Renault Twingo R'sport Cup 133
Price 12,047
Target Price 11,344

Renault cleaned up at our Hot Hatch of the Year Awards, and it's not hard to see why. This Twingo is great fun and in insurance group 19.

Ford Fiesta 1.6 Ti-VCT Zetec S 3dr, '09/59
Price 11,500

It's not as nippy as the Twingo, but it's more composed through the corners. The Fiesta looks great, too, and is in insurance group 13.

Mini Cooper 1.6 (Chili Pack), '07/07
Price 11,800

Few cars are as good to drive and, if David doesn't need much of a boot, a three-year-old Mini is worth a look. Insurance is in group 16.
