Used DS 3 15-present

What alternatives should I consider to a used DS DS 3 hatchback?

The Mini is fun to drive, has usable rear space and a decent boot. You can choose between three and five-door versions, too. There are hundreds of customisation options to choose from through the various packs, so used prices vary a lot.

The Fiat 500 is extremely popular, despite being smaller than the Mini and the DS 3. It’s good to drive, although not as sharp as the Mini and the 3, but its chic retro looks and agility in traffic have made this car an icon among urban movers and shakers. Used prices are competitive, too.
