Review

One of the very best small cars, standing out for ride comfort, interior quality and hushed cruising manners. The 1.2 Puretech 100 engine is also punchy and doesn't drink much fuel. It isn't cheap to buy, though, and rivals such as the Ford Fiesta are much more fun to drive.

Trim: Allure

This is definitely the trim to go for. It comes with 17in alloys, rear parking sensors, electric rear windows, dual-zone climate control, privacy glass, automatic wipers and power-folding door mirrors, as well as a 3D-style digital driver display. You also get wireless charging in addition to all the infotainment and safety features the Active trim comes with.

Engine: 1.2 PureTech 130

This range-topping 128bhp petrol engine is available only with an automatic gearbox. It's very strong but, the cheaper, more efficient Puretech 100 is a better buy.
