Autocar's testers have picked their top 10 cars for 2010.
The selection includes everything from a £10,000 Toyota iQ at one end of the scale to a £200,000 Noble M600 at the other. We had all the cars in our studio for an exclusive photo shoot, which revealed the cars in stunning detail. You can see the gallery by clicking on the link below.
Find out what our testers chose - and why - below. We've also included our top used car of the year.
Porsche 911 GT3 - Matt Prior
"A GT3 is probably the only place beyond a Caterham or a Lots where you are allowed to remain so utterly in tune with what is happening mechanically, through the contact patches of your hands. Few are the cars whose responses are so telegraphed and so linear as the GT3's. It is purposeful. It is pure. It is quite, quite brilliant.
Skoda Superb estate - Hilton Holloway
"Skoda is parking itself on Volvo's old territory by offering a hugely spacious, classy, tightly made, upmarket mainstream machine at a sensible price. It is, as Volvo might say, a car for life."
Renaultsport Clio 200 Cup - Vicky Parrott
"The Cup offers the kind of feedback and forgiving responses that can teach a beginner how to get the most from a grippy front-wheel-drive car without an embarrassing phone call to insurance underwriters at the end of it. It is affordable to buy and run, endlessly entertaining in any situation, and you can get the kids in the back and the weekly shop in the boot. That is all any enthusiast can ask of a £16k car. "
