Honest John Awards 2018: Compact premium cars category

A top quality compact executive will feel like condensed luxury, offering prestige, practicality and motorway-friendly comfort - but without massive running costs. Competition is very fierce in this category for the Honest John Awards 2018. 

As always, the shortlist is based on user visits to pages on HonestJohn.co.uk - so they're chosen not by us, but based on how popular they are with you.

Audi A4

Impeccable build quality, secure and predictable handling, and loads of safety and convenience tech make the Audi A4 one of the best all-round cars on sale.

BMW 3 Series

An enduring icon, the BMW 3 Series combines a well-built cabin with plenty of technology, a big range of efficient and powerful engines, and thoroughly enjoyable handling.

Lexus IS

The Lexus IS provides a great blend of quality and styling to make it a genuine competitor against its illustrious German rivals. It impresses on running costs too, with the low-CO2-emitting hybrid version making it an affordable company car.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class

The latest C-Class boasts huge improvements over its predecessor, most notably its stunning cabin. It's a lot better to drive too, which puts it wheel-to-wheel with the BMW 3 Series. 

Alfa Romeo Giulia

The Giulia is a bit a dark horse in this category, offering distinctive looks and a range of well-performing engines. Claimed economy is also impressive - which is good news for company car drivers.
