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.

get the best price

GT is the top-spec trim but it's available only with the fully electric e-208. In addition to the stuff you get on GT Line trim, you also get adaptive cruise control, sat nav, a 10.0in infotainment screen, heated front seats and blindspot monitoring.

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.
