Large family

1
Good: Fantastic to drive. Refined and comfortable to travel in. Massively roomy cabin and huge boot. Excellent value. Efficient ECOnetic and EcoBoost models.
Bad: Large size means it can be tricky to park without parking sensors. Top model list prices quite high new.
2
Good: Limousine-like amounts of rear legroom. Clever dual tailgate means it's both a hatch and a saloon. GreenLine model is very economical. A lot of car for the money.
Bad: Earlier 1.9 TDI engine is noisy and lacks refinement. No rear wiper. Usual hesitation from DSG. Columbus navigation prone to failure after about four years.
3
Good: Very comfortable and refined. Good ride quality on broken surfaces. Wide range of engines including excellent TSI petrols, BlueMotion CO2 figure now 109g/km.
Bad: A thorough facelift rather than an all new car.
4
Good: Neatly styled, entry-level models a good balance of ride and handling, excellent 2.2-litre diesel engine.
Bad: Saloon version not popular, DPF problem with 2.0 diesels can lead to engine failure, No spare but full size spare available at £70.
5
Good: Refined and rides smoothly. Well thought out interior. Ideal with 2.2 i-DTEC engine. Robust build quality.
Bad: 2.0-litre and 2.4-litre i-VTEC engines with automatic gearboxes less impressive. No hatchback version.
6
Good: Efficient 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.
7
Good: Neat interior, Very comfortable. Hydractive suspension isolates driver and passengers from the road. Efficient HDi engines.
Bad: Very little steering 'feel' especially on Hydractive suspension. No hatchback only a saloon or estate.
8
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.
9
Good: 2.0 TDI surprisingly good to drive. Very economical. Exceptionally solid build. Multitronic auto option from 2011. Good value.
