Ford Fiesta

The compact Ford Fiesta builds on the strengths that traditionally made the model so popular – agile handling, sophisticated ride quality and neat styling. This latest version adds a helpful dash of extra practicality and desirability thanks to a cabin that’s larger than before and built from better quality materials.

Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet

If you want a stylish car that neatly balances comfort, luxury and driver appeal, the Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet ticks an awful lot of boxes. It isn’t cheap, but feels every inch its price tag with leather, wood and metal trim all over the cabin and all the joys associated with drop-top motoring.

VW Golf

The VW Golf is a classic all rounder and an extensive update in 2017 brought an improved infotainment system and better engines. The cabin is sensibly laid out and features high quality materials, great visibility and strong refinement. It also strikes a great compromise between feeling agile and controllable, while also absorbing the worst of road imperfections.

Audi Q5

The Audi Q5 is many things to many families, blending a high quality interior with modern styling and a composed, grippy driving experience. There’s loads of space inside for up to five adults and all their luggage, while the MMI infotainment system and Virtual Cockpit help it feel suitably high tech.

SEAT Ibiza

The SEAT Ibiza is the VW Polo’s stylish Spanish cousin so gets slightly slicker styling and a selection of punchy turbo petrol engines. The latest model has been redesigned from the ground up and now has mode interior space than ever before and an ever bigger boot while being faster and more efficient than the car it replaces.

Volvo XC60

If the usual trio of premium German manufacturers fails to stir your emotions, the dashing Volvo XC60 is worth a look. This sizeable premium family SUV has space for five adults and a big boot but, unlike some rivals, focusses of comfort rather than having the sportiest driving experience – something many harassed parents will appreciate.

BMW 5 Series Touring

Some cars are just good at everything and the sheer number of bases BMW 5 Series Touring manages to cover makes it worth shortlisting. Keen drivers will appreciate BMW’s traditionally excellent balance between comfort and handling, while passengers will enjoy the excellent build quality and plentiful space. The gigantic boot on this Touring estate model makes it an even easier pill to swallow.

Peugeot 3008

The last Peugeot 3008 was a left-field part-SUV, part-MPV but the new model manages to be a much more coherent vehicle. With handsome, faceted styling, a well-made cabin with lots of space and a selection of powerful yet efficient turbo petrol and diesel engines, the 3008 is a great all rounder with looks that belong in the class above.

Honda Civic Type R

While having a car that’s comfy and spacious is all very noble, some buyers might want a car with a sense of humour. Thankfully, the new Honda Civic Type R comes with razor-sharp handling, a monstrous turbo petrol engine and immense grip and traction. Despite its many vents and spoilers, it’s actually very practical with a spacious hatchback body and enough ride comfort to make it liveable day-to-day.

Range Rover Velar

The Range Rover Velar is the latest model in the Land Rover lineup and manages to feel a little more futuristic than its brethren thanks to its twin centre-console-mounted screens and digital dials. Like other Range Rover models, it’s very comfy but feels composed on twisty roads – not to mention its immense off-road ability.
