What alternatives should I consider to a used Ford Fiesta hatchback?

The Seat Ibiza won our 2018 Best Small Car award because it has a strong range of engines, is great to drive and the ride deals with smaller imperfections even better than the Fiesta. There’s also a lot more space in the back of an Ibiza than there is in the Fiesta, making it a more practical choice.

Based on the same platform, the Volkswagen Polo is another car that’s more practical than the Fiesta. It doesn’t handle as sharply as the Fiesta though, but it is supposed to be a more upmarket and refined choice.

If you want great value, then the Vauxhall Corsa is something of a bargain. It’s well equipped, too, although the infotainment system looks a little bit dated; you can at least turn the car into a mobile 4G wi-fi hotspot by subscribing to Vauxhall’s OnStar service.
