  • Alfa Romeo 159 (2006-2011)

    Alfa Romeo 1591

    New price: £20,380 - £29,540

    Alfa's 159 is sporty, stylish and striking to look at - but how does it drive? We've road tested the diesel saloon and estate versions.
  • Alpina D3 (2006-2012)

    Alpina D3 saloon

    New price: £31,650 - £59,925

    The BMW 3 Series-based Alpina D3 is an interesting and unusual choice

    New price: £22,185 - £40,340

    Audi is famed for its solid family cars, but can the A4 saloon, built from 2008 and facelifted in 2012, match the BMW 3 Series? Read on.

    BMW 3 Series 06 4

    New price: £22,690 - £55,270

    The popular BMW 3 Series saloon is a family-sized car to be reckoned with, possessing excellent handling and refinement. And it's a lot more affordable than the latest version.
  • BMW 3 Series GT (2013-)

    BMW-3GT-1

    New price: £29,175 - £45,540

    It's a 3 Series, but not as we know it - the GT is BMW's first 3 Series-based hatchback.

    BMW 3 2012 1

    New price: £23,545 - £58,815

  • Citroën C5 (2008-)

    Citroen C5

    New price: £20,015 - £30,170

    A French car advertised as 'very Germanic', the new Citroën C5 is meant to be more refined than the old C5. We put the Teutonic claims to the test.
  • Citroën DS5 (2012-)

    Citroen DS5 1

    New price: £22,435 - £33,715

    The largest member of Citroën's DS 'character' range is the DS5, launched in 2012. Based on the C5, does it have the qualities needed in this competitive market?

    Ford Mondeo 2012 1

    New price: £15,970 - £29,955

    Ford's Mondeo takes on its large car rivals with smart looks and a serious amount of space. We find out if that's enough in this tough market.
  • Ford Mondeo (2014-)

    Ford Mondeo 01

    Audi A4 Gen 2 1

    Used price: From £2,095

    The Audi A4 and estate (Avant) range, built from 2000-2008. Good fit and finish, but enough to rival the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and BMW 3-Series?
