Car reviews and road tests
For car buyers who have been put off diesels, the petrol-powered Alfa Romeo Giulia combines 48mpg economy with a sporty driving experience.
The Hyundai IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid has an official economy figure of 256.8mpg, and we recorded a highly impressive real-life 77mpg on a 170 mile motorway drive.
The smart fortwo cabriolet electric drive is a rear-wheel drive, all-electric, two-seater drop-top; if this is what you’re looking for, you’re in luck, but it’s certainly a niche choice.
The new Volkswagen e-Golf has an NEDC range of 186 miles which makes the car much more useable than the previous model.
The Skoda Kodiaq represents good value for money if you’re looking for an efficient seven-seater 4×4.
The MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 plug-in hybrid feels like a completely different car to the diesel model, being much more refined, better to drive, and potentially more economical.
With its folding hard top roof, does the Mazda MX-5 RF still offer the fun and lightweight efficiency of the soft top MX-5 convertible?
The MG GS is practical, affordable and decent to drive overall, but a 1.5-litre petrol engine is the only powertrain option.
The Nissan Micra is a big improvement on the old model in areas including styling, interior quality and the driving experience, but how does it compare to rivals?
The Nissan Juke looks funky and it’s still fun to drive, but it’s been around for a while now, so should you still consider one?
