Industry VFACTS data summing up 2019 showed that while the overall market fell 7.8 per cent (to depths not plumbed since 2011), the Small Car segment fell by 18 per cent compared to the previous year.

Aimed at the Mazda CX-5 and Toyota RAV4 in the hotly-contested mid-sized SUV space, the C5 Aircross's four-star safety rating is down to a 'marginal' result in 'vulnerable road user' (cyclist and pedestrian) protection.

2020 Ford Focus ST wagon unveiled

Ford of Europe has revealed a more practical alternative to the Focus ST hatch, but it's reserved for overseas markets unfortunately. As with the hatch, the Focus ST wagon is available with either a 140kW/400Nm 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine, or a 206kW/420Nm 2.3-litre turbocharged petrol mill. Both engines come standard with a six-speed manual, while the petrol is available with a seven-speed automatic as well.
