The Kia Picanto is a very fine small car, with a smart interior, tidy handling and – if you pick our favourite 3 trim – a very easy to use and well-equipped infotainment system. The Hyundai i10 is a bit more polished in terms of ride and refinement, though, and a Dacia Sandero offers more space but costs even less.

More sporty styling and lots of kit including faux leather seats, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, keyless entry and start, wireless phone charging, 16in alloys and privacy glass, on top of what you get with '3' trim. It's too pricey, though.

The best engine is the turbocharged 1.0 T-GDi with 99bhp. The problem is it's only available with the top trims, so it's expensive, and as a manual only. On the plus side, it's a lot more flexible at low revs and feels noticeably swifter when you work it (0-60mph takes 9.9sec).
