Which used Chevrolet Lacetti hatchback should I buy?

With no diesel available, it's a choice between three petrol engines – a 1.4, 1.6 and 1.8 – each bringing a particular trim level.

The 1.6-litre SX five-door hatchback has everything you need, including air-con, alloy wheels and electric windows all round. It's our favourite model in the range and, like all Lacettis, it comes with power steering, central locking and a CD player.

There's also a 1.8 in Sport trim, with traction control and a sporting bodykit, but it doesn't feel that much quicker than the 1.6 in real life. And, while the 1.4 (which comes in basic SE trim) is an acceptable engine, it lacks the urge of the 1.6. Don't bother with the automatic gearbox.

You'll find plenty of Lacettis in the Chevrolet dealer network and the small ads.
