If you're in the market for a new car, then naturally you want to get the best price possible. And the good news is that by buying through What Car?, you're guaranteed a great deal.

Many people are still understandably nervous about the prospect of going into a showroom and haggling with a salesman, though, which is why we've launched What Car? New Car Buying, a free service that lets you browse through discounted new car deals online.

Today, we've rounded up the best deals on small cars. Small cars, or superminis as they’re also known, used to be bought by single people or couples with no children – but the likes of the Ford Fiesta, Seat Ibiza and VW Polo have grown to the point where they can be considered all-round family transport, albeit with the odd compromise.

These deals are all based on our Target Price – What Car?'s way of making sure you don't pay over the odds. It's set by our team of mystery shoppers, and represents a fair price for your car. You could save even more, however, by going through our New Car Buying service.

Simply click on the relevant deal to find out more about it, or call us on 03302 216207 and we will be happy to help.

Audi A1

Audi A1 driving

Audi's smallest car may be more expensive to buy than the majority of its rivals, but it feels very classy inside and is fun to drive. Even cheaper A1s come loaded with all the equipment you're likely to need.

Ford Fiesta

Used Ford Fiesta 17-present

The Fiesta has long been the benchmark small car for driving fun and this latest version continues that tradition. However, it also offers a classier interior than its predecessor and swaps that car's fiddly, button-heavy infotainment system for a more user-friendly touchscreen.

What Car? deal: Save £1547 on a 1.5 TDCi ST-Line X – Target Price £20,038

We like the Rio's refined range of petrol engines, and this 1.0-litre petrol option should suit you well if you live in the city. The Rio is also well equipped, with even entry-level versions offering air-con, Bluetooth connectivity and electric windows.
