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

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.

Has even more low rev punch than the Puretech 100 petrol for more effortless performance. However, it's more expensive to buy and, well, diesel isn't very fashionable at the moment.
