Automotive brilliance, distilled

1. 2013 Range Rover

Looks great, and combines luxury and ruggedness like Bear Grylls in a silk kimono.

2. Vauxhall Ampera

Its ingenious petrol-fuelled generator and superb performance are an evolutionary leap for electric cars.

3. BMW 3 series

A fantastic all-rounder, the only thing boring about it is that it keeps turning up on ‘best car’ lists.

4. Toyota GT86

All bells and whistles have been removed to create a stripped-back driving machine, and all for £25,000.

5. Mini Roadster

Less is more; in this case the ‘less’ is the roof and the ‘more’ is the amount of time you’ll spend in the car.
