Seat Arona - The Most-read review

Top 20 most-read reviews on

What do the Hyundai Ioniq, Volkswagen Polo and Mercedes-Benz A-Class have in common? Yes, all are fairly new hatchbacks that come highly recommended by What Car?, but they’re also the only models in the top 20 most-read reviews that aren’t an SUV.

What started as a trend has now become an almost unanimous shift in public taste. The Volkswagen Group brands have capitalised on this best, it appears, with Seat scoring a one-two finish, Skoda and Volkswagen taking two places apiece and Audi popping up in 10th.

Other consistently popular SUVs include the Volvo XC40, due to its status as a past Car of the Year, the Toyota C-HR and the formative Nissan Qashqai.
