If you're thinking of buying a new car, there are a boggling array to choose from – more than 4000 variations of around 400 models, in fact. So what should you do if you don't know what you want?

Well, a good starting point is to see which models are attracting the majority of the interest here at What Car?.

Our top 10 most-viewed reviews are usually made up of a mix of the most keenly anticipated new cars, the What Car? Car of the Year Awards winners and the UK's best sellers.

Below and over the next few pages, we'll reveal the hottest cars from the first six months of 2019 – and don't forget you can buy any of them at a great price with What Car? New Car Buying.


10. Kia e-Niro

Kia e-Niro 64kWh

It's little wonder that the e-Niro makes it onto this list – after all, it's our 2019 Car of the Year. This fully electric SUV offers plenty of equipment, reasonable space and a long range. In fact, in our Real Range tests, the e-Niro showed it could drive for more than 250 miles between charges in real-world conditions.

9. Mazda CX-5

On the face of it, the fact that Mazda's largest SUV doesn't offer the option of seven seats puts it at a disadvantage. However, if you don't need to transport more than five people, it's one of the very best cars of its kind: it's comfortable, spacious and good to drive and comes with a frugal petrol engine.

What Car? rating: Rated 4 out of 5

Our pick: 2.0 SE-L Nav+

8. Toyota RAV4

2019 Toyota RAV4 front

Pretty much brand builds an SUV these days, but Toyota was early to the party, and its RAV4 remains one of the more practical cars of this sort. Like all Toyotas, it also comes with the reassurance of a five-year warranty. The RAV4 is fairly ordinary to drive, but it's cheap to run and makes good sense as a company car.

What Car? rating Rated 5 out of 5

Our pick 2.5 Hybrid Design CVT
