Range Rover Evoque

The ride and handling people have pulled off something a bit special here. The Evoque might be a Rangie, but there’s nothing wallowy about the way it corners. It attacks windy roads like an excited hot hatch, but still rides with the class…

Land Rover Discovery Sport 2018

While the full-size Land Rover Discovery is as capable off road as it is comfortable and practical on it, it's always been a pricey purchase. The smaller Discovery Sport, then, is designed to bring similar qualities to a wider audience. Even…

The new Volkswagen Polo

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…

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…
