Abarth 595 Esseesse test drive

As something to give you a bit of a laugh, the Abarth 595 Esseesse is a compelling thing. If we’re honest though, it’s a bit rubbish as a serious hot hatch.

Citroën C1

The Citroën C1 has received generally positive media reviews, mainly for its low running costs, but is now dated and off the pace of newer city car rivals.

Volkswagen Golf

Media reviews of the new Volkswagen Golf have been very positive, although we are adding more reviews on a regular basis so this may change over time.

Skoda Superb

The Skoda Superb has received many outstanding media reviews and awards for its practicality, design and value for money.

Peugeot 208

Media reviews for the Peugeot 208 have been positive, with praise for its design and build quality. However, poor ride and handling have been criticised.

Hyundai i10

The Hyundai i10 has received very positive media reviews, with particular praise for its interior quality, equipment levels and driving experience.

Fiat 500 Hybrid test drive

The Fiat 500 Hybrid (actually a mild hybrid) is smooth and efficient, but it offers limited performance and is little better than the regular petrol model.

The go-faster Audi A1 S line Competition is an appealing hot-hatch prospect – if you can stomach the £25,000 price tag.
