New car reviews online: the new Honda Jazz has arrived Plus the Jaguar XE and Hyundai Tucson reviewed
04 March 2016
Just when other superminis thought it was safe to leave the garage the new Honda Jazz rears its stylish new head. We gave it a full review to see if it can put in a performance worthy of a Best Buy.
After last week's mob of SUVs, we've now also reviewed the Hyundai Tucson. We gave it the Which? test treatment to see whether the South Korean manufacturer's latest compact SUV is more than a stylish grill and a big boot.
The absence of SUVs has been filled by the Mercedes C-class and Jaguar XE, going head to head in the crowded saloon category.
A Which? test is much more than a quick drive down a country lane and a score out of 100. We drive all the cars we test for 1,200 miles on real roads before scrutinising every aspect, from emissions to interior noise, in our controlled lab.
Our thorough test schedules and real road driving provide accurate mpg data so you can see exactly how much your car will cost to run - handy considering the recent rise in fuel prices.

Latest Which? car reviews
We put all our cars through the same stringent tests to make sure no detail goes unnoticed and you get a review that tells you everything you need to know.
Honda Jazz (2015 -) supermini - new model
The unstoppable Honda Jazz is back with a new model that ups the ante in terms of design with high-rise windows, a sharper grill and creases that break up the new longer body.
A range of striking new colours complete the Jazz's transformation, but it's not just the exterior that's seen attention - the two engine options from the previous Jazz have been removed in favour of a 1.3 litre petrol engine.
Can this roomy hatchback with it's new engine improve on the previous model's average mpg and take home a coveted Best Buy award? Click on our Honda Jazz review to find out.
Jaguar XE (2015 -) large car - new model
Jaguar's latest executive saloon arrives into a hotly contested arena to do battle with the BMW 5 Series and the Audi A4. The XE retains Jaguar's new uniform styling that proved so popular on the XF but will the decreased space and fewer engine options hold it back in the race to be the best car in its competitive class? Our Jaguar XE review has the answers.
Hyundai Tucson (2015 -) SUV - new model
Hyundai's latest compact SUV is a brand new model and it's getting a lot of praise for its stylish front end and smooth drive. With a truck load of engine options, and two and four wheel drive variants, can the Tucson be the successor the ix35 deserves? Find out in our Hyundai Tucson review.
VW Sharan (2010 -) MPV - facelift
At the opposite end of the size scale the seven-seat VW Sharan has received a facelift after five years on the market. With its useful double sliding doors and huge inside space the updated Sharan has all the makings of a great MPV.
Has it done enough to compete with the Ford Galaxy? Read our VW Sharan review to find out.
Mercedes-Benz C-class (2014 -) large car - new model
Mercedes hopes its latest C-class can close the gap on the BMW 3 Series. The C-class comes with a new 2.1 litre diesel engine and the sort of ride comfort upgrades usually reserved for the S-class range.
Could the C-class get Mercedes bumper to bumper with its arch-rival? Find out in our Mercedes-Benz C-class review.
