Hyundai i10 test drive

The Hyundai i10 may be a city car but it feels like anything but a budget offering. The downside, unfortunately, is a poor safety rating.

Volkswagen ID.3

The Volkswagen ID.3 has been praised for its battery range, comfort and ease of use. However, it's expensive compared to a Golf.

Ford Fiesta ST

The Ford Fiesta ST has received many outstanding media reviews and holds an Expert Rating of 90%, which indicates universal acclaim.

Mazda 2

The Mazda 2 has received generally positive media reviews, although it's no longer considered to rank among the best in its class.

Renault Zoe test drive

The Renault Zoe is a smart, chic supermini, and its electric powertrain provides an impressive range for such a small car.

Mini Electric test drive

There's plenty to like about the Mini Electric, being great fun to drive. But the battery will do no favours for those with range anxiety.

Honda e

The Honda e electric city car has been praised for its retro-futuristic styling and technology, but criticised for poor battery range.

Renault Mégane

The Renault Mégane has distinctive styling and generous equipment levels, but it's not as spacious and lacks the quality of its main rivals.

Suzuki Swift Sport Hybrid test drive

Hybrid or not, the Suzuki Swift Sport remains huge fun to drive. But a hefty price hike means it's not as easy to recommend as it once was.

Toyota Yaris test drive

Practicality levels may be down ever so slightly, but the new Toyota Yaris remains a truly attractive proposition in the small car segment.

Skoda Octavia

Based on initial UK reviews, the Skoda Octavia holds an outstanding score of 84% on The Car Expert's unique Expert Rating index.

Toyota Yaris

The fourth-generation Toyota Yaris has a clever hybrid powertrain to maximise electric power, but the interior isn't as nice as some rivals.
