We take a look at some of the best small cars money can buy:
5. Volkswagen Polo
Volkswagen has recently launched their new Polo range, and there’s something in it for everyone, whether you’re a self-confessed petrol head or whether you just want to get from A to B.
The Polo can be a great city car but is also able to get up to speed well on the motorways, making it a great car for commuting to and from work. There are a number of different models available, but we recommend going for the efficient 1.2-litre petrol engine. You’ll still get all the high-class interior as well as an 8-inch touchscreen.
4. Skoda Fabia
Skoda has recently burst back onto the scene, with the Fabia leading the drive, becoming one of their best selling models, and it’s easy to see why.
The multiple award-winning car is right up there in terms of value for money. The Fabia comes with a generously sized boot as well as a wide choice of engine choices, but we would recommend going for the 1.2 TSI 90 SE model, which scores over 60mpg in official testing.
3. Kia Rio
Maybe a bit of a surprise inclusion but the Kia Rio merits strong consideration if you’re looking for a new small car.
The Rio had to be included on this list down to its practicality and pricing. The newer models also boast a turbocharged engine and automatic emergency braking as standard.
2. Seat Ibiza
The Seat Ibiza comes in a very, very close second. A fantastic all-rounder, with very few weaknesses, even the slower 94bhp 1.0-litre petrol engine has plenty of get up and go. On top of that, it is a very spacious car and there really is very little to complain about when it comes to the Ibiza.
1. Ford Fiesta
Britains best selling car had to be our number 1. The Ford Fiesta has been sitting at the top of the tree for a few years now when it comes to small cars.
It is a fine example of how a small car can really do everything that people, a strong and economical Ecoboost petrol engine provides a bit of speed without being expensive to run. The Fiesta really is a small fun car to drive that also gives you that big car sophistication, and that is why it comes in at number 1 on our list.
