New Large cars

52 New Large cars reviews available

  • Skoda Superb (2008-2015)

    Skoda Superb 2013 1

    New price: £17,110 - £32,355

    The Skoda Superb is called a 'saloonback' as it has both a hatchback and a saloon boot. The Which? team finds out if its as good as it seems.
  • Subaru Legacy (2003-2009)

    Subaru Legacy 1

    New price: £19,393 - £30,623

    Subaru's quirky, 4WD alternative to a 5 Series or Volvo V70
  • Subaru Legacy (2009-2013)

    subaru legacy

    New price: £22,735 - £36,010

    The Subaru Legacy and raised-ride-height Outback are relatively rare, but the four-wheel-drive chassis appeals to some drivers. Which? takes a closer look.
  • Suzuki Kizashi (2012-2013)

    Suzuki Kizashi 1

    New price: £21,735 - £21,735

    Large saloons with four-wheel drive are rare indeed. Can the Suzuki Kizashi score highly in a very narrow market niche?
  • Toyota Avensis (2009-)

    Toyota-Avensis-saloon-2015-01

    New price: £16,975 - £28,745

    Toyota sticks to what it knows with the Avensis, a safe, middle-of-the-road large car. We ask - is that enough?
  • Toyota Prius (2009-2016)

    2012Prius1

    New price: £21,995 - £28,345

    The 2009 Toyota Prius was the most radical design for the model since it first appeared. The big question is, has it improved on the original?
  • Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid (2012-)

    Toyota Prius Plugin Hybrid 2

    New price: £33,395 - £34,895

    The plug-in version of the Prius has already impressed with the best-ever fuel economy in Which? tests - but what is it like to drive?
  • Vauxhall Ampera (2012-2015)

    Vauxhall Ampera 1

    New price: £33,750 - £35,495

    Is Vauxhall's 'range-extender' hybrid the next revolution in motoring?
  • Vauxhall Insignia (2009-)

    2013 Vauxhall Insignia 1

    New price: £17,039 - £36,580

    Replacing its standard issue rep car, the Vectra, with something better wasn't the most challenging of tasks for Vauxhall. Enter the Insignia.
  • Volkswagen CC (2012-)

    VW CC 1

    New price: £24,030 - £33,030

    Our full review of the updated VW CC four-door coupe
  • Volkswagen Passat (2000-2005)

    VW Passat Saloon 2000 2

    New price: £18,990 - £35,275

    The big saloon in the VW range and a rival for such models as the Ford Mondeo and Peugeot 406. This Passat is now a cheap secondhand option.
  • Volkswagen Passat (2005-2010)

    volkswage passat 8

    New price: £17,745 - £35,275

    Continuing the Passat name, the 2005 model is as large and saloon-like as it's forerunner. It's also available in eco-friendly BlueMotion spec.

  • Rover 75 (1999-2005)

    rover 75 fl 3

    Used price: From £850

  • Saab 9-3 (2002-2011)

    saab 9-3 2009 5

    Used price: From £1,125

    The 9-3 lasted a long time under Saab but it's now dead. It's up against very stiff competition from prestige German brands.
  • Seat Exeo (2009-2013)

    Seat Exeo 2012

    Used price: From £4,625

    The Seat Exeo is essentially the old-model Audi A4 in disguise. It fills a gap in Seat's range, but does it do any more than that? The Which? testers find out.
  • Seat Toledo (2005-2008)

    SEAT Toledo 10

    Used price: From £1,650

    The large Toledo MPV is a rash departure from its previous namesake, a four door saloon. An oddball in the car world with only models like the Renault Vel Satis and Vauxhall Signum providing any sort of competition or comparison.
  • Skoda Octavia (2004-2013)

    skoda octavia vrs

    Used price: From £1,775

    The Octavia represents a cheaper option to VW hatchbacks and saloons. For those with more to carry, the Octavia is also offered as a capacious estate.
  • Skoda Octavia (2013-)

    SKODA Octavia TDI RaceBlue01

    Used price: From £8,095

    Skoda's best-selling Octavia is larger, plusher and pricier. But is it a winner?
  • Skoda Superb (2002-2008)

    Skoda Superb 1a

    Used price: From £1,175

    The Superb is a large 'high-end' saloon from the budget Skoda brand. A contradiction it may be, but the Superb offers a viable alternative to cars like the Volkswagen Passat, Ford Mondeo and Honda Accord.
  • Skoda Superb (2008-2015)

    Skoda Superb 2013 1

    Used price: From £4,325

    The Skoda Superb is called a 'saloonback' as it has both a hatchback and a saloon boot. The Which? team finds out if its as good as it seems.
  • Subaru Legacy (2003-2009)

    Subaru Legacy 1

    Used price: From £1,895

    Subaru's quirky, 4WD alternative to a 5 Series or Volvo V70
  • Subaru Legacy (2009-2013)

    subaru legacy

    Used price: From £6,225

    The Subaru Legacy and raised-ride-height Outback are relatively rare, but the four-wheel-drive chassis appeals to some drivers. Which? takes a closer look.
  • Suzuki Kizashi (2012-2013)

    Suzuki Kizashi 1

    Used price: From £6,850

    Large saloons with four-wheel drive are rare indeed. Can the Suzuki Kizashi score highly in a very narrow market niche?
  • Toyota Avensis (1997-2003)

    Toyota Avensis Hatch 97 2

    Used price: From £850

    The original Toyota Avensis was introduced as a large family hatchback in 1997 replacing Toyota's Carina E model. Does it still cut the mustard?
