The BMW 1 Series is one of the best small family cars. It’s desirable, good to drive and surprisingly cheap to run

Gets the essentials, including air-con, 16in alloy wheels, a 6.5in colour screen, sat-nav, Bluetooth and audio streaming, digital radio, a multi-function steering wheel, auto lights and wipers and electric windows all-round. You might want to add cruise control, rear parking sensors and Apple CarPlay, though, as well as the Driver Assistant Pack with useful safety aids such as automatic emergency braking.

This turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol engine gives reasonable performance when revved hard and, driven carefully, it’s frugal. It sounds very hushed, but being a three-cylinder engine means you do get a fair amount of vibration through to the interior.
