Jun21
The 159 is way ahead of previous Alfas in terms of reliability and build quality, although it’s still behind key rivals. The brand trails its German rivals on quality. But lower prices go some way towards making up for that. Despite Alfa’s reputation for sportiness, the 159 isn’t that fast.

The Subaru Outback has been a firm fixture in the manufacturer's line-up since 1995 and is now in its fourth generation. It’s essentially a Legacy estate with a raised ride height.

Volkswagen has just revealed an all-new Polo. It’s a far cry from the original model that arrived in 1974 as the Audi 50; within a year it had been rebadged as a Volkswagen. Those first cars were well made but spartan and mediocre in most ways. Until the Mk5 appeared in 2009,
