If you love the regular and super popular VW Golf but fancy making the switch to electricity, there’s no reason why you couldn’t love the new Volkswagen e-Golf Hatchback, too. It’s got all the hallmarks of a traditional Golf - including top-notch build quality and reliability - and emits absolutely no CO2 and gets energy-saving regenerative brakes as standard.
The new BMW 6 Series Gran Diesel Coupe is elegant, fairly economical and has sporty pretensions. If you want something a bit more luxurious than the 5 Series, it ticks a lot of boxes.
It’s a lot like the two-door 6 Series in many ways but gets two more doors and more length. It also boasts more space in the rear as well as a larger boot. Overall, it’s one of the most accommodating if expensive BMW’s on the market.
The new Ford Transit Courier Kombi Diesel Estate is Ford’s premium van-derived car. It’s cheaper than the Mercedes Citan Compact, the new Ford Transit Courier Kombi Diesel, but arguably offers just as much value. It’s the most people-friendly of all Ford’s popular Transits, and comes with van-based practicality.There was a time when a Ford Transit was just a van. It was about the same time when phones were just for telephoning people and having a chat. In 2017, though, phones can be used to transfer cash, and Ford Transits can carry seven people. What’s the world coming to?!
OSV investigates with our Ford Transit Courier Kombi Diesel Estate review.
The new Hyundai i800 Diesel Estate satisfies needs. The only reason you buy van-derived cars like this is because you need it, not necessarily because you want it. It’s certainly not the vehicle you dreamt of owning when you were a kid!“When I grow up, I wanna drive a Hyundai i800!”
With eight seats and the space to transport large items across town, it serves a purpose. It’s ideal for large families and anyone who needs better business transport. If you’re in either demographic, it represents really good value for money. With more seats and more capacity than your average people carrier, it’s certainly a compelling proposition.

There are a lot of family car’s on offer, and the Hyundai i30 Hatchback has a lot to do if it’s to convince you it should be your next purchase. So how does a 7-year warranty, lots of safety equipment and a genuinely excellent motorway cruiser sound?Yep, the i30 has lots of strengths for young families. There is an engine for everyone, it’s handsome, and it fits nicely into the average UK family’s budget.

What does less than £200 a month get you these days? How about a five-door supermini that’s easy to drive, at home on the motorway, and spacious?The new Hyundai IX20 Hatchback might be a small supermini, but it aims to be as useful as pocket-sized MPV. It’s practical, versatile and offers lots of interior space.
Its 440-litre boot is one of the biggest in this class, too, and defines the car’s size. If you want the cuteness, affordability and hassle-free driving experience of a supermini but want to get more use out of it, this one is well worth a test drive.

The new Ford Tourneo Connect MPV is smaller than the Grand version but bigger than the C-MAX. It’s cheaper than the C-MAX, and represents huge value for money. Visibility is great, head and legroom are fantastic, and running costs are low. It’s also one of the safest MPV’s around.
It’s also not that bad looking, even if you can see its van-based origins. That’s partly to be expected, however, as the Ford Transit is a distant relation. Other van-like aspects include uncomfortable seats and rather noisy engines.

The new Honda HR-V Hatchback must be the envy of its rivals. And if you own one before any of your neighbours, you could be the envy of your street. It’s a big, spacious Hatchback that boasts more equipment and room than its competitors. But despite its size, it’s also incredibly stylish.In other words, it’s neither one nor the other - it’s both at the same time. It’s rugged and a total babe. It’s also confident on the road, goes well with a full load, and has an upmarket interior.

The new Honda Civic Tourer is at the pricier end of things, but you get what you pay for. Here, that means reliability, a huge boot and efficient diesel engines.Even better, it’s based on the slick and massively popular Honda Hatchback.
In some ways, Honda can’t go wrong with this car. They were resistant to developing it in the first place, with consumer demand convincing them to give it a go. As such, it’s already got people waiting in line to try it out. If you were one of the Civic fans who wanted a super-sized version, join OSV as we take a look at what this one’s all about with our Honda Civic Tourer review.
The new Ford S-MAX MPV is a seven-seater that’s stylish, easy to drive, and comfortable. It’s easily one of the best options on the market if you need family-friendly practicality, but don’t want to sacrifice driving dynamics.However, if you’re operating on a bit of a budget, you might need to stretch it a little. Compared to rivals, the S-MAX’s starting prices are a tad higher. Still, you get exactly what you pay for, which here includes reliability, safety and lots of standard kits.
