‘It showed that a small car could be just as luxurious as a big one’ When BMW reinvented the Mini in 2001, it disproved the notion that small cars had to be cheap and inspired a host of brands to build rival models. But while there probably wouldn’t have been an Audi A1 without the Mini, the A1 was a game-changer in its own right, showing for the first time that a small car could be just as luxurious as a big one. The Mini has since moved in that direction itself, with the latest version feeling properly plush inside. So, Audi has responded with an all-new A1, and we’re pitting the two against one another from p68. Indeed, things rarely stay static in the car world for long. But while this means…

small and family cars

SUMMER Volkswagen Golf Hatchback evolves mechanically and has a tech revolution THE VOLKSWAGEN GOLF is one of the bestselling cars in the UK; almost 40,000 examples found homes in the first six months of 2018. It neatly straddles the mainstream and prestige markets, competing with everything from the Ford Focus to the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, and still holds a five-star What Car? rating six years after it was launched. However, it’s now time for a new, eighth-generation Golf. Don’t expect a revolution when it comes to the looks; the new Golf will feature sharper creases to bring it into line with the new Polo, but it will still be instantly recognisable, and the three-door, five-door and estate bodystyles are all expected to continue. The new Golf will be based on the same underpinnings, too, but its front…

SUMMER Nissan Juke Small SUV gets a radical redesign, new engines and fresh underpinnings in an effort to improve interior space WHAT DO THE Jeep Renegade, Nissan Juke and Ssangyong Tivoli all have in common? Each is a small SUV that we rate at two stars. But whereas two of those cars are relative rarities on the road, the Juke has consistently been an incredibly popular choice with British buyers since the day it came out. Our main criticisms are its poor practicality, sub-par interior quality and the fact that it’s not very good to drive. So, Nissan has been working hard to allay these shortcomings with its second-generation Juke, due next summer, in order to better challenge rivals such as the Renault Captur and Seat Arona. Underneath, the Juke will use a stretched version…

sports cars and hot hatches

‘The hybrids will balance engine and batteries for an almost perfect 50/50 weight distribution’ MARCH Porsche 911 Sports car gets increased power across the board, a new interior and hybrid variants for its eighth era ASIDE FROM A blip in the late 1990s, styling updates to the 911 sports car have generally been about as radical as putting milk in your tea, and Porsche wasn’t about to change that approach with this eighth-generation model. However, the subtly revised looks do hide some significant technical changes. For the first time, every engine in the expansive line-up will be turbocharged, marking the end of the characterful but dirty naturally aspirated units found in more hardcore versions of the outgoing car. What’s more, Porsche will offer two four-wheel-drive plug-in hybrid variants, including a flagship model with more than 600bhp…
