not be striking enough for some

  • Skoda Kamiq (2019-present)

    Skoda’s smallest SUV offers an appealing blend of practicality, equipment and the latest technology at an affordable price

  • Dacia Sandero Stepway (2013-present)

    After rock bottom cash or finance prices, but want a high driving position and SUV feel? This is your car

  • Skoda Superb (2015-present)

    Big, comfortable and good value: you don't need a Mercedes if you have a Skoda Superb

  • DS 3 Crossback (2019-present)

    The DS 3 Crossback stands out with a distinctive design, but isn't a totally convincing premium car

  • Vauxhall Corsa (2020-present)

    Lighter, more agile and a lot better looking, the latest Corsa is an improvement on its predecessor but it is also a lot more expensive
