Vauxhall Corsa

4. Vauxhall Corsa

There’s plenty to like about the current Corsa, including its spacious interior, keen pricing and plentiful standard kit. An all-new model is coming next year.

Volkswagen Golf

Ask a group of people to name a family hatchback and chances are most of them will mention the Volkswagen Golf. It’s consistently among the most popular new cars sold in the UK, and with good reason: with such a wide range of engines and versions on offer, from frugal petrols through to diesels and even an electric version, there's a model to suit everyone. It’s also brilliant to drive and competitively priced.
