With its nippy acceleration and agile handling, the Puma will put a bigger smile on your face than any other small SUV. It’s a car you can buy with your sensible hat on, too, thanks to its low CO2 emissions, excellent real-world fuel economy, cleverly designed boot and attractive monthly PCP costs.

As the top-spec non-ST Puma model, the Vivid Ruby Edition is very well-equipped. As the name suggests, it only comes in ‘Vivid Ruby’ metallic paint and there’s a contrasting black roof, black door mirrors and rear spoiler. There are 18-inch alloy wheels, a powered tailgate, front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view parking camera all as standard.

With 124bhp, the Ecoboost mHEV 125 can accelerate from 0-60mph in 9.5sec – far quicker than the Nissan Juke or the Volkswagen T-Roc 1.0 TSI. It comes with a super-slick, six-speed manual gearbox as standard, or you have a smooth seven-speed automatic gearbox for a premium. Regardless of the gearbox, this engine pulls reasonably well from low revs, although the more powerful 1.0 Ecoboost mHEV 155 version is much faster.
