"What's the 'perfect car'? For me, after test driving thousands of cars in my lifetime, the perfect car is the one I'm driving now: a BMW 320d ED"
Big improvement over its predecessor in terms of quality - it's also efficient, comfortable and distinctively styled.
Improved Verso is refined, efficient and very practical. It's also easier to drive and park than you'd expect.
Comfortable, refined, easy to drive and practical, the CR-V is a great all-round car, but don't expect it to work off-road.
Prodigious power paired with opulent luxury. Power comes from either a W12 or a V8 petrol engine.
The 2013 Toyota Auris is lighter, lower and leaner than the 2007 – 2012 Auris it replaces. It’s also a lot better looking.
The B-MAX has no door pillars, making access to the cabin very easy, and yet it still scored five stars in NCAP tests.
Well built, efficient and easy to drive, the cabin is so well packaged it feels much larger than it looks.
It might not be the most luxurious and finely trimmed car, but there's nothing to touch it for the money.
