Peugeot 2008 test drive

If you’re looking for a small SUV that’s a bit more interesting than most, you could be swayed by the dynamic styling of the Peugeot 2008.

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.

DS 3 Crossback E-Tense

The DS 3 Crossback E-Tense electric SUV has been praised for its distinctive styling, but it's expensive and the battery range is sub-par.

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.

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.

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.

BMW X2

The BMW X2's Expert Rating places it firmly in the small SUV midfield. It's good to drive but not as practical as most rivals.

Jeep Renegade 4xe test drive

While the interior is neither particularly practical nor upmarket, the Jeep Renegade 4xe is worth considering for its low running costs.

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.
