What alternatives should I consider to a used Fiat Punto hatchback?

The Seat Ibiza is currently our favourite car in the small car class, although it’s anything but small inside, being impressively spacious inside and also immensely practical. It drives well, too, and is well equipped. It even scores well for safety, unlike the Punto.

The Ford Fiesta is even more fun to drive than the Ibiza, in many ways, and that’s saying something. It’s spacious, practical and has an excellent driving position and an intuitive dashboard.
