The Kia Rio is a promising small car with price on its side, while its turbocharged engines are perfectly competent both around town and at faster motorway speeds. It’s a shame the entry-level trim does without AEB, but grade ‘2’ trim comes with plenty of kit, gives you access to our favourite 1.0-litre turbocharged engine and keeps the Rio’s price competitive. We’d avoid stepping up to the mild-hybrid version of the same engine as it’s only available as part of grade ‘3’ trim and this pushes the Rio’s price too close to more desirable and even more efficient rivals such as the Honda Jazz and Toyota Yaris hybrid.get the best price

Opt for entry-level ‘1’ grade and you get air-conditioning, front electric windows, heated electric door mirrors, Bluetooth phone connectivity, automatic lights and a multi-function steering wheel.

The MG 3 is keenly priced, but still hard to recommend
Spacious, quiet, comfortable and good value on PCP financ...
The Suzuki Swift has tidy handling and a strong turbo engine...
Lots of safety kit, but underwhelming in other areas
