Our choice: buy used

The Kia Picanto is an outstanding choice in the city car market, but what swings our vote in favour of the used Volkswagen Polo is just how much car you're getting for your money.

The Polo is comfortable and quiet on the move, has a generous amount of interior space and its DSG automatic gearbox should prove to be a relaxing companion for the kind of stop-start driving you find in the city. And let's not forget that this particular car comes with an extensive and varied kit list including built-in sat-nav

Our recommendation, then, is to buy used.
