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: Active

This entry-level trim comes with 16in alloy wheels (or steel wheels if you're buying the electric e-208), heated door mirrors, automatic lights, air-con and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Infotainment features include a 7.0in touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring, Bluetooth and a DAB radio, while safety features such as automatic emergency braking and lane keeping assistance are also standard.

Engine: 1.2 PureTech

The cheapest petrol engine is the 74bhp Puretech 75, but if you can stretch your budget to the 99bhp Puretech 100, you'll have secured the pick of the range.
