The Viva makes most sense the cheaper you keep it, so the range-topping Viva Rocks is difficult to recommend, especially because it gets less equipment than a standard Viva in a cheaper trim.
If you're after a quirky small car with a hint of SUV about it, we’d recommend opting for the Ignis, which is much more entertaining to drive, has a far better engine and is more practical to boot.
