Good: Great performance and wonderful engine, easy to drive quickly, seven-speed automatic transmission works well, the only £30,000 hairy chested sportscar.
Bad: Visibility isn't good, manual gearbox loved by some drivers but not by others, thirsty and expensive to run.
Good: Great feelgood roadster, looks and sounds great, V6 engine delivers storming performance.
Bad: Firm ride on 19-inch wheels, high CO2 means expensive tax, far from economical.
Good: Mindblowingly quick and astonishingly capable, twin-turbo V6 develops 560PS, good value compared to anything else as fast.
Bad: Automatic only, not suited to traffic or driving in town, tricky to park, interior quality and finish are poor given the price.
Good: Radical looks make it stand out, an appealing mix between a hatch and an SUV, seats four in comfort, impressive direct injected 190bhp 1.6-litre turbo drives well.
Bad: Boot is on the small side, 4WD only comes with CVT auto, small rear windows make the back feel gloomy.
Good: The first sensible sized electric car at a sensible price, ideal as a second car for short suburban runs or for use in the city, drives and handles very well indeed, the best EV so far.
Bad: Limited range of 100 miles means it cannot fully replace a petrol, diesel or hybrid family car, limited supply and at £25,990 not cheap.
Good: Low emissions and fuel consumption from 1.2-litre engine. Roomy and seats five. Decent value for money. Bluetooth as standard.
Bad: Lags behind most other small hatchbacks. Not as much hip and shoulder room as headroom. Interior feels cheap in places. Unexciting to drive. Air con not standard on Visia.
Good: Comfortable SUV, reasonable performance, pleasant and easy to drive, 2.5-litre diesel finally introduced in 2010.
Bad: Petrol model is bulky and thirsty, big triangular blindspot at base of nearside A pillar, diesel expensive at £37,950.
Good: Reliable and feels good quality, car-like interior, was the fastest pick-up in its class, useful rear hinged rear doors on crew cab.
Bad: Bigger than L200 and doesn't handle as well.
Good: Good quality small van, available as a useful seven seat MPV with reasonable luggage space, 1.5 litre dCi is economical, rides much better than most vans.
Bad: Fairly utilitarian.
Good: Nissan's version of the Renault Master, wide choice of versions and bodystyles, long service intervals.
Bad: Interior quality not up to the standard of a Volkswagen Crafter.
Good: Rugged looks, seven seats, strong performance, tidy handling and very capable off road, good value for money.
Bad: Adults will find the rearmost seats rather cramped, vague gearshift.
Good: Cheap to buy new, low CO2 emissions and high economy mean it's cheap to run, available with an automatic gearbox, nicer seats than near identical Suzuki Alto.
Bad: Low rent features like stalk adjustable door mirrors.
Good: Available as a nine-seater, reasonable safety kit and decent fuel economy.
Bad: Limited choice of trim levels.
Good: Very comfortable with a good quality ride, rugged and stylish looks, feels well built, strong dCi diesels, elevated driving position and good forward visibility.
Bad: Rear seats not as spacious as you'd expect, can be crashy over potholes on larger wheels, 2.0 diesel particulate filter problems, some quality problems.
Good: Slightly larger version of Qashqai with seven seats, impressive economy from most engines incuding 2.0-litre petrol, pleasant to drive.
Bad: Rearmost seats are for small children only, top models are pricey.
Good: Excellent drive on tarmac and very competent off road, large boot, plenty of standard equipment.
Bad: Starting to feel dated, lacks refinement, new 2.0 dCi 150 short of lowdown pull, has been trouble with DPFs on diesels.
