Which used Daihatsu Charade hatchback should I buy?

Your choice of engine is simple - there's only one. The 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine gives 58bhp, and it's surprisingly nippy around busy city streets.

The fact that it's a three-cylinder also means that the Charade has a characterful, thrummy exhaust note - at low speeds. On the motorway, however, this thrum becomes a loud, annoying drone, because the engine has to work very hard to keep up a steady high speed.
