Honda Jazz v Volkswagen Polo : Comparison review

Not so long ago, buying a little car meant making big compromises. While some contenders had their strong suits, none could claim the all-round ability of those in the next class up despite costing just a few thousand dollars less.

As the 12th most popular small SUV in Australia (in a class of 19 entrants), the S-Cross is a rare sight at the best of times...
