What Car?'s group tests of 2014

Throughout the year, we put together some mouth-watering group tests in order for the best in each class to battle it out against their nearest and newest rivals

Take a look back at our biggest group tests of 2014 below and click the links to read the full test verdict.

BMW i8 vs Porsche 911

It was the sports car of the future against the benchmark sports car of today, when the BMW i8 and Porsche 911 went head-to-head. Outright performance for both cars was almost identical, but the two couldn't have been more different in how they delivered and communicated the experience.

Land Rover Discovery Sport vs BMW X3 vs Lexus NX vs Volvo XC60

The BMW X3 had to defend its sub-£50,000 SUV crown against much anticipated all-new models in the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Lexus NX hybrid. The outgoing Volvo XC60 upped its game with a new D4 diesel engine that promised improved fuel consumption and emissions making this a very competitive test.

Hyundai i10 vs Peugeot 108 vs Toyota Aygo

The city car segment is a fiercely contested category, which never allows car manufacturers to rest on their laurels. Hyundai's i10 has reigned supreme in this class, thanks to its spacious cabin and attractive pricing. However, it had to contend with brand new models from Peugeot and Toyota.

Honda Civic Tourer vs Seat Leon ST vs Volkswagen Golf Estate

A practical, yet affordable estate car that radiates decent quality usually ranks high in the wishlist for car buyers with families or load-lugging needs. Here, we brought together three estates that represented the best value for money, while being clinical with their practical execution.

Bentley Flying Spur vs Range Rover

Two of the most luxurious cars under £150,000 locked horns in this twin test, to discover which car transports their driver and passengers in the most style. The test asked posed another question - do you really need to spend £42,000 more for the Bentley over the Range Rover?
