The Volkswagen Golf Wagon range starts with the 90TSI, steps up to the 103TSI and tops out with a diesel variant. For our money, we’d go for the 90TSI because it’s almost impossible to feel the extra 13kW from the larger engine.

The BMW Z4 is a two-seater sports car so it can’t be judged by the standards of ‘sensible’ cars, but you’ll need to decide just how many compromises you are willing to live with.
The Audi S3 Sportback will find its way onto shopping lists of European buyers, but the real surprise is that it is also competitive with the Subaru WRX STi and Mitsubishi Evo X.
