Overall Winner: VOLKSWAGEN EOS
and winner in Cool Convertibles
Inside: Classy yet understated cabin with funky blue-lit dials
Drive: Fun when you want, but an easy everyday car, too
Space: Will take four, but best only on shorter journeys
Pick of the range: 2.0 TFSI Sport
What set our overall winner apart from the other deserving category winners here? The girls (and guy) on our judging panel were looking for a car that excelled in its own category, but our winner had to have a wider appeal. The Volkswagen Eos won the day.
It’s a sensible buy that feels like a treat at the same time. It’s a convertible without the potential weakness of a cloth roof. It’s practical enough to carry four, but it’s a fun car too. It’s great to drive, but not so demanding you couldn’t drive it every day.
With the Eos, Volkswagen has created a car that you can buy both because you love it, and because it makes perfect sense. At less than £24,000 it offers good value – and it’s got plenty of standard kit. The VW badge should ensure solid resale values, and we’d expect the apparent quality to run deep.
Winner: Audi TT
Inside: Looks great and it’s easy to get comfortable
Drive: Sexy purr from the engine and fabulous to drive
Space: Fine for two but rear seats are best for storing extra bags
Pick of the range: 2.0 TFSI
We love the growl of the Audi TT’s 2.0-litre engine, and the car is satisfyingly quick off the mark. Handling fills you with confidence and a sixth gear means the TT will cruise calmly on the motorway. Sexy styling touches include the silver TT-engraved petrol cap and chrome-ringed air vents and dials on the dash.
Space isn’t a priority here, but the TT is comfortable, and visibility is good. The hatchback opens onto a generous space that’s easy to load.
Family Hold-all: Runner up
The Volkswagen Golf’s styling is conservative by comparison, but still looks smart. There’s little to fault inside the car, with enough space for a family of five, a simple dash layout, and a solid feel to the controls. Traditionally the Volkswagen badge has guaranteed good resale values, making it a sensible, if not original, option.
Executive chic: Runner up
The Audi A4 felt more compact on the road, and was easy to park, but couldn’t match the BMW for refinement. Although soon to be replaced, the Audi still feels top quality, and is extremely comfortable.
