Vauxhall GrandLand X

The last time Vauxhall tried to make an SUV, we got the entirely forgettable Antara. But now it’s back in the game with the all-new Grandland X. In development since 2013, the new car shares most of its mechanical underpinnings with the current…

Mazda CX-5 Facelift

The Mazda CX-5 Facelift is a rival for the Seat Ateca, Volkswagen Tiguan and BMW X1 among others. It sits on the same basic platform as the five-year-old car it replaces. The wheelbase is the same, but it's 10mm longer, 35mm lower and much sharper-looking…

Volvo V90

Volvo it's based on the Swedish carmaker's large executive saloon, the S90, and while it's actually a copule of centimetres shorter than that car (for styling reasons), the V90 still has a large boot behind its five seats. All V90's are automatics,…

Jaguar XF

The Jaguar XF has an all-new, aluminium-intensive chassis, new engines and enough computer firepower to outwit and Airbus A380. Its cab-back design and tight front and rear overhangs are visual highlights, altough it does look suspiciously similar…

Land Rover Discovery Sport

While the full-size Land Rover Discovery is as capable off road as it is comfortable and practical on it, it's always been an expensive choice. However, this smaller Land Rover Discovery Sport is designed to bring similar qualities to a wider…

BMW 5 Series Touring

It’s BMW’s biggest estate. As big as almost anyone else’s. But as we’ll see it’s also a 5 Series. This cabin has had a lot of love from the designers and those who build it. Attention to detail is obsessive. Trims and finishes…

Volkswagen Polo

The Volkswagen Polo is getting old, but it's still one of our favourite superminis. It offers a blend of performance, practicality, price and efficiency that's hard to beat, and has seen off newer arrivals in our most recent tests. The boot…

Volvo S90

If you’re bored of big Germanic executive saloons, the Volvo S90 could be the breath of fresh Scandinavian air that you’ve been looking for. It's a large executive saloon that shares a platform (and much of its interior) with the V90 estate…

Volvo XC60

The original XC60 ('08-16) was a big hit and even picked up our SUV of the Year award. However, this latest model is up against much tougher competition than its predecessor, the best of which includes the Audi Q5 and the Land Rover Discovery…

Suzuki Celerio

The Celerio is Suzuki's smallest and cheapest model and a rival to other budget-focused city cars such as the Skoda Citigo and Vauxhall Viva. With such a low entry price, you’d be forgiven for thinking the Celerio was about as basic as a…

Audi A7

Think of the Audi A7 Sportback as a larger, more upmarket version of the low-slung five-door Audi A5 Sportback. It’s a fast, luxurious and comfortable four-seater that is similar in concept to the Mercedes CLS, in that it offers coupe-like…

Hyundai Kona

Branded as a ‘true SUV’ by its maker – with no small amount of poetic licence – the 175bhp turbocharged 1.6-litre Kona comes complete with all-wheel drive and dual-clutch auto transmission. The Kona's fundamental driving position is…

The new Volkswagen T-Roc 2018

Europe is Volkswagen’s engine room. It’s the biggest car-maker there by quite some margin and it’s not looking to get any smaller than Dieselgate made it, so here comes the T-Roc. Built off the Golf’s core architecture, the T-Roc is…

Nissan Navara

Despite their rudimentary construction, pick-ups remain a common sight on our roads. They’re classed as light commercial vehicles (LCVs) for tax purposes, so are a cheaper alternative to traditional large SUV company cars. Nissan’s Navara…

Vauxhall Meriva

The Meriva compact MPV’s stand-out feature is a novel rearwards-opening rear passenger door set-up. It is reasonably effective, but it doesn’t create as wide an opening as the sliding side doors used on the Ford B-MAX. The Meriva also offers…
