Bad: Hybrid isn't the best to drive.
Good: Efficient new 1.8 Valvematic petrol engines almost as economical as diesels. Excellent Multidrive S CVT. Good quality ride. Very reliable.
Bad: Dull image. No hatchback. Not as much fun to drive as a Mondeo or Mazda6.
Good: The best looking of the new Citroen C1, Peugeot 108 and Toyota Aygo trio. Improvements in quality and refinement over predecessor. Lots of options for customising. Should be good to drive.
Bad: Not on sale until summer 2014.

Bad: More expensive new than a Range Rover and nowhere near as good, doesn't feel very upmarket considering the price, wallowy on the road, generic looks inside and out.
Good: The best hybrid car on the market with amazing fuel economy and low CO2 emissions. Zero car tax. Spacious cabin makes it a realistic family car. Plug-In version available.
Bad: Not so efficient for long distances at motorway speeds where some diesel cars still beat it. Can feel strained when accelerating hard.
Good: Seven seat MPV comes in at 96g/km for T4 version so is VED free.
