Mazda CX-5

The Mazda CX-5 has received many good reviews from the UK media, with an overall Expert Rating that places it at the top end of the mid-sized SUV sector.

Honda HR-V

The Honda HR-V has received fairly average from the UK media, with our overall Expert Rating currently ranking it in the middle of the small SUV field.

Volvo XC60

The Volvo XC60 has received good to very good reviews from the UK media and has won many awards since it was launched, including the 2018 World Car of the Year.

Citroën C3 Aircross

The Citroën C3 Aircross has received modest reviews from the UK media, with praise for its versatility and individuality but criticism for a lack of refinement.
 

Ford has reduced its Mondeo range from seven to five models, trying to maintain sales in the face of the never-ending growth of SUVs at the expense of large saloons.

With 85% of Mondeo sales going to business users as company or lease vehicles, Ford has paid particular attention to reducing Benefit in Kind (BIK) tax liabilities, with reduced prices across the range.

On-road prices have been reduced by £2,500 on the entry-level Zetec Edition model up to £3,000 on the top-spec Vignale. Ford claims that this will save company car drivers of up to £240 per year, a £300 saving on an employer’s fleet National Insurance costs.

The price and specification revisions have also meant that finance and leasing prices remain competitive, with average lease prices remaining at current levels despite added equipment in each model.

   

The Mondeo range now starts with the Zetec Edition model AT £19,445 on-road, and then branches in either a more sporting direction (ST-Line and ST-Line Edition) or a more luxurious direction (Titanium Edition and Vignale). The ST-Line Edition and Titanium Edition models are new additions, while the Vignale flagship now incorporates the previously-optional Nero appearance pack. This includes dark-tinted 19-inch alloy wheels and dark chrome trim.

There are no mechanical updates, so the 2018 Mondeos will be the same as the current-spec cars to drive. First deliveries of the upgraded models should start in November.
