Vauxhall Astra Electric

The Vauxhall Astra Electric is not a bad vehicle at all, but the strength and pricing of other family EVs makes it hard to recommend.

Peugeot 508 (2011 to 2018)

The original Peugeot 508 was a stylish alternative to the Vauxhall Insignia and Ford Mondeo, but it couldn't match premium-brand rivals.

MG 5

Its not very exciting, but it's not trying to be. The MG 5 is a budget EV family car whose one job is to undercut everything else on price.

Mercedes-AMG CLA 45

A performance-enhanced saloon and estate, the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 offers serious pace for an eye-watering price tag.

Ford Focus ST (2012 to 2018)

The third-generation Ford Focus ST wasn't the most agile hot hatch around, but its performance and practicality made it an appealing package.

Audi A6 (2011 to 2018)

The fourth-generation Audi A6 was a refined saloon and estate with a upmarket interior, but its rivals were more fun on the road.

Fiat Tipo

The Fiat Tipo has received generally poor media reviews, which has resulted in an Expert Rating that is currently the lowest in its class.

Vauxhall Astra

Attractive, capable and affordable - reviewers agree that the Vauxhall Astra is an interesting proposition, but rivals are more entertaining on the road.
