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

If you're after a classy used small car, then the Volkswagen Up does it best. With solid build quality, an upmarket-feeling interior and lots of space inside, the Up is a top choice. This is reflected in the price, however, as you’ll need to spend more than you would for the Ford.

The Hyundai I10 comes with lots of equipment as standard and is second only to the Volkswagen in terms of feeling like a more mature and well-rounded vehicle. It’s just not as nice to drive as the best in the class and top-of-the-range Premium SE is quite expensive.

If the Up is too much, then there are always its stablemates the Skoda Citigo and Seat Mii to go for. These offer the most of what the Up provides, just in a cheaper package. They aren’t as smart to look as the Volkswagen and their interiors are a bit less pleasing to the eye.
