The best petrol cars
Whether you're looking for a sporty coupé, a practical hatchback or a seven-seat SUV, petrol power is now more appealing than ever before. We count down our favourite cars that drink from the gre...
4. Kia Picanto 1.25
Our reigning city car champion offers tidy handling, a good-size boot by the standards of the class and excellent infotainment on pricier trim levels. It's good to drive and reasonably practical, too, and the 1.25-litre petrol engine we recommend is pleasantly peppy.
3. Skoda Scala 1.0 TSI 115
Think of the Scala as a cut-price version of the Volkswagen Golf and you won't go far wrong. Indeed, it has many of the same attributes we admire about Volkswagen's family hatchback, including a comfy ride and a spacious interior. This 1.0-litre petrol engine is our recommended choice, because with 113bhp available it has enough power to execute swift overtakes when needed.
2. Volkswagen Polo 1.0 TSI 95
The Polo is our favourite small car, having ousted the still brilliant Seat Ibiza to claim the top spot at this year's What Car? Awards. Again, it's a turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol that we recommend, and it's well suited to the Polo's mostly urban nature. As well as a supple ride, the Polo offers a generous amount of space inside.
