For The Splash looks cute inside and out, and the cabin is impressively spacious for a small car. It's good to drive, too.
Against The tiny boot limits its overall practicality, it's pricey and a few details are annoying, like the hard-to-read rev counter.

The Suzuki Splash is good to drive and the spacious cabin defies its small size, but there are cheaper and more generously kitted alternatives.

There are 4 Suzuki Splash versions available
Target Price team says:
The Suzuki Splash comes with a choice of 1.0-litre and 1.2-litre petrol engines. Both are capable of worthy performance, but you'll only tap into it once the revs rise above 4000rpm. Both are smooth, though, so giving them plenty of revs is no hardship.
All versions have decent standard kit, including electric front windows, remote central locking, a CD stereo and a leather-covered steering wheel with audio controls. Higher-trim cars add alloy wheels, air-conditioning, front foglamps and rear privacy glass, but when the standard model is so well equipped, we'd save ourselves the cash.
