A keenly priced small car, but the bumpy ride, wheezy engine and disappointing safety rating all count against it. It's hard to recommend.

This range-topping trim brings sports seats up front, cruise control, a reversing camera and a few other upgrades, including built-in sat-nav.

The only engine option isn’t turbocharged, so it feels a bit gutless and asthmatic at low revs. On quicker roads, it’s easier to make use of the engine’s maximum grunt, which arrives at a 4500rpm – but once you’re that high up the rev range, be prepared for quite a lot of vibration and harshness.
