Often the verdict for a car costing this little would be ‘cheap but not great’. Not here, though. For practicality, it’s actually one of the best in the class. If you go for Expression trim with the TCe 90 or TCe 100 Bi-Fuel engine, you'll have a great all-round package for very little outlay. Only a disappointing Euro NCAP safety score lets the side down.

We’d recommend going for Expression trim if you can. It’s still astonishing value but comes with lots of extra toys over entry-level Essential, including rear parking sensors, automatic lights and windscreen wipers, keyless entry and a touchscreen infotainment system.

This Bi-Fuel version benefits from a bit more power than the TCe 90 and can run on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as well as regular unleaded. When running on LPG, it feels stronger from low engine speeds than the TCe 90 and, crucially, is also smoother and quieter. For that reason, it’s our pick of the range.
