Good: Huge amount of personalisation for interior and exterior. Good level of standard equipment.
Bad: Limited interior space. Dated engines. Not particularly good to drive.
Good: First electric car with an indefinite self-powered range. Qualifies for Government £5,000 grant bringing price down to £29,000. VED and London Congestion Charge Exempt.
Bad: Unimpressive fuel consumption when running in petrol mode. Model dropped in 2014 due to poor sales.
Good: Vauxhall version of the Chevrolet Captiva. Reasonably good looking. Improved for 2011 model year.
Bad: Neither the ride quality nor the handling are particularly good. Five seats only. If you want seven seats you have to go for a Chevrolet Captiva.
Good: Good combination of ride quality, steering and safe handling. Strong yet economical 1.4 turbo engine. Frugal CDTi diesels. Neatly styled interior.
Bad: Lesser 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol engines less impressive.
Good: More spacious than previous Astra and promises improved interior quality. Lighter weight should mean better fuel economy.
Bad: Not arriving until November 2015.
Good: Stable and enjoyable handling. Good level of standard equipment. Distinctive styling.
Bad: Visibility poor especially to rear. Interior not dramatically different from the hatchback.
Good: Very practical and spacious. Economical CDTi engines. Not a bad looker for an estate. Decent ride quality. FlexFold seats are a clever touch.
Bad: Uninspiring to drive. Interior lacks sophistication. Eclipsed by the Focus Estate in both quality and handling.
Good: Insignificantly bigger than previous Astra Sport Tourer but with 80 litres more loadspace, up to date engines and latest in-car tech.
Bad: Not arriving until 2016.
Good: Good quality fit and finish. Impressive refinement. Easy to drive.
Bad: Automatic gearbox isn't the best. Not exciting to drive. Lacks the prestige of a premium convertible.
Good: Essentially a rebadged Fiat Doblo Cargo. Good value for money. Economical CDTi diesel engines. Petrol version also available.
Bad: Smaller diesels are noisy at motorway speeds.
Good: Much improved over previous Corsa. Better quality interior with a more upmarket feel. Impressive 1.0 Ecotec engine is the pick of the range. Good for around town.
Bad: Baffling number of different trim levels. Steering is slow and lacks feel. Other hatchbacks are more enjoyable to drive.
Good: Improved comfort with better seats. Increased payload. Very well equipped as standard with DAB and electric windows. Steering now adjusts for both height and reach.
Bad: 1.3 CDTi engine is still quite noisy. Strong competition from the Fiesta van. A revamp rather than an all-new van.
Good: Handles reasonably well. Decent ride quality. European Car of the Year 2009. Much improved from 2013 facelift.
Bad: Centre rear seat not comfortable for adults. Original engines all timing belt not chain. Poor quality interior.
Good: Good load carrying ability. Comfortable cruiser. Much improved from 2013 facelift.
Bad: Noisy diesels. Not as good to drive as other estates.
Good: Practical and easy to get in and out of. Facelifted 2014 models get impressive new 1.6-litre CDTi engine.
Bad: Spacesaver spare a £105 option. Pricey top models. Old 1.7-litre CDTi best avoided. Suspension is set-up for sportiness rather than comfort.
Good: Small SUV similar to the Skoda Yeti. Comes as a 4x4 or with standard front-wheel drive. Good rear passenger room. Available with efficient 1.7 CDTi.
Bad: Not a great looker. Lags behind other small SUVs in terms of refinement and performance. Expensive for what it is. Lacking in quality. Noisy at speed.
Good: Low loading sill with the front-wheel drive models makes it easy to lift heavy goods in and out. Low running costs and 25,000-mile service intervals.
Bad: No standard ESP for front-drive models. Insubstantial-feeling plastics. The 100PS model feels underpowered on motorway.
Good: Functional and affordable city car. Well-equipped as standard. All models get five-doors.
Bad: Painfully slow. Dull interior. Isn't as fun to drive as its rivals.
Good: Comes with impressive 1.6-litre diesel. Very quiet and refined on the move. Much improved interior. DAB as standard. Similar cargo area design means existing racking and conversions will still fit.
Bad: Doesn't quite feel as high quality as the Transit Custom.
Good: Huge amount of performance and rear-drive fun for the money. Better looking than Monaro and with four doors.
Bad: Thirsty. Group 50 insurance.
Good: Sits above standard Zafira in Vauxhall line-up. Has same Flex7 seven-seat system. Spacious interior.
Bad: Expensive. Not particularly outstanding in any area.
