For The Savvy is one of the cheapest cars in the UK to buy and own, and comes with decent equipment: air-conditioning, electric front windows and alloy wheels.

Ultimately, there is no choice: if you want a Savvy, this is the only model. However, before you buy, be aware that there are plenty of better alternatives.
