  • Fiat Bravo 1.4 T-Jet 150 (2007) review

    Price:  £13,395

    11 August 2007 by Mark Nichol

    A Fiat family hatchback...that actually looks good. What's going on? Yes, Fiat is in the midst of a resurgence, what with the very pleasant Grande Punto, the cheery Panda and the soon-to-be-a-legend...

  • Ford Focus FFV (2007) review

    Price:  £14,795

    31 July 2007 by Ben Oliver

    Aren’t alternative fuel vehicles meant to look like escapees from Buck Rogers? They used to, but Ford has the right idea. The only difference between this and a conventional Focus is a tiny ‘FFV’...

  • Hyundai i30 1.6 CRDi (2007) review

    Price:  £12,295

    28 June 2007 by Guy Bird

    Is this the new Kia Cee’d in disguise? Not really. The Hyundai i30 may share the same basic platform and engines as the Cee’d by sister brand Kia but its exterior, interior and ride and handling...

  • Honda Civic IMA CAR (2007) review

    Price:  £19,300

    27 June 2007 by Ben Oliver

    The poor man’s Prius? The Civic IMA is certainly cheaper than the better-known Prius, starting from £16,300 to the Toyota’s £17,765. Its propulsion principle is the same; IMA stands for Integrated...

  • Mazda 3 2.0D (2007) review

    Price:  £16,750

    08 May 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    This Mazda looks vaguely familiar – the 3 is hardly new is it? True, but the new turbo diesel engine under its bonnet is. Mazda has finally got around to boosting its 3 line-up with the big 2.0-litre...

  • Fiat Bravo 1.9 JTD (2007) review

    Price:  £13,795

    01 February 2007 by Gavin Green

    A new Fiat Bravo! It replaces the Stilo but, given how unpopular the Stilo was, should anyone care? Yes, the old Stilo was one of those yawningly average cars that rather summed up Fiat’s problems.

  • Toyota Auris 1.6 (2007) review

    Price:  £12,495

    16 January 2007 by Tim Pollard

    The Toyota What? I thought you said this was the new Corolla It is! Toyota openly acknowledges the Corolla has become a bit, well, dull and is plotting a stepchange with this important new small...

  • Kia Ceed 1.6 S (2006) review

    Price:  £11,545

    30 November 2006 by Richard Aucock

    What's this: a Korean Focus rival with a grammar-busting name? Absolutely. This is the car Kia calls the Cee'd, with a rogue apostrophe to make punctuation pedant Lynne Truss – and us – blow...

  • Subaru Impreza 1.5R (2006) review

    Price:  £12,495

    22 November 2006 by Chris Chilton

    What do you mean 1.5? Is that the boost level measured in bars? Or the time it takes to get to 60mph? Er, not quite. It refers to the size of the engine in good old-fashioned cubic centimetres. There...

  • Honda Civic Type S 2.2 CDTi (2006) review

    Price:  £16,567

    11 October 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Looks tasty, what’s it all about? It’s basically a regular Civic that’s raided the Type R’s glam-rock make up box. It’s also the nearest we’ll come to the Type R proper until March 2007 when you’ll be...

  • Dodge Caliber 1.8 S (2007) review

    Price:  £12,495

    27 July 2006 by Ken Gibson

    Another Focus wannabee? Say hello to the Dodge Caliber, America's answer to the ubiquitous Ford but with a big dose of attitude thrown in for free. The Yanks think it's a small car, but they think...
