Which used Hyundai Atoz hatchback should I buy?

There's only one engine available, a 1.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that develops a meagre 55bhp, but which is okay for town use.

Like many city cars of a similar output, the Atoz struggles once you get outside the city. You'll need to use every last drop of the engine's reserves of strength just to keep up with traffic, and all this does it make a lot of noise.

There are two trim levels to consider. The standard Atoz has a very basic level of equipment - power steering, a radio cassette and a rear wash-wiper are about all you'll get - so find yourself an Atoz Plus and you'll travel in relative luxury. For barely any more cash, you'll get alloy wheels, air-con, central locking, a driver's airbag and electric front windows.

The range was slightly revised in September 1999, so if you buy a basic Atoz built after this date, you'll get a driver's airbag as standard.
