Best Small Car Award goes to the Ford Fiesta, The UK’s most popular car. The leader of the supermini class is punchy and great to drive yet surprisingly comfortable for a car in its class on longer journeys. Throw in a long-list of safety features as standard, a good selection of trim-levels and engine combinations with some very frugal diesel and the thrifty ecoboost petrol engines and you’ll find there’s something for just about everybody.
Best Small Family Car goes to the Seat Leon Hatchback. The newest release of the Seat Leon hatchback offers a viable alternative to more established rivals like the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf. The Leon catches the eye both inside and out offers an excellent range of engines with the most economical offering up to 85mpg. The low running costs are combined with the traditional competitive Seat price-tag. Some people may be cautious about buying a Seat Leon because of ‘cheap’ reputation but the Leon really delivers an excellent package for your money and it’s a real looker!
Best Large Family Car goes to the Skoda Octavia. We’re cheating a bit by combining estate and hatchback versions ….. If you’re in the market for either you won’t go far wrong with the Octavia, it offers an excellent range of engines with the most frugal delivering up to 74mpg and road tax exemption. The Skoda Octavia scored the full 5 stars in NCAP safety tests and has gained a reputation for superb build quality and reliability. Throw-in good levels of equipment across the range and competitive pricing and you have an excellent estate or hatchback family car.
Best MPV goes to the Citron C4 Picasso and it’s big brother the Grand C4 Picasso the two models offer spacious 5 And 7 seat options respectively. There are plenty of engine options and equipment available. We recommend the Exclusive model with the 1.6-litre diesel engine and manual transmission. The engine has enough grunt to pull a full car and the Executive trim level offers excellent levels of equipment. Take that all into account and we still like the unique eye-catching looks of the C4 Picasso that help it stand out in the crowd!
Best SUV goes to the Nissan Qashqai. The SUV market has grown substantially in the last few years with new models jumping on the growing SUV market. The Nissan Qashqai has faced stiff opposition but the latest incarnation in our opinion builds on what is an outstanding car. It boasts stunning looks, excellent levels of equipment and technology along with plenty of engine options with 2 and 4 WD models available. The Qashqai is the most complete SUV in our opinion.
Best Luxury Car goes to the Mercedes S-Class. The S-Class is considered Mercedes most luxurious model and is loaded with technology and equipment especially with the executive pack added-in. Engine options are a V6 diesel, V8 petrol and a petrol-electric hybrid model all of which offer a quiet/smooth drive cruising on the motorway. The price is high but for this amount of comfort, luxury and equipment we think The stunning Mercedes S-Class worth it!
