The UK’s best-selling car, and the car people immediately think of whenever the supermini class is mentioned. For good reason, too. The Fiesta is simply brilliant to drive, with a ride and handling balance that puts many more expensive cars to shame.
The new Astra is among the front-runners in the small family hatchback class, and considering the strength of the competition, that’s praise indeed. Comfortable and engaging to drive, well equipped and easy to live with, it’s an excellent all-rounder.
The E-Class range has many strings to its bow. You can have the car in saloon, estate, coupe and convertible bodystyles, and there’s a wide range of engines and equipment levels to choose from. Choose wisely, though, because some combinations are a lot better than others.
