New car reviews for all makes and models

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.

Skoda Rapid Review

Skoda Rapid 2015

Our Rating 3 / 5

As Skoda’s product line-up has gotten ever more mainstream it’s left a gap for more value-driven buyers of the brand. The Rapid fills that void, doing what Skoda does well, offering class above space at a price that suits.

Nissan Pulsar Review

Nissan Pulsar 2015

Our Rating 3 / 5

Nissan gave up on family hatchback sales a while back, focusing instead on building crossovers like the Qashqai and Juke. Thing is, not everyone wants a crossover, so the Pulsar was launched.

Ford Mondeo Review

Ford Mondeo 2015

Our Rating 3 / 5

The Ford Mondeo has always stood out among its mainstream rivals as the car you’ll actually want to drive. It’s traditionally been good enough to champion it over its premium alternatives, but with the current Mondeo things have gone a bit awry; it’s bigger, but some of the magic has gone - while its contemporaries have caught up.

Ford Mondeo Review

Ford Mondeo 2014

Our Rating 3 / 5

The Ford Mondeo is an institution, but competition in the D-segment family car market has never been so fierce. How does the new car stack up?

Suzuki Celerio Review

Suzuki Celerio 2014

Our Rating 3 / 5

If you prefer function over form, then the new Celerio is a car that you should consider.

Volkswagen Amarok Review

Volkswagen Amarok 2014

Our Rating 3 / 5

From a business buyer's point of view (and not many people buy pick-ups as a domestic vehicle) two boggo Amaroks make more sense than one blingy one.

Kia Soul Review

Kia Soul 2014

Our Rating 3 / 5

Same quirky style for Kia's likeable Soul crossover, but this time around it's bigger and of higher quality. Here's our first drive of the new car, on Irish soil.

Mazda 3 Review

Mazda 3 2014

Our Rating 3 / 5

Buyers will be seduced by the gorgeous lines of the new Mazda3 saloon, and it drives as well as it looks, but its relatively high starting price and lack of a smaller diesel engine will keep it off many buyers' shortlists.
