Ford Ka+ Active review

Ford has updated its smallest car and added an SUV-styled version. Will the Ka+ Active hit the right note?

Vauxhall Viva Rocks review

The Vauxhall Viva Rocks is adequate in performance, quality and looks. Its biggest problem is that rivals like the Suzuki Ignis leave it behind in all areas.

Suzuki Ignis review

Suzuki launches its Ignis small crossover, hoping to sell it on the combination of attractive styling and deceptive interior space.

Vauxhall Viva review

The new Vauxhall Viva is a small car for the masses. It will get from A to B very well while providing Vauxhall with a bigger slice of the small car market.
