Evolved and then some

Mitsubishi Evolution VIII FQ330

A civilised supercar, but at £32k it’s pricey next to independently modded Imprezas

Fat looks fat soundtrack

Renault Clio RenaultSport V6

Fabulous but flawed, the Clio V6 transcends most objective criteria. We’re just glad such a car exists.

Audi TT 3.2 V6 Roadster

V6 and DSG ’box are just as successful in the Roadster as they are in the Coupé

Toyota Prius 1.5 T3

Toyota Prius 1.5 T3

VW Touareg 2.5 TDI

VW Touareg 2.5 TDI

Entry-level Touareg handles well enough, and is solidly built, but 2.5 diesel doesn’t have the refinement you’d expect
