Audi A1

The Audi A1 has received positive media reviews, with praise for its comfort and technology. The A1 Citycarver version disappoints, however.

Toyota Aygo

The Toyota Aygo has received mixed media reviews, with praise for its low running costs but criticism for a lack of overall refinement.

BMW 1 Series

The BMW 1 Series has received positive media reviews, although there has been much discussion about the switch away from rear-wheel drive.

Dacia Sandero

The Dacia Sandero has received generally positive media reviews. It performs poorly in most areas but, when price is considered, it is more competitive.

Abarth 595 Esseesse test drive

As something to give you a bit of a laugh, the Abarth 595 Esseesse is a compelling thing. If we’re honest though, it’s a bit rubbish as a serious hot hatch.

Citroën C1

The Citroën C1 has received generally positive media reviews, mainly for its low running costs, but is now dated and off the pace of newer city car rivals.

Honda Civic Type R

The Honda Civic Type R has received outstanding media reviews and it's currently the top-ranked hot hatch on our Expert Rating index.

Renault Clio test drive

The 2020 Renault Clio is a big step forward compared to its predecessor and makes key improvements to the interior and driving experience.

Vauxhall Corsa

The Vauxhall Corsa has a disappointing Expert Rating for a brand new car, with a score that currently puts it firmly in the bottom half of its class.

Volkswagen Golf

Media reviews of the new Volkswagen Golf have been positive, although its Expert Rating is currently lower than the previous model.

Skoda Superb

The Skoda Superb has received many outstanding media reviews and awards for its practicality, design and value for money.

Peugeot 208

Media reviews for the Peugeot 208 have been positive, with praise for its design and build quality. However, poor ride and handling have been criticised.
