Superb to drive, smart inside and well equipped, plus it offers a broad range of trim levels – from the affordable Trend to the SUV-inspired Active – to cater for many tastes and budgets. It’s one of the very best small cars you can buy, but it can prove quite pricey in higher trims and the Volkswagen Polo just has the edge for ride comfort, safety and rear-seat space.

The entry-level trim is well worth your attention because it comes with plenty of standard equipment, including 16in alloy wheels, a heated front windscreen, air conditioning, chrome around the front grille, an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio, Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring, LED headlights and cruise control. It's not available with optional automatic emergency braking though, so we recommend upgrading to Titanium trim.

Unlike the other engines in the Fiesta range, this 74bhp entry-level engine doesn’t come with a turbocharger. As a result, it feels quite gutless when you put your foot down on a fast road or to overtake. If you can, we’d suggest spending a little more to upgrade to one of the Ecoboost engines.
