SEAT Leon test drive

The new SEAT Leon is a brilliant car. It looks great, it’s practical, it’s quiet and comfortable to drive, and comes packed full of kit.

Audi A3

The Audi A3 range has been praised for its refinement and improved driving dynamics, but criticised for a clunky touchscreen interior.

Skoda Octavia Estate test drive

As a car for the rigours of the everyday, the new Skoda Octavia is well-suited, thanks to great practicality and a comfortable ride.

Kia Soul EV

The Kia Soul EV has received positive reviews with praise for its quirky styling. It's decent to drive, with a good range compared to many electric cars.

Mini Electric

The Mini Electric has been praised for the way it drives, but criticised for its poor range compared to similarly-priced electric cars.

SEAT Mii Electric

The SEAT Mii Electric is one of the more affordable options in the electric car market, but its Euro NCAP safety rating is sub-par.

Honda e test drive

The Honda e is a groundbreaking little car, and should prove immensely popular. For nippy city driving, it more than fits the bill.

Skoda Fabia

The Skoda Fabia has received generally good reviews, and is considered both practical and good value for money – if not very exciting.

Vauxhall Corsa-e

Initial reviews of the Vauxhall Corsa-e have been positive, and the electric model's Expert Rating is notably better than the regular Corsa.

Abarth 595

The Abarth 595 is a car you buy with heart rather than head, with practical shortcomings and a high price, but it's great fun to drive.

Volkswagen Up! test drive

Though the Volkswagen Up! is getting old, it’s still a good car. It's comfortable around town and won’t fall over during longer journeys.

Kia Rio

The Kia Rio has received mixed media reviews, with an overall Expert Rating places it firmly in the bottom half of the supermini class.
