Review

Not only is the 2008 stylish inside and out, but it also has plenty of substance to match, thanks to a lengthy standard equipment list (if you go for our recommended Allure trim), a well-finished interior and a range of peppy, economical engines. That said, we still think the Ford Puma and Skoda Kamiq offer buyers an even better package.

Trim: Allure

Allure is our favourite trim because it adds desirable extras, such as larger 17in wheels, climate control, privacy glass, power-folding door mirrors, two USB ports in the back, a raised centre console with driver's armrest, front parking sensors and the 3D-effect driver display. It also adds an improved automatic emergency braking system that takes the 2008 from a four-star Euro NCAP performer to a full five-star-rated vehicle.

Engine: 1.2 PureTech 130

The mid-range 129bhp 1.2 Puretech 130 offers impressive, flexible performance that’s relaxing around town and easy on the motorway. It's also impressively frugal recording 47.3mpg on our True MPG test.
