Mazda 3 Review

Mazda 3 2016

Our Rating 4 / 5

We've always liked the Mazda3, but sales in Ireland were stymied somewhat by the fact that the only diesel was a 2.2-litre - and Irish buyers still favour smaller engines. Now with an efficient new 1.5-litre unit under the bonnet it's ready to conquer the C-segment.

Volkswagen Touran Review

Volkswagen Touran 2016

Our Rating 4 / 5

Volkswagen has launched a brand new Touran MPV. Still seats seven, but the premium quotient has been ramped up.

Honda HR-V Review

Honda HR-V 2016

Nissan Qashqai Review

Nissan Qashqai 2016

Our Rating 4 / 5

Nissan defined the crossover marketplace in 2007 with the introduction of the original Qashqai and it has dominated since. Little wonder then that this second-generation still has most of its rivals playing catch-up. An impressive all-rounder, it’s difficult to argue against it, though its omnipresence is its undoing.

Volkswagen Passat Review

Volkswagen Passat 2016

Our Rating 4 / 5

Its predecessor sold well in Ireland and around the world, so it’s little surprise that with the new Passat, Volkswagen has stuck to its impressive, proven formula. A little bit predictable as a result perhaps, but the execution is exceptional, and it’s undeniably more alluring than its mainstream competition.

Kia Sportage Review

Kia Sportage 2015

Our Rating 3 / 5

If any car in the Kia range could be described as a signal that the Korean company has arrived then the Sportage is surely it. Stylish, capable and desirable even, the Kia Sportage may be due for imminent replacement, but it's still good.

Honda Jazz Review

Honda Jazz 2016

Our Rating 3 / 5

If you’re after the most cleverly packaged supermini out there, then look no further than the Honda Jazz. The boot’s as big as a Volkswagen Golf's, while the build quality is impeccable. Shame it's a little expensive.

Toyota Yaris Review

Toyota Yaris 2016

Our Rating 3 / 5

The supermini marketplace might be all about small cars, but it’s a huge marketplace. That explains Toyota’s recent push to redevelop the Yaris to increase sales. We wouldn't call it a bad car, but it is an unexceptional one. In this marketplace that matters, and while improved it’s still a middle-runner among its rivals.
