It's been a good week for the masses on Autocar.co.uk, with some great new hatchbacks, the arrival of a stunning new Land Rover and open doors at one of the biggest car 'events' in the UK.
Fiat and Toyota led the hatchback charge - the Japanese brand was first with its Auris, the 'exciting' replacement to the Corolla. Judging by its looks, we're not entirely convinced that the Auris will be a cracking drive, but if Fiat's Bravo lives up to its styling, then the Italian brand could have a Punto-esque hit on its hands.
We're more hopeful still about the Volkswagen Golf GTI Edition 30, the 227bhp version of the iconic hot hatch designed to celebrate its 30th birthday. With more power mated to that terrific chassis, the limited edition machine could prove a hard-to-find classic.
On the road, we brought you first impressions on one of this year's most important cars - the Land Rover Freelander. And according to our road tester Matt Prior, the British brand should have another hit on its hands. In fact, it was a big week for SUVs - we also tested the new BMW X5 and brought you the first details on the Peugeot 4007 and Citroen C-Crosser.
