I looked at a lot of cars a year ago, but the market has changed since then, new Auris, new A3, new A-Class, new Kia/Hyundai, new Mazda, so the options have changed significantly.
If I was looking today I'd probably be looking hard at the A class, it's expensive though.
The major problem I had at the time was dealers simply didn't have auto demonstrators for test drives, so it was a big improvement when Honda released theirs. (VW & Audi with DSG were the only ones I found)
I liked the Golf, but 1.4 petrol with turbo charge, supercharger and DSG to match Civic the 1.8 made me nervous.
