1. BMW 1 Series Review
The all-new, front-wheel-drive BMW 1 Series was one of the most controversial cars to go on sale in 2019. In our most popular car review video of the year (and indeed of all time) Rebecca Jackson gets behind the wheel to see if the 1 Series can still deliver as a BMW should.
2. Peugeot Rifter Review
Not as glamorous as a BMW perhaps, but our Peugeot Rifter review proves that practical can still be popular. In this video, Chris Knapman finds out just how useful a Rifter can be for family life, and marvels at the ride comfort it offers.
3. Ford Focus Review
A new Ford Focus is always a big deal, and this latest version is no different. Chris Knapman certainly came away impressed, not only because it’s still a great car to drive, but also because the Focus is now so much roomier than before.
4. Ford Ranger Raptor Review
A completely different kind of Ford finishes as our fourth most popular car review video of 2019: it’s the Ranger Raptor. It might only have a four-cylinder diesel engine, but as Rebecca Jackson discovers, the Raptor is still an impressive pickup for keen drivers.
5. Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio vs Audi RS5 Sportback
Dan Prosser delivers the verdict on whether Audi’s latest RS5 Sportback can knock Alfa Romeo from the top spot in the class for (extremely) fast family cars. This was our most popular car review video twin test of the year – but do you agree with Dan’s verdict?
6. Mazda3 SkyActiv-X Review
The latest Mazda3 is significant not only for being an all-new car, but also for being available with an all-new type of engine. Rebecca Jackson puts it to the test to see if the SkyActiv-X engine, which is meant to combine the best bits of a petrol and diesel power, delivers on its promise.
7. Peugeot 508 SW Review
The 508 SW has to be one of the most handsome Peugeots of modern times, but how does it fare other than in its styling? That’s what Chris Knapman set out to discover in his review of this potential family favourite.
8. Ford Focus Active Review
Another Ford Focus makes the top 10 with Rebecca Jackson’s review of the new Active model. It’s designed to add a more rugged edge to the Focus line up, but does the Active still deliver as a driver’s car?
9. BMW F10 5 Series Used Car Review
As well as our reviews of new cars, we also produce guides to buying some of the most popular used models in the UK. In this video Chris Knapman takes a closer look at the F10-generation of BMW 5 Series to see how it is standing the test of time. Sorry about his shorts.
10. Skoda Octavia Used Car Review
Our used car review of the Skoda Octavia proved to be another popular choice in 2019. If you’re looking for a second-hand family car the Skoda is certainly worth considering thanks to its combination of space, performance and low running costs. Chris Knapman guides you through what to look out for.
That rounds out our top 10: remember to head to the CarGurus UK YouTube channel to find plenty more video content in 2020 and beyond.
