Our recommended version: 1.25 3 5dr | List price: £13,150 | Target Price: £12,534
Our reigning city car champion offers tidy handling, a good-size boot by the standards of the class and excellent infotainment on upper trim levels. It's good to drive and reasonably practical, too.
Our recommended version: 1.0 TSI 95 FR | List price: £17,240 | Target Price: £15,229
The Ibiza is a fantastic choice in the small car market. It's deceptively spacious inside, comes with a range of peppy engines and is great to drive. In short, it's a fantastic choice.
Our recommended version: 1.0 TSI 95 SE | List price: £16,450 | Target Price: £15,240
The Polo is the best small car you can buy right now, offering a superb interior that's surprisingly spacious, impressive refinement and a strong petrol engine range, of which this 1.0-litre version is our favourite.
