Renault's cheapest car offers a decent amount of style and interior space for less than 5000. It's also pretty quiet on the move, and the suspension offers a good compromise between comfort and fun.

There are only two airbags as standard, but otherwise the kit list ticks most essential boxes except the one for air-conditioning, which isn't available.

The Twingo will cost peanuts to run owing to its frugal engine and low insurance costs, and should also be worth more than other sub-5000 scrappage cars in three years' time.

Key equipment
Auxiliary input, CD player (four speakers), electric front windows, tilt-adjustable steering wheel, central locking, driver and passenger airbags.
