Packed with Skyactiv technology, the Mazda 6 delivers impressive economy, comfort and performance.
Fast, practical and gorgeous, the F-Type Coupe ticks all of the boxes for the definitive grand tourer.
It may not look especially different but this is the all new Porsche Boxster with more power and performance than ever before.
The cheapest of the new Audi A3 Cabrios turns out to be the 'sweet spot' of the range, with enough seat and luggage capacity for a family of four.
New Ford Tourneo Connect launches a serious challenge to the Citroen Berlingo Multispace and the Volkswagen Caddy Maxi Life.
The Mercedes-Benz S500 offers a sublime drive and exceptional kit, while the plug-in hybrid model emits just 69g/km.
With a top speed of 155mph, yet a CO2 of 149g/km, the F30 328i is probably the closest to perfection you can get in a medium sized saloon.
The 2013 Ford Fiesta ST is all torque, with 240Nm from 1500-5000rpm and enhanced torque vectoring control to make sure it never gets out of hand.
