Most popular cars

If you're thinking of buying a new car, then there are more than 4000 variations of around 400 cars to choose from, 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 on Whatcar.com.

The top 10 is usually made up of a mix of the most keenly anticipated new cars, the What Car? Award winners and the UK's best sellers.

These are the hottest cars from the past seven days:

10th – Hyundai Tucson

The Nissan Qashqai might be the default choice for small SUV buyers, but if space and value for money are your priorities, the Hyundai Tucson is also worth considering. You even get the reassurance of a five-year unlimited-mileage warranty. Just bear in mind that the Tucson's low-speed ride is firm and the steering is vague, so there are better cars to drive.

9th – Mazda CX-5

The new Mazda CX-5 is based on its predecessor, so it's no more practical. But it looks a lot more stylish and has a much classier interior. It's also one of the most comfortable large SUVs around, soaking up poorly surfaced roads better than rivals such as the Peugeot 5008 and Skoda Kodiaq. And yet the CX-5 is still fun to drive because the well-weighted steering gives you the confidence to place the car exactly where you want it.

8th – Nissan X-Trail

Many people will consider the seven-seater X-Trail to be a far more appealing option than a traditional people carrier. But while it's stylish and practical, plenty of rivals are nicer to drive, more comfortable to sit in and have better infotainment systems.
