We want to replace my wife's 2003 Fiesta Zetec with another supermini. The car needs to be sporty, have leather seats and a sunroof but that list is causing us a problem, particularly the sunroof. Only the Mini seems to fit the bill, and my wife doesn't like it.

There arent many cars that fit the bill, but weve found three.

Fiat offers leather upholstery (650) and a sunroof (550) with its new 500. Currently the 1.4 Sport is the sportiest model, but with just 99bhp it wont set the road alight. With both options added youll only be splashing out 11,850.

The new 153bhp Grande Punto Abarth is the most powerful car we could find. Leather costs 850 extra and a sunroof 550, so youll be spending a minimum of 14,900.

The Volkswagen Polo GTI can be specced with both leather (1280) and a sunroof (515), too. Its certainly quick with 148bhp, but tick both boxes in the options list and youll be forking out a hefty 16,995 for the three-door model.

You can find reviews of all three cars elsewhere on
