In this price bracket, that's a lot, which explains why the Picanto is one of the most popular cars bought under the scrappage scheme so far.
Its 1.0-litre petrol engine isn't really up to doing regular motorway jaunts, but it will help to keep your running costs down, thanks to its low fuel consumption. Cute looks and standard five-door practicality make the Picanto well worth a look if money is really tight.
CD player (four speakers), driver and passenger airbags, electric front windows, split-folding rear seats, tilt-adjustable steering wheel.
