Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
The A110 is available in three trims: Pure, Légende and S. Entry-level Pure gets 17in alloy wheels, leather-trimmed seats and climate control, while 18in wheels, a sports exhaust and upgraded brakes are available from the options list. It's not cheap, but priced pretty closely to an entry-level Porsche Cayman.
Légende trim brings the added convenience of the parking aids and extra seat adjustment we mentioned earlier. It also adds 18in alloy wheels and aluminium pedals inside, but we'd stick with Pure trim to keep the costs down.
As for the S, in addition to its extra power and stiffer suspension, you get a faux-suede roof lining, orange stitching on the seats, black 18in alloy wheels and uprated Brembo brakes.
All A110's get a three-year, 60,000-mile warranty, which the Cayman betters by having no mileage limit. However, the A110 should be more affordable to run, because it's low weight brings down CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. Even the S managed 34.3mpg in our test, which is very respectable for a sports car.
